    The Impact Of Attitude

    This may belong more appropriately in an expereince group about quotes, because it stands well on its own.  Although long, it is a favorite of many.  Its source is Charles R. Swindoll, a writer and clergyman, still very much alive as of this posting.   I also include another...

    We Can Do Anything

    When confronted with an urgency or necessity that is clearly humanly possible but still seems beyond me, my circle of friends, or a work group tasked to get the deed done, I think about Sunday, September 3, 1967. On that day, at 4:50 am to be precise, Sweden went from using the...

    It's Relieving To Find My Positive Inner Self Again.

    For too long I have let the negativity of my situation influence my positive energy. I may have lost something important to me, but as I look back, clinging to that thing I thought I wanted to badly has destroyed my positive outlook and energy for years.From now on I will simply...

    Two dogs walk into the same room at separate

    times. One of the dogs walks out of it after a few minutes wagging his tail, and the other dog walks out growling. A woman goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise, she finds that the room is full of mirrors. The...

    The Super Bowl

    I am one American testosterone driven man who couldn't care less about the Super Bowl tonight. The more I hear about it, the more I dislike it. I even heard the Major League baseball Network talk about it. When I was a kid there was never so much hoopla over it.

    A Great Way To Begin A Year, Or Just Any Day Of The Year

    I borrowed this from Ann Landers. In that respect, it may be considered a long quote. On the other hand, I have carried a copy of it around with me for more than 10 years. It was a New Year's column, but it is a menu we can select from on any day of the year. Doing positive...

    Consider The Alternative
