    Revelation..

     



    A revelation with an Incredibly Big Message.[IBM]
    In ancient Israel,it came to pass,that a trader by the name of Abraham Com,did take unto himself,a young wife by the name of Dot.And Dot Com was a comely woman,broad of shoulder,and long of leg.Indeed,she was often called Amazon Dot Com.And she said to Abraham,her husband:''Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without even leaving thy tent?''
    And Abraham did look at her as though she was several saddle bags short of a camel load,but simply said:''How,dear?''
    And Dot replied:''I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale,and they will reply telling you who hath the best price'.
    And thesale can be made the drums and delivery made by Uriahs Pony Stable.[UPS]
    Abraham thought long and hard and decided to let Dot have her way with the drums.
    And the drums rang out and were an immediate success.Abraham sold all the goods he had at a top price,without even having to move from his tent.
    To prevent neighbouring countries overhearing what the drums were saying,Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew.It was called Must Send Drum Over Sound...[MSDOS],and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures-Hebrew To The People[HTTP].But this secret did arouse envy.
    A man called Maccabia did secrete himself inside Abrahams drum and began to siphon off some of Abrahams business.But he was soon discovered,arrested and prosecuted for insider trading.
    And the young men did take to Dot Coms trading,as doth the greedy horse fly taketh to camel dung..
    They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites,or NERDS.
    And,lo,the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums,that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer,Brother William of Gates,who bought up every drum maker in the land.And indeed did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates''drum heads and drum sticks.
    And Dot did say:Oh,Abraham,what we have started is being taken over by others''.
    And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel,or e Bay,as it came to be known.
    He said:We need a name that reflects what we are.''
    And Dot replied:Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators. ''YAHOO.said Abraham,and because it was Dots idea,they named it YAHOO Dot Com.
    Abrahams cousin,Joshua,being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid[GEEK] that he was,soon started using Dots drums to locate things around the countryside.
    It soon became known as Gods Own Official Guide to Locating Everything.[GOOGLE]


    And that is how it all began

    HONESTLY...

    Green Things:


    In the line at the store, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day."


    The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment." He was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.


    Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store.

    The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.


    We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in very store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.


    Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw- away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand- me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

    But that old lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.


    Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.


    We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then.


    Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?

    A six year old goes to the hospital with her grandmother to visit her Grandpa.

    When they get to the hospital, she runs ahead of her Grandma and bursts into her Grandpa's room ..."Grandpa, Grandpa," she says excitedly, "As soon as Grandma comes into the room, make a noise like a frog!"


    "What?" said her Grandpa.


    "Make a noise like a frog - because Grandma said that as soon as you croak, we’re all going to Disney Land !!!

    The British Government's policy of socialized medicine has recently been broadened to include a service called "Proxy Fathers". Under the government plan, any married woman who is unable to become pregnant through the first five years of her marriage may request the service of a proxy father — a government employee who attempts to solve the couple's problem by impregnating the wife.

    The Smiths, a young couple, have no children and a proxy father is due to arrive. Leaving for work, Mr. Smith says, "I'm off. The government man should be here soon." Moments later a door-to-door baby photographer rings the bell.

    Mrs. Smith: "Good morning."

    Salesman: "Good morning, madam. You don't know me, but I've come to..."

    Mrs. Smith: (Interrupting) "No need to explain, I've been expecting you."

    Salesman: "Really? Well, good. I've made a specialty of babies, specially twins."

    Mrs. Smith: "That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat."

    Salesman: (Sitting) "Then you don't need to be sold on the idea?"

    Mrs. Smith: "Don't concern yourself. My husband and I both agree this is the right thing to do."

    Salesman: "Well, perhaps we should get down to it?"

    Mrs. Smith: (Blushing) "Just where do we start?"

    Salesman: "Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch and perhaps a couple on the bed. Sometimes the living room floor allows the subject to really spread out."

    Mrs. Smith: "Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it hasn't worked for Harry and me."

    Salesman: "Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one every time, but if we try several locations and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results. In fact, my business card says, 'I aim to please.'"

    Mrs. Smith: "Pardon me, but isn't this a little informal?"

