What's Going On

*  I was informed by a friend and subscriber that I haven't sent out an updated edition of this newsletter in A LONG TIME. So Here it is folks. Hope you enjoy it.

Cangrands' Conference

*  This July I spoke at the annual Cangrands Conference in Jackson's Point ON Canada. As always I had a great time and met many fun-loving, admirable people.

For those who have never heard of Cangrands, it is an organization of grandparents who have taken on the responsibility of parenting their own grandchildren due to  the problems and addictions of their children who are the parents of the children being cared for.

At a time in their life when they should be enjoying the fruits of their labours these people are now parenting their own grandchildren.  And many of these children have huge health and emotional problems often caused by the drug habits of their parents during pregnancy.

Fishing Trip

* I just returned from a fishing trip in Northern ON Canada with my 3 sons and all our cousins. The fishing was fantastic and the renewed  connection with family was such fun.  Evenings sitting around the campfire in the afterglow of  sunsets  to die for will live in our memories forever. Thanks Kyle

The Ottawa Valley

Carol and I recently spent a few days on the farm near Beachburg in the Ottawa Valley and once again had  a ball!   Not only are the people of the Valley friendly, but they really know how to have fun and music is such a rich part of their heritage.

We sat on the front deck overlooking the corn fields with the blue Laurentian Mountains in the distance and played our guitars and sang our hearts out. We hated to leave. Thanks so much to Jo, Mac, Genny, Krysten and Travis for joining in the fun.

22 Ways to Improve Your People Skills By Mike Moore

1. Develop an interest in people and become other oriented.

2. Know what people need and then try to meet those needs.

3. Ask about their family and be genuinely interested in their answer.

4. Find people doing something right and praise them generously.

5. Believe in the collective wisdom of the group.

6. Talk in terms of a person's main interest....THEMSELVES.

7. Always look directly at the person you are speaking to.

8. Laugh at yourself. When you do you give people permission to laugh at themselves.

9. Start believing that people are your most valuable resource.

10. Always give credit, don't take credit.

11. Care about the health and well being of people.

12. When you must correct another person always do so gently and in private.

13. Always give another person the benefit of the doubt.

14. Never treat people like numbers or things.

15. Learn and use their first names.

16. Never give the impression that you are too busy or rushed to care.

17. Never use sarcasm in conversation. It's a low form of humor and can be hurtful.

18. Never try to make yourself look good by making someone else look bad.

19. Share cute, funny, clean stories with those you work with and invite them to do likewise.

20. Laugh and play together as a group. There is a bonding power in laughter and play.

21.When you do or say something hurtful always be big enough to apologize. " I'm sorry " is one of the most powerful phrases in any language

22. Smile. There is power in a smile and life is just too short not to.
