~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities; an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties. - Reginal B. Mansell

Conversion brings with it the relaxation which lets you breathe again and puts you at rest in the embrace of a forgiving God. The experience results in a calm and simple joy. For then you can say: "I don't know the answer and I can't do this thing, but I don't have to know it, and I don't have to be able to do it." - Henri Nouwen, "Men's Devotional Bible"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


43% of all statistics are useless.

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries.

Assumption is the mother of all foul-ups.

Character is what you are in the dark.

Common sense isn't.

Diplomacy is the art of letting somebody else have your way.

Education is what you get from reading the fine print. Experience is what you get from not reading it.

Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head.

He who laughs, lasts.

I don't have a solution, but I admire the problem.

Billy Bob wanted a job as a signalman on the railways. He was told to meet the inspector at the signal box. The inspector asked, "What would you do if you realized that 2 trains were heading for each other on the same track?"

Billy Bob replied, "I would switch the points for one of the trains." "What if the lever broke?" asked the inspector. "Then I'd dash down out of the signal box," said Billy Bob,
"and I'd use the manual lever over there."

"What if that had been struck by lightning?" "Then," Billy Bob continued, "I'd run back into the signal box and phone the next signal box." "What if the phone was engaged?" "Well in that case," persevered Billy Bob, "I'd rush down out of the box and use the public emergency phone at the level crossing up there."

"What if that was vandalized?" "Oh, well then I'd run into the village and get my uncle." This puzzled the inspector, so he asked, "Why would you do that?" Billy Bob answered, "Because he's never seen a train crash."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

In Alotau, Papua New Guinea, the greeting is "Bye" whether meeting a person or leaving them. "Boo Boo" is a term for older people, such as grandparents, and Dim Dim is what they call Caucasians. It means light, not dumb. "Lookum on you behind" is Pidgin for see you later. Just thought you might like to know, in case you are ever over that way.
