Borrowed Editorial: Let’s Get Our Priorities Straight

Place the elderly in prisons. They will get a shower a day, video surveillance in case of problems, 3 meals a day, access to a library, computer, TV, and gym. Put criminals in nursing homes ... They will have cold meals, lights off at 20h, 1 bath a week, live in a smaller room and pay 4,000 a month!!! It's pretty damn sad that we treat prisoners better than the elderly!!!

Long Term Quote...

In your business you have to COMMIT to long-term results, rather than instant gratification. If you don't, you will most likely quit if you run into obstacles that don't give you that short-term gratification. But if you focus on LONG-TERM results, you'll see the bigger picture and every little "failure" will become a small piece of SUCCESS. ~ Anders Haslum

Have a great week!!! Make things happen!!! :)
