I spend some time reading a lot of the posts on this forum, especially the last few months filled with doom and gloom, so when I saw this quote it really registered with me.

“It ain’t about how hard you can hit: it’s about how hard you can get hit
and keep moving forward.”

As a boxer, this line makes perfect sense spoken by Rocky Balboa. But it is also a
fantastic metaphor. No matter how talented you are, if you get put off by the
first setback, then you will never be successful. So keep moving forward.

Sweet surprise!  :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:

I tried one of those Bitcoin Faucets a year or so ago and after only making a couple of bucks in several months I put it on the back burner. Well yesterday I saw an ad somewhere that made me curious enough to logon again and thanks to the growth of Bitcoin price it had grown to over $29, so I grabbed it to put in something that is paying me much higher payments of Crypto daily. Actually I use it to pay for my referrals first upgrade so we both make more.

My wife purchased a world map and hung it on the kitchen wall, then handed me a dart and told me, "Stand here and throw this at that map and wherever it lands we are going for a two week vacation when this Pandemic ends". Looks like we will be spending some time behind the fridge. :present:  :present:  :present:

A wealthy Sheikh  was asked about the future of his country, and he replied,

"My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I ride a Mercedes, my son rides a Land Rover, and  my grandson is going to ride a Land Rover, but my great-grandson is going to have to ride a camel again"
Why is that, he was asked? And his reply was,
“Hard times create strong men, strong men create easy times.  Easy times create weak men, weak men create difficult times.

Take a few minutes to read this page now and it may save you a lot of headaches later. If nothing else, it tells you how to get around the pop-up so you have a chance to resolve it. Above All - Do Not Call the Phone Number They Give You, it is NOT Microsoft.

Off-Topic / Have you tried switchmail.com yet?

I did a Tap Research Survey this morning that led me to search for ways to do physical mail from a website. You deposit funds for postage, then upload a PDF or DOCX file to send to any USPS address and send it.

Sounds like the ultimate solution for those who have more money than time. No buying stamps or going to the Post Office to send it. Do everything right from your home computer.

I am almost curious enough to try it, so I thought I would ask around and see if anyone else has.

A man was looking for a place to sit in a crowded university library.

He asked a girl: "Do you mind if Take the seat beside you?

The girl replied, in a loud voice, "No, I don't want to spend the night with you!"

All the people in the library stared at the man, who was deeply embarrassed and moved to another table.

After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the man's table and said with a laugh: "I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking; I bet you felt embarrassed, right?"

The man responded in a loud voice: "$500 for one night? ..... I'm not paying that much"

All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.

The man whispered to her: "I study law, and I know how to screw people".
