Do you remember?
The clothes line....a dead give away. Do the kids today even know what a clothes line is?
For all of us who are older, this will bring back the memories.
THE BASIC RULES
1. You had to wash the clothes line before hanging any clothes. Walk the length of each line with a damp cloth around the line.
2. You had to hang the clothes in a certain order and always hang whites with whites and hang them first.
3. You never hung a shirt by the shoulders, always by the tail. What would the neighbors think?
4. Wash day on a Monday...........never hang clothes on the weekend or Sunday for heaven's sake!
5. Hang the sheets and towels on the outside lines so you could hide your 'unmentionables' in the middle.
6. It didn't matter if it was sub zero weather.....clothes would 'freeze dry.'
7. Always gather the clothes pins when taking down dry clothes. Pins left on the line was 'tacky'.
8. If you were efficient, you would line the clothes up so that each item did not need two clothes pins, but shared one of the clothes pins with the next washed item.
9. Clothes off of the line before dinner time, neatly folded in the clothes basket and ready to be ironed.
10. IRONED?????????? Well, that's a whole other subject.
A clothes line was a news forecast
To neighbors passing by.
There were no secrets you could keep
When clothes were hung to dry.
It also was a friendly link
For neighbors always knew
If company had stopped on by
To spend a night or two.
For then you'd see the 'fancy sheets'
&n bsp;And towels upon the line;
You'd see the 'company table cloths'
With intricate design.
The line announced a baby's birth
To folks who lived inside
As brand new infant clothes were hung
So carefully with pride.
The ages of the children could
So readily be known
By watching how the sizes changed
You'd know how much they'd grown.
It also told when illness struck,
As extra sheets were hung;
Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too,
Haphazardly were strung.
It said, 'Gone on vacation now'
When lines hung limp and bare.
It told, 'We're &n bsp;back!' when full lines sagged
With not an inch to spare.
New folks in town were scorned upon
If wash was dingy gray,
As neighbors carefully raised their brows,
And looked the other way..
But clotheslines now are of the past
For dryers make work less.
Now what goes on inside a home
Is anybody's guess.
I really miss that way of life.
It was a friendly sign
When neighbors knew each other best
By what hung on the line!

Do you remember?
I just watched the premier telecast of KC Concepcion's tv anthology. It's a comedy and it's entertaining. She's grown to be a very beautiful lady and her looks is a combination of Gabby and Sharon. When she was young she was a carbon copy of her dad but now, you can tell by her looks that she got some of her facial features from her famous mom too. Watch her tv show at Part 1 HERE and Part 2 HERE

Take a deep breath and look at this one. He is I think a candidate for the Darwin Awards.
I personally think he is a candidate for the funny farm.
Grand Canyon Photographer
This is a case of a photographer photographing another photographer. The following pictures were taken by Hans van de Vorst from the Netherlands at the Grand Canyon, Arizona. The descriptions are his own. The identity of the photographer in the photos is unknown.
I was simply stunned seeing this guy standing on this solitary rock in the Grand Canyon.
The canyon's depth is 900 meters here. The rock on the right is next to the canyon and safe.
Watching this guy on his thong sandals, with a camera and a tripod I asked myself 3 questions:
1. How did he climb that rock?
2. Why not take that sunset picture from that r ock to the right, which is perfectly safe?
3. How will he get back?
After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon he packed his things (having only one hand available) and prepared himself for the jump.
This took about 2 minutes. At that point he had the full attention of the crowd.
This is the point of no return.
After that, he jumped on his thong sandals...
The canyon's depth is 900 meters (3,000 feet) here.
Now you can see that the adjacent rock is higher so he tried to land lower, which is quite steep and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.
We've come to the end of this story. Look carefully at the photographer.
He has a camera, a tripod and also a plastic bag, all on his shoulder or in his left hand.
Only his right hand is available to grab the rock and the weight of his stuff is a problem.
He lands low on his flip flops, both his right hand and right foot slip away...
At that moment I take this shot. He pushes his body against the rock.
He waits for a few seconds, throws his stuff on the rock, climbs and walks away. Presumably to a bathroom to change his shorts.

