From a Mother in Austin, Texas…
Things I’ve learned from my boys (honest and not kidding)

A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

A 3-year old Boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 x 20 ft. room.

You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh”, it’s already too late.

Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.

Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year-old Boy.

Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

Super glue is forever.

No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.

Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

VCRs do not eject “PB &J” sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

The fire department in Austin, TX, has a 5-minute response time.

The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy. It will, however, make cats dizzy. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

Those who pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without boys do it because

a) For those with no children – this is totally hysterical!

b) For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious.

c) For those who have children this age, this is not funny.

d) For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.

e) For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control

This is a fascinating question for many Americans who give money to charity. The following information is found in FORBES Magazine 2014 Investment Guide, p. 36

Charity CEO Compensation

United Way $1.5 Million
Salvation Army $250,000
Task Force For Global Health $320,000
Feeding America $431,000
Catholic Charities USA $354,000
Goodwill Industries International $725,000
Food For The Poor $411,000
American Cancer Society $832,000
YMCA $501,000
World Vision $457,000

WOW! Should the leader of CHARITIES make so much money when it is given to take care of the needs of the underprivileged? To be honest, this makes me rethink my giving. Do I want my hard earned dollars to support an extravagant lifestyle of one individual. This does not say how much those under the CEO makes. I would imagine that the total would stagger us.

Just for your information during this Christmas season of giving to charity.
