~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Loyalty can lead to fanaticism. Caution can become timidity. Freedom can become license. Confidence can become arrogance. Humility can become servility. All these are ways in which strength can become weakness. - Dore Schary - Bits & Pieces, December 9, 1993

(Magazine: BITS & PIECES http://www.epinc.com/ )


"If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it." - Max Lucado

"We, as Christians, need to stop telling God how big our mountains are and start telling our mountains how big our God is!" - John Osteen

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


Second-grader's advice to his kindergarten brother:

"They work on you until they get you to spell 'cat.' Then you're trapped. The words get harder and harder."

From Terry Marchal in Charleston Gazette http://www.wvgazette.com/

A teacher was working with a group of children, trying to broaden their horizons through sensory exploration. With their eyes closed, they would feel objects from pumice stones to pine cones and smell aromatic herbs and exotic fruits.

One day the teacher brought in a great variety of lifesavers and had the children close their eyes and taste them. They readily identified the taste of cherries, lemons and mint. But honey-flavored lifesavers had them stumped. "I'll give you a hint," said the teacher. "It's something your Daddy probably calls your Mommy sometimes."

A young fellow spat out the lifesaver and shouted: "Spit 'em out, you guys! They're dingbats!"

1st little girl: Do you believe in the tooth fairy?

2nd little girl: No, I used to, but now I don't. I think it's just a regular fairy who gets dressed up.

From the Sy & Phil show, 98MOR-FM radio, Dunedin, New Zealand.

I'm down in the basement when I hear something fall down the steps. So, I go take a look. There, at the base of the steps lies a package of donuts. I look up and there's my 3 yr old daughter.

"Why did you toss the donuts down the steps?" There's a question I never thought I would be asking.

"I need you to open them", she said in a very matter-of-fact way.

Scrawled across the dorm wall were the words, "Question Everything!"

A couple of days later someone added one word . . . "Why?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Where did the computer named HAL of "2001: A Space Odyssey" get its name?

The infamous computer from "2001: A Space Odyssey" was named by putting together each letter in the alphabet preceding the letters IBM (HAL).
