You know you're from the Gulf Coast when...
Look, Honey, I just bought the answer to all our problems!
The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that's laughter. The moment it arises, all our harnesses yield, all our irritations slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place. Mark Twain

Take care of yourself :
Within each of us is a hidden store of energy.
Energy we can release to compete in the marathon of life.
Within each of us is a hidden store of courage.
Courage to give us the strength to face any challenge.
Within each of us is a hidden store of determination. Determination to keep us in the race when all seems lost."
