Yankee or Dixie

You might want to score yourself if you plan on visiting the South to see if you will fit in. I found a website where you can check your dialect and see where you fit. Or, maybe you'll learn that you've crossed over to the the other side. If your score is 0% you are 100% Yankee. If your score is 100% you're pure Dixie. Click on the link below:

I scored 74% Dixie.

Just wondering? Anybody out there ever heard the expression, "Big possum travels late at night."?

Finger Painting
Check out the following video to see how this guy paints his hand(s) to look like animal and birds. It's quite amazing and the eyes are always so realistic.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

Joke of the Day

George W. Bush was visiting an elementary school, and the 4th grade class he sat through began a discussion related to words and their meanings.

The teacher asked the President if he would like to lead the class in a discussion of the word “tragedy.” So, George W. asked the class for an example of a tragedy.

One boy stood up and said, “If my best friend who lives next door is playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that would be a tragedy.”

“No,” said Bush, “that would be an accident.”

A girl raised her hand and said, “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone on board, that would be a tragedy.”

“I’m afraid not,” the President said. “That’s what we would call a Great Loss.”

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. President Bush searched the room and asked, “Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”

Finally, way in the back of the room, Johnny raised his hand, and in a quiet voice, he said, “If Air Force One, carrying Mr. and Mrs. Bush, was struck by a missile and blown up to smithereens, THAT would be a tragedy.”

“That’s right! And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?” asked the President.

“Well,” Johnny said, “because it wouldn’t be an accident and it sure as heck wouldn’t be a Great Loss…”
