An Example of What Universities Are Teaching These Days

This is a screen shot of a class that will be offered next semester at the University where I work. I DO NOT want to take this class EVER! Especially the lab!

Just so you know that is the short title...the long title is Analytical Chemistry I. Still don't want to take it, but the feelings of nausea have passed.

Now Name the States

You've tried the countries now get back on more familiar territory with the states.

You will have ten minutes to name the states.

http://www.freewebs.com/freeswf/states.htm

I couldn't think of four of them! Sorry Idaho, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Illinois! So now you should be able to at least name four!

My Brain is Yellow!!

I don't really agree with all of this...I am just happy my brain is considered YELLOW! I love YELLOW! YELLOW YELLOW YELLOW!!!

Your Brain is Yellow
Of all the brain types, yours is the most intellectual.
You crave mental stimulation, and your thoughts tend to very complex.
Your thoughts tend to be innovative and cutting edge, though many people don't understand them.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about science, architecture, and communication.

Why Wedding Rings Should Put On Fourth Finger

Thumb represents parents
Second finger represents brothers & sisters
Center finger represents own self
Fourth finger represents your partner
Last finger represents your children
Really interesting

Why wedding ring should put on the fourth finger?? Please follow the steps below:

Firstly, show your palm, center finger bend and put together back to back Secondly, the rest 4 fingers tips to tips

Game begins....follow the below arrangement,
5 finger but only 1 pair can split.


ring


Try to open your thumb, the thumb represents parents, it can be open because all human does go thru sick and dead. Which are our parents will leave us one day.

Please close up your thumb, then open your second finger, the finger represent brothers and sisters, they do have their own family which is too they will leave us too.

Now close up your second finger, open up your little finger, this represent your children. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got they own living to live.

Nevertheless, close up your little finger, try to open your fourth finger which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprise to find that it cannot be open at all. Because it represent husband and wife, this whole life you will be attach to each other.

Real love will stick together ever and forever. . .

ITALIAN PASTA DIET -- IT REALLY WORKS !!

1.. You walka pasta da bakery.

2.. You walka pasta da candy store.

3.. You walka pasta da Ice Cream shop.

4... You walka pasta da table and fridge.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

Spring and Rain

Spring has sprung! I am so happy, I hate being cold. The little peach tree in our front yard is starting to bloom. The peaches it produces aren't very good, but still it is cool to have a fruit tree.


spring flowers


The grass is already much greener. The rains have come and are going to come. Unfortunatly it doesn't just rain here, it thunderstorms. See it coming in the distance?


storms brewing



We got 5 inches of rain in two days. It has caused the rivers to swell. Not too bad yet, but if we get much more...watch out!


overflow river



And of course my husband just had to stick his feet in the river. He found out very quickly that the water was extremely cold. It may be warming up, but it wasn't that warm yet!


forever the little boy


I love spring!!

Butchering the English Language

I simply wanted to know the reading of my coworkers electronic temperature gauge

So I say to her, "What temperature does it say it says it is?" Pause... "Wait, that didn't sound right."

So I tried again, "What temperature does it say it says it is?" Ok, so that is just how it is going to come out.

She says to me, "Why didn't you just say, 'What is the temperature?'"

Good question! And I wonder why people don't understand me sometimes!

50 Thoughts For Life

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.

17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.

18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over-prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.

38. Read some good books. They cover every human emotion.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

42. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

45. The best is yet to come.

46. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up.

47. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

48. If you don't ask, you don't get.

49. Yield.

50. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Violence in the Streets

My husband came by work to take me to the store to buy a coke for me. What a sweety, right? :) Well, we got our cokes and my husband was paying. I was looking out the front door when all the sudden a guy running with all his might flew around the corner, fell to the pavement, and dropped his cigarettes which went skidding. He looked backed as he got up and the look on his face could have been a smile like he had been joking with some friends and just tripped, but then he jumped up ignoring the dropped cigarettes and ran to the door. These obviously were not his friends, that was not a smile, and this was no joke! In his haste to get in the door he slammed his palm into the glass causing it to break. His hand didn't go through it and it didn't shatter thank goodness seeing how I was very close to it. In fact when that happened I moved very quickly to my husband at the register.


The guy came flying in the door and told the female clerk, "Call 911! Those guys just beat the **** out of me!" There was a trickle of blood that was running from a small puncture wound to his nose. And one side of his face was red. His eyes had a wild look in them. Looking outside again we saw that there were two tall guys out there scowling. Neither of them were little wimpy guys either.


That was the calmest clerk I have ever seen. She got the phone, dialed 911, and even stepped outside to see what the actual address of the store was. Those two guys were still out there at this time, too! My husband was done paying so I told him, "Let's just go." I didn't want to stick around for anything bad to happen. We walked out the door and the guys were still out there, but by the time we got in the car and looked back they were gone.


My husband took me back to work and when he drove back by the cops and ambulance where already there. That couldn't have been more than a few minutes, but all the police and hospital are the same side of town that we were on. I know the town we live in has crime (people live there right?) but I usually don't have a front row seat to the events. I am happy with that and I think that was enough excitement for me for one day!
