Now a monkey coming along and spotting the bananas, will reach through the narrow rungs of the cage and grab a banana. But he can't get it out. And no matter how hard he tries – twisting his hand back and forth – he c...
Especially in the beginning it helps me a lot NOT to say to others i stopped smoking (ONLY close family members).
When a smoking friend asks me : Did you stop smoking ? I now answer .. No i had a smoke a couple of hours ago and am fine now.
The reason i say this it helps to escape the social pressure from smoking friends. In the past i saw that when i stopped all of them are always very i...

$9921. That is an amazing pay rise... Certainly more than any employer would like to offer. Better still, now that I can breathe without pain, maybe I will live linger to enjoy this windfall. Sounds better than a Lotto win...
