Good Morning . . .


It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.


I was a bit under the weather this past Saturday, which gave me a chance to plant my butt firmly on the couch and catch up on backed up programs on my TIVO, primarily "Lost."  If you're watching this show, what do you think about this season so far?  How about "24"?  Ahhhh . . . so many shows, so little time!

News That Sounds Like a Joke: Settling the Gender Wars
German cancer researchers, writing in a January journal article, reported that any exercise helped ward off breast cancer in pre-menopausal women but that housework-type exercise worked for all women and was superior to job-based or leisure-based exercise.


A female chimpanzee, Judy, escaped at the Little Rock (Ark.) Zoo in January and, as she moved about, was observed entering a bathroom, grabbing a brush, and cleaning a toilet. She also wrung out a sponge and cleaned off a refrigerator, according to an Associated Press report.



As a reminder, my reason for sending this is to help keep communication lines open between friends while hopefully adding a bit of levity to the day.  Back issues are available in the Deep Thoughts section of my website.  Have a great week!
