Lemon Squeezer

In Ottawa, a local bar was so sure its bartender was the strongest man
around that it offered a standing $1000 bet. The bartender would
squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass and hand the
lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice
out would win the money.

Many people had tried over time (lumberjacks, truck drivers, miners
etc.) but nobody could do it. Then one day this scrawny little man
came into the bar, wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit, and
said in a tiny squeaky voice, "I'd like to try the bet."

After the laughter had died down, the bartender said okay, grabbed a
lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the
rind to the little man. But the crowd's laughter turned to total
silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and six drops
fell into the glass.

As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1000.00 and asked the
little man, "What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a
weight-lifter, or what?"

"Nope" , the man replied, "I work for Revenue Canada."

Did you know that having a home-based business can allow you
increased tax deductions and lower your total tax payable?

Ten Principles to Help Weather the Recession

Meir Cohen, Vice President of Bull Wealth Management Group in Toronto Canada, has shared a letter he sent to his clients. There is plenty of intelligent and prudent investment advice for anyone with holdings in the equities markets. I beg you to please pay special heed to point #10.

Visit this link if you can't see the embedded material.

One of the best ways to deal with the recession is to maintain your personal or family cashflow. As long as your own economy is healthy you will not have to worry about the global economy. I have some ongoing projects for people interested in increasing their "non-job" cashflow. These are not investments, but are a way to generate extra streams of income.
