If something is not useful to a person they shouldn’t waste it off, it would be rather generous of them to donate to some needy people without bothering about their profit.
With so many people in need of bare necessities during recession.. It is hard to see biggies like H&M's and Wal-Mart destroying unsold clothes for their profits.. There are so many NGO’s who need help from big organizations who can shell out to help the poor and needy people. This news appeared in almost all the newspapers.
The Haiti Earthquake is the worst way to begin a new year for anyone. In times of calamity, financial downturn and economical fall it is necessary for everyone to be responsible and not waste resources.
In another shocking news the famous book outlet BORDERS has been planning to tear off unsold books so that they won’t be resold again because Waldenbooks will be closing down. It seems it is a practice in the industry to destroy unsold items rather than donating it. So their employees who protested against this have started a facebook group called Tell BORDERS: DO NOT DUMPSTER BOOKS when Waldenbooks closes - DONATE!
Books are not clothes to be dumped and torn like what Wal-Mart did.. Why insult knowledge rather than spread and donate it. BORDERS can donate it to people or sell it at a sale price, but why destroy.
Finally, the news say that BORDERS had to agree to the public pressure they received to donate the books. They have now partnered with Gifts In Kind International to donate the books. Gifts In Kind International has many networks for charity.
But the saddest part is when Waldenbooks closes down several of their employees would lose their jobs.

Time out!!! Take a break to rack your brains and solve this puzzle.
This game reminds me of the old story - Two silly goats trying to cross a narrow bridge.
Click on the Title link (The Bridge Game) to solve this puzzle and read the rules to it below. ::
Rules for this game:
It is night, So you must have a fire lamp.
Each person crosses the bridge at a different speed with their sweet own time.
[1-sec] [3-sec] [6-sec] [8-sec] [12-sec]
Only 1 or 2 person can pass the bridge at a time and not three together.
A pair must walk together at the rate of the slower person.
The FIRE LAMP is enough for 30-sec only!!!!
So have fun and solve this puzzle.
There is a difference when you say that you purchased a thing and a difference when you say you made the thing by yourself.
Being busy all the time with work hardly leaves us with time to pursue a hobby or a craft but each time while browsing the internet and watching people make creative things while crafting simply makes us say…wow.. it’s too simple to make things like:
• Key chains

I would like to welcome you all to this new blog…
To begin with……Since it is the New Year 2010… I thought of starting my own blog when I posted this blog on another forum. The idea dawned on me why not have my own blog :)
What’s on your mind this year? A new year to start with and no more New Year resolutions.. Resolutions are but obvious to be broken at some point during the year. Before the New Year began… I thought to myself last December.. Should I have a new year’s resolution? Have a good diet plan.. Do more exercises, workouts.. Maintain a good budget planner for this Recession..? It is good to have a disciplined life, but then I know at some point during the year I will splurge on something expensive, or eat a lavish meal or skip my exercises. Naaa!!!! Not at all…So I decided to just be myself this year again. Take each day as it comes. Face new challenges in life.. Who knows what lies in store for us each month and day in a year. On the first day of the year people usually tend to read horoscopes and yearly predictions. The New Year has just begun and days are already passing so fast that now January will soon be over. Valentine’s Day will come soon next month.. Soon all will be seeing cards, gifts, eateries all over the place in the market all friends from college and school are now settled in far and distant countries.. It’s hard to have get-together like the old days. Every-thing is now virtual and online. That’s the only option left to keep in touch with all. So finally let’s take each day as it comes and live life for the present.
There are three categories of people in terms of the past present future:
• People at times tend to worry a lot about the future forgetting that they need to live for the present.
• People who live for the present and forget completely about the future
• People who usually think only about the past and forget about their present and future. In my opinion there should be a balance of the three categories.
People should not forget about the present and live for the moment cause the present tense means a ‘gift by God’ in other words so live for the present moment People should also not forget about the future cause what actions you do in your present will definitely affect your future. People need not ponder over the past life experiences, but yes we can learn from our past experiences be it good or bad and take the necessary precautions in life to make a better present and future. May God bless all the people and Wish you all a prosperous new year 2010 ahead!!
