I am sending this only to my smart friends.

 

TO ALL MY INTELLIGENT FRIENDS:

I am sending this only to my smart friends. 

 


 See if you can figure out what these
words have in common.

  1. Banana
  2. Dresser
  3. Grammar
  4. Potato
  5. Revive
  6. Uneven
  7. Assess

Are you peeking or have you already given up? Give it another try....
Look at each word carefully. You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer. This is so cool.....

Answer: No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters....



Answer: In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Did you figure it out? No? Then send to more people and stump them as well. Then, you'll feel better too.

My thought for the week

 

 

 

 

https://mail.google.com/mail/h/1wmomxmz4rxuh/?view=att&th=126d1c0e139493f6&attid=0.1&disp=emb&realattid=0.1&zw

 

1.    The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"

2.   To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Barbara. Be honest. What do you make?"

 

3.   Barbara, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, and then began...)

3.1.           "Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

3.2.      I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

3.3.     I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents CAN'T make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

 

4.   You want to know what I make. (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

4.1.          I make kids wonder

4.2.     I make them question.

4.3.     I make them apologize and mean it.

4.4.     I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

4.5.     I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn't everything. I make them read, read, read.

4.6.     I make them show all their work in math. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

4.7.     I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

4.8.     I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

4.9.     Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life. (Barbara paused one last time and then continued.)

 

5.   Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make.

5.1.          I MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

 

6.    What do you make Mr CEO?

 

6.1.         His jaw dropped, he went silent.

7.     THE FINAL ANALYSIS

7.1.      People are often unreasonable, self-centered:-Forgive them anyway.

7.2.     If you are honest, people may cheat you, but be honest anyway.

7.3.     What you spend years to build, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway.

7.4.     The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

7.5.     You see, in the final analysis it is between you and GOD; it never was between you and them anyway.

 

8.   DON`T TRY TO IMPRESS THE WORLD BY RUNNING-DOWN YOUR COLLEQUES,BUT TRY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIFES,WITHOUT GOSSIP, JEALOUSY AND BITTERNESS

           

(Thank you Sandra Mouton and Henk for forwarding this to us)

Hoover Dam Bypass -Update

 

-

THIS IS AN UPDATE.. NOT A REPEAT


  
THE WIDER VIEW: Taking shape, the new bridge at the Hoover Dam



 

Creeping closer inch by inch, 900 feet above the mighty Colorado River, the two sides of
A $160 million bridge at the Hoover Dam slowly take shape.  The bridge will carry a new
Section of US Route 93 past the bottleneck of the old road which can be seen twisting and
Winding around and across the dam itself.
 
When complete, it will provide a new link between the states of Nevada and Arizona .
In an incredible feat of engineering, the road will be supported on the two massive
Concrete arches which jut out of the rock face.
 
The arches are made up of 53 individual sections each 24 feet long which have been
Cast on-site and are being lifted into place using an improvised high-wire crane strung
Between temporary steel pylons.
 
The arches will eventually measure more than 1,000 feet across.
At the moment, the structure looks like a traditional suspension bridge. 
But once the arches are complete, the suspending cables on each side will be removed.
Extra vertical columns will then be installed on the arches to carry the road.
The bridge has become known as the Hoover Dam bypass, although it is officially called
The Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, after a former governor of Nevada
And an American Football player from Arizona who joined the US Army and was killed
In Afghanistan.
Work on the bridge started in 2005 and should finish next year. An estimated 17,000
Cars and trucks will cross it every day.
 
The dam was started in 1931 and used enough concrete to build a road from New York
To San Francisco . The stretch of water it created, Lake Mead , is 110 miles long and
Took six years to fill.  The original road was opened at the same time as the famous dam in 1936.
 
 An extra note: The top of the white band of rock in Lake Mead is the old waterline prior
To the drought and development in the Las Vegas area. It is over 100 feet above the
Current water level.

 





Pretty Awesome......

A Summer Day

 

 A Summer Day

 

What a wonderful day today is

It's so warm and breezy and bright

We sit out here enjoying nature's sounds

And watch a young boy fly a kite.

 

It's so relaxing and peaceful right now

We've managed to completely unwind

We won't let what's waiting for us Monday

To ever enter our minds.

 

Days like this are far too few

The summer disappears so fast

So get out and enjoy these days while you can

Because unfortunately, they won't last.

 

Go ride a bike or take a walk

Or even fly a kite

Don't let these days pass you by

They quickly will leave your sight.

 

And then it will happen before you know it

The summer days will turn into years

You'll reflect on the days that you have missed

The sounds of summer you will no longer hear.

 

So go out and enjoy these beautiful days

Time approaches very fast

Enjoy the warmth and the sunshine

You'll have no regrets of a life that has passed.

U-Haul (furniture moveing company) is the world's largest advertiser in the Yellow Pages.

 

U-Haul is the world's largest advertiser in the Yellow Pages.

 

Let Your Fingers Do The Walking...

 

The Yellow Pages, that time-saving categorization of commercial establishments and services, was just a mistake. In 1883, a printer who was doing a run of phone books, ran out of his regular white paper, and finished off the order with yellow paper. Although it was just your regular phone listings, the idea stuck, and by 1886, Ruben Donnelly had produced the first Yellow Pages directory, listing professions, business, services, and other commercial establishments, by the alphabet.

 

Today, independent studies show that 7 out of 10 adults in the U.S. and Canada, use Yellow Pages on a monthly basis, and of those, half will make a purchase or utilize a service that they have found there. Statistics have also shown that Yellow Pages users will spend 28% more than non-users, on the top 200 categories listed.

 

As a result, advertising in the Yellow Pages has become big business. Approximately $15 billion is made every year, from listings in this section of the phone book. For the top 135 listings, it's estimated that every $1 spent on display ads, reaps an $8 pre-tax profit.

 

The single largest Yellow Pages advertiser in the world, is the U-haul moving company.

FW: Some alternatives to those "out of the office" messages

I don't know about you, but I find those Out-Of-The-Office email Auto-replies so ordinary and tedious. Here are some alternatives:
 
1. Thank you for your email. Your credit card has been charged $5.99 for the first ten words and $1.99 for each additional word in your message.
 
2. Thank you for your message, which has been added to a response queue. You are currently in 352nd place, and can expect to receive a reply in approximately 19 weeks.
 
3. Due to a transporter malfunction, I am now in the 24th century, and I don't know when I'll be back. When my Inbox reaches capacity, messages will be deleted on a FIFO basis.
 
4. The email server is unable to deliver this message. Please restart your computer and try sending again. If that doesn't work, please reimage your entire system, and try sending yet again.
 
5. I am currently not available to reply to your message. This does not mean that I am not receiving your message, it just means that I am not replying to you. Please reply to this email so I will know that you got this message.


 

Dear IRS/SARS,
