Jade it saying Zig Ziglar.
Reminds me of Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? episode 'The Tigeress' when the player asked Carmen who said 'Competition can make you stronger.'? Turns out it was Carmen herself...there's no joke about it!

Harriet Tubman the woman who was a Union spy in the American Civil War and using the Underground Railroad.:halo:
There is a place called The Unionville Tavern, which is not too far from my home back in Ohio, that was part of the Underground Railroad. Harriet Beacher Stowe stayed there one night, and the things that happened there on that night were at least partly responsible for inspiring her to write her book "Uncle Tom's Cabin." The Unionville Tavern has fallen into disrepair, but it has been declared a historic landmark, and people are trying very hard to save it!! :)

Sometimes we are so focused on the treasure we are seeking, that we fail to see the one right in front of us
Joe Kerr wrote on Patty's profile.
Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.

  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    I know what your going to say: why stealing? Well l was force into this way of life due to everything money and not choosing to be poor and in a homeless shetler. My family and friends have abandoned me. And so l saw Carmen on tv. Her superior stealing skills and how she gets away from ACME. I wanted to be just like her to escape the careless outside world and steal and get away with it. I want to join her crew of VILE Henchmen. I know them all. Double Trouble, Vic The Slick, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny.......

    Oh well, l did pickpocket and steal people's belongings. Like their fast food dinners and groceries. The Double Trouble twins taught me that during my training. But now, its Carmen's turn to train me to steal the world's treasures and landmarks etc etc.
