Yes I know its Valentines Day WinkWinkWink

Interesting article I read about impressions this morning :-
You meet a business acquaintance for the first time – it could be your new boss, a recent addition to your team, or a potential client you want to sign up.

The moment that stranger sees you, his or her brain makes a thousand computations: Are you someone to approach or to avoid? Are you friend or foe? Do you have status and authority? Are you trustworthy, competent, likeable, confident?

And these computations are made at lightning speed. Researchers from NYU found that we make eleven major decisions about one another in the first seven seconds of meeting.

....................and when you've been walking in mud and snow, just beware of the impression you could leave on the carpet WinkWinkWinkWink

Stunning abstract and interesting write up Jocelia, the mind is a funny thing! My father knew the date and time he would die. (The Judge told him) only joking!

This can't be the real impression of the bottom of a sole - it looks like plants and leaves - it's beautiful I grant you. I want a pair of sneakers with this kind of sole!

I must be doing something right wrt first impressions, as mothers let me photographer their children....
