~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
When I was: Four years old: My daddy can do anything.
When I was: Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.
When I was: Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.
When I was: Eight years old: My dad doesn't know exactly everything.
When I was: 10 years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.
When I was: 12 years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn't know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.
When I was: 14 years old: Don't pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.
When I was: 21 years old: Him? He's hopelessly out of date.
When I was: 25 years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.
When I was: 30 years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a lot of experience.
When I was: 35 years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.
When I was: 40 years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.
When I was: 50 years old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
BRITISH NEWS BITS
From the Churchdown Parish Magazine: 'Would the Congregation please note that the bowl at the back of the Church labeled "For The Sick", is for monetary donations only.'
From The Guardian concerning a sign seen in a Police canteen in Christchurch, New Zealand: 'Will the person who took a slice of cake from the Commissioner's Office return it immediately. It is needed as evidence in a poisoning case.'
From The Times: 'A young girl, who was blown out to sea on a set of inflatable teeth, was rescued by a man on an inflatable lobster. A coast-guard spokesman commented, "This sort of thing is all too common these days."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
I spent a fortune
On a trampoline,
A stationary bike
And a rowing machine
Complete with gadgets
To read my pulse,
And gadgets to prove
My progress results,
And others to show
The miles I've charted-
But they left off the gadget
To get me started!

The U.S. Supreme Court is going online.
The Web site http://supremecourtus.gov eventually will give users access to high court opinions, among other things, and is designed to give free access to court documents to lawyers, the public and the media.
"Initially the Supreme Court Web site will provide on-line access to the court's (ongoing) 1999 term slip opinions," the court said in a statement. "Slip" opinions generally are issued some days after a "bench" opinion is handed down on decision day.
The site will also provide access to "1999 term orders, argument calendar, schedules, rules, bar admission forms and instructions, visitors' guides, case-handling guides, special notices, press releases and general information."
