    Take A Look At this Picture: What Do You See? Then Check the Explanation That Follows:

    You saw a couple in an intimate pose, right??

    Interestingly, research has shown that young children cannot identify the intimate couple

    because they do not have prior memory associated with such a scenario.?

    What they will see, however, is the nine dolphins in the picture!?

    So, I guess we’ve already proven you’re not a young innocent child.. Now, if it’s hard for you to find the dolphins within 6 seconds, your mind is SO corrupted that you probably need help!?

    OK, here’s help: look at the space between her right arm and her head, the tail is on her neck, follow it up. Look at her left hip, follow the shaded part down, it’s another one, and on his shoulder..?

    OH, S U R E , you see them NOW

    Sven from Minnesota

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Sven from Minnesota

    Sven, a furniture dealer from Albert Lea, Minnesota, decided to expand the line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go to Paris to see what he could find.

    After arriving in Paris, he visited with some manufacturers and selected a line that he thought would sell well back home. To celebrate the new acquisition, he decided to visit a small bistro and have a glass of wine.

    As he sat enjoying his wine, he noticed that the small place was quite crowded, and that the other chair at his table was the only vacant seat in the house.

    Before long, a very beautiful young Parisian girl came to his table, asked him something in French (which Sven could not understand), so he motioned to the vacant chair and invited her to sit down.

    He tried to speak to her in English, but she did not speak his language. After a couple of minutes of trying to communicate with her, he took a napkin and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it to her. She nodded, so he ordered a glass of wine for her.

    After sitting together at the table for a while, he took another napkin, and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded. They left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group playing romantic music.

    They ordered dinner, after which he took another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and they got up to dance. They danced until the cafe closed and the band was packing up.

    Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a four-poster bed. To this day, Sven has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business.

    Amazing Story of Delta Flight 15 on 9/11

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Amazing Story of Delta Flight 15 on 9/11

    This is a good old story, a bit long, but well worth reading.

    Jerry Brown Delta Flight 15 … (true story)

    Here is an amazing story from a flight attendant on Delta Flight 15,

    written following 9-11:

    On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about 5 hours out of
    Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic …..

    All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the cockpit,
    immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the
    crew had that "All Business" look on their faces. The captain handed me a
    printed message. It was from Delta’s main office in Atlanta and simply read,
    "All airways over the Continental United States are closed to commercial air
    traffic. Land ASAP at the nearest airport. Advise your destination."

    No one said a word about what this could mean. We knew it was a serious
    situation and we needed to find terra firma quickly. The captain determined
    that the nearest airport was 400 miles behind us in Gander , New Foundland.

    He requested approval for a route change from the Canadian traffic
    controller and approval was granted immediately — no questions asked. We
    found out later, of course, why there was no hesitation in approving our

    While the flight crew prepared the airplane for landing, another message
    arrived from Atlanta telling us about some terrorist activity in the New
    York area. A few minutes later word came in about the hijackings.

    We decided to LIE to the passengers while we were still in the air. We told
    them the plane had a simple instrument problem and that we needed to land at
    the nearest airport in Gander , New Foundland, to have it checked out.

    We promised to give more information after landing in Gander ..

    There was much grumbling among the passengers, but that’s nothing new! Forty
    minutes later, we landed in Gander . Local time at Gander was 12:30 PM! …..
    that’s 11:00 AM EST.

    There were already about 20 other airplanes on the ground from all over the
    world that had taken this detour on their way to the U.S.

    After we parked on the ramp, the captain made the following announcement:
    "Ladies and gentlemen, you must be wondering if all these airplanes around
    us have the same instrument problem as we have. The reality is that we are
    here for another reason."

    Then he went on to explain the little bit we knew about the situation in the
    U.S. There were loud gasps and stares of disbelief. The captain informed
    passengers that Ground control in Gander told us to stay put.

    The Canadian Government was in charge of our situation and no one was
    allowed to get off the aircraft. No one on the ground was allowed to come
    near any of the air crafts. Only airport police would come around
    periodically, look us over and go on to the next airplane. In the next hour
    or so more planes landed and Gander ended up with 53 airplanes from all over
    the world, 27 of which were U.S. commercial jets.

    Meanwhile, bits of news started to come in over the aircraft radio and for
    the first time we learned that airplanes were flown into the World Trade
    Center in New York and into the Pentagon in DC. People were trying to use
    their cell phones, but were unable to connect due to a different cell system
    in Canada . Some did get through, but were only able to get to the Canadian
    operator who would tell them that the lines to the U.S. were either blocked
    or jammed.

    Sometime in the evening the news filtered to us that the World Trade Center
    buildings had collapsed and that a fourth hijacking had resulted in a crash.
    By now the passengers were emotionally and physically exhausted, not to
    mention frightened, but everyone stayed amazingly calm. We had only to look
    out the window at the 52 other stranded aircraft to realize that we were not
    the only ones in this predicament.

    We had been told earlier that they would be allowing people off the planes
    one plane at a time. At 6 PM, Gander airport told us that our turn to
    deplane would be 11 am the next morning. Passengers were not happy, but they
    simply resigned themselves to this news without much noise and started to
    prepare themselves to spend the night on the airplane.

    Gander had promised us medical attention, if needed, water, and lavatory
    servicing. And they were true to their word.