It's not easy to apply for a loan if you have a bad credit history or no credit history at all. My hubby tried to buy a new car but he was not approved because he doesn't have a credit history. He didn't want to apply for a credit card or used any credit card before. Now, he can't be approved in buying a new car because he has no credit history. I don't know which is better, no credit or bad credit history. I told my hubby to start building up his credit history so he can get a better mortgage. I have to tell him about this site that I came across the internet so he can apply for a loan. They offer different kinds of loan and they have personal finance archives to choose from. This site offers low interest rates which all customers are looking for. My hubby should start building up his credit history so he can get a credit card later on.

I had my hair cut when we went to Alvarado last week. My hair has grown and I needed it to be cut because it's hard to manage a long hair. Besides, I have a falling hair whenever I comb it after taking a shower. I think my hair doesn't like the chlorinated tap water and also the shampoos that I've been using. I went to a hair salon where Shelly had her hair cut but it was closed when we went there at past 3:00 PM. They only charge $10 there. Hubby said we'll just go back the next day but I didn't want to go back the next day. I wanted to have my hair cut that very same day. So hubby drove me to Pro-Cuts hair salon and had my hair cut there. They only charged $11.95, cheaper than the hair salons here in Wichita Falls. I didn't give any tip to the hair stylist because it only took her a few minutes to cut my hair, being thin. I like my hair now, easier to manage.

This story really touched my heart when I first read it. I decided to post it here and share to others. I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl
tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.
A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year - old grandson.
The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered.
The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and
failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.
When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.
The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.
'We must do something about father,' said the son.
'I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.'
So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.
There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner
Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.
When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone.
Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.
The four-year-old watched it all in silence.
One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor.
He asked the child sweetly, 'What are you making?' Just as sweetly, the boy responded,
'Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.
' The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.
The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless.
Then tears started to stream down their cheeks.
Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.
That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table.
For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason,
neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

Give me a sense of humor, Lord, Give me the grace to see a joke,To get some humor out of life, And pass it on to other folk.
Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of Elijah the
Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained how Elijah built the
altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces, and laid it upon the
altar.. And then, Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels
of water and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four times "Now,
said the teacher, "can anyone in the class tell me why the Lord would have
Elijah pour water over the steer on the altar?"
A little girl in the back of the room started waving her hand, "I know! I
know!" she said, "To make the gravy!"
The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot's wife looked back and
turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, "My Mummy
looked back once, while she was driving," he announced triumphantly, "and
she turned into a telephone pole!"
GOOD SAMARITAN .
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good
Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She
described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the
drama. Then, she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the
roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful little
girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up."
DID NOAH FISH?
A Sunday school teacher asked, "David, do you think Noah did a lot of
fishing when he was on the Ark ?"
"No," replied David. "How could he, with just two worms?"
A Sunday school teacher said to her children, " We have been learning how
powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But, there is a higher power.
Can anybody tell me what it is?" One child blurted out, "Aces!"
MOSES &THE RED SEA
Nine-year-old Joey, was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday
school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy
lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt . When he got
to the Red Sea , he had his army build a pontoon bridge and all the people
walked across safely. Then, he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They
sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved."
"Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked.
"Well, no, Mom. But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the
most quoted passages in the Bible; Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month
to learn the verse. Little Rick was excited about the task -- but, he just
couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past
the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23
in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous.
When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The
Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."
There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her
brother in another part of the country "Is there anything breakable in
here?" asked the postal clerk. "Only the Ten Commandments," answered the
AMISH BUMPER STICKER
While driving in Pennsylvania , a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The
owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to
the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient
vehicle: Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in exhaust.''
SUNDAY SCHOOL MESSAGE
Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was
about The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor
stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school
lesson was about. He said "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming."

