Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks, Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.
How many people in the U.S. share your name?

A minister was making a wooden trellis to support a climbing vine. As he was pounding away, he noticed that a little boy was watching him. The youngster didn't say a word, so the preacher kept on working, thinking the lad would leave. But he didn't. Pleased at the thought that his work was being admired, the pastor finally said, "Well, son, trying to pick up some pointers on gardening?" "No," he replied. "I'm just waiting to hear what a preacher says when he hits his thumb with a hammer."

WWI Camp Dodge - Living Statue of Liberty
"On a stifling July day in 1918, 18,000 officers and soldiers posed as Lady Liberty on the parade grounds at Camp Dodge. According to a July 3, 1986, story in the Fort Dodge Messenger, many men fainted-they were dressed in woolen uniforms-as the temperature neared 105 degrees. The photo, taken from the top of a specially constructed tower by a Chicago photography studio, Mole & Thomas. The photo was intended to help promote the sale of war bonds but was never used." (Grover 1987) There are twice as many men in the flame of the torch as in the rest of the design.

When the world moves too fast,
Our not replacing it made it worse,
We have'nt had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe!-
a roof for the rain,
tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you,
those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.”

About a year ago, I made a humorous comment in a work meeting about my personal life (the comment was not true, by the way) but...my co-workers picked up on it and ran with it...and boy, have they ever!!
Thank goodness that I'm easy -going and like to laugh and have fun!
I'm also glad that this is my day off because I can only imagine what they might have planned for me.
I guess the joke is on them!!
Here's a great site where you can read some of the greatest hoaxes of all times.
And have a fun day!!
