    A CHURCH OF TREES

    Lovely idea for a limited climate

    This Guy Grew A Church Out Of Trees 7-21-15 !!

    And It’s The Most Enchanting Place In The World.

    I think this is amazing and I can’t believe it only took him 4 years to complete. Enjoy,

    For some people, the worship of nature & the divine go hand in hand. They see the overwhelming beauty in the world around them & can’t help

    but see the hand of some otherworldly force at work.

    Brian Cox, a New Zealand native, spent years traveling the world & studying many different houses of worship. He’s also the owner of

    Treelocations, a company that moves & plants large trees. So when he returned home, he knew exactly what he wanted to do to build

    his own monument to spirituality.

    In 2011, Brian Began work on the Tree Church, which took him 4 years to complete.

    Brian used steel frames to make the skeleton of this beautiful church.

    tree-church-nature-installation-barry-cox-new-zealand-1

    He used a wide variety of trees and plants to create different textures and forms.

    He was careful to make sure the canopy never got too dense, so that sunlight would always illuminate the church.

    For the walls he used Copper Sheen trees, because the color of their bark is so similar to stone.

    When it was finished, Brian decided that everyone should be able to enjoy the church, so he opened it up to the public.

    Brian’s own nephew was recently married in the church.

    The building requires a lot of upkeep – it takes over 8 hours of pruning and mowing to get it ready for visitors. But it’s worth it!

    “Visitors have said that they find the Tree Church relaxing and that their worries disappear,” Brian says. “I find that sort of feedback immensely rewarding.”

    Open Car Windows – IMPORTANT TO READ 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 29 August 2015 at 06:21
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Open Car Windows – IMPORTANT TO READ

    FYI

    Open Car Windows – IMPORTANT TO READ
    >
    >
    This message from Dr . Syed Badar Husain, renowned neurologist in Atlanta:

    To Each AC Car user, Now this is very interesting & MUST READ , as it’s for HEALTH! Car’s manual says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C. WHY?
    No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from, but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer-causing incidents.
    Many people are in their cars the first thing in the morning, and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.
    Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.
    Open the windows after you enter your car and then after a couple of minutes, turn ON the AC.
    Here’s why: According to research, the car’s dashboard, seats, a/c ducts, in fact ALL of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. A BIG CARCINOGEN. Take the time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car when you open it, and BEFORE you start it up.
    addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anaemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure can cause Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers. It can also cause miscarriages in pregnant women.
    The "acceptable" Benzene level indoors is: 50mg per sq.ft.

    A car parked indoors, with windows closed, will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene – 8 times the acceptable level.
    If parked outdoors in the sun, at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.
    People who get into the car, keeping the windows closed, will eventually INHALE excessive amounts of the BENZENE toxin.
    Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidneys and liver. What’s worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.
    So friends, please open the windows and doors of your car – give it some time for the interior to air out -(dispel the deadly stuff) – before you enter the vehicle.
    Thought: ‘When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others .

    NEIGHBOR LADY

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: NEIGHBOR LADY

    She’s beautiful and she lives right across the street. I can see her place from my kitchen window.


    I watched as she got home from work this evening. I was surprised when she walked across the street, up my driveway and knocked on the door.


    I opened the door, she looked at me and said, "I just got home, and I have this strong urge to have a good time, dance, get drunk, and have fun tonight. Are you doing anything?"


    I quickly replied, "Nope, I’m free!"


    "Great," she said. "Can you watch my dog?"


    Being a senior citizen, really sucks!

    BEAUTIFUL WORDS 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 23 August 2015 at 02:02
    Subject: Fw: Fwd: BEAUTIFUL WORDS

    Sometimes life gets in the way and we forget the things that are really important in life – and they’re not things.
    These are words to live by.

    BEAUTIFUL WORDS……

    Someone has written these beautiful words.

    Must read and try to understand the deep meaning of it.

    They are like the ten commandments to follow in life all the time.

    1. Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

    2. So why is a car’s windshield so large and the rear view mirror so small? Because our past is not as important as our future. So, look ahead and move on.

    3. Friendship is like a book. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

    4. All things in life are temporary. If it’s going well, enjoy it, that won’t last long. If it’s going badly, don’t worry, that won’t last long either.

