QUOTES OF THE DAY
“Kids? It’s like living with homeless people. They’re cute but they just chase you around all day long going, ‘Can I have a dollar? I’m missing a shoe! I need a ride!'” –Kathleen Madigan
“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.” -Douglas Adams
“When you’re a parent you’re a prisoner of war. You can’t go anywhere without paying someone to come and look after your kids. In the old days, babysitters were paid about 50 cents an hour, and they’d steam clean the carpet and detail your car. Now they’ve got their own union. I couldn’t afford it, so I asked my mother to come over. The sitters called her a scab and beat her up on the front lawn.” -Robert G. Lee

I returned to my parents’ home to attend a funeral. At the temple, my mother led me to a man who looked vaguely familiar. “Barbara, remember Rabbi Green?” she asked as she left me in his company.
I frantically tried to place him, and suddenly it came to me. He was the kind man who, five years earlier, had officiated at my grandmother’s funeral. “It’s good to see you again, Rabbi,” I said. “Though I wish it weren’t always under such tragic circumstances.”
The rabbi looked perplexed but uttered some words of consolation before he was called away. A few minutes later, I rejoined my mother.
“Imagine,” she whispered, “after all this time, to run into the rabbi who performed your wedding!”

The lakes are part of a chain, with locks between some of them. Many shipwrecks occur by grounding on rocks in shallow water. The initials spell “homes”, which are found in neighborhoods.
