Man Launches RV Into River

Way to funny.
There are just some things an RV won't do.

Born 1925-1970

No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us,
OUR Lives are LIVING PROOF !!!

To Those of    Us  Born 
1925 - 1970  :
At the end of this email is a quote of the month by J ay Leno. If you don't read anything else, please    
read what he said.

Very well stated, Mr.. Leno.
1930s, '40s, '50s, '60s and '70s!! 

First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank
while they were pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then, after that trauma, we were
put to sleep on our tummies
in baby cribs covered
with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets,
and, when we rode our bikes,
we had baseball caps,
not helmets, on our heads.

As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And we weren't overweight.

Because we were always outside playing...that's why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day.
--And, we were OKAY.

We would spend hours building
our go-carts out of scraps
and then ride them down the hill,
only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem..

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendo’s a d X-boxes. There were
no video games, no 150 channels on cable,
no video movies or DVDs,
no surround-sound or CDs,
no cell phones,
no personal computers,
no Internet and no chat rooms.

and we went outside and found  them!

We fell out of trees, got cut,
broke bones and teeth,
and there were no lawsuits
from those accidents..
We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.


    We ate worms, and mud pies
made from dirt, and
the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and 
-although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.

   Little League had tryouts
and not everyone made the team.
Those who didn't had to learn
to deal with disappointment.

Imagine that!!  

  The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!


These generations have produced some of the best    risk-takers,
problem solvers, and inventors ever.

The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

If YOU are one of those born
between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!  


You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives  for our own good.

  While you are at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it ?
The quote of the month
Jay Leno:


"With hurricanes, tornadoes, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?"

Would this be fair for our Congressmen?

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!  Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.  Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

I'm asking you to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on your address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.  In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2.  No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3.  Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately.
All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system  as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make the current contract with members of Congress. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career!!
The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

The Lord is always there

You may have to look really closely. But there is a fish on that there rug. 
Don't ask me how it got there cause I will tell you the Lord put it there.  You see I was making the bed today and then I opened the bedroom curtains and went on with my day. Then tonight I came home and went into the bedroom to put my earrings in my jewelry box. Then went over to close the curtains and when I turned around I looked on the floor beside the bed and found this perfect picture of a ""fish"" on the throw rug beside the bed. All I could say was "I love you too." Because to me it was the Lord telling me he loved me. Because things like this are to me his ways of telling me HI-- I am thinking of you and I love you. 
At least it's my story and I'm sticking to it.

My Valentine to You...

Enjoy this Valentine I picked just for you:

Super Bowl National Anthem

So, with all the kindness I can muster, I give this one piece of advice to the next pop star who is asked to sing the national anthem at a sporting event: save the vocal gymnastics and the physical gyrations for your concerts. Just sing this song the way you were taught to sing it in kindergarten — straight up, no styling. Sing it with the constant awareness that there are soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines watching you from bases and outposts all over the world. Don’t make them cringe with your self-centered ego gratification. Sing it as if you are standing before a row of 86-year-old WWII vets wearing their Purple Hearts, Silver Stars and flag pins on their cardigans and you want them to be proud of you for honoring them and the country they love — not because you want them to think you are a superstar musician.
They could see that from the costumes, the makeup and the entourages.  Sing “The Star Spangled Banner” with the courtesy and humility that tells the audience that it is about America, not you.

Jessica Smith 6 Week Summer Makeover

Yes, I know I have been putting exercise videos on as of late. But these are not only for me-- which I am wanting to lose some weight. But for others I know of that are wanting to also but don't want to spend the money out for the videos that will only end up on a shelf. As they can be expensive. So I have been finding them on the internet and posting them on here. I hope they have been helpful. I know I have found a few that are my favorites and I will work into the harder ones, like Billy Blanks and his Tae Bo videos. I like them but they are a little to fast for me right now. I know with having the videos on this blog I have no more excuses for not exercising. SO neither do YOU now. And if you want something different just make your way over to      Youtube  
and put in any type of exercise you want in the search box and it will show you many to choose from. That is where I have found many of mine. 
Happy Exercising......

RECALL NOTICE The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units 
manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a 
serious defect in the primary and central component 
of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype 
units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the 
reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent

commonly known as SIN, as it is primarily expressed. Some other symptoms include: 1. Loss of direction 2. Foul vocal emissions 3. Amnesia of origin 4. Lack of peace and joy 5. Selfish or violent behavior 6. Depression or confusion in the mental component 7. Fearfulness 8. Idolatry 9. Rebellion The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault 
for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair 
and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. 
The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously 
offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering 
cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee 
required. The number to call for repair in all areas is

warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and 
problems too numerous to list and will result in the 
human unit being permanently impounded. DANGER: The human being units not responding to 
this recall action will need to be scrapped in the 
furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter 
Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention! Sincerely,
God P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others 
of this important recall notice, and you may contact 
the Father any time by "knee-mail."


A woman's daughter had asked the local minister to come and pray with her mother.
When the minister arrived,he found the woman lying in bed with her head propped up on two pillows. An empty chair sat beside her bed. The minister assumed that the woman had been informed of his visit. I guess you were expecting me he said. 'No who are you?' said the mother. The minister told her his name and then remarked I saw the empty chair and I figured you knew I was going to show up. Oh yeah the chair said the bedridden woman. Would you mind closing the door? Puzzled the minister shut the door. I have never told anyone this not even my daughter said the woman. But all of my life I have never known how to pray.
At church I used to hear the pastor talk about prayer,but it went right over my head. I abandoned any attempt at prayer the old woman continued until one day four yrs ago my best friend said to me Prayer is just a simple matter of having a conversation with Jesus. Here is what I suggest. Sit down in a chair place an empty chair in front of you and in faith see Jesus on the chair. It's not spooky because he promised I will be with you always. Then just speak to him in the same way you're doing with me right now. So I tried it and I've liked it so much that I do it a couple of hrs every day. I'm careful though. If my daughter saw me talking to an empty chair she'd either have a nervous breakdown or send me off to the funny farm.
The minister was deeply moved by the story and encouraged the old woman to continue on the journey. Then he prayed with her anointed her with oil and returned to the church. Two nights later the daughter called to tell the minister that her mama had died that afternoon.
Did she die in peace? he asked. Yes when I left the house about two o'clock she called me over to her bedside told me she loved me and kissed me on the cheek. When I got back from the store an hr later I
found her. But there was something strange about her death. Apparently just before Mom died she leaned over and rested her head on the chair beside the bed. What do you make of that? 
The minister wiped a tear from his eye and said I wish we could all go like that.
