The Brick.



The Brick!!!
PLEASE
 
Read It.





Read this today and
don't delete it
 even if
you are too busy! You will
see..





THE
BRICK





A young and successful
executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,
going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was
watching for kids darting out from between parked
cars and slowed down
 when he thought he saw
something.





As his car passed, no children appeared.
Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to
the spot where the brick had been thrown.





The angry
driver then jumped out of the
car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up
against
 a parked car shouting,





'What was that all about and who are you? Just what
the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that
brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why
did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.
'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't
know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the
brick because no one else would stop....' With tears
dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth
pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my
brother,' he said, 'He rolled off the curb and fell
out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him
up.'





Now sobbing, the boy
asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help
me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and
he's too heavy for me.'





Moved beyond words,
the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the
handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took
out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything
was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless
you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too
shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy
push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk
toward their home.





It was a long, slow
walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair
the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life
so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to
get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and
speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have
time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's
our choice to listen or
not.





Thought for the
Day:


If God had a
refrigerator, your picture would be on
it.





If He had a wallet,
your photo would be in
it.





He sends you flowers
every spring.





He sends you a sunrise
every morning.
 Face it, friend. - He is crazy about
you!





Send this to every
'beautiful person' you wish to
bless.





God didn't promise
days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun
without rain, but He did promise strength for the
day, comfort for the tears, and light for the
way.





Read this line very
slowly and let it sink
in...





If God brings you to
it, He will bring you through
it.





Thanks Kerry

Men's help line

"Hello, you have reached the 'Men's Help Line. My name is Rusty. How can I help you?"

 "Hi Russ, I really need your advice on a serious problem.

I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me.
You know, just the usual signs: The phone rings and when I answer, the caller hangs up. Plus she goes out with 'the girls' a lot.
I usually try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home, but I always fall asleep.

Anyway, last night about midnight , I woke up and she was not home.
So, I hid in the garage, behind my boat and waited for her. When she came home,
she got out of someone's car, buttoning her blouse, then she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on.

It was at that moment, while crouched behind the boat, that I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard motor mounting bracket."

"Is that something I can weld, or do I need to replace the whole bracket?"

Thanks Randy

Happy Family


An eccentric but tight-knit group that consists of one golden retriever,
One hamster, and eight birds.
31-year-old Luiz Higa of São Paulo, Brazil, tells PetaPixel that his golden retriever,
Bob, is a little less than two years old. In the beginning,
He just had Bob, a cockatiel and a parakeet.
“Since the beginning I put them together to see their
| behavior,” he tells us. “It was nice,
So I decided to have them play together during my free time.”
He then added more birds and a hamster to the group.
Higa’s photos show the group posing, playing, exploring, and resting together.

Best Irish joke

Two men were sitting next to each other at Murphy’s Pub in London. After awhile, one bloke looks at the other and says, ‘I can’t help but think, from listening to you, that you’re from Ireland’
The other bloke responds proudly, ‘Yes, that I am!’
The first one says, ‘So am I! And where about from Ireland might you be?’
The other bloke answers, ‘I’m from Dublin, I am.’
The first one responds, ‘So am I!’
‘Mother Mary and begora. And what street did you live on in Dublin ?’
The other bloke says, ‘A lovely little area it was. I lived on McCleary Street in the old central part of town.’
The first one says, ‘Faith and it’s a small world. So did I! So did I! And to what school would you have been going?’

The other bloke answers, ‘Well now, I went to St. Mary’s, of course.’
The first one gets really excited and says, ‘And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate?’
The other bloke answers, ‘Well, now, let’s see. I graduated in 1964.’
The first one exclaims, ‘The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same place tonight. Can you believe it, I graduated from St. Mary’s in 1964 my own self!’
About this time, Vicky walks up to the bar, sits down and orders a drink.
Brian, the barman, walks over to Vicky, shaking his head and mutters, ‘It’s going to be a long night tonight.’
Vicky asks, ‘Why do you say that, Brian?’
‘The Murphy twins are drunk again.’
Thanks Ivan

Teachers & Cops:

These are actual comments made on students' report cards by teachers in the New York City public school system.
All teachers were reprimanded (but, boy, are these funny!)

  
1. Since my last report, your child has reached rock bottom and has started to dig.

2. I would not allow this student to breed.

3. Your child has delusions of adequacy.

4. Your son is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot. (my favorite...)

5. Your son sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.

6. The student has a 'full six-pack' but lacks the plastic thing to hold it all together.

7. This child has been working with glue too much.

8. When your daughter's IQ reaches 50, she should sell.

9. The gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming..

10. If this student were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week.

11. It's impossible to believe the sperm that created this child beat out
1,000,000 others.

12. The wheel is turning but the hamster is definitely dead.


These are actual comments made by 16 Police Officers. The comments were taken off actual police car videos around the country:


1. "You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through."

2. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."

3. "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."

4. "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

5. "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you."
(LOVE IT)

6. "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"
(MY FAVORITE)

7. "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"

8. "Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

9. "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

10. "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop."

11. "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

12. "In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC." ( National Crime Information Center )

13. "Just how big were those 'two beers' you say you had?"

14. "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."

15. "I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."

AND THE WINNER IS....

16. "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't.. Sign here."

