The Week of 2/5/07

Thought of the Week:

"Here is a very interesting thing I have learned: Giving each letter of the alphabet a number, a=1, b=2, etc. If you add up the letters of the alphabet in the word "Attitude" this is the result:

A = 1
T = 20
T = 20
I = 9
T = 20
U = 21
D = 4
E = 5
100% Attitude is 100%!!"
