    Ripened seeds of Wisdom, Michael...It seems no one wants to stop and savor the fruit....Just keep on push, push, pushin along....then we feel the thirst, but when we go back for the fruit...' Tis all spoiled.I'm in Marketing/Advertising and the mantra
    to go is: You're only as good as your last sale...(forget your yesterday success)
    My mantra gives the up-shots shivers...'If your last sale is good, then, hell, lets share the whole damn story with the sales team today so we can all go out tomorrow, and bring back business.Fine Penning Michael. '''''''''''''''''''''''''FRANK
