LACK OF MANNERS TIRESPLUS WHERE IS YOR MANNERS???? LABCORP: BAD MANNERS AND ABSENCE OF PROFESSIONALISM Great Russian writer Chechov said: “A good upbringing means not that you won't spill sauce on the tablecloth, but that you won't notice it when someone else does.” My friend Mr. C really loves this saying. Mr. C is all about etiquette. Even his dog Rex has good table manners. People can learn a couple of good tips from Rex. Then again, when Mr. C has company, he does not allow Rex to eat at the table. Unfortunately, most people are not ready to appreciate exquisite manners yet. Mr. C is doing his best to educate...

Dreams and goals.

REACHING OUR GOALS ASHWORTH HAS HELPED ME REACH A PERSONAL GOAL … Suddenly I didn’t like the view from my corner office window. I didn’t like my great office on 87th floor. I didn’t like success anymore. My "one day" has finally arrived. Yet, surprisingly, the delight hasn't played out exactly as I thought it might. The goal that had seemed so far out of reach for most of my life had become reality, but I didn’t feel the magic. I was not happy. I felt empty and incomplete. All my life I walked that upward straight-line, each step marked by an achievement. A trophy,...

Video game – reloaded

VIDEO GAME CENTRAL Introducing a consolidated version of “The Cat in the Hat” and other video games! Warning: the following video game contains disturbing images and strong, bloody violence.

Sally gives a list of tasks to her children: -         Find a cat -         Feed the fish -         Get milk -         Get mail -         Calculate the allowances for accomplished tasks.

VIAGRA FROM CHINA CAME CRUSHED AND DAMP POORLY PACKAGED A little blue diamond-shaped pill with obscure "Pfizer" inscription. A lifesaver, a gamekeeper, a guardian angel. Yep, that’s right. Viagra. A little super-powered anti- erectile-dysfunction warrior.  Phallic-death-defying drug. Viva Viagra! Initially a treatment for disabled and aged, it became a vital remedy for all. Hugh Hefners were joined by functional youngsters, gentlemen and dudes, turning themselves into exhilarating amusement park rides. And now even chicks, ladies and dames are taking the little blue pill to enhance the rides. Now it is called ‘Recreational Viagra’ and comes with a load of warnings. Is it truly recreational? We don’t think so. Promoting better sex,...

Surviving the cost of gasoline.

Surviving the cost of gasoline.

LOS ALTOS SHELL GASOLINE DESTROYS CAR MOTORS Gas prices are so high, that the sign at the gas station ‘We take Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express’ - becomes a warning rather than information. It warns you that after you fill up, they WILL take your Visa, your Master Card, your Discover and American Express... And your 401K. As if this was not bad enough, we now suspect that some gas stations are diluting the gasoline: high octane fuel – with the low octane, regular – with water, or ethanol, or possibly beer and maybe even jackass urine. We also suspect they are adding pollutants and junk...
Commercialized TV

Commercialized TV

INSULTING COMMERCIALS THEY ACTUALLY DO WATCH YOU MCDONALDS INSULTING COMMERCIAL Some TV commercials are insulting. Others are sexist, racist, ageist. Some are boring or plain stupid. A few are funny and artistic. And all of them are sneaky, manipulative, invasive, and are insulting your intelligence. You don’t want to be pushed, solicited and brainwashed. If you want to buy a car, you will research your options yourself, the way you want and whenever you want. You don’t want to be persuaded that Chrysler is the best. At least - not by unrealistic movie clip, and not now. Now you want to know who murdered the old lady....
Top Secret hotels.

Top Secret hotels.

ANOTHER TRAVELOCITY DON’T BOOK THROUGH TRAVELOCITY TRAVELOCITY TAKES THE MONEY AND RUNS Travelocity is taking on Priceline and Hotwire in the opaque-pricing market with their “Top Secret Hotels“service. “Top Secret Hotel” sounds intriguing.  We love to think, it is a piece of Paradise, reserved just for us and kept secret from the rest of the world. Because it’s this good. We don’t like to think, it is a slice of Hell, saved just to punish us for being cheap and kept secret from the rest of the world. Because it’s this bad. If the secret is revealed to the authorities, the hotel will become a CSI location,...
