Our power was off yesterday. No electricity from 5:30AM until 7:00PM! Of course, our well wasn’t pump was not working, but we always have a supply of very large and small bottle of water for drinking and hygiene. It was 98 degrees outside. However my office was cool and comfortable.
I looked at this Power Off obstacle as an opportunity to Power Up my Blue Creative /Yellow Planning. My Yellow Brain sorted and organized a collection of HI-LITER Newsletters from the Lab-Line Instruments, Inc., the laboratory instrument business my father and mother (Alexander I. and Sylvia Newman) founded in 1952.
I loved reading the newsletters and the business and personal ideas, suggestions and facts that were written on the faded pastel page.
My Creative Blue Brain was Powered UP! I decided to share some of the wit and wisdom that resonated with me in a new category called “No Bunk”: bunk (slang), absurd, ridiculous, nonsense, Bunkum (related to the word debunk).
The genesis of “No Bunk” is an expression my Green Brain Father (of blessed memory) would use when he thought something was not authentic or honest. I can clearly hear him saying, “That’s a bunch of bunk!”. This category has been a clothes line of serendipitous events, which have continued to wave at me over the past few years. Now, I am Powered Up to share “No Bunk” with my readers.
I decided to begin with one of my father’s favorite quotes, which became a Lab-Line slogan and appeared at the bottom of many HI-LITER Newsletters…
“THE LIFE YOU SAVE WITH LAB-LINE INSTRUMENTS, MAY BE YOUR OWN. BUILD THEM BETTER.”
The theory of building a BETTER life, business, family, school, community, country, etc. is “No Bunk”.
