One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important. - Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Dr. F. B. Meyer was traveling to America on one occasion, and preached on "Answered Prayer." An infidel approached him after luncheon and said, "Dr. Meyer, I do not believe a word you said."
After some time spent in discussion, Dr. Meyer said, "I have to preach in the steerage now, but come with me to the service, and we shall resume our talk at the close."
As they passed along the main deck, they saw a poor old immigrant woman, with a shawl over her head, seated on the deck fast asleep. The infidel put his hand in his pocket, and quietly dropped in the old lady's lap two oranges. As they returned, they saw the woman eating an orange.
Stopping before her, the infidel said, "Well, mother, you seem to be enjoying that orange."
"Yes," she replied, "isn't my Father good to me?"
"Your father," said the surprised man, "surely your father can't be alive!"
"Oh, yes," was the reply, "He is very much alive. I felt so sick, and I longed for an orange, so I lifted up my heart to my heavenly Father and asked Him to send me one. And He sent me two. Isn't that just like my Father?"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Uncle Edgester's Words of Wisdom
(Collected from cyberspace)
At first I thought that my life was going around in circles. Then I realized it's actually a downward spiral.
I was high on life, but eventually I built up a tolerance.
I was going to buy a copy of "The Power of Positive Thinking," and then I thought, "What good would that do?"
I used to watch golf on TV but my doctor told me that I need more exercise, so now I watch tennis.
Camping is nature's way of promoting the motel business.
The day after tomorrow is the third day of the rest of your life.
I've got a sneaking suspicion that "thinking outside the box" is precisely what got me fired from my job at the box factory.
If only I could let go of all of my unrealistic expectations, then everything in my life would be perfect.
Sometimes the giant hamster of misfortune doesn't want to run on anybody's wheel but yours.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. - Ronald Reagan
Think Geek started as an idea. A simple idea to create and sell stuff that would appeal to the thousands of people out there who were on the front line and in the trenches as the Internet was forged. From programmers, engineers, students, lovers of open source, to the masses that helped create the behind-the-scenes Internet culture.
