A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories.|
As I enjoy 2 servings per night, and a few more on weekends.
I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals one pound of weight per week.
Therefore... in the last 3 1/2 years, I have had chocolate caloric intake of about 180 pounds, and I only weigh 165 pounds, so...
without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing about 3 months ago!
I owe my life to chocolate.
|A man lies in bed, slowly slipping in and our of consciousness after spending three months in a coma as the result of a traffic accident. Each time he drifts back to consciousness, he sees his loving wife sitting beside the bed. On time, he drifts a little more to consciousness for long enough to speak to his wife. He says, "You have been with me through all the bad times. When I was laid off, you were there, when our child almost died, you were there. When the plane crashed, you were there. You were there for the bankruptcy and when I was sick. You were there when I had the accident that put me in this hospital bed. You were there through all the bad times."His wife smiles at his recognition of her devotion. He adds, "I finally realize, you're bad luck."|
Socialism is where you have two cows and give one to your neighbor.|
Communism is where you have two cows, the government takes both and gives you milk.
Fascism is where you have two cows, the government takes both and sells you milk.
Naziism is where you have two cows, the government takes both and shoots you.
Bureaucracy is where you have two cows, the government takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and dumps the milk down the drain.
Capitalism is where you have two cows, you sell one and buy a bull.

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE PLAN.|
AND THEN CAME THE ASSUMPTIONS.
AND THE ASSUMPTIONS WERE WITHOUT FORM.
AND THE PLAN WAS WITHOUT SUBSTANCE.
AND DARKNESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE WORKERS.
AND THEY SPOKE AMONGST THEMSELVES, SAYING, "IT IS A CROCK OF SHIT, AND IT STINKETH."
AND THE WORKERS WENT UNTO THEIR SUPERVISORS AND SAID, "IT IS A PAIL OF DUNG, AND NONE MAY ABIDE THE ODOR THEREOF."
AND THE SUPERVISORS WENT UNTO THEIR MANAGERS, SAYING, "IT IS A CONTAINER OF EXCREMENT, AND IT IS VERY STRONG, SUCH THAT NONE MAY ABIDE BY IT."
AND THE MANAGERS WENT UNTO THEIR DIRECTORS, SAYING, "IT IS A VESSEL OF FERTILIZER, AND NONE MAY ABIDE ITS STRENGTH."
AND THE DIRECTORS SPOKE AMONGST THEMSELVES, SAYING ONE TO ANOTHER, "IT CONTAINS THAT WHICH AIDS PLANT GROWTH, AND IT IS VERY STRONG."
AND THE DIRECTORS THEN WENT UNTO THE VICE PRESIDENTS, SAYING UNTO THEM, "IT PROMOTES GROWTH, AND IT IS VERY POWERFUL."
AND THE VICE PRESIDENTS WENT UNTO THE PRESIDENT, SAYING UNTO HIM, "THIS NEW PLAN WILL ACTIVELY PROMOTE THE GROWTH AND VIGOR OF THE COMPANY, WITH POWERFUL EFFECTS."
AND THE PRESIDENT LOOKED UPON THE PLAN- AND SAW THAT IT WAS GOOD.
AND THE PLAN BECAME POLICY.
THIS IS HOW SHIT HAPPENS
|So you want the day off. Let's take a look at what you are asking for. There are 365 days per year available for work There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have two days off per week, leaving 261 days: available for work. Since you spend 16 hours. each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available. You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break. That accounts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days, available. With a one hour lunch period each day, you have used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work. You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave. This leaves you only 20 days available for work. We are off for 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. We generously give you 14 days vacation per year which leaves only 1 day available for work and I'll be damned if you're going to take that day off!!!!!|

|A very old monk was assigned to go over old writings and verify that there were no errors in the translation of the Bible. After years of research, another monk went into the depths of the basement to see how the first monk was coming with his research. The first monk was crying and the second monk asked why. The first monk said, "Its celebrate not celibate."|

Once while Jesus was performing miracles, an adulterous woman was brought before him. As a test, the clerics asked what should be done with the woman. Had Jesus said "Let her go" the clerics would have used this violation of law against him. Had he said "Stone her" it would have proven that he didn't have the compassion he was noted for having. |
Jesus responded "Let the person without sin cast the first stone." He expected everyone to walk away as everyone has sin. Instead, a little Jewish woman pick up a rock and threw it at the woman. Everyone else joined in and stoned the woman to death. After the crowd left, Jesus was bewildered that the message had been lost.
Jesus turned to the woman who threw the first stone and said, "Mom, I told you not to interfere with my work." *
*Jesus' mother, Mary, is believed to be the only person without sin.

For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. Only recently I tried advertising as a way to balance the budget, but it still doesn't cover the costs.
