one glass of milk

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to  door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a
drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly,
and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness."

He said..."Then I thank you from my heart."

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was
strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year's later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her
to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a
strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the
consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to
the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill
to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her
room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally
she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill.

She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk"
Dr. Howard Kelly

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, God, that Your love has spread
abroad through human hearts and hands."


Now you have two choices:

You can send this page on and spread a positive message.

A Car Mechanic Vs A HEART Surgeon

A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when


he spotted the famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to

the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his

car.



The mechanic shouted across the garage," Hello Doctor!! Please come over

here for a minute."



The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic.



The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked

argumentatively, "So doctor, look at this. I also open hearts, take

valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish this will

work as a new one.. So how come you get the big money, when you and me

is doing basically the same work? "



The doctor leaned over and whispered to the mechanic.... .

Put ICE on your Cell Phone - AN ADVICE FOR EMERGENCY


Apparently this  is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when  they come across your cell phone. 

ICE  - 'In Case of Emergency'
We all carry our mobile phones with names &  numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of  these numbers belong to our closest family or  friends. 

If we were to  be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would  have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds  of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?  Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign the concept of 'ICE' is  catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As  cell(mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you  need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be  contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE' ( In Case Of  Emergency). 

The idea was  thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of  accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know  which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if  there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency  situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to  quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored  as 'ICE.' 
For more than  one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will  make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by  storing an  ICE number in our Mobile  phones today!

Please  forward this. It won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know  about this. It  really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at  rest

ICE  will speak for you when you are not able  to.




Smart Peoples Be Aware - Take this Seriously!

Someone shared MANY below stated cases : 

(1) Today I passed by a building which has an ATM machine. There was a
man looking at me. Suddenly, he called me. He said he didn't know how to
read, so he gave me his ATM card and asked me to help him withdraw money
from the ATM machine. I answerd 'NO!! If you need help, ask the security
guard. Then he said 'nevermind.. .' and continued to find other people to
help him... REMEMBER : ATM machines have CCTVs. If you help him he will
later claim that you have robbed him or stolen his ATM card. Besides, his
ATM card could be a stolen one.
So please be careful of these tactics.


(2) Suddenly your house lights go off. From your window you find that your
neighbours still have lights. So you go out of your house to check the
Meter Box. But once you open the door, a knife will be pointing at you and
preventing you from closing it. This is when you will be robbed and
injured.

REMEMBER: Even though your electricity suddenly goes off, DO NOT open the
door immediately. Look around to see if there is anything unusual or if
there is any noise around. 


(3) This is another incident. You may have heard it before, it is about a
lady who she saw a kid crying by the roadside.
When she spoke to the kid, the kid told her he was lost and wanted her to
take him home and gave her a paper with his house address. So she took him
home. But when she rang the door bell, she had an electric shock. Later
when she woke up, she was naked in an empty room.

REMEMBER: Being such a compassionate and helpful person might not be a
good thing these days. Pass this on and girls, please be careful.. DON'T
BE TOO KIND!! 




(4) One day, there was an old lady outside my house holding 2 packets of
sweets. At first I thought she was our neighbour and wanted to give us
these packs of sweets as a gift. But then when she spoke, I realised that
she was foreigner. I could not understand what she was talking about. I
guessed she must be asking for money.I sensed there wassomething wrong and
immediately closed the door and ignored her. Later, I found she and an
accomplice robbed someone else down the road.



(5) I was at the ATM machine to withdraw some money. Behind me, there was
an old lady. She asked me whether I was able to withdraw my money because
she said she had problem with her machine. Suddenly a small girl came up
beside me. The small girl went in front of me. I thought she was just
naughty and playful. But then, the small girl put her hand at the tray of
the ATM machine where the money comes out, ready to take away my money. I
sensed something was wrong and immediately pushed her away. Later I
realised that the small girl and the old lady worked together. She was
trying to steal my money while the old lady was trying to distract my
attention by asking me questions! 

REMEMBER: BE VERY CAREFUL when you are at an ATM machine and be alert. 

Look out for anyone suspicious around you!


(6) My parents are retired and stay at home most days. One afternoon, a
young stranger went to their house and said his motorcycle had no more
petrol and the petrol station was too far for him to push his bike there.
So he asked my parents for an empty coke bottle to buy some petrol. He
said he will pay P50 for the bottle. So my mum took one coke bottle for
him. He really took out the money from his pocket, but it was a P1000
bill. He told my mum he had no small change and asked my mum to give him
the change. Luckily my mum was smart. She just gave it for free.


REMEMBER : obviously that bill is fake!! Who would want to pay for P50 for
an empty coke bottle!! It's very OBVIOUS that that stranger is a
trickster. 



