12 of 12 - March 2009

7:27am - Oops, I forgot March's 12 of 12 of the 12th, so I had to cheat and do it on the 13th this month.

7:28am - Brooke, Boo, Sully and I all join in waking Amanda up for school.

7:39am - Today's lunch napkin poem for Amanda.

7:54am - Spent most of the day trying to get Carbonite set up and running smoothly on my laptop.

3:33pm - Working on "Upside Down Leadership" for iGrow, Track 3.

3:36pm - Brooke brought home Sonic drinks. Happy Hour at Sonic is one of our favorite times of the day.

5:20pm - Working on a little English homework. Look at Amanda's GIANT pencil!

6:49pm - School patches are always coming off in the wash, so here I am apply clothing glue and ironing them on again.

6:57pm - Amanda coming in (with Boo) to show off her latest fashion design.

7:52pm - Every time I paint, Boo comes into my office to offer moral support. More than once, she has even "worn paint" in support of my efforts (she has rubbed against a freshly-painted wall).

7:54pm - Applying paint to the last wall!

8:24pm - Brooke, Boo and Sully all came to my office to keep my company while I painted. They thought it was cold. I offered Brooke a roller to get the blood flowing, but she politely passed.

Watch Yourself

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Israeli Sense of Humor at the UN

A representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses. When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath!'

He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.

When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them.'

The Palestinian representative jumped up furiously and shouted, 'What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then.'

The Israeli representative smiled and said, 'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech....'

Email Virus Warning

I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus. Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one. It appears to affect those who were born prior to 1965.


1. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice
2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail
3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person
4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you
5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment
6. Causes you to hit 'SEND' before you've finished
7. Causes you to hit 'DELETE' instead of 'SEND'
8. Causes you to hit 'SEND' when you should 'DELETE'
9. Causes you to hit 'DELETE' instead of forward
