Welcome to the November 30, 2007 edition of living a real life.

We have had another submission bonanza for this edition. Please remember to submit only one article for the carnival as we have too many submissions to include them all. Do not submit articles that are advertisements because they offer no value to the readers. For future carnivals, because we have so many submissions, I will exclude all of your submissions if you send more than one. I don't want to be mean, here, but you can see for yourself that we have more than enough quality articles for this carnival.

There are some wonderful posts here, and I know that there is a lot to get through so why not bookmark this post and come back to it? Read it slowly and absorb the ideas and information that they contain. Thank you for reading, and to all contributors thanks for the submissions.

Now, grab a coffee and read.........
