The Most Valuable Thing on Earth

The Most Valuable Thing on Earth Your life comprises of many things that matter to you! Sometimes, you fail to differentiate which of the things hold more value and which ones are the least important.

Do you want to know what the professor did? Keep reading to find out! The professor brought an empty mayonnaise jar in the class. He threw in a few large rocks into the jar first of all. “Is the jar full?” asked the professor. “Yes,” the class replied unanimously. He opened the jar again and threw in>>>

On a positive note I’ve learned that:-

On a positive note  I’ve learned that:- I’ve learned that:-   no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that:-  you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that:-   regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that:-  making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life..” I’ve learned that:-   life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that:-   you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that:-  if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work>>>

If You Change One Thing, You Change Everything

If You Change One Thing, You Change Everything Looking back on your life, what would you change if you could? In the classic 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life, the main character, a small-town bank officer played by Jimmy Stewart, is about to commit suicide when an angel shows him how different the lives of people in Bedford Falls would be if he hadn’t been born. The movie is a favourite because it affirms how each of us touches the lives and shapes the future in unexpected and often marvellous ways. More modern films like Back to the Future, Sliding Door, and Frequency are built on a similar premise: If you change the past, you change the future – often in dramatic and unpredictable ways. If you change one thing, you change everything. Given the potential impact of every decision you make, ………..it’s wise to think ahead! Although few things>>>

FUNKY FACTS

FUNKY FACTS In the 1400’s a law was set forth that a man was not allowed to beat his wife with a stick any thicker than his thumb.  Hence we have “the rule of thumb”. Many years ago in Scotland, a new game was invented. It was ruled “Gentlemen Only…Ladies Forbidden”…and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language. The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury. Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better. Did you know that there are 206 bones in the adult human body and there are 300 in children (as they grow some of the bones fuse together).   Flea’s can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms this is equal to a 6ft.>>>

Earth gets its price

   Earth gets its price                 “Earth gets its price for what Earth gives us, The beggar is taxed for a corner to die in, The priest hath his fee who comes and shrives us, We bargain for the graves we lie in; At the devil’s booth are all things sold, Each ounce of dross costs its ounce of gold; For a cap and bells our lives we pay. Bubbles we buy with a whole soul’s tasking, ‘Tis heaven alone that is given away, ‘Tis only God may be had for the asking, No price is set on the lavish summer; June may be had by the poorest comer.” ~ James Russell Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal, 1848       Tags: Aluminium, Satan, Video, One, Thing, Devil, Gold

a DATE

a DATE After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said I love you but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you. The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally. That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie. “What’s wrong, are you well?” she asked. My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news. “I thought that it would be pleasant to be with you,” I responded. “Just the two of us.” She thought about it>>>

A HOMELESS MAN’S FUNERAL

  A HOMELESS MAN’S FUNERAL As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.  He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the Kentucky back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and  the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the  grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers>>>
