KNOW YOUR ENEMY - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Apr 15, 2013

Hi EXers! This morning finds Colorado in a blizzard! *sigh* In case you've been wondering, my Aunt is out of Rehab and I've been caring for her when not working so my online time is highly hadicapped. But I think of all of you whether a Dear Old EX-Family member or a New EX Friend! Auntie is doing very well, BTW! At times I wonder if this series benefits anyone and then as I collect great articles like these - I KNOW! Knowledge is Power and folks who read these articles are bound to fortify their determination and protect their quits! So grab your favorite beverage, get comfortable, and know your enemy!
