Is Life Passing You By?
One day, you're 25 years old and feeling your oats...and the very next day, you're 65 years and headed to the Old Folks Home. I like to tell the story of Grandma Moses, who was an embroiderer, but because of arthritis in her hands, she became a painter at the age of 78, which is amazing in itself! She lived to be 101 years old , and during her lifetime, she painted over 1,000 pictures, and she became a celebrity all over the world. Many of her paintings were made into greeting cards, and that's one reason who she had world-wide fame.

SOS! My Serious and Silly Articles (popularity list)
When I started writing in late 2006, I never sought fame and fortune in writing, and that's why I entered the Free Content Market instead of the Paying Markets, and I have kept my sanity because of it. In 2012, I still give my writing pieces away, and I get satisfaction if the website owner of newsletter editor publishes the piece. In Free Content, I don't have a room full of rejection slips; I still have my style in tact; I still have my confidence in writing; and I still write to please me, myself and I.
Paying Markets vs. Free Content Markets
When I first built my website, I knew there would be plenty of humor. But, I wanted something more that that. I wanted my website to be interesting as well. To do that, I had to write articles on different topics, that were and are important to me, such as good healthcare; quitting smoking; losing weight and environmental issues.
In the year 2012, I have over 360 articles on hand on various topics, and the list can be seen at the following link; (ideas for articles of your own)
Articles/360+ in alphabetical order
Most of my articles, are between 800 and 1.200 words long, but I have written shorter pieces, such as the following; None of the long pieces will be edited or modified in any way...all are available "as is."
People aske me where my ideas for my humor pieces come from and the answer is always the same; around the home; the work place and out in the streets. A few examples follow;
You don't see a lot of women wearing dresses anymore...you see a lot of men wearing them...but not women!
One of my fellow-employees, told me that he was on his high school basketball team and they lost one game by a score of 68 to 4! "Boy, that other team must have been quite a defensive team," I told him. "Nah" he said..."We were just a lousy team!"
When I first came online a few years ago, I was pretty naive. For example; I thought a person who cussed a lot was a cursor; I thought a megabyte, was something done to a slice of pizza; and I thought a cookie was bought in a bakery or baked in the home...silly me!
No Football for my father;
My father never liked football, because every time a team went into their huddle to call a play...he thought they were talking about him.
I was going to take my father to a Pancake Breakfast, sponsored by the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, but I forgot the time and the date, and where it was to be held.
Irritating eyes; If you're suffering from dry and/or irritating eyes, and your eyes don't have enough moisture...I think I have a solution for your problem. Why don't you look at your paycheck...that should bring much-needed tears to your eyes!

Are We Suffering From Terminal Seriousness? (Joke of the Week)
This piece was only a year old in May, 2012, and I think it has the best chance to fight for the lead than any other article at this point in time. In July, it occupies the #8 spot, and has the most realistic chance to take the lead, and could challenge for the lead in late 2012.

I'm pulling for this piece, because it's my bible...it contains links to all my work.
It's not location; location; location OR drill, baby, drill...
It's ideas; ideas and more ideas!
I've always considered myself a strong idea person...both good and bad ideas as well. I've learned over the years, that bad ideas can become good ideas with patience and with time. And many times, it is patience that is the key to getting good, usable ideas in the first place.

I'm from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the state colors are red and gold, and I chose to create this page in the state colors.
Storage Page (humordoctormd)
When I first built my website, it was a certain amount of pages...well over 100. About two years later, I down-sized, and reduced the website by about 25%. I did not delete the graphics, but I put them all in a storage place, and opened it up to the public, so they could see how the graphics as they are.
Along the Bumpy Road of Life;
This page could be the most creative and colorful
page I've ever created;
Everything begins with an idea, and I've been in the creative business for over 40 years. What everyone needs once in a while, is a jump-start on their creativity...as if firecrackers going off in their heads...in the form of ideas...to let those ideas flow, etc. You might just need a little spark to get you started.

What is one of the best ways to learn? From others, right? Learn from their experiences...good and bad; their mistakes; education; skills; talents; and creativity, too! If you asked American's how they get their ideas...you'll probably get over 200 million answers...and all of them would be right, because everyone get ideas in their own way, etc. Ideas usually come from existing things...in other words...modification of an existing idea. So, it's good to keep your eyes and ears open!

I've said it before...and I'll say it again. The visitor is the most important person in all this publishing process...because if were not for the visitor, there would not be any of this!
gratitude; (definition); the quality of feeling grateful or thankful;
Words cannot describe the gratitude that I feel to all the visitors, who have taken the time to visit my website/writing site over the years, and reading my articles, is just unbelievable! I have never ended an article with a link, but I think it would be appropriate here, because this is my way of saying thanks to all my visitors etc. (Writing site traffic in July 2012: approaching 400,000)
