SECONDHAND CAN BE GRAND!
There are many items that it makes more sense to buy used. This is because people sometimes buy them and rarely use them or because they depreciate very quickly. The list includes: pool tables, treadmills, boats, motorcycles,cars, campers, pianos and other pricey musical instruments....

DOC AND COD
In the Northern Hemisphere, if the left side of the moon is dark (makes a "D")the moon is waxing or getting larger every night until it reaches a full moon. If the right side of the moon is dark (makes a "C") the moon is waning or getting smaller until it is a new moon. Hence D O C. In the Southern Hemisphere the opposite is true. Hence C O D.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!
When determining whether strange behavior by a person is due to mental or other illness or because of demon possession, it is important to remember one thing. There is no such thing as demon possession.

THE POWER OF PRAYER
If you want to pray for someone who is recuperating from a serious medical problem, do NOT tell them that you are praying for them. The only scientifically conducted study on the effect of prayer, showed that people who were prayed for and told they being prayed for had many more relapses and problems than people who were either prayed for and not told they were being prayed for or people who were NOT prayed for. Scientists attributed the results to "performance anxiety."
