The USPS is SO efficient private shipping companies hand off their packages to the USPS and charge you extra for the privilege.

One of life's harder lessons to take.
 
Truth be told, life is way too wonderful and short to waste time with people who don’t treat you right. So surround yourself with people who inspire you to smile. People who help you up when you’re down. People who would never take advantage of you. People who are honest and genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2014/01/22/7-signs-youre-hanging-with-the-wrong-crowd/

Rules to live by.
 
Rules Every Family Should Follow

They say home is where the heart is. But for some of us, home is not always a safe and healthy place. 

Be encouraged - it’s never too late to start building a healthy family! Whether it’s time to mend the family you grew up in or time to start new traditions in the next generation you’re creating, here are a few key rules to follow:

Keep Your Promises.
Say I Love You. -You can never say this too often. Never.
Say Please and Thank You.
Listen to Your Parents. -You’re never too old to learn from their experiences.
Laugh at Yourself.
Hug Often. -Don’t underestimate the power of human touch.
Always Tell the Truth. -It’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it.
Think of Others Before Yourself.
Love Each Other. -Say it, and show it. Act out your love in the way you treat your family.

Make a commitment now to start building (or rebuilding) a healthy family. You’ll reap the benefits for generations to come.

This should be shared far and wide. If you work with people who come from non-handshaking cultures, this could be quite beneficial to them as well!
 
First impressions mean a lot, and you don't want to be remembered for your limp (or too firm) handshake. Here's how to get it right.
At the forty or so seminars I give yearly, I always ask the same question: "Who here has ever received a bad handshake?" Invariably everyone raises their hands--no surprise there. Perhaps you’ve wondered, as I have, “How can so many people get something so simple as a handshake wrong?” What's even more startling is how long we remember those bad handshakes.

I'd almost feel bad biting one of their heads off... ... almost.

Story
Tagline
A reasoned (even passionate) debate can enlighten us all.
Introduction
I grew up in the heart of Silicon Valley and had considered myself relatively open minded/cosmopolitan. 

Traveling really opened my eyes more than anything else. To paraphrase: it caused me to realize there were (and likely will always be) areas I misunderstood my own misunderstanding. 

Now, I pride myself on my willingness to recognize and humble myself in the face of my own ignorance/misunderstandings.
