For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.
Arthur's latest Computer Care column, about setting up all those new electronics you got for Christmas, was published on December 24th. Click here to read it.

Now here's something interesting- I'm giving it a try and I thought you might want to, too. The company's name is YouData. They are trying to convince consumers like us that we should be the ones controlling our own data and selling our own attention, not third parties like broadcasters, newspapers and spammers. By creating a MeFile at YouData.com, you control what ads you see and when you see them. Best part - you are selling your attention directly to interested advertisers, for real money. You get paid for giving them your attention. You can use the funds to buy music and video online, donate to charities or keep the change myself and do whatever you want with it.
It's real. They pay. Check it out.

Draw a Stickman
Don't even think about clicking here unless you have some time to play! This activity is as addictive as Angry Birds! The premise is simple: using your cursor, you draw a stickman.
Then the program animates it and the fun REALLY begins...
Promise Yourself ...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Let's work to get the word out: friends don't let friends shop retail!
Have a remarkable week!
