This is something to think about when negative people are doing their

> You're crazy to go to Rome.
> So, how are you getting there?"
> We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a

> "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their

> So, where are you staying in Rome?" "We'll be at this

thinks it's gonna be something special and

> So, whatcha' doing when you get there?" "We're going to

> "That's rich," laughed the hairdresser, "You and a million

> Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going

> A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser

waited on me hand and foo t.
> And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling
and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the
> city. They, too,were overbooked, so they apologized and gave
> us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"
> Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know
didn't get to see the Pope."
> "Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican
> a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the
> Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind
> as to step into his private room and wait the Pope would
> personally greet me.
> Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and
shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."
> "Oh, really! What'd he say?"
> He said, "Where'd you get the crappy haircut?
