~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
During the campaign for the Philadelphia Assembly, young Benjamin Franklin was unmercifully criticized by an assemblyman. Franklin won the election, yet knew he had to work with his opponent.
He wasn't sure just why the fellow disliked him, but he knew he'd better do something about it.
Franklin heard the man had a fine library so he asked if he could borrow one of his rare books. That did it! The men got to know each other because of their mutual interest in books and he turned an enemy into a friend.
Don't conquer your enemies, win them over.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS ADULTS LEARN FROM KIDS
If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing puppy underwear and a superman cape.
The glass in windows (even double pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh;" it's already too late.
Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
A six year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36 year old man says they can only do it in the movies.
A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq foot house 4 inches deep
Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a four year old, Duplos will not.
No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.
VCR's do not eject peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy. It will however make cats dizzy.
