    In life I have struggled, loved and been loved.  I have seen hope from the Mountain tops and experienced the despair and depths of the lowest valleys.  I have been educated and re-educated.  I have seen, felt, smelled and tasted life from all its menus.  I have been both well off and impoverished. 

    Does this make me wise?  No!  It just makes me worn out.

    "The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."  (Ecclesiastes 12:10-14 KJV)

    I had the top writer ribbon along with the top reviewer and WoW ribbons.  Where did the top writer and top reviewer ribbons go?  -^o^-  I worked so hard for these.

    Honors are easier to lose than to earn!  How does that work?
