Holy Days!

One interesting fact about life is that somewhere, sometime one will confront religion.  Some born into one, others will discover and explore religion.  Then a choice is made to accept or reject certain beliefs, God, and or a way of life that religion provides.  One little girl was confronted by an inquisitive classmate one day.  The big question was the Virgin Birth.  They concluded that life itself is an impossibility so a Virgin giving birth was not that big of a deal.  Then the classroom bell rang and it was time for recess.

Wiz Dumb

Every now and then all of us get a shot at thoughts and words of wisdom. 

Child asks his grandfather.  "Will I ever get old?"
Grandfather replies, "Give it time and time will tell."
"Why is there life on this planet and why am I here?"  Just about everyone wants to know.
The only one who has the answer is Fred.  Unfortunately he got on the wrong spaceship and ended up somewhere else.

Power Short Out Age.

Cavemen were mostly in the dark I believe. Fire was a big help. Every now and then the fire would go out and that was their power outage time.

I had a recent power outage. All the power in my neighborhood was out for over 12 hours. I could not understand why it was so dark. Then I realized that at night even though the lights are off. All the LED lights on my clock, phone, TV, VCR and various other electronics did light up my darkened house a bit. I was surprised at how many of these little red lights I had. When they went out, during the power loss, it really made a difference. Sometime it amazes me what I learn just sitting in the dark.

Simply Abby

My sisters Grandperson had some advice for her classmates:

"Being in a homework group in her class, one of the boys didn't do his homework one night and was given a minus 1 point. Abby decided to relay the following warning:
If you keep forgetting to do your homework, you will continue to get points deducted from your grade and before you know it, you will be kept back in school and pretty soon you will be so behind, you will decide to quit school, then you won't be able to find a job and then you won't have any money and you will end up home less, living in the streets and eating out of garbage cans, from which you will catch nasty bacteria and then you will die. Said male student hasn't forgotten his home work since."
