~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Nothing is as strong as gentleness: nothing so gentle as real strength. - Ralph W. Sockman

This story was told by Paul Harvey on the radio several years ago: A young woman was driving home from work when she snagged her fender on the bumper of another car. She was in tears as she explained that it was a new car, only a few days from the showroom. How was she ever going to explain the damaged car to her husband?

The driver of the other car was sympathetic, but explained that they must note each others license numbers and registration numbers. As the young woman reached into a large brown envelope to retrieve the documents, a piece of paper fell out. In a heavy masculine scrawl were these words: "In case of accident ... remember, honey, it's you I love, not the car!"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Where is the longest known underground river?

The longest known underground river was recently discovered in the remote mountains of Vietnam. It's the Son Trach River, which runs underground for an astonishing seven miles (11 km) through a gigantic cave called Hang Khe Rhy (Grass Stream Cave).

The expedition that discovered and partially mapped the Son Trach River spent twelve days underground, plunging through ice-cold rushing water and painstakingly mapping every curve and grotto they found.

Son Trach River and Hang Khe Rhy cave form part of the Phong Nha massif, a geological unit that contains some of the world's most spectacular karst limestone formations. The caves, passages, and above-ground formations in karst areas are formed by the action of water, which dissolves parts of the rock while leaving other parts behind.
