Cabin Fever Forces Location Change

Cabin fever forced me out of my house to Mugg & Bean at the mall. I am rather disappointed that the South Africa restaurant sector has not caught onto the fact that their customers who come there for meetings and to work may need an electrical connection.

Bless Mugg & Bean, they have a dedicated area where customers can just plug in. But it was busy today, and other restaurants said they could not provide plug points. So I had to wait...

The morning was however, productive, and I managed to update the blogs and begin an article on the return of the craft era based on the Agile Forum I attended last week.

The article is mostly human resources related, not IT, but I think that's good because the trend is not restricted to the IT sector (nor was it first seen in the IT sector).

I also think that the trend is good news for professionals who want to do something really well, rather than being overwhelmed by management issues.

As my career as a writer developed, one of my biggest conccerns was that I didn't want to be promoted out of the tasks that I love, and that got me into this business in the first place. On the other hand, I wanted to be paid real well for my skill.

If you have a minute, check out the posts that were published today:

A Body Massage to Gain Height
Having a full body massage helps relieve stress and remove the hard and tough muscles in your body that seemed to have stiffened due to too much pressure. While being massaged, the body undergoes a certain relaxed state, helping a person loosen up his muscles and bones.
A full body massage helps increase height, whatever your age may be. Not only are tight muscles relieved during a session of massage, it also exercises the bones and stretches them. Have you ever noticed that whenever you are being massaged, some of your bones seem to pop and you are relieved and relaxed?
Some gaps between bones are not being filled up with the right amount of fluid that is should contain to work properly. This is caused by stress and an unhealthy diet. A small person that starts practicing a balanced diet, the right amount of sleep, exercise and regular massage therapies, he should expect to grow taller in a matter of weeks. For more information, go to http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
Massaging also helps improve posture, which is enough to increase an inch or two on top of your actual height. Many people have become used to standing in a humped style that they do not recognize the adverse effects of such. Height is not the only one directly affected by mal-posture. Several spinal column problems have aroused from employing the wrong posture. Such instances include scoliosis and lumbago.
Many experts actually recommend massaging so that the body will not be totally shocked with the growth enhancing methods that a person goes through to gain some height. One good growth enhancer is the Growth Flex V Pro System. Here you can visit, if you need to know in details, http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
