One of the fun things about blogging here is sharing good email. Today, other than the above picture I took in Colorado a few years ago (Mom says it's OK to show this picture), is todays entry. The following proves that you probably need to pay attention to what you say as your words may follow you around like stink on... well you get the idea.

Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?

Answer: "I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever," --Miss Alabama in the 1994 Miss USA contest

"Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff." --Mariah Carey