Wouldn't it be nice to have your private number plates in your car personalized? I've seen some cars with personalized plate numbers and I really think they are cool. I didn't know that there's a website where you can get Private Number Plates for your cars. This is probably the best value private number plates and personalized car registrations on the internet. You can search millions of cherished car number plates, ageless car registrations, prefix type personalized number plates and current style number plates in this site. The good thing is that they do the transfer paperwork for you. They don't just send you a certificate and leave you to do the work yourself. This is a cool site.
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.
The driver, a young man in a Armani suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?"
Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?"
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany.
Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-Tech Miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."
"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"
"You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.
"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"
"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew,to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows...this is a herd of sheep. . . .
Now give me back my dog.

The mother of a 17-year-old girl was concerned that her daughter was having sex.
Worried the girl might become pregnant and adversely impact the family's status, she consulted the family doctor.
The doctor told her that teenagers today were very willful and any attempt to stop the girl would probably result in rebellion. He then told her to arrange for her daughter to be put on birth control and until then, talk to her and give her a box of condoms.
Later that evening, as her daughter was preparing for a date, the woman told her about the situation and handed her a box of condoms.
The girl burst out laughing and reached over to hug her mother saying:
"Oh Mom! You don't have to worry about that! I'm dating Susan!"
A man went to church one day and afterward he stopped to shake the preacher's hand. He said, "Preacher, I'll tell you, that was a damned fine sermon. Damned good!"
The preacher said, "Thank you sir, but I'd rather you didn't use profanity."
The man said, "I was so damned impressed with that sermon I put five thousand dollars in the offering plate!"
The preacher said, "No shit?"
Brenda and Steve took their six-year-old son to the doctor.
With some hesitation, they explained that although their little angel appeared to be in good health, they were concerned about his rather small penis.
After examining the child, the doctor confidently declared, "Just feed him pancakes. That should solve the problem."
The next morning when the boy arrived at breakfast, there was a large stack of warm pancakes in the middle of the table.
"Gee, Mom," he exclaimed. "For me?"
"Just take two," Brenda replied. "The rest are for your father."

