   Mo’s Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Wisdom for Today: Give what you have.  To someone it may be better than you dare to think.

   There was a man who was born on the sixth day of the sixth month of 1966, whose lucky number was six.  On his birthday he went to the racetrack and was astonished to see that in the sixth race, scheduled for six o’clock, a horse called Sixth Sense was running; with the odds of 66 to 1.  Rushing to his bank, he was surprised to find $6,666.66 in his bank account. He withdrew the entire amount and dashed back to the races to bet it all on Sixth Sense to win.
