 Just got this in from a reliable source. It seems there is a virus out there
 called the C-nile Virus that even the most advanced programs from Norton and McAfee cannot take care of. It appears to affect those of us who were born
 before 1960!

 Symptoms of C-nile Virus:

 1. Causes you to send same e-mail twice.

 2. Causes you to send blank e-mail.

 3. Causes you to send to wrong person.

 4. Causes you to send back to person who sent it to you.

 5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment.

 6. Causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished the

The Cracked Pot

A water bearer in China had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a polewhich she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots of water to his house.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After 2 years of what perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes to leak out all the way back to your house.

The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.

Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

To all of my crackpot friends, have a great day
and remember to smell the flowers.

Funny Labels
In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

On Sears hairdryer:
Do not use while sleeping.
(Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)

On a bag of Fritos:
You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(The shoplifter special!)

On a bar of Dial soap:
Directions: Use like regular soap.
(and that would be how?)

On some Swann frozen dinners:
Serving suggestion: Defrost.
(But it's *just* a suggestion!)

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert:
Do not turn upside down.
(printed on bottom of the box)
(Too late! You lose!)

On Marks and Spencer Bread Pudding:
Product will be hot after heating.
(Are you sure??? Let's experiment.)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
Do not iron clothes on body.
(But wouldn't that save more time?)

On Boot's Children's cough medicine:
Do not drive car or operate machinery.
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)

On Nytol sleep aid:
Warning: may cause drowsiness.
(One would hope!)

On a Korean kitchen knife:
Warning keep out of children.
(Or pets! What's for dinner?)

On a string of Chinese-made Christmas lights:

(Now I'm curious.)

On Sainsbury's peanuts:
Warning: contains nuts.
(Not to mention the nut who wrote the warning)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.

On a childs superman costume:
Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
(That's right, destroy a universal childhood fantasy!)

And they think there is something wrong with us? Ha!


Funny Signs
if you thought the labels were a hoot
just wait until you get a look at these...

Just in case batman gets lost?

Decisions, decisions...

Huh? Why would this be a sign?

At least they have honest Advertising.

Hope it's not an emergency or anything.

Mmmmm. Tasty.

Because good hygiene is important.

Not even that emergency Phone?

To chill out those stressed rabbits.

Bet the person who made this sign gets lost frequently.

Someone needs to explain "secret" to these people.

Well ya think?
