Way to really brrrriiinnnggg it on! LOL - silveryaspen, 2009-01-26: 08:49:00

Very funny: Makes me think of songs about food: Here's a "musical morsel" Can the Motorollingpin help this poor man? On top of spaghetti, All covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball, When somebody sneezed. It rolled off the table, And on to the floor, And then my poor meatball, Rolled out of the door. It rolled in the garden, And under a bush, And then my poor meatball, Was nothing but mush. The mush was as tasty As tasty could be, And then the next summer, It grew into a tree. The tree was all covered, All covered with moss, And on it grew meatballs, And tomato sauce. So if you eat spaghetti, All covered with cheese, Hold on to your meatball, Whenever you sneeze - OZZIEBOB, 2009-01-26: 16:55:00

Thought this T. S. Elliot quote was worth sharing: "For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."
