A Woman’s Place…Brilliant

Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind
Their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’

The woman looked Ms Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation
Said, “Land mines.”

Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go):

This is really hard to believe…
it’s amazing….
This just goes to prove that a Disability
does not have to make you disabled.

He lived at Rose Haven Nursing Home ( Roseburg , OR ) for years.
Paul Smith, the man with extraordinary talent was
born in Philadelphia on September 21, 1921 with severe
cerebral palsy.
Not only had Paul beaten the odds of a life with spastic
cerebral palsy, a disability that impeded his speech
and mobility but also taught himself to become a master
artist as well as a terrific chess player even after
being devoid of a formal education as a child.
“When typing, Paul used his left hand to steady his right one.
Since he couldn’t press two keys at the same time,
he almost always locked the shift key down and made
his pictures using the symbols at the top of the number keys.
In other words, his pictures were based on these characters…..

@ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _.

Across seven decades, Paul created hundreds of pictures.
He often gave the originals away.
Sometimes, but not always, he kept or received a copy
for his own records.
As his mastery of the typewriter grew, he developed
techniques to create shadings, colors, and textures
that made his work resemble pencil or charcoal drawings.”
This great artist passed away on June 25, 2007,
but left behind a collection of his amazing artwork
that will be an inspiration for many.

(These pictures are unbelievable.
Strange we should just now be hearing about him.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.)

Gotta love this one, eh?……………….

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has
to say about Canadians:

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from
September through May,
You may live in Canada .

If someone in a Home Depot store
Offers you assistance and they don’t work there,
You may live in Canada .

If you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
You may live in Canada .

If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation
With someone who dialled a wrong number,
You may live in Canada .

If ‘Vacation’ means going anywhere
South of Detroit for the weekend,
You may live in Canada .

If you measure distance in hours,
You may live in Canada .

If you know several people
Who have hit a deer more than once,
You may live in Canada .

If you have switched from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’
In the same day and back again,
You may live in Canada .

If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
During a raging blizzard without flinching,
You may live in Canada .

If you install security lights on your house and garage,
But leave both unlocked,
You may live in Canada .

If you carry jumper cables in your car
And your wife knows how to use them,
You may live in Canada .

If you design your kid’s Halloween costume
To fit over a snowsuit,
You may live in Canada .

If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km —
You’re going 95 and everybody is passing you,
You may live in Canada .

If driving is better in the winter
Because the potholes are filled with snow,
You may live in Canada .

If you know all 4 seasons:
Almost winter, winter, still winter,
and road construction,
You may live in Canada .

If you have more miles
On your snow blower than your car,
You may live in Canada .

If you find -2 degrees ‘a little chilly’,
You may live in Canada .

If you actually understand these jokes,
and forward them to all
your friends,

you definitely are Canadian and proud to be.
