Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you had an absolutely fabulous on this oh so good Wednesday. Today is the 18th of June 2008 and that of course means that it is the mid week Wednesday edition of the Morning Cruise…so Wednesday is here so it is a short week of only 4 working days wow no complaints from me… so last week I said that I just so love Wednesday because you know that you are half way through the week… and I still agree it is so so good to know that we are half way through which is terrific…

Tip of the Day:

I spoke about having good neighbours so whether you live in a high-rise apartment building or a townhouse complex, so having neighbours are a part of life no matter where you stay. Here are four tips to being a better next-door neighbour…

1. Keep the noise down, especially at night - Day to day noises, such as running water, the clatter of feet, or conversations, are to be expected. And some noise, like hammering, clearly is unavoidable. But blasting music of any genre at the highest volume interrupts the peace of your next-door neighbors. Making loud disturbances in the middle of the night is inconsiderate. So, before making a noise, think of your neighbors and judge whether it’s the appropriate time.

2. Watch your neighbor's back - If you see suspicious activity around your neighbor’s door, alert the appropriate authorities. Keep your eyes and ears open. Think of it as the golden rule: you’d want your neighbors watching out for your place.

3. Keep the common areas clean - This is another code of conduct from the golden rule camp. Litter is unsightly. Just as you wouldn’t want to pick up after others or see trash everywhere, don’t leave newspapers, junk mail, or litter for others to endure. It’s courteous to your neighbors and to your super to clean up after yourself.

4. Be friendly with your neighbours - As soon as you move in, begin developing relations with your neighbors. Greet them when you see them in the lobby. If you have time, ask how their day was. If you haven’t started this, it’s never too late. You don’t have to knock on their door, but if you see them, give them a friendly greeting. Not only will you feel a stronger tie to this mini-community, but you may have a friend who can help you out in a jam—such as pet-sitting or lending you their vacuum.

5. Come Together - Plan to party. The Flamingo Park neighborhood in West Palm Beach, Florida, takes advantage of year-round sunshine by having quarterly block parties -- complete with band, tent in the street and a row of grills for barbecuing. For more frequent socializing, residents take turns hosting monthly happy-hour gatherings.

Quote of the Day:

Henry David Thoreau – Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined

It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Wednesday. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
