For those of us who live in the Western U.S., this may seem like a joke.  :D

As I said in my response to a friend posting this on facebook--"as determined by a poll of sewage treatment plant investors."
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it

A small plane made an emergency landing a few years ago and came to a stop just inches from the wall of our chapel. It was quite the sight to see. Pilot was ok.

We need some comic relief. So here are a couple of less ponderous stories to shake your head over. Although this first one Ö Iím not sure if itís really funny.

Silicon Valley parents hiring nannies & making them sign a contract for no exposure to electronics.

What was the weirdest thing you ever returned to a store for a refund?

If CrowGirl was around, maybe she could shed some light on this strange collection of faux castles, even though they arenít anywhere near where her family was. It may have been started after they left, but she took such an interest in Turkey and its everyday life & culture. I wonder if she knows anything about this.

High-dollar vacation homes tightly packed together near a heavily wooded area, with owners only occasionally present, in a country with marginally effective law enforcement. Umm...nope.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut & let everyone wonder if you are a fool Ö.

You canít make this stuff up.

Youíre trapped in the Burger King restroom for an hour & traumatized. You & the employees canít get the door unjammed & a locksmith is needed. The management compensates by offering you free food for life, then you claim they reneged on their promise. Lawsuit results. How does it end?

Itís 4:30 a.m.& you are a newspaper carrier making deliveries in a rural area, driving along at 5 mph so you can make all your stops. You see something white in the middle of the road, in time to avoid hitting it. Is it a cat or dog, a lamb, a pile of papers blowing in the wind Ö?

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. >:(

Iím not sure what to say about this, so I wonít. This might be a situation where a legitimate question is, ďDad, Mom, do you know where your kids are?Ē   :(
