promote the happiness and salvation of the world.”

http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2006/11/dream-a-little-dream-of-scone/ - Dreamy Cream Scones - "...These scones are the height of scone perfection, a pastry dream-come-true, should you be as odd as I am and occasionally dream a little dream of scone. They are moist and structured, but still soft and light, ever-so-slightly crisped exterior. They have just the right level of sweet, and I didn’t need to sugar or glaze or really anything them to make them work...."

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/02/15:
|A small piece of rope climbed
onto a barstool.
The bartender said he did not serve rope in his bar, and tossed it out to the street.
The rope asked a passerby to tie him into a knot, and then ruffle both ends.
The rope went back into the bar, the bartender looked down at him and said, "Hey aren’t you that same piece of rope I just tossed out?"
The rope responded: "No sir, I am a frayed knot.”
