I am an active practitioner of the mind-set that life is what you make of it. How a sentence is worded reveals a lot about an individuals view on life. For example, the following three comments: a) The glass is half-full; b) Today is partly sunny; c) I havent reached that point YET are all of the TYPE of sentences that come out of my mouth on a regular basis. Another truism I totally buy into is Perception is Reality.

You are a product of your environment, and by environment I mean the people you interact with. When you are young, you look to others for an example of how you should live your life. If you are lucky, you are surrounded by people of good character, and you learn and develop a similar set of behaviors and ethics.

More kitchen wisdom for you. A task I got to do a lot of was washing pots and pans. There were these huge pots that we used to cook soup, or gravy, or curry sauce. They would be kept simmering for hours, so that the contents were hot and ready to serve at a moment's notice. As the contents were dispensed and the level went down, a series of rings were almost burned around the inside of the pot. The gravy pots were the worst, we sold a lot of gravy those days.

As usual, I've been busy this week. I chaired a meeting at our local Toastmasters club. We had a couple of guests attend, which is good. You always need to be on the lookout for new members for your club. I have been in Toastmasters for about 12 years now, and I get a lot out of it. If you have a chance to check it out, find a club in your area and pay them a visit. Their site is www.toastmasters.org. You can look up information on clubs in your area there.
