Magic of Corn Starch & Water

This is worth watching if you have never seen it. What happens in this YouTube video clip borders on amazing.

Did you know that? I didn't know that. That was neat. We learn something new every day.

More Mixing Things Together
What would happen if you mix South Holston Lake, some Deeper Divers, some spoons, Tennessee Granddaddy and a couple of his fishing buddies? We tried this "mixture" yesterday (6/23/2008).

Well, this picture shows the result. We caught six really nice Lake Trout. The big one weighed 4 pounds and 3 ounces. The four largest weighed a total of 12 pounds and 4 ounces. A nice catch, but no Rainbow Trout.

Thanks, Doug and Sue!
Beverly and I had a wonderful supper last evening with our good friends, Doug and Sue B. Doug cooked pork loins on the grill along with a vegetable mix. We also had mashed sweet potatoes, a fruit salad, and a brownie with ice cream for dessert. It was all very delicious. And the time together was even more wonderful. I am thankful that we have such good and true friends.


Quotes of the Day
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

Joke of the Day
Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther,I'd like to ride in that helicopter." Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars."

One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."

To this, Esther replied, "Morris that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word, I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's fifty dollars."

Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"

Morris replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars."
