      I will definitely avoid getting a rattlesnake bite or doing whatever it takes to get an injection of botox! It’s amazing, though, how we turn these originally deadly things around for our own good.

      Has anyone here seen The Princess Bride? I know a few of you have, I just wanted to ask. I love that movie; its the best! If you couldn’t tell already, I’m looking for conversation starters. If you have seen it, which is your favorite quote? I love all of them, but here are two I like a lot:

      “You mean you’ll put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword and we’ll try to kill each other like civilized people, is that it?”

      “Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I’m swamped.”

      I know, I’m probably a nerd in some things, but aren’t we all?

      God is great, milk-shakes are good, and people are crazy.

                  YES! We should.

                  Do any of you listen to Sovereign Grace Music?

                    Can’t say I have. I like classic country. Ricky Skaggs is pretty good.

                      Never heard of him. Some country’s good.

                      I like the Gray Havens, Sovereign Grace Music, Paperlace, and various ballad singers such as Johnny Horton, Marty Robbins, and Gordon Lightfoot.
