Paying it forward >>>

"I spend a great deal of time passing on what I learned to others who want and need it badly. I do it for four reasons:
1. Sense of duty.
2. It is a pleasure.
3. Because in doing so, I am paying my debt to the man who took time to pass it on to me.
4. Because every time I do it I take out a little more insurance for myself against a possible slip."
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, Doctor Bob's Nightmare, page 180

The world is not yet exhausted; let me see something tomorrow which I never saw before.

When I see that dog dressed as a turkey, I have to agree with the last line of Eric Idle's song.

And thanks for remembering JFK. It seems it is no longer a part of our collective consciousness - but it is of mine and yours too.
