    Agree and Mariah Carey's quote is just so wrong, incredibly ignorant.
    He did not say you will not be storm tossed, you will not be sore distressed, you will not be work weary. He said you will not be overcome.

    Gosh!

    I bet I have said equally stupid things, but luckily it's not been recorded.

    I very often say things like "You'll wake up dead!" to the kids, but they know I'm joking....l hope :?

    Thanks Stickywicket!!
