"I think luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity and the ability to take advantage of it... The man who can smile at his breaks and grab his chances gets on." - Samuel Goldwyn

This is definately one for Weird Friday. If you send Rob Sacchetto a picture of your head and shoulders (and money of course), he'll send back a custom portrait of you as a zombie. Sweet, but are they worth the money? It's up to you, but, personally I just need to look in a mirror in the morning. BRRRRRRR!

The Though For Today

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. They think there need be but little restraint upon themselves. The love of power may sink too deep in their own hearts." - Daniel Webster
