Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

With regard to #6: My understanding is that a couple of years ago, when England was hit with devastating floods, some dioceses in Africa, remembering the aid they had received, actually sent aid to the flooded areas. Somebody got it right.
