  1. Okay, I won't tell you that the site with the black lettered holidays, events, births and deaths was off line until 0:30 AM or that I zigged when I should of zagged and I lost all the illusions. So with the one off line site and the redoing of the illusions, here we are at 1:39 AM.

     

    Sorry,

    sandrewn

    (on a happier note,  the house is back to normal temperature)

     

     

     

     

    Q. Why were the teacher's eyes crossed?

    A. She couldn't control her pupils!            

     

    ...

     

     

    An elderly pastor was searching his closet for his        

    collar before church one Sunday morning. In the back

    of the closet, he found a small box containing              

    three eggs and 100 $1 bills.                                             


    He called his wife into the closet to ask her about the

    box and its contents. Embarrassed, she admitted       

    having hidden the box there for their entire 30 years 

     of marriage. Disappointed and hurt, the pastor asked

    her, "Why?" The wife replied that she hadn't wanted  

    to hurt his feelings. He asked her how the box could

    have hurt his feelings. She said that every time        

    during their marriage that he had delivered a poor   

    sermon, she had placed an egg in the box.                


    The pastor felt that three poor sermons in 30 years

       was certainly nothing to feel bad about, so he asked

    her what the $100 was for.                                          


    She replied, "Each time I got a dozen eggs, I sold   

    them to the neighbors for $1."                                    

     

    ...

     

     

    There once was a man who was so proud of the fact     

    that he had six kids that he insisted on calling his wife

    "mother of six."                                                                      

     

    His wife hated this name and asked him repeatedly     

    not to call her that, but he was a stubborn man and     

    was very proud that he had six kids.                               

     

    One evening they were at a dinner party for his            

    company and it was getting close to the time that      

    they should be leaving. The husband yelled from       

    across the room over to his wife, "mother of six, are  

    you ready to go?"                                                                

     

    Annoyed with his question, she responded, "In a         

    minute, Father of four."                                                      

     

    ...

     

     

    There was a perfect man and a perfect woman.                     

    They  met each other at a perfect party. They dated for two

    perfect years. They had the perfect wedding and the           

    perfect honeymoon. They had two perfect children.            

     

    One day the perfect man and the perfect woman                  

    were driving in their perfect car, they saw an elf by            

    the side of the road, being the perfect people they              

    were they picked him up.                                                          

     

    Well as the perfect man and the perfect woman were        

    driving with the elf, somehow they got into                          

    an accident. Two people died and one lived.                       

     

    Who died and who lived?                                                      

       

    The perfect woman, because the perfect man and            

    elves aren't real.

    Don Quixote Silver Coin Illusion

     

    The author behind the Don Quixote motif (engraved on this coin) is the great, Sandro Del Prete, and  the illusion should easily be seen, specially if you’re a Don Quixote fan.

      I forgot to mention that I’m glad you got your power back! Unlike my own situation, your loss of power was potentially life threatening for you and your tenant! We’re anticipating a drop in temperature to a low of 39°F (4°C) on Friday.  ;-)

       

      Thank you very much. This winter so far has had the greatest temperature variations that I have ever experienced.

      When I was in the Sinai desert (Egypt) in 75/6, in the summer the average daytime temp was 100 F and a couple times up to 110 F. At night it would drop to the low 70s F and we would have to put on sweaters and coats to keep warm. Until last week that was wildest that I ever experienced.

       

      Last week will I think remain the record for me for the rest of my life.  Within a 36 hr period It went from a high of 12 C / 53 F to a bone chilling -45 C / -49 F (with the wind chill). An over  100 F degree  difference, now that is mind blowing. I'd take that desert furnace over this ice cube maker in a New York minute!!! Even with the scorpions / vipers and malaria carrying mosquitoes, stand in my way at your own peril.
