Quote of The Moment

"Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory."

Another MMT Commuinity Project - Soles 4 Souls...


Soles 4 Souls was founded in 2004, by Wayne Elsey, in the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Southeast Asia. Their mission is to provide shoes to people all over the world who don’t have shoes to wear.

To date Soles4Souls has delivered 19 million pairs of shoes in over 125 countries. This year the shoes will help Hurricane Sandy victims, refugee camps in Uganda, and even local victims of domestic violence.

Brighton Collectibles at Northlake Mall and SouthPark Mallwill serve as a drop-off facility from April 1st to April 30th.

So take a look in your closet, under your bed and ask your friends! It’s a simple thing to do that will make a big difference to those in need!. Please stop by and drop off your gently used shoes and help support this worthy cause.

Dreaded Tennis Elbow...


Tennis shouldn't hurt. There are a few reasons that people get tennis elbow. The main reason is an improper stroke. The best way to prevent improper stroke production is to have a "real tennis pro" watch you hit then make adjustments to your swing or the way you strike the ball.

Another way to help prevent tennis elbow is to stretch and streghten your arm. To find out more, click on this link from our friends at WEBMD.COM about Tennis Elbow.
