You Are Calculating
When you play, you play to win... but that isn't readily apparent at first. You are sneaky.
You plan your moves carefully in a game, and you don't show your hand too early. You like to take the other player by surprise.

You are most likely to succeed in a career that relies on strategy. You have no problem mastering internal politics.
You are highly observant and good at making predictions. You are patient enough to wait for your time to act.

Money is not really an important motivator for you when it comes to work. You want a job that's interesting first and foremost.
If you're not engaged and challenged in what you do, you feel like there's no point. Lots of money would be nice, but it wouldn't make you want to get up in the morning.

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


A Special Day

September 4, 2013

What’s special about September 4? Perhaps it’s your birthday or anniversary. That would make it special. Or maybe you could celebrate the historic events of this day. For instance, in 1781, the city of Los Angeles, California, was founded. Or this: In 1993, Jim Abbott, a pitcher for the New York Yankees, didn’t let anyone get a hit off his pitches—and he was born without a right hand. Or if you’re a TV fan: In 1951, the first live US coast-to-coast television broadcast was aired from San Francisco.

But what if none of these events and facts seem to make your September 4 special? Try these ideas:

Today God gives you a new opportunity to praise Him. Psalm 118:24 says, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Today God provides for you and wants your trust. “Give us day by day our daily bread” (Luke 11:3).

Today God wants to speak to you through His Word. The believers at Berea “searched the Scriptures daily” (Acts 17:11).

Today God desires to renew your inner person. “The inward man is being renewed day by day” (2 Cor. 4:16).

With God as your guide, September 4—and every day—can be special.

This is the day the Lord hath made,
He calls the hours His own;
Let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne. —Watts
Each new day gives us new reasons to praise the Lord.

Read: Luke 11:1-4

This is the day the Lord has made. —Psalm 118:24
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 143-145; 1 Corinthians 14:21-40

You Are Easygoing
When you play, you don't play to win. You play to have a good time and relieve stress.
You are never a sore loser, and you don't brag about any wins you rack up. You have excellent sportsmanship.

You are most likely to succeed in a career that is more intellectual and merit based. You need to be rewarded for your talents.
You don't like to play politics or even think about the social aspect of things much. You rather perfect your craft.

Money is not the only thing you're looking for in a job, although you may need it to pay off all your school expenses.
Luckily for you, you tend to do well at whatever you choose to do, so the money comes naturally!

You Are Aggressive
When you play, you play to win - and you go right for the kill. You are an intimidating player.
You play hard, and challenge others to meet your force. You don't mind winning through brute force.

You are most likely to succeed in a career where guts is rewarded. You don't mind pounding the pavement.
In fact, a competitive environment is likely to appeal to you and motivate you more. You like to win!

Money is very important to you in your work, and you can muster up interest in any job that pays enough.
For you, money equals freedom, fun, and power. You are willing to work hard to get your share.

Good evening, AZ...terrible day! And a long way to go.

The new system went live on Monday and payroll was here working. As of this minute checks will not print.

Lots of problems all day, mostly with the system timing out as we work in it. We are a bunch of not very happy people, but resigned to whatever will be, will be. Nothing we can do about anything.

“But no other companies are having problems”. As if it mattered....WE ARE!!! And have been all thru testing....does anyone care? I have my doubts. *sigh*

Hope you got yesterday off and enjoyed the day. Hope today went well. *hugs*

Yes.

It’s pretty rough, but I DID talk to the Shrink about him and she confirmed my expert diagnosis. ADHD.

I wrote out three simple 16 bar songs for him today:
Ode to Joy by Beethoven
Going Home by Dvorak
Morning by Grieg

By the end of the lesson he could play all three WITH left hand chords.

His mother is in ecstacy.
