     *------------ Thought of the Day ---------------*
   
        In "As You Like It," William Shakespeare wrote:
        "All the world's a stage,
        "And all the men and women merely players.
        "They have their exits and their entrances,
        "And one man in his time plays many parts,
        "His acts being seven ages."
