~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

A mind, like a home, is furnished by its owner, so if one's life is cold and bare he can blame none but himself. - louis L'Amour,

Reader's Digest, 2-98


We shouldn't deny the pain of what happens in our lives. We should just refuse to focus only on the valleys. - Charles Swindoll

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you!

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

If you can't laugh at yourself, you may be missing the joke of the century.

It's almost impossible to overestimate the unimportance of most things.

Some minds are like concrete--all mixed up and permanently set.

Some people are wise, and some are otherwise.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

The severity of the itch is proportional to the reach.

They say you can't really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes. I say if they've got itsy-bitsy feet or some kind of foot disease, I don't wanna know 'em!

Those with the best advice usually offer no advice.

At age 20 we worry about what others think of us. At 40 we don't care what they think of us. At 60 we discover they haven't been thinking of us at all. - Ann Landers, Signs of the Times, March 1993 http://www.pacificpress.com

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Edward Larson, a University of Georgia historian, and Larry Witham of Seattle's Discovery Institute, replicated a 1916 survey by James Leuba, which shocked the nation with the finding that most scientists did not believe in God. Leuba predicted that as education improved, people would be less likely to believe in a Supreme Being.

"To test that belief, we replicated Leuba's survey as exactly as possible," Larson and Witham wrote in an article for the science journal Nature. "The result: about 40 percent of scientists still believe in a personal God and an afterlife. In both surveys, roughly 45 percent disbelieved and 15 percent were doubters (agnostic)." - E. P. News
