3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I'm reasonably pleased with my reaction to minor frustrations. Bradford, gridlocked by a few inches of snow, disrupted our evening routine then I've had issues with Blogger AND JustUnfollow. I've just unfollowed JustUnfollow and replaced it with unfollowers.com, but the Blogger issue is due to repetitive copying-over, which buggers up the HTML over time, so it means that every now and again I have to set up this blog from scratch.
The weather/traffic may also bugger up my client appointments today! In all this I have successfully focused on my responses rather than the circumstances - progress!

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
The Late Late Show - Richard Ayoade
When a family cat died in ancient Egypt, family members would mourn by
shaving off their eyebrows. They also held elaborate funerals during
which they drank wine and beat their breasts. The cat was embalmed
with a sculpted wooden mask and the tiny mummy was placed in the
family tomb or in a pet cemetery with tiny mummies of mice.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Dig beneath your feet, there you will find a spring. The place where
you are now is crucial. Never try to avoid that which you must do.
