This quote comes from an obituary in Tyler's paper yesterday. Mr. Martin (1931-2011) - his summary of effective business practices:
"Always tell the truth;
understate, rather than overstate your abilities;
prioritize, because all things are not equally important;
and don't forget that you can't make a good contract with a bad person."
I love to Listen to older people. What wisdom we glean from them!

"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in."
"Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
I am reading the paper right now, and I came across an article, "Cosmic Census Finds Tons of Planets in Galaxy". They esimate 300 billions of stars in the Milky Way. This is guess-timating to me... maybe they should read Isaiah 40.......
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom."
I am just in awe of my God...what is life without Him...
