Ronnie, Managing Publisher 850-547-0102 Well, it is REALLY APRIL ~ April Fool’s day is / was April 1st. This slice of cheese is not about April Fool’s Day, but rather about a very serious book many of us will recall reading and rereading: Who Moved My Cheese? Yes, it happens to each of us, and sometimes more often than not. For instance; the economy has moved our cheese; the weather has moved our cheese; health has moved our cheese; and I could go on and on - but I’d quickly run out of paper and there, my cheese would be moved again! How does the WWDR Team overcome our cheese being moved? We adjust, keep smiling, and change things up a bit in our daily, weekly, monthly, yearly routines. And believe it or not, all of this makes for a better life and world for all of us here and probably would for you too. So, if you haven’t read the book, you are probably thinking “Ronnie has gone and done it ~ she’s gone bonkers!” Not really. Just go to the library (if that hasn’t been moved on you), or buy the book. Read it once, and I guarantee you, you will wind up reading it again and again because it does really make sense and helps us all adjust our lives with the cheese being moved. Hey. I almost forgot to tell you. Check out this month’s centerfold. Our Cheese Really Has Moved and Boy, Are We Smiling! We Will See you on the trail in Branson!
