    I am quite happy this afternoon, particularly enjoying my lunch break, because I had my first major cost-savings sell today, and it was a success!

    Just watched Obama get sworn in as president of the United States. A proud moment indeed!

    A very big occasion it was. I watched it also but stopped once that lady started reading poetry.

    Yes, it was. I videotaped it while I was at work, and watched the important parts tonight at home.

    He's right, but that must be tempered with reality to a degree. Winston Churchill once remarked that WWII was won in great part by the people, 99% of whom were doing work they did not enjoy doing. My point is that sometimes, (most of the time it would seem) you have to do something you don't like in order to eventually get to the point where you can do the work you do enjoy..........even so, some people never make it there as more imporatnt concerns, such as raising a family, may come into play.

    Indeed sometimes sacrifices need to be made and like you said we have to climb up a ladder to reach a point we want to be at. Winston Churchill maybe my favorite historical figure along with FDR! So good choice.

    The rewards may be other than financial as well. I know quite a number of people who really enjoy their work, or enjoy things that their work permits them to pursue, who will never own an expensive car or weekend at G'staad.

    Progress can be slow. There are a lot of homes, particularly in the southwest that are quite big now but started off as very modest one bedroom structures. The owners added on to them as opportunity and need arose, over several decades.

    True everything isn't financial. Some people just find the joys in their life and enjoy them to the most.

    Mrs. campy went on a business trip to Madison WI this morning, so I'm batching it tonight. I went to the library this morning. Not much else.
