    "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." - I think you know him :biggrin:

    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    There are three that I prefer...the first one is:

    'Courage is what it takes to stand up and talk, but courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.' ~Winston Churchill

    and ...

    'If you cannot laugh at life then why live it'...this is my personal quote!

    and finally...

    'Fake it until you make it' - a 7th Degree Master of the Martial Arts. (name withheld for obvious reasons)

    "There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. "

    They say country music speaks to the heart, unfortunately it has to go through your ears to get there.
