African Bush Squirrel/If You Learn From Defeat….
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
Pet of the Week, 08/19/2017, below:
This is the photo of a close up of a rodent (African bush squirrel, paraxerus African squirrel) and a child’s face. It reminds me so much of my daughter when she was a kid, loving so many of her pet rodents (from guinea pigs, chinchilla, rat, etc.) while growing up. There is a special bonding between a rodent and a child.
Quote of the Week, 08/19/2017, below:
Zig Ziglar once commented, “If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.”
Hilary Hinton “Zig” Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012) was an American author, salesman, and motivational speaker. “Zig” Ziglar was born in Coffee County in southeastern Alabama, to John Silas Ziglar and Lila Wescott Ziglar. He was the tenth of 12 children. In 1931, when Ziglar was five years old, his father took a management position at a Mississippi farm, and his family moved to Yazoo City, Mississippi, where he spent most of his early childhood. The next year, his father died of a stroke, and his younger sister died two days later. He was in the Navy V-12 Navy College Training Program and attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.
Ziglar later worked as a salesman in a succession of companies. In 1968, he became a vice president and training director for the Automotive Performance company and moved to Dallas, Texas. In 2007, a fall down a flight of stairs left him with short-term memory problems. Nonetheless, by 2010, Ziglar still traveled around taking part in motivational seminars.
