    We took up a donation at our last Christmas party and donated money in honor of our bosses to a local charity. They loved it better than a gift! We also made sure that we had plenty of healthy food choices and of course exercise--dancing!!

  Did you forget to take one step back, along with everyone else?

Activities... I hate them, but the White elephant gift exchange is always popular.

I was at one company where the limit was $10. The owner spiked the gifts with two $25 items. The interpersonal dynamics during the exchange got a little ugly, particularly when fueled by some alcohol.

    Not sure about what kinds of activities go over at your Christmas parties, but here's your chance to suggest the buffet menu includes *plenty* of healthy choices : )

  A game called half and half where tickets are sold to all the people you can reach then the night of the party you pick a ticket for the winner and they get half of the aount of money you collected...always fun to do emoticon

    Good one but I am one that feels we can never reach the perfect. Once there, there is no more to reach for. Reaching for the stars!! The stars are always there and it is a wonderful goal!! THANK YOU for a good quote!! I like it!!

    I'd like to add being blessed. Sometimes we are successful in spite of our best efforts.

  If that's the case, I may never reach success cause I can't get close enough to perfection. Diligent effort, maybe, but perfection ? ?

  Maybe, but many Sparkers might exceed the limit of 120 minutes for cardio. I heard stories on the news about people who were double dipping. First at 10:00 p.m. (or midnight) Thursday, then returning later in the early morning (4:00 a.m.).

Finished vs. Complete

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

No dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world: Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.

"When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"
