The richest person in the world is not the one who still has the first dollar they ever earned. It's the person who still has their first friend. - Martha Mason (1864 - 1949)

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Tips on Love
From those that should know (All the questions are answered by kids age 5 - 10)
WHAT IS THE PROPER AGE TO GET MARRIED?
"Eighty-four, because at that age you don't have to work anymore, and you can spend all
your time loving each other." (Judy, 8)
"Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife." (Tom, 5)
WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
"On the first date they tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 10)
WHEN IS IT OK TO KISS SOMEONE?
"You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her
own VCR 'cause she'll want to have videos of the wedding." (Jim, 10)
"Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours." (Kally, 9)

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A very very rich man realized he was nearing death. He was upset that he could not take his wealth with him, and started praying each day and night to take his wealth with him. An angel appears unto him and tells him, "Sorry, you can't take it with you." He implores the angel to speak with God, and bend the rule this one time. He continues to pray and finally the angel reappears, and says God, has decided to make this one exception, he will let you take one suitcase with you.
The man gets his largest suitcase and fills it with gold bars, and places it along side his bed. He dies and shows up at the pearly gates. St. Peter says hold on you aren't allowed to take anything with you, that suit case can not come in here. The man tells him to check with the Boss, that he has permission to bring one suit case with him.
Sure enough St. Peter checks, and comes back and says, you're right the Boss says you can bring in one suitcase, but I have to check its contents. St. Peter opens the suitcase, and exclaims "You brought pavement?"

The biggest coins in the world weigh close to four tons! These coins were used on the island of Yap, in the Caroline Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The coins were made from limestone found in caves on other islands hundreds of miles way, and were valued according to the quality of the limestone, the weight of the coin, and the difficulty transporting it. Many men lost their lives transporting these huge rocks back to Yap. Even the small denominations of currency on Yap were pretty large - the smallest coins were about nine inches (23 cm) across!
