~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"It takes but one positive thought, when given a chance to survive and thrive, to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts." - Alexander Lockhart

I am more than thirty years a chef. I know what I am doing and each day I do my absolute best. I cook for you from my heart, with love. It must be the same with service. The waiter must serve with love. Otherwise, the food is nothing. Do you see? Many times, I will leave my kitchen and go to the tables to take the orders myself. It starts right then and there. The feeling the customer must have is relaxation. If not, then his evening is ruined. Mine, too, by the way. How can he love, if he's not relaxed? People ask me all the time what secrets I have. I tell them there is nothing mysterious about 'Lutece'. I put love in my cooking and love in the serving. That is all.
By André Soltner - of 'Lutece' restaurant in New York

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


IF you introduce your wife as "mylady@home.wife".

IF your spouse sends you an e-mail instead of calling you to dinner.

IF you use a pocket calculator to divide the bill at a restaurant.

IF your wrist watch has more computing power than a Pentium III PC.

IF you are involved in an on-going interactive game over the Internet with someone in Guam.

IF your excuse for not wearing a tie is because it would limit critical blood flow to your brain.

IF you own one or more white short-sleeve dress shirts.

IF you think it's more fun to take apart a video game than play it.

IF you go on the rides at Disneyland and sit backwards in the chairs to see how they do the special effects.

IF your I.Q. number is bigger than your weight.

IF you've ever tried to repair a $5.00 radio.

IF you've already calculated how much you make per second.

IF all your sentences begin with "What IF".

IF the blinking 12:00 on someone's VCR draws you in like a tractor beam to fix it.

While it may be true that being a missionary adds years to your countenance, I wasn't quite prepared for the revelation! We had just hit civilization on furlough and I was in a crowded Sydney shopping mall frantically trying to find shoes for my little boy. As I hurried through the store, I recognized a friend in the crowd, "Hi, Wendy!" I called out. She stopped in her tracks for a moment and exclaimed "Oh, I thought you were your mother!" I was 30 years old and my mother was 70! I am still trying to figure this one out, but my mother was delighted! - By Carol Tasker, Australia
