The Most Beautiful Sound A man is driving down the road and his car breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?" The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. A sound unlike anything he's ever heard before. The Sirens that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to his mind. He doesn't sleep that night. He tosses and turns trying to figure out what could possibly be making such a seductive sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk." Distraught, the man is forced to leave. Years later, after never being able to forget that sound, the man goes back to the monastery and pleads for the answer again. The monks reply, "We can't tell you. You're

A man is sitting in the bar, enjoying his drink, and decides to order yet another round. The bartender looks at him, "I'm sorry, sir. You've already had five beers in the last hour. You've had too many already and we can't serve any more drinks to you tonight. Let Didi, one of our designated drivers, give you a ride home." Stumbling and red-eyed, the man gets ups, "Naww! I'll walk home." as he walks toward the door. He leaves out front entrance, goes around to the west entrance and

The history of April Fools Day

The history of April Fools Day   April 1, marks a day of tom foolery and fun, where people often play practical jokes or hoaxes on each other. Commonly called April Fools Day or All Fools Day, it is not considered an official holiday in the United States. Jokes range from the simple, i.e "Your shoes are untied." to the more elaborate.  The news media even gets involved. For instance, a British short film once shown on April Fool's Day was a fairly detailed documentary about "spaghetti farmers" and how they harvest their crop from the spaghetti trees. And let's not forget that in the USA, the IRS socks us with our online tax software deadline on April 15th. Coincidence? You decide! Setting a roommate's alarm clock back an hour is a common gag. Whatever the prank, the trickster usually ends it by yelling to his victim, "April Fool!" The earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1392). Many writers suggest that the restoration of January 1 by

Secrets of Highly Successful Sale Shoppers:

Secrets of Highly Successful Sale Shoppers: The golden rule of smart shoppers is to maximize each purchase. That doesn't always mean getting the best price, but getting the best price for what you really want. Find out more secrets of highly successful sale shoppers. Off-Season Reaps Best Deals The best shoppers know to scour sale racks for short sleeves in November, wool sweaters in April, bathing suits in September. What you give up in selection, you make up for in spectacular savings (75-90% off is very common). Occasionally, you can save by also buying ahead of a season. (Nordstrom's runs sales well before each season starts.) Learn Sale Lingo An experienced shopper can distinguish a promotion from a clearance, a two-for-one from a buy-one-get-one-half-off. She knows that sometimes something as simple as free shipping may add up to big savings, while 50% off on something she doesn't need is a waste of money. Make Friends With Sales Staff A great salesperson is a serious shopper's best friend. Not only will sales people tell you about upcoming sales, some -- especially at boutiques -- may even hold merchandise a day or two to give you time to take advantage of the sale.

 In our world, emergency preparedness is a necessity. However daunting the task may be, there are a few good pointers to prepare for an emergency. Hopefully, you will not have to ever use these pointers, but if an emergency should arise, it will bring peace of mind. 1) Have a plan. Do you know what to do when disaster strikes? If not, NOW is the time to prepare. Learn First Aid, CPR, and Life Saving.  Gain an education and keep employable skills current, especially if potential job loss is on the horizon. A good way to learn and practice emergency preparedness is to go out camping or hiking. Some families will even have a Family Night or Family Home Evening in which family members will learn, discuss, and practice emergency preparedness skills before hitting the trail or loading up the camping trailer. 2) Stockpile necessary goods, where legally allowed.

Jager Aquarium Heaters Aren't What They Used To Be

Jager Aquarium Heaters Aren't What They Used To Be! Sometime ago, I purchased a wholesale lot of 75 watt Eheim Jager 3603 Aquarium heaters on eBay from seller jeanettebarr to replenish my back-up heater supply, thinking they had the same quality as the old, green submersible Jager heaters aquarium veterans loved. People loved them for their accuracy, reliability, durability and German craftmanship. Boy, was I wrong! First of all, these new Jager 3603 aquarium heaters REALLY AREN'T submersible although they look like they are! I didn't find this out until after my package arrived and I was ready the literature accompanying the heaters. I thought it was somewhat okay, because the heaters came with a THREE-YEAR guarantee from the manufacturer. I was a little bit disappointed that the seller, jeanettebarr, had listed them as SUBMERSIBLE and she said she was an authorized dealer of Jager. (Tip: Sellers read all of the accompanying literature on items BEFORE listing them! BUYERS, research the products before placing a bid or hitting the buy-it-now button! You should also do that when shopping on Fanbox's Provide section. ) If she were an AUTHORIZED dealer she would have known that these heaters were not submersible at all! Unfortunately, the seller did not accept returns under ANY circumstances. Later on, while I was contacting Eheim....again...I was able to verify that she is not an authorized dealer by checking  "Find a dealer" list on Eheim's website.   I found out that the Jager heaters just aren't what they used to be. The old green ones were much better quality
