This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you
will keep trying it at least 50 more times to see if
you can outsmart your foot. But you can’t!!! 

1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off
the floor and make clockwise circles with
it.
 

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air
with your right hand. Your foot will change
direction!!!
 

I told you so… And there is nothing you can do about
it.
 

Make sure you pass this on to your friends… They won’t
be able to believe it
either!!!

Ahhhh!
 
It’s less than 2 weeks till school starts again.  I’m going into Juniour High this year.  I hope I do well this year in school. My brothers still go to elementery school.  I hope these last two weeks of summer vacation go by very vry slowly.  So I can enjoy the best of summer.  We are still going camping one more time with my Aunt and Uncle this weekend, and I am looking forward to that.

VBS Update

Posted: August 25, 2005 in Entertainment
Well, the week of VBS is over, and the final performance was on Sunday.  I helped all week with the video machine, starting, stopping and rewinding, over and over again for all the different groups that came in.  Ii also helped with any other things that needed to be done.  I had a great time, and so did all the other kids.  I’d really like to help again next year.

Compared with Gasoline…..

gas prices and others: interesting thoughts…

Subject: Compared with
Gasoline…..

Think a gallon of gas is expensive? (In the US,
gas is averaged at $2.50 US/gallon – Aug. 2005)

This makes one
think, and also puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29
………. $10.32 per gallon

Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19
…………$9.52 per gallon

Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ……………..
$10.17 per gallon

Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ……….. $10.00 per gallon

Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ………….. $33.60 per gallon

Vick’s
Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ………. $178.13 per gallon

Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85
….. ……$123.20 per gallon

Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ……………….
$25.42 per gallon

Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 ……………………$84.48 per
gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER…

Evian water 9 oz
$1.49……….$21.19 per gallon?! $21.19 for WATER

and the buyers don’t
even know the source. (Evian spelled backwards is
Naive.)

So,
the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on
water,
Scope, or Whiteout, or God forbid Pepto Bismal or Nyquil.

Just a
little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the
pump…

You Are The Carpenter

You Are The Carpenter

 

 
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of
his plans to leave the house-building business and live a leisurely life with
his wife enjoying his extended family. He would m iss the paycheck, but he
needed to retire. They could get
by.

       The contractor was sorry
to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a
personal favor.  The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see
that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used
inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career. When
the carpenter finished his work the employer came to inspect the house. He
handed the front-door key to the carpenter. "This is your house," he said, "my
gift to you."

       The carpenter
was shocked! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house,
he would have done it all so differently.

 

So
it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than
our best into the building. Then with a shock we realize we have to live in
the house we have built. If we could do it over, we’d do it much
differently.  But we cannot go
back.

       You are the carpenter.
Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. "Life is a
do-it-yourself project," someone has said. Your attitudes and the choices you
make today, build the "house" you live in tomorrow.  Build
wisely!

Remember… Work like you don’t need the
money.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.
Dance like nobody is
watching.