    Fortunately we had no medical situations to worry about. We did have a young
    lady who was 33 weeks into her pregnancy. We took REALLY good care of her.
    The night passed without incident despite the uncomfortable sleeping


    About 10:30 on the morning of the 12th a convoy of school buses showed up.
    We got off the plane and were taken to the terminal where we went through
    Immigration and Customs and then had to register with the Red Cross.

    After that we (the crew) were separated from the passengers and were taken
    in vans to a small hotel. We had no idea where our passengers were going. We
    learned from the Red Cross that the town of Gander has a population of
    10,400 people and they had about 10,500 passengers to take care of from all
    the airplanes that were forced into Gander ! We were told to just relax at
    the hotel and we would be contacted when the U.S. airports opened again, but
    not to expect that call for a while.

    We found out the total scope of the terror back home only after getting to
    our hotel and turning on the TV, 24 hours after it all started.

    Meanwhile, we had lots of time on our hands and found that the people of
    Gander were extremely friendly. They started calling us the "plane people."
    We enjoyed their hospitality, explored the town of Gander and ended up
    having a pretty good time.

    Two days later, we got that call and were taken back to the Gander airport.
    Back on the plane, we were reunited with the passengers and found out what
    they had been doing for the past two days. What we found out was incredible.

    Gander and all the surrounding communities (within about a 75 Kilometer
    radius) had closed all high schools, meeting halls, lodges, and any other
    large gathering places. They converted all these facilities to mass lodging
    areas for all the stranded travelers. Some had cots set up, some had mats
    with sleeping bags and pillows set up.

    ALL the high school students were required to volunteer their time to take
    care of the "guests." Our 218 passengers ended up in a town called
    Lewisporte, about 45 kilometers from Gander where they were put up in a high
    school. If any women wanted to be in a women-only facility, that was
    arranged. Families were kept together. All the elderly

    passengers were taken to private homes.

    Remember that young pregnant lady? She was put up in a private home right
    across the street from a 24-hour Urgent Care facility.

    There was a dentist on call and both male and female nurses remained with
    the crowd for the duration.

    Phone calls and e-mails to the U.S. and around the world were available to
    everyone once a day. During the day, passengers were offered "Excursion"
    trips. Some people went on boat cruises of the lakes and harbors. Some went
    for hikes in the local forests. Local bakeries stayed open to make fresh
    bread for the guests.

    Food was prepared by all the residents and brought to the schools. People
    were driven to restaurants of their choice and offered wonderful meals.
    Everyone was given tokens for local laundry mats to wash their clothes,
    since luggage was still on the aircraft. In other words, every single need
    was met for those stranded travelers.

    Passengers were crying while telling us these stories. Finally, when they
    were told that U.S. airports had reopened, they were delivered to the
    airport right on time and without a single passenger missing or late. The
    local Red Cross had all the information about the whereabouts of each and
    every passenger and knew which plane they needed to be on and when all the
    planes were leaving. They coordinated everything beautifully.

    It was absolutely incredible.

    When passengers came on board, it was like they had been on a cruise.
    Everyone knew each other by name. They were swapping stories of their stay,
    impressing each other with who had the better time. Our flight back to
    Atlanta looked like a chartered party flight. The crew just stayed out of
    their way. It was mind-boggling.

    Passengers had totally bonded and were calling each other by their first
    names, exchanging phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses.

    And then a very unusual thing happened.

    One of our passengers approached me and asked if he could make an
    announcement over the PA system. We never, ever allow that. But this time
    was different. I said "of course" and handed him the mike. He picked up the
    PA and reminded everyone about what they had just gone through in the last
    few days. He reminded them of the hospitality they had received at the hands
    of total strangers. He continued by saying that he would like to do
    something in return for the good folks of Lewisporte.

    "He said he was going to set up a Trust Fund under the name of DELTA 15 (our
    flight number). The purpose of the trust fund is to provide college
    scholarships for the high school students of Lewisporte.

    He asked for donations of any amount from his fellow travelers.

    When the paper with donations got back to us with the amounts, names, phone
    numbers and addresses, the total was for more than $14,000!

    "The gentleman, a MD from Virginia , promised to match the donations and to
    start the administrative work on the scholarship. He also said that he would
    forward this proposal to Delta Corporate and ask them to donate as well.

    As I write this account, the trust fund is at more than $1.5 million and has
    assisted 134 students in college education.

    "I just wanted to share this story because we need good stories right now.
    It gives me a little bit of hope to know that some people in a faraway
    place were kind to some strangers who literally dropped in on them.

    It reminds me how much good there is in the world."

    "In spite of all the rotten things we see going on in today’s world this
    story confirms that there are still a lot of good people in the world and when things get bad, they will come forward.

    *This is one of those stories that need to be shared. Please do so…*

    A quiet surprise

    Date: 26 April 2014 12:36
    Subject: Fwd: A quiet surprise


    A quiet surprise I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back. I asked "why?"… The angel said: "Angels don’t watch over angels!" Twenty angels are in your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, and one is reading this message. Please read….not joking…..God has seen you struggling with something. God says it’s over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God, send this message on, please don’t ignore it, you are being tested. God is going to fix two BIG things tonight in your favor. If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day ever. Send this to ten friends, including me, if I don’t get it back, I guess I’m not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.

    Dreams are only Dreams.. make them REALITY
