WIT & WISDOM - August 10, 1998
There is a destiny that makes us BROTHERS;
None goes his way alone:
All that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own.
- Edwin Markham

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Some time ago an evangelist traveling on the (railroad) cars was singing to himself the song, "I've been redeemed." A fellow passenger, hearing him, joined in the song. After singing, the evangelist put the question to the stranger, "Have you been redeemed?"
"Yes, praise the Lord."
"May I ask how long since?"
"About 1900 years ago."
The reply was astonishing, and thoughts of insanity were astir in the mind of the evangelist. "Nineteen hundred years ago!"
"Yes, sir, but I'm sorry to say that it's not much more than a year since I've known it." - By Llewellyn A. Wilcox, Signs of the Times, May 24, 1927 
To eliminate that icky car air-conditioner smell, try this: When your car is parked, turn the car on and open and run all vents to get air flowing through the car. Step outside the car and, while the vents are running, spray Lysol into the vents located under your windshield wipers. Let the vents run for a few minutes, and then turn the car off. - The Learn Letter, Copyright 1998, Panmedia Corporation. All rights reserved.
