Every great man, every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavor, has known the magic that lies in these words: every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.
W. Clement Stone


I'm off again, see y'all Friday

Aw c'mon, wouldn't you rather be de-motivated? ;)

Adversity: That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable.

Achievement: You can do anything you set your mind to when you have vision, determination, and an endless supply of expendable labor.

Cluelessness: There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots.

Futility: You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take, and, statistically speaking, 99% of the shots you do.

Ineptitude: If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly.

Irresponsibility: No single raindrop believes it is to blame for the flood.

Power: Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. But it rocks absolutely, too.

Procrastination: Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.

These are some caption lines for de-motivator posters available at http://www.despair.com - an absolutely massive and hilarious collection is available. Personally, I have two framed posters adorning the hall to my home office. The first is Incompetence, the second Mediocrity. Years after I bought them they still make me smile :)

Ya know, Kasia, I kinda like Seans as well.

Pattie, I know you had a great time and hated to leave. Looking forward to some pics from the new camera.

Sean, I love it! From what I've seen of you something to slow you down a bit might be a good thing :)

Sorry I missed the Lifecruiser celebration. Congratulations to you both. You have a wonderful take on life and I enjoy reading you. Hope you have many more. Don't know about the cake but maybe there's a little Dom left? Maybe? Not a chance as I figured. Well, lets open another bottle!

Funny you should mention that polka dot tie, Ally....
And the PMA is teriffic!
