    Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:  Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your  private account for your use.
     
    However,this prize has rules, just as  any game has certain rules.    The first set of rules would be:
     
           Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
     
          You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
          You may only spend it.
     
    Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.       The  second set of rules:
     
          The bank can end the game without warning; at any time  it can say, Its over,the game is over!  It can  close the account  and you will not receive a new one.
     
            What would you personally do?
     
    You would buy anything and everything you wanted right?  Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?  Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't  possibly spend it all on yourself, right?  You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?
     
          ACTUALLY This  GAME is  REALITY!
     
     Each of us is in possession of such a magical  bank. We just can't seem to see it.
     
                   The MAGICAL BANK is  TIME!
     
    Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is  NOT credited to us.
     
    What we haven't lived up that day is forever  lost.
     
    Yesterday is forever gone.
     
    Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank  can dissolve your account at any time….WITHOUT  WARNING.
     
    SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400  seconds?
     
    Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.
     
    Think about that, and always think of this:
     
    Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you  think.
     
    So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!
     
    Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.
    Start spending.

    Obituary of Common Sense 

    Date: 3 October 2010 10:28

    Obituary
     

    ——-Original Message——-

       SUBJECT: FW: Obituary
      OBITUARY PRINTED IN THE LONDON TIMES –
    Interesting and sadly rather true.
       Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense,
    who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old
    he was, since his   birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic
    red tape.
       He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons
    as:
       – Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
       – Why the early bird gets the worm;
       – Life isn’t always fair;
       – and maybe it was my fault.
       Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t
    spend more than   you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not
    children, are in charge).
       His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
    overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old
    boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens
    suspended from school for   using mouthwash after lunch; and a
    teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly   student, only worsened his
    condition.
       Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing
    the job   that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their
    unruly children.   It declined even further when schools were required
    to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a
    student; but could not inform parents when a student became
    pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
       Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became
    businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their
    victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend
    yourself from a burglar in your own home and   the burglar could sue
    you for assault.
       Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman
    failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She
    spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge
    settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents,
    Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility,
    and by his son, Reason.
       He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It
    Now,   Someone Else Is To Blame, and I’m A Victim
       Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.
    If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority
    and do nothing.

    Did I read that sign right?
    In an office-building:
    TOILET OUT OF ORDER…… PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW

    In a Laundromat:
    AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT

    In a London department store:
    BARGAIN BASEMENT UPSTAIRS

    In an office:
    WOULD THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE STEP LADDER YESTERDAY PLEASE BRING IT BACK OR FURTHER STEPS WILL BE TAKEN
    In an office:
    AFTER TEA BREAK STAFF SHOULD EMPTY THE TEAPOT AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD

    Outside a secondhand shop:
    WE EXCHANGE ANYTHING – BICYCLES, WASHING MACHINES, ETC.   WHY NOT BRING YOUR WIFE ALONG AND GET A WONDERFUL BARGAIN?

    Notice in health food shop window:
    CLOSED DUE TO ILLNESS

    Spotted in a safari park:
    ELEPHANTS PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR

    Seen during a conference:
    FOR ANYONE WHO HAS CHILDREN AND DOESN'T KNOW IT, THERE IS A DAY CARE ON THE 1ST FLOOR

    Notice in a farmer's field:
    THE FARMER ALLOWS WALKERS TO CROSS THE FIELD FOR FREE, BUT THE BULL CHARGES.

    On a repair shop door:
    WE CAN REPAIR ANYTHING. (PLEASE KNOCK HARD ON THE DOOR – THE BELL DOESN'T WORK)

    Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even a chuckle).  We all need a good laugh, keep on smiling.

    Denise,
     
    Thanks ever so much for this.  We typically don't respond, and don't expect anyone we send this to to respond, or forward it to other, but it was cute enough to include in our online storage.  You can find it at http://czarnik-life.posterous.com/
     
    And if you want to know when we add anything to it, follow the directions at http://czarnik-life.posterous.com/rss.xml
    Particularly love the last line – Live each day as if there is no tomorrow!
     
    Again thanks and catch up soon,
    Larry & Colleen

    I LOVE THIS WOMAN

    An elderly lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship
    holding her hat tight so that it would not blow away in the wind.

    A gentleman approached her and said,
    "Pardon me, madam..
    I do not intend to be forward but did you know that your dress
    is blowing up in this high wind?"

    "Yes, I know," said the lady.
    "I need both my hands
    to hold onto this hat."

    "But madam, you must know that you are not wearing any panties
    and your privates are exposed!" said the gentleman in earnest.

    The woman looked down, then back up at the man
    and replied, "Sir, anything you see down there is 75 years old. 
        just bought this hat yesterday!" 

    Live each day as if there is no tomorrow!

    Genius idea!!! 

    The guy who first thought of the idea must be given an award for originality !!! 
    Wow, what a fantastic idea!
    Do not have to grapple with rubber bands that are tied too tightly.

    How to seal a bag and make it air-tight!

    Image001

    Cut up a disposable water bottle and keep the neck and top, 
    as in photo.

    Image002

    Insert the plastic bag through the neck and screw the top – to seal.

    Image003

    The bottle is made to be air-tight, such that water will not leak, 
    the secret lies with the top and screw!
