~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
JUST A DIME
(c) 2000 - Steve Goodier
Can one dime make a difference? Here is a woman who turned a dime into . . . .
Her name was Martha Berry. This clever woman founded the Berry School in Rome, Georgia. She scraped together funds from every source possible. One day she approached Henry Ford, of Ford automobile fame, and asked for a contribution. Patronizingly, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a dime.
Rather than be insulted or discouraged by the "gift," Miss Berry bought a package of seed peanuts with it. The seeds were planted and tended, and they eventually yielded a large crop which she later sold.
Again she called on Mr. Ford. "Here's the dime you gave me last year," she said, handing him a coin. Then she told him of the return she had realized from his token investment.
Ford was so impressed that, in the years to come, he gave millions of dollars to the school.
Can one dime make a difference? Yes, if we invest it well.
How about one hour of your time? Can it make a difference? Or how about the life of one person? Can a life like yours or mine REALLY make a difference? The answer to each of these questions is the same. Yes, if we invest it well.
Now... how are your investments doing?

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Things You NEVER Want to Hear the Exterminator Say...
You know, when you build your next house you might want to consider using steel instead of wood.
It's a shame you didn't get that extended protection rider on your pest protection policy.
Do you know anyone who owns a bulldozer?
I need to go back to the office to get a bigger truck.
Do you have someplace you could stay for the next three days?
You wouldn't happen to have some EXTRA pesticides in storage around the house, would you?
"This could get expensive."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
We've all experienced some real financial downturns, so just for a quick diversion, draw a graph and watch the economists' reaction.

Think you can fly a helicopter?
Try it. It is fun! Click on the helicopter, hold the left mouse key down to go up and release the key to go down. It's not as easy as it seems either.
