Solving A Problem

Solving a problem starts with changing your viewpoint.
(The Christophers - Three Minutes A Day, Vol. 41, 19 October)

At 11:00 a.m. this morning some snow was falling.  Nothing sticking to the ground or roof yet.

I've downloaded the latest version of 7Zip to my computer.  I'm studying how the program works.  I learned that the F9 key toggles whether you see one panel or two panels on the screen.  I've learned that the program supports encryption that uses a password to open.

Most of our troubles come from expectations that are unrealistic and cannot be fulfilled.

Welcome Fall

Can I share a link to a card on my eCard service via Blogger?

This is a test I made the other day on Facebook, when my eCard service broke for two days. The problem went away by itself after I asked them if there was a problem.  Now I want to see if I can share an eCard to my Blogger account.

Welcome Fall

It looks like this test on Blogger will work.

Pattern of Our Lives

The cooling of a relationship, the dark clouds of unemployment, the diminishment of health. All speak of that which we do not welcome; and yet, like winter, they are an inescapable part of the pattern of our lives.

Remain Humble

If you noticed someone in error then correct this person and his mistake in a humble way. If he does not listen to you, blame yourself only; or, even better, do not blame anybody, but continue to be humble.
(Marcus Aurelius, in A Calendar of Wisdom, by Leo Tolstoy, 30 March)

Principles are universal - that is, they transcend culture and geography. They're also timeless, they never change - principles such as fairness, kindness, respect, honesty, integrity, service, contribution. Different cultures may translate these principles into different practices and over time may even totally obscure these principles through the wrongful use of freedom. Nevertheless, they are present. Like the law of gravity, they operate constantly.
(Steven R. Covey, The 8th Habit, p. 46-7)
