Weekly Quote   - Money can’t buy love, but it improves your bargaining position.” – Christopher Marlowe

 

 

Did You Know ? - Vampire bats do exist, but they are not from Transylvania. The common vampire bat is found in the tropics of Mexico, Central America, and South America.

 

 

Weekly Laughs - Occasionally, a true friend gives his paw not his hand… - Behind every angry woman is a man who has absolutely no idea what he did wrong. - I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it. - Intelligence is like an underwear. It is important that you have it, but not necessary that you show it off. -Just asked your husband if he remembers what today is... Scaring men is easy. - Maybe if we start telling people the brain is an app they will start using it. - Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot. - You take away the looks, money, intelligence, charm and success and, really, there's no real difference between me and George Clooney. - The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. - TRUE FRIENDSHIP: Walking into a persons house and your wifi connects automatically - I changed my password to "incorrect". So whenever I forget what it is the computer will say "Your password is incorrect". - Why is the road to success is always under construction. -Why is the day that you do laundry, cook, clean, iron and so on, called a day off? - Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. ................................ That’s it !............- Hope you enjoyed them ………… till next week !

 

 

Extra Joke ! - I wonder if you can make a water-bed more bouncy by using spring water ??

 

 

Trivia  Answer - Festivus entered popular culture after it was made the focus of the 1997 Seinfeld episode called "The Strike". The holiday's celebration includes a Festivus dinner, practices such as the "Airing of Grievances", and the labeling of easily explainable events as "Festivus miracles".

 

  That’s it for this week, Be Safe and Be Well !
