  • What is it that’s hard to break !!!!

     

    Diamonds are hard to find but not hard to Break.

    What is the hardest thing to break then?

    The answer is: HABIT!

     

    If you break the H, you still have A BIT.

    If you break the A, you still have BIT.

    If you break the B, you still have IT!

    Hey, after you break the T in IT, there is still the ‘I’.

    And that (I) is the root cause of all the problems.

    Isn’t it right?  –  !

    Now you know why HABIT is so hard to break….

    Its destiny is in its name!

     

    You think it is a frog and

    I think it is a horse!

    Wait for a while.

    Masses of seaweed is cleared away along the French coastline at Saint Michel-en-Greve, Northern Brittany, August 2, 2011. The mysterious death of 36 wild boars on France’s northwestern coast baffled authorities on Tuesday after tests suggested large amounts of rotting seaweed strewn across beaches may not be to blame. Environmentalists had said that toxic, foul-smelling hydrogen sulfide gas emitted by the rotting seaweed had poisoned the animals in the Cotes d’Armor region of Brittany. Ecologists say that nitrates pollution in rivers from fertilisers used in intensive farming has boosted the growth of algae along France’s coastline.

  • The Gunslinger

    An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat.

    He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.

    As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, “Hey old man, can you dance?”

    The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, “No son, I don’t dance… never really wanted to.”

    A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now!” and started shooting at the old man’s feet.

    The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.

    Everybody standing around was laughing.
    When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers.

    The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately.

    The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.

    The silence was deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 12 gauge barrels.The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man’s hands, as he quietly said;

    “Son, have you ever kissed a mule’s ass?”

    The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, “No sir… but…but I’ve always wanted to.”

    .There are a few lessons for all of us here:*Don’t be arrogant.
    *Don’t waste ammunition.
    *Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are.
    *Always make sure you know who is in control.
    *And finally, don’t screw around with old folks; they didn’t
    get old by being stupid.

  • Witty Priest.

     

    Witty Priest.

    A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the priest sitting beside her,

    “Father, may I ask a favor?

    “Of course, child. What may I do for you?

    “Well, I bought an expensive electronic hair dryer for my mother’s birthday that is unopened and well over the Customs limits. I’m afraid they’ll confiscate it.

    Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me… under your robe, perhaps?”

    “I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you… I will not lie.”

    “With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.”

    When they got to Customs, the woman let the priest go ahead of her.

    The official asked, “Father, do you have anything to declare?”

    “From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.”

    The official thought this answer strange, so asked,

    “And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?”

    “I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date…unused.”

    Roaring with laughter, the official said, “Go ahead, Father. Next!”
