“To be opposed is not to be vanquished, though a timid mind
is apt to mistake every scratch for a mortal wound.”
Lord Byron (George Noel Gordon) 1788 – 1824
Perhaps the best cure for the fear of death is to reflect that life has a beginning as well as an end. There was a time when you were not: that gives us no concern. Why then should it trouble us that a time will come when we shall cease to be? To die is only to be as we were before we were born. – William Hazlitt, essayist (1778-1830)
Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. Make sure your picture is full of happiness, and at the end of the day: You don’t look at it and wish you had painted something different.
This is CREEPY!!!!! I had a Palm Treo for two years then switched to a BlackBerry Curve which I had for three years and loved it made the Treo look like a Tinkertoy! The curve served me well! I tried the BB Storm for about two weeks an HATED it so I went back to the curve. I always liked Research In Motion (RIM) and always felt them the communication leader at one time.
I had heard a rumor back when the NYC World Trade centers went down that the BlackBerry was the only device that kept working. True or not I had a lot of respect for the company. Then Verizon got the iPhone and I bought it and I will NEVER own any other device!! They have got it down! Typing on it beats them all and I have tried them all (touch screens)
I am sad to see RIM going down but it seems a dog eat dog world out there in communication land! Google Android and Apple are going at it head to head and it’s insane!! If they could quit the squabbling and put their heads together and make one device it would be GREAT! But there is way to much money at stake for them to do that! Anyway RIM has released this video with the hopes to get people to “Love them” again!! Sorry guys I am hooked on iPhone and now iPad!!! But I wish you all the luck!!!!

One has a greater sense of intellectual degradation after an interview with a doctor than from any human experience. ~ Alice James
