Cows, Constitution and the Ten Commandments!

My dad forward this on to me and I thought it was too funny not to post.

Cows, constitution, Ten Commandments

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately -- illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida ..

.. Not me -- I concentrate on solutions for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.

* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.

* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today? Yes!

Think about this:
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments


COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow..


THE CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ..... Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.


THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this -- you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians ... It creates a hostile work environment.

Happy Father's Day!

This year my dad is in Iraq so I'm not able to celebrate with him. The most I could do was send him an e-mail. Happy Father's Day dad! I love you!

Happy 31st Wedding Anniversary Mom and Dad!

My parents were married 31 years today. The other night my dad called me from Iraq and asked if I could pick up some flowers for my mom for their Anniversary. I felt so bad that they couldn't be together on this special day. I picked out a great bouquet and my mom and I had a fun evening together just hanging out having some pizza and watching a great chick flick! Sorry you couldn't be there dad! We love you!

Jaden loves to watch movies in his chair. Every morning he askes to watch a new movie. He's really starting to open up to all kinds of movies. He loves Mary Poppins. When we're getting to walk out the door he'll say, "And off we go, with a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...."

He's so fun to watch.

Real Fruit Roll-Ups

Joel and I bought a bunch of Strawberry's when they were on sale for $1 so I decided to try to make fruit roll ups. They actually turned out really good,

It was really fun and really good, but not really cost effective. Unless someone gave me a ton of strawberries for free, I probably wouldn't try this again.

1909

THE YEAR 1909

This will boggle your mind; I know it did mine!
The year is 1909.
One hundred years ago.
What a difference a century makes!
Here are some statistics for the Year 1909 :
************ ********* ********* ***
The average life expectancy was 47 years.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.

The average wage in 1909 was 22 cents per hour.

The average worker made between $200 and $400 per year .

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, A dentist
$2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and
a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME .

Ninety percent of all doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were
condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard. '

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg
yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their
country for any reason.

Five leading causes of death were:
1. Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart disease
5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars.

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30!!!!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and ice tea hadn't been invented yet.

There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.

Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at
the local corner drugstores.... Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin
clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach
and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health'

( Shocking! huh?)

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or
domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE ! U.S.A. !

I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.
From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD - all in a
matter of seconds!

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.
IT STAGGERS THE MIND
