Story of the Month: 

I was at a job interview this month. To test my selling skills, the manager handed me a laptop and said: I want you to try to sell this back to me."

So I put it under my arm, left the building and went home.

Shortly afterwards, he called and demanded: "Bring my laptop back."

I said: $200 and it's yours!"

Invention of the Month:


Joke of the Month:

Three guys, stranded on a desert island, find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants each of them one wish.

The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home.

The second guy wishes the same thing.

The third guy says, "I'm lonely. I wish my friends were back here."

Book of the Month:
Last month I posted information about my book, YOU CAN'T RUIN MY DAY. I like to change what I write about each month in this section but having received a glowing unsolicited email just a few days ago from a reader, about YOU CAN'T RUIN MY DAY, I had to share it. The slightly edited email, is below.

Subject: LOVE your book!

Dear Allen,

You Can’t Ruin My Day is one of my favorite books of all time – and I read a lot! (My master’s degree is in reading.) I first borrowed a copy from the library, but like it so much I bought my own copy to keep, highlight, mark, and reread.

You wrote like a genius. I can’t imagine all the time, research, effort, and love you put into that book, but I sure do know how much I appreciate it!

I already ordered a copy for a good friend – she deserves your wisdom. But then, so do many of my friends.

Your writing is remarkable:
• The chapter title tells us what to do
• You have a celebrity quote about the subject
• You stories illustrate your point so beautifully
• Your follow up reenforces your point
• You find a Lighten Up joke that illustrates your point.
• You include so many resources that fit in with your points
• Your personal stories are especially appealing
• You have stories about others that illustrate as well
• 52 main ideas, and each fully contained so the reader can easily read one in a short 5 – 6 minute time
• I could hardly put your book down!
NOW do you see why I believe your writin
g is remarkable, and you are a genius??

You are amazing, Allen.

Thank you so MUCH for your beautiful gift to the world – your caring to share what you have learned, and the huge effort you put into it to make the world a better place. It works!

Much appreciation and gratitude to you,

Liz Northrop
