Ten simple steps to recognizing your problems – and solving them own your own
A look at TV talk shows and newspaper advice columns reveals that a lot of people out there have serious psychological problems. They suffer from intense depression, suicidal thoughts, paralyzing anxiety or uncontrollable urges, and they need immediate professional help. Chances are, though, that you’re not one of them.
Let’s face it: You may be insecure, lonely, stressed or anxious. You may have trouble meeting people or keeping your marriage together. But these garden-variety problems are not life-threatening, nor are they defects whose roots require a therapist’s weeding.
Made of over 5,000 pieces, and almost 3 feet long, this [USD] $499 Millennium Falcon is the biggest LEGO set ever made or sold.
Yep, it’s finally happened. Catherine has had her first haircut courtesy of…MUMMY! Uh huh…I grabbed the scissors this morning and snip, snip. Admittedly, it was a bit challenging as she was dancing to the Wiggles at the time but I don’t think it turned out too badly considering she was moving a lot?!
The fringe – newly cut and maybe a little crooked?
After her hair has dried and isn’t “styled” anymore!
I smsed Scotty to tell him what I had done and his response was, “We’re not *that* poor!”

Deciding what to order -
Dave and myself doing the take photo-of-a-photo shot.
Some of the crazy stuff that hangs from the ceiling. Reminded me of the hanging mobiles for babies. I had to resist reaching up and grabbing and batting these items around.
What I ordered – Nachos, Mexican style.
The meals are very big. Don’t be put off if you order a single burrito – it is a very generous serve.
I received a telemarketing call from a company I have purchased from previously, so it wasn’t a cold sales call (don’t we all love these types of calls).
Anyway it was outstanding. The person on the phone introduced herself (+20 points), the name of company (+10 points), and the offer – a review of office networking requirements (+20 points). She also stated the reason she was calling was because they had done business with ‘you people’ previously (-1,000 points).
Next she asked how many computers running in the network – I responded that I had three. She then stated that this deal wouldn’t be suitable because it doesn’t meet our requirements. Our meaning the vendor’s requirements, not mine (-1,000,000 points).
She then politely finished the phone call. Overall she was pleasant to speak to, and perhaps the most refreshingly honest salesperson I’ve ever spoken to!
