And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.

If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams. Les Brown


Don’t ya hate when that happens?

The cowboy lay sprawled across three entire seats in the theater. When the usher came by and noticed this he whispered to the cowboy, “Sorry, sir, but you’re only allowed one seat.” The cowboy groaned but didn’t budge. The usher became more impatient. “Sir, if you don’t get up from there, I’m going to have to call the manager. The cowboy just groaned. The usher marched briskly back up the aisle. In a moment he returned with the manager. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the cowboy, but with no success. Finally, they summoned the police. The cop surveyed the situation briefly then asked, “All right buddy, what’s your name?”

“Sam,” the cowboy moaned.

“Where ya from, Sam?”

With pain in his voice Sam replied……. “The balcony.”

So, Rihanna, you know her, right? Sure you do. Anyway, she had a picture of herself and a cute little monkey. And then this happened:

Police confiscated two lorises from the pair — a 20-year-old man  and a 16-year-old boy — who could face charges of possession of protected  animals. The charge carries a penalty of up to four years in prison and a 40,000  baht ($1,300) fine. Weera said authorities have tried for years to crack  down on the problem of vendors exploiting wildlife, particularly in popular  tourist areas where people pay to pose for pictures with elephants, orangutans  and other animals.

There’s a monkey joke in there somewhere. Maybe in the rest of the story.

So I heard that the USA is the second most fat country in the world. That’s an improvement. Still, we throw out 40% of our food. Crazy. So then, could this work?

Doug Rauch, the former president of Trader Joe’s, is determined to repurpose the perfectly edible produce that ends up in the trash by cooking it, turning it into prepared meals and then selling it deeply discounted in a new type of store.

Eh…the thought of eating something on the verge of “dead” kinda backs me off but that’s probably for everybody which is why he’s gonna sell it cheap. This could really help with people in serious financial problems.