Thanks Randy 

Female Medical Examination


 
During a lady's medical examination, the British doctor says,
 
"Your heart, lungs, pulse and blood pressure are all fine.
 
Now let me see the part that gets you ladies into all kinds of
trouble."
 
The lady starts taking off her undies but is interrupted by the
doctor.
 
"No! No! .... Just stick out your tongue!"

Enough

We are Canadians, not competitors: Enough Province bashing

I’ve been everywhere boy, well not quite, I’ve never been to Saskatchewan or the Territories. I have however traveled to and done business with all the other Provinces. I have also lived in Quebec, where I grew up and worked New Brunswick where we lived and I traveled the Atlantic Provinces and Ontario where I have now lived and worked for 29 years.

In Quebec we bashed Toronto calling the people cold and unfriendly. In New Brunswick we didn’t like “Upper Canadians” while in Ontario it was Quebecers who were the brunt of our disdain.

If anyone was the brunt of a National attack it has to be Newfoundland although all those Newfie jokes we hear….. they started in Newfoundland as “Did you hear about the dumb Canadian”? Yes folks it is us who are the subject of jokes in Newfoundland.

I have traveled across this great country, visited most major cities and had the privilege of doing business with 9 of the 10 Provinces sadly I have not heard jokes about or the bashing of Manitoba, Saskatchewan or Alberta, it seems that the rest of Canada either doesn’t find humour or care enough about these Provinces to poke fun at them.


Of course that is not true, I’m being sarcastic but feel free to bash me, it is a badge of honour.

West vs East Fight Over Energy East Pipeline Leaves Little Room for Adult Debate



In the past week, many conservative politicians in Canada proved that they are not adults, but just infants cleverly disguised as adults. Consider the response to the Montreal mayor Denis Coderre's announcement that he (and 81 other municipal leaders) is not down with the construction of TransCanada's Energy East pipeline through his turf. Instead of simply saying, "Hello Denis, you actually don't have the authority as a municipal government to block the construction of the 1.1 million barrel/day pipeline as the approval process falls under the jurisdiction of a federal regulator," some of the country's most prominent right-wing figures essentially tried to blackmail him under completely imagined pretenses. In short, they've been playing rhetorical Calvinball.
Take Brad Wall, Saskatchewan Premier and rumoured Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate, who tweeted: "I trust Montreal area mayors will politely return their share of $10B in equalization supported by west." Or Derek Fildebrandt, finance critic for Alberta's far-right Wildrose Party, who babbled: "If Quebec has such a big problem with our energy industry, it can give back the $73B in Equalization." This refrain was also reiterated by Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter and "The Rebel" himself, Ezra Levant. But the idea that "the West" pays for Quebec isn't remotely close to reality.

Amazing to watch these guys cut down a monster tree in Seattle.


 
 
What an incredible advertisement for Stihl chainsaws and it didn't cost them a penny.  The young buck doing all the cutting is an expert in his field.....there should be a monument placed where the tree once stood to commemorate his talent and that of the crane operator!!!  Click on the link....a worthwhile watch!
 
The tree had Dutch Elm disease, and had to be taken down.
 
This is fascinating to watch, reportedly the largest hardwood tree in Washington State, certainly in Seattle, taken down in a residential neighborhood.*
 
The guy in the tree  ........ he’s cool.  There is no question that he does not have a dull chain.
 
The lumber from this tree is being dried (3 years) before being made into furniture.

Wednesday's Ride - VW Bug w/ AIRPLANE ENGINE!!!

A real feel good story

Clarenville man shaves 4-decade-old beard, raises $51K

A man in Clarenville shaved his beard Sunday for the first time in nearly 40 years after raising $51,000 for ALS.
Ralph “Boonie” Lethbridge is a staple of the Clarenville area, best known for selling Christmas trees. He’s been growing his facial hair since he was around 16, but decided this year to hack it off after his close friend, Larry Boyd, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. 
“God love him, I’m trying to help him and that was me goal,” said Lethbridge.
The big shave happened on Sunday in the middle of a packed arena during a senior hockey game intermission.
In front of a cheering crowd, Lethbridge said he was pretty excited to be clean shaven for the first time in decades.
“I’m going to look beautiful with two blue eyes and two front teeth, happiest man in the world,” he told CBC before the razor came out.
Boonie's wife, Virginia, had the honour of getting the first cut.
“I’m so happy. I’m proud of him,” she said.

Do Las Vegas Churches accept gambling chips?

THIS MAY COME AS A SURPRISE TO THOSE  OF YOU NOT LIVING IN LAS VEGAS
BUT THERE ARE MORE CATHOLIC CHURCHES  THAN CASINOS.

NOT SURPRISINGLY, SOME WORSHIPERS AT  SUNDAY SERVICES WILL GIVE CASINO CHIPS RATHER THAN CASH WHEN  THE BASKET IS PASSED.

SINCE THEY GET CHIPS FROM MANY  DIFFERENT CASINOS, THE CHURCHES HAVE DEVISED A METHOD TO  COLLECT THE OFFERINGS.

THE CHURCHES SEND ALL THEIR  COLLECTED CHIPS TO A NEARBY FRANCISCAN MONASTERY FOR SORTING  AND THEN THE CHIPS ARE TAKEN TO THE CASINOS OF ORIGIN AND  CASHED IN. 



THIS IS DONE BY THE CHIP  MONKS.
