Money


I met money one day.

I said, “You are just a piece of paper.”

Money smiled and said,
“Of course I’m a piece of paper, but I haven’t seen a dust-bin yet, in my life”

Outsourcing Explained


And how Indians grab the deals…

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C.


One from Bangladesh , another from India, and the third from China .


They go with a White House official to examine the fence.


The Bangladesh contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. “Well”, he says, “I figure the job will run about $900. ($400 for materials, $400 for my team and $100 profit for me)”.


The Chinese contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. ($300 for materials, $300 for my team and $100 profit for me)”.


The Indian contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”


The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”


The Indian contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from China to fix the fence.”


“Done!” replies the government official.

Search


A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.

“Hello ? ”

“Is your daddy home?” he asked.

” Yes ,” whispered the small voice.

“May I talk with him?”

The child whispered, ” No .”


Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mommy there?”

“Yes .”

“May I talk with her?” Again the small voice whispered, ” No .”


Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, “Is anybody else there?”

” Yes ,” whispered the child, ” a policeman .”

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”

” No, he’s busy , ” whispered the child.

“Busy doing what?”

” Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ,” came the whispered answer.


Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”

” A helicopter ” answered the whispering voice.

“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again, whispering, the child answered, ” The search team just landed a helicopter .”


Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle…

” ME .”……….

End of month review : Books

AWESOME!!

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: Unbelievable! Every line had me hooked with suspense. Humor amidst all the ongoing thrill made me love this book even more!  A definite read in one’s lifetime 🙂

Double Exposure: Mcnaught takes a simple concept and weaves a fairytale out of it. Makes a sweet read after a tired long day 🙂

OTHERS:

Oliver Twist: Painful. I didn’t like it.

Miracles:  Cliché . But I loved the ending 🙂

Missing


Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were extremely mischievous.

They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew all about it. If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.

The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly,
“Do you know where God is?” son!

The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?!”

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “Where is God?!”

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, “What happened?”

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time!!

GOD is missing, and they think we did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

An email from an Arab student to his dad


Arab student sends an e-mail to his Dad saying:

Dear Dad,

Berlin is wonderful, people are nice and I really like it here. But dad, I am a bit ashamed to arrive at my college with my solid gold Ferrari 599 GTB, when all my teachers and friends travel by train.

Your Son

Nasser

—————————————————-

Sometime later Nasser gets reply to his e-mail from his Dad:

Loving son,

Twenty Million Dollars transferred to your account, please stop embarrassing us, go and get yourself a train too.

Your Dad

To the designer in me ^_^

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! ^_^

May the New Year bless you with health, wealth and happiness.


May your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want


May the new year see you loving, giving and living!


May your challenges accumulate and your ability to overcome them increase exponentially ^_^


May this be a year of trust for you – a year where you trust yourself, others and life itself more than ever.


May you actually achieve your New Year’s resolutions, instead of flaking out within the first few weeks like every year past.


May you deal with hardship and trial the same way you deal with success and happiness.


May the dawning of this New Year open up new horizons and bring you brighter tomorrows.
May you choose this year to empower yourself.


May you learn how to relax your troubled, overworked mind into presence and awareness, so you can detach from negative circumstances, and change your life for the better.


May you know the wisdom of deep listening,
the healing of wholesome words,
the encouragement of the appreciative gaze,
and the decorum of held dignity.


May you find peace and joy in the knowledge that you are following your heart and doing the right thing every day.


May you have the courage to stop doing what you think other people want you to do and start doing what is right for you because your heart tells you so.


When someone fails or disappoints you,
May the graciousness with which you engage
be their stairway to renewal and refinement.


May your conscience be white and your way of life be green!!

~ Sakura ^_^
