~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Count no day lost in which you waited your turn, took only your share, and sought advantage over no one." - Robert Brault

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

At our local crematorium families are given the chance to chose the music CD they would like to enter the service to.

One family asked to enter to Elvis Presley's hit, "Love me Tender."

Well the day of the funeral arrived and the music was started ready for the family to walk in to the service.

Unfortunately the wrong track number was entered into the CD player, and the family found themselves walking in to, "Return to Sender."

From Rev. Hugh Lervy

A Report From: Monday Fodder- June 30, 2003

Photographs of the eight medical workers who died fighting Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and the following statistics about SARS made up about two-thirds of the front page of the South China Morning Post in last week's June 24, 2003 edition.

SARS toll. Eight medical workers died "fighting a disease that struck down 378 of their colleagues. In total, 1,755 Hong Kong residents were infected, 321 at Amoy Gardens alone, and 296 died. 1,262 people were put in isolation, 13,300 jobs were lost and 4,000 businesses folded. A WHO travel advisory was in place for 52 days, 13,783 flights were canceled, 3,600,000 fewer travelers crossed at Lowu (China/ Hongkong border), and 1,000,000 foreign tourists stayed away. Today, 104 days after the outbreak began, we are SARS free." (This is the official toll through June 24. In the last few days a couple other significant companies have folded and others were laid off. The toll continues to rise.)
