A Frozen Wave?

Interesting Store
Check out this picture. I took this picture on Wednesday on a back road in Alabama when we stopped to buy ice for the fish we caught. The name of the country store is Scooters. Look at what they offer! A little bit of every thing and then some! Click on the picture to read the words: Video Rentals, Live Bait, Gifts, Tackle, Groceries, Printing, Plumbing, and Automotive.

Frozen Wave Pictures
You may have received an email with pictures showing a frozen wave, with some comments like this:

"The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice. That's what it is like in Antarctica where it is the coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air? The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing. Just look at how the wave froze in midair."

Yesterday I received an email with the same pictures, but saying it is from Michigan. It was time to check SNOPES
. If you click on that link you will find that the pictures are real from Antarctica, but the description of what created these ice structures is false. A lot of what you receive in email is not true. You need to check it out. One good way of doing it to to go to SNOPES.COM where you can check the validity of urban legends. In any event, these pictures are pretty.

Jokes of the Day

A young preacher was contacted by the local funeral director to hold a grave-side committal service at a small local cemetery for someone with no family or friends. The preacher started early but quickly got himself lost, making several wrong turns.

He arrived a half-hour late, the hearse was nowhere in sight, and the workmen were eating lunch.

The pastor went to the open grave and found the vault lid already in place. Taking out his book, he read the service.

As he was returning to his car, he overheard one of the workmen say: "Do you think we should tell him it's a septic tank?"
