A Funny Story...

An elderly man feared his wife was getting deaf, so he called her doctor. The doctor suggested a simple test the man could do to give some idea of the scale of the problem: 'Start out about 40ft away from her, then say something and see if she hears you. If not, go to 30ft, then 20ft and son until you get a response.'

That evening the wife is cooking dinner and he's in the living room. He thinks to himself: 'I'm about 40ft away, lets see what happens.' In a normal voice he asks: 'Honey, what's for supper?' No response.

So he moves to the other end of the room, about 30ft away from his wife and repeats: 'Honey, what's for supper?' Still no response.

Next he moves to within 20ft of her and repeats: 'Honey what's for supper?' Again, no response.

So he walks to within 10ft. 'Honey, what's for supper?' Still nothing.

So he walks right up behind her. 'Honey, what's for supper?'

'Damn it, for the fifth time, CHICKEN!'

(Thought this might sound familiar to some of you!)

The Charles Schultz Philosophy

Just so's ya know, this was NOT written by Charles Schultz - snopes.com, but I like the sentiment anyway...
The Charles Schultz Philosophy

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions.

Just read the post straight through, and you'll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

The Charles Schultz Philosophy

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

The Charles Schultz Philosophy

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.


The Charles Schultz Philosophy

The lesson:

The Charles Schultz Philosophy

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.

Phil Kives, the father of the television infomercial, has died – after being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

Kives was 87 and was the founder of the marketing company K-tel International – and a mega-watt energy pitchman for products such as the Veg-o-matic vegetable slicer.

He died in hospital in Winnipeg yesterday.

Kives was born into poverty on a farm near Estevan, Saskatchewan.

He moved to Winnipeg as a young man – where he demonstrated products in a department store – before realizing he could reach more people on television.

He’s credited with developing the first infomercial in 1962: a five-minute feature on a non-stick frying pan.

Many more products followed, including a long list of compilation vinyl records featuring “original songs by original artists.”

His daughter, Samantha Kives, says her father remained active until very recently – and went into the office every day.

Squirrels vs. Church

'Church' Squirrel

There were five country churches in a small Texas town:

The Presbyterian Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church , the Catholic Church and the Jewish Synagogue.

Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.

One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will..

In The Baptist Church the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.

The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

But -- The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution. They baptised the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called a Bris and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.

Take it off! Take it ALL off, TIM!!!!

Makes "Per"-Sense To Me...

A rich sheik dies leaving a fleet of camels to his three sons. The eldest is to receive one-half of the camels; the middle son one-third; and the youngest one-ninth. The mathematics don't work: What's a half of 17? So they call a consultant.

The next day, a man with a suit and briefcase riding a camel comes to the sheik's sons. They explain the arithmetical conundrum. "No problem at all," says the consultant, "Take my camel."

Now with 18 camels, the sums make sense. One-half of the camels, nine, go to the eldest son; one-third, or six, to the middle son; and one-ninth, two camels to the youngest.. But wait... nine plus six plus two makes only 17 camels. What about the 18th?

"That one's mine." says the consultant, and rides away.
