Shaun keep up the good work regardless of what blackbird and avenging angel say. If your postings irritate them, then they shouldn't read them, simple as that. To me they add a lot of value, that's whay I keep on coming back to the sight.

Shaun, thanks for the words---although not appreciated by all. Must tell you that i have enjoyed it and made a printout for my staff and they are all reading it now.

To tell you the truth, twice a day i get onto this forum and there are certain people who's postings i just enjoy to read, and one is you and ofcourse the Cybershrink himself===lot of wisdom from both of you.

As a CEO of a large group of companies, i have the attitude that : ANYONE CAN LEARN FROM ANYBODY, IRRESPECTIVE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS, EXPERIENCE, TITLE AT WORK, ETC ETC ETC.
so the 30 minutes a day in my 16hour a day shift, is absolutely worth spending on this site.

Lastly, i enjoyed the part that says: the best sermon is lived, not preached.

Come on people, I didn't mean to start an uproar. AA, sorry I'm offending you, & yes I do have a few screws loose, or maybe they're just rusty... You are entitled to your opinion, whatever it might be. I do understand that these posting get irritating sometimes. But never take it for granted that someone else just might need to read something like this, right now.

To everyone else, thank you for your support. Maybe to stop irritating people I'll try find shorter "reading material". Food for thought is meant to be exactly that.

AA, don't worry, I'm not offended, but rather appreciative of your feedback. Straight talk never killed no-one.

Have a great day,
Cheers,
Shaun

Avenging Angel, in case you haven't noticed, you are the one whining now. You're welcome to express your disapproval of something, but to ask Shaun if he is the local wimp just shows your lack of maturity. Stick around though, maybe someone like Shaun can teach you some decorum.

Shaun, keep up the good words. I enjoy reading them anyway.

Avenging Angel, when you see that it is "Reading Material" from Shaun, dont read. It is as simple as that. People like you are irratating - not people like Shaun.

Shaun, I enjoy reading the material you post. Whether CS does is another story, but I am sure that if he thought it was out of line, he would have said so by now.
So, continue - it's good to have positive and provoking thoughts first thing in the morning!
