Oct 10th 2010 8:51PM This article is right. Sometimes "I" start an small argument so I don't have to have sex with my wife because sometimes I cant keep up with her! I am 60, she is 59. And I go to the GYM! 4 times per week. Albeit both of us are a litle over weight, the sex is better since kids have left home, we can yell all we want.

Jul 2nd 2010 5:10PM You hit the nail on the head! I worked as a middle level Executive employee for many years in a Fortune 100 company. The best move I made was Independent Contracting - No POLITICS, No Escalations,no calls to your Boss. The absolute best now is I report directly to the CEO. Man how sweet it is. All I have to say now when I hit road blocks (sometimes purposely put up) is "so and so is not being a Team Player and has expressed difficulty understanding the Project mission or accepting Workplace Change. The Managers on this Blog know what I am talking about. Those words are a career death sentence.
Jul 2nd 2010 5:01PM Good statement. I have more advanced educational degrees than my current and previous manager(both high school graduates . who "worked their way up in company"). They always try, and have succeeded sometimes, to "catch me" in silly oversights on my part(i.e. company guidelines even the CEO does not remember, my not knowing who to call to fix copy machine, broken lights, computers/printers ....etc). I can easily get an outside person to fix these however there may be maintenance service agreements around somewhere but do they know? NOOOOOOOO.
Jul 2nd 2010 4:45PM Thank You Ray, My team works harder and longer when our Boss is not there(i.e especially when he is on vacation or takes the day or afternoon off). No one there to bug us and waste our productive time asking "how's it going" or for a project status every other hour or so for a project due 3 months in future. If they took the time to schedule weekly/biweekly status calls (even if we join, say "no issues" and hang up) that would be good. He thinks THAT wastes time! Go Figure
Apr 13th 2010 1:14PM Rick I was diagnosed with Type-II Diabetes (A1C was a little high) about 2 years ago and when I started exercise (walking 2 miles a day: 1 mile from my train stop to work and back) and I joined a gym, 3 times per week, after about 6 months my Dr took me off diabetic medicines. So it works , I really did not concentrate on diets, but did cut out sodas(main culprit) drank more ice water, cut down - not out - carbs, refined foods.
Mar 18th 2010 11:11AM Women want ONE man to satisfy ALL of their needs. Men want ALL women to satisfy ONE of his needs. To the women who state"my boyfriend would NEVER cheat on me..." . A few tests: 1) when he goes on a business trip, tell him you will take a few vacation days and meet him at the hotel, better yet DON"T tell him and still check into the hotel 2) when he states he is hanging out with the boys at a bar/club after work , say you will meet him there. In either of these examples, if he answers "great, ok," he is probably not cheating, if he frowns and says you won't know anybody there or why do you want to be alone in hotel while he is at meeting....he is cheating. Don't believe if he starts wearing nice clothes or starts working out, he is cheating, he has to do that to be competitive in today's working environment. Lastly, if you notice , on Sex And The City , Carrie married Mr. Big. and she knew he was cheating and married, It is all about the Money $$$$$ signed: A former "Player"
