Words of Wisdom

Once again, from Merle

I've had this as a draft for a while and became sidetracked with baby excitement. Also have a recipe using spinach - probably tomorrow. I think there's enough here for one day.


><><><><> Some phrases of Wisdom.. <><><><><>

1. If you are too open minded, your brains will fall out.

2. Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

3, Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you a mechanic.

4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

6. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.

...such delightful insight here!

as for the heat, well... was it oshee who said it's not summer in Phoenix until it reaches 100F. It was 99F today, so it's not quite summer just yet...

We had 29C yesterday and it felt like a heat blast! (that's about 88F)

hope you've got a fan! (well, you have a fan in me, but that's something totally different, now isn't it!)

#8 is usually attributed to Adm. Grace Hopper who, among many other things, is arguably responsible for your ability to write this journal. She championed the COBOL programming language making computers valuable to businesses rather than just being scientific tools for researchers. Without that impetus, the who computer revolution may not have happened. She truly was an amazing woman, one of my personal heroes.
