Cartoon by Dave Walker. Find more cartoons you can freely re-use on your blog at We Blog Cartoons.



Mel from Monday Morning Power has launched 2 new sites that are "link-love" based, but emphasize quality over quantity.

Mel believes that to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:
Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)


Mel believes that everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to participate in what could eventually be bigger than the Big Bang, please follow the appropriate link:

"Are You Grateful?"

"Complain Complain Complain."

You you can submit multiple entries. Those who have not participated, please consider doing so. Tagging is completely optional.
