    To extend a conversation from your blog:

    Problem – too many comments to reply to them all
    Opportunity – to connect with that many more readers

    And again Ned, they don’t see it, but that’s all the better for us mate. We have all of next year and beyond to capitalize on it.

    This is one of the best quotes I have ever heard! I love it! So I just re-tweeted it for you. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some nice comments. Great achievement on your PR4 – and you seem to be getting a lot of traffic, too! That’s the most important thing.

    Keeping more in touch, not just on my blog, will be a focus for me next year. And thank you for your participation here on my blog.

    Thanks for the visit and the retweet Petra!

    I really don’t get that much traffic. (I just checked your Alexa stats and you beat me by a factor of 10!) I am a little stumped by it. It would appear that I am not getting much repeat traffic so every month is a new battle. Maybe your tweet will make the difference 🙂

    Great Quote! I think its true if we can learn from out mistakes or difficulties can achieve more. I work in a manufacturing environment, my real job, and there are always things that happen. What we look at are the root causes of these things that happen and correct them so they don’t happen again. There are always opportunities for improvement and we need to learn from out mistakes and difficulties to be successful.

    Side note: My father grew up in the Baltimore area. We used to travel to Baltimore quite often when I was a kid to visit my grandmother and my aunt and uncle. I have fond memories of the Inner Harbor and Ocean City and plan to bring my kids there one day!

    This is an excellent quote. I knew the quote, but I did not know that it was Truman who said it.
