A New Solution For An Old Problem

While reading an article by Tamara McClearly about Justine Musk and the inventor’s journey. It reminded me that not too long ago, I was sitting on the couch trying unsuccessfully to wrap a leaky bag of frozen vegetables around my leg with an elastic bandage.

Motivational Monday: Never Quit

29th of October 1941, Winston Churchill I have many favorite quotes, but this one is right at the top. The actual quote is “never give in”. I take it as never quit. No matter how daunting. No matter how unlikely. No matter how up hill. People may think you are crazy. They may be right. But you’ll never be able to prove them wrong if you quit.

Then I was reminded that in 2012, four people in my life, including my mother, battled some type of cancer. Fortunately, all ... more >>
