Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front garden, my
neighbours stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.

During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what
she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister some day.

Both of her parents - Socialists - were standing there, so I asked her, "If
you were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."

Her parents beamed with pride! "Wow! What a worthy goal!" I said.

"But you don't have to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that!" I told

"What do you mean?" she replied.

So I told her, "You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds,
and trim my hedge, and I'll pay you £50.
Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless chap hangs
and you can give him the £50 to use toward food and a new house." She
thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye
and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless man come over and do the work, and you
can just pay him the £50?" I said, "Welcome to the Tory Party."

Her parents aren't speaking to me.

A bar called Drummond's (in Mt Vernon, Texas) began construction on an
expansion of their building, hoping to "grow" their business.

In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to block
the bar from expanding - petitions, prayers, etc. About a week before the
bar's grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning struck the bar and burned it to
the ground!

Afterward, the church folks were rather smug - bragging about "the power of
prayer". The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the
church ... "was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building,
through direct actions or indirect means."

Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any
connection to the building's demise.

The judge read carefully through the plaintiff's complaint and the
defendant's reply. He then opened the hearing by saying:

"I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but it appears from the
paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in the
power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

A golfer is in a competitive match with a friend, who is ahead by a couple
of strokes. "Boy, I'd give anything to sink this putt," the golfer mumbles
to himself.

Just then, a stranger walks up beside him and whispers, "Would you be
willing to give up one-fourth of your s*x life?"

Thinking the man is crazy and his answer will be meaningless, the golfer
also feels that maybe this is a good omen so he says, "Sure," and sinks the

Two holes later, he mumbles to himself again, "Gee, I sure would like to
get an eagle on this one."

The same stranger is at his side again and whispers, "Would it be worth
giving up another fourth of your s*x life?"

Shrugging, the golfer replies, "Okay." And he makes an eagle.

On the final hole, the golfer needs another eagle to win. Without waiting
for him to say anything, the stranger quickly moves to his side and says,
"Would winning this match be worth giving up the rest of your s*x life?"

"Definitely," the golfer replies, and he makes the eagle.

As the golfer is walking to the club house, the stranger walks alongside
him and says, "I haven't really been fair with you because you don't know
who I am. I'm the Devil, and from this day forward you will have no s*x

"Nice to meet you," the golfer replies, "I'm Father O'Malley

This is a story about the bond formed between a little girl and a group of
building workers. It's allegedly true and might help to confirm your belief
in the goodness of people and that there is hope for the human

A young family moved into a house next door to an empty plot. One day, a
gang of building workers turned up to start building on the plot.
The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all
the activity going on next door and started talking with the workers.
She hung around and eventually the builders, all with hearts of gold,
more or less adopted the little girl as a sort of project mascot. They
chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had tea and lunch
breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel
They even gave the child her very own hard hat and gloves, which thrilled
her immensely.
At the end of the first week, the smiling builders presented her with a pay
envelope - containing two pounds in 10p coins. The little girl took her
'pay' home to her mother who suggested that they take the money to the bank
the next day to open a savings account.
At the bank, the female cashier was tickled pink listening to the little
girl telling her about her 'work' on the building site and the fact she had
a 'pay packet'.

'You must have worked very hard to earn all this', said the cashier.
The little girl proudly replied, 'Yes, I worked every day with Steve and
Wayne and Mike. We're building a big house.'
'My goodness gracious,' said the cashier, 'And will you be working on the
house again next week?'

The child thought for a moment. Then she said seriously:

'I think so. Provided those w*nkers at Jewsons deliver the f*cking bricks
on time.'

Bird on the Wire began in Greece. When Cohen first arrived in Hydra, there
were no wires on the island, no telephones and no regular electricity. But
soon telephone poles appeared, and then the wires. "I would stare out the
window at these telephone wires and think, how civilization had caught up
with me and I wasn't going to be able to escape after all. I wasn't going
to be able to live this eleventh-century life that I had thought I had
found for myself." So that was the beginning. Then he noticed that the
birds came to the wires. The next line referred to the many evenings Cohen
and friends climbed the endless stairs up from the port of Hydra, drunk and
Often you see: "Three guys with the arms around each other, stumbling up
the stairs and singing these impeccable thirds." He finished the song in a
Hollywood motel on Sunset Boulevard in 1969.