The day finally arrived.
Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven.
He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed, and Forrest approaches the gatekeeper.
St. Peter said, "Well, Forrest, it is certainly good to see you.
We have heard a lot about you. I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we have been administering an entrance examination for everyone. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven."
Forrest responds, "It sure is good to be here, St. Peter, sir. But, nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope that the test ain't too hard. Life was a big enough test as it was."
St. Peter continued, "Yes, I know, Forrest, but the test is only three questions.
What two days of the week begin with the letter T?
How many seconds are there in a year?
What is God's first name?"
Forrest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter, who waves him up, and says,
"Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers"
Forrest replied, "Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begins with the letter "T"?
Shucks, that one is easy.
That would be Today and Tomorrow."
The Saint's eyes opened wide and he exclaimed, "Forrest, that is not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I did not specify, so I will give you credit for that answer."
"How about the next one?" asked St. Peter
"How many seconds in a year?
Now that one is harder," replied Forrest, but I thunk and thunk about that, and I guess the only answer can be twelve."
Astounded, St. Peter said, "Twelve? Twelve? Forrest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?"
Forrest replied, "Shucks, there's got to be twelve:
January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd ... "
"Hold it," interrupts St. Peter. "I see where you are going with this, and I see your point, though that was not quite what I had in mind ... but I will have to give you credit for that one, too. Let us go on with the third and final question.
Can you tell me God's first name"?
"Sure," Forrest replied,
"Andy?" exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St Peter.
"Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?"
"Shucks, that was the easiest one of all," Forrest replied.
"I learnt it from the song,
'ANDY WALKS WITH ME,
ANDY TALKS WITH ME,
ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.' "
St.Peter opened the Pearly Gates, and said: "Run Forrest, run!"
Give me a sense of humor, Lord.
Give me the ability to understand a clean joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks
First-time buyers took out loans which were 88 per cent of the property''s value in January, compared to 90 per cent in December and January 2007, according to a new report.
Research from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has also shown that people moving house borrowed 70 per cent of the property''s value which was down from 73 per cent in December and 72 per cent in January 2007.
Michael Coogan, CML director general, said: "The wholesale funding markets remain largely closed and Mortgage funding still remains constrained. This is now having a discernible impact on lending criteria and the ability of first-time buyers to get into the housing market."
He added that the budget tomorrow represents a perfect opportunity for the government to help out first-time buyers by raising the stamp duty threshold.
In related news a UK house builder, Bovis Homes, has called for the Bank of England to cut mortgage rates.
Dear instant noodle lovers,
Make sure you break for at least 3 days after one session of instant noodles before you eat your next packet! Please read the info shared to me by a doctor. My family stopped eating instant noodles more than 5 years ago after hearing about the wax coating the noodles - the wax is not just in the Styrofoam containers but it coats the noodles. This is why the instant noodles do not stick to each other when cooking.
If one were to examine the ordinary Chinese yellow noodles in the market, one will notice that, in their uncooked state the noodles are oily. This layer of oil prevents the noodles from sticking together.
Wanton noodles in their uncooked state have been dusted with flour to prevent them sticking together. When the hawker cooks the noodles, notice he cooks them in hot water and then rinses them in cold water before cooking them in hot water again. This process is repeated several times before the noodles are ready to be served. The cooking and rinsing process prevents noodles from sticking together.
The hawker then "lowers the noodles in oil and sauce to prevent the noodles from sticking if they are to be served dry. Cooking instructions for spaghetti require oil or butter to be added in the water when boiling the spaghetti to prevent the pasta from sticking together. Otherwise, one gets a big clump of spaghetti!
There was an SBC (now TCS) actor some years ago, who at a busy time of his career had no time to cook, resorted to eating instant noodles everyday. He got cancer later on. His doctor told him about the wax in instant noodles. The doctor told him that our body will need up to 2 days to clear the wax. There was also an SIA steward who after moving out from his mother's house into his own house, did not cook but ate instant noodles almost every meal. He had cancer, and has since died from it.
Nowadays the instant noodles are referred as " cancer noodles ".
SATAY LOVERS (BARBECUE)
If you all eat Satay, don't ever forget to eat the cucumber, because eating Satay together with carbon after barbequing can cause cancer.
But we have a cure for that... Cucumber should be eaten after we eat the Satay because Satay has carcinogen (a cancer causing element) but cucumber is anti-carcinogenic. So don't forget to eat the cucumber the next time you have Satay's.
PRAWNS (SUGPO) & VIT C
DO NOT eat shrimp / prawn if you have just taken VITAMIN C pills!! This will cause you to DIE in ARSENIC (As) toxication within HOURS!!
Try this and see whether the pork you bought has worms. There goes with your "Bak Kut Teh" for those who love it. Most men love to eat this so watch out before it's too late. If you pours Coke (yes, the soda) on a slab of pork, wait a little while, you will SEE WORMS crawl out of it. A message from the Health Corporation of Singapore about the bad effects of pork consumption. Pig's bodies contain MANY TOXINS, WORM and LATENT DISEASES.
Although some of these infestations are harboured in other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are far MORE PREDISPOSED to these illnesses than other animals. This could be because PIGS like to SCAVENGE and will eat ANY kind of food, INCLUDING dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta including their own, garbage, and other pigs. INFLUENZA (flu) is one of the MOST famous illnesses which pigs share with humans. This illness is harboured in the LUNGS of pigs during the summer months and tends to affect pigs and human in the cooler months.
Sausage contains bits of pigs' lungs, so those who EAT pork sausage tend to SUFFER MORE during EPIDEMICS of INFLUENZA. Pig meat contains EXCESSIVE quantities of HISTAMINE and IMIDAZOLE compounds, which can lead to ITCHING and INFLAMMATION; GROWTH HORMONE which PROMOTES INFLAMMATION and growth; sulphur containing mesenchymal mucus which leads to SWELLING and deposits of MUCUS in tendons and cartilage, resulting in ATHRITIS, RHEUMATISM, etc.
Sulphur helps cause FIRM human tendons and ligaments to be replaced by the pig's soft mesenchymal tissues, and degeneration of human cartilage.
Eating pork can also lead to GALLSTONES and OBESITY, probably due to its HIGH CHOLESTEROL and SATURATED FAT content. The pig is the MAIN CARRIER of the TAENIE SOLIUM WORM, which is found in its flesh. These tapeworms are found in human intestines with greater frequency in nations where pigs are eaten. This type of tapeworm can pass through the intestines and affect many other organs, and is incurable once it reaches beyond a certain stage. One in six people in the US and Canada has RICHINOSIS from eating trichina worms, which are found in pork.
Many people have NO SYMPTOMS to warm them of this, and when they do, they resemble symptoms of many other illnesses. These worms are NOT noticed during meat inspections.
Cancer-causing substance in shampoos. Go home and check your shampoo. Change before it's too late... Check the ingredients listed on your shampoo bottle, and see they have a substance by the name of Sodium Laureth Sulfate, or simply SLS. This substance is found in most shampoos; manufacturers use it because it produces a lot of foam and it is cheap. BUT the fact is, SLS is used to scrub garage floors, and it is very strong!!! It is also proven that it can cause cancer in the long run, and this is no joke. Shampoos that contains SLS: Vo5, Palmolive, Paul Mitchell, L'Oreal, the new Hemp Shampoo from Body Shop etc. contain this substance.
The first ingredient listed (which means it is the single most prevalent ingredient) in Clairol's Herbal Essences is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Therefore, I called one company, and I told them their product contains a substance that will cause people to have cancer. They said, Yeah we knew about it but there is nothing we can do about it because we need that substance to produce foam. By the way Colgate toothpaste also contains the same substance to produce the "bubbles". They said they are going to send me some information.
Research has shown that in the 1980s, the chance of getting cancer is 1 out of 8000 and now, in the 1990s, the chances of getting cancer is 1 out of 3, which is very serious. Therefore, I hope that you will take this seriously and pass this on to all the people you know, and hopefully, we can stop "giving" ourselves cancer-causing agents.

