What do Bill Clinton, W.C. Fields, Rosie O’Donnell and Maria Carey all have in common. They are among the millions who suffer from Rosacea. Rosacea is a form of acne that usually manifests itself as red blotches that appears similar to sunburn or blushing. Typically, it is more likely to be found in those with very fair skin.
The condition is believed to be exacerbated by exposure to sun, stress, emotions, diet and weather. Acne Rosacea is different from most forms of acne in that it cannot be cured, and it does not go away as the sufferer ages. However, it can be successfully treated and controlled with drugs, cleaners, light therapy and chemical treatments.
For years now I have been under the assumption that Santa Clause has rosy cheeks due to that North Pole weather and him flying around in an open sleigh (and perhaps a little high blood pressure). However, it may just be that Santa is just in need of a good rosacea skin care product.
What are the benefits of using colloquium as the format for study?
The above video clip is from the 1948 movie “Apartment for Peggy.” For details on this movie check out the review at this link.
But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?

A life not lived for others is not a life.
I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.
I am told that God loves me—and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Can we actually know the universe? My goodness, it is hard enough finding your way around in Chinatown.
I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying.

His lack of education is more than compensated for by his keenly developed moral bankruptcy.
I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.
I’m not afraid of death. It’s just that I don’t want to be there when it happens.
My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.
The lion and the lamb will lie down together, but the lamb won’t get much sleep.
The universe is merely a fleeting idea in God’s mind–a pretty uncomfortable thought, particularly if you just made a down payment on a house.
To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down.
