~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

What I gave, I have;
what I spent, I had;
what I kept, I lost.
- Epitaph at the grave of Christopher Chapman in Westminster Abbey, bearing the date 1680

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


The patient before you was a goat.

Instead of anesthetic he has you watch PBS.

The local bar association named him "Client of the Year."

During surgery he has to keep repeating that "thigh bone connected to the knee bone" song.

Mike Wallace and a film crew are hanging out in his waiting room.

You can beat him in a game of Operation.

All his Medical books are from the Time-Life "Do-it-Yourself Series."

He has an office sharing arrangement with a mortician.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" I said, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled and nodded knowingly, "That's why we ask."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

How do "secure servers" work? When I give my information, is it really safe?

When you log onto a secure server it communicates with your browser for a few seconds. During this communication, it sends your browser encryption information that only it and your browser can read.

Once this encryption is set, it acts like a normal web page, except that all info coming or going is encrypted. This encryption makes it extremely difficult for any third party who would intercept the transaction to decipher it. (all this extra protection is why secure servers seem to run slower than their unsecure counterparts).
