Today's Quote:

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself."
~ William Blake

Brain Bender:

Sam had parked his car under a tree and was heading toward the suspect's house when a vicious dog lunged at him. Luckily for Sam, he was just beyond the dog's reach. Since the suspect wasn't home, Sam decided to leave, but he had a slight problem. The dog, straining at the end of his chain, was following Sam's every move. With the chain attached to the tree, the dog had access to both car doors. How could Sam get into his car without the dog being able to reach him?
