For Fun, I ask the question, “What happened to TV theme songs?” You barely if ever hear them anymore. And, what a shame that is because a good theme song often outlived the show. For this segment, I picked five theme songs off the top of my head. This list could have easily topped 25, because there were just so many and they were that good. I talk about these songs. You can go to YouTube to see the actual intros to the show.

Head on over to the Facebook page, and share your favorite theme song!

No is often hard to say. We don’t want to disappoint or let someone down. We also don’t want that nagging feeling of obligation. So, all too many times, we agree to things we don’t really want to do. The result is stress, overwhelm and overextension. Yet, you can say ‘No” with style, grace and not a lot of drama. You can Just say No or you can say No, but … or, finally, you can say No and give a reason. The No you use depends of the satiation and the relationship you have with the requestor. No can help you defend your time, set realistic boundaries and some times even save your sanity!
