~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. - Katherine Mansfield

A mother was asked by a neighbor, “Do you do any literary work?”

“Oh, yes,” replied the mother, “I’m writing two books.”

“What are their titles?” asked the surprised neighbor.

Replied the mother, “John and Mary. My business is to write on the mind and heart of my children the lessons they will never forget.”

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

More Signs You're Over The Hill

You and your teeth don't sleep together.

Your idea of weight lifting is standing up.

It takes longer to rest than it did to get tired.

Your house catches on fire and the first thing you grab is your Metamucil®.

Taking your morning pills takes longer than eating breakfast.

You meet people half your age and you know they're speaking English but you have no idea what they're saying.

The latest fashion trend involves the same clothes you wore when you were 15.

A passing funeral procession stops to see if you need a lift.

"Recent studies have found that a diet high in soy beans and soy sauce can result in infertility in men. Which that goes to explain China's low population." - Conan O'Brien

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

An angry suitor whose girlfriend turned down his marriage proposal threw the £500 ring in a beggar's bowl.

Tim Pockett could not believe his luck when the engagement ring landed in his collection pot, reports the Daily Mail.

The honest beggar, who plays his penny whistle for loose change in Shrewsbury town centre, handed it over to the police.

At first he thought the ring was worthless but was amazed to later find it was a 2.5-carat diamond solitaire white gold ring.

He said: "I was playing my whistle and I heard a man say: "That will keep you going for a couple of days". When I looked up he'd gone but I later noticed something in my bowl.

"At first I thought it was costume jewelry but when I picked it up it had a hallmark. I was really very surprised. I didn't know what to do with it."

If the ring is not claimed within 28 days, he will be allowed to keep what will be his biggest ever donation.

Police later discovered a man had earlier tried to sell the ring to a second hand jewellery shop but fled in tears when he was turned down because he didn't have proof of ownership.

PC Dave Walton said: "We feel perhaps that this person may have been in a particular state of mind when he dropped it into the bowl. He may now feel differently and think it was a bit rash."
