Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
The young man ahead of my father at the flower shop was taking an
unusually long time to place his order. When the clerk asked how she
could help, he explained that his girlfriend was turning 19 and he couldn’t
decide whether to give her a dozen roses or 19 roses — one for each
year of her life. The woman put aside her business judgment and advised,
“She may be your 19-year-old girlfriend now, but someday she could be
your 50-year-old wife.” The young man bought a dozen roses. 😳😁😎
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ”
“Take her to sea, Mr. Murdoch. Let’s stretch her legs.”
In this scene Captain Smith (Bernard Hill) is talking to his First Officer Murdoch (Ewan Stewart) on an upper deck of RMS Titanic, after it leaves port on its very first voyage. Captain Smith says line one, while holding a cup of tea, and First Officer Murdoch replies with line two. The movie “Titanic” tells the true-life story of the luxurious White Star ocean liner RMS Titanic, that sank in 1912 on its maiden voyage, through the lives of the two main fictional characters, Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose Bukater (played as a young woman by Kate Winslet and as an old woman by Gloria Stuart). In the 1998 Academy Awards “Titanic” won 11 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Original Song (for “My Heart Will Go On” sung by Celine Dion). Both Gloria Stuart and Kate Winslet were nominated for Oscars, but neither won. The designation “RMS” stands for “Royal Mail Steamship” (also called Steamer or Ship).

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….
As the school year was progressing, a teacher was distressed that more and more of her students were beginning to tease and make fun of one another. She decided to do something about it. When they returned to the classroom after Spring Break, they saw a mirror on the wall with a sign next to it.
When one of the students came to her crying about the names she had been called at recess, she sent the girl to the mirror with these directions: Read that sign quietly to yourself. Repeat it over and over, gradually running the sounds together. Each time, look at yourself in the mirror. Soon you will be smiling.
Sure enough, when the student followed these directions, she came away smiling.
Each time a student would come to the teacher feeling low, she would give them the same directions. Sometimes they would have difficulty, so she would go over to read the sign with them. Eventually, each one would come away smiling.
This is what the sign said: I.Y.Q.Y.Q.R.
Why did this little exercise help her students feel better about themselves?
