Here I will post various things that I find amusing or interesting, or both. Some of them may not seem to belong on a family history site now, but in time they will become historical.


THE AUTHOR OF THE FOLLOWING QUOTE IS UNKNOWN
"Christian character is not an inheritance; each individual must build it for himself."

Words in each corner of a mock business card belonging to a friend of my father's are "NO WORRIES" "NO BUSINESS" "NO PHONE" "NO MONEY". Under the name is the word "retired," then it says, "I lived long enough to see man land on the moon but retired before I had to help pay for it."
