~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
TEN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Journalist Maria Shriver, wife of Arnold Schwartzeneger, in her book, Ten Things I Wish I'd Known Before I Went Out Into the Real World, tells about these ten things she wishes she would have known earlier:
1. First and foremost: pinpoint your passion.
2. No job is beneath you.
3. Who you work for and with is as important as what you do.
4. Your behavior has consequences.
5. Be willing to fail.
6. Superwoman is dead ... and Superman may be taking Viagra.
7. Children do change your career (not to mention your entire life).
8. Marriage is a ... lot of hard work.
9. Don't expect anyone else to support you financially.
10. Laugh a lot.

Clean Homes, Clear Minds
A recently published University of Michigan study of some five thousand households found that children raised in homes rated "clean" to "very clean" completed an average of 1.6 more years of school and had annual wages averaging about $3,100 more than those raised in "not very clean" or "dirty" homes. Researchers suggest the outcome probably points to the importance of modeling organization and efficiency. - Psychology Today, http://www.psychologytoday.com/
