    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I only posted the quiz about 3 pm yesterday and at about 8:30 pm the first set of "Winning Answers" was submitted by someone called "The Boss Lady" whoever she is

    I'm pretty sure Princess Sparkles will have something to say about that, the fact that she sent me some homemade triple choc chip cookies in advance of her entry will not influence my marking of her answers no siree, mmm the choc from the chips is just melting in my mouth like liquid heaven, nope it is not going to influence me at all
