Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: No one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side.

· Notable Quote: "Don’t ask for an easier life----Ask to be a stronger person.”

· That’s Puny Department: A Chihuahua, a Doberman, and a Bulldog are in a bar having a drink when a great looking female Collie comes up to them and says, “Whoever can say liver and cheese in a sentence can buy me a drink.” So the Doberman says, “I love liver and cheese.” The Collie replies, “That’s not good enough.” The Bulldog says, “I hate liver and cheese.” She says, “That’s not creative enough.” Finally the Chihuahua says, “Liver alone…cheese mine.”

· Did You Know Section: Greek mathematician and scientist Heron of Alexandria invented a water clock during Alexander the Great’s reign. Its purpose was to limit the time a lawyer could speak in court.
