"This Houston conference is a production of CEO Netweavers, the Greenleaf Center, and the International Society for Performance Improvement.
It’s purpose is to shine the light on Servant Leadership in Action, especially the powerful and unmistakable connection between true servant leadership in action and long-term outperformance, shareholder return on investment, and human fulfillment.
Along with a transformational conference experience, CEO Netweavers Houston will inaugurate the Servant Leadership in Action Award, to be awarded to a local business or community servant leader.

Fwd: Visit from the Senator -- Just another Bill Clinton

First of all, I'd like to thank each and every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine for their service to our country.

Having said that, this is proof from the field that in the legacy of "Uncle Bill", Obama is a big fat liar.

Pass it on.

Eric Standlee

---------- Forwarded message ----------
 Hello everyone,
                   As you know I am not a very political person. I just
wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for
about an hour on his visit to "The War Zone". I wanted to share with you
what happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle,
got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the
commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers where lined up to shake his
hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the
conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took
him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel
can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his
publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity
to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service. So really he was
just here to make a showing for the American's back home that he is
their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an
effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are
providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got
more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy
Cheerleaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the
President of the United States. I just don't understand how anyone would
want him to be our Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared
to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great
                 If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I
wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What
you see in the news is all fake.

In service,
CPT Jeffrey S. Porter

Strokes and the detection thereof, while not on topic to this blog, please share this with everyone you know.  I especially want my friends to know for selfish reasons:

Remember The 1st Three Letters.... S.T.R. 

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. 

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously.. 

Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall,
she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .....she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. 

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. 

Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. 
Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die, they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. 

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim
within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke... totally . He said the trick was getting a stroke 
recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 

Thank God for the sense to remember the 

'3' steps, STR . Read and Learn! 

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. 
Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when 
people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke 

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: 

S Ask the individual to SMILE. 
T Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) i.e. It is sunny out today) 
* Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS . 

If he or she has trouble with
 ANY ONE of these tasks, call 119 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. 

New Sign of a Stroke ------- Stick out Your Tongue 

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.. 

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to
 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

Venture capitalists say startup community is in crisis - San Francisco Business Times:

Venture Capitalists should turn to alternative funding partnerships with companies like American Prudential Capital (not venture capital) to "greenhouse" deals just not ready for venture money to accelerate the ability of potential venture deals to come to table.

Venture capitalists say startup community is in crisis - San Francisco Business Times:: "The venture capital trade group also pointed to a recent industry survey in which two-thirds of VCs surveyed said their portfolio companies are less likely to want to enter the public markets today than they were three years ago."

It is going to be harder with high costs of doing business for start-ups to get to the venture capital table, and VCs should be looking for strong growing companies. That is why VCs should join forces with a company like American Prudential Capital to help their potential deals grow until they can bring them to the table instead of just throwing them in the trash.

End High Oil Prices: Idea

Let's stop being whimpering ninnies waiting for the government to do something.

Let's face it if we had more domestic oil production we'd be insulated from these middle-east maniacs and their money grabbing.

So, here's the idea: If you have land drill for oil.  Take it into your own hands.

What do you think?  Comment profusely.
