It is a strange world, money makes the world go around. But all buying is not good buying.

Kurt Bleke /Gwendolyn said...

How did you spend this day?

ANNA-LYS said...

ROLF
Our planet did actually rotate long before we invented the money, on the contrary the form of our coins is copies of Tellus.
;-)


KURT & GWEN
I took it piano! ;-)

Rolf said...

Well, I did not mean it literally.

ANNA-LYS said...

ROLF

oops, on the 27th we did go out and buy something:
a new mattress for us. but now we are sleeping so much better. usually we don't purchase anything.
but, you know.. it would be interesting if nobody actually did any buying on those 2 days.

LAUGHINGWOLF
Is Your drug Lööööve?


FOAM
It should have made people understand that it is the people that got the power of changing this world, not the few people we are choosing to be presidents etc. They are only marionettes, and they don't get it! LOL ;-)


ROLF
I am happy
that You are happy
we are sharing happiness
;-)

Winters Reaper said...

Funny honey… *laughs and grins*

I wish this was a national holiday…

Winters Reaper said...

Omg… that’s so true and I have always said that they are mere puppets.

Happiness is a wonderful thing to share; can we have a happy round robin?

(Your enemy must be King Bore :-)

Thanks for "puppets", I meant puppets on strings, but my Swenglish language makes me sometimes create words that doesn't fit in either Swedish or English contexts ;-) But, take it as a part of my personal charm ha ha ha ... and please correct me, anytime. I hope my brain is still plastic, so I can improve and develop my language skills. ;-)

ANNA-LYS said...

Jag har många "Buy nothing day"
Jag köper mat bara en gång i 2 veckor, och kläder mycket mycket sällan.

Little Lamb said...

Do you think this concept will work?

Can't tell You before
that country has entered.


PROTEGE
Glad You liked the quote,
and that You didn't buy.

TOMUSHKA
Förnuftigt av Dig.


LITTLE LAMB
I believe in humanity
I must believe that we
will save us selves
from the money demons etc
and start living in
ecological harmony.

I hope we will all have
a Little Lamb, some Chickens,
and so on, and help each other
no mater if You are rich or
poor, without money.

Dont buy - But Give.
Love,happiness,friendship,
togetherness,and Nature this is what makes the world turn and be content.

dianne said...

The 'black Friday' sale is not a concept which has taken off here.
Our mad shopping day is Boxing day, the day after Christmas day and I would never get caught up in it.
I have seen the bedlam on the news and as I said at another blog I have never seen people behaving so badly. ♡

Kurt Bleke /Gwendolyn said...

Sudan
Right?

Cynthia said...

superb idea, in fact once a week,
to start I will have a buy nothing
day.

Steve Malley said...

Oddly enough, I didn't buy anything on that day. Nice to know there was a reason... :)

Dick said...

Good idea but I'm afraid it won't help much, what people don't buy today they will buy tomorrow.
