You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow”.                                                                                                                                 On this day in:

“Earth without ozone is like a house without a roof.”
