~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"A life with love will have many thorns, 'but a life without love will have no roses." - Unknown

Wake up late, in a panic
Rush to get ready
Dress hurriedly
Don't eat
Drink lots of coffee
No spiritual reflection
No exercise
Don't plan your day
Focus on your failures.

Never smile
Be selfish and unfriendly
Criticize, blame, complain
Think negative thoughts
Dictate, direct, command
Don't forget to nag
Don't overlook mistakes

No time for lunch
Harbor resentment
Keep rushing
Don't communicate
Keep it all to yourself

Worry about tomorrow
Be rigid and cranky
Retire with bad thoughts
and a full stomach.

Wake up early - don't rush
Breath slowly and deeply
Have some quiet time

Greet everyone
Smile a lot
Compliment often
Listen more - talk less
Beware of giving advice
View your work as a privilege

Express appreciation
Do your best
Welcome change
Relax your neck muscles
Plan time for relaxation
Throw away negative feelings
Let go of anger and guilt

Leave work at work
Review your accomplishments
Plan pleasurable events
Eat well at night
Recognize your blessings
Lots of love

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

AND MORE AMORE: Part 1 of 2 [April 18 & 28]
- From the PUNY Group

Cynthia MacGregor:

When a knight's dressed in zinc,
With a clank and a clink,
That's armor, eh?

If her acting is dearer
And her last name is Shearer,
That's a Moira.
When you're swimming near Venice
And the ocean's a menace
That a mare

When the horse goes up and down
And the last name's "Go-Round"
That's a Merry

When your friend looks at Othello
And says just what is that fellow,
That's a Moor, eh

When you sing Do, Do, Do,
'Cause that's as high as you can go,
You need more Re.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Why do halogen light bulbs last longer? . . .

Hot-burning "halogen bulbs" can last two or three times longer than regular bulbs because they are filled with chemically active halogen gases that preserve the filament.

The filament of an ordinary light bulb burns out because atoms of tungsten evaporate from its surface, so that it becomes thinner and thinner until it breaks. The evaporated tungsten is deposited on the inside surface of the bulb, where it forms a dark deposit.

The gas inside a halogen bulb combines with the tungsten atoms that condense on the glass, removing the deposit. When the combined molecules touch the hot filament, the tungsten is redeposited there, and the gas is released to do the same trick again.

Halogen bulbs don't last forever, though. Although the filament does not evaporate as fast, it does eventually develop thin spots, and the bulb burns out.
