Walker Report posts for the 5,500th time in three years

The Walker Report just posted for the 5,500th time since June 16th, 2006! We are struggling to get to the half million hits mark before the 16th of June which is our 3rd anniversary. For some reason our numbers are slowing down. We need 20-thousand hits to hit the mark.

Help us by checking us out and soliciting your friends as well! We are almost there. In three years we have covered every type of event and person imaginable since we started. They include: Sports figures, Religion, Community, Media, Neighborhoods, Seven presidential candidates, many Congressmen, Senators, Governors, Mayors, former Presidents, Veterans, Spurs championship, an American Idol, actors, actresses, entertainers, and everyday folk.

And of course our favorite subject: Kids of all ages! When you type in someone's name in the upper left hand corner of the blog and click the search button, everytime that person or event was covered, it will come up.

For those of you who don't realize it, you can download any photo from the blog for your own. So what is it going to be? Help us get our hit number up so we don't get discouraged and think that our time is coming to an end.

Send us your info to promote your event and we will also attempt to cover the event and the person you wish.

45 tips for a great life when you are old and feeling good

L-R: So whatcha doin?

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. (amen!)
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting every where.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
