NIFTY TIP of the DAY 

Don’t Restrict Yourself
The tastiest dishes may not be on the menu

➔    How many times have you had a server in a restaurant read the daily specials to you?  They’re not in the printed menu; they’re not posted on a display anywhere.  But they exist and you just may want to order one.  After all, why restrict yourself to simply what’s on the printed menu? The job market is not all that different.
