Drinking your way to the top

So somewhere in the world exists a boss who pays his staff bonuses based on the amount of alcohol consumed and the ability to hold it together better than him. I'd be on the poverty line given I'm not a big drinker at all.

What an absurd way of giving out bonuses, I've never heard of anything like this. It was being discussed on the radio this morning when I was driving to work so of course I had to Google and see where this was.

Head in the clouds

Wasting time frustrates me and not knowing how to do something instinctively has much the same affect. I like to divide and conquer. That said - Skydrive is doing my head in and making me want to scream.

I'm trying to move into the 21st century, okay I'm already there but I'm trying to synchronise all of my electronic equipment and foolproof it, or me, as the case may be.

6WS- When a photo says so much

As always when I go to a writers group meeting or a writers workshop I come away brimming with ideas and wanting to write for hours. Today's travel writing workshop was interesting and informative.

It combined nicely with the magazine writing course I did on my 9 week self imposed unemployment stint last year.

American justice - I think not!

So the story which has been in the news recently in Adelaide is this one about an Australian single mother who has been jailed in America for fraudulently claiming food stamps for her children.

If this is evidence of the American justice system then I think Obama should hang his head in shame.

Learn from others experiences..or not

Sometimes you can learn from others experiences and sometimes you still have to do it yourself to really get it. 

Last Friday I got two tattoos, I've been talking about getting another one forever. The new ones, a tiny one on my wrist which is immensely meaningful for me and then another on my ankle. The one on my wrist was just a small blip on the pain radar, the ankle on the other hand...holy cow.

Life is like coffee, so what does your cup look like?

I'm back online today after several days of rest and relaxation in the Riverland with family and friends. Awesome time away, I just wished they all lived closer.

I have so much to do to get started for the New Year but was reading through my emails which have built up over the last week and came across something which I wanted to share.

You really need to watch this because it's so true and should be understood by all of us http://www.lifesecretsonline.com/blog/2013/10/15/LifeIsLikeCoffee/
