~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Life is a long lesson in humility. - Sir James M. Barrie

"Any secrets to keeping a friendship alive?"

Relationships are active, not passive. To be effective they must be seen as a work in progress.

The owner of a small video-production firm recently told me about an argument he had with a former employee. "I really flew off the handle and chewed the fellow out. He left in a huff and never came back."

Why was he telling me the story? Today, that same former worker is the vice president of a large firm the owner would love to have as a client. "I learned my lesson," he told me. "The bridge you burn is one you may need to walk across some day."

Value and nurture every association - even if you become separated by time or space. If you spend weeks, months and years developing an alliance, don't let it die. Pick up the phone, send a Fax, write an email, keep in touch!

Stay connected - no matter what!

By Neil Eskelin

My violin teacher was instructing a large group class. She showed them her violin and said, "This violin was made in the early 1800s in Vienna."

Someone in the audience raised their hand and asked, "So you got it used?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Diabetes by the Diameter

If you're a man and wonder about your risk for diabetes, check out the size of your waist. In a study of more than 27,000 U.S. men, the risk of diabetes was 70 percent higher in those whose waists topped 34 inches than those with more diminutive bellies. The risk doubled at 36 inches, tripled at 38 inches, and more than quadrupled if the waist size stretched above 40 inches.

Earlier research suggested that the risk of diabetes is five times higher in women with a 36-inch waist than those with a 26-inch middle.

Extra belly size raises your risk of diabetes more than extra pounds.
