Family Time

Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

Submitted by Jimbo

A social worker who had recently transferred from the big city to the mountains was touring her new territory. She came upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen. Intrigued, she knocked on the door. "Anybody home?" A child's voice answered, "Yep." "Is your father there?" "Pa? Nope, he left before Ma came in." "Well, is your mother there?" "Nope, Ma left just before I got here." "Are you never together as a family?" "Sure, but not here. This is the outhouse!" Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in Scotland's Loch Ness date back 1,500 years, the modern legend was born when a sighting made local news on May 2, 1933. The Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen "an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface." The story became a media phenomenon.

Generation Gap After I bought my mother a compact-disc player and some CDs, she was excited to discover she no longer needed to rewind or fast-forward tapes or move the needle on her record player. Knowing she was not that technically astute, I called her a few days later to see how she was managing. "Fine. I listened to Shania Twain this morning," she said. "The whole CD?" I asked. "No," she replied, "just one side."

Timely Answer A fellow was walking along a country road when he came upon a farmer working in his field. The man called out to the farmer, "How long will it take me to get to the next town?"

The farmer didn't answer. The guy waited a bit and then started walking again. After the man had gone about a hundred yards, the farmer yelled out, "About 20 minutes." "Thank you. But why didn't you tell me that when I asked you?" "Didn't know how fast you could walk." Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis

Gold Rush In 1859, Peter O'Riley and Patrick McLaughlin discovered the Comstock Lode near Virginia City, Nevada. It was the richest mining discovery in U.S. history. After the discovery was made public, prospectors rushed to the area and scrambled to stake their claims. In 1934 Donald Duck made his screen debut in The Wise Little Hen. Donald and his friend Peter Pig try to avoid work by faking stomach aches until Mrs. Hen teaches them the value of labor. On April 30, 1975, Saigon was captured and renamed Ho Chi Minh City. The last American civilians were airlifted out of Saigon on this date. This marked the final and complete end of the Vietnam War. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis

Even under ideal conditions, people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my all that everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time. The most played song on American radio during the twentieth century was You've Lost That Loving Feeling which was written by Barry Mann, Phil Spector, and Cynthia Weil. Although recorded by different artists, the song is the only one in history to be played over 8 million times on the radio. That amounts to about 45 years if the song was played

She then realized the man wanted to talk to the pastor. Somewhat indignant she said, "Sir if you want to talk to our pastor, you will have to address him properly. You should call him Pastor, or Reverend, or Brother, but you certainly cannot refer to him as the Head Hog at the Trough!" The man on the other end said in a country drawl, "Oh I just wanted to donate $10,000 to the church."

Getting to know someone is not a task--its an art. – Pierce LeBlanc

Raise your hand if you think the vice principal, Mr. Reed did a great job planning this trip...

Out & About in Boston with the 8th Graders from Elm Street School in Mechanic Falls

Great job, Mr. Reed! Let’s go with the rest of them didn’t hear the question...

"Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals." – Jim Rohn

Early in the history of telephones, there were about 300 competing phone companies in America. You could call only the people who did business with the same company as you. In the early 1800s, marijuana was Kentucky's number one crop. It was legal then. People did not smoke it. Marijuana was used for its fiber, called hemp, which was used in ships' sails, rope, twine, paper and canvas.

On A Mission After marrying a promising young physician in 1867, Carry Nation was horrified to see her husband destroy his career and his life after only two years. He drank himself to death. Mrs. Nation was so disgusted with alcohol that she smashed up over 30 drinking establishments. This sixfoot-tall woman would enter a bar and with such frenzy that all the male patrons ran in fright; she broke all the bottles and much of the furniture with rocks, bricks and hatchets. One of the first streetcars in San Francisco was made to look like a horse, so its high speed (8 mph) and noisy characteristics would not frighten horses pulling carriages and carts.

Sham, the second horse in that race, would have won every Derby up to that time (based on his time in the race). The blood of mammals is red, the blood of insects is yellow, and the blood of lobsters is blue.

Bridging the Gap In 1998, the East Bridge over the Store Baelt (Great Belt) was opened to traffic, thus opening up the first leg of a link between Sweden and Denmark. It was the second longest suspension bridge in the world (only Japan's Akashi Kaikyo is longer) until being displaced in 2009 by the Xihoumen Bridge in China. "People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering."

The biggest members of the cat family are Siberian and Bengal tigers, which can reach over 600 pounds.

Russian Fact In 1861, Czar Alexander II of Russia abolished serfdom in Russia, thus freeing the serfs who previously had been bound to the land much like slaves. The emancipation of the serfs was the single most important event in 19th-century Russian history. It was the beginning of the end for the landed aristocracy's monopoly of power.

Canadian Fact On February 15, 1965, Canada inaugurated its new Maple Leaf flag. The National Flag of Canada, also known as the Maple Leaf, and l'Unifolie (French for "the one-leafed"), is a red flag with a white square in its center, featuring a stylized 11pointed red maple leaf.

A man was driving down a road when he ran out of gas. Just at that moment, a bee flew through the window. The bee said " Whats wrong?"

RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL “My Prices Won’t Shock You”

The man responded, "I'm out of gas." The bee told the man to wait right there and flew off. Minutes later, the man watched as a swarm of bees flew right into his gas tank. After a few minutes the bees flew out. "Try it out," said one of the bees. The man got into the car and it started right up. The man was shocked. "Wow! What did you put in it?!" One bee said, "BP!" This is the beginning of a new day. Which you have been given to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good.

Frederic-August Bartholdi sculpted The Statue of Liberty.

A new nurse at a hospital was perplexed by Dr. Wilsonʼs behavior. Off and on throughout her shift Dr. Wilson would run up and down the hallway, yelling, "Tetanus, measles, flu...” Very curious, the nurse asked the head nurse, "Why does Dr. Wilson keep doing that?" "Oh, just ignore him,” the head nurse said. ”He thinks he calls all the shots around here." "In the past decade or so, the women's magazines have taken to running home handyperson articles suggesting that women can learn to fix things just as well as men. These articles are apparently based on the ludicrous assumption that men know how to fix things, when in fact all they know how to do is look at things in a certain squinty-eyed manner, which they learned in Wood Shop; eventually, when enough things in the home are broken, they take a job requiring them to transfer to another home." – Dave Barry

Solar Prominence In 1946, the largest solar prominence ever observed reached a height of 300,000 miles from the surface of the moon. Solar prominence are sheets of luminous gas emanating from the sun's surface; they appear dark against the sun's disk but bright against the dark sky, and occur only in regions of horizontal magnetic fields. Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador, South America, sticks out farther in space than Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth. Because Mount Chimborazo is near the equator (which bulges somewhat), Chimborazo sticks out further. "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit." -- Dawna Markova

Nickel History The U.S. nickel was first authorized by Congress in 1866 to replace the smaller silver half-dime. The first nickel bore a Federal shield on the obverse. This was changed to a head of Liberty in 1883, the Buffalo-Indian design in 1913 and, finally, the Jefferson head in use today.
