You will find links to movies and photos of my Grandkids. If you are here using a mobile phone then make sure you are either on free wifi or have a good data plan before you visit these pages.

I have a page also that will feature software that I recommend for safe computing, as well as a page showing how to get started with Bridge Base. It you are a bridge player then you will also like the link to Bridge Conventions.

What Makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%?

But what makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: dennis

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z are represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 2021 22 23 24 25 26.

Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K is 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E is 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T is 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G is 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

Now you know why some people are where they are!
