Friday's Musing

Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance....................................

Are you ready to insist on school vouchers yet? According to a June report in "The Guardian," at least two school district in Belgium will begin to serve a very-low-alcohol beer in public school cafeterias in an effort to wean kids aged 3 to 15 from sugary sodas and fruit juices. In this country they insist on getting a Doctor to proscribe Ritalin in most schools. Anything to "dumb down" the future citizens.

Susie's Servings .......................

They say you can't have too much of a good thing. Hmmm..... I wish I'd been part of that study.

Even if you are the on right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second best policy.

The principal function of the month of March is to use up the Winter weather that wouldn't fit in February

On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good and not quite all the time
