Toady's tidbits for today /
Don't skip breakfast! Start the day with some food for thought.

Words to keep
"A soul — a soul is nothing. Can you see it, smell it, touch it? No." —The Devil, played by Walter Huston (All that Money Can Buy — Dan Totheroth, screenwriter)

Our world, our story
When participants in sleep experiments are interviewed about their dreams, some report dreaming in color and others in black-and-white. Personally, I can remember having only one dream in color. I had that dream when I was a small child. It was an animated cartoon with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! It's said that men less often dream in color than women do, but of course it's usually hard to remember the details of our dreams. How about you? Do you dream in color, or in black-and-white? And, by the way, do you dream in English?
