I for one hate lose ends... Drives me crazy. Great article!
Author: Toni Bowers TechRepublic.com
Having an employee who can complete a task and tie up loose ends is a godsend to bosses. Are you that type of person?
There are two types of people in this world: Those who close drawers after they get something out and those who don’t. My husband is the latter. That man cannot close a cabinet door to save his… Continue

I had this idea that I was going to rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it.
