A good laugh is a mighty good thing, a rather too scarce a good thing.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Visiting his parents’ retirement village in Florida, my middle-aged friend, Tim, went for a swim in the community pool while his elderly father took a walk. Tim struck up a conversation with the only other person in the pool, a five-year-old boy. After a while, Tim’s father returned from his walk and called out, “I’m ready to leave.”
Tim then turned to his new friend and announced that he had to leave because his father was calling. Astonished, the wide-eyed little boy cried, “You’re a kid?” 😁
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ”
“My friends, my friends, I have a speech here. It’s a speech about what this state needs. There’s no need in my telling you what this state needs. You are the state and you know what you need. You over there, look at your pants. Have they got holes in the knees? Listen to your stomach. Did you ever hear it rumble for hunger? And you, what about your crops? Did they ever rot in the field because the road was so bad you couldn’t get ’em to market? And you, what about your kids? Are they growin’ up ignorant as dirt, ignorant as you ’cause there’s no school for ’em? … Now listen to me, you hicks! Listen to me, and lift up your eyes and look at God’s blessed and unfly-blown truth. And this is the truth! You’re a hick, and nobody ever helped a hick but a hick himself! Alright, listen to me! Listen to me! I’m the hick they were gonna use to split the hick vote.
Answer: ‘All the King’s Men’
Willie Stark starts out as an idealistic lawyer, who runs for governor on a platform to gain representation for “everyday folk”, those whom he calls “hicks” in the speech used in the question. After the failure of that campaign, he continues to develop his charismatic speech style, and later becomes governor, and leader of a powerful political machine.
Broderick Crawford won the Academy Award for Best Actor, a victory which many attribute to this speech from early in the film. Robert Rossen adapted the screenplay from the Pulitzer Prize winning book by Robert Penn Warren, and changed the focus to be on Willie Stark rather than on Jack Burden (the reporter who chronicles his career) as it was in the book. The story about the loss of innocence as politics corrupts Stark into becoming one of those against whom he initially fought is thought to have been inspired by the real-life figure of Huey Long, Louisiana governor and senator who was assassinated in 1935.
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly.”
Friday’s Quizzler is….
Stronger than steel, yet lighter than cotton
Found in a corner, forever forgotten
I bother so many, but marvel a few
You can’t seem to make me
I’m a mystery to you.
Answer: Spider silk.
Spider silk is one of the most remarkable materials on Earth. Besides being five times stronger than steel, it is also extremely lightweight: a strand of spider silk long enough to circle the earth would weigh less than 16 ounces.
Despite years of study, researchers are still baffled by spider silk and have not been able to duplicate it.
