      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 08/22/08 - "Mental Feng Shui":

ALL RIGHT!! My absolutely most loved type of email and, while I'm at it, I'm also Elvis Presley! Hey, just hold on there, I've got a number of additional lies that I have yet to use. I did find an error in this "good luck" MIRACLE ("really, it really works") regarding the statement that this, ah, thing has been around the World "...ten times..."; that can't be right, I've received it at least 20 times myself.
Being the wonderful person that I am, don't believe it?, just ask me; I'll tell ya! Anyway, I could not in all good conscience fail to share with you all the wondrous things that are going to come you way if you just annoy as many people that you can, like I have, by forwarding the words of wisdom found below. Just imagine that you, yes YOU, can have everything for which your heart has ever had a desire!! Even chocolate!!
And that's not all! If you call in the next 10 minutes you will also receive, at no extra charge, something else just as useless; we'll think of something!
There are some "nice" statements contained within this thing, see if you can find them.

Mental Feng Shui

This is without a doubt one of the nicest good luck forwards I have received. Hope it works for you -- and me!

Lotus Touts: You have 6 minutes

There's some mighty fine advice in these words, even if you're not superstitious. This Lotus Touts has been sent to you for good luck from the Anthony Robbins organization. It has been sent around the world ten times so far.

Do not keep this message.

The Lotus Touts must leave your hands in 6 MINUTES. Otherwise you will get a very unpleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious, agnostic, or otherwise faith impaired.

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.

Now, here's the FUN part!

Send this to at least 5 people and your life will improve. 1-4 people: Your life will improve slightly.

5-9 people: Your life will improve to your liking.

9-14 people: You will have at least 5 surprises in the next 3 weeks.

15 and above: Your life will improve drastically and everything you ever dreamed of will begin to take shape.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

   Well, Wayne Honey, I just forwarded this message to well over 525 people! I will be the luckiest woman EVER! AND I shall be able to eat all the chocolate fudge I ever wanted, and not only not get much, much fatter, I'll not even become ILL from all that sugar! WHOO-HOO! Thanks so much, Sweetie! (Mmmm - CHOCOLATE!)

Where do old phones go?  Every one of these sheep is made from telephones and cords. Check out their feet!!!  

   Thanks, Mark! These are fabulous!


 From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 08/22/08 - " Get Ready to fly the flag":

Get Ready



On Thursday, September 11th, 2008, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States. Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this seventh anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies. We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds

Action Plan:

So, here's what we need you to do ..

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know. Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on  9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.

Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America!

   Thank you, Sarah Sugah! Y'all fly those flags!

Sounds like these should be on Jay Leno's Headlines...

Blue Suede Shoes

(Carl Perkins)

Well it's one for the money, two for the show,
Three to get ready, now go, cat, go.
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can knock me down, step on my face
Slander my name all over the place.
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh, honey, lay off of my shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

You can burn my house, you can steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh, honey, lay off of my shoes
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well it's one for the money, two for the show,
Three to get ready, now go, cat, go
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well it's blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes yeh!
Well blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.
