U.K. Couple Marks 80th Wedding Anniversary
LONDON (AP) - A British husband and wife revealed the secrets of the longest marriage of any living couple on Wednesday as they celebrated their 80th wedding anniversary - don't sleep on an argument, always share a kiss and hold hands before going to bed.

Percy Arrowsmith, 105, and his 100-year-old wife Florence, were married on June 1, 1925, after meeting at their local church in Hereford, western England, where he sang in the choir and she was a Sunday school teacher.

Queen Elizabeth II sent her congratulations to the Arrowsmiths, who celebrated their anniversary Wednesday with coffee and nibbles at home with family and friends.

``What a splendid achievement. I send you my warm congratulations and best wishes for your 80th wedding anniversary,'' the Queen wrote in a card to the couple.

The Arrowsmiths, who have three children, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, claim the key to their long marriage is not to go to sleep on an argument. They say they always kiss each other and hold hands each night before going to bed.

``He can't settle down if I'm not holding his hand,'' Mrs. Arrowsmith was quoted as saying last month.

The couple's daughter Jane Woolley said her parents were both ``very perky.''

``She (Mrs. Arrowsmith) says she can't dance any longer but it feels good to have been married for 80 years. She says she can still have a drink,'' Woolley said.

Guinness World Records said the pair held records for the longest marriage for a living couple and the oldest aggregate age of a married couple.




TO START YOUR DAY WITH POSITIVE OUTLOOK

6. Answer calmly, "Yes," and press the mouse button
   firmly....

HOW TO STAY YOUNG


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.

Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.



2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down. (keep this In mind if you are one of those grouches;)



3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain get idle.
"An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!



4. Enjoy the simple things.



5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and Lots of time with HIM/HER.


6. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is yourself. LIVE while you are alive.



7. Surround yourself with what you love:
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.



8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
if it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.



9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.



10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Subject: TWO LETTER WORD - with many meanings


 


 
Lovers of the English language will enjoy this.....


There is a two letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two letter word, and that is "UP."

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?

We call UP our friends And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.

At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.   And this UP is confusing:

A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions .

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets UP the earth.


When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP,
for now my time is UP, so.............

Time to shut UP.....!

Oh...one more thing:
What is the first thing you do in the morning & the last thing you do at night? -------

U P

       Subject: Advice











      1. Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.




      2. Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you
can carry easily.



      3. Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where
you've been, but also where you are going.



      4. Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is
to hold it too tightly, and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.



      5. Don't be afraid to encounter risk. It is by taking chances that we
learn how to be brave.



      6. Don't be afraid to admit you are less than perfect. It is this
fragile thread that binds us together.



      7. Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is
really over until the moment you stop trying.



      8. Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past
or future. By living our life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of
your life.



      9. Don't take for granted the closest things to your heart. Cling to
them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.



      10. Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you
know what is best for you.



      11. Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It
is because we are different that each of us is special.

JULY 15TH:

RECEIVED THESE EMAILS:

This explains why we forward jokes:


A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.


He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.


After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.



When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.


When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?"


"This is Heaven, sir," the man answered.


"Wow! Would you happen to have some
water?" the man asked.


"Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up."


The man gestured, and the gate began to open.


"Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler asked.


"I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets."


The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.


After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. There was no fence.


As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book.


"Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have any water?"


"Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in."


"How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog.


"There should be a bowl by the pump."


They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it.


The traveler filled the water bowl and set it down for the dog to lap while he quenched his thirst from the pump.


When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.


"What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.


"This is Heaven," he answered.


"Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too."


"Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell."


"Doesn't it bother you for them to use your name like that?"


"No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind."


Soooo...


Sometimes, we wonder why friends keep forwarding jokes to us without writing a word.


Maybe this will explain.


When we are very busy, but still want to keep in touch, guess what we do? We forward jokes.


When we have nothing to say, but still want to keep contact, we forward jokes.


When we have something to say, but don't know what, and don't know how, we forward jokes.


Also to let you know that you are still remembered, you are still important, you are still loved, you are still cared for, guess what you get?


A forwarded joke.


So, next time you receive a forwarded joke, don't think that you've been sent just another thoughtless e-mail, but that you've been remembered today and your friend on the other end of your computer wanted to send you a smile.


