Free CD stand/stacker
Does anyone want a CD stand/stacker? Michael was going to throw it away, but I will give it to anyone who wants it. I had it at the meeting and forgot about it. It is about 1 ft. square, 5 layers, and each level holds about 50 CD's. Perfect for someone with a growing collection, and maybe one of the kids would like it...Call Shirley

This seems to be how women handle self image as they age:
Age 8: Looks at herself and sees Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty etc.
Age 15: Looks at herself and sees Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty/Cheerleader or if she is PMS'ing sees Fat/Pimples/UGLY ("Mom I can't go to school looking like this!")
Age 20: Looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she's going anyway.
Age 30: Looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix it so she's going anyway.
Age 40: Looks at herself and sees "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but says, "At least, I'm clean" and goes anyway.
Age 50: Looks at herself and sees "I am" and goes where ever she wants to.
Age 60: Looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.
Age 70: Looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a red hat and goes out to participate in the world.
Age 90: Can't see and so doesn't worry about it!
