Today's thought is: 020714
Attitude is everything!


Today will be what we make it. Regardless of the weather, the kinds of
work to be done, the personalities crossing our paths, we'll feel joy
Attitude is and peace if that is our choice.

Agonizing over circumstances that aren't to our liking or dwelling on
our failure to control other people, whether friends or foes, has robbed
us of the happiness that is always ours to experience. Depression,
anger, fear, and frustration shadowed our steps because we didn't take
control of the only thing that's ever been in our control absolutely -
attitude.

It's so easy to blame others for every wrinkle in our lives. But as we
grow accustomed to the idea of taking full responsibility for how we
think and feel, we'll be empowered. No longer will our sense of self
feel diminished. And, as Abraham Lincoln is credited with saying, we
will be just as happy as we make up our minds to be.

Nobody can mess with my attitude but me!

FROM BAD TO WORSE

Now my wife just left and the well went dry,
and my horse is sick and about to die.
Then my still blew up and the barn burned down,
and the road washed out on the way to town.

Then my dog got rabies and bit the cat,
and they both died soon after that.
Now I lost my specs and my pipe-stem broke,
so I can't even sit and read and smoke.

Then a tree fell on the chicken shed,
and most of the hens got smashed plumb dead.
Then a chimney fire took half of a wall,
and this old shack is about to fall.

Then I caught my heel on an old dead vine,
and sat smack dab on a porcupine.
Then a beaver dam broke and my bridge washed out,
and my watch stopped working and I've got the gout.

And the bank foreclosed so I've lost my place,
and my cow disappeared without a trace.
They cut off my credit at the grocery store,
and I lost my job and a whole lot more.

I must have been hexed by a triple curse,
as things keep going from bad to worse.
And now fate has hit me a last dirty crack,
to top off the worst - my wife's coming back!

A lady went to a pet shop.

"I'd like to buy two yellow canaries," she told the owner.

"We don't have any canaries, but we have these," the owner said, as he
showed the lady some pale green parakeets.

"That's not what I'm looking for," the lady stated.

But the pet store owner refused to give up. He said, "Just think of them as
yellow canaries that aren't quite ripe yet."

The fourth-grade class was studying the
development of the auto industry. The
teacher had emphasized the role played
by Henry Ford, whose assembly lines
decreased production costs.

At the end of the unit, she gave a test
including the question: "What did Henry
Ford invent that made buying a car more
affordable?"

One of the brightest students in the class
wrote: "0% financing."

Working as a secretary at an international airport, my sister had an
office adjacent to where security temporarily holds suspects.

One day security officers were questioning a man when they were
suddenly called away on another emergency. To the horror of my sister
and her colleagues, the man was left alone in the unlocked room. After
a few minutes, the door opened, and he began to walk out. Summoning up
her courage, one of the secretaries barked, "Get back in there, and
don't come out until you're told!"

The man scuttled back inside and slammed the door. When the security
people returned, the woman reported what had happened.

Without a word, an officer walked into the room and released one very
frightened telephone repairman.





The South African version of Sesame Street is to introduce an
HIV-positive puppet.

The character hasn't been named or designed yet.

But the puppet is expected to be a 5-year-old female "monster Muppet"
like Grover or Elmo.

The show's bosses are considering whether to include the new character
in the US version of the show.

Joel Schneider, vice president of Sesame Workshop, which is based in
New York, said the new puppet will make her debut during the autumn.

Speaking at the 14th International AIDS Conference in Barcelona,
Schneider said: "We know that she'll be lively, alert, friendly,
outgoing and HIV-positive. She'll be healthy, not sickly."

The aim is to help "de-stigmatise" the virus among viewers of the
programme, reports the Washington Post.

"We want to show children that it's okay to touch an HIV-positive
person, okay to hug, that a person can still be a constructive part of
the community."

The story about how the character contracted HIV is still under
discussion, but it's likely to involve a story line about a blood
transfusion or transmission through childbirth, Schneider said.

A would-be robber in New Mexico was left rattling a bank's doors when
he turned up 40 minutes after it closed.

Gallup police believe the man was armed with a gun when he turned up
at the city's First Bank.

He was wearing a mask and a long coat with the hood up which officers
say is unusual during the summer.

Staff at the bank spotted the man at the door but contacted police
instead of letting him in. He then ran off.

