Meteoric climbs to the top often stop abruptly and throw you back to where you came fron.  Be prepared to meet the same people again and again and you will win...forget that wisdom and you will be lost more times than not.

Powerful people seldom worry about what you think, but to rise that high they had to figure out what you would do if you were in power, too.  To skip over the work of another in order to rise above him or her is obviously a way to insure you will fall one day and not be able to count on them helping you up again.

Scotland's 5,000 Year Old Temple in Orkney

2014 October 22

Long before the Egyptians began building pyramids, Neolithic European man built a vast temple complex at the very north of Scotland.  Neil Oliver investigates the recent discovery of a 5,000-year-old temple in Orkney. The vast site lay undisturbed until now. Built 500 years before Stonehenge, the temple has triggered new thoughts about the beliefs of Neolithic people, turning the map of ancient Britain upside down.  So far there have been incredible finds, including the first ever discovery of Neolithic painted wall decorations and even the pigments and paint pots used by Stone Age artists.

2014 October 21

We are re-viewing this inspirational speech by Dr. Randy Pausch given to his last class at Carnegie Mellon University in my hometown of Pittsburgh.  Here he is on the Oprah Winfrey Show.  His advice: "Don't complain, just work harder—you can choose to take your finite time and effort and spend it complaining,or you can spend it playing the game hard."
