Fish Tale

I was doing a walk-a-bout in the local mall this weekend and came upon an aquarium. Everything about watching fish swim around in a big tank of water is so peaceful. I still don't quite understand how they can breathe underwater. Thank goodness for that big bubble machine installed by the aquarist. That white fish really seemed to be looking intently at his reflection. Maybe he wants to start changing the world by first changing himself. Heck, it's already working. He (or she) is bringing some peace to the world through this little fish tale.

Learning from the mistakes of others is wise.

Hitch Post

Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.

A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.

I am to provide the public with beneficial shocks.

When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say, 'It's in the script.'
If he says, 'But what's my motivation?, ' I say, 'Your salary.'

All quotations by Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock (1899-1980).

Dolce Vita

If you are looking for luxurious living in downtown Fargo, North Dakota, look no further than the Graver Inn. These peaceful getaways provide the epitome of lavish self-indulgence.

Built in 1917, it was originally the Graver Hotel and then subsequently transformed into 70 deluxe apartments. Just kiddy-corner from the Post Office and a half block to the Presbyterian Church, the Graver Inn is also walking distance to the many downtown bars in Fargo.

Italiens would say dolce vita but here we just say the sweet life. All the letters in "Fargo Graver Inn" can be rearranged to spell "Garnering Favor". You can bet that everyone agrees there's no question about that!

Code Numbers

In case you ever need to secretly communicate numbers with your mate, come up with code language for each digit. Once committed to memory, you can secretly speak numbers in code. Here's an example of what we're talking about:


Using this code system, what would this phone number be?
OctoMom, Sexy, Lucky, Quintus, Thorns, Circus, Nobody.
Of course, now that I've shared ours with you all, we'll have to come up with a different number code system.
