All things in life are temporary.
If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.
If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either.
What did the carrot say to the wheat?
Lettuce rest, I'm feeling beet.

Stutterers Living in the USA - from Howard D - added January 25, 2009
During the Buffalo conference, a busload of us went up to Canada. When we got to the border upon our return to the US, an immigration officer came on board the bus.
In a less than friendly, and far too authoritarian tone, he told us that all he needed to know from each of us was our country of citizenship. He then proceeded down the aisle, stopping at each row of seats, and pointing to each person. "Citizenship?" he said, as he pointed at each person.
Talk about performance anxiety! The first couple of "U...U...U...S's" seemed to go over his head, but after a few more, he started getting suspicious, curious, and concerned. Finally, someone explained to him who we were, and he relaxed.
But it was one of the funniest stuttering experiences of my life.
Insane I walk on full moons beams
I know the path. I walk up streams.
They cool my feet while my soul burns
Like hot red coals on water steams
The embers flick off of my brain
And scatter quickly but refrain
From speaking out explaining why
It is they flicker, just to die.
So aimlessly and without cause
Like me, they circle up and pause
Then look around as though to see
IF someone else lurks round like me.
Then clouds surround and crowd the moon
My eyes they close, I start to swoon,
Oh blissful sleep, how long I've waited
The peace you bring is clearly understated.
The embers cool, my feet grow warm
Insanity departs in scorn
And leaves me all alone to lie
Till morrow brings a friendlier sky
A Lady's Life

Starch is used as a binder in the production of paper. It is the use of a starch coating that controls ink penetration when printing. Your elbows get black when you have them on your morning paper because the paper does not have much starch and is therefore cheaper paper.
Sterling silver is not pure silver. Because pure silver is too soft to be used in most tableware it is mixed with copper in the proportion of 92.5 percent silver to 7.5 percent copper.
