In the year 1900, our planet held 1.6 billion people. Now, just over 100 years later, the world’s population has doubled — twice. It took an unbelievable “twelve years…to go from 6 to 7 billion” people. For scientists, that’s a sobering cause for concern — especially since humans add another 80 million people to the earth each year.
Your mind’s made up. There’s no going back once you’ve made a choice between Door No. 1 or Door No. 2. You’re not a waffler, you weighed pros and cons, and you’re confident you picked correctly. Or not.
The air conditioning is on. It’s been on a lot this summer because, without it, you’d probably melt. Yes, you’re hot, and we’re not talking wow-you’re-looking-good-tonight hot. We’re talking about sitting-in-front-of-the-A/C vents-just-to-survive hot. Whew!
Savor solid gardening tips, mouth-watering recipes in ‘To Eat’
Your boss is a very powerful person. When things need doing, he makes sure they’re done. He knows people, knows when to act and when to be patient, and how to get the best from his employees. He’s a class act. Everybody wants to work with him.
Every day, from morning til night, you chug-chug-chug along. Yep, you’re a busy kid with lots of ideas. You help around the house, ride your bike, play with friends, read books, dig in the dirt, throw a ball, lay in the grass. There’s always something down the track to do — until you run out of steam.
You must have rocks in your head.
For most of your life, you’ve had a good relationship with God.
You looked everywhere. Why is it that when you put something away for safekeeping, it ends up being safe — from you? Why is it that you always find whatever you’re looking for in the last possible place you’d think to look?
The bar was all of an inch in diameter, but it was perfect.
In your lifetime, you've wished upon many stars.
You'd pack your bags in a heartbeat.. Yep, if they ever come up with a commuter bus to outer space, you'll be first in line for tickets.
TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER: Find philosophy, theology between the covers of 'A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home'
They say it can't be done.. You can't teach an old dog new tricks, they say, but you've spent a good amount of time doing it successfully anyhow.
The first time you heard that song, you were stunned.. You wanted to turn around and listen to it again.
The other day, while playing outside, you spent 10 minutes watching ants.
TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER: "Is Work Killing You?" blames volume, velocity, abuse for poor employee health
You set goals at the beginning of the fiscal year and you already know that your employees won't make them.
The package was wrapped so nicely.. The paper was festive, the colors zesty with frou-frou ribbon and a shiny bow on top.
The Christmas tree is long gone.
Happily ever after.. That's how things go at the end of a fairy tale. The handsome prince weds the beautiful princess, dragons are slain, wicked witches become dust, peasants rejoice, and they all live ... well, you know what comes next.
The song always pops up when you least expect it.
'My Parent Has Cancer' a volume of support for teens, young adults. Truthfully, the bad news came as no surprise.
You always wanted to be a princess.. Growing up, that's what you told people when they asked.
How many kids do you have?
Bring harmony to your house with 'Secrets of Happy Families'. Six o'clock, right on the nose.
All for one, and one for all.. That could've been the motto for you and your two best friends.
TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER: 'Vatican Diaries' details eye-opening stories of scandal, politics behind papal walls
You and God had a little talk this morning.. You told Him about your day ahead: what you wished for, the people who needed Him especially today, the ideas you had and troubles you carried.
Dad said you can't have the car this weekend.. That's OK.
You only wanted a job.
Today, there was food on your table.
Your mother scared the daylights out of you last week.. She said she was going for a quick walk but when she didn't return three hours later, you went looking for her.
History is filled with half-truths, especially about our heroes.. Lincoln, for instance, wasn't the stern, humorless man that old photos lead you to believe.
So far, you've resisted.. You've resisted closing up shop, selling your business, downsizing yourself out of a job.
TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER: In "Saturday Night Widows," young women cope with their husbands' early deaths
You never paid close enough attention to the "part" part.. You were young (too young!) and in love when you walked down the aisle, nervous and sparkly-eyed.

Your friends all know better..
