4 hints for handling mail

Friday, July 27, 2012

You come home to a towering stack of mail. What next? Everyone’s routine will be slightly different, so find out what works for you.

1. Toss junk mail the minute you identify it. This is the first and key step to handling mail.

2. Put magazines away. Many people display magazines on coffee tables or in special magazine racks, but consider keeping them out of sight.

3. Open bills and throw away everything but the parts you need. Put those bills in a special correspondence drawer or area, where you can also keep stamps, envelopes, an address stamp, and a checkbook. Or pay online.

4. Put invitations in a special pile, along with anything else that needs noting on your calendar or that requires a phone call. In a folder, keep invitations, directions, tickets, e-mailed plane tickets, reminder notices, any information related to an upcoming event.

Thursday's Tee-hee's

Thursday, July 26, 2012

A lizard and a socialite heiress had a baby girl together. They named the newborn Iguana Trump.
-----------------------------------
A trooper pulled a car over on a quiet country road. As he walked up to the driver, he said, “Excuse me, ma’am, but why were you driving erratically? You were weaving all over the road.”

“Thank goodness you’re here, officer!” she gasped. “I almost had an accident. I looked up, and there was a tree right in front of me. I swerved to avoid it but there was another tree. I swerved to avoid that one and there was another. It was terrifying!”

Calmly, the officer reached through the window to the rearview mirror and said, “Ma’am, there was no tree. It was your air freshener.”

(I wonder if she was a blonde?)

MONEY AND HAPPINESS

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Money may affect your happiness differently depending on …

• … what kind of person you are. Money has different value to different people. You might love to collect modern art, or you might love to rent old movies. You might have six children and ailing, dependent parents, or you might have no children and robust parents. You might yearn for your own horse—or your own hamster.

• … how you spend your money. Some purchases are more likely to contribute to your happiness than others. You might buy Champagne, or you might buy a dog. You might splurge on a big-screen TV, or you might splurge on a new bike.

• … how much money you have relative to the people around you, and relative to your own experience. Are you richer or poorer than most of your friends and family? Do you have more or less than in the past? The absolute level of wealth matters to happiness, but relative ranking matters, too.

  I think having enough money to not be worried about making ends meet is a big key to happiness. I know that for myself that I find I am happier when I do not worry about paying rent or how I am what I am going to eat for the week. I had more money and at a certian point it didn't change how happy I was.

    I'm not sure how much I trust the measurement since happiness is always subjective and cost of living varies greatly throughout the country, but they pegged the magic number at $70,000 per year per household. Households making less than that seemed generally less happy than those making that much or more. The kicker is that more money beyond the $70,000 per year did not equal more happiness.

    When I stopped eating ice cream, it was quite a surprise to discover that ice cream will go bad. For years I'd bought the flavors that I liked, ultimately discovering that no one else cared for them. (I never met a flavor I wouldn't eat.)

    Cute-but being originally from Florida and used to having those critters come up into our ponds and yards I would venture to say they would most likely like Human or dog flavored ice cream. They went for whatever animal was the closest to them. emoticon emoticon emoticon
