Most people hate to parallel park. The other day, I saw this
woman trying to get out of a tight parking space. She bumped
the car in front, then backed up and hit the car behind her.
This went on about two minutes.

I walked over to see if I could somehow help. My offer was
declined. She said, "Why have bumpers if you're not going to
use them once in a while?"


Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family ranch.
Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble. In
order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to
purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock.

Upon leaving, the brunette tells her sister, "When I get there, if I
decide to buy the bull, I'll contact you to drive out after me and haul
it home."

The brunette arrives at the man's ranch, inspects the bull, and decides
she wants to buy it. The man tells her that he will sell it for $599, no
less. After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her
sister a telegram to tell her the news. She walks into the telegraph
office, and says, "I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her
that I've bought a bull for our ranch. I need her to hitch the trailer
to our pickup truck and drive out here so we can haul it home."

The telegraph operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then
adds, it will cost 99 cents a word." Well, after paying for the bull,
the brunette realizes that she'll only be able to send her sister one

After a few minutes of thinking, she nods and says, "I want you to send
her the word "comfortable."

The operator shakes his head. "How is she ever going to know that you
want her to hitch the trailer to your pickup truck and drive out here to
haul that bull back to your ranch if you send her just the word

The brunette explains, "My sister's blonde. The word is big. She'll read
it very slowly.... "com-for-da-bul."

½ a second before tsunami

½ a second before tsunami

The last picture! There are people who believe in God, there are others who don't believe,
but we must understand that we are small when nature hits...

This picture was taken on the banks of Sumatra Island (the height of waves was of approx. 32 m = 105 ft).
It was found saved in a digital camera, 1 ½ years after the disaster.

We cannot know for sure,
but very likely the one who took the picture is not alive any more (it was just a matter of seconds).
Today we can see the last image he/ she saw before ending life on Earth!

I have just been told that this was not taken right before a tsunami, but during a sandstorm in Kansas. I thought the houses looked a bit Western for Indonesia. This doesn't change the fact that it is an amazing picture, or that we have an amazing God, who is in control of all of these situations.
