The teen-aged beauty was telling a friend that she was really worried about her mother. It seems she's always fatigued from staying up all night long. Her friend asked, "What's she doing staying up all night? At her age, that's not good at all." The girl replied, "Waiting for me to come home."
A pastor was speaking to a group of second-graders about the resurrection of Jesus when one student asked, "What did Jesus say right after He came out of the grave?" The pastor explained that the Gospels do not tell us what He said. The hand of one little girl shot up. "I know what He said: He said, 'Tah-dah!'"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bradley Norris, 20, in Polk County, Florida naked inmate tries to escape from hospital POLK COUNTY, FL -- A Polk County Deputy was injured while trying to prevent an inmate from escaping from a hospital wearing nothing but socks with his ankles shackled together. Bradley Norris, who was arrested on May 1, 2010, for 10 counts of violation of parole, ranging from Grand Theft to Burglary and Trespassing, Armed Robbery, Aggravated Battery and Conspiracy, was transferred to Lake Wales Hospital on May 6, 2010, for medical reasons. 40-year-old Detention Deputy Michelle Threatt was on hospital watch over 20-year-old Bradley Norris when a struggle began in the hospital room after Norris said he needed to use the bathroom. Deputy Threatt shackled Norris’ ankles together before he was allowed to get up from the bed. When he got up he began attacking the Deputy hitting her on the head, struggling with her, overpowering her and eventually fleeing the room at Lake Wales Hospital. During the struggle, Norris’ gown was torn from his body and when he fled hospital, he was wearing only socks, and his ankles were shackled together. It was immediately dispatched over the radio that an inmate had escaped from the Lake Wales Hospital. Norris was spotted at the Lake Wales Art Center first by Lake Wales Police Officers and was taken into custody. Norris will face additional charges, including Escape, and Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer. Detention Deputy Threatt was treated and released from the hospital for a minor injury to her head. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are likely to be added.

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was astonished that the hungry lions had not eaten Daniel. He summoned Daniel and promised him that if he would reveal his secret, the king would give him his freedom. "It was easy, your excellency," Daniel said. "I went around and whispered in each lion's ear - 'After dinner, there will be speeches.'"
Daily tip from Have a Laundry Basket for Each Person When taking dry clothes off the washing line have a basket for each person (either with their name written on the wash basket or a different colour). When you take the baskets in, each person is responsible for putting their clothes away. My two boys have done this since they were 6 years old. I still have their drawers labeled so not only they can put their things away but if I get someone in to help me they can do it easily too.

When a young minister was still single, he preached a sermon he entitled, "Rules for Raising Children." After he got married and had children of his own, he changed the title of the sermon to "Suggestions for Raising Children." When his children got to be teenagers, he stopped preaching on that subject altogether.
