Amy Winehouse died from not drinking?

Amy Winehouse's family believes that quitting alcohol cold turkey precipitated the singer's recent death, according to the British tabloid theSun. Toxicology reports won't be ready for at least two weeks, but most observers have assumed that she suffered from a drug overdose of some kind. Can you really die fromnot drinking?

The Great Will Rogers

LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST AND LEARN AS IF YOU WOULD LIVE FOREVER

"Never squat while wearing your spurs"





















Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the

greatest political sages this country has ever known.

Enjoy the following:
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.


2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.


3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman.

Neither works.


4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.


5. Always drink upstream from the herd.


6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.


7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it

and put it back into your pocket.


8. There are three kinds of men:

The ones that learn by reading.

The few who learn by observation.

The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence

and find out for themselves.


9. Good judgment comes from experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.


10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then

to make sure it's still there.


11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.


12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.

He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.

The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


ABOUT GROWING OLDER...

First ~Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying

about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers.

Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way.

I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,

think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging

is that it's such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks,

it was called witchcraft.

Today it's called golf.

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble,

you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old

DRINK SCOTCH WHISKY:SAVE THE EARTH!!
















When Scotch whisky is distilled, it leaves behind two main waste products — a liquid called pot ale and draff, the remains of the grains used in the distilling method. These two waste products are being used by researchers at Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland to create a new biofuel.

According to the Guardian, the Scottish have a £4 billion ($6.2 billion) a year whisky habit, and that habit leaves “copious quantities” of both pot ale and draff that in the past has gone unused. This biofuel can be used in regular cars — meaning there’s no need to adapt the engine as there is with some other biofuels. Researchers also say it's possible the biofuel could be used to fuel planes.

The biofuel, called butanol, gives 30 percent more power output than ethanol. With ethanol, corn crops are specifically grown to produce the biofuel. With the whisky waste butanol, no new crops are necessary. The grains grown for the Scotch whisky become the grains used in the biofuel, making this new type of biofuel more environmentally sustainable.

DRINK UP!!!!!



















Surprised? The tightly controlled study, which looked at individuals between ages 55 and 65, spanned a 20-year period and accounted for variables ranging from socioeconomic status to level of physical activity. Led by psychologist Charles Holahan of the University of Texas at Austin, it found that mortality rates were highest for those who had never had a sip, lower for heavy drinkers, and lowest for moderate drinkers who enjoyed one to three drinks per day.

Wicked Rumble On The Strip

3.8% SALES TAX WHEN YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE?

WILL YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE AFTER 2012?
This Is True
Will you ever sell your house after 2012? Call your Democratic Senator's Office to confirm this hidden fact about the ObamaCare regulation.
Will you ever sell your house after 2012?
Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc.
When did this happen? It's in the health care bill. Just thought you should know.
SALES TAX GOES INTO EFFECT 2013 (Part of HC Bill). Why 2013? Could it be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections?
REAL ESTATE SALES TAX
So, this is "change you can believe in"?
Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax. The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Does this stuff make your November and 2012 vote more important?
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either

I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book. VOTERS NEED TO KNOW.

State Gas Tax

Seniors, Don't Leave Your Glasses At Home

Yesterday my daughter asked
why I didn't do something useful
with my time.





She suggested I go down to the
senior center and hang out
with the guys.


I did this and when I got home
last night I told her that I
had joined a parachute club.



She said "Are you nuts?
You're almost 75 years old and
you're going to start
jumping out of airplanes?"



I proudly showed her that I even
got a membership card.



She said to me, "You idiot, where
are your glasses! This is
a membership to a Prostitute
Club, not a Parachute Club!"


I'm in trouble again and don't know
what to do! I signed
up for five jumps a week!



Life as a senior citizen is not
getting any easier.

THE SNEEZE

THE SNEEZE


They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.



Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms freely brushed away tears.



This class would NOT pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it.





The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.



The speeches were nice, but they were routine until the final speech received a standing ovation.



A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened.



All 92 students, every single one of them, suddenly SNEEZED!!!!








The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said,



'GOD BLESS YOU'

And he walked off the stage...



The audience exploded into applause. This graduating class had found a unique way to invoke God's blessing on their future with or without the court's approval.


Isn't this a wonderful story? Pass it on to all your friends.........and



GOD BLESS YOU!!!!



This is a true story; it happened at Eastern Shore District High School in Musquodoboit Harbour , Nova Scotia
.

I hope this goes around Canada ...and the USA ....and the rest of the world!!!

