New Study


So we went to the concert of America last Saturday. From the sea of fans scampering in the theater hallway I could tell I was among fellow fanatics. People were taking selfies and probably pinching themselves (like me) to make sure they weren't dreaming because tonight we were going to watch this legendary American band.

However, I'm sad to report that it was terrible --- musically at least. It was a fund raiser for a High School so we should have expected the low budget archaic sound system --- 30 years old at least. It was so bad the muffled announcement reminded me of the adults speaking in a Charlie Brown movie. I mean c'mon, even our church sound system was better than that. The famous performers were probably affected by the deplorable situation because their energy level was depressing --- they couldn't even reach their notes.

But they say there is always a silver lining in any situation. I saw it. I saw that these superstars were human too. If these professionals could sound this bad, then there's so much potential for normal people like us. Given the right equipment any of us with decent talent could create beautiful music.

But it wasn't a total loss. We still enjoyed the evening because our daughter and her favorite cousin were with us.And they had a ball chatting all evening. And when you're with people you love, no lousy performance could ruin any night.

"What day is it?" asked Pooh.
"It's today," squeeked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.

I hope this is your favorite day.

Gun Incident
Sent by Mike of New York

A guy walked into a crowded bar, waving his model 1911 Colt .45
caliber pistol with an 8 round magazine, and yelled,
"Who in here has been fooling around with my wife?"

A voice from the back of the bar yelled back, "You need more ammo!"

Saul Epstein was taking an oral exam in his English as a Second Language class. He was asked to spell "cultivate," and he spelled it correctly. He was then asked to use the word in a sentence, and, with a big smile, responded:

"Last vinter on a very cold day, I vas vaiting for a bus, but it vas too cultivate, so I took the subvay home."

Amazing 13 Year Old Singer

When you're 13 years old with talent like this, do you play safe and go for an easy song or do you blow them away with your incredible pipes? The choice is obvious. Look at the reaction of the judges.

She was a gifted pianist who survivored to a 110. I think her secret was her attitude towards life.
