A video of a young Chinese girl playing the piano is about to make your day.
The footage may force you to examine the excuses you make
 not to tackle those major challenges in your own life.
"Souvenir D'enfance" by Richard Clayderman is not an easy piece to play.
 The girl plays beautifully, with the sort of lyrical maturity
not often found in youngsters new to their instruments.
Even more impressive, she first sat down at a piano a mere three years ago.
And if that wasn't enough to wow you, she has no fingers on her right hand.
Watch the amazing performance below.

The old native American wanted a loan for $500.
 The banker pulled out the loan application,
“What are you going to do with the money?”
“Take jewellery to city and sell it,” was the response.
“What have you got for collateral?”
“Don’t know collateral.”
“Well that’s something of value that would cover the cost of the loan.
Have you got any vehicles?”
“Yes, 1949 Chevy pickup.”
The banker shook his head, “How about livestock?”
“Yes, I have a horse.”
“How old is it?”
“Don’t know, has no teeth.”
Finally the banker decided to make the $500 loan.
Several weeks later the old man was back in the bank.
 He pulled out a roll of bills, “Here to pay.” he said.
He then handed the banker the money to pay his loan off.
“What are you going to do with the rest of that money?”
“Put in tepee.”
“Why don’t you deposit it in my bank,” he asked.
“Don’t know deposit.”
“You put the money in our bank and we take care of it for you.
 When you want to use it you can withdraw it.”
The old Indian leaned across the desk, “What you got for collateral?”

I have changed my system for labeling homemade freezer meals.
I used to carefully note in large clear letters,
 “Meatloaf” or “Pot Roast” or “Steak and Vegetables or
 “Chicken and Dumplings” or “Beef Pot Pie.”
However, I used to get frustrated when I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner
because he never asked for any of those things.
 So, I decided to stock the freezer with what he really likes.
If you look in my freezer now you’ll see a whole new set of labels.
 You’ll find dinners with neat little tags that say:
 “Whatever,” “Anything,” “I Don’t Know,” “I Don’t Care,” “Something Good,” or “Food.”
 My frustration is now reduced because no matter what my husband replies
 when I ask him what he wants for dinner,
I know that it is there waiting

Dear Tide,
I am writing to say what an excellent product you have.
 I've used it all of my married life,
as my Mom always told me it was the best.
 Now that I am in my fifties I find it even better!
 In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse.
 My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to belittle me about how clumsy I was,
 and generally started becoming a pain in the neck.
One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with his blood on my new white blouse!
 I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach alternative, to my surprise and satisfaction,
 all of the stains came out!
 In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday
told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative
 and then my attorney called and said that I was no longer
considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband.
What a relief!
Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect!
 I thank you, once again, for having a great product.
Well, gotta go, have to write to the Hefty bag people.
Your friend forever,


Only in Asia

Three Day Silence
My wife has not spoken to me in three days.
I think it has something to do with what happened on Sunday night
when she thought she heard a noise downstairs.
She nudged me and whispered, “Wake up, wake up!”
“What’s the matter”? I asked.
“There are burglars in the kitchen.
 I think they’re eating the tuna casserole I made tonight.”
“That’ll teach them!” I replied.


 what can I say!!!!



Wendy the whiskey maker lived in the back hills of Kentucky
 and produced some of the finest whiskey available in the area.
One day, as she transported her product to the black market,
she had truck trouble and had to stop by the side of the road.
A young man named Tommy was passing by and stopped to help her.
 He was unaware of her illegal activities and remained in the dark
throughout the course of the growing friendship which ensued.
 In due course, they even became lovers with him
completely unaware of her activities.
One evening, the government raided her place of business and arrested her.
 Her young lover was with her when she was arrested
and suddenly became aware of her past.
The officers then transported her to the local county jail,
 where she remained overnight.
Tommy came to visit her in the morning and as he left the sheriff asked him:
 "I guess this will change your feelings about her, won't it lad?"
Tommy's response was quick and emphatic.
He turned to the sheriff and simply said:
"She may be only a whiskey maker, but I love her still."


A group of cowboys riding with the sheriff was following a band of outlaws.
 They were not gaining on them at all.
The sheriff asked for suggestions.
 One of the cowboys said,
"We could add a male bovine to our group."
The sheriff nodded and said,
"That's posse bull."

Did you hear about the Arab baker?
Every morning at 6:00 a.m. he’d bow to the yeast.

No need to thank me for this, just buy me a cool one next time you see me.

The Lemon Picker

The woman applying for a job in a lemon orchard seemed
to be far too qualified for the job;
 given her liberal arts degree fromthe Sydney University
 and her jobs as a social worker and school teacher.
The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this:
"Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"
"Well, as a matter of fact, I have!"
"I've been divorced three times, owned 2 Falcons, and I voted for John Howard."

There were two spinster sisters that lived alone on the second floor
 of a frame wooden house on our block and they sometimes
 would display their ice card in the window for 25 lbs.
My uncle, knew they could never scrape together the money to pay their bill
but he always stopped and took all the broken ice pieces off his truck
and carried it up to their place and packed it in their small wooden ice box.
One day, towards the end of summer, after he had packed their box,
 one of the sisters stepped out on the back porch and asked to speak to him.
 She seemed a bit shy and seemed flushed in embarrassment,
 “Young man, my sister and I know you have helped us this summer with the ice,
even when knowing we could not pay.
 We’ve read in books recently that sometimes women
offer their bodies for sex in exchange for favors.
 Well, since we have not been able to raise any money,
 we decided to do that for you and since I am the youngest I am offering myself.”
Well, my uncle always claimed that he tried to convince her that it wasn’t necessary,
 but knowing him, that’s highly doubtful.
 He said after she insisted, he finally gave in,
 and then they supposedly went at it with youthful fervor.
Afterwards, he thanked the woman and dressed,
 took out his receipt book and wrote “Paid In Full”
and handed it to the sister.
“Now, look here young man, we got that ice a little piece at a time
and we damn well intend paying for it the same way!”


I did not know this.....

When you drink Vodka over ice, it can give you kidney failure,
When you drink Rum over ice, it can give you liver failure,
 When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems,
When you drink Gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.
Apparently, ice is bad for you.
Warn all your friends

I recently found this picture of me and my first babysitter


At a wedding reception…

At a wedding party recently someone yelled,
 “All the married men please stand next to the one person who has made your life worth living.”
The bartender was crushed to death.
