I just don't want to be there when it happens." - Woody Allen"The only cure for sea-sickness is to sit on the shady side of an old brick church in the country." - English sailors' proverb"The nurse should never neglect to attend to the patient's bodily hygiene on the pretext that such measures do little good and are not urgent." - Florence Nightingale
