WITandWISDOM(tm) - March 2, 2001
Sign on an executive's desk: "An ounce of motivation is worth a pound of threats, ten pounds of pressure, and a ton of reminders."

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
In his book, "Stories for Sermons," Arthur Tonne, tells how a famous organist was giving a recital in an eastern church. The instrument was not supplied air electrically; it had to be pumped by hand. A young boy was engaged to do this for the occasion.
Everything was going along fine until the lad put his head around the side of the organ and whispered, "We are doing pretty good, aren't we?"
"What do you mean by 'we'?" objected the organist. A few minutes later, in the midst of a beautiful strain, the organ suddenly stopped giving out any music. Desperately the organist tried all the stops. No use.
Then again he saw the head of the boy bob around the corner, a broad smile on his face. He said, "Now do you know who I mean by 'we'?"
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me always to remember that I cannot live a meaningful life alone and I cannot do your work alone. Help me always to appreciate the work of others and support them as they support me. And help me always to remember that all that I am and have comes from you. Gratefully in Jesus' name. Amen."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
When leaving a parking lot recently, I was following a pick-up which had the greatest bumper sticker. It read: ETERNITY! Smoking, or non-smoking? - Barbara Nasralla
I have been e-mailing with Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and Netscape's WebMail - but which will let me retrieve messages in Microsoft Outlook? - Derrick Andrews, Plymouth. N.H.
You usually read web based e-mail services with a Web browser, but as a convenience some of these services also allow you to use e-mail programs such as Outlook to retrieve your messages. Of the three you mention, only Yahoo! Mail works with Outlook (though Hotmail works with Outlook Express). For instructions log j in to Yahoo! Mail, click Options and head to POP Access & Forwarding.
