    Too funny...Think it would be faster cleaning both in one spot...but, no, I don't think I'd care for this much closeness.!

    The picture in my head of those seats actually occupied is not one I'd care to hold onto. For one, what about overlap? This could be an unpleasant situation in more ways than one!! emoticon

DEATH - WHAT A WONDERFUL WAY TO EXPLAIN IT

Thursday, June 14, 2012

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to
Leave the examination room and said,
'Doctor, I am afraid to die.
Tell me what lies on the other side.'
Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know…'
'You don't know? You're, a Christian man,
and don't know what's on the other side?'
The doctor was holding the handle of the door;
On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining,
And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room
And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.
Turning to the patient, the doctor said,
'Did you notice my dog?
He's never been in this room before.
He didn't know what was inside.
He knew nothing except that his master was here,
And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear.
I know little of what is on the other side of death,
But I do know one thing...
I know my Master is there and that is enough.'

    Just had my Aunt's funeral yesterday. And she said several times lately.."I'm not afraid to die, I'm just afraid for Rita", (her sister in a nursing home) .

So thanks for this timely, for me, reminder.

  I thought this was going to be funny joke, but it turned out to be a great lesson!

There is a special quote that says -- man cannot imagine the joy God has prepared for those who love HIM--

Some interesting statistics.....

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very
interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International
Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years
after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received
treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it
within six months:

U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within
one month:

U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million
people:

U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are
in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

And now for the last statistic:

National Health Insurance?

U.S. NO
England YES
Canada YES

Check this last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked
in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
You know what the private business sector is a real-life business, not a
government job. Here are the percentages.


T. Roosevelt.................... 38%
Taft.................................. 40%
Wilson ........................... 52%
Harding........................... 49%
Coolidge......................... 48%
Hoover............................ 42%
F. Roosevelt................... 50%
Truman........................... 50%
Eisenhower................ .... 57%
Kennedy......................... 30%
Johnson.......................... 47%
Nixon.............................. 53%
Ford................................ 42%
Carter............................. 32%
Reagan........................... 56%
GH Bush......................... 51%
Clinton .......................... 39%
GW Bush........................ 55%
Obama..................... 8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:
only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That's right! Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the
last 19 presidents! And these people are trying to tell our big
corporations how to run their business?

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one
with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk
about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has
never really had one? And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff
and closest advisers? They've spent most of their time in academia,
government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers." They should
have been in an employment line.

    now that was a fun way to sign off and head for work.

I'm guessing there are a few more hemorrhoids out there than that stat but perhaps the January weather kept many home.

thanks for the chuckle.

btw - no natural blonde hair on my head - all were paid for - expect that they are currently natually green from swimming laps this week.

Oh the sacrifices we have to make to keep up with SP Challenges. :)

No one believes seniors . . .

Friday, June 01, 2012

An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Andy had carved "I love you, Sally ."On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money -fifty thousand dollars!Andy said, "We've got to give it back."Sally said, "Finders keepers." She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on their door. "Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?"Sally said, "No".Andy said, "She's lying. She hid it up in the attic.Sally said, "Don't believe him, he's getting senile"The agents turned to Andy and began to question him. One said: "Tell us the story from the beginning."Andy said, "Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday ...."The first police officer turned to his partner and said, "We're outta here!"
