I sat down with my two year-old Granddaughter, Faith, to rock her to sleep at nap time. Her normally radiant countenance turned to a little frown because she wanted to play with grandma instead of napping.

That morning in my quiet time I had read about smiles, so I just kept smiling. In a few seconds Faith looked at me again and the frown had turned to a smile. She reached up and hugged me. I knew the smile had done it.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Out for Dinner MATHEMATICS

This is pretty neat how it works out.

It takes less than a minute...

Work this out as you read.

Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have dinner out. (try for more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be bold)

3. Add 5. (for Sunday)

4. Multiply it by 50 - I'll wait while you get the calculator...

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1753... If you haven't, add 1752...

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number .

The first digit of this was your original number

(i.e., how many times you want to eat out each week.)

The next two numbers are...

Your Age!

(This formula will only work for 2003.)

A man is recovering from surgery when a nurse asks him how he is feeling. "I'm O.K. but I didn't like the four-letter-word the doctor used in surgery."

"What did he say," asked the nurse.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

My friend Rhonda was telling me how rushed she was that morning getting her three children off to school. One of them had a field trip, but Rhonda couldn't find the permission slip anywhere. She finally wrote a note to the teacher explaining she had lost the form but that it was okay for her child to go on the trip.

Later Rhonda got a call from the teacher saying the note she had sent was scribbled on the back of the "lost" permission slip.
