Good folks, bad folks

1) I'll have to turn 'comments' off - someone left a malware link in a comment box.

2) A kinder person shared a recent press release on digg for others to see - thank you:


Word-of-mouth really is the best advertising that money can't buy .......

3) I've discovered that there are two types of people: one comes into the room and you can tell they are thinking "Here I am am, how can I help?"; another comes in and thinks "What can I get from this?". In English terms, this is translated: "Here I am - where's my cup of tea?" or "I'm here - would you like a cup of tea?"

Which are you?

Making a Difference

It's a challenge each day to make a positive difference in the world - even it it's just a kind word to the checkout clerk or mailman.

But here's a shameless plug for my wife who is using her fine art skills to raise the funds to dig a fresh-water well in Africa. She's trying to raise $4,800 in 2008 to dig a well for a village. In return, donors receive an original piece of oriental artwork. 100% of the donation goes to the well fund. Original greetings cards and bookmarks - $5 each; paintings 4x6"/5x7"/6x8" - $10/12/15 suggested donation.
Each painting is an original, painted on Japanese or Chinese Xian (shuen) ‘rice’ paper and mounted on art card. Each painting is then applied to colored mulberry paper and delivered to you ready for framing. Donate your tax-deductible gift at www.lifetoday.org/goto/carollowne

Make a difference today!
