The following video shows some beautiful photography by Jonathan Singer. His work is featured in the Smithsonian Libraries. The lens of his cameras has captured the art and beauty that is in the flowers… and all that’s lacking in the photos, is the fragrance.
This last little cold snap was probably Redbud Winter, and the one were are expecting for next week may be Dogwood Winter. Then there will be a Blackberry Winter to come as well. Just when we want Spring to spring, it seems these little winters get in our way. We are all eager for the warm spring days that we can enjoy. You’ll all heard this poem before, but it good to be reminded that we have to live with what God gives, and be thankful for it.
All of us could take a lesson from the weather.
It pays no attention to criticism.
Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
Joke of the Day
On a plane bound for New York, the flight attendant approached a blonde sitting in the first class section and requested that she move to economy since she did not have a first class ticket.
The blonde replied... "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to New York, and I'm not moving." Not wanting to argue with a customer, the flight attendant asked the copilot to speak with her.
He went to talk with the woman asking her to please move out of the first class section. Again, the blonde replied... "I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to New York, and I'm not moving." The copilot returned to the cockpit and asked the captain what he should do.
The captain said, "I'm married to a blonde, and I know how to handle this." He went to the first class section and whispered in the blonde's ear.
She immediately jumped up and ran to the coach section mumbling to herself, "Why didn't anyone just say so?"
Surprised, the flight attendant and the copilot asked what he said to her that finally convinced her to move from her seat. He said, "I told her the first class section was going to Chicago, and economy was going to New York."