Another What Is An American

VIETNAMESE IMMIGRANT
On Saturday, July
24th, 2010 the town of Prescott Valley, AZ,
hosted a Freedom Rally. Quang Nguyen was
asked to speak on his experience of coming
to America and what it means. He spoke
the following in dedication to all Vietnam
Veterans. Thought you might enjoy hearing
what he had to say:
Thirty-five years ago,
if you were to tell me that I am going to
stand up here speaking to a couple
thousand patriots, in English, I'd laugh at
you. Man, every morning I wake up thanking
God for putting me and my family in the
greatest country on earth.
I just want you all to
know that the American dream does exist and
I am living the American dream. I was
asked to speak to you about my experience as
a first generation Vietnamese- American,
but I'd rather speak to you as an
American.
If you hadn't
noticed, I am not white and I feel pretty
comfortable with my people.
I am a proud US
citizen and here is my proof. It took me 8
years to get it, waiting in endless lines,
but I got it and I am very proud of it.
I still remember the
images of the Tet offensive in 1968, I was
six years old. Now you might want to
question how a 6-year-old boy could
remember anything. Trust me; those images
can never be erased. I can't even imagine
what it was like for young American
soldiers, 10,000 miles away from home,
fighting on my behalf.
35 years ago, I left
South Vietnam for political asylum. The war
had ended. A t the age of 13, I left with
the understanding that I may or may not
ever get to see my siblings or parents
again. I was one of the first lucky
100,000 Vietnamese allowed to come to the
US. Somehow, my family and I were reunited
5 months later, amazingly, in California. It
was a miracle from God.
If you haven't heard
lately that this is the greatest country on
earth, I am telling you that right now. It
was the freedom and the opportunities
presented to me that put me here with all
of you tonight. I also remember the
barriers that I had to overcome every step
of the way. My high school counselor told
me that I cannot make it to college due to
my poor communication skills. I proved him
wrong. I finished college. You see, all you
have to do is to give this little boy an
opportunity and encourage him to take and
run with it. Well, I took the opportunity
and here I am.
This person standing
tonight in front of you could not exist
under a socialist/communist environment. By
the way, if you think socialism is the way
to go, I am sure many people here will chip
in to get you a one-way ticket out of here.
And if you didn't know, the only difference
between socialism and communism is an
AK-47 aimed at your head. That was my
experience.
In 1982, I stood with
a thousand new immigrants, reciting the
Pledge of Allegiance and listening to the
National Anthem for the first time as an
American. To this day, I can't remember
anything sweeter and more patriotic than
that moment in my life.
Fast forwarding,
somehow I finished high school, finished
college, and like any other goofball 21
year old kid, I was having a great time with
my life. I had a nice job and a nice
apartment in Southern California. In some
way and somehow, I had forgotten how I got
here and why I was here.
One day I was at a gas
station, I saw a veteran pumping gas on the
other side of the island. I don't know
what made me do it, but I walked over and
asked if he had served in Vietnam. He
smiled and said yes. I shook and held his
hand. The grown man began to well up. I
walked away as fast as I could and at that
very moment, I was emotionally rocked. This
was a profound moment in my life. I knew
something had to change in my life. It was
time for me to learn how to be a good
citizen. It was time for me to give back.
You see, America is
not a place on the map, it isn't a
physical location. It is an ideal, a
concept. And if you are an American, you
must understand the concept, you must buy
into this concept, and most importantly,
you have to fight and defend this concept.
This is about Freedom and not free
stuff.And that is why I am standing up
here.
Brothers and sisters,
to be a real American, the very least you
must do is to learn English and understand
it well. In my humble opinion, you cannot be
a faithful patriotic citizen if you can't
speak the language of the country you live
in. Take this document of 46 pages - last I
looked on the Internet, there wasn't a
Vietnamese translation of the US
Constitution. It took me a long time to
get to the point of being able to converse
and until this day, I still struggle to
come up with the right words. It's not
easy, but if it's too easy, it's not worth
doing.
Before I knew this
46-page document, I learned of the 500,000
Americans who fought for this little boy.
I learned of the 58,000 names scribed on
the black wall at the Vietnam Memorial.
You are my heroes. You are my founders.
At this time, I would
like to ask all the Vietnam veterans to
please stand. I thank you for my life. I
thank you for your sacrifices, and I thank
you for giving me the freedom and liberty I
have today. I now ask all veterans,
firefighters, and police officers, to
please stand. On behalf of all first
generation immigrants, I thank you for
your services and may God bless you all.

Notice that he
referred to himself as an American, NOT
Vietnamese-American. How good it would be
here in America if all of the immigrants
-- no, EVERYONE -- felt like Quang Nguyen.

More Suthen-ism's:

Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and aconniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them, you

"PITCH" them.

Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc..., make up "a mess."

Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of"yonder."

Only a Southerner knows exactly how long "directly" is, as in: "Going to town, be back directly."

Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of the table..

All Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.

Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large

banana puddin!

Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near"and " a right far piece." They also know that "just down the road" can be 1 mile or 20

Only a Southerner, both knows and understands, the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and Po white trash.

No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.

A Southerner knows that "fixin" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an

adverb.

Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines, ... And when we're "in line,"... We talk to everybody!

Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, even if only by marriage.

In the South, y'all is singular, all y'all is plural.

Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them.

Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.

When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin'," you know you are

in the presence of a genuine Southerner!

Only true Southerners say "sweet tea" and "sweet milk." Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our tea unsweetened "Sweet milk" means you don't

want buttermilk.

And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway.. You just say ,"Bless her heart" ... And go your own way.

To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning. Bless your heart!

And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff, .... bless your hearts, I hear they are fixin' to have classes on Southernness

as a second language!

Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah !

Now... Shugah, send this to someone who was raised in the South or wish they had been! If you're a Northern transplant, bless your little heart, fake it.

We know you got here as fast as you could