(7) This happened in Bali . A newly married couple were having their
honeymoon at the hotel. When both are in the changing room, the wife
suddenly went missing. The husband was very anxious and went around to
find her. He asked the hotel staff to help him find her. Then he thought
his wife was just playing hide and seek. So he went back and waited for
his wife. After a few hours, he decided to call the police. 3 weeks passed
and there was still no news about his missing wife. So he went back and
was very dissapointed and sad. A few years later, he came back to Bali ,
to watch a 'FREAK SHOW' in an old house. He saw a dirty and rusty metal
cage. Inside there was a lady without limbs. Her body including the face
was full of scars. When he had a closer look at her face, he was shocked
to find that it was his missing wife put there as a means for begging.



(8) This happened in Shanghai . A few years ago, a lady reported to the
police that her cousin sister was missing in the shopping complex. But
after 5 years, one of her friends found her cousin sister begging at the
road side on one of the streets in Bangkok, Thailand. The worst thing is
that her cousin sister has no more limbs and her body was tied to a lamp
post with a shackle (metal chain).



(9) Let's just shorten this story. DO NOT open your house door when you
hear the sound of a BABY CRYING!! It might be a trap! Women in the house
must be alert to this trick.
The police said it is the work of a robber or
murderer using the recording of a baby crying to attract your attention.
This normally happens at night and when you are alone in the house.


(10) I read an email that was sent by my friend. Her friend, known as A,
went to Luo Hu Commercial City with 2 friends, B and C. Luo Hu Commercial
City is the Shenzhen counterfeit goods distribution center. There are many
people there. It's also near to the ShenZhen train station and Hong Kong's
Luo Hu Port. C went to the toilet at the shpping centre while A and B
waited outside. After waiting for a long, time they felt uneasy and went
into the toilet to look for her. When they went in, there was nobody
inside. Both were scared and they called C's phone. There was no reply. So
they reported to the police. The police asked them whether they had seen
anyboby suspicious going into the toilet. Both said there were none and
its impossible to bring a live person out of the toilet without them
noticing!. Then A remembered seeing a cleaner pushing a trolley in, and
then coming out. The police told them that was not the 1st time such a
thing happened. The police suspected a gang of criminals who were always
attacking women in the toilet of shopping complexes. They use cleaners to
kidnap people to harvest their organs for sale.

REMEMBER : please be careful when using the toilet. Do not go to the wash
room or toilet ALONE!! Please at least have a partner with you.

Donot Judge things too quickly!

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen. The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.

The second son said no, it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life. He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall. 

MORAL: Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. Don't judge life by one difficult season.

AN ARAB STUDENT'S EMAIL TO HIS DAD ( Humor )


                      An Arab student sends an e-mail to his dad, saying: 

  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 pure-gold Ferrari 599GTB
when all my teachers and many fellow students travel by train.

Your son, 
Nasser.

The next day, Nasser gets a reply to his e-mail
from his dad:

My dear loving son,

Twenty million US Dollar has just been transferred 
to your account. Please stop embarrassing us.
Go and get yourself a train too.
                                 Love, your Dad.


LAPTOP Awareness Information



 A  family in Mequon lost their 25 year old son Arun Gopal   
in a freak fire accident at home June 4th. This is exactly what happened.

Arun had graduated with MBA from University of Wisconsin-Madison just two weeks earlier and had came home from the campus for a day. 

He had lunch with his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his room at the campus. However, his dad told him to wait and see his mother before returning to the campus as she was due back from work in a couple of hours. He decided to take a snooze while waiting for his mom while his dad went out.

Neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of the house. The 25 year old Arun died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire. It was determined that the fire was caused by laptop in the bed.
When the laptop is on the bed, the area below it is blocked and the cooling fan does not get air to cool it  and that is what caused the fire.
Arun did not even wake up to make any effort to get out of bed as he died of massive carbon monoxide inhalation. The purpose of this "forward" is to make aware that most of us use our laptop in bed and often go to sleep with it next to us. Please make it a practice not to do that.

The risk is very real. Make it a rule not to use the laptop in bed.

Hearing problem... a short story



A man feared his wife wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he
thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach
her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor
told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform
to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

Here's what you do," said the Doctor, "stand about 40 feet away from
her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears
you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a
response.

"That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was
in the den. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see
what happens." then in a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for
dinner?" No response. So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen,
about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is
about 20 feet from his wife and asks, Honey, what's for dinner?"
Again he gets no response so; He walks up to the kitchen door, about
10 feet away. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Again there is no
response. So he walks right up behind her.

"Honey, what's for dinner?" ;;;;"James, for the FIFTH time I've
said, CHICKEN!"


Moral of the story:
The problem may not be with the other one as we always think, could
be very much within us..!

Know your Customer - KYC

A disappointed salesman of Coca Cola returns from his Middle East assignment. A friend asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Arabs?"

The salesman explained, "When I got posted in the Middle East , I was very confident that I would make a good sales pitch as Cola is virtually unknown there. But, I had a problem I didn't know to speak Arabic. So, I planned to convey the message through three posters... 



 First poster - A man lying in the hot desert sand...totally exhausted and fainting.
Second poster - man is drinking our Cola.
Third poster- Our man is now totally refreshed.
Then these posters were pasted all over the place
"That should have worked," said the friend.  


The salesman replied "I didn't realize that Arabs read from right to left"
