Subject: Resurrection

A pastor was presenting a children's sermon. During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was. Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.
Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand. The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."
It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough from their laughter for the worship service to be continued.

Random Facts: 12/13/12

December 12, 2012, is the century's last sequential date (unless we go to a 13 month calendar really soon). But is there more to this unique arrangement of numbers than just oddity? A much-cited survey conducted by US-based David's Bridal estimated that around 7,500 brides would be getting married in America today — a 1,446 percent increase from 12/12/11. The New York Times wrote that many couples considered it lucky to get married on repetitive dates, with 07-07-07, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 each breaking Las Vegas records. According to Chinese numerology, the number one is a yang number which is ruled by the sun and represents independence and individualism. Two is a yin number which is ruled by the moon and represents symmetry and balance. When placed together, the number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang, balancing the feminine energy of the moon with the masculine energy of the sun.
December is the 12th and last month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars, but…

Random Facts: 10/26/12t

While gold is currently around $1,700 an ounce, it reached an all-time high in 2011 of nearly $1,800 an ounce. Of course, gold has always been valuable not only as a material resource but also as a commodity. Gold is the sixteenth most rare of the chemical elements. Though it is one of the rarest metals, gold was the first to be discovered by man. It took half a year for word to reach the Atlantic coast that gold has been discovered in California. The discovery was made in 1848, but John Augustus Sutter and James Marshall tried to keep it a secret. It wasn't until President Polk, in December 1848, announced the discovery that the gold rush of 1949 began.

Daniel's Gloves I sat, with two friends, in the picture window of a quaint restaurant just offl the corner of the town-square. The food and the company were both especially good that day.
As we talked, my attention was drawn outside, across the street. There, walking into town, was a man who appeared to be carrying all his worldly goods on his back. He was carrying, a well-worn sign that read, 'I will work for food.' My heart sank.
I brought him to the attention of my friends and noticed that others around us had stopped eating to focus on him. Heads moved in a mixture of sadness and disbelief.
We continued with our meal, but his image lingered in my mind. We finished our meal and went our separate ways. I had errands to do and quickly set out to accomplish them. I glanced toward the town square, looking somewhat halfheartedly for the strange visitor. I was fearful, knowing that seeing him again would call some response. I drove through town and saw nothing of him. I made …

Dr. Bob's joke

A motorcycle mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, take a look at this" The cardiologist, a bit surprised walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and said, "So Doc, look at this engine. I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in, and when I finished, it worked just like new. So how is that I make $30,000 a year and you make a million when you and I are doing basically the same work?"
The cardiologist paused, leaned over, and then whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running."

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made.

HINT: (1882-1956), English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems.

In 1950, a young man took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry and exhibited the banjo prowess that allowed him to win a national competition on the instrument. That 17-year-old was future Hee-Haw star Roy Clark.

2012: A Personal Observation from Yours Truly

Last night i was parked in my trailer watching the movie 2012 (mainly cause i was bored) and a horrifying thought crept into my mind. Assuming of course that the mayans weren't so phenomonally full of shit that they could fretalize all of wine country and still have leftovers, let's say that December 21st is in fact the end of the world as we know it. Holy disenfrachised voters Batman. No matter whether Romny wins or Obama squeeks by for a second term, he's still going to be the last president of this great country. Now i didn't vote for his sorry ass back in 2008 but if i did and 12/21/12 truly is game over planet Earth, i'm probably thinking "I want my vote back. I didn't mean to vote for that jack-ass Obama".

HINT: (1899-1973), Irish novelist and short story writer.
RANDOM TIDBITS A single drawing or inscription on a wall, door, or other surface is technically a graffito. Graffiti is the plural form of this word and the one most commonly used today in both the singular and plural contexts.
The cover of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti album depicts two buildings at 96/98 St. Mark's Place in Manhattan. Those visiting the location may be surprised to see five-story buildings because those on the cover only had four stories. The photo was specially cropped to "remove" one of the floors so that the image would fit squarely on the album cover.
Statistics reveal that more than half the graffiti that crops up in major cities is put there by teenage boys.
Since Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury passed away in 1991, "fans" have scrawled thousa…
