Make no judgments where you have no compassion. - Anne McCaffrey

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
The maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to the serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed, Subsequential Internal Non-Morality, or more commonly known as S-I-N, as it is primarily symptomized by loss of moral judgement.
Some other symptoms:
(a) Loss of direction
(b) Foul vocal emissions
(c) Amnesia of origin
(d) Lack of peace and joy
(e) Selfish, or violent, behavior
(f) Depression or confusion in the mental component
The manufacturer, who is neither liable or at fault for this defect, is providing factory authorized repair and service, free of charge to correct this S-I-N defect.
The number to call for the recall station in your area is: P-R-A-Y-E-R. Once connected, please upload your burden of S-I-N by pressing R-E-P-E-N-T-A-N-C-E.
Next, download J-E-S-U-S into the heart. No matter how big or small the S-I-N defect is, the JESUS repair will replace it with:
Please see operating manual, HOLY BIBLE, for further details on the use of these fixes.
WARNING: Continuing to operate the human unit without correction, voids the manufacturer's warranty, exposing owner to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
When my daughter was about five we bought her a kitchen play set, complete with stove, sink, refrigerator, table & chairs, chalkboard, dishes, telephone...you name it. After setting it up I asked her if she was going to cook dinner for mommy and daddy. Excited, she shook her head yes! She ran to the telephone and ordered three cokes, three fries, and three hamburgers. - By Barb

The 12th president of the United States was David Rice Atchinson, a Missouri senator who served for one day in 1849. The new president usually took office on March 4. But that year it fell on a Sunday, and although President James Polk left on schedule, Zachary Taylor did not take the oath until the next day. Rice was president pro tempore of the Senate, and under the provisions of the Constitution, he served until Taylor was sworn in. Atchinson neither started a war nor raised any taxes: he just left quietly after 24 hours.
