~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Work to become, not to acquire. - Elbert Hubbard



"He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much;

who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;

who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;

who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;

who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it;

who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;

whose life was an inspiration;

whose memory is a benediction."

Bessie A. Stanley (b.1879) in Notes and Queries July 1976

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

From Employment Applications . . .
Part 2 of 2 [Sep 17, 26]

"While I am open to the initial nature of an assignment, I am decidedly disposed that it be so oriented as to at least partially incorporate the experience enjoyed heretofore and that it be configured so as to ultimately lead to the application of more rarefied facets of financial management as the major sphere of responsibility."

"I was proud to win the Gregg Typting Award."

Small Typos That Can Change the Meaning:

"Education: College, August 1880-May 1984

"Develop and recommend an annual operating expense fudget."

"I'm a rabid typist."

"Instrumental in ruining entire operation for a Midwest chain operation."

Special Requests & Job Objectives:

"My goal is to be a meteorologist. But since I have no training in meteorology, I suppose I should try stock brokerage."

"I procrastinate--especially when the task is unpleasant."

"Please call me after 5:30 because I am self-employed and my employer does not know I am looking for another job."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

How CD Burners Work

With the rise of the MP3 format, burning your own music CDs has never been so popular -- or so easy. CDs have become one of the most widely adopted data-storage mechanisms, and high-tech, lower-cost CD burners are part of the reason why. Find out how CD burners write (and rewrite) data to a compact disc.
