Ripples v9.36: Hard Work!

Ripples v9.36: Hard Work!
9/3/07: a free weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project


Just because you work hard doesn’t mean you’re going to win.
But if you stop working hard, you don’t have a shot of winning.
-Jim “Jimmy V” Valvano, submitted by Dave B., La Crosse,WI


I know the price of success:
hard work
and an unremitting devotion
to the things you want to see happen.

Welcome to a few hundred new HARD WORKING Ripplers from University of Hartford and University of Wisconsin – River Falls. WOOHOO!

Monday is Labor Day here in the U.S., a holiday originally created in 1882 “to exhibit to the public ‘the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations’ of the community” (source: ). Now it serves as a last hurrah of summer vacation before we all jump into the fall “work” season whether that is school-work or work-work. So take a moment today to appreciate all the HARD WORK you have completed recently!

Ooh, and get ready because next Monday, September 10, is FREE HUGS Day and hopefully many of us will participate! Read more about it here: If you’re on Facebook, join this group:
