Tipping

A very brief post.

Recently I was asked to pay an up front gratuities payment.

Tipping is not as big in Australia as in other parts of the world, I believe.

However, this is the first time I have ever been

asked to pay up front.

Is this a common practice in other countries?

Your thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

Thank you

We are normal, everyday hard-working people with a common hobby, blogging. We hail from far and wide. We reside in different lands, on different continents. We speak different languages, eat different foods, and are of varying ages, professions, and religious and cultural backgrounds.

We do have one thing in common…

We believe that terrorist attacks, wherever they may be perpetrated; whether in France, Tunisia, Canada, Iraq, or in Denmark, Turkey, UK, Algeria, Yemen, USA, Lebanon, or in the skies over Egypt, or in India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Kuwait, Libya, Bangladesh, Syria, or Mali are nothing less…

A HUG – The perfect Gift

I love these sentiments….and all so true

Ute smile

Have you had a hug today?

I came across 10 reasons to give more hugs –  I don’t need any reason to hug but this is “scientific”……

1. Hugging induces oxytocin in the body.

2. Hugging builds stronger bonds with people you see every day.

3. Hugging lowers stress.

4. Hugging lowers blood pressure.

5. Hugging is a reciprocal good deed.

6. Hugging feels incredible.

7. Hugging can turn a bad mood upside down.

8. Hugging reconnects the mind with the body.

9. Hugging more makes us better huggers.

10. Hugging cultivates patience.

How many hugs do we need?

4 hugs a day for survival

8 hugs a day for maintenance

12 hugs a day for growth

I am going to have some hugs now………

Wishing you all a wonderful day with lots of hugs and love!

Big cyber hug for you all!

1,000 Views/Hits

I know many blogs have far more hits per week/day the WoollyMuses receives. However, this evening, June 4th, a visitor from California has ticked the WordPress counter over to 1,000 hits.

My first post was uploaded on April 3rd and since then there has been far more visitors than I ever anticipated.

A big thank you to all those who have stopped by, read, liked and commented on WoollyMuses posts.

You have all made my return to Internet publishing, after an absence of seven or eight years, much more fun and easier than I anticipated.
