Sunday Reflection
Make me thankful that I am a man who, with training, has chosen to help others with less talent than I.
As I do my daily work, help me always to remember that I hold a life in my hands as I fasten a nut, repair a brake, or adjust the power steering.
Let me not forget that, as I do my job, my repution will reflect my efforts.

The Mechanics' Prayer

Joke of the day:
What do you get when dinosaurs crash their cars?
Tyrannosaurus wrecks.
Did you groan? (send us your own favourite joke)
