Some Statistics About Social Media

So, is Social Media a fad?  Or is it something that we need to take note of, need to learn how to use and need to embrace? Based on the book ‘Socialnomics’ by Erik Qualman, the following video contains some very useful information and statistics about Social Media and how it’s growing.  You may find that some of these statistics are, not only, surprising but absolutely astonishing. It’s worth noting that the statistics in the video are now a little ‘old’ and completely underestimate the true scale as reflected in the current figures.  Social Media is growing exponentially, right now, so get ...

The Cookie Thief ~ A lesson in Assumptions

A woman was waiting at an airport one night, With several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shop, Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, That the man beside her, as bold as could be, Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between, Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene. She munched cookies and watched the clock, As this gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, Thinking “If I wasn’t so nice I’d blacken his eye”. With each cookie ...

A Donkeys Tale – A Lesson in Persistence

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was ...

A Human Ventriloquist Dummy

I’m not one for spending hours and hours on YouTube watching all kinds of videos but every now and then you come across something that’s just so funny you have to tell everyone. Well, this one made me laugh so much I just had to  share it with anyone that would listen. Enjoy!………. And, of course, you should feel free to share it with anyone and everyone if you agree with me. I hope you found it as funny as I did. Kindest regards, Steve Bimpson

Learning To Listen

Author: Johnny Silvas We all know what it’s like to get that phone call in the middle of the night.  This night’s call was no different. Jerking up to the ringing summons, I focused on the red illuminated numbers of my clock.  Midnight.  Panicky thoughts filled my sleep-dazed mind as I grabbed the receiver.  “Hello?” My heart pounded; I gripped the phone tighter and eyed my husband, who was now turning to face my side of the bed. “Mama?” I could hardly hear the whisper over the static.  But my thoughts immediately went to my daughter.  When the desperate sound of a young crying voice ...

Rocks In A Jar

Sometimes it’s important for us to make sure that we have our priorities in order but, in the fast-paced, ever changing world that we live in, it’s not always easy to keep our eye on what our priorities really are.

Why We Want You To Be Rich

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both businessmen with incredible reputations and this book resonates with me in so many different ways. Firstly, one of my concerns in life (at the age of 49) is how I’m going to manage, financially, when the time comes that I choose to retire – and that’s probably something that you’re concerned about, as well. Now it’s not that I’m intending to retire, imminently, as I really enjoy what I do and, in some ways, I’m not sure that I’ll ever want to completely retire.  However, it’s clear to me that I can’t rely on the ...
