This is my view, from my foxhole.  Everybody has their own war…  Take what you need — leave the rest.  And, most importantly, I reserve the right to change and evolve my opinions over time…  That's what good conversations do — blogs, inherently, are conversations.

    There are myriad psychology models and theories on what motivates us to do the things we do:

    • Achievement theories.
    • How we respond to incentives.

    I view motivation as excitement.  So, how can you remain motivated in a simple way that works every single day?

    The next time that you pass a homeless person on the street, remind yourself that they could be a Forces veteran.  There's a very real possibility that this man or woman has served our country — they may have put themselves in harm's way, in defence of Canada, and/or in an effort to bring peace to another country.

    Within the United States, 1 in 4 people living on the streets, is a veteran.  The statistics for Canada are unknown, but it's estimated that there's likely to be tens of thousands of veterans living/sleeping rough — either on the streets and/or in the bush — under extremely adverse conditions and in abject poverty.  These hardships are exacerbated by mental illness, as well as drug and alcohol abuse, and by Canada's extreme winter weather.

    People in chronic pain, such as myself, are feeling the impact of the legal changes regarding the use of opioid analgesics for severe pain.  I used to detest pain medications.  I did all that I could to avoid making use of opioids — relying upon 8–10+G of Ibuprofen each day instead.  As I age though, I'm finding that the effects of the extreme abuse which I'd put my body through is fast catching up with my gimp-ass.

    Are you a Mary Poppins or a Nutty Professor?  These are the four different types of drunk, according to scientists.

    Everybody holds their booze in different ways, but apparently, all of us can be placed into specific drunken personality types.  Researchers, from the University of Missouri, grilled 187 students about their tipsy and sober states — sorting them into groups.

    Members of the group were then paired up into "drinking buddies" because they knew what each other were like on a night out.  The experts then came up with the four most common drunk personalities — and named them all after familiar pop culture references.

    Intrigued?  Here are the four types of drunk…

    An ever-increasing lack of authority has bred, as a leading psychologist forewarned, a "spoilt generation" of children who believe that grown-ups must earn their respect.  Aric Sigman's research shows, the rise of the "little emperor" spans the class divide and is fuelling ills from childhood obesity to teenage pregnancy.  Attempts to "empower" children, and a lack of discipline in the classroom, have also fostered rising levels of violence — at home, at school, and in the street.

    Dr. Sigman, a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, said that nursery-age children are becoming increasingly violent and disrespectful towards their teachers — "parent battering" is on the rise — and the number of policemen attacked by children is soaring.
