The housewife invited 2 couple and their children for dinner one night. As they get ready to eat, the housewife asks her son, “Would you like to say blessings”? “I don’t know what to say”, the boy replies.
“Just say what you hear what your mother says”, replied the mother.
The boy bowed his head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite two 2 couples and their kids for dinner”?
A priest dies and is in line at the Pearly Gates. Saint Peter asked the guy ahead of him his name. The guy replies, “I am Sam Horton, taxi driver from New York.” Saint Pater gives him a silken robe and golden staff and said, “Enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Now it’s the priest‘s turn. He booms out “ I am the Right Reverend Anderson.” Saint Peter gives him a cotton robe and a wooden staff, and says to the Priest, “Enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” Taken back the priest asks, “ That man was a taxi driver why does he get a silken robe and golden staff”.
“Results,” Said Saint Peter. “While you preached, people slept.
When the taxi driver drove, people prayed.

BABY WIPES TIPS
Since heading the market in the 80’s, these moistened disposable baby wipes proved to be great in and outside the home. From cleaning your hands after changing oil or a tire, clean tools, rub marks off your walls, many, many uses including shining your shoes, wipe with baby wipe and buff with a soft, dry cloth.
To freshen up a smelly drain, just pour a cup of Baking Soda into it, and flush with hot water.
Instead of using caustic products (be green and save money) for clearing blocked drains, throw a cup of baking soda down the drain followed by a few jugs of water.
GABA ENRICHED RICE
You can thank Associate Professor Orapin Kerdchoechuen and Assistant Professor Natta Laohakunjit of the Centre for Research and Development of Tropical and Sub-Tropical Crops at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi. They researched and developed Gaba enriched rice, a healthy and disease-preventing food .
Having succeeded with GABA rice – using gamma-amino butyric acid, which aids the nervous system and muscle tone – Orapin and Natta aren’t about to be so stingy with the rice-loving public.
They’re happy to show interested groups and organisations, especially small enterprises, how to germinate the brown rice, and this gives them an alternative way to earn money.
Studies have shown that germinated brown rice can lower blood pressure, improve kidney function and help us sleep better. It appears to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease as well.
USE FOOD THERMOMETER
Don’t rely on looks alone. Bacteria can spread during ground meat. Always use a food thermometer and cook at 160 degrees Fahrenheit when cooking your hamburgers.
