The more things change the more they stay the same

Sure, cried the tenant men, but it's our land. We measured it and broke it up. We were born on it, and we got killed on it, died on it. Even if it's no good, it's still ours. That's what makes it ours-being born on it, working on it, dying on it. That maks ownership, not a paper with numbers on it.

We're sorry. It's not us. It's the monster. The bank isn't like a man. Yes, but the bank is only made of men.

I am on vacation for the next week. My wife has flown to California for a couple of days to see her sister, so its me and the three kids (ages 6,3, and 2).

We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing

A moment of Peace

It is Sunday afternoon. All three of my children are sleeping, and my wife is at the Shop Rite. How wonderful these rare moments of peace are. How taken for granted they were in the past. Ah, the sound of little feet. No sooner begun, then done. Domo Arigato to the universe for that all too short glimpse of quiet.

Time is a precious commodity and maximizing your use of it is crucial. I 've been using the workout below to maintain and improve my fitness level. I'll do this for 2 to 4 weeks at a time, and then switch off to another program just to keep things interesting. Give it a shot, especially if you are presed for time and looking to get the most for your time spent. I'll do this routine Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. I get at least 8 hours of sleep at night and eat 4 to 6 , mostly small meals,
