Personally: Sleeping in a lot longer..

Tipping a lot more- l respect people who give great service; whether its a restaurant or reputable establishment.

 * Getting rid of the gardener- the only reason his still around is because he was recommended by a family friend, on a number of occasions he has butchered the front lawn. This guy has the mental attitude of those folk who are decimating the Rain Forests in South America...  you out of here Pedro !!!

* Have a Great Weekend People...

    Sleeping in? There's plenty of time to sleep when you're dead or near death. Don't be a sloth.

    Tipping? People shouldn't need to win a JP before they tip their servers well. I tip well now.

    Gardener? That all depends on if you have a mansion or a condo. You might get a landscaper or groundskeeper if you have a mansion. As for gardener? Eh, I'd rather get my produce from a farmer's market or grocery store. It's quicker and easier.

          gardener ?? I rather do it my self and I don't need a super sized lawn

          personally depending on size property I'd hardscape half of it

           

          as for tipping for services I agree U tip for good services and U leave the rotten servers to fend for selves

                      I will never buy a used car ever again. They will all be brand new unless it's a limited edition or something in the like of a different era that i maybe interested in. Nlow that doesnt mean Im buying lambos or Rolls Royces, but just normal cars like a Hyundai Sonata actually. I think that is the best car on the road today, gas mileage, warranty, acceleration etc, etc. Yep I win a jackpot no more used cars for me

                              People, especially Dealerships try not to use the word "used car" much these days SM- its now " Pre-Owned" have no idea whether the subtle use of the word changes the definition or not.. 

                              On a side note....

                              * A friend of mine got remarried for the 2nd time a few months ago and prior to meeting his future wife he said " Its the 2nd time around for both of us- we both Pre- Owned but slightly used"....Big Smile
