"Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision." - Peter Drucker

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Doubt sees the obstacles,
Faith sees the way!
Doubt sees the darkest night,
Faith sees the day!
Doubt dreads to take a step,
Faith soars on high!
Doubt questions, "Who believes?"
Faith answers, "I!"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
My forgetter's getting better
But my rememberer is broke
to you that may seem funny
but, to me, that is no joke
For when I'm "here" I'm wondering
If I really should be "there"
And, when I try to think it through,
I haven't got a prayer!
Oft times I walk into a room,
Say "what am I here for?"
I wrack my brain, but all in vain
A zero, is my score.
At times I put something away
Where it is safe, but, need,
The person it is safest from
Is, generally, me!
When shopping I may see someone,
Say "Hi" and have a chat,
Then, when the person walks away
I ask myself, "who's that?"
Yes, my forgetter's getting better
While my rememberer is broke,
And it's driving me plumb crazy
And that isn't any joke.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Mary was having a tough day and had stretched herself out on the couch to do a bit of what she thought to be well-deserved complaining and self- pitying. She moaned to her mom and brother, "Nobody loves me ... the whole world hates me!" Her brother, busily occupied playing a game, hardly looked up at her and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Mary. Some people don't even know you."

Most of you probably know that Windows comes with a built in calculator. Did you know it's more than just a basic calculator? If you hit the View menu, you can choose from either "Standard" or "Scientific". The scientific mode gives you lots more buttons. Granted, I don't have the first clue what most of those little buttons do, but they do look impressive :-) (OK, if you right-click the button and select "what is" , you'll get an explanation)
Also, first time users tend to get thrown by some of the symbols on the calculator. The "+" and "-" signs are fairly self-explanatory, but the "*" and the "/" can be confusing. The "*" is your multiply button and the "/" is your divide button. Notice that these little symbols are repeated on your numeric key pad.
Here's another cool little trick. You can copy & paste operations into the calculator. Here's an example:
1. Highlight the text below by holding the mouse left click button and moving the cursor over it. Then right-click the highlighted text, and select Copy from the resulting menu:
2. Open up the Calculator by clicking (Start button, Programs, Accessories, Calculator). Then click on the Edit drop down menu and click Paste.
The calculator should come up with 2500. Cool huh?
If you would like quicker access to the calculator you can copy a short cut icon for it and place it on your desk top and/or in your quick launch tool bar.
