~~~~~~~ WIT and WISDOM - February 16, 1999
I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot. . . . and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And, that is why. . . . I succeed. - Michael Jordan

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"Some call this the ABC of salvation. A - All have sinned; B - Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world; C - Come to Christ for peace, pardon, and eternal life." By H.M.S. Richards, Jr., Signs of the Times, October 1972

Friendly checkout clerk. Thanks for keeping me that way!
Does your train of thought have a caboose?
Whisper my favorite words: "I'll buy it for you."

Ambivalent? Well, yes and no.
Is it time for your medication or mine?

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The eminent Viennese surgeon, Theodor Billroth, began one of his lectures by telling his students that a doctor needed, above all things, two gifts: He must be free from all disposition toward nausea, and he must be a good observer. "I want you to show me right away," he added "whether you can meet these demands." He then poured a nauseous fluid into a glass, dipped one of his fingers into it and licked it off; whereupon he invited the students to follow his example. Without flinching they did so. With a broad grin, the surgeon looked at them and said: "You have stood the first test brilliantly. Not so the second, for none of you observed that I dipped my first finger into the glass but licked the second." Unknown, Signs of the Times, September 26, 1906
According to a recent government publication . . .

A billion hours ago man had not yet walked on earth.
A billion dollars ago was yesterday at the U.S. Treasury
