Jeremy was born with a twisted body and a slow mind. At the age of 12 he was still in second grade, seemingly unable to learn. His teacher, Doris Miller, often became exasperated with him. He would squirm in his seat, drool, and make grunting noises. At other times, he spoke clearly and distinctly, as if a spot of light had penetrated the darkness of his brain. Most of the time, however, Jeremy just irritated his teacher. Read More

God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days – those of the canary in 14 days – those of the barnyard hen in 21 days – the eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days – those of the mallard in 35 days – the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. FYI, the Colorado Potato Beetle’s egg measure about 1.5 mm long. On other hand, the Ostrich egg can measure 6 inches in length and 15-18 inches in diameter. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

1. A four year old child lived next door to an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the elderly man crying, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there for quite a period of time. When the little lad’s mother asked him what he said to the neighbor, the little boy simply said,
“NOTHING MOMMY, I JUST SAT THERE AND HELPED HIM CRY.”
It has been said that there has seldom if ever been a finer person involved in American sports than former UCLA head basketball coach John Wooden. Wooden is one of the most successful basketball coaches ever, as such things are measured by statistics. Mind you, he won ten NCAA championships, believe it or not. His teams once won 88 consecutive basketball games which is an athletic miracle. He has one of the best win-loss ratios of any basketball coach in the history of the game.
It was a time-stopping moment when Montgomery Ward closed its doors never to be opened again. Montgomery Ward for many years had been a huge factor in American retailing. But back in the 30s there were only two basic choices of catalogs and everybody knew it – the Sears Roebuck catalog and the Montgomery Ward catalog. You could choose one or the other with confidence because they were both great companies.
There was an article in the newspaper sometime back about a fake antenna that came on the market for cellular phones. It cost $19.99 as most gimmicks do. The antenna gave the appearance of the real thing, but it was a fake. It was for people who couldn’t afford a cellular phone but did not want their friends and neighbors to know it. The amazing thing is that hundreds of thousands of people bought these fake antennas to impress people who they didn’t even know or like.
