WELCOME to WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 21, 2020
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground? Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight Or gazed at the sun into the fading night? You better slow down, Don’t dance so fast Time is short The music won’t last Do you run through each day on the fly When you ask “How are you?” do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed With the next hundred chores running through your head? You’d better slow down, Don’t dance so fast Time is short The music won’t last Ever told your child, We’ll do it tomorrow And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die’ Cause you never had time to call and say “Hi”? Don’t dance so fast Time is short The music won’t last When you run so fast to get somewhere You miss half the fun of getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day, It is like an unopened gift…. Thrown away… Life is not a race. Do take it slower Hear the music before your song is over. Hey I’m just saying. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman!

G u a r a n t e e d t o R o l l Y o u r E y e s! According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the Bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. 😱😳😁😎
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” “I’m gonna tell you something I’ve kept to myself for years. None of you ever knew George Gipp. It was long before your time. But you all know what a tradition he is at Notre Dame. And the last thing he said to me: ‘Rock,’ he said, ‘Sometime when the team is up against it, and the breaks are beating the boys, tell ’em to go out there with all they got and win just one for the Gipper’. ‘I don’t know where I’ll be then, Rock,’ he said, ‘but I’ll know about it and I’ll be happy.'”
Answer: ‘Knute Rockne – All American’ was a film biography of the football coach known for his determination to win, his ability to make his players feel the need to make an extra effort for the sake of the team, and his support of the players not only in their athletic endeavours, but also in their personal lives. The Gipper speech was actually delivered at halftime in a 1928 game against Notre Dame’s traditional (at the time) rivals, Army. Playing at Yankee Stadium on November 10, 1928, the team rallied from a halftime deficit to win the game, 12-6, and Rockne’s speech became a part of the mythology of college football.
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from????
“This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered-We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,

Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?
One night, Emperor Akbar dreamt that he had lost all his teeth, except one.The next morning he invited all the astrologers of his kingdom to interpret this dream. Birbal hadn’t come that morning to the court.
After a long discussion, the astrologers prophesized that all his relatives would die before him.
Akbar was very upset by this interpretation, and so sent away all the astrologers without any reward. Later that day, Birbal entered the court. Akbar related his dream and asked him to interpret it. After thinking for a while, Birbal gave a reply which pleased the emperor, so he rewarded Birbal handsomely. What was Birbal’s reply?
Answer: Birbal was an optimist in addition to being a witty and intelligent courtier. While the astrologers thought only of the negative possibility while interpreting the dream, Birbal actually found a more positive and diplomatic answer. Birbal replied that the Emperor would live a longer & more fulfilled life than any of his relatives.
