A Little Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing

A Little Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing Knowledge is power but only if you have a COMPLETE knowledge. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Read the following story to see how incomplete knowledge can lead to disastrous results. Once upon a time, a group of travelers was moving through a desert. They stopped at an oasis to feed and rest their camels. Among the group of the travelers was a man who had just recently joined them. He was sitting beneath a date tree when he heard some noises. With nothing else to do, he keenly looked at the scene before his eyes. He saw a camel that had a serious case of goiter. The animal was writhing in pain. The man looked on with interest as the owner of the camel took a blanket and wrapped it around its neck. Then he took a hammer and hit>>>

Little Harry

  Little Harry  Until  a child tells you what they are thinking, we  can’t even begin to imagine how their mind is  working…. Little  Harry was doing very badly in math. His  parents had tried everything…tutors, mentors, flash  cards, special learning  centers. In  short, everything they could think of to help his math. Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Harry down and  enrolled him In the local Catholic school. After  the first day, little Harry came home with a  very serious look on his face. He didn’t even  kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. Books and papers were spread out all over the room and  little Harry was hard at work. His mother was  amazed. She called him down to  dinner. To  her shock, the minute he was done, he marched  back to his room without a word, and in no>>>

I’m a Little Tea Cup

I’m a Little Tea Cup Love this story or not, you will not be able to have tea in a tea cup again without thinking of this. There was a couple who took a trip to England to shop in a beautiful antique store to celebrate their 25th. wedding anniversary.  They both liked antiques and pottery, and especially teacups. Spotting an exceptional cup, they asked “May we see that?  We’ve never seen a cup quite so beautiful” As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke, “You don’t understand. I  have not always been a teacup. There was a time  when I was just a lump of red  clay. My master took me and rolled me, pounded and patted me over and over and I yelled out, “Don’t do that. I  don’t like it! Let me alone,” but he only smiled, and gently said, “Not yet.” Then WHAM!>>>

No charge for love

No charge for love  A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups. And set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of little boy. ‘Mister,’ he said, ‘I want to buy one of your puppies.’ ‘Well,’ said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, ‘These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.’         The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. ‘I’ve got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?‘ ‘Sure,’ said the farmer. And with that>>>

COULDA! – SHOULDA! – WOULDA!

COULDA! – SHOULDA!- WOULDA!   READ SLOWLY — IT’S PROFOUND Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven’t thought about it, don’t have it on their schedule, didn’t know it was coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine. I got to thinking one day about all those people on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I’ve tried to be a little more flexible.   How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn’t suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed? Does the word ‘refrigeration’ mean nothing to you?  How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched ‘Jeopardy’ on television? I cannot count the times I called my sister and said, ‘How>>>

I had seen the Cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50’s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question Blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if The last question would count toward our quiz grade. “Absolutely, ” said the professor. “In your careers, You will meet many people. All are significant.. They Deserve your attention and care, even if all>>>

Yoder the Amish Beagle

Yoder the Amish Beagle   Beagles are great dogs.  They are bred to chase rabbits.  But if there aren’t any rabbits around they will chase cats, cars, and boys.  And if they are really bored Beagles have even been known to chase girls.  Now the nice thing about beagles is that they are short and they stay short all their lives so they are just the right size for little boys.  They are brown and black and white and they have long ears that flop when they run. We wanted one.  One day, driving the back roads in the Amish country of Ohio, we found one.  We bought him from a nice Amish farmer so we named him Yoder. Yoder loved to romp with the kids.  We took him with us on our full-moon walks and we even took him fishing once.  We had a day of it.  He ran>>>
