A Kilo of Lime




A picture is worth a thousand words.




A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step ~Lao-Tzu




A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed. ~Henrik Ibsen




Cowards die a thousand deaths. The valiant taste of death but once. ~William Shakespeare




Even though you know a thousand things, ask the man who knows one. ~Turkish proverb




He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson




James Cagney portrayed Lon Chaney, the Man of a Thousand Faces.




I'm not a big fan of thousand island dressing but I'd like to visit the Thousand Islands.




In Roman numerals it's M.

In binary code it's 1111101000.

A gambler might call it a dime.




Personally, I've had a grand time coming up with all the things I've posted until reaching my 1000th post today.




A thousand thanks for joining me along the way.




Feel free to add trivia or quotes related to 1000 in the comments.

Kudos on the Kilo! It has been fun reading!

Jazz said...

1000 posts? I am speechless. And duly impressed.

Next time you can quote from the 1001 Nights...

A man can read a thousand travel books, but it is not worth one single trip.

Forget who said it... maybe someone else remembers this saying.

Desmond Jones said...

1000 posts?!?!?

(*jaw hitting floor*)

So, (recalling the 'druggie' slang of my youth) will you be making a Key Lime Pie tonight?

for a different kind of girl said...

Wow! One thousand posts?! That's amazing! I've been at this three years and don't have quite half that. Well done!

My favorite:

If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you?

:P

That made me curious, shouldnt I then have close to 1,000? So I looked and I am at 862! All that sewing and not enough goofing off I guess!

Suldog said...

1,000 posts! Awesome!

Here's a little something in commemoration of your longevity. Don't spend it all in one place!

Lime has completed ten to the third; raise your glass and spread the word!

Thank you for your contribution to the blogosphere. Our days are better when we include a twist of lime.

Jazz said...

By the way, I've left you an award at my blog.

Jim said...

A thousand seems like a lot. Maybe you should go back and count again . . . ;-)

And I would walk 500 more

Beach Bum said...

Congrats on the 1000 posts, all excellent works and insights on family and life in general.

Here is a 1000 quote that I hear at work far too often:

One "aw shit" erases 1000 at a boys of good work.

Jocelyn said...

Poodle: I'm back to say I just searched you on Facebook (lord knows I want to be your friend EVERYWHERE), and your first and last name combination didn't turn up anyone that seemed like you or had the right location. Are you going by something else there?

Do you still have my first and last name to do a search?

Moannie said...

Insanely fantastic. Congratultations, Lime. And here I am washed up and out at 144.

Mona said...

74WIXYgrad said...

Congrats on one thousand posts.

Keep up the good work as I enjoy your unique view of life.

And seeing that you are the ruler here, I think it's fitting that my verification word is "reign"

Brian Miller said...

Spanish Princess said...