Subject: Secrets of The Olympic Opening Ceremony
 Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here
 Click here Click here Click here Click here Click here

For many, it was the most stunning and captivating opening ceremony to any
Olympic Games.
More than one billion people around the world watched Danny Boyle’s
astonishing and fantastical journey through British history which kicked
off the London 2012 Games. The theatrical tour de force included a series
of dazzling spectacles, from a 40ft oak tree rising serenely from a grassy
mound, to a towering 18metre Voldemort character roaming around the stage.
Even Her Majesty the Queen featured in the show - apparently parachuting
into the Olympic stadium in Stratford, east London. Today we can reveal
some of the secrets and technical achievements - until now have been
shrouded in the strictest secrecy - which it took to produce this
breath-taking performance.

The 40ft model of an oak tree that rose above the grassy mound
Glastonbury Tor) in the opening ceremony was made of steel and fibreglass,
and was lifted by a winch. Inside the mound two spiral staircases allowed
actors to emerge from the ground.

Around it, 79,000 sq ft of real grass and wildflowers adorned a stage set
11.5ft above the stadium floor to allow for the technical crew beneath. In
total, 161,000 sq ft of staging was used over the ceremony - the equivalent
to 12 Olympic-sized swimming pools.   The 18 metre Voldemort was controlled
by wires from the rigging, and puppeteers under the stage using rods. Set
designer Mark Tildesley was in charge of the props team which made it.

The NHS scene used 1,200 volunteers from U.K. hospitals, including 600
nurses. The giant baby was made from fibreglass paper. Switches lit duvets
on the 320 beds.  Thirty-two actresses were dressed as Mary Poppins to
descend on wires attached to rigging which could support 25 tons (the
weight of five elephants). They carried umbrellas with lights attached —
just some of the 2,000 props used over the night, from 737 suppliers. 
High-powered fans inflated the seven fabric chimneys, up to 100ft high,
from trap doors in the stage. Crew kept them upright using wincheswhile
trapeze artists used gears and pulleys to secure them from a mesh of wires
suspended over the stadium. Alongside them, five 32ft long, 9ft-wide steam
engines made of steel, aluminium and wood were assembled by ten crew
members to help represent the Industrial Revolution.

Amber lights lit in sequence created the illusion of a 100 ft molten steel
river, with pyrotechnic smoke and ‘dry ice’ as the steam. The steel
‘flowed’ into a 39 ft diameter trough to form an aluminium ring, which was
raised to join four other rings flying in on cables to form the Olympic
symbol 328ft above the stadium. The 30-second shower of sparks was real,
with actors and crew protected with fireproof costumes.
It was masterminded by Brighton’s Howard Eton Lighting, which has designed
special effects for West End shows.

Despite rumours that David Beckham wasn’t actually driving the speedboat —
named "Max Power" — that sped him down the Thames, organisers insist he was
operating the controls, with other crew members on hand just for safety
(though they admit he didn’t dock the boat himself). Apart from close-up
shots of Becks, the entire trip was filmed live, overseen by Billy Elliot
director Stephen Daldry.  Stuntman Gary Connery dressed as the Queen to
leap from a helicopter 550 ft above the stadium. Mark Sutton, a former
jumped as 007. They had taken off from Stapleford Airfield in Ess*x and
hovered over London for 30 minutes before the jump — then landed outside
the stadium, next to Anish Kapoor’s steel tower.

The "Windrush", representing the ship that brought the first West Indian
immigrants to Britain in 1948, was assembled by hidden crew carrying four
parts made of steel rods covered by fabric made to look like newspapers
from the time. Wires decorated with bunting kept the ship upright, while
actors on stilts played its passengers.  The 75 ‘dove bikes’, 70 ridden by
volunteers found on internet cycling forums, rehear*ed in secrecy. The
fabric wings had tiny LED lights and were operated by aluminium rods
attached to the handlebars which riders pressed to create the flapping
effect. Bob Haro, who created the flying bike scene in ET, choreographed
the sequence.  The spectacular pyrotechnics finale was devised by Kimbolton
Fireworks, founded by Cambridgeshire vicar and former chemistry teacher,
Reverend Ron Lancaster. The firm, now managed by his son-in-law, also
devise the fireworks for the Mayor of London’s annual New Year display. The
pyrotechnics were transported to the stadium by canal barges.

The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

Friends are like  balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them

Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too

so I never lose you.

Send this to all your friends including me and see how many you get back.
Even send it to your balloons that you think have flown away forever.

You may be surprised to see it return.

Send this heart to everybody that has touched your life in a positive way.

Thank you  for being in my life!!!