I got this message from my e-mail. This is very informative and I want to share it here. This give a complete new look to shopping!!! OUCH!!!! Who would have thought it possible!
This is truly very, very graphic but such important information. Please share this with everyone you know, even the men in your family!
I always wash my stuff and this is sure proof that it is a really good idea..
I heard about a flesh-eating bacteria found in new clothing shipped to the USA from garments produced overseas. If it has a bacteria in it we do not have an immunity to it. This is something that is a very real and very serious concern as you will see. Seeing the following photos, I understand the gravity of what they where saying.
Please make it a habit from this point forward to wash your just purchased undergarments before wearing them. Our undergarments are made in different parts of the country, sit in boxes and go through many hands and exchanges before we purchase them for ourselves.
TO ALL , PLEASE WASH ALL BRAS, UNDERWEAR ( ALL CLOTHING ) WHEN YOU BUY BEFORE WEARING THEM. YOU CAN THROW THEM IN THE DRYER FOR A QUICK SPIN TO KILL THE PARASITES TOO !! WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT PARASITE IS IN OUR CLOTHES WHEN WE BUY THEM.
I would also like to add to wash ALL AND ANY NEW CLOTHES THAT YOU BUY. I worked for JCPennies 2 years ago around the holidays, you wouldn't believe how many sick people tried on clothing in just one day. I saw the nastiest, dirtiest and stickiest people try on many articles of clothing that they did not buy. All these items where just put back on the hanger and in the rack for the next person to try on. You would of never known it was tried on before. I can honestly tell you that since my first day working there I don't care how new and clean it smells coming from the store or a gift. IT GOES TO THE WASHER BEFORE I WEAR IT!

