WIT & WISDOM - November 2, 1998

~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Try not to become a man of success but rather a man of value. - Albert Einstein [1]


I have lived to thank God that all my prayers have not been answered." - By Jean Ingelow, Signs of the Times, June 27, 1944 [2]

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated:

Wash. Biol. Surv.

Until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper:

"Dear Sirs:

While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you, it was horrible."

The bands are now marked Fish and Wildlife Service. [3]


A customer sent an order to a book club for the one they were offering that month. The distributor noticed that the bill for a previous book hadn't been paid. The collections manager then sent their form letter saying, "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one."

The collections manager received a note a few days later, "Please cancel the order. I can't wait that long." [4]
