    You might be surprised at the spiciness that can sometimes be found inside a fly.
    I think the quote I remember is "Even a fly has a spleen". This is meant to mean one can even make a fly mad. Since epinephrine is released when you fight, your spleen contracts pushing more blood in your circulation in preparation for battle. In old times this was understood but they didn't understand why the spleen contracts. Because it is a vascular organ, you can easily exsanguinate if your spleen is torn. This is why the Roman soldier pierced Christ's left side beneath his ribs to lacerate the spleen. I am not sure but I don't think insects have spleens, but I know they can get mad! Maybe I'll raise a squadron of trained killer flies. I wonder if hungry trout would like them?

        Reading the bible is like cramming for your finals. But a floating boat of some kind, I guess, can be better than no boat at all, if one is in "over their head".
        I need to do better. I only read the Cliff notes..

                  Maybe she should have and done a better walk around......then she might have noticed her radio antennae wire was broken.

                    • Good morning everyone. I don't know if this is where I should post this so if not KPRO can remove it. I have an urgent prayer request. My youngest daughter is going to have emergency surgery today to have her gall bladder removed. If those of you who believe in the power of prayer would pray for her I would be so very greatful. I hope everyone has a great day!

                        You got it buddy! And if kpro opts to remove it, I'm gone too. Prayers to guide the surgeon's hands and for a swift recovery for your daughter. Those silent words we speak so quietly come from the heart and hold much power. God be with you and your family. She will do fine - just BELIEVE.