Diamonds are forever and they're so attractive and glittery. Four years ago, my hubby gave me a diamond ring for Valentine's Day. I was so happy because I never owned a diamond in my life. That was my ever first diamond jewelry that I owned and it came from my beloved hubby. Unfortunately, three years later, that diamond ring of mine together with my other jewelries which I kept in my jewelry box were stolen by the woman who was coming here in our house to clean. I did not see her in actual but who else would get it? She's the only other person going in and out of our room to clean. When I asked her if she's seen my jewelries, she denied seeing and she said she didn't get it. I felt so bad that I lost my diamond ring and my other jewelries. I've been requesting my hubby to replace my diamond ring and buy me another one. I was looking at the store those diamonds whenever I go there but haven't buy yet. Now, I've seen this site that sells Rings with Diamond online. They have different styles and designs and they are so beautiful. There are engagement, wedding, bridal, anniversary and 3 stone rings. They have also earrings and pendants. You can choose from gold, platinum or silver depending on what you want. Rings are offered at best prices in the Online Diamonds Jewelry stores. Their diamonds have the clarity that you're looking for and color can be changed so that it fits in everybody's budget. They have the lowest price guaranteed and they offer 30 day money back guaranteed. They also offer services like free appraisal and free shipping for your orders. I have to tell my hubby about this store. I have to request him that if he will buy me a diamond ring, he should buy it in this online store.
A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10." Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked." Remember when the funniest jokes were the clean ones? They still are! "A cheerful heart is good medicine" (Prov. 17:22)
This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and suffering that I have seen. It's an explanation other people will understand:
A lady went to a beauty shop to have her hair cut and her nails painted and trimmed. As the lady began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the beautician said: "I don't believe that God exists."
"Why do you say that?" asked Sheryl who has MS.
"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."
Then Sheryl thought for a moment, but didn't respond because she didn't want to start an argument. The beautician just finished her job and the customer left the shop. Just after she left the beauty shop, she saw a woman in the street with long,stringy,
dirty hair and not groomed at all. She looked dirty and unkempt.
Then Sheryl turned back and entered the beauty shop again and she said to the beautician: "You know what? Beauticians do not exist."
"How can you say that?" asked the surprised beautician. "I am here, and I am a beautician. And I just worked on you!"
"No!" Sheryl exclaimed. "Beauticians don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and be very unkempt, like that woman outside."
"Ah, but beauticians DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me."
"Exactly!"- affirmed Sheryl. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist! What happens, is, people don't go to Him and do not look for Him. That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."
When I got hired in my previous jobs, the management required all of us new employees to undergo training before we can start working. That was one of their requirements and we had to do it. It took us a few days to undergo the said training and we learned a lot after that. The trainer presented all the job requirements and the do's and don'ts for us employees to be effective in our jobs. Most employers are using the Learning Management System training tracking software in their training administration for their employees so they have a better and flawless performance in their jobs. If you want to improve your company's training program and make your administrative job easier at the same time with an affordable easy-to-use learning management system, then use this software by conductit.com. You can try it free for 30 days and see it for yourself how it works before you buy it.
Motor homes and trailer houses are everywhere here in Texas. It just fascinates me when I got this e-mail from a friend. The picture depicts the mansions of red necks here in Texas, lol! See it for yourself and have fun!

Most of my friends have kids and they are home schooling them. They don't want to send their kids in a public school because they want to monitor their kids' performance in their studies. Besides, my friends doesn't want their kids to be influenced by other kids with their bad habits or attitudes if they will enroll their kids in the public school. So my friends in the church are just home schooling their kids now that's why their kids are well-disciplined and very studious. I have a friend though that is looking for a Christian school for her two kids. She wants to home school her kids but she needs some study materials to help her home school her kids. I need to tell her about The Southern Baptist Academy online home schooling. I'm sure she would be interested about this site because she wants a good Christian education for her kids. They are devoted Baptist members and I believe that she would give this home schooling site a try. This site offer an Accredited Christian Home School Curriculum and that's what my friend is looking for. So if you want a good Christian education for your kids, enroll them at The Southern Baptist Academy. As the founder and home school advocate Mimi Rothschild said, "Today's public schools are rapidly sprinting towards moral relativism and spiritual confusion. Parents who send their kids to these institutions every day run the risk of having their precious children indoctrinated against the very Christian values they hold dear. Southern Baptist leaders are calling for an alternative. This is that alternative." It is well said and what more can I say? Just give this online school a try and you'll see the result with your kids especially in their moral and spiritual life.
I will seek and find you .
I shall take you to bed and have my way with you
I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.
I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.
I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.
And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.
All my love,
Now, get your mind out of the gutter and go get your flu shot!

