Did Ya' Know: 020323 ------------------------------------ Why do some chefs wear
tall white hats? Legend has it that royal cooks were once honored with
cloth "crowns" that covered any loose locks. Over time, the hats became
white (to show food stains) and taller (to better ventilate the head).
Today this headwear remains a symbol of the master chef.

21 Rules of Executive Combat, According to Murphy's Laws
1. If the enemy
is in range, so are you. 2. Incoming fire has the right of way. 3. Don't
look conspicuous, it draws fire. 4. There is always a way. 5. The easy way
is always mined. 6. Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo. 7.
Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous. 8.
The enemy invariably attacks on two occasions: a. when you're ready
for them. b. when you're not ready for them. 9. Teamwork is
essential, it gives them someone else to shoot at. 10. If you can't remember,
then the claymore is pointed at you. 11. The enemy diversion you have been
ignoring will be the main attack. 12. A "sucking chest wound" is nature's
way of telling you to slow down. 13. If your attack is going well, you
have walked into an ambush. 14. Never draw fire, it irritates everyone around
you. 15. Anything you do can get you shot, including nothing. 16. Make it
tough enough for the enemy to get in and you won't be able to get out. 17.
Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself. 18. If you're short
of everything but the enemy, you're in a combat zone. 19. When you have
secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy. 20. Never forget that your
weapon is made by the lowest bidder. 21. If it's stupid but it works, it

Three boys were heading home from school one day when one started
the time-honored game of paternal one-upmanship. He said, "My dad's
way faster than any of yours, he can throw a 90-mph fast ball from
the pitcher's mound and run and catch it just after it crosses the
One of the other boys said, "Oh yeah? Well, my dad can shoot an
arrow from his bow and run to the target and hold it up to make sure
the arrow hits the bulls eye!"
The last boy said, "Your dads don't

After a day of grueling maneuvers under the blazing Texas sun, the platoon
stood in front of the barracks. "All right, ladies, think about this,"

Today's thought is: 020323 It feels so good to cry . --Susan Cygnet
of us were taught that it's bad to express our feelings directly-crying,
wailing, jumping up and down for joy-that it's good manners to talk softly,
slowly, and politely and to sit still.
But what happens to our feelings
when we sit still? If they don't get expressed, they must be caught inside
our bodies. Trapped feelings are like birds in a cage, or a rabbit in a
trap-they try to get out any way they can. They peck on our heads and give
us headaches. They scratch at our stomachs and make us hurt.
let them out. We must laugh and cry. Then our bodies will be happy, and
our feelings will curl up in our laps like happy puppies.
ignoring the physical symptoms of trapped feelings?
1. Never give yourself a haircut after three margaritas.
2. You need only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move
and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
3. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship "I
apologize" and "You are right."
4. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
5. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately. It's easier to
eat crow while it's still warm.
6. The only really good advice that your mother ever gave you was,
"Go! You might meet somebody!"
7. If he/she says that you are too good for him/her--believe them.
8. Learn to pick your battles; ask yourself, 'Will this matter one
year from now? How about one month? One week? One day?'
9. Never pass up an opportunity to pee.
10. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another
11. Living well really is the best revenge. Being miserable because
of a bad or former relationship just might mean that the other person was right
12. Work is good, but it's not that important.
13. And finally... Be really nice to your friends and family. You
never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.
