Nice Donation!

A worker at a Texas thrift store made an unusual discovery while going through a box of donations – $17,050 in the pocket of an old coat. Guadalupe Reesor, who works at the Resale Shop owned by Jewish Family Service in Richardson, was sorting clothing donations and examining them for stains and holes when she discovered something in the pocket of a black pea coat – $17,050 separated into four envelopes. Reesor brought the cash to her boss, Assistant Manager Kristina Russell and Russell contacted Cathy Barker, chief operating officer at Jewish Family Service. The workers examined the envelopes and discovered one of them bore a name they connected to an entry in the store’s donor database. The donor, a 78-year-old widow named Sheri, said she donated her husband’s old coat after his death in January. She said she did not know about the stash of cash. The store cut Sheri a check for the $17,500 found in the coat’s pocket. Sheri awarded Reesor $1,000 for her honesty.

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
