Oh, my.  Then, I, too, am guilty.  I finally figured out how to get rid of
the pesky mice.  I purchased a humane mouse trap that looked like a little
house.  Now, will these mice develop a taste for housing?  So far, I'm
guilty of rushing about 5 mice into possible premature human incarnation.
Surrounding them with masterpiece artwork and eloquent music is no help,
either.  Hmmm, mice with a taste for housing and the fine arts....  Oh,
BTW, Mark told me he once got his cat high.  Another drug addict in the
world, my gosh, he'll burn in hell!!!

My all time favorite, cupcakes with whip cream on top lining a hunk...

P.S.  They have tons of books for dummies out there.  Maybe someone will
write "Theosophy for Dummies."
