~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

STRENGTH OF A MAN

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It's in the gentle words he whispers.

The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It's how good of buddies he is with his children.

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It's in how respected he is at home.

The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits.
It's in how tender he touches.

The strength in a man isn't in the hair on his chest.
It's in his Heart . . . that lies within his chest.

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It's in the burdens he can carry.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

TOP REASONS FOR BEING A . . . . Part 4 of 4 [Sept 1, 11, 21, 29]
ALTO

You get really good at singing E flat.

You get to sing the same note for 12 consecutive measures, tang...... tang..... tang......

You don't really need to warm up to sing 12 consecutive bars of E flat.

If the choir really stinks, it's unlikely the altos will be blamed.

You have lots of time to chat during soprano solos.

You get to pretend that you are better than the sopranos, because everybody knows that women only sing soprano so they don't have to learn to read music.

You can sometimes find part time work singing tenor.

Altos get all the great intervals.

When the sopranos are holding some outrageously high note at the end of an anthem, the altos always get the last words.

When the altos miss a note, nobody gets hurt.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

A minister was planning a wedding at the close of the Sunday morning service.

After the benediction he had planned to call the couple down to be married for a brief ceremony before the congregation.

For the life of him, he couldn't think of the names of those who were to be married.

"Will those wanting to get married please come to the front?" he requested.

Immediately, nine single ladies, three widows, four widowers, and six single men stepped to the front.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

United States Surname Distribution

Enter a surname (last name) into the form in the URL below and you'll get a map of the United States showing the distribution of people with this surname within the 50 United States. This map is often helpful when trying to determine a starting point for genealogy projects.

The source of this data is the 1850 Census, 1880 Census, 1920 Census, and 1990's phone books. Note that the Census data is a sampling of 1 in 100 names, so the 1990 data is the most accurate. - Copyright 1999 Hamrick Software
