This just in...

I have uncovered the mystery of life.

It's so simple I cannot believe no one has discovered it yet.

Wanna know what it is?

Wanna know how to get the most out of your life?

Forget about "Be Like Mike..."

No, we ALL need to "Be Like Toto..."

Not to get all philosophical, transcendental and hypothetical on you but, think about it...

Picture 4 characters, standing, quivering, shaking... scared out of their
minds (well those of them who had a mind). Each with their own wants and needs yet they share one common ailment... FEAR.

They all know what they want. They all know how to get what they want. Yet they all stand there quaking in fear, unsure of their next move.

Suddenly all their fears are washed away; all their inhibitions evaporate before their eyes; all their collective reticence dissipates in an instant.

And why?

Because their 4-legged friend revealed to them the force they all feared to be nothing more than a mere illusion.

When Dorothy, The Tin Man, The Cowardly Lion and The Scarecrow saw the man behind the curtain, their outlook changed in an instant. No longer were they prisoners to what they feared.

Again, not to get
all philosophical, transcendental and hypothetical... but don't you think we would ALL be more successful in our professional and personal lives if we all pulled back the curtain that hides what we lie in fear of?

Now... go click your heels three times, release your inner Toto and pull back that curtain!

Til next time.

So what is it that YOU fear??

My fear is my wife -- my incredibly beautiful, talented and understanding wife will one day awaken to the fact that her husband is a complete, childlike fool. And I will in turn lose the best thing that's ever happened to me. That is what I fear.

Toto rocks.

Well childlike is a good thing.....once in awhile. But depends on what type of childlike behavior is happening. We all have our inner "child" :)

Don't worry Steve...

Every man's wife eventually wakes up one day and finds she is married to a complete childlike fool... the real secret to life is all about what guy's do when they realize that their talented and sophisticated wives are more childlike than they let on... it usually comes to the surface around menapause... :) lol:)

great explanation of OZ. So now that the stock market has gone to the dogs we all get to be toto.

we all do need to lighten up.

BTW - one of favorite songs is "Over the rainbow".
