And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour;”

From - 04/03/14:

A famous scientist developed a formula to bring statues to life.

He went to a local park to try it out on a statue of Gen. Ulysses Grant.

After application, Gen Grant began to move and soon was completely alive.

The scientist asked, "What's the first thing you'll do, General?"

The general answered while drawing his pistol "I'm going to kill about a million @#$% pigeons!"

April Come She Will

Words and Music by
Paul Simon (b. 13 Oct 1941) and Art Garfunkel (b. 05 Nov 1941)

Recorded by Simon and Garfunkel, 1965

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I'll remember.
A love once new has now grown old.
