A Power Cut / A Teenage Daughter / Funnies ...

Hi Folks,

See if you can figure it out ' NO' peeking!
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
I am sending this only to my smart friends. I could not figure it out and had to look at the answer.
See if you can figure out what these words have in common.
1 Banana
2 Dresser
3 Grammar
4 Potato
5 Revive
6 Uneven
7 Assess
Are you peeking or have you already given up? Give it another try - look at each word carefully. (You'll kick yourself when you discover the answer.) This is really cool...
No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters.
Answer: In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.Did you figure it out? No? Then send it to more people and stump them as well. Then, you'll feel better too.

Talk about finding a silver lining !

My friend Jennifer, lives in New York - not the city, but out in the country in "upstate New York State. Over the winter so far they've had some atrocious weather. After a big power cut, Jennifer was dismayed to find a lot of the food in her freezer had started to defrost.

She couldn't re-freeze it, so once the electricity came back she had to use up as much as she could. Even things she'd forgotten were in there got eaten. Then storms kept her in the house, sometimes for days at a time, so she wasn't driving to the shops much.

Amazingly, at the end of the month she found that all of this "bad stuff " had actually saved her money! So what did she do with the extra cash? She stuck it in an envelope and sent it anonymously to a local charity. They talk about clouds having silver linings. Thanks to Jennifer and her kind heart those storm clouds turned out to have linings of gold.

When Angela's daughter reached those teenage years it sometimes seemed the house had turned into a bit of a battlefield. Worn down by the constant arguments, but determined not to give up on Amy, Angela dug out a postcard-sized piece of card. She wrote a message on it, decorated it and had it laminated. Then, when Amy was out with friends, she left the card on her pillow.

It was never mentioned. The rows continued, but not quite as frequently or intensely as before. Then Angela saw the card she'd made propped up in her teenage daughter's bedroom. The writing on it said, "Sometimes you might be wrong, sometimes I might be wrong, but I love you and that will always be right !"

It seems that those words really had made an impact...