You are welcome @ my water bowl anytime

The Secret of a Happy Marriage
 
  A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared
everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets  from
each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of  her
closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her  about.
For all of these years, he had never  thought about the box, but one day the
little old woman got very sick and the  doctor said she would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the  little old man took down the shoe box
and took it to his wife's  bedside.  She agreed that it was time that he should  know what was in the box. When he
opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a  stack of money totaling $25,000.
He asked her about the contents. "When  we were to be married," she
said, "my grandmother told me the secret of a  happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with  you, I should just keep quiet and
crochet a doll."
The little old man was so  moved, he had to fight back
tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She  had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving.  He almost burst with
happiness.  "Honey," he said, "that explains the doll, but  what about all of this
money?  Where did it come  from?"
"Oh," she said, "that's the money I made from  selling the  dolls."

-------------------------------------------------------------


A Prayer For Wives
Dear Lord, I pray for:
Wisdom  to understand my husband;
Love to forgive him;
And Patience for his moods;
Because  Lord, if I pray for Strength, 
I'll beat him to  death.                       
Amen!

A Beautiful Idea:

Today I will delete from my diary

 two days: yesterday and tomorrow

Yesterday was to learn

and tomorrow will be the consequence

of what I can do today.

           

Today I will face life
with the conviction that this day
will not ever return.



Today is the last opportunity
I have to live intensely,
as no one can assure me
 that I will see tomorrow's sunrise.

               

Today I will be brave enough
not to let any opportunity pass me by,
                my only alternative is to succeed.

     

Today I will invest

my most valuable resource:my time,

 in the most trascendental work:
 my life;

                         

I will spend each minute
 passionately to make
of today a different
 and unique day in my life.

                     

                     Today I will defy every obstacule
                     that appears on my way trusting
                      I will succeed.

                       
   Today I will resist

pesimism and will conquer

              the world with a smile,
              with the positive attitude

                of expecting always the best.


        Today I will make of every ordinary task
a sublime _expression,

           
    Today I will have my feet on the ground

understanding reality

 and the stars' gaze

  to invent my future.





Today I will take the time to be happy
and will leave my footprints and my presence

in the hearts of others.





           
Today,  I invite you to begin a new season

where we can dream

that everything we undertake is possible

and we fulfil it,

 with joy and dignity.

{SMILE}  Have a good day and a better one tomorrow!

Hi: Received these emails , sharing them with you.

Lenore
July 25th


      These are so funny!!




              
            TRUISMS

            A good time to keep your mouth shut is when
            you're in deep water.



            Anyone who thinks old age is golden must not
            have had a very exciting youth.



            How come it takes so little time for a child
            who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager
            who wants to stay out all night?



            Business conventions are important because
            they demonstrate how many people a company
            can operate without.



            Why is it that at class reunions you feel
            younger than everyone else looks?



            Scratch a dog and you'll find a permanent job.



            No one has more driving ambition than the
            boy who wants to buy a car



            There are no new sins....the old ones just get
            more publicity.



            There are worse things than getting a call for
            a wrong number at 4 AM.  It could be a right
            number.



            No one ever says "It's only a game" when
            their team is winning.



            How come we choose from just two people
            for president and 50 for Miss America?



            Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness
            will make him wag his tail.



            One of the quickest ways for a young man
            to fail in life is to work so hard the boss will
            think he's after his job



            If you don't have a sense of humor, you
            probably don't have any sense at all.



            Seat belts are not as confining as wheelchairs.



            You know you're old when you reach down
            to get the wrinkles out of your  panty hose
            and realize you aren't wearing any.



            I've reached the age where the happy hour
            is a nap.

It was too cute not to share.

To all my brothers and sisters in the Lord on this website.

I share this with you.

Please ENJOY!

You have just been hugged!!
That's right, there's no getting out of it this time!! This is the start of a full-scale Hug O' War! So hug everyone you know!!!


Hug your friends, your enemies, everyone!! With all the other forwards out there, I thought this would be a good one to start. The hug is my favorite sign of affection. It can mean so much, and so many things at the same time. It can be a sign of love, friendship, comfort or anything.

So here you go.
All I can say it will do is brighten someone's day. I mean, we all need a hug once in a while. So send this on if you'd like, to anyone who may need a hug, and (I hope you will) send it back to me!!!

Goodness knows, we could all REALLY use a hug sometimes.

That's for sure anytime is good for me.

