Saturday's offerings

"To travel hopefully is a better thing to do than to arrive"
                                                             RL Stevenson

"If you don't make waves, you're not under way".

"A prune is a plum with experience".

"A budget is a plan for going broke methodically".

"It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us - the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilised, the savage - may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss - except the inventor of the telephone!"
                                                            Mark Twain 1890

How Tall?
Fred Gwynne (Herman Munster) is 195cm (6'4")

Dustin Hoffman is 170cm (5'6")

Danny DeVito is 152cm (5'0")

Did you know?
The main library at Indiana University sinks over 2.5cm every year.  When it was built, the engineers failed to take into account the weight of the books that would occupy the building.

A queen bee only uses her stinger to sting another queen bee.

Something to think about
If the sun is shining, and the sky is clear after two days of cold and rain, it's probably Monday.

The word "listen" contains the same letters as the word "silent".
