Oh the Joys of April Moods! March left suddenly, in the night; April sends first a foolish knight, a wacky day with changing lights, some rain and clouds, or windy "flights". There might be sun, a gentle breeze, or some grey spots, white from hard freeze; next to bunches of bright flowers, laughing blossom - or cold showers. Gags and jokes around a puddle, may "befuddle" in a muddle, cheering at an awkward stumble, adding to the glorious jumble. And when people start to niggle sheepish pranksters tend to wiggle, while the public loves to giggle and to see the jesters jiggle. M. Happy April Fools' Day to all! More

Good evening to all - how about a joke? A Perfect Pet And Housekeeper A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, “Come on, a dog?” The owner says, “How about a cat?” The man replies, “No way! A cat certainly can’t do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!” The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, “I’ve got it! A centipede!” The man says, “A centipede? I can’t imagine a centipede doing anything, but okay… I’ll try a centipede.” He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, “Clean the kitchen.” Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and… it’s immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away. The counter-tops have been cleaned and the appliances are sparkling. Even the floor was waxed. He’s absolutely amazed. He says to the centipede, “Go clean the living room.” Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed, the furniture cleaned and dusted and the pillows on the sofa plumped. It even watered the plants. The man thinks to himself, “This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!” Next he says to the centipede, “Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper.” The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later…no centipede. 20 minutes later… no centipede. 30 minutes later… no centipede. By this point the man is wondering what’s going on. The centipede should have been back in a couple of minutes. 45 minutes later… still no centipede! He can’t imagine what could have happened. Did the centipede run away? Did it get run over by a car? Where is that centipede? So he goes to the front door, opens it…and there’s the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, “Hey! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What’s the matter?!” The centipede says, “I’m goin’! I’m goin’! I’m just puttin’ on my shoes!” Link: http://www.ba-bamail.com/content.aspx?emailid=18710 More
Stormy winds, rain and snow are sweeping over the country since about two days - reflecting today's tormented times and souls: Torments Long nights awake, short days asleep - winter spreading its flocks of sheep; white linen covers hills and plains - nature rests, whilst "King Blizzard" slains; icy winds cross mysterious veils, waves break ashore with foamy tails. Wild beauty alternates with still - naked trees with clouds of glitter spill; silence damps the roaring powers, golden rays sow crystal flowers - serenity opens the game, another season, a new name, Melt all the coats of ice and snow, break free the rivers' vivid flow! The nature bears her tender green, all spotted with a flowery screen; spring drives away the awful cold, heart'ning again the young and old ... Marianne More
Do you find that when you were younger -20 Degrees Celsius (-4 degrees Fahrenheit) felt not that cold, but when you got older, it does feel colder to you than it did when you where younger?
Furnaces last about 25 years. The furnace died last night, luckily it is not that cold outside, but it is still cool. I hope the furnace repair man can fix the furnace. The question is, what are good brands of furnaces to buy, that last about the same amount of time?
