We returned home last night from a wonderful four days of our church convention. I’m be working on my “gems” in the next few days and will try to have them ready to share with you by this weekend.
A Big Trout
Here’s a picture of the biggest rainbow trout I have ever seen. The fish weighed 48 pounds and was caught in Lake Diefenbaker which is in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. That sure makes those 6-7 pound trout we’ve been catching locally look kind of puny.
There is some question whether the trout is truly a new world record. Read more about it.

'No, take it -- I saw the 6 o'clock news too, but I was sure that this time she wouldn't do it.'
A child psychologist from NYU is studying the limits of optimism in children, by placing them in a small room filled with horse manure, and observing their behavior. When one of the most optimistic children is placed in the room, she happily runs around digging through the manure. The psychologist is overcome with curiosity, enters the room and asks the child 'What are you doing?' 'Well,' says the small girl, 'I figure with all this manure, there's got to be a pony in here somewhere.
