Parting Comments


·      Deep Thought of the Week: Nothing is more common than unfulfilled potential.


·      Notable Quote: “Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error.”---Cicero


·      That’s Puny Department:  Once upon a time in the old West, the Hangman was asked, “Is old rope good enough for a hanging?”  The Hangman replied, “ Frayed knot. That stuff is bad noose.”


·      Did You Know Section: In 1837 the United States was in the grip of a financial panic.  Market plunged downward.  Hundreds of banks closed their doors.  People wondered if the economy would ever right itself again.  But in the midst of these hard times a Midwestern businessman planted a seed that would flower into a multibillion-dollar business.


Alexander Norris had two daughters.  One was married to a maker of candles, the other to a maker of soap.  Each man’s business depended on a steady stream of animal fats.  Rather than see his sons-in-law compete for the same raw materials in a depressed economy, Norris urged them to go into business together.  Reluctantly, they agreed.  Today, they are recognized around the world for turning animal fat into a fortune.  Their small Cincinnati business has become a worldwide powerhouse with more than 250 brand-name products, from Pepto-Bismol to Pampers. 

The sons-in-law were named William and James.  Their last names?-----Procter and Gamble.