Hello Friends,

Burt O'Leary here. A year ago I published a continuation on a series of books I had
which began with "Quote Isaiah One" and ended at "Quote Isaiah 39". I got the idea
for "Quote Isaiah 2" shortly after having written "Quote Isaiah One". And the ideas
kept coming until I had written 39 wonderful books about quoting Isaiah which literally
benefited thousands of people.

Well, I have just published another book called "Quote Scripture and get what you want,
anytime you want it". The concepts follow very closely with the Isaiah series of books, but I
believe the results garnered from using this book will be even greater than the other 39
books combined. Some copies were sent out to people and here are the astounding responses
we have received:

"Dear Burt,  The book you sent was wonderful, and has truly helped me in many ways. I took
the advice you gave in Chapter 2, while waiting in line at College to enroll for some courses I
wanted. The line was so long I thought it was going to take several hours, but then I started
using the method you introduced in your book. I began waving my arms frantically, and opened
my eyes widely with a scary type of gaze,  and began to quote from Thessalonians and the damn-
ation that awaits the unbelieving. People literally moved aside as though the Red Sea had parted,
and I was quickly to the front of the line in no time. I literally had the pick of any class I wanted,
and this because of the wonderful techniques taught in your book. Thanks so much Burt!!"

"Burt, you're a God-send. I went to the opening of a movie I wanted to see badly. But I got to the
theater too late, and the line I was in stretched around the corner of the block. I was literally forlorn
beyond belief. But then I remembered the technique you mentioned in Chapter 3 of your wonderful
book "Quote Scripture, and get what you want anytime you want it". I began tearing at my clothes
wildly, crying out in the deepest grief I could muster, and began quoting several verses about grief and despair. The people literally felt so sorry for me, that one after one, they let me pass ahead of them. Very soon I was very near the front of the line, and made it in for the first showing. Your book and it's techniques are literally a miracle for those afflicted such as I was. Thanks Burt."

Jim Passoni
Oakland, California

"Burt, Thanks so much. Being a Catholic, I have to go to confession. Sometimes the sessions with the priest are very time-consuming, and the list of my sins goes on and on. It can literally take over
45 minutes to get through with the session. But this last time I remembered Chapter 6 and the technique of being possessed. I began to scream and shake violently, and yelled out "You shall call no man "father" on earth!!!!". The priest gave me 15 "Our Fathers" and 12 "Hail Mary's" for my penance faster than you can say Jack Frost. Your techniques really work!! Thanks so much Mr. O'Leary!!"

I remember it quite clearly. It all started because of a gopher that had somehow wound up in our yard and was causing little hills of dirt to pile up here and there in the grass. I tried to gun the poor thing down with a BB gun. I tried to sneak up on it as it bobbed it's head out of the hole from time to time and whack it with a shovel. I even tried to poison it by putting arsenic soaked seeds into it's hole. Nothing seemed to work. And then I thought "Why not just dig and follow the tunnel it makes and corner it?"

So I started digging. I dug and dug and dug with no success. The tunnel just seemed to go on
and on and on, and strangely, it began to get larger in size. Soon I didn't need to dig at all as I was
able to stoop down and walk along, following the hole, which seemed to be getting deeper the
farther I got into it. I walked for miles and miles. Then, a very strange thing happened. I saw the
shadowy figure of a person up ahead. Soon I came upon the man walking in my direction. He said
"I rooking fol Los Angeles, You know how I find?" He was Chinese. I pointed back from where I had come and he nodded happily. He gave me a large container of Chicken Chow Mein he had with him, and it was my provision until I eventually came out of the tunnel in Beijing, China.

I never found out what happened to that gopher, but in many ways I am thankful because I had always wanted to visit China, but never had the funds. I was able to make the journey on my own, with the help of an old chinese gentleman, who is now a Producer of movies in Hollywood. He has a movie in the works entitled "The Tunnel". I can't wait to see what it is all about. Oh well, I just thought I'd share this with you, and ask that you be kind to gophers, because they really don't mean anyone any harm.

GA.com received the following feedback today. Just thought I'd pass it along in case someone wants to take up the suggestion.

"You folks might be interested in starting a discussion thread on http://www.factnet.org/cgi-bin/discus/discus.cgi.  We have a thread under "Robert A. Grove Ministries, Inc.", which has assemblies in SLO, Tulare, Sacramento, LA, Riverside, San Diego, Fort Worth, and four assemblies in Virginia; all from which we are refugees."
