Editing finished - one more show on the road - still chatting to the i-Quote philosophers

Two submissions in five days - I feel vaguely dizzy!!

Major complaint though - 2007 reminds me of 007 (licenced to kill)
When you have 2003 on the laptop and 2007 on the computer (saving onto pendrive and harddrive) the saving doesn't always compute.
Now, it could be human error but I am over-cautious, about what is being saved and where to, and still some changes are not saved.
I'm resorting to re-checking the re-checking.
Either 2007, or I, will have to go - nifty layout, font and size changing are no substitution for having faith that when you spend time editing (the little changes that were hard to spot the first time) they are actually changed, and saved, properly.

Meanwhile, I'm having quality time with Twitter #Haiku
My need to be forced to think and write quickly, on a range of subjects, and without the luxury of wittering on at length, is assuaged by responding to the i-Quotes of the day in, syllable counting, form verse (5, 7,5)

"Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity." -- Kahlil Gibran
Avoid heart disease -
combustive or slow burners -
friendships need nurture.

"To think that you are not going to fail is an illusion. Fail faster, you will only be closer to what you want." - Unknown
To do is to know;
failure is an illusion,
take mis-takes and grow.

"If you really do put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price." -- Anonymous
This is a gift - but
service and self-sacrifice,
also, don't come cheap.

"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear." -- Mark Twain
We don't need courage,
except when we love ourselves,
or something other.

"How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it." -- Marcus Aurelius
Although, it is true
anger's seven causes breed

"Hands that serve are holier than lips that pray." -- Sai Baba
Detergent damage...?
Environmental stresses...?
Such bad allergies!
