* How do you make an Elephant fly… First you start with a very large zipper.

# The guide on our tour bus at Gettysburg drove around the battlefield and pointed out the sites. Curiously, every one of them celebrated the bravery and creativity of the Rebels in the battle. For example he pointed out “that at this creek two brave boys from Georgia captured an entire Union regiment…” One of the lady tourists spoke up and asked, “Didn’t the North win the battle of Gettysburg?” The guide snapped back, “Nope, and they aint gonna as long as I am driving this bus.”

A fellow computer programmer in our group that designs software for one of our largest accounts requested my assistance in an installation. At first, he handled most of the work, with me just doing corrections and inputting data. Eventually, though, he asked me to help with the last phase of the training. When I sat down with one woman and told her I would be showing her out to make changes to the files, she sighed with relief. “I’m so glad you’re teaching me instead of him.” Surprised, I replied that my colleague was far more experienced than I was. “Yes”, she said, “but I feel much more comfortable with you. I get really nervous around smart people.”
