On Trouble

Don Forsling, WOI-fm morning show host, always gives a thought for the day...

He was on a roll again today.

In times of trouble, to get back on your feet, skip a few car payments.

Didn't laugh?

Think a minute; it will come to you. He's a very punny guy.

In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb -- Lorie Hill

Ever wonder where we got the phrase "In like a lion, out like a lamb"?

I have no idea if this is the original one, or not, but it sounds good to me.

In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb

March roars in like a lion so fierce,
the wind so cold, it seems to pierce.

The month rolls on and Spring draws near,
and March goes out like a lamb so dear.
    -- Lorie Hill 

Spring Cleaning -- -- Susan Reiner

Here's another one I like:

March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.
