THE BOTTLE OF WINE

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.

As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.

Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

'What's in the bag?' asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, 'It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.'

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.  Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said:

'Good trade.....'  
   
     

 

"Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it.  The presidency is less an office than a performance."

   President Harry Truman
   (1884 - 1972)

 

     
       
Think you have command over your body?  Try this....while sitting down, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction and there's nothing you can do about it.

Mammatus Clouds

 

Spectacular Mammatus Clouds over Hastings, Nebraska
These photos were taken by Jorn Olsen, he lives on Heartwell Park in Hastings, Nebraska.

His website is:  http://www.jornolsen.com which you may be interested in looking at.
   Three of these photos were featured on the front and back cover of the Journal of Meteorology and circulated in 26 countries.

Jorn Olsen works for the Dutton-Lainson Co. in Hastings, Nebraska, and lives by Heartwell Park next to Hastings College.  The other night, probably just after the big storm hit, he took these photos and sent them to UNL which, then,posted them to the following URL.  The stadium lights are at the Hastings College stadium just east of his home.
The clouds are called Mammatus clouds and there's a link on this URL that tells about them.
 They do not precede a tornado, or fortell a storm, but are formed when the air is already saturated with rain droplets and/or ice crystals and begins to sink.  The worst of the storm is usually over when these kind of clouds are seen.  They are quite rare, but really beautiful.
