UFO's In Art

Move it Monday: Life is Tough

The reason self help books don’t work for everyone is that life is unpredictable and no matter how much you want to prepare, you will fall and scrape your knee or bump your head but being assertive and being prepared can help those curve balls that Ms. Destiny likes to throw at you.  For that reason, the quote of the week is simply, “When life is tough, get a helmet.” Read more
