something his wife can beat him at.

first wife divorced him and his second wife wouldn’t.
As a mother was bribing her little boy with a quarter so he
would behave, she said, “Why do I always have to pay you to
be good; why can’t you be good for nothing like your father?”
“The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something
we do not understand.” – Frank Herbert

“Everyone is as God has made him, and oftentimes a great deal worse.”

Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing
on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. 
“I don’t have any kids. Well, at least none that I know about.
I’d like to have kids one day, though. I want to be called 
Mommy by somebody other than Spanish guys in the street.”

Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “Yes – it wasn’t logical.”  “You were a TOMATO. A tomato doesn’t have logic! A tomato can’t move!” 

Answer:    Tootsie!
In this scene out-of-work actor Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) is complaining to his agent George Fields (played by director Sydney Pollack) with the first line, that in a commercial, featuring him dressed up as a tomato, he was asked to do something that wasn’t logical. The agent explodes with the second. The movie title “Tootsie” was suggested by Dustin Hoffman. It was his mother’s nickname for him when he was a child.

Monday’s Quizzler is…….

The housewives of Clematis Lane are a very disparate group. Each housewife was born under a different sign of the Chinese zodiac, prefers a different brand of household cleaner, went on a second honeymoon to a different European capital last year, and has a family member with a strange medical problem related to a different eponymous body part. Can you determine the name, zodiac sign, cleaner, honeymoon destination and afflicted family member’s body part for each housewife?

Housewives: Alma, Blythe, Helen, Leslie, Roberta
Zodiac Years: Dragon, Horse, Ox, Pig, Rooster
Cleaners: Ajax, Bon Ami, Comet, Lysol, Vanish
Honeymoon Cities: Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Oslo, Paris
Body Parts: Achilles’ Tendon, Adam’s Apple, Bundle of His, Fallopian Tubes, Islets of Langerhans

1. The five housewives are: Roberta, the one born in the Year of the Dragon, the one who prefers to use Bon Ami, the one who travelled to Amsterdam and the one whose daughter ruptured an Achilles Tendon after being kicked in the ankle by a soccer mom just before the championship game.

2. Neither Blythe (who hasn’t been to London) nor the housewife born in the Year of the Horse (who doesn’t use Vanish) is the one with a brother whose pacemaker, installed to correct a defect with his Bundle of His, somehow triggers her automatic Lysol shower cleaner.

3. The housewife who went to Brussels has a son with hyperactive Islets of Langerhans, requiring him to constantly eat candy or risk lapsing into a diabetic coma.

4. Neither Leslie nor the housewife who uses Comet cleanser is the woman who was born in the Year of the Rooster and whose husband, ironically, can’t crow about his exploits after suffering a crushed Adam’s Apple while participating in a joust at the County Fair.

5. Helen (who wasn’t born in the Year of the Pig) went to Paris for her second honeymoon.

6. Neither Leslie nor the housewife born in the Year of the Ox has the brother with a defective Bundle of His or the daughter with the ruptured Achilles Tendon.

7. The housewife born in the Year of the Dragon doesn’t use Lysol or Ajax.

8. The housewife born in the Year of the Horse doesn’t use Comet.

9. The housewife born in the Year of the Ox isn’t the woman with a twin sister who had her Fallopian tubes removed after an ectopic pregnancy and now wants her sister to act as a surrogate.

10. Alma has never been to Oslo.
