    Earn More, Being Idle..!

    "Eat!" I shout at my German -Shepherd, "Come on eat I'm getting late!"And my dog stares with stubborn look on canine face, which makes me even more furious. I take him by his collar and drag him to its plate, "Finish your food, you silly dog!"It just doesn't work. That's when I found a method, far better; that when I remain calm, totally unaffected before his meal, unruffled...

    Trust the Pilot..!

    I sat in my seat next to the window, in the airbus the other day, and heard the voice of the pilot over the PA system, "Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "We will be hitting turbulence for a while, but trust me, I will take you up, just above the clouds!"I looked out of my window, and all I saw was a huge expanse of grey.
