"Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them." - Brendan Francis

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
On a certain occasion, the eloquent Dr. E. H. Chapin, being sick, was compelled to ask a friend to preach for him. As the stranger rose to announce the opening hymn, a score of persons rose to go out. This clergyman also was equal to such an emergency.
"All," he said, "who came here to worship Dr. Chapin will please leave now; but those who came to worship God will sing the forty-third hymn."
That stopped the exodus.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
COMMENTS FROM KIDS ABOUT LOVE:
Part 2 of 2 [March 16 & 27]
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
"I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns." - Craig, age 9
WHEN IS IT OK TO KISS SOMEONE?
"The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that." - Curt, age 7
"The rule goes like this: if you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do." - Howard, age 8
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
"Single is better, for the simple reason that I wouldn't want to change no diapers. Of course, if I did get married, I'd just phone my mother and have her come over for some coffee and diaper-changing." - Kirsten, age 10
HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
"You can be sure of one thing - the boys would come chasing after us just the same as they do now." - Roberta, age 7
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
"Tell your wife that she looks pretty even if she looks like a truck." - Ricky, age 10

How do we know the amount of calories in food? . . .
If you're dieting, you can tell by just by looking that cheesecake is "bad" and broccoli is "good" (keep saying it and maybe you'll believe it). Nevertheless you still have to "count" calories. But how are calories in food actually counted?
A calorie is a unit of energy in the form of heat. Specifically, it's the amount of heat that it takes to raise a kilogram of water one degree Celsius. In an instrument called a "bomb calorimeter", the food is burned in a chamber surrounded by water.
After the food is incinerated, the temperature of the water is measured. The amount that the water is warmed determines the number of calories in the food (and how many laps it will take to jog it off).
