Good things to read.

The three good things that I am reading now are Fortune Magazine, Golf Magazine and the local paper. I do not have a long attention span for reading thus magazines and articles are perfect for me.

Good things to watch.

I am big dork when it comes to TV: I like AX Men, Jeopardy and watching The Voice with my wife.

Good things to use.

Straight Razor. Expensive upfront cost but cost effective in the long run. Can be passed down generations.

Cell Phone. Great because it allows me to be on the go and also be close to receiving emails and in contact with family out of town

Computer. I am lost without an instant connection to the internet and the world around us. I love reading the news and I will read about anything and everything.

Dale Furse – Science Fiction and Fantasy author

These are Dale Furse’s good things.

Good things to read.

The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan. A fantasy and first time book by the author. Great writing and even better story.

First Lady by Kay Cottee was my first non-fiction book and it has stayed with me since that time. She was my inspiration to work at what I wanted to achieve in my life. Kay was the first women to circumnavigate the globe without stopping and her book made me realise, I had to believe I could make my goals reality before I could begin the journey to that end.

Your local daily paper, especially the For Sale section you never know what you might find.”

Good things to watch.

Dr Who. I have watched Dr Who since I was a child and I can just remember William Hartnell as the Dr. Ha, the special effects are funny today but they were the best back in the 60’s.

Independence Day. The one movie I have watched many, many times.

John Carter is a recent movie and not knowing anything about it and dubious about the content with such a simple title, I found I enjoyed it immensely. Mars is such a great backdrop, don’t you think?”

Good things to use.

Your eyes to see all the wonders the world shows you everyday. It’s amazing what you see when you stop to take notice of your surrounds.

Your imagination to free you from invisible constraints. Constraints bind you to the here and now but in your mind anything can happen and if you go with it you just may find what you want in real life.

Your heart for love and forgiveness. Please, life is way too short to harbor grudges and miss out on the love around you so freely offered.
