Pumping Iron

Blacksmith Shop Behind Custom House, Saint Joh...Image via Wikipedia  My grandfather was sent by his parents from Denmark at the age of 14 to live with his Aunt and Uncle here in the USA.

    My grandfather worked in a blacksmith shop, and he used to tell me how he had strengthen himself so he could stand the rigors of blacksmiths.

   He said he would stand outside the house and with a five-pound potato sack in each hand, extend his arms straight out to his sides. He would hold them there as long as he could. He did this religiously for three weeks.

   After a while he tried ten pound potato sacks , then fifty-pound potato sacks, and finally he got to where he could lift a one-hundred pound potato sack in each hand and hold his arms straight out for a full minute!

   He never missed a day and performed this exercise in the coldest and hottest weather. He was determined to be the best blacksmith in the country.

Anatomy of a Laugh

Main complications of persistent high blood pr...Image via Wikipedia

Last week I wrote you a little Joke. If you enjoyed it, here is what it could have done for you according to research.

  • Your heart and lungs are stimulated.
  • Your heart beats faster and your blood pressure rises temporarily.
  • You breath deeper and oxygenate fore blood.
  • Your body releases endorphins, your own natural pain killers, and you produce more immune cells.
  • You burn seventy-eight times as many calories as you would in a resting state.
  • Your diaphragm, facial muscles and internal organs all get bounced around in a message sometimes called "internal jogging."
   After you've laughed, your  muscles and arteries relax. That's great for easing pain. Also, your blood pressure lowers and your pulse drops below normal. Some researchers think all this aids digestion.

   Proverbs 17:22
                              A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Snow Emergency - Where can I park?

Oak Grove St., Minneapolis, MinnesotaImage via WikipediaI have been guilty of something like this, but I can plead my age?

   Frank and his wife were listing to the radio when they heard the weather report: "A snow emergency has been announced. You must park your cars on the odd-numbered side of the street." So Frank got up and moved his car.

   Two days later--same thing. "A snow emergency is issued came on the radio." Radio announcer said "Park your cars on the even-numbered side of the street." So Frank went out and parked his car on the even-numbered side of the street.

   Three days later: "There will be a foot of snow today. Park your cars on the...., and the radio went dead.

    "I don't know what to do and I don't want to get a ticket"

    His wife said, "Why don't you leave the car in the garage?"

Young Squirrel learning from the old.

When I was a teenager, I could not see how my dad got where he was when he was so dumb.

I started to see Dad's wisdom when I arrived into my mid 20's.

I am now 73 and still learning dad's wisdom even though he went to
be with the Lord 15 years ago. Thank you Dad!
