Charles Marshburn sends quote of the day, by Mark Twain

Quote of the day
"Politicians and diapers should be changed regularly and for the same reason". - MARK TWAIN
He was a great man! - CHARLES MARSHBURN
Thanks Charles Marshburn Even though you are awaiting "Messiah Sing Along, 2014," it is good to see you've quit pouting that Prof. Chaffin hasn't made this spectacular success an annual affair. We know you know about the one at Kennedy Center in Washington, DC on December 23, 2013. Why not take a day and drive over there? In the meantime, take in the Christmas Parade in Russell Springs, KY at 5pmCT today, on Main Street. It'll do you good and you'll have ideas for a similar affair in Gadberry.
