Gone Fishing



When I was in business, my real estate office was across the street from the local breakfast/lunch restaurant, which I frequented daily. It was a great source of local gossip and news, which often turned into house listings and sales.

The owner, also a "townie" and friends of both my husband and myself, started his day real early "in the wee hours" around 3AM, to bake breads, muffins and rolls. His job was hot and sweaty, standing in front of a grill all day with waitresses barking orders endlessly.

My office became a refuge for him when he needed a well deserved few minutes of break time, just like his restaurant became my salvation when I needed to "hide" from my office duties, as well as keep up on who might be selling soon.

One day I was so stressed out that a little break across the street just wasn't going to be enough. I felt I had to get completely away from the stress and the only way to do it was by leaving town.

It didn't take much to convince hubby to close the doors and sneak away for a few hours.

It was not quite time for the restaurant to be closing, but as we were leaving I noticed that it looked like there was a lull at the restaurant. So I scooted across the street and talked our friend and his wife into closing shop early and hanging a "Gone Fishing" sign on the door.

Then we head up the coast to our favorite spot for some world famous Maine lobsters and clams. AAHHH!! The good ol' days.

The "Gone Fishing" trick was our little secret escape which turned into a habit that we used every now and then. It was a little mischievous way to have a fun break in our rather hectic schedules. And nobody was ever the wiser.

Dear GG,

I guess the wisdom came from knowing when a break was needed--to have some time together, enjoying some of those beautiful things life has to offer. Not everyone has the mental and emotional coolness/matureness to recognize how important this is. And now, you have all those memories of wonderful times with you (and I bet you keep creating even more alike).

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Hi

I am new to this site. Loads of individuals have contributed so many good things here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 lbs in a week, you are probably not seeing for a regular dieting and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a general diet and work out plan, However this requires a lot of time doing utmost cardio workouts and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

1. Keep Distance from all fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast every day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Eat Up reasonable portions (stop eating when you are full)
4. Rather than taking 3 huge a meals a day, take 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod your habbit of eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Get plenty of sleep every night. Not having plenty sleep has been verified to be a ranking factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Utilise a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of unnecessary fat stored just about the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those mens/womens who wish to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an superior method of burning weight quickly.

Thanks![url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com].[/url]!
