  1. I came here through a Google search on Managing in Tough Times as I am preparing a seminar on the subject. I find your post about the skyscraper in Taipei fascinatiing. GREAT material! Thanks.

    The video on the internet is also great. My 102 year old grandmother just asked me last weekend what the internet is. My, how times have changed in her lifetime.

  2. Have you ever considered adding more videos to your blog posts to keep the readers more entertained? I mean I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since I’m more of a visual learner.

    • Thanks for your feedback… and thanks for reading through an entire article..! I will take you advice and add more visuals to my posts… in fact, I’m currently travelling overseas so I may do a photo essay in the near future.

  3. So . . . I found your blog because I Googled “Ricola” . . . then I got hooked on your other readings. I hate blogs, so really I hate when I get hooked on one. Hopefully, you don’t go into a depression and abandon us like the only other blogger I followed (seriously hope she’s okay). Plus I like the fact that you actually know the original meaning of meme. I’m not really a Dawkins’ fan, but I’ll acknowledge he was right about a couple of things.

    Anywho, you’ve got a lot for me to read through, so I better get crack’n (TX term).

    • Thanks Sam — You win for best general comment to date.
      Looking forward to seeing more of your comments laced with TX-speak.
      This here blogger won’t abandon you, and thanks you for your encouragement… am now fixin’ ta get another post out, soon.
