Enchanted River is found in Philippines . It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

Poland has a forest full of bent pine trees (Crooked Forest).

Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went. I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the ‘natives’ (especially in the favelas) knew exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

Every home should have this! – The staircase slider.


The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration.
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia ‘s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.

A Christian

Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a church in Houston , Texas . Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change.. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, ‘You’d better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it.’ Then he thought, ‘Oh, forget it, it’s only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a ‘gift from God’ and keepquiet.’

When his stop came, he paused momentarily atthe door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, ‘Here,you gave me too much change …’

The driver, with a smile, replied, ‘Aren’t you the new preacher in town?’

‘Yes’ he replied.

‘Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I’ll see you at church on Sunday.’

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, heldon, and said, ‘Oh God, I almost sold your Son for a quarter.’

Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard — and remember — You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself’Christian.’

Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits..
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes yourdestiny.

I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as areminder. So, I choose to forward it to you – my friend. God bless you.

Rock balancing


Art Of Rock Balancing

Michael Grab is an artist who has been ‘rock balancing’ since 2008. Much of his recent work has been done around the Boulder , Colorado area. Grab—yes, that’s his real name—finds the process both spiritual and therapeutic.

Grab explains:

"The fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another.

Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise."

I was skeptical when first viewing these. But, I’ve seen the work of other ‘balancing’ artists, including outdoor installations by Andy Goldsworthy, subject of the 2001 documentary film, Rivers and Tides. As hard as it is to believe these examples photographed below are configured without support other than the rocks themselves, this is the case.

Moral of the story

Female Marine Pilot

The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories.

There were all the regular types of stuff: Spilled milk and pennies saved. But then the teacher realized, much to her dismay, that only Janie was left.

"Janie, do you have a story to share?"

‘Yes ma’am. My daddy told me a story about my Mommy. She was a Marine pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife.

She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn’t break, and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops. She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with the knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands."

”Good Heavens,’ said the horrified teacher. What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this horrible story?"

"Don’t mess with Mommy when she’s been drinking."

Another Great Sheriff

Looks like Florida has a Sheriff like Arizona has.

Polk County Florida Sheriff – “You kill a policeman it means no arrest …no Miranda rights …no negotiations nothing but as many bullets as we can shoot into you …PERIOD.”


An illegal alien, in Polk County, Florida, who got pulled over in a Routine traffic stop, ended up “executing” the deputy
who stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state-wide manhunt ensued.

The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area. As soon as he took a shot at the SWAT team, officers opened fire on him.
They hit the guy 68 times.

Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why
they had to shoot the poor, undocumented immigrant 68 times.

Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel: “Because
that’s all the ammunition we had.”

Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what!

The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes.

When asked by a reporter how that could be, since
there were 68 bullet wounds in his body, he simply replied:

(BEST QUOTE ever) …”When you are shot 68 times you are naturally gonna die.”

Another hidden tax

Another hidden tax, but thank God some places are going against the gov. and exposes it. Love Cabela’s.

Since when did fishing & hunting equipment become medical items to be taxed?

This is so crazy that it’s no wonder they tried to hide the stupidity.

Medical Excise Tax on Retail Receipts

This is an image of a sales receipt from Cabela’s, a popular sporting goods store.

“The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be ‘hidden’ from the consumer, but it’s been brought to the public’s attention by hunting and fishing store Cabela’s who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts,” the email states.

I did some research and found directly from the IRS’s website information that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden in Obamacare that I was not aware of!

Now being skeptical of this I went to the IRS website and found this:

Q1. What is the medical device excise tax?

A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.

Q2. When does the tax go into effect?

A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.

Q3. How much is the tax?

A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price.

IRS.govChapter Five

So being more curious I clicked on “Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510” And AHA! What do I find under “MEDICAL DEVICES” under “MANUFACTURERS TAXES”?

Manufacturers Taxes
The following discussion of manufacturers taxes applies to the tax on: Sport fishing equipment;
Fishing rods and fishing poles;
Electric outboard motors;
Fishing tackle boxes;
Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points;
Arrow shafts;
Taxable tires;
Gas guzzler automobiles; and Vaccines.

I think we have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health care.

It truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill

laden with a whole lot of taxes
that we the people have yet to be aware of!
