July 4th Trivia!

America’s Birthday is also celebrated in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and England. In Denmark, where people listen to songs and speeches about the friendship between the United States and Denmark, the celebration is known as ‘Rebildfest.’

Delaware’s delegation to the Continental Congress put a unanimous endorsement of the Declaration at risk. Delaware delegate George Read was adamantly opposed to the Declaration (many still harbored an affinity for Great Britain and others feared for their careers and the fate of their families), while fellow Delawarians Thomas McKean and Caesar Rodney favored its adoption. Yet it appeared that Rodney, who was suffering from terminal cancer, might arrive in Philadelphia a day too late to break the Delaware delegation’s deadlock. However, the insistent Rodney rode all night through darkness, lightning, and thunder to arrive just in time to cast his affirmative vote, without which the Declaration would not have been unanimous.

Very Bad Puns

Everyone needs a little humor in their lives and I am sure you will agree that much of what is here barely qualifies!  My friends and I have enjoyed sending each other pain through the effective use of very bad puns.   When life is starting to get too serious, stop by and read a few.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement

 

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

The human spirit needs to accomplish, to achieve, to triumph to be happy.

Happiness does not come from doing easy work.

But from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demands your best.

Is Facebook Killing Your Career?

The Internet Is Forever

Anyone that spends time online, including using social media such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Squidoo, YouTube, the list is endless, needs to understand that everything they post online can and will come back to haunt them.

Can you think of anything you did in the past that you regret?  Imagine having that come up on a Google search complete with pictures and video.  I still run into forum posts I made from the mid 90s.  Thankfully, they are mainly posts about building a home theater.

This is so important to remember – the Internet is forever and you should care about what you say online.  I have a motto I follow whenever writing anything online:

“If it feels good to write it then it is bad for business”

Make it your life rule to do your best

It will be your constant effort to be first class in everything you attempt that will help you conquer the heights of success.

Always do more than you’re supposed to do and you can have, be or do anything you want.

Do a little more than average and from that point on your progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort you put in.
