AT THE NORTH POLE
This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest
point. And, you also see the sun below the moon. An amazing photo
and not one easily duplicated. The Chinese have a saying that goes
something like this: "When someone shares with you something
of value, you have an obligation to share it with others!" A
scene you will probably never get to see, so take a moment and enjoy
God at work at the North Pole.
READ THIS DESCRIPTION BEFORE WATCHING THE VIDEO!!
Turn your sound on for this. This is really cool. Read this first,
then watch the video.This is almost unbelievable. See how all of
the balls wind up in catcher cones.
This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between
the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School
of Engineering at the University of Iowa . Amazingly, 97% of the
machines Components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation
Equipment of Bancroft , Iowa , yes farm equipment!
It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration,
and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was WELL
worth the effort. It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni
Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the
If you are new to Blues music, or like it but never really understood
the why and wherefore, here are some very fundamental rules:
1. Most Blues begin with: "Woke up this morning..."
2. "I got a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues,
unless you stick something nasty in the next line like, "I got
a good woman, with the meanest face in town."
3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat
it. Then find something that rhymes - sort of: "Got a good woman
with the meanest face in town. Yes, I got a good woman with the meanest
face in town. Got teeth like Margaret Thatcher and she weigh 500
4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck
in a ditch...ain't no way out.
5. Blues cars: Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs and broken-down trucks. Blues
don't travel in Volvos, BMWs, or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most Blues
transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Jet aircraft
and state-sponsored motor pools ain't even in the running. Walkin'
plays a major part in the Blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.
6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die yet.
Adults sing the Blues. In Blues, "adulthood" means being
old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.
7. Blues can take place in New York City but not in Hawaii or anywhere
in Canada. Hard times in Minneapolis or Seattle is probably just
clinical depression. Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis, and
Nawlins are still the best places to have the Blues. You cannot have
the Blues in any place that don't get rain.
8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the Blues. A woman with
male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg 'cause you were skiing
is not the Blues. Breaking your leg 'cause a gator be chomping on
9. You can't have no Blues in an office or a shopping mall. The lighting
is wrong. Go outside to the parking lot or sit by the dumpster.
10. Good places for the Blues (a) highway (b) jailhouse (c) empty
bed (d) bottom of a whiskey glass.
11. Bad places for the Blues (a) Nordstrom's (b) gallery openings
(c)League institutions (d) golf courses.
12. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a suit, 'less
you happen to be an old person, and you slept in it.
13. Do you have the right to sing the Blues? Yes, if: (a) you're
older than dirt (b) you're blind (c) you shot a man in Memphis (d)
you can't be satisfied. No, if: (a) you have all your teeth (b) you
once were blind but now can see (c) the man in Memphis lived (d)
you have a 401K or trust fund.
14. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck. Tiger
Woods cannot sing the Blues. Sonny Liston could have. Ugly white
people also got a leg up on the Blues.
15. If you ask for water and your darlin' gives you gasoline, it's
the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are: (a) cheap wine (b)
whiskey or bourbon (c) muddy water (d) black coffee The following
are NOT Blues beverages: (a)Perrier (b) Chardonnay (c) Snapple (d)
16. If death occurs in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a Blues
death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is another Blues way
to die. So are the electric chair, substance abuse and dying lonely
on a broken-down cot. You can't have a Blues death if you die during
a tennis match or while getting liposuction.
17. Some Blues names for women: (a) Sadie (b) Big Mama (c) Bessie
(d) Fat River Dumpling.
18. Some Blues names for men: (a) Joe (b) Willie (c) Little Willie
(d) Big Willie
19. Persons with names like Michelle, Amber, Jennifer, Debbie, and
Heather can't sing the Blues no matter how many men they shoot in
20. Blues Name Starter Kit: (a) name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple,
Lame, etc.) (b) first name (see above) plus name of fruit (Lemon, Lime,
Peach, etc.) (c) last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore,
etc.) For example: Blind Lemon Jefferson, Pegleg Lime Johnson
or Cripple Peach Fillmore, etc.
21. I don't care how tragic your life is: if you own a computer,
you cannot sing the blues, period. Sorry.
To Recognize A Stroke victim
Remember The 1st Three Letters...S.T.R.
During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she
assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics)
and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They
got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she
appeared a bit shaken up,
Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's
husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been
taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.) She
had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify
the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.
Some don't die. They end up in a
helpless, hopeless condition instead.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within
3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally.
He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed,
and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours,
which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps,
STR . Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately,
the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may
suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize
the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking
three simple qquestions:
S * Ask the individual to SMILE .
T * Ask the person to TALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. . It is sunny out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .
NOTE : Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to
'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes
one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911
immediately !! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. A
cardiologist says if everyone who gets this message sends it
to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
is very important!
here and read about the dangers of the BROWN RECLUSE
SPIDER. My wife was bit by one this past summer and is
still suffering from its effects.
TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without
help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins
to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly
and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each
cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing
sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds
without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is
felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen
into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and
keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps
it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can
get to a hospital. Tell as many other people as possible
about this. It could save their lives!!
National Cemetary on Jeopardy
After hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish - enough
is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic),
German or any other language because of immigration. It was written
by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it
was written! The news broadcasts even gave the translation
-- not even close.
If this offends anyone, be it known this is MY country and if it
is YOUR country, SPEAK UP - And, please pass this along.
I am not against immigration -- just come through like everyone else. Get
a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes,
live by the rules and LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all the other immigrants
have in the past -- GOD BLESS AMERICA!
PART OF THE PROBLEM
Think about this: If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending
someone -- You're part of the problem!!! It is time for
America to speak up! If you agree -- pass this along; if
you don't agree -- delete it!
