Use Joy To overcome Impatience
A master at accessing and creating joyous states will find it easier to master patience. While others stew and fret over delays and the need to wait, the joyous person will use the Creator's gift of a brain to experience positive thoughts and feelings.

Personal imports to Israel become easier
A new ordinance sets time limits for issuing permits and regulates quantities allowed.
Minister of the Economy Eli Cohen has signed a personal imports ordinance that provides relaxations for the import of consumer goods and sets out regulations designed to make the process easier. In the past two weeks, online trading giant Amazon has started to set up a local online trading platform in Israel, but many Israelis do their shopping on foreign websites, an area that up to now has not been fully regulated. The new ordinance shortens the time it will take to obtain the necessary permits, setting a maximum time limit, and sets out the quantities of goods that can be brought into Israel as personal imports.
Under the ordinance, goods for personal use may be imported up to a limit of five units or $1,000. The goods in question are nutrition supplements, personal care and cosmetic products, vehicle parts and accessories such as an infant car seat, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators, irons, dishwashers, ovens, computers, televisions, printers, and similar items.
In the case of goods for which a permit is required, the maximum time for issuing it will be two days, except for telecommunications and transportation products, for which the maximum time will be fourteen days, falling to five days after two years.
Imports for the purposes of building or renovating a home will be permitted in greater quantities, provided that the importer proves that the imports are for one of these purposes.
The Ministry of the Economy presented statistics today based on a 2017 report by the Bank of Israel showing that in sectors exposed to personal imports, prices in Israel fell substantially in the period 2011-2017. In personal care products and cosmetics, prices fell by nearly 20%; in audio and video systems the decline was more than 50%; in clothing and footwear it was 10%; and in furniture and domestic appliances it was nearly 15%.
According to the ministry, the report shows that, despite the substantial effect of personal imports on prices, they represent only a small proportion of monthly household spending, amounting to an average of NIS 104, even after growth of 16% between 2011 and 2015.

Where the bodies are buried
An elderly Italian man lived alone in New Jersey . He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, since the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:
Dear Vincent, I am feeling pretty sad, because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over.. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days. Love, Papa
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Dear Pop, Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried. Love, Vinnie
At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Pop, Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love you, Vinnie
See you tomorrow
