When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24
Hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2
Glasses of wine (Grape Juice for those Teetotalers among us!) theory...
A professor stood before his philosophy class with some items on his
Desk in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up
a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with Golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into
The jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open
Areas between the golf balls.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous 'YES.' The professor then produced two glasses of wine from under the table And poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the Empty space between the sand. The students laughed. 'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to Recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the Important things; your family, your children, your health, your Friends, and your favorite passions; things that if everything else was lost And only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else; the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first', he continued, 'there is no Room for the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never Have room for the good things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play With your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your Partner out to dinner. Play another 18 holes. Do one more run down The ski slope. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter.
Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.' One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the wine represented. The professor smiled.. 'I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of glasses of wine (Grape Juice for those Teetotalers among us!) with a friend.'

The secret to long life...
A doctor on his morning walk, noticed an older lady sitting on her front step smoking a cigar, so he walked up to her and said, "I couldn't help but notice how happy you look! What is your secret?" "I smoke ten cigars a day," she said. "Before I go to bed, I smoke a nice big joint. Apart from that, I drink a whole bottle ofJack Daniel's every week, and eat only junk food. On weekends, I pop pills, and don't exercise at all." "That is absolutely amazing! How old are you?" "Thirty-four," she replied.

Uses for WD-40
Water Displacement #40 a. k. a. WD-40
And you thought that the term "Miracle Cure" was only a marketing ploy!
Thought that you might like to know more about this well-known product.
The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and de
greaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in1953 by three
technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company.
Its name comes from the project that was to find a "water displacement"
compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40.
The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their Atlas missile parts.
The workers were so pleased with the product, they began smuggling (also
known as "shrinkage" or "stealing") it out to use at home.
The executives decided there might be a consumer market for it and put it in
aerosol cans. The rest, as they say, is history.
It is a carefully guarded recipe known only to four people. Only one of them
is the "brew master."
There are about 2.5 million gallons of the stuff manufactured each year. It
gets it's distinctive smell from a fragrance that is added to the brew. Ken
East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that
would hurt you.
Here are some of the uses:
When you read the "shower door" part, try it. It's the first thing that has
ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as
well as on glass. It's a miracle!
Then try it on your stove top... Viola! It's now shinier than it's ever
been. You'll be amazed.

The favorite use in the state of New York--WD-40 protects the Statue of
Liberty from the elements.
WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a LITTLE on live bait or lures and you will be
catching the big one in no time.
Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for
just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or
lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately, and stops
WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe
with a clean rag.
Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a
tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with
WD-40 and re-wash. Presto! Lipstick is gone!
If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture
and allow the car to start.
WD-40, long known for its ability to remove left-over tape mung (sticky
label tape), is also a lovely perfume and air freshener!
Sprayed liberally on every hinge in the house, it leaves that distinctive
clean fresh scent for up to two days!
It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor!
Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem
to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them
off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!
P. S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL

During WW II
Lockheed During W.W.II (unbelievable 1940s pictures). This is a version of special effects during the 1940's.. I have never seen these pictures or knew that we had gone this far to protect ourselves.
During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a possible Japanese air attack.. They covered it with camouflage netting to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.
The person I received this from said she got back an interesting story about someone's mother who worked at Lockheed, and she as a younger child, remembers all this. And to this day, it is the first pictures of it she's seen. Another person who lived in the area talked about as being a boy, watching it all be set up like a movie studio production. They had fake houses, trees, etc. and moved parked cars around so it looked like a residential area from the skies overhead.
