|“How much pressure is
too much pressure to remain true? How much disappointment is too much
disappointment to stand firm? How far is too far to walk with a
discouraged friend, or a struggling spouse, or a troubled child? When
the opposition heats up and the going gets tough, how much of what we
thought was important to us will we defend and how much, in that
inevitable tug and pull of life, will we find it convenient to give

|MAYONNAISE (a "groan"er)
Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's
Mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the
Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment
scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was
to be the next port of call for the great ship after its
stop in New York. This would have been the largest
single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico.
But as we all know, the great ship did not make it to
New York, but hit an iceberg and sank.
The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise,
had been eagerly awaiting its delivery and became
devastated at the loss. As a matter of fact, their
anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day
The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5,
and, of course, is known as...
"Sinko De Mayo."
(Please accept my apology. You know I know better.)

(#16 in a series of 33)":
This guy has a great sense of
humor...love his creativity.
Here is a guy with talent who is having a good time for all to enjoy.
David Zinn is an artist from Michigan. He runs around all day in the
streets of Ann Arbor, with street construction, cracks, etc. on the road
with chalk to create a lot of street fairy tales.
BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS
(Sorry; not theme-related):
is right around the corner, friends! I couldn’t be more excited. This roundup of
15 fall crochet patterns is right up my alley, and makes me very excited about
the coming of my favorite season. I love apple cider, driving through the
mountains looking at leaves, and everything else that goes with autumn.
Unfortunately, summer and fall aren’t that much different here in Central
Florida. Instead of crisp, cool air we’ll be enjoying hot, humid afternoons.
Thankfully, crochet patterns like this can help me feel like it’s fall even when
it’s toasty outside."
RECIPES (Sorry; not particularly theme-related):
Happy Hubby Ground Beef Casserole
- "This is one of those casserole recipes that will stay in the
family for years, and everyone will request it often. Happy Hubby Ground
Beef Casserole is a recipe with ground beef, egg noodles, and three
kinds of cheese! It's flavored with tomato sauce and sour cream, which
make it creamy and delicious. This easy ground beef casserole recipe is
hearty enough to fill up the whole family."
- Hubby's Loaded Ham, Cheese, and Bisquick Bake
another meal with your baked ham leftovers. Loaded Ham and Cheese
Casserole is a hearty simple dish that will satisfy your family's
hunger. Loaded with cheese and broccoli this ham casserole recipe will
be a hit."
|The world’s worst conductor was directing his
band during a practice for an upcoming concert.
Halfway through the first act, he was directing with wild abandon when,
out of his hand, his baton flew and impaled itself in the eye of a flute
player, instantly killing her.
The police arrived shortly after and ruled the case as an accident.
The following week at practice, he again was caught up in the music of
the second act and out of his hand flew the baton, which this time
struck another flute player in the eye, killing her instantly.
The police arrived and after consideration ruled the case an accident.
The following week at practice the conductor again got lost in the
moment of the music of the third act, and out of his hand flew the baton
this time hitting a trumpet player in the eye, killing him instantly.
After the police arrived they could not believe that this third death
was an accident, and the conductor was arrested.
He was tried and sentenced to death in the electric chair.
After strapping him in the chair, the operator threw the switch, but
Again he threw the switch and nothing happened.
The warden was frustrated by this time and demanded that the chair
operator explain what the problem was, to which the chair operator
explained, "Well, everyone knows he's a bad conductor".

For Once in My Life
(c. 1933 - July 23, 2007) and Orlando Murden, 1967
(b. 13 May 1950)
For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I'll be strong
For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore
For once, I can say, this is mine, you can't take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me
