    True story about me.

    When I was early elementary school age, the Baptist church on the corner rounded us neighborhood kids up for Vacation Bible School one summer.

    I proudly told my Grandma "I'm going to the West Hill Bathless Church!"


    Anecdote from the Reader's Digest:

    My 50-something friend Nancy and I decided to introduce her mother to the magic of the Internet.

    Our first move was to access the popular "Ask Jeeves" site, and we told her it could answer any question she had.

    Nancy's mother was very skeptical until Nancy said, "It's true, Mom. Think of something to ask it."

    As I sat with fingers poised over the keyboard, Nancy's mother thought a minute, then responded, "How is Aunt Helen feeling?"

    --Catherine Burns


    "At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities."

    Hi Patti

    Pretty funny story about the Bathless Church. Especially since they practice Baptism
    by full immersion.

    Nancy's mother is a classic case of someone who didn't have the full concept explained
    to her. I just read a book about "The Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney. Our young hero
    was trying to do the same thing with a Magic 8 Ball.

    Hi Peter, Welcome to the Board.

    "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

    "The future ain't what it used to be."
    -Yogi Berra

    Someone asked Yogi "What time is it?" Yogi replied "You mean now?"

    His sayings actually made sense, too, hahaha.
