Fwd: To a busy friend

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each name.
Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the papers.
That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling. 'Really?' she heard whispered. 'I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!' and, 'I didn't know others liked me so much,' were most of the comments.
No one ever mentioned those papers in class again.. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another. That group of students moved on.
Several years later, one of the students was killed in Vietnam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature.
The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.
As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. 'Were you Mark's math teacher?' he asked. She nodded: 'yes.' Then he said: 'Mark talked about you a lot.'
After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.
'We want to show you something,' his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket 'They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it.'
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.
'Thank you so much for doing that,' Mark's mother said. 'As you can see, Mark treasured it.'All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, 'I still have my list. It's in the top drawer of my desk at home.'
Chuck's wife said, 'Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album.'
'I have mine too,' Marilyn said. 'It's in my diary'
Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. 'I carry this with me at all times,' Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: 'I think we all saved our lists'
That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again. The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day. And we don't know when that one day will be.
And One Way To Accomplish This Is: Forward this message on. If you do not send it, you will have, once again passed up the wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful.
If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
If you're 'too busy' to take those few minutes right now to forward this message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn't do that little thing that would make a difference in your relationships?The more people that you send this to, the better you'll be at reaching out to those you care about.
Remember, you reap what you sow. What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

Fwd: US Weather Bureau Report and background

Begin forwarded message:

READ THIS and think of our Prime Minister, Licky 




The climate sceptics would like this statement.




 US Weather Bureau Report 

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen,Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.


 I'm sorry, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post.  Check the full article at:

Fwd: it's a-comin'

begin forwarded message here...

a comin'... yep... it's definitely a-comin'
Three strangers 
strike up a conversation in the passenger lounge in the Bozeman, Montana airport 
while waiting for their respective flights...
One is an American Indian 
passing through from Lame Deer, another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a 
livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly 
arrived at Montana State University from the Middle East.
Their discussion 
drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab 
is a devout radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The
cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table, tips his 
big sweat-stained hat forward over his face, and lights a cigarette. The wind 
outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but
still no plane comes.
Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and 
softly he speaks, 'At one time here... my people were many... but sadly, now we 
are few.'
The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward. 'Once my 
people were few,' he sneers, 'and now we are many. Why do you suppose that 
The cowboy removes his cigarette from his mouth and from the darkness 
beneath his Stetson says in a smooth drawl... 'I reckon that's 'cause we ain't
played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's a-comin'.'


Pass the Butter

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys.  
When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the
money into the research wanted a payback so they put their  
heads together to figure out what to do with this product to
get their money back.  
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added
the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of
butter.  How do you like it?
They have come out  with some clever new flavourings....    
The difference between margarine and butter?
Read on to the end...gets very interesting!
Both  have the same amount of calories. 
Butter  is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; 
compared to 5 grams for margarine. 
Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women
by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according
to a recent  Harvard  Medical Study. 
Eating butter increases the absorption of
many other nutrients in other foods. 
Butter  has many nutritional benefits where margarine has
a few and only because  they are added! 
Butter  tastes much better than margarine
and it can enhance the flavours of other foods. 
Butter  has been around for centuries where margarine has
been around for less than 100 years . 
And now, for Margarine.. 
Very High in Trans fatty acids. 
Triples risk of coronary heart disease ... 
Increases  total cholesterol and LDL (this
is the bad cholesterol) and  lowers HDL
cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) 
Increases  the risk of cancers up to five times.. 
Lowers quality of breast milk. 
Decreases immune response. 
Decreases  insulin response. 
And  here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART
Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being 
PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients withPAINT 
These facts alone were enough to have me
avoiding margarine for life  and anything else that is
hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is  added,  changing the
molecular structure of the  substance).  
You  can try this yourself: 
Purchase  a tub of margarine and leave
it open in your garage or shaded  area.  Within a
couple of days you will notice a couple of things: 
*  no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies
will go near it  (that should tell you something) 
*  it does not rot or smell differently because
it has no nutritional value ;
nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny
weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.  Why?
Because it is nearly plastic .
Would you melt your Tupperware and  spread
that  on your toast?   

Chinese Proverb: 
When someone shares something of value with
you and you benefit from it,  you have a  moral
obligation to share it with others.
