Got to enjoy motorcycling in to work this morning, with no one cutting me off or trying to merge into me, and it looks like the rain is goiing to hold off long enough for me to get home and remain dry.

Got recognized by a 'customer' of our help desk today and thanked for doing my job. A little recognition really does make all the difference when people tend to call help desks pissed off an yelling.

Don't worry. I am also a contributor to every one of the negative threads you mentioned.

I have the joy of visiting my oldest daughter and son-in-law, and enjoying my 17-month old grandson! My daughter is pregnant with grandchild #2, and at her doctor visit today, everything is looking A-OK! I will be sad to leave on Monday for a 950-mile drive back home, but I will definitely enjoy the memories of this visit!

Cheezy is not uber-focused on the negative and is not a lost cause ...
Cheezy is simply a realist!

Gravity is a lie --- the world sucks, this place death trap absolutely no one gets out alive ...

Thinking happy and good thoughts about other people does not make them good or happy just as it will not make you good or happy.

and today is a great day! Why? I lam still alive

What could be better than waking up before sunrise and living to see the sunset. Every time that happens I feel great because I get another chance to do it again.

I'm paying my bills, my grass is really green this year, and my pipeline is full.

I'm reading a lot. That's when I know life is going well.

Balling like there's no tomorrow. My Rays are over 500, though they had it handed to them today.

Well, that's the news from Passedpawn's domain, where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.

Woot!

HEY, A good one? My Michigan born wife, transplanted to the south here, dealing with a Adult-child who she keeps saying should be in Adult daycare. (I waste all my extra money on Hotrods and Harleys, stitches, liquid skin, welding and now brewing)

Deals with customer service complaints all day for a major company, comes home only to have a Hawk scratch both pillars on her (2nd) ever new car.. that's her coming out with a broom to whip the hawks ass. He/she is smart enough to fly off.


Cheers, we could all work for the IRS. NOW them are some hated people.

I realized while sitting in the car waiting for wife & son to finish shopping that happiness isn't a state of mind that you were born with or whatever.
The video is right,it has to be a concious decision. Just realising the "other guy" is probably going through the same stuff helps.

My roommates were quiet and let me take an hour nap today after work. Tomorrow I brew (hopefully). Way to go roommates. You deserve a beer. I think I shall offer them one.
