Dilemmas

Today's song is Taken In by Mike + The Mechanics, released in 1986.

The Creative Commons License allows me to use the Spider-Man 3 header shown at the top of this initial home page. I found that graphic at the official Sony site as part of their free blogger templates download offerings.

Sherry and I went to see Spider-Man 3 last night. We both enjoyed the movie very much. I thought the story was very well done, showing how a person can be faced with dilemmas, yet persevere.

Stress will often cause dilemmas and/or problems where none existed previously. Sometimes people handle the stress better than others. Sometimes new ways of coping with the tension take hold.

Nothing is guaranteed in life. Guarantees create stress for someone, somehow, somewhere. It's better if you don't offer guarantees and don't expect them in return. Oscar Wilde said it this way, "To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect."

My friend, Karen, sent me a link concerning general tornado information, including a set of pictures of the Greensburg, KS devastation.

Even seeing those images it's hard to grasp the destructive power of a powerful funnel almost two miles wide. Your donation now to the American Red Cross will help. Thank you.

In The Moment is my latest short story. The short story category continues to gain in popularity and exposure here and on the other sites where I publish them.

Lady Troubles is a very creative YouTube video. The author of that video has a niche market at his fingertips.

Choose a Vista is a really cool new Apple Get A Mac TV Ad. So many former Windows users are finding out that the Mac computer experience is so much better. :-)

I read that IT Managers Face Crunch In Filling Open Positions. I take it as a good sign that when there is a low limit for H1-B Visa's, American citizen IT workers get a better deal.

As a follower of Space news, I found this Supernova SN 2006gy article to be informative.

Sun Microsystems continues to help developers create content more easily than using other development environments. JavaFX is a cool addition to any developer's toolbox, imho. :-)

Today's message completes with the following Digital Insight.

Taken In (Created in March 2004)

Have you ever been made to be somebody's fool? Did you learn from the experience or just become bitter over it?

It is my view that people do things to other people for many reasons and the outcome is not always the expected one. One negative attribution could be the result of someone's deceit and misuse of your trust. If you want to be positive about that result, if it's happened to you, then accept the outcome and become wiser and loving in response. I think you'll find that reaction to be beneficial because without a "chip on your shoulder", you're more appealing to someone who will take you into their heart and provide you true love.

When that happens to you, you'll see the light of life much more fully and arrive at a new understanding of who you are. This image is also available for sale. Using my own words, I quote a portion from that page's narration:

"There are times in our lives when we can be used or sometimes even abused. Often the impact is not intentionally meant. On the other hand, there are times when the unfair advantage is intended. That's why the School of Hard Knocks has one of the largest alumni all over the world -- and growing every day.

Of course, we can all be rescued. In that way we are 'taken in' through a loving, and beneficial way. I prefer the latter encounter, using the lessons of the past to help those people who are exposed to the former at vulnerable times in their lives."
