Great list! Love your two quotes:

"You wouldn't care what people thought of you if you knew how seldom they did."


"Character is what you do when no one is looking."

I need the vegetarian meatloaf recipe. Send. Please.

Oh yeah, and Merry Giftmas and Happy New Crappy Year. :)

@CCCoC - I know, I know... ;-)

@kenchan13 - Will do. I've been wanting to get back.

@cerebus660 - Danke!

@Wings - The first one was from Garrison Keilor, I think he said it was from his dad. The second I first heard was from Eisenhower, but have heard it attributed to others as well.

@Lorelei - She said she wings it, but I'll get her to give me an idea of what is in it and let you know. Happy happies to you too!
