Quote of the Week
"Come gather 'round people; Wherever you roam; And admit that the waters; Around you have grown; And accept it that soon; You'll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you; Is worth savin'; Then you better start swimmin'; Or you'll sink like a stone; For the times they are a-changin'.
