This page tells you how many days old you are and on which day you were born.

* The number of leap years you have lived through actually shows how many February 29’s you’ve been in. For instance, someone born in August 2012 will have 0 leap years because he was born after February 29th.

The year 2000 is a leap year. Year numbers divisible by 100 aren’t leap years, unless they can be divided by 400.

Wow! I’ve seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I’ve seen it with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study:

If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. 

And better than that: Alzheimer’s is a long, long, ways down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘half empty or half full?’… She fooled them all …. “How heavy is this glass of water?” she inquired with a smile.
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz.

She replied , “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm.

If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance. In each case it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “and that’s the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on.”

“As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden – holding stress longer and better each time practiced.
So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down.
Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night… Pick them up tomorrow.

1 * Accept the fact that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue!

2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

3 * Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

4 * Drive carefully… It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

5 * If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

8 * Never buy a car you can’t push.

9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.

10 * Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.

11 * Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.

13 * When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.

14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

19 * Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

20 *Save the earth….. It’s the only planet we live on!*

Today someone asked me if I liked you.  I laughed, and I said, “Ha! That’s  funny!!   I absolutely LOVE  that   person!!  They are funny, caring, crazy as heck, sweet, beautiful,   they are reading this  right now & I love them!!”  Share this with other people you love!

NOW HEAR THIS…NOT ALL THIEVES ARE STUPID!!
1. A friend of a friend left their car in the long-term parking at
San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the
information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they
drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I
guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should
not leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote
garage door opener.
This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
2. GPS.
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had
their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car
was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and
specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car
included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had
been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home,
they found that their house had been ransacked and just about
everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the
GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote
control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The
thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time
the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they
had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a
truck to empty the house of its contents.
Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address
in it… Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can
still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know
where you live if your GPS were stolen.
3. MOBILE PHONES
I never thought of this…….
This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her
mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which
contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. 20
minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him
what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text asking about our
Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.’ When they rushed
down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already
withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text
‘hubby’ in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20
minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
Moral of the lesson:
a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in
your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby,
Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc….
b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked
through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
c. Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet
them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came
from them. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going
places to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.* I never thought about the above!
As of now, I no longer have ‘home’ listed on my cell phone.
Even if this does not pertain to you….Pass it on to your family and friends.

Here’s something to keep you entertained for awhile.  Flight Radar.  It tracks every commercial flight, passenger or cargo, anywhere in the world.  

 

Just scroll through the map, and pick out a plane, any plane.  Put your curser over it, and left click ONCE.   A window will open up on the left, idenifying the plane, where it came from, where it’s headed, the speed, altitude, everything.  

 

Watch a plane land at an airport, and the little window will refresh every 10 seconds.  You’ll see the speed going 450… 350… 230…. 140…. 80..50….. 20….. 12…. 12… 12… and then the plane will disappear from the screen as it has pulled up at its ramp and stopped.  This works all over the world, too.  Zoom in or out, pick out a city and watch the planes landing there.  or, follow them across the ocean.  As I say, it will keep you busy for awhile.

was never officially adopted.


·  It contains as much water as all the other Great Lakes
combined, plus three extra Lake Erie ‘s!!

·  There is a small outflow from the lake at St. Mary’s River
(Sault Ste Marie) into Lake Huron , but it takes almost

THE TRICK IS TO FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS

This is bizarre – after you find the guy – it’s so obvious.
Once you find him – it’s embarrassing, and you think,
Why didn’t I see him immediately?
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people.
 
If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein.
If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!

And, yes, the man is really there!!
