Funny Stories and Life Experiences

New topic featuring funny stories. 

This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade…
So remember this story the next time …

A woman was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband..
She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:
" Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty.
You're crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?"

"We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?"

"We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome's Tiber River called Teste."

"Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s going to be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump."

"We're going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope."

"That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. "You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.

"It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked,
and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot..
And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job,
and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city.
They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"

"Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."

"Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door
and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.."

"Oh, really! What'd he say?"

He said: “Who screwed up your hair?”

A rich young woman sat beside a poor elderly man on a plane. She alerted the flight attendant upon taking her seat.
The flight attendant answered warmly, when the woman abruptly said, “Please find me another seat immediately.” The flight attendant responded, “I’m sorry Ma’am, but the economy cabin is fully booked.”
The rich woman replied, “But I’m not going to travel beside a worthless bum. Do something.”
While the elderly man stared in disbelief, the flight attendant responded, “I’ll talk to the Captain about this.”
The flight attendant went to the Captain and asked, “Captain, a woman feels uncomfortable sitting beside a poor elder man. What should we do?”
Surprisingly, the Captain’s face changed. He looked amused and said, “This woman is interesting. I’ve never encountered an issue like this before. I have a plan. Listen..”
And the Captain relayed to the flight attendant what he wants to do. The flight attendant was stunned at his plan. In fact, she was amazed.
A few minutes later, the flight attendant returned. “The Captain said we could use an open seat in First Class. He also wants to apologize for having to travel with such a terrible person.”
As the woman rose out of her seat, the flight attendant reached out her arm towards the poor elderly man. “Sir will you please follow me?” To which the plane applauded.
Never look down on other people. We are all equal in God’s sight. Regardless of what you have achieved in life, stay humble. Keep your feet on the ground. The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.

Plastic Awareness: Understanding Types and Recycling Numbers with Piperwai – PiperWai Natural Deodorant

NOVEMBER 09, 2022

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PLASTICS AND WHY SHOULD YOU BE AWARE OF THEIR RECYCLING NUMBERS ?

Let's start with a hard-hitting fact: almost 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been produced since the 1950s, according to UNEP. By 2050, the plastics sector might be responsible for 20% of all oil use worldwide. That's a lot of plastic, and where does all of this newly produced plastic go? Most estimates indicate that just 9% of all plastic ever produced has been recycled. The remaining 82% resides in our bodies, the ocean, landfills, and other natural sites. Only 12% of it has been burned. Interesting, isn't it?

The meaning of the recycling number, though, is more intriguing. When you open a package or item, a small sign may be seen imprinted on the plastic. It must have escaped your notice all this time, this symbol, also known as the recycling symbol, is made up of three arrows that are frequently connected by a number. Most of us have never given it much thought, despite its significance. If we have, we most likely gave it some thought when it was time to discard the item. Which was not the ideal time, right?

Let's delve deeper into the seven main categories of plastics and how they can be recycled.

The solar eclipse that occurred  today on April 8, 2024, was visible across North America and dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some media.

Did you see the Eclipse today?

The Eclipse that I saw here in Madison, Wisconsin was about 80%.

Hey Dave! @DaveMcK

Good to know you at least got an 80% view!

Our mostly cloudy day hindered all but a few moments to see it! But I must fess up...that I looked a few times thru the clouds & with short windows of partial clearing...using a friends ‘eclipse glasses’, but at times I also looked without them when a brief sunshine almost came thru!  I heard that for only a few seconds looking was a no-no... you’re not supposed to do even that! It was like a tease...it was hard trying to share glasses...“there it is...no it’s gone...wait there it is again...” ...& the few glimpses was incredible....Hopefully no damage done!

Anyway...as always take care!

2024 is a leap year, meaning Thursday, Feb. 29 is a once-in-every-four-year event.

Since leap years typically happen every four years (although there are some exceptions), our last leap days were in 2020 and 2016, and the next leap year will happen in 2028.

And since this is a day that doesn't come around often, people are celebrating in different ways, with businesses offering special deals in commemoration and others finally celebrating their Feb. 29 birthday.

Good Morning My AARP Family, Friends . Don’t underestimate the power of thoughts and words. What you tell yourself every morning will set your mind and life on that path. Talk success, victory, happiness and blessings over your destiny.

If an egg is broken by outside force, life ends, if broken by inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from inside.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay" I need someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not ".

I picked them fresh from the bush and ate some while picking them for making jam.
