Leadership Notes Lite

Where do bad rainbows go? Prism. But don't worry…it's a light sentence.


It would be crazy to believe in a literal 7 day creation.


When a little boy was six-years-old, he got a pair of pants for Christmas. Through tears, he complained, "You're supposed to get me these anyway!" What's the worst gift you ever received for Christmas?


A wise person once said, "The fewer things you have, the fewer things you need to dust."


The man who invented the Ferris Wheel {Mr. Wheel} never met the man who invented the Merry-go-Round {Mr. go-Round}…they traveled in different circles.

I love this observation by an informed film buff:


In the film "Gravity," George Clooney is hanging onto a tether and insists

Sandra Bullock cut him loose to save herself. This is complete nonsense as

there is no physical force pulling him away. With the slight tug on the

tether, he would have floated over to her. It's a monumental plot hole. The

director got an Oscar when he should have been imprisoned.


I feel his frustration. One time, I walked into the living room when an episode of "7th Heaven" was on. It was a late 1990s series about a pastor and his family. In this episode, it's Easter morning, the sun bright and shining, as the pastor joins his family for breakfast. After breakfast, he and his large brood walk next door to the church. He strolls up the center aisle of the sanctuary to ascend the pulpit, as worship begins. The people responsible for that episode ought to join the director of "Gravity" in prison!


According to The Scientist {a professional magazine intended for life scientists}, "Male placentas produce more proinflammatory molecules than female placentas, while pregnant people carrying male fetuses produce fewer antibodies in response to infection." If you don't see the humor in that, you read it wrong.


A man's six-year-old daughter walked into his office. "Daddy! I lost a tooth!" "That's irresponsible. You should go find it." "Oh, Daddy, I love it when you do your jokes." She's now his favorite child, he says.


Speaking of humor, one man observes:


The only society worth living in is one in which there's a chance

your deepest feelings may be trodden on. It's how you know it's a

free society.


The best television sitcom Thanksgiving episode of all time aired November 22, 1978, in which a radio station held its First Annual Turkey Drop, in which this line was spoken:


"As God Is My Witness, I Thought Turkeys Could Fly."


Can you name that sitcom? For bragging rights, complete the next sentence - "The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of ____ ______."


Did you know that Karl Marx's lesser known sister, Onya, invented the starting pistol?


Before I see myself out, I leave you with a heartfelt "Happy Thanksgiving," and your Moment of Spurgeon:


The present age is so flippant that if a man loves the Savior he is a

fanatic, and if he hates the powers of evil he is a bigot.


With Much Love and Affection,


Richard


P.S. - "And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done."
