    Welcome to the New message board!
    I know it is going to take a little while for everyone to learn there way around.
    I welcome all comments on the upgraded site so please tell us what you think!

    Let me get this started off on the right foot!

    A Brief History Of Medicine

    I have an earache.
    2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root.
    1000 A.D. - That root is heathen, say this prayer.
    1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition, drink this potion.
    1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill.
    1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.
    2000 A.D. - That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.

      It is my hopes that this string will be far far from Kanasas and more into the world of the funny and strange ...Larry I think we have found you a new home.
      Enjoy yourself

        Ya know working at Disney especially at the House of Innoventions reminds me of TOTO. We actually have a TOTO toilet that has seat lifter, seat warmer, and it even comes complete with water sprays and a blow dryer. :P How's that for not being in Kansas anymore!

          I think that toilet sounds great mary, as long as you tell the next person to use about all it's features BEFORE they use it.

            But that takes all the fun out of it. You should see the looks on the kids faces in the tour when I ask them if they want to try it out!

              Mary,

              True story: We moved back tothe US in May from Japan. ToTo is a popular plumbing hardware company there. On to the rest of the story: For my husband's going away gift they gave him one of those heated seats with all the bells and whistles! It was hilarious! Try explaining to the postal workers why you are mailing a heated toilet seat back home.
