Memorial Day: "War is hell"

" War is at best barbarism... It's glory is all moonshine.
It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard
the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud
for blood, more vengeance, more desolation.
War is hell."

Gen. William T. Sherman - 1879
10 years after he led Union forces to victory in the Civil War

No man is an island,Entire of itself. Each is a piece of the continent,A part of the main.If a clod be washed away by the sea,Europe is the less.As well as if a promontory were.As well as if a manner of thine own Or of thine friend's were.Each man's death diminishes me,For I am involved in mankind.Therefore, send not to know For whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.
-- "For Whom the Bell Tolls," John Donne

Why did the chicken cross the road?
HumanistNetworkNews.orgMay 16, 2007
Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross roads.
Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest, chickens in motion tend to cross roads.
Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends on your frame of reference.
Stephen Hawking: We can explain this by moving the video of the motion of the chicken in the backward direction and study the beggining of its motion.
My Physics teacher: I cannot tell u that as it is beyond the scope of ur text book.
The Bible: And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the Chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Happy Mother's Day
Mom, Thank you for all you do for so many, especially your family.
There seems to be people that rise to the occassion in families
-those who care and are given and are the caregivers formally or informally.
I want you to know & I'm sure Daddy would too - that you will not need to go through all this care alone.
I have great memories... from the car sliding backwards, lessons on honesty, the kids saying how pretty my mom is & all of your involvement in all of
our education & lives. I read often a passage where a beautiful person lives out & preaches their own eulogy without the need for the praises of others. Prov.31 This is certainly true of your life & your care for others.

I Love You
sorry I lost the brown plaid shirt
some kid found a treasure!

Man is fed with fables through life, and leaves it in the belief he knows something of what has been passing, when in truth he has known nothing but what has passed under his own eye.-- Thomas Jefferson
