How Deep Is Your Love?

“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find
it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see
that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

- Khalil Gibran
(06 Jan 1883 - 06 Apr 1931)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

Jokes from Jokes2U
A few years ago a refugee from Laos came to the US in one of the resettlement influxes. He had been an announcer in radio back in Laos, and he wanted to get into the same line of work here. The first thing he did was join AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Announcers). He tried to pursue a job, but of course, he had problems with the English language, being a new resident. In order to keep body and soul together while going to English classes, he took up barbering. Soon, he became a very good barber, giving haircuts, stylings, and shaves. He seemed to be an artist with the straight razor. In fact, the shop where he worked made him specialize in giving shaves. 

Thus, he became known as an AFTRA shave Laotian.

Readers Digest: 'BYE 





From Clean Laughs

On vacation, a man and his wife check into a hotel. The husband wants to have a snack at the restaurant, but his wife is extremely tired so she decides to go on up to their room to rest. 

She lies down on the bed... just then, a train passes by very close to the window and shakes the room so hard she's thrown out of the bed. 

Thinking this must be a freak occurrence, she lies down once more. But just a few minutes later a train again shakes the room so violently, she's pitched to the floor. 

Exasperated, she calls the front desk and asks for the manager who says he'll be right up. 

The manager is skeptical but the wife insists the story is true. 

"Look... lie here on the bed -- you'll be thrown right to the floor!" So he lies down next to the wife. 

Just then the husband walks in. He takes one look at the manager lying in bed with his wife and yells, "Hey! What are you doing in here!?" 

The manager calmly replies, "Would you believe I'm waiting for a train?"

Quote Of Value
"To leave the world a bit better ...
to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Random Fact: Men
While men tend to die earlier than women of natural causes, they also account for 94 percent of all on-the-job fatalities, even though they barely represent 50 percent of the U.S. workforce.

Men are also four times more likely than women to be murdered, and 10 times more likely to commit murder. 


Bonus Facts:

Worldwide, there are approximately 107 baby boys born for every 100 baby girls. Scientists believe the elevated birth rate in favor of boys may be linked to the higher mortality rates of boys in infancy and childhood.

The brains of adult men are about 10 percent larger in total size than the brains of women. Because men generally have a larger stature and more muscle mass than women, their brains require more neurons to control the body.

From Bizarre News  *-- Skinny jeans send Australian woman to hospital with nerve damage --*

ADELAIDE, Australia (UPI) - An Australian doctor has warned against the dangers of so-called "skinny jeans," citing a patient who collapsed after a day of strenuous activity while wearing tight pants. Neurologist Thomas Kimber, of the Royal Adelaide Hospital, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp., on Tuesday that a 35-year-old woman from Adelaide was recently hospitalized after wearing skinny jeans. Kimber said the woman was helping a relative move and spent the day squatting to help them clean. "She noticed that her legs were becoming increasingly uncomfortable as the day went on [but] didn't really think much of it," Kimber said. The woman didn't notice anything was wrong until she fell on the sidewalk and couldn't get up again. "By this time it was dark and quite late at night and she was unable to stand up again, and really was there for some time before she could crawl to the side of the road, hail a cab and bring herself to the Royal Adelaide Hospital," Kimber said. The woman's legs were so swollen that hospital staff had to cut her jeans off of her body. She suffered severe muscle swelling and nerve compression and had to be treated with intravenous fluids. According to Kimber's report of the incident, which was published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, the patient suffered compartment syndrome -- when increased pressure to body parts, particularly the leg or forearm, leads to muscle or nerve damage. "We believe it was the combination of the squatting and tight jeans that caused the problem," Kimber said in the report. The woman was unable to walk for several days but eventually made a full recovery. "The take home message I would like to leave people is if they are going to doing a lot of squatting ... wear something looser, with more elasticity perhaps," he added.

BOY HOWDY! Thanks, Shari!

Recently scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones.

To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, and couldn’t drive.

No further testing is planned.

How Deep is Your Love?

Written by Barry (b. 01 Sept 1946), Robin (b. 22 Dec 1949), and Maurice Gibb (22 Dec 1949 – 12 Jan 2003)

Recorded by The Bee Gees, 1977

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?

How deep is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest, darkest hour
You're my saviour when I fall
And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do

And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?
How deep is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

And you come to me on a summer breeze,
Keep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?

How deep is your love
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
'Cause we're living in a world of fools
Breakin’ us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
