Please don't be a bore and ruin it. Send it on to everyone you know including the person that sent it to you. Sometimes when you have a stressful day or week, you need some silliness to break up the day. If we are honest, we have a lot more stressful days than not.

Here is your dose of humor...
A. Follow the instructions to find your new name.
B. Once you have your new name, put it in the subject box and forward it to friends and family and co-workers.

Don't forget to forward it back to the perso n who sent it to you, so they know you participated. And don't go all adult - a senior manager is now known far and wide as Dorky Gizzardsniffer!

The following is excerpted from a children's book, Captain Underpants And the Perilous Plot Professor Poopypants, by Dave Pilkey, in which the evil Professor forces everyone to assume new names... So:-

The Little Red House with No Doors and No Windows and a Star Inside.

One crisp Autumn day a boy named Peter was looking for something to do.
His mother was busy making applesauce and couldn't stop to play with him, so she suggested that he go on a quest.
"What is a quest?" asked Peter.
"A quest is a search for something important that is very hard to find," said his mother.
"What shall I look for?" asked Peter.
His mother thought for a moment. "You could look for the Little Red House with No Doors and No Windows and a Star Inside," his mother said.

If you want to try an activity that combines more than one type of exercise -- and is relaxing and refreshing to boot -- consider taking a class in yoga, Pilates or tai chi. These three disciplines have very different origins and techniques. But they all emphasize the mind-body connection and are relaxing ways to increase your flexibility, strength and balance.
This system of breathing and poses (postures) has been around for thousands of years. Yoga promotes flexibility, strength, endurance and balance. It can be as vigorous or as gentle as you choose, and people of all ages and abilities can practice its techniques for stretching and strengthening the body. Many of the yoga classes offered in the United States teach hatha yoga. This style combines gentle breathing exercises with slow stretches and movement through a series of postures known as asanas. Yoga classes are offered at many places, including yoga schools and centers, health clubs, community and senior centers, and churches.
This low-impact system of exercises originates from dance and ballet. Designed to strengthen your core muscles -- lower back, hips, abdomen and buttocks -- Pilates exercises also improve flexibility, strength and posture. In Pilates, you perform a set of controlled stretches and movements, focusing on each muscle group both physically and mentally. Although some Pilates exercises are done on machines, many programs offer floor-work classes. Classes by certified Pilates instructors are offered at health clubs and community centers.
Tai chi
This ancient form of martial arts involves gentle, circular movements combined with deep breathing. The poses are performed slowly and gracefully, with smooth transitions between them. Tai chi helps strengthen muscles, improve flexibility and reduce stress. It also helps you maintain and improve your balance. Classes with qualified instructors are found at martial arts schools, health clubs and community centers.

She is pregnant, he had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.
When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest.
A photographer from the Charlotte , North Carolina newspaper, noticed her in the distance looking at the fireman.
He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do.
As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photograph.

To all my female friends....
I love you!
I am only as strong as the caffeine I drink, the hair spray I use and the girlfriends I have.
Here's to you!
Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married,
pregnant, has a birthday, or retires?
What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching and traveling girlfriends?
Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!
If you get this twice or more, you are lucky to have more than one girlfriend.
Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Their house will be bigger.
They will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go, Be Happy!
And love yourself and your circumstances.
Think about it.
The prettiest woman in the world can have trouble in her heart.
And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes....might be lonely.
And the word says if "I have not Love, I have nothing."
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say
"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!"
I like that!
"Winners make things happen.
Losers let things happen"
Be Blessed ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman.
"To the world you might be one person,
But to one person you just might be the world".
