I have no idea how to add a friend of do much else on this site.I was able to write back to you, I think.Way too complicated for me!I try to comment back to you from MY PAGE and I can't even find the text box?I'm using my state-of-the-art iMac, and I'm on the Firefox browser. I think what the problem may be is that this site was built for Internet Explorer, or some other PC type browser. I'm having similar trouble with Veterans Today here:…See More

I’m sure you’ll agree we should all come together "collectively" in a joint effort to help "clean house" of all the corruption, for the future of our children and grandchildren.
I believe we're on the right track and am genuinely appreciative for sites such as this one where we continue to become informed, as well as to inform others ...and take action by way of our phone calls, e-mails, letters and public demonstrations where we can show elected officials "NO WE WON'T" ...put up with their corrupt antics!!!
I'm looking forward to working with you.
I hope you have a blessed day.
p.s. I invite you to check out all the different groups on here. You’ll find the people are very friendly and will genuinely appreciate your views.
The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).
It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.
Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.
Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.
Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.
Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.
Be friendly and helpful.
Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.
Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.
Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.
Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.
Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.
Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.
Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!
The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.
You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.
Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
