"We only have what we give." Isabel Allende

"To think I spent all those years in medical school when I could have become a health care expert just by running for Congress."

A woman wearing a real tight dress, and carrying a bunch of packages tries to get on a bus. 

She can’t get up the step so she reaches behind and drops the zipper on her skirt a little, tries again. 

Still can’t make it, so she drops her skirt zipper a bit more, still no luck. 

She reaches back drops her skirt zipper a bunch and the guy behind her grabs her, picks her up, carries her on the bus, pays both fares, sets her down and kisses her left breast. 

The woman slaps him, and the guy says, “Honey after you pulled my zipper down the third time, I figured we were friends.”

It's Rocky Road Day! Throw in bits of chocolate, marshmallows, nuts and you've created rocky road, whether it's ice cream, brownies, or fudge. Rocky road came from traveling businessmen trying to hoodwink the miners at the gold mines in 1853. They carried confectionary that often spoiled but mixed with bits of chocolate, marshmallows, and nuts, the spoiled goods became rocky road and the miners loved it. The name was chosen because of the rocky roads the traveling businessmen had to traverse to the mines.
