"There was no need," she said. "I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night." Speaking of cats, were you aware that cats are part of the diet of great homed owls? Pretty hard to argue with that Greek proverb that claims the old age of an eagle is better than the youth of a sparrow. Lily Tomlin says: "The best mind-altering drug is the truth." The government memo was marked at the top 1- 1071-P1OF5-NOBU-COS-WP. Translated, that means that it came from the government agency which desig- nates itself as No. 1; that it is order 1071 of that agency; that it is page I of 5 pages; that the form is printed on one side of the paper only (no hack up); that the pages are collated and stapled; that the questionnaires are wrapped in bundles.

While 0041L To better serve a growing population and its increased reliance on modems, cellular phones, fax machines, and pagers, the telephone companies of Minnesota have split the 612 area code into two area codes: 612 and the new 651. This kind of change is not just occurring in Minnesota, but throughout the country. And because the new codes differ in format from previous codes that contained either a I' or a 0' in the second digit, you should check all PBXs and Central Office-based systems for compatibility. Some of these systems may require reprogramming or upgrading. Cellular phones may need to be reprogrammed by your cellular service provider. To test your equipment, call the new Minnesota State area code test line at no charge: 1-800-441-5516. If you have any difficulty dialing the new area code, please call your operator to assist you in placing your call.
