Four Husbands

Four HusbandsHusband-Wife-Jokes

The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband’s occupation.

“He’s a funeral director,” she answered.

“Interesting,” the newsman thought.

He then asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years.

After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20′s, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40′s, and a preacher when in her 60′s, and now – in her 80′s – a funeral director.

The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

She paused…Four-Husbands

Smiled and explained,

“I married
one for the money,
two for the show,
three to get ready, and
four to go.”

Time After Time played by Miles Davis

Some things are just classic. Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper

time-after-time-logoThe song’s title, Time After Time, was inspired after Lauper started writing for the song and needed a fake title as a placeholder for the time being. Thus, Lauper was looking in the TV Guide and saw a lot of movie titles, with the 1979 science fiction movie Time After Time being chosen. Although trying to remove the title later, Lauper claimed she couldn’t take it out without the song falling apart.

The spring of 1983, Cyndi Lauper was introduced to American musician Rob Hyman. Hyman and she sat at a piano and started working on “Time After Time” with the inspiration for the song coming after both songwriters were going through similar things with their relationships. Hyman was coming out of a long and hard relationship, and Lauper was having a lot of bumps in her relationship with current boyfriend, David Wolff. One of the first lines Rob wrote was “suitcase of memories”, which according to Cyndi, “strucked her”, claiming it was a “wonderful line”, while other lines came from her life.

  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.
  3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.
  5. On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replacing the place of the pencil with you; always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

  2. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.
  3. You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
  4. The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.
  5. On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties.

By understanding and remembering, let us proceed with our life on this earth having a meaningful purpose in our heart.

Solar FREAKIN Roadways

This is totally cool and the future for saving the planet from environmental contamination.

Years ago, when the phrase “Global Warming” began gaining popularity, the inventors of Solar Roadway Panels started batting around the idea of replacing asphalt and concrete surfaces with solar panels that could be driven upon.  In consideration, they thought about the “black box” on airplanes; they didn’t know what material that black box was made of, but it seemed to be able to protect sensitive electronics from the worst of airline crashes.

So, they imagined making a section of road out of this material and housed solar cells to collect energy, which could pay for the cost of the panel, thereby creating a road that would pay for itself over time.  Then, they asked: what if we added LEDs to “paint” the road lines from beneath, lighting up the road for safer night time driving?  What if we added a heating element in the surface (like the defrosting wire in the rear window of our cars) to prevent snow/ice accumulation in northern climates?  The ideas and possibilities just continued to roll in and the Solar Roadway project was born.

 

 

This could be a VERY GOOD investment in which to participate, as suggested by U.S. Senator Mike Crapo who discusses the Solar Roadways project:

 

 

And this exciting presentation explains how these panels work:

The Philosophy of Liberty

 

philosopjy-of-liberty

When you hear a philosopher or politician, like Ayn Rand or Ron Paul as well as others,  say that they stand for the Philosophy of Liberty, this is what they mean.

The philosophy of liberty is based on self-ownership. This simple but elegant and hard-hitting animation will explain exactly what that means. It’s a great tool anyone can use to educate children and adults about our right to life, liberty, and the property we create – and our responsibility to think, speak and act.
