Substitute Thought for the Day

tftd with an '*' in the upper right hand corner come
automatically from an Unix Fortune File and will be
distributed in about 10 working days if not
replaced. Nearly all of the ones queued up
Wednesday needed to be replaced. However
due to a juxtaposition of unfortunate circumstances
(tftd mistake) some changes were not made.
I will resend today's tftd and attempt to properly
replace the other thoughts that didn't get replaced.
I will use items from 'Truths for Mature Humans'
submitted by Jim Berry.

I think part of a best friend's job
should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.

The capacity of human beings to bore one another seems to be vastly
greater than that of any other animals. Some of their most esteemed
inventions have no other apparent purpose, for example, the dinner
party of more than two, the epic poem, and the science of metaphysics.

I sincerely believe that there is a time in life
for drifting. There is a time for sitting back
and getting in touch with yourself. Some
of our most interesting illuminations and
ideas will come when we take time to
reflect, time to kick back and cruise awhile.

The amount of good we can do with a
glad heart and a smile is incalculable,
and the good of it goes out to others

We can often do more for others

Wanted to give an update on Jim Berry.
In typical Jim fashion here is the update:

... All that came together today! My counts that
showed an upward trend on Wednesday are now up in
the green and there is no question the transplant
worked and I'm in recovery mode. I got
congratulations from all the staff there and was
about ready to skip out of the hospital I was so
happy. Except some how in life I never quite
learned how to skip. So I walked, but briskly.

Jim, for your information and edification from Wikipedia -
Skip - A 3-beat, 4-beat, or 6-beat gait where a foot is
repeated (i.e. LLR, RRL, etc. but there are many
variations thereof: L,L,R,R, etc.) It is typically
considered an expression of giddiness, but it can be used
in the place of run when one limb is injured
but can still be used (mild sprain).

All I ask of life is a constant and
