Precautionary Measures


Happiness. I bought some books in order to learn the first principles of spare time. If you haven’t read Leo Bormans’ book “The World Book of Happiness”, Mr. Bowie totally recommend that you do. Click here for more information.

  1. Mom says thanks for telling her about this book. She definitely is going to look into buying it. She spent her youth being a pessimist, but as an adult has discovered that she can find a silver lining in absolutely everything.

  2. Sounds like a good book, Herman. Mr. Bowie looks like the proud librarian in residence! There is a good book of cat poems you and Mr. Bowie might like called “The Poetical Cat, an anthology”, a collections of cat poems edited by Felicity Bast. My favorite poem in there is “The King of Cats Sends a Postcard to his Wife”.

  3. Not sure what the book is for – to find out how to fill your spare time or to find happiness… I have a solution, throw away the book and volunteer. It will fill your spare time and who could not feel happy to make someone’s (or some animal’s) life a little bit better?

  4. Very interesting, Herman…I will look for it. I read some kind of positive thinking book every morning…sounds like I should add this one to my list, especially if World Leaders are reading it. 🙂

  5. What a great project, thanks for the recommendation. What’s your definition of happiness? A warm cat and espresso? I’m pretty happy right now with my sleeping dog next to me and a cup of tea 🙂

  6. Just back from popping over to the book link. Thank you for this impressive recommendation, I shall follow up with my local library. Can the answers be found in research or the writings of experts? I’m curious. I have found that ‘giving’ makes me happier than ‘receiving’, whether it’s as simple as some time with a friend or making a good meal for Mr. B, I just feel happier when I attempt to make someone else happy. Now, throw in some coffee and a treat and Boom! That’s a day worthy of a diary entry.

    Dear Mr Bowie, there’s this book by a guy named Dr Seuss, about a cat in a hat. Might be interesting, maybe dad can read it to you a bedtime? xo

    Dear Herman, And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.) ❤

    • Thank you for this heartwarming comment, my dear Boomdee! I like to give presents to my friends, family and Mr. Bowie too… 😉
      And once in a while, I give myself a present! 🙂

      We’ll check out the Dr. Seuss book…

  7. Cats and books have always gone together Herman. I’m sure Mr. Bowie will tell you it’s because they both contain much wisdom and are relaxing and soothing to the soul. I followed the link and will definitely look into that book, thank you for the suggestion. Today it’s Thanksgiving day in the U.S. and among the things I am thankful for is your wonderful blog in which you share so many good things, most of all Mr. Bowie.

    • Thank you so much for this heartwarming comment, Angela. Much appreciated!
      I apologize for the late reply… Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”
