~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A preacher and a the president of a soap manufacturing company went for a walk together.
The president said, "What good is Christianity? Look at all the trouble and misery of the world! Still there, even after years, thousands of years, of teaching about goodness and truth and love and peace. Still there, after all the sermons and teachings. If Christianity is good and true, why should this be?"
The preacher said nothing. They continued walking until he noticed a child playing in the gutter.
Then the preacher said, "Look at that child. You say that soap makes people clean, but see the dirt on that youngster. Of what good is soap? With all the soap in the world, over all these years, the child is still filthy. I wonder how effective soap is, after all!"
The president of the soap company protested, "But preacher, soap cannot do any good unless it is used!"
"Exactly," replied the preacher. "Exactly."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Serving as a Marine recruiter in western North Carolina, I found a young man who met all the requirements and was ready to enlist. I explained the importance of being truthful on the application, and he began filling out his paper work. But when he got to the question "Do you own any foreign property or have any foreign financial interests?" he looked up at me with a worried expression. "Well," he confessed, "I do own a Toyota."
We enlisted him the next day.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
I was at my bank to make a deposit when the clerk behind the counter turned to the computer for information. As she touched a button, a small part suddenly flew off the machine. All sorts of odd symbols started flashing across the screen. I heard her gasp, and then she turned to me in wide eyed wonder and exclaimed, "It's swearing at me!"

I Demand A Recount!
Carl Miner of Blytheville, Mississippi, ran unopposed for a local school board seat and got no votes because no one, not even Miner, showed up to vote. Miner still got the seat because no one else was running.