    Salesman: "Madam, in my line of work, a man must be at ease and take his time. I'd love to be in and out in five minutes, but you'd be disappointed with that."

    Mrs. Smith: "Don't I know! Have you had much success at this?"

    Salesman: (Opening his briefcase and finding baby pictures) "Just look at this picture. Believe it or not, it was done on top of a bus in downtown London."

    Mrs. Smith: "Oh, my!!"

    Salesman: "And here are pictures of the prettiest twins in town. They turned out exceptionally well when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with."

    Mrs. Smith: "She was?"

    Salesman: "Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her down to Hyde Park to get the job done right. I've never worked under such impossible conditions. People were crowding around four and five deep, pushing to get a good look."

    Mrs. Smith: "Four and five deep?"

    Salesman: "Yes and for more than three hours, too. The mother got so excited she started bouncing around, squealing and yelling at the crowd. I couldn't concentrate. I'm afraid I had to ask a couple of men to restrain her. By that time darkness was approaching and I began to rush my shots. When the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment I just packed it all in."

    Mrs. Smith: "You mean they actually chewed on your, eh.., equipment?"

    Salesman: "That's right, but it's all in a day's work. I consider my work a pleasure. I've spent years perfecting my patented technique. Now take this baby, I shot this one in the front window of a big department store."

    Mrs. Smith: "I just can't believe it."

    Salesman: "Well, madam, if you're ready, I'll set up my tripod so that we can get to work."

    Mrs. Smith: "TRIPOD?!?"

    Salesman: "Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my equipment on. It's much too heavy and unwieldy for me to hold while I'm shooting. Mrs. Smith?... Mrs. Smith?... My goodness, she's fainted!"

    Us older people need to learn something new every day just to keep the grey matter tuned up.


    Where did "Piss Poor" and a few other common terms come from?

    They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot and then once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor". But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot... they "didn't have a pot to piss in" and were the lowest of the low. The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

    Here are some facts about the 1500s

    Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June. However, since they were starting to smell, brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

    Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"

    Houses had thatched roofs (thick straw) piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying, "It's raining cats and dogs."

    There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how "canopy beds" came into existence.

    The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt Poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a "thresh hold."

    In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme: "Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old".

    Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat."

    Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

    Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the "upper crust."

    Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom; of "holding a wake".

    England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the "graveyard shift.") to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, "saved by the bell" or was "considered a dead ringer".

    $5.37! That's what the kid behind the counter at Tim Horton 's said to me. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a Lifesaver. Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the worst thing anyone has ever said to me. He said, "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount."
    I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the counter in front of me. "Only $4.68" he said cheerfully.
    I stood there stupefied. I am 56, not even 60 yet? A mere child! Senior citizen?
    I took my food and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo . Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me?
    I'll show him, I thought. I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile.
    Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler?
    "Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, eh?" I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind.
    "Leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!"
    I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing.
    That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror.
    Then, a few other objects came into focus. The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten doughnut on the dashboard.
    Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the alien vehicle.
    Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop in my life. That is when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my coffee, only it was nowhere to be found.
    I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was, "What is the world coming to?"
    All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here"? At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Assistance benefits.
    Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake."
    I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized.
    She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time."
    All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40. Yes, I was racing some punk kid in a Prius. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast.
    As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300 speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blankey.
    The good news was I had successfully found my way home.
    Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.
    Notice the larger type? That's for those of us who have trouble reading.

    P.S. Save the earth....... It's the only planet with beer !!!!

    Count your blessings!
    A group of seniors was sitting around talking about all their ailments.

    "My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one.
    "Yes, I know," said another. "My cataracts are so bad; I can't even see my coffee."
    "I couldn't even mark an X at election time, my hands are so crippled," volunteered a third.
    "What? Speak up! What? I can't hear you!"
    "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a fourth, to which several noddedweakly in agreement.
    "My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy!" exclaimed another.
    "I forget where I am, and where I'm going," said another.
    "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.


    The others nodded in agreement.


    "Well, count your Blessings," said a woman cheerfully "thank goodness we can all still drive"

    "Wow!" I thought, "That could've been me".....
