Good morning! Yesterday was bill paying day, I got the mail, cleaned the house, showered, turned on some dish Music, downloaded a movie from Blockbuster@Home for later, took the dogs out, grilled a hamburger outside for lunch, then settled down to work on the ripple afghan kit. Yesterday's Sims game was Lakeside Mansion (2nd day in a row) & my Sim Nikki is in the university on an apprentice phys ed award. She's been going to classes & working on her skills. She has only 2 game days left until she graduates & changes. This morning I took the dogs out & loaded up us in Sims. When I say us, I mean our Sim selves. It's an exact replica of our house, our pets, & us. 1st order of business ... cook some macaroni & cheese for dinner. :)

Do jumping jacks. Vigorous exercise that boosts your heart rate quickly can increase your levels of adrenaline & cortisol, 2 body chemicals that give a shot of energy to your system.

Even though there were only 15,000 registered voters in Liberia's 1927 presidential election, the incumbent Charles D.B. King received 324,000 votes. This won King the dubious achievement of winning the most fraudulent election in history.

I felt a real sense of power today. I was driving to work today. My car backfired & the whole highway parted like the Red sea. I shouldn't joke about it too much - it's getting rough out there. Somebody, I understand, took a shot at Michael Landon on the Highway to Heaven. -Johnny Carson 1987

Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I'm tempted to think ... there are no little things.