Lieutenant John Allen says the man may be behind a spate of bank
robberies in the area.

He told Ananova: "He was wearing a mask and trench coat type jacket
which is out of season here."

Now add up the total number of points you received for your

OVER 60 POINTS:

Others see you as someone they should "handle with care" You're
seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others may
admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always
trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS:

Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive
personality; a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions,
though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and
adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who
takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your
company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS:

Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing,practical, and
always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of
attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to
their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and
understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them
out.

31 TO 40 POINTS:

Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They
see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest... Not a
person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's
extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same
loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it
takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that
it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever
broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS:

Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as
very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.
It'd really surprise them if You ever did something impulsively
or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine
everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide
against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your
careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS:

People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive,someone who
needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the
decisions & who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or
anything. They see you as a worrier who always sees problems
that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only those
who know you well know that you aren't.

The Bizarre Death
 
At an annual awards dinner given for Forensic Science,
AAFS president, Dr. Don Harper Mills, astounded his
audience with the legal complications of a bizarre
death. Here is the story:
 
On March 23, 1994 the medical examiner viewed the
body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died from
a shotgun wound to the head. Mr. Opus had jumped
from the top of a ten story building intending to
commit suicide. He left a note to that effect
indicating his despondency.
 
As he fell past the ninth floor his life was
interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through a
window which killed him instantly. Neither the
shooter nor the decedent was aware that a safety net
had been installed just below at the eighth floor
level to protect some building workers and that
Ronald Opus would not have been able to complete his
suicide the way he had planned.
 
"Ordinarily," Dr. Mills continued, "A person who sets
out to commit suicide and ultimately succeeds, even
though the mechanism might not be what he intended,
is still defined as committing suicide."
 
That Mr. Opus was shot on the way to certain death,
but probably would not have been successful because
of the safety net, caused the medical examiner to
feel that he had a homicide on his hands.
 
The room on the ninth floor whence the shotgun blast
emanated was occupied by an elderly man and his wife.
They were arguing vigorously and he was threatening
her with a shotgun. The man was so upset that when
he pulled the trigger he completely missed his wife
and the pellets went through the window striking
Mister Opus.
 
When one intends to kill subject A but kills subject
B in the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of
subject B.
 
When confronted with the murder charge the old man
and his wife were both adamant. They both said they
thought the shotgun was unloaded. The old man said
it was his long standing habit to threaten his wife
with the unloaded shotgun. He had no intention to
murder her. Therefore, the killing of Mr. Opus
appeared to be an accident; that is, the gun had
been accidentally loaded.
 
The continuing investigation turned up a witness who
saw the old couple's son loading the shotgun about
six weeks prior to the fatal accident. It transpired
that the old lady had cut off her son's financial
support and the son, knowing the propensity of his
father to use the shotgun, threateningly loaded the
gun with the  expectation that his father would shoot
his mother.
 
The case now becomes one of murder on the part of the
son for the death of Ronald Opus.
 
Now comes the exquisite twist. Further investigation
revealed that the son was in fact Ronald Opus. He had
become increasingly despondent over the failure of
his attempt to engineer his mother's murder. This led
him to jump off the ten story building on March 23rd,
only to be killed by a shotgun blast passing through
the ninth story window.
 
The son had actually murdered himself so the medical
examiner closed the case as a suicide.





Three cellmates in a Cuban jail compared notes. "I was
jailed for coming to work late." mourned the first. "They
said I was trying to upset the productivity quota."

"Me?  I came to work early." said the second. "They
said this proved I was a Capitalist spy."

"And I am here for always getting to work on time." added
the third. "They said this proved I had an American watch."





Read each sentence slowly and think about it.
 
Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear.

The Preacher ~
 
There was a Preacher whose wife was expecting a baby. The Preacher went to the congregation and asked for a raise. After much consideration and discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck.
 
After five or six children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's pay. There was much yelling and bickering about how much the preacher's additional children were costing the church.
 
Finally, the preacher got up and spoke to the crowd and said... "HAVING CHILDREN IS AN ACT OF GOD!" In the back of the room, a little old man stood up!!!
 
In his frail voice said .... "SNOW AND RAIN ARE ALSO ACTS OF GOD, BUT WHEN WE GET TOO MUCH, WE WEAR RUBBERS."
