“Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count;
everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.”


- Albert Einstein

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

“Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely. ... He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken.

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940

       From George Helliesen ('61) of VA - 06/07/16 - "The Unacceptable Tax Return":

The Unacceptable Tax Return

This example shows the importance of accuracy in your tax return.

The IRS has returned the Tax Return to a man in New York City after he apparently answered one of the questions incorrectly.

In response to the question, "Do you have anyone dependent on you?" the man wrote: ... "7.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack-heads, 4.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons, plus 450 idiots in Congress and a group that call themselves Politicians."

The IRS stated that the response he gave was unacceptable.

The man's response back to the IRS was.... "Who did I leave out?"

     Thanks, George!  

“When all else fails, there's always delusion.

- Conan O'Brien
(b. 18 Apr 1963
)

Count every star in the midnight sky
Count every rose, every firefly
For that's how many times I miss you
Heaven knows I miss you

Count every leaf on a willow tree
Count every wave on a stormy sea
Count every star and darling when you do
You'll know the times I have cried for you

Count every leaf on a willow tree
Count every wave on a stormy sea
Count every star and darling when you do
You'll know the times I have cried for you
