~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Hi Folks,

How is it that when you mix water and flour together you get glue and then when you add eggs and sugar to it you get cake ... but where did the glue go to ???

Do you know the answer ?? You know darned well where it went ...
That's what makes the cake stick to your behind and hips ...

Christmas is coming ....~~~ ~~~ ~~

I came across the above video in the Inspireme site and as I am a real softie and can bawl at the drop of a soppy film, programme or even TV advertisement it made me teary... Life is sooo short and it's amazing how something small can mean so much to your children .

Go to ' You Tube Videos ' on your pc then enter - "To a Child LOVE is Spelled T-I-M-E"

The Big Rocks ...

One day, an expert was speaking to a group of business students. To drive home a point, he used an illustration those students will never forget.

As this man stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, "Okay, time for a quiz." Then he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouthed mason jar and set it on a table in front of him. Next he produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar.

When the jar was filled to the top, and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, "Is this jar full?" Everyone in the class said, "Yes."

He replied, "Really?" and reached under the table to pull out a bucket of gravel. He dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks. Then he asked the group once more, "Is the jar full?" By this time the class was onto him. "Probably not," one of them answered. "Good," he replied. He reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand.

He started dumping the sand in, and it went into all the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?" "No," the class shouted. Once again he said, "Good." Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim.

He looked up at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?" One eager beaver raised his hand and said, "The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard, you can always fit some more things into it."

"No," the speaker replied, "that's not the point. The truth this illustration teaches us is, if you don't put the big rocks in first, you'll never get them in at all."

What are the "big rocks" in your life?

A project that YOU want to accomplish? Time with your loved ones? Teaching or mentoring others? Remember to put these BIG ROCKS in first or you'll never get them in at all.
