    I no longer have any excuses...for anything!

    Forgive me if this has already been posted before, but I saw this early this morning on Robin Wood's Blog and decided it worthy to share with all of you. I hope you also find it so.

    OK all my excuses just went out the window.

    Remarkable. I attended a seminar once that was given by a man, Canadian I think, who had no arms. He sat talking to us and quite comfortably lifted a cup of coffee with his foot and drank from it without bending his back, among other things. I don't know if he could hammer a nail, but it was an inspiring talk about overcoming shortcomings. We really don't have any excuses.
    Cheers,
