Hello Folks ~~ I hope everyone is having a great day, ‘specially my friends
from U.S.A. who are celebrating Independence Day on 4th July. I rang my
cousin Bill for his birthday, and my friend Jeanette’s late huband was also
born on 4th July. Don’t be sad Jen, be glad that he was here for a long time.
Kathy is doing well and should be home in 2 or 3 days. Her kids are all so
capable that they are managing well. Her arm and finger are in plaster which
surprised me, but obviously that way they keep still to heal. The graft was taken
from the same arm, as she said she still has one good arm. She is fine.
As promised I am posting this Bible Quiz which I found very interesting.
I printed it out to find the answers and found 23 out of the 30, which was OK
as I am not a very religious person. I have great faith though.
I came across this on my friend Donna ‘s blog. Thanks Donna.
I wont post the answers until about Friday, as I know I looked at it quite a few
times trying to beat the odds. Oh well…. Hope you enjoy.
There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them? This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket on a flight from Los Angelesto Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much, he passes it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend judges the job of solving his puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That's a fact. Some people however will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or scholar to see some of them at the worst. Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new sales record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they have ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, "The books are all right here in plain view hidden from sight." Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus, as there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found.
I will have to post nice genteel jokes after that !!!
This story comes from the olden days when aircraft cockpits had round dials, plus
flight engineers and navigators.
The crusty old-timer captain is breaking in a new navigatot. He opens his briefcase,
pulls out a .38 and rests it on the instrument panel. “Know what this is for?” he asks
the navigator. “No sir,” replies the newbie.
“I use it on navigators that get us lost,” explains the captain, winking at his first
The navigator then opens HIS briefcase, pulls out a .45 and sets it on his chart table.
“What’s THAT for?” shouts the surprised captain.
“Well, sir,” replies the navigator, “I’ll know we are lost before you will.”
This magician was working on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week
so the magician did the same tricks over and over again.
There was only one problem: the captain’s parrot saw the shows each week and began
to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started
shouting in the middle of the show, “look, it’s not the same hat!” or “Hey, why are all
the cards the ace of spades?” The magician was furious but couldn’t do anything as it
was after all the captain’s parrot.
Then one stormy night the ship sank, drowning almost all who were on board.
The magician luckily found himself on a piece of wood floating in the middle of the sea. The only other
survivor on the same piece of driftwood was the parrot.
They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a
day, then two days, then three days.
Finally on the fourth day, the parrot couldn’t stand it any more.
“OK, good trick. I give up. Now where’s the bloody ship?”

Little Jimmy’s preschool class went on a field trip to the fire station.
The fire-fighter giving the presentation held up a smoke detector and
asked the class, “Does anyone know what this is?”
Little Jimmy’s hand shot up and the fire-fighter called on him.
Little Jimmy replied: “That’s how Mommy knows supper is ready!!”
