"It's not what you are that holds you back, it's what you think you are not." - Denis Waitley

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I remember once being fired from my job at a TV production company. When the boss told me I was no longer need, I thanked him.
You should have seen the look on his face. He expected me to be angry and was stunned at my response.
I viewed my losing the job as the opportunity I was waiting for. He gave me the push I needed to start my own business and I've never looked back.
Of course, it may be prudent to seek outside help, especially in serious situations. Don't be afraid to reach out for help. Our society has a support system for almost any challenge you may be facing. If all else fails, in a changing situation, remember the wisdom of the quote above: This too shall pass.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Lines You'll Never Hear in a Western
"I reckon I'll have me a half-caf double latte with a twist."
"Gentlemen, rather than get caught up in mindless reaction, let's draw upon our feminine selves for a more intuitive solution."
"Can we postpone this duel till 12:05? I gotta use the little boys' room."
Quick, pull the wagons into an irregular dodecagon!"
"Guns? We don't need no stinking guns!"
"Let's see. Hardtack and pemmican. That's three grams of fat, seven grams of protein, and two starches."
"Who let the dogies out?"
"You 'n' Slim round up them strays, and I'll tell Cookie to get started on the gazpacho and the fondue."
"That's him! That's the yella-bellied varmint who shot my therapist!"
"He was a strong man, a good marshal, and I reckon he had a keen eye for interior decoration."
"Hey, Buck, do these chaps make my bottom look big?"
"It's like I keep tellin' ya, Earl: men is from Tombstone, women is from Dodge."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
We were going out of state for six weeks and asked the neighbors' nine-year-old son, Mike, to care for our dog. We explained that the job required feeding, grooming, walking and, most of all, plenty of love and playtime. Then we asked Mike what the job would be worth to him. "I'll give you ten bucks," he said.

How many songs did Bing Crosby record?
Bing Crosby recorded more than 1,700 songs for commercial release between 1926 and 1977. Bing's real name was Harry Lillis Crosby. The nickname was given to him by a childhood friend who thought the young Harry resembled "Bingo," the lead character in their favorite comic book, "The Bingville Bugle."
