enlightenment |enˈlītnmənt|
1 the action of enlightening or the state of being enlightened : Robbie looked to me for enlightenment.
• the action or state of attaining or having attained spiritual knowledge or insight, in particular (in Buddhism) that awareness which frees a person from the cycle of rebirth.

Sorry to disagree with you boys, but I think what I've posted fits the definition.

I haven't gotten any spiritual knowledge or insight.  Just because you say it doesn't make it so.   I'm finished on this topic.

nope, not snoped -

How many of these did YOU know about?  
  A sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a
  Knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed.   (hmmmmmm..)
 Use Empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords. It keeps them
 Neat  and  you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.
 For icy door steps in freezing temperatures:
get warm water and put
 Dawn dish washing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't
 Refreeze. (wish I had known this for the last 40 years!)


 To remove old wax from a glass candle holder, put it in the freezer for
 a few hours. Then take the candle holder out and turn it upside down. The
 Wax  will  fall out.


 Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped
  In baking  soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).
 Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt
 BLUE!) rubbing alcohol on paper towel.


 Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of
 Scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having to throw
 Away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would
 Be  much  more economical. Now a box of S.O.S  pads last me indefinitely!
 In fact, I  have noticed that the scissors get 'sharpened'' this way!
 Blood stains on clothes?  Not to worry!  Just pour a little hydrogen  
 Peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood.   Works
 Every time!  (Now, where to put the body?)    LOL


   Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal
 For  inside  windows.
This way you can tell which side has the streaks.
 Straight vinegar  will get outside windows really clean.  Don't wash windows
 On a sunny day.  They will dry t oo quickly and will probably streak.
 Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely
 Light scent in each room when the light  is turned on.


 Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell
 Freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen.
 Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least  3
 Hours prior to burning.
 To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag an d add the
 Flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt
 And leave your artificial flowers looking like new! Works like a charm!


 To easily remove burnt on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap
And enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to   a boil on stove top.

 Spray your TUPPERWARE with nonstick cooking spray before pouring
 In  tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.

 Wrap celery in aluminum foil
when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

 When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the
 Corn's' natural sweetness
  Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your
  Forehead.   The throbbing will go away.
  Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for  future
   Use  in casseroles and sauces ........  Left over wine? What's that?
 To get rid of itch from mosquito bites, try applying soap on the area
And  you will experience instant relief.
 Ants, ants, ants everywhere ...
Well, they are said to never cross a chalk  line. So,
Get your chalk out and draw a line on the floor or wherever ants tend to march. See for yourself.


 Use air-freshener to clean mirrors.
It does a good job and better still,
 Leaves a lovely smell to the shine.
 When you get a splinter,
reach for the scotch tape before resorting to
 Tweezers or a needle. Simply put the scotch tape over the splinter, and
 Then  pull it off. Scotch tape removes most splinters painlessly and easily.
 Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer........  Clean a toilet.
 Drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush.
 The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous China .
 Clean a vase.
 To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water
 And drop in two Alka Seltzer tablets.
 Polish jewelry.
 Drop two Alka Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the
  Jewelry  for two minutes.
  Clean a thermos bottle.
  Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka Seltzer tablets, and let soak
  for an hour (or longer, if necessary).


  Unclog a drain.
  Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka Seltzer tablets down the
  drain  followed by a cup of  Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes,
  and then run the hot water.


  Do your friends a favor.
Pass this timely (and some not-so-timely)
  information on to a friend!  I just did.

Makes you wonder about ingesting Alka Seltzer, doesn't it?

vintage, still pertinent -

2 tough questions to ask
Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who
were deaf,two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.      

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.      

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist      
He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.

He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C
He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an      
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.      

Which of these candidates would be our choice?      

Decide first... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.      
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.

From my source, the NY Times, who should know a thing or 2 about liberal terminology.

''Never trust anyone over 30.'' Indeed, he may have said it often, but Jerry Rubin (nor Bob Dylan - TC) did not coin the phrase. Credit must be given to Jack Weinberger, the civil rights and Berkeley free-speech activist, back in 1964.

Also #17, is not exactly written correctly. You wrote:

"I wonder, wonder, wonder, who". It should be "I wonder, wonder, who, boo doo doo, who".

The answer is "Who wrote the Book of Love?".
It was by the Monotones who came from New Jersey. They were a unique singing group in that they had two bass singers.

And question #12 is not quite correct:
Joe Namath wore pantyhose, not stockings, in the TV commercial.

Mr. Guy,


It doesn't claim that Dylan coined the phrase, but only advised us to 'never trust anyone over thirty.' (Except of course Gators from 66.)




First I didn't right it only cut & paste. Also, I'm not sure that question 17 refers to the version by the Monotones. The Carpenters did a version that left out altogether the immortal "boo doo who" (But I can't think find any version that goes "I wonder, wonder, wonder". Twice is the norm.)


And Sammy,


Some think stockings and panty hose are synonymous.

"Maybe you should go back to battling liberals"


I'm seriously thinking about discussing Mrs. O'Bama's pride; and also the 'greatest'  president of our lifetime's and his wife's refusal to release their tax information, who funded his foundation and library, and his role in obtaining mining agreements from foreign countries in exchange for cash.

"Maybe you should go back to battling liberals"

Speaking of such I just ordered a new book from B&N;Cover Image

In On My Honor, Texas governor Rick Perry, through the legacy of the Boy Scouts of America, takes dead aim at the moral relativism of the secular humanist movement, indicting its corrosive impact on the culture. Examining the left's legal assaults on the Boy Scouts of America -- which span more than 30 years -- Perry offers prescient insight into the multi-faceted war, which pits the proponents of traditional American values against the radical leftist movement that seeks to tear down our social foundations.

On My Honor underscores the depth to which the culture warriors of the left will go to force their secular humanist minority view upon American society and revered American institutions. It is a revealing look at a culture war that rages close to the surface of American life, and it is a must read for any American concerned that our society is slipping from the high moral ground of liberty to the valley of license.
