Tell me with whom you travel, and I'll tell you who you are. - German Proverb

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Chuck Swindoll tells about Joe Bayly, who lost three of his children. He quotes from Joe's book, The View From a Hearse. Joe writes: "I was sitting, torn by grief.
Someone came and talked to me of God's dealings, of why it happened, of hope beyond the grave. He talked constantly. He said things I knew were true. I was unmoved, except to wish he'd go away. He finally did."
"Another came and sat beside me. He didn't talk. He didn't ask me leading questions. He just sat beside me for an hour or more, listened when I said something, answered briefly, prayed simply, left. I was moved. I was comforted. I hated to see him go."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
If Only LIFE Was This Simple...
To get your daily exercise, you'd just click on "Run"!
Hit ESC to pause life if you need a break . . . when you're ready to carry on again just press any key!
To add/remove someone in your life, click Settings and Control Panel.
If life gets too noisy, just turn off the speakers!
To improve your appearance, just adjust the display settings.
When you lose your car keys, just click on Find!
Need "Help" with work? It'd be just a click away.
Auto insurance wouldn't be necessary - You'd just use your backup disk to recover from a crash.
And if you really messed up your life, you could press . . "Ctrl - Alt -Delete" - And Start All Over!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
My teenaged niece Elizabeth was nervous as she took the wheel for her first driving lesson. As she was pulling out of the parking lot, the instructor said, "Turn left here, and don't forget to let the people behind you know what you're doing."
Elizabeth turned to the students sitting in the back seat and announced, "I'm going left."

While few of us were paying attention, GPS users created a new . . . well, they call it a sport, but "high-tech-treasure hunt" might be a better description. While geocaching has been gently derided since its birth a couple of years ago, in practice it's oddly amusing. Someone conceals a plastic box with, say, a key chain, a lottery ticket, and a Barbie doll inside, then posts the longitude and latitude online. Another player then locates the cache using a GPS unit, removing an item and leaving something else in its place. Caches are listed by zip code at http://www.geocaching.com
