      The great thing about human language is that it prevents us from sticking to the matter at hand.

      Very Funny......

      I wasn't the one who signed up to be the Crash Dummy at APG or the one who woke up with the chocolate mess AND....I don't have a t-shirt that says "I'm not Mr Right...but"
      Careful man..... I probably have more on you than you do on me!

      But I will give you public kudos for the letter and the FFA gag You and 2Dogs got me!

      Don't forget that the payback is still there....lurking in the shadows...just waiting to pounce ....but you are safe for awhile. You know me...I have a sense of fair play! I won't get you until you are healthy and until you are officially a daddy! THEN I will nail you!

      Re: Re: (universityvolvoOSD)

      The highest good is like water.
      Water give life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.
      It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.
      In dwelling, be close to the land.
      In meditation, go deep in the heart.
      In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
      In speech, be true.
      In ruling, be just.
      In daily life, be competent.
      In action, be aware of the time and the season.

      No fight: No blame.

      the Tao Te Ching

      Wisdom doesn't automatically come with old age. Nothing does - except wrinkles. It's true, some wines improve with age. But only if the grapes were good in the first place.

      Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

      Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

      Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

      Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

      Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

      Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
      Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

      Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

      Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

      Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

      Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

      Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually
      have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

      Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

      All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.

      Think not forever of yourselves, O Chiefs, nor of your own generation. Think of continuing generations of our families, think of our grandchildren and of those yet unborn, whose faces are coming from beneath the ground.

      An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.
