Priorities and a Jar

2017 Priorities and a Jar

Sanidumps.com started as a little hobby (a hobby is an activity, interest, enthusiasm, or pastime that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation, done during one's own time) back in 2006.

The following story is one that's been circulating for a while. I believe it holds a very important message regarding appropriately setting of priorities in our lives, which I do many times in my life, this was especially true for the 2017 year.

A professor of philosophy stood before his class with some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks about two inches in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was full.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly and watched as the pebbles rolled into the open areas between the rocks. The professor then asked the students again if the jar was full.

They chuckled and agreed that it was indeed full this time.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. The sand filled the remaining open areas of the jar.

"Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this jar signifies your life".

The rocks are the truly important things, such as family, health and relationships. If all else was lost and only the rocks remained, your life would still be meaningful.

The pebbles are the other things that matter in your life, such as work or school.

The sand signifies the remaining "small stuff" and material possessions.

If you put sand into the jar first, there is no room for the rocks or the pebbles. The same can be applied to your lives.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are truly important.

Pay attention to the things in life that are critical to your happiness and well-being.

There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, or fix the disposal.

Take care of the rocks first - things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just pebbles and sand.

Current Sanidumps.com Priorities

  • Maintain the website hosting, structure, coding, database, security, etc. (techie stuff)
  • Maintain the current information and data, e.g. updates
  • Add new places/locations that are received
  • Maintain current features e.g. apps
  • Add new features that are requested
  • Search for new dump station/point locations


Both Google and Apple made changes to their software which prevents our apps to run on the newer versions of software available. We still get updates from users with older versions of software, so I know it's not our end that causing the problem.

I have plans of getting the apps back running but with "Priorities and a Jar" and a "System Crash" I have not been able to devote the time required.

System Crash 2018-05-05

We have some sad news today, our web host had a power outage while copying files for the Sanidumps.com website and they lost all information/data for our websites on the server. (Other websites were also lost) So, in simple terms I do have backup of the data/code and I will have to rebuild all the websites.

This will take time and I hope to have some sites up and running within a week (Cancel ALL plans / activities / commitments etc. for the next period of time). Yes I know a long weekend is coming and I will be doing my best to get the site up and running before the weekend.

I appreciate the patience of our users and all status/updates will be posted here. I will not be responding to individual emails while I'm focus on restoring the websites.

2018-05-20, Most of the website is up and running but there are many items in the background that still need to be repaired/replace to have the website running previous to the system crash.

Happy RVing,
