Basket of goodies!

CCIA

This is the little basket of goodies in the office at work. Everyone love the goodies in this basket… especially when it’s been a long day and you just need some sugar or chips to get you through the arvo! Sue, our accounts lady runs this basket of goodies. Ironically, she’s also the fruit lady, trying to keep us all healthy by putting out fresh fruit every day (maybe to offset the goodies!).

Overload!

Most have probably experienced ‘information overload’… But have you ever experienced ‘generosity overload’?

OverloadI don’t know about you, but I get bombarded by people or organisations asking for my money…asking me to donate, to give, to partner… to be generous!

Check out the iPad 2 – www.apple.com/au/ipad (caution you’ll be tempted to buy one!)
