 Ponderings:
Shake Up Your Mind!
Learn from others outside your experience:
Appreciate how other people think by getting into the head of an innovative thinker.  Browse biographies and pick one written about someone outside of your field.  If you’re someone who loves numbers and facts, read about an artist.  If you’re artistic, read a business biography.  If you avoid politics, read about a politician.  You get the idea.  Take your mind where it doesn’t ordinarily go, and try to appreciate how the subject of the biography thought.
Shake up your mind!
 
If you are a chamber member, you can leave your business cards, rack cards and flyers at the Visitors center inside the South door to the Library. Be sure to get your information over here. It’s part of your benefit as an Edgewood Chamber member!

Stop by the office to see Madeline if you have any questions , or call my cell 85

If you believe fiat money and a pretend congress and administration are going to solve our budget problem … here are some wake-up moments for you:

Serious cuts and serious sacrifices seem to be the only answer. Stop printing more toilet tissue and get serious about solving the mess we are in.

And, don’t try to fool yourself or the people you are trying to be elected to serve … move your brain to the solution column.

Don’t denigrate Ryan if you have a solution involving play money.
