My friend, whom I call the “The Wizard of Words” sent me this.

I think it’s funny.  Enjoy!


No dictionary has ever been able to define the difference between
“complete” and “finished”. However, in a linguistic conference, held
in London England, and attended by some of the best linguistics in the
world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese was the clever winner.

His final challenge was this. Some say there is no difference between
“complete” and “finished”. Please explain the difference in a way that
is easy to understand. His response was:

When you marry the right woman, you are “complete”. If you marry the
wrong woman, you are “finished”. And, when the right one catches you

with the wrong one, you are “completely finished”.

His answer received a five minute standing ovation.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
