We learn from experience that we never learn from experience. - George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Maybe you heard the story about the day Lisa finally had enough. Her husband, Greg, loved to shoot. An expert marksman, he traveled widely to compete against other enthusiasts, and occasionally he brought home a trophy. But Lisa had no interest in marksmanship. In fact, she didn't like guns—period. To make matters worse, she missed her husband terribly while he was away pursuing his hobby. One day it dawned on her that their relationship was in trouble. That was the day Lisa finally had enough.
Lisa asked Greg to teach her how to shoot a rifle, then joined him in his travels. Soon she decided to compete at the shooting events.
To Lisa's surprise, she liked firing a rifle. And to her husbands surprise, Lisa was a very good shot. She even started bringing home more trophies than he did. But of the prizes they brought home, one stood out above all the rest: Their marriage seemed reborn. The time they spent together at their newfound common interest helped them develop a closeness that simply hadn't existed before.
Lisa's story is a good reminder that what seems like an obstacle might really be an opportunity. Creative, committed couples discover this secret everyday. Just ask a husband who's learned to love ballroom dancing or a wife who's gotten hooked on fly fishing. That's because the best times always seem to come in pairs.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A family on an exchange program from England enrolled their son in my daughter’s first grade class. We explained to her how far away his home was: It takes all day on a jet or several days on a ship to get there. She looked at us skeptically. "No, I don’t think so," she said. "Timothy always gets to school before I do."

A Checkup For Web Pharmacies
There are two programs set up to evaluate Internet pharmacies. One, the Verified Internet
Pharmacy Practice Sites,
run by the National of Boards of Pharmacy, certifies pharmacies that meet licensing and inspection requirements for their state, as well as for each state to
which they dispense pharmaceuticals. Only 13 Internet sites qualify.
the other program, is a free service that allows consumers to compare drug prices at a variety of Internet sites. It has rated 44 online pharmacies in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Israel, and elsewhere.
Gabriel Levitt, director of research and operations for PharmacyChecker.com, offers these tips for choosing a reliable online pharmacy:
Licenses Count: A pharmacy site licensed by a government authority is likely to protect its license by using good pharmaceutical practices.
Provide A Script: Internet sites that require prescriptions signed by doctors are more reliable.
Get An Address: If the online pharmacy discloses no address or phone number, surf on. -A.S.
