Quote of the Day

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
 
- Theodore Roosevelt

Maple Love

After the year and a half it took to finish the first quart, it was time for a second. So good, especially when it's still snowing in April.

Top match.com Headlines

There are some real beauties women use for headlines on match.com.
The headline is the quick bit of text you have to grab the potential suitors attention, like...

- Slightly Used; No Box      [sounds attractive, but no]
- Not getting rid of my 773 area code      [ok, this almost worked on me]
- hi      [very catchy - how did you come up with this gem?]
- No, honey, you can't steal a cop car      [I have no words, well, except the ones I wrote here]
- "Cake or death?" " Cake please."       [Death please]
- Wanna do a crossword puzzle with me?      [do I have to?]
- Looking for the Sparkles      [is Sparkles really capitalized? What is sparkles? Look elsewhere]
- Hi      [notice the subtle capitalization of the 'h', sure to pull in would-be suitors... but did she copy that other girl?]
- Is it my turn yet?      [I don't know, I'll ask the teenager running this ride]
- Love to laugh      [wow, that is a unique trait that really draws in the boys]

Those are all direct quotes, I couldn't make this stuff up.
I only wish you could all see the photos too.
