Of late I am inspired to ponder on the ethereal nature of ethnernet.  Communications of the most insipid and trite nature seem to linger for ages while other messages of a more timely and helpful nature seem to disappear without a trace or acknowledgement.

But, alas, as quoleth, the preacher, reminds us: all is vanity and chasing after the wind.

Nonetheless, one must trust that our words are ultimately received, before they are whisked away, by those who yearn for knowledge and act accordingly....

Very Happy

I think it should read "All in vanity is chasing after the wind"

Odd that Socrates quotes the Old Testament.

Information is always good - unproven blame and trying to wind up the masses is questionable in these parts.

There are only two things to worry about
either you are well or you are sick.

If you are well...

then there is nothing to worry about.

if you are sick...

there are two things to worry about.
Either you rwill get well or you will die.

if you get well...


there is nothing to worry about.

if you die...

there are two things to worry about.
Either you will go to heaven or hell.

if you go to heaven...

there is nothing to worry about.

BUT IF YOU GO TO HELL...

you'll be so damn busy shaking hands
with your friends.
You wont have time to WORRY!
