~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

When an old American Black woman was asked the secret of her long life and excellent health, she said, "When I works, I works hard; when I sits, I sits loose; when I worrys, I goes to sleep." - Author Unknown

A group of people were standing at a rickety old dock along a river's edge waiting for a big boat to pass. Suddenly a little boy came marching up and walked out on the dock with a red flag. As the steamboat came around the bend in the river the little boy started to wave the flag furiously. A skeptical man said to the boy, "Surely you don't expect a big boat to stop at this place for a little fellow like you?" The boy replied with confidence, "I most certainly do."

Suddenly the big boat slowed down and turned for the shore. As the little fellow walked up the gangplank to board the boat, he stopped, turned to the unbelieving man, and said, "I knew that boat would stop for me; the captain is my daddy." - By Reuben K. Youngdahl, Signs of the Times, April 1962.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Part 1 of 3 [May 7, 17, 28]

VISITORS: Quickly determine which guest is afraid of dogs. Charge across the room, barking loudly and leap playfully on this person. If the human falls down on the floor and starts crying, lick its face and growl gently to show your concern.

BARKING: Because you are a dog, you are expected to bark. So bark - a lot. Your owners will be very happy to hear you protecting their house. Especially late at night while they are sleeping safely in their beds. There is no more secure feeling for a human than to keep waking up in the middle of the night and earing your protective bark, bark, bark...

LICKING: Always take a BIG drink from your water dish immediately before licking your human. Humans prefer clean tongues. Be ready to fetch your human a towel.

HOLES: Rather than digging a BIG hole in the middle of the yard and upsetting your human, dig a lot of smaller holes all over the yard so they won't notice. If you arrange a little pile of dirt on one side of each hole, maybe they'll think it's gophers. There are never enough holes in the ground. Strive daily to do your part to help correct this problem.

The relatives were gathered for the reading of the Last Will And Testament after the long awaited death.

The lawyer opened the envelope, and read solemnly:
"Being of sound mind and body, I spent every last cent before I died."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

How does a kidney dialysis machine work?

A dialysis machine tries to mimic some of the functions of a human kidney. One of the primary jobs of a kidney is to remove urea and certain salts from the blood so they can exit the body in urine. In a dialysis machine, blood from the patient runs through tubes made of a semi-porous membrane. Outside the tubes is a solution (sterile) made up of water, sugars, etc. Red and white blood cells and other important blood components are too large to fit through the pores in the membranes, but urea and salt flow through membranes into the sterile solution and are removed.
