~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Reporters and city officials gathered at a Chicago railroad station one afternoon in 1953. The person they were meeting was the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize winner. A few minutes after the train came to a stop, a giant of a man - six- feet-four - with bushy hair and a large moustache stepped from the train. Cameras flashed. City officials approached him with hands outstretched. Various ones began telling him how honored they were to meet him.
The man politely thanked them and then, looking over their heads, he asked if he could be excused for a moment. He quickly walked through the crowd until he reached the side of an elderly black woman who was struggling with two large suitcases. He picked up the bags and with a smile, escorted the woman to a bus. After helping her aboard, he wished her a safe journey. Returning to the greeting party he apologized, "Sorry to have kept you waiting."
The man was Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the famous missionary doctor who had spent his life helping the poor in Africa.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THE COMPUTER USER'S REBOOT POEM
Don't you wish when life is bad
and things just don't compute,
That all we really had to do
was stop and hit reboot?
Things would all turn out ok,
life could be so sweet
If we had those special keys
Ctrl, Alt, and Delete
Your boss is mad, your bills not paid,
your wife, well she's just mute
Just stop and hit those wonderful keys
that make it all reboot
You'd like to have another job
but you fear living in the street?
You solve it all and start a new,
Ctrl, Alt, and Delete.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
My dental assistant, who attends the Baptist church in a nearby town, related this incident to me. One Sunday morning the pastor was giving the children's story, and he asked the kids,
"What did God use to make man?"
A little girl replied, "The dust of the earth."
"That's correct," said the pastor.
"And what did God use to make woman?"
A little boy answered, "Prime rib."
