~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

When you buy a quality product at a high price, you wince only once. - Author Unknown

A small boy wanted a pair of ice skates. His parents, hoping to develop in him a knowledge of the value of money, informed him that he would have to save the required sum from his allowance and from the money he earned for work he could do.

His mother overheard him in his room one afternoon, shaking his bank and counting his money. The little bell on the ice-cream wagon was ringing in the street below, and the mother waited to see what would happen.

There was no sound from the boy's room until the vehicle had gone on up the street and the bell could no longer be heard. Then a childish voice was heard in prayer: "Dear Jesus, please don't let the ice-cream wagon come down this street any more. Amen."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


Oh give me some pity, I'm on a committee,
which means that from morning to night,
we attend, and amend, and contend, and defend
without a conclusion in sight.

We confer and concur, we defer and demur,
and reiterate all of our thoughts.

We revise the agenda with frequent addenda,
and consider a load of reports.

We compose and propose, we suppose and oppose,
and the points of procedure are fun!

But though various notions are brought up as motions,
there's terribly little gets done.

We resolve and absolve, but we never dissolve,
since it's out of the question for us.

What a shattering pity to end our committee,
where else could we make such a fuss.

A Sunday School teacher asked her class, "Does anyone here know what we mean by sins of omission?"

A small girl replied: "Aren't those the sins we should have committed, but didn't?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:


Clean sponges: To kill germs in your sponge, microwave it for a minute every day. Thanks, Rowena!

Mole Resistance: When putting new plants in the ground, protect them from moles by lining the planting holes with hardware cloth.

Hide scratches in the back of a mirror by covering them with aluminum foil, shiny side out. Affix the foil to the mirror by painting over it with clear shellac.
