Ah, this was quite a surprise when I came home today. My wife baked a dozen chocolate cupcakes! So, fresh out of the oven one was offered to me and how could I resist. It was all so fluffy and just perfect! Ha (!) I hope she’s reading my blog, I could use a warm back rub tonight.
Anyway, let me pull out of that wonderful scene to say “don’t you think the world needs a cupcake”? I think it’s high time for a “world smile”. Across the globe, recession has been biting bitterly to people of all classes. Even the rich aren’t immune to it! Case in point several hundreds of higher level management folks in danger of losing their jobs.
In Canada, some companies are cutting back on employee benefits to avoid the mass lay-offs. I was just speaking with a friend yesterday and she said the that their employee union agreed to cutting back on benefits only to safeguard their jobs.
Tough, tough world we live in… we all need a cupcake!
