Thought of the Day - 6/18/08

Thanks, Dave, for sharing this profound thought.

Sometimes it's the quietest moment in your day that carries the biggest impact; you won't need thunder and lightning to tell you that you've come upon a huge revelation. Changes you want to make might not be the changes you need to make -- so be open-minded about the conclusions you come to. These conclusions might not be what you expected or even what you wanted, but they will be the best answer. Don't hesitate to start down this new path. As soon as you do, you will know it's the right way.

Works for Me Wednesday #6

If you been a regular reader of my Works for Me Wednesday posts here at All Things Cherished, you know I love it when a product has more than once use.

Again, this week we have a product that is multi-talented.

Petroleum Jelly

  • Protect your furniture. Dab water marks with petroleum jelly and let sit for 24 hours. Wipe off excess and polish furniture as usual.
  • Protect your light bulbs. Rub a little petroleum jelly on the threads of the bulb before you screw it in (especially for outside lights where dirt and dust can cause the bulbs to stick) and it wont stick again.
  • Protect your nails. Dab petroleum jelly on the skin around nails to prevent hangnails and to soften cuticles.
  • Protect your pet. Rub a little petroleum jelly on your cat's or dog's cracked paw to soothe the discomfort.
  • Protect your hair. In a pinch, rub petroleum jelly on the roots of the hair (instead of hair grease) to make braids, cornrows, etc., neater.
  • Protect your lips. Rub a little petroleum jelly on the lips to prevent chapped lips.
  • Protect your tools. Rub a little petroleum jelly on your gardening tools before storing to prevent rust.

Make Me Laugh Monday - Miscommunication

A co-worker got a pen stuck inside the office printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don't have time for that now since we were late for a meeting. I told him to just put a note on the printer telling people not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk. So he grabbed a piece of paper and scribbled a note on it. I left before he finished the note.

About 20 minutes later, a technician comes in laughing.

This is what the technician found. Sometimes things don't always come out the way you want them to...
