|Ed. Great articles funny, thought provoking as usual. How do you do it? Thanks for putting the Lupus Alliance events up on the metro. -Chuck Pottenger|
ED NOTE: I should be thanking you Chuck for your submissions to the Metro, and your help in keeping alive my memories of a great brother and human being.
Kelly, I think the February issue rocks! By the way, I see my forwards are being put to good use. I'll continue. Great Job! -gwenda
ED NOTE: I appreciate that Gwenda.
Dear Editor. Please settle an argument. Nineteen Metro readers say you use Photo Shop. I say no, Kelly would never doctor a picture. Who's right? -GRMac
ED NOTE: Let me para-phrase a former President. I DID NOT perform manipulation with those photos. Thanks Bill.
LITTLE WORD - BIG MEANINGS
You lovers of the English language might enjoy this, especially those who appreciate a 'good' colloquialism. There is a two letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.'
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends and we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and we clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special. And the UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to it, you must try building UP a list of the many ways Up is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets UP the earth. When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for my time is UP, so...

|JOKE o' THE MONTH|
Old man O'Malley had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the Widow O'Malley of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but your poor husband passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "Knowing Brian O'Malley as well as I did, I don't think so," said the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room."
It is not possible to fold a piece of paper in half more than seven times.

Did you happen to catch the building that reads "Est. 1953" when Evelyn first enters Pearl Harbor? Whoops! I guess that should have been covered up since it's just a tad ahead of the times.