    5. Old friends are gold! New friends are diamond! If you get a diamond, don’t forget the gold! Because to hold a diamond, you always need a base of gold!

    6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, God smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!"

    7. When God solves your problems, you have faith in His abilities; when God doesn’t solve your problems, He has faith in your abilities.

    8. A blind person asked St. Anthony, "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied, "Yes, losing your vision!"

    9. When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them; sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

    10. Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace .

    If you really enjoy this, please pass to others. It may brighten someone’s day….

    Why do women take so long in the toilet… 

    So THAT’S WHY!
    Forwarded message
    From: Ralph & BA
    Date: 23 August 2015 at 03:20
    Subject: Fw: Why do women take so long in the toilet…
    ​​

    When you have to visit a public toilet, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place.

    Once it’s your turn, you check for feet under the cubicle doors.

    Every cubicle is occupied.

    Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the cubicle.

    You get in to find the door won’t latch.

    It doesn’t matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants!

    The dispenser for the modern ‘seat covers’ (invented by someone’s Mum, no doubt) is handy, but empty.

    You would hang your bag on the door hook, if there was one, so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mum would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR !) down with your pants and assume ‘The Stance.’

    In this position, your aging, toneless, thigh muscles begin to shake. You’d love to sit down,
    but having not taken time to wipe the seat or to lay toilet paper on it, you hold ‘The Stance.’

    To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser.

    In your mind, you can hear your mother’s voice saying, ‘Dear, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!’ Your thighs shake more.

    You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday – the one that’s still in your bag (the bag around your neck, that now you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time).

    That would have to do, so you crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It’s still smaller than your thumbnail.

    Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn’t work.

    The door hits your bag, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest and you and your bag topple backward against the tank of the toilet.

    ‘Occupied!’ you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, while losing your footing altogether and sliding down directly onto the TOILET SEAT .

    It is wet of course. You bolt up, knowing all too well that it’s too late.

    Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper – not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try.

    You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because you’re certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear,

    ‘You just don’t KNOW what kind of diseases you could get.

    By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl and spraying a fine mist of water that covers your bum and runs down your legs and into your shoes.

    The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force and you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in too.

    At this point, you give up. You’re soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat. You’re exhausted.

    You try to wipe with a sweet wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks.

    You can’t figure out how to operate the taps with the automatic sensors, so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting…

    You are no longer able to smile politely to them.

    A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (Where was that when you NEEDED it?)

    You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman’s hand and tell her warmly, ‘Here, you just might need this.

    As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used and left the men’s toilet.

    Annoyed, he asks, ‘What took you so long and why is your bag hanging around your neck?

    This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with any
    public rest rooms/toilets (rest??? you’ve GOT to be kidding!!).

    It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long.
    It also answers that other commonly asked question
    about why women go to the toilets in pairs.

    It’s so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto
    your bag and hand you Kleenex under the door.


    This HAD to be written by a woman!

    No one else could describe it so accurately.

    Send this to all women that need a good laugh.

    A Friend Is Like A Good Bra…

    Hard to Find

    Supportive

    Comfortable

    Always Lifts You Up

    Never Lets You Down or Leaves You Hanging

    And Is Always Close To Your Heart!!!

    A family in New York began visiting shelters to look for the perfect pup.

    After a few weeks of searching local shelters, they found a puppy that they fell in love with ? Theo.

    He craved human friendship and attention.

    Three days after coming home with them, he joined their son Beau for his daily nap.

    Beau’s mother began taking "nap" pictures and now they are warming hearts around the world.

    Air Conditioning

    The Goldberg Brothers – The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner

    Here’s a little fact for automotive buffs, or just to dazzle your friends.

    The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946 , the temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.

    The four brothers walked into Henry Ford’s office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.

    Henry was curious and invited them into his office.

    They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.

    They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.

    The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

    The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, ‘The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,’ on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

    Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Jewish, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg’s name on two million Fords.

    They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.

    And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show —

    Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max — on the controls.

    Control yourself !!!!!

    Just forward it on .

    This is what happens when you are retired and have too much time on your hands
