On Food

"I do like a bit of butter to my bread." AA Milne

Sleep 'til you're hungry, eat 'til you're sleepy. ~Author Unknown

Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven't yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food? ~Bill Bryson

Dem Bones

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone. ~Reba McEntire

The Gold

"Troubles, they may come and go, but good times, they're the gold."Dave Matthews Band