It's been a while that my hubby and I had been wanting to buy a new car. Our old van quit running and our truck needs a paint job. Every time we go to church and park our vehicle I noticed that we have the oldest vehicle in the parking lot. Sometimes I feel embarrassed but I can't do anything. Right now our budget doesn't allow us to buy a new car. Hubby and I talked of applying for a Car Loan so we can buy a new car. There are many loan companies out there but we want to find a loan company with lower interest rates. I've found a website that showcases comparisons and recommended car loans available. The site also have the list of banks in their site where you can apply for a bank car loan. We need to apply for a car loan in this site. I'm so excited to have a new car and I can't wait to get it.
It's joke time once again...
A Baptist couple decide that they want to get a dog. As they are walking down the street in town, they notice that a sign in the pet shop is advertising "Christian Puppies." Their interest piqued, they go inside.
"How do you know they're Christian puppies?"
"Watch," says the owner, as he takes one of the dogs and says, "Fetch the Bible." The dog runs over to the desk, and grabs the Bible in its mouth and returns. Putting the Bible on the floor, the owner says, "Find Psalm 23." The dog flips pages with its paw until he reaches the right page, and then stops. Amazed and delighted, the couple purchase the dog and head home.
That evening, they invite some friends over and show them the dog, having him run through his Psalm 23 routine. Impressed, one of the visitors asks "Does he also know 'regular' commands?"
"Gee, we don't know. We didn't ask," replies the husband.
Turning to the dog, he says, "Sit." The dog sits. He says, "Lie down." The dog lies down. He says "Roll over." The dog rolls over.
He says "Heel." The dog runs over to him, jumps up on the sofa, puts both paws on the owner's forehead and bows his head.
"Oh look!" the wife exclaims. "He's PENTECOSTAL!"

A woman arrived at the Gates of Heaven. While she was waiting for Saint
Peter to greet her, she peeked through the gates.
She saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents
and all the other people she had loved and who had died before her.
They saw her and began calling greetings to her "Hello - How are you!
We've been waiting for you! Good to see you."
When Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him, "This is such a
wonderful place! How do I get in?" "You have to spell a word," Saint
Peter told her.
"Which word?" the woman asked.
The woman correctly spelled "Love" and Saint Peter welcomed her into
About a year later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to
watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day.
While the woman was guarding the Gates of Heaven, her husband arrived.
"I'm surprised to see you," the woman said. "How have you been?"
"Oh, I've been doing pretty well since you died," her husband told her.
"I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you
were ill. And then I won the multi-state lottery. I sold the little
house you and I lived in and bought a huge mansion. And my wife and I
traveled all around the world. We were on vacation in Cancun and I
went water skiing today. I fell and hit my head, and here I am. What a
bummer! How do I get in?"
"You have to spell a word," the woman told him.
"Which word?" her husband asked.

Bluebonnets in snow
The bluebonnet is the state flower in Texas. Actually bluebonnets are wild flowers and you can see them all around Texas during spring time. The shape is like that of a bonnet, thus it was called bluebonnet. The bluebonnet is one of the biggest springtime attractions in Texas. Our State Flower is as familiar a symbol of Texas as the Lone Star, Longhorn cattle, cowboy boots, or oil wells. As the oft-quoted historian Jack Maguire puts it, the "bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland, the cherry blossom to Japan, the lily to France, the rose to England and the tulip to Holland."
The blooms first start appearing along roadways and in meadows throughout the hill country in March, reaching their peak in April. There are several varieties of bluebonnet in the state but the Lupinus texensis, found all over Central Texas, is the showiest and most attractive species. From late March through April and into May bluebonnets can be seen along highways and country roads and in parks throughout the area. Texas was the first state in America to plant its roadways with flowers and now everyone can enjoy bluebonnets found along thousands of miles of Texas highways
