A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in
front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very
large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it
was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them
into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the
open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it
was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the
jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a
unanimous "yes."

The professor then produced two stubies of Home Brewed Beer from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. :lol:

"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to
recognise that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the
important things--your family, your children, your health, your
friends, and your favourite passions (Home Brewing) --things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The
pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house,
your car. The sand is everything else--the small stuff."

"If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no
room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you
spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have
room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the
things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children.
Take time to get medical check-ups. Take your partner out to dinner.
Play another 18. Brew another Beer. There will always be time to clean the house, fix the disposal, take out the trash etc.

Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."


One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer
represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to
show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always
room for a couple of beers."

:chug:

No. This post was very beautiful Ken.

But you should let that retro thing die a quick but painful death.
