Subj:     The Face
          From: darrellvip on 5/14/2008

 This is the craziest thing I've seen in a long time.  For 
 those of you in the 21st century (e.g. blackberry owners), 
 you'll need to look at this on a pc.  You also have to get 
 out of your seat and walk away from your computer.  People 
 may think you're crazy.  But it's well worth it. 
 When you look at this picture in a closer look you see its 
 Albert Einstein, but if you stand 5 meters distance, it 
 will become Marilyn Monroe.  Click below to view it.

Subj:     Kelly And Riley Get In A Fight
          From: RFSlick on 09/23/1999
      and From: DoctorDebt on 2/18/2004

 "My god! What happened to you?" the bartender asked Kelly
 as he hobbled in on a crutch, one arm in a cast.

 "I got in a tiff with Riley."

 "Riley? He's just a wee fellow," the barkeep said,
 surprised.  "He must have had something in his hand."

 "That he did," Kelly said. "A shovel it was."

 "Dear Lord. Didn't you have anything in your hand?"

 "Aye, that I did -- Mrs. Riley's tit." Kelly said. "And a
 beautiful thing it was, but not much use in a fight."

Subj:     Mothers And Living Through Pain
          From: LABLaughsClean on 5/10/2008 

 As I looked up at my Momís picture hanging above my desk 
 today, I realized that it is now almost 15 years since 
 her death. Thankfully, over the years the pain and sense 
 of loss have eased while the memories of her life and her 
 love have remained. I can still feel her presence as I 
 write this. I am sure that she is not only smiling down 
 on me from her picture on the wall, but from Heaven as 
 well. I only wish she hadnít left us quite so soon. 

 The great teacher, author, and speaker Leo Buscaglia said 
 that he was often asked by his classes why we have to go 
 through pain, suffering, and even death. He stated that 
 he never did find out why, but at some point in his life 
 he stopped asking the questions and started living the 
 answers. "That", he said, "made all the difference." 

 How do we live the answers? I think we do so by choosing 
 love, joy, and oneness with God everyday of our lives. We 
 do so through pain as well as comfort. We do so through 
 suffering as well as happiness. We do so even in the face 
 of death. Some of the wisest, gentlest, kindest, most 
 loving, and most joyous people I have ever known are those 
 who have suffered the most.  The only difference is that 
 they used that suffering to help them to grow into the 
 people God wanted them to be. 

 What good is pain, suffering, and even death if we donít 
 use them to grow more loving, more giving, more compassionate, 
 more peaceful, more joyous, and more at one with God? I think 
 my Mother knew this as she battled cancer in her final years 
 and faced death at such an early age. She blessed us all with 
 her love, her joy, and her gentle laughter right up until her 
 dying day. I only hope and pray that I can live my own answers 
 as beautifully and wonderfully as she lived hers. May all of 
 you lovingly live your own answers then in this life and in 
 the next.

Subj:     Food And Heart Attacks
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day on 10/31/2002
      and From: tom on 5/13/2008

 The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart
 attacks than the British or Americans.

 The French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart
 attacks than the British or Americans.

 The Japanese drink very little red wine  and suffer fewer
 heart attacks than the British or Americans.

 The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also
 suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

 The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages
 and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British
 or Americans.


 Eat and drink what you like.
 Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
