Check your shampoo bottle label

Check your shampoo bottle label.

I don’t know WHY I didn’t figure this out sooner!  It’s the shampoo I use in the shower!  When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body and (duh!) printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning, FOR EXTRA VOLUME AND BODY!
No wonder I have been gaining weight! 
Well!  I have gotten rid of that shampoo and I am going to start using Dawn dish soap instead. Their label reads, DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE.
Problem solved!
If I don’t answer the phone, I’ll be in the shower!


1 + 2 = 3

Until a child tells you what they are thinking, we can’t even begin 
to imagine how their mind is working….
Little Zachary was doing very badly in math.
His parents had tried everything.. .tutors, mentors,
flash cards, special learning centers.
In short, everything they could think of to help his math.

Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and 
enrolled him In the local Catholic school. After the first day, 
little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He 
didn’t even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to 
his room and started studying.

Books and papers were spread out all over the room and little 
Zachary was hard at work. His mother was amazed. She called him 
down to dinner.

To her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room 
without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as 
hard as before.

This went on for some time, day after day, while the mother tried 
to understand what made all the difference.

Finally, little Zachary brought home his report Card.. He quietly 
laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books. With 
great trepidation, His Mom looked at it and to her great surprise, 
Little Zachary got an ‘A’ in math. She could no longer hold her 
curiosity.. She went to his room and said, ‘Son, what was it? Was 
it the nuns?’ Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no.. 
‘Well, then,’ she replied, Was it the books, the discipline, the 
structure, the uniforms? WHAT WAS IT?’

Little Zachary looked at her and said, ‘Well, on the first day of 
school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they 
weren’t fooling around.’ 

Happy New Year
