Our politicians need to stop making scape goats and heroes and concentrate on facts. The first fact is, Mr. President, I did build that business by my own ingenuity and hard work. However, Mr. Romney, I needed to count on the government to provide security, infrastructure and the rule of law to be successful. When I opened my first business more than 40 years ago, I never worried what I would pay in taxes if successful, I only worried about success. The tax rate never stopped me from going into business. Going into business is what I do just like an actor acts and a clergyman prays. What I so need of my government is consistency in laws, and tax rates and regulation. For my planning purposes I want to know what i can expect, today, tomorrow and next year.
Shopping Malls almost Always have some kind of shopping spree going on. Easiest way is to phone the mall (look up in your phonebook), and ask them if they have any special promotions going on this month. On top of that — quite frequently there will be vendors within the mall (ESPECIALLY Christmas time!) offering some kind of sweepstakes. (I.e., win a car, win a gift bag, etc, etc!) So definitely worth checking out!

Question Ideas: Before the trip, have each child make up Q&A cards for themselves on index cards. The subject can be whatever subject they are trying to learn. Parents can make cards for little children. These cards are used in the paper games. Or while on the trip, hand out index cards and have the children write on their card, using their own names: ‘Joe’s favorite food’, ‘Joe’s favorite color’, ‘Sue’s best talent’, ‘Mom’s best dessert’, and so on. Everyone then has to write their answer on the back of each question card. Use these cards in the board games as a form of Get to Know You. Parents can even make up cards in the hotel at night about the places the family visited that day and what they learned.
We also bought our gas and had our cars serviced by J.B. Webb at the Esso station. J.B. was our neighbor, and took excellent care of our vehicles. We trusted him. In today’s world where so much of everything is virtual, visit a local, small business retailer this weekend and enjoy the real-time, personal service.

How did you get into the coffee shop business? I wanted to have a coffee shop for a long time. I like interacting with people and drinking coffee. Back home in Ethiopia, it is common for people to socialize and drink coffee.
