just a little note to say hello

I have been very busy outside the last couple of days. But I thought that I would just post to say hello to everyone who has been following my journal. I had a very good day today. Good days for me come few and far between lately. I have not been myself since my sister died in october. I know I really need to go on with my life. But it has been such a struggle. Here is a joke that someone sent me that I thought I would share. God Bless everyone.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A contestant on 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' had reached the final
plateau.

If she answered the next question correctly, she would win $1,000,000.
If she answered incorrectly, she would pocket only the $25,000 milestone
money.

And as she suspected it would be, the million-dollar question was no
pushover.

It was, 'Which of the following species of birds does not build its own
nest but instead lays its eggs in the nests of other birds? Is it:

A) the condor

B) the buzzard

C) the cuckoo

D) the vulture

The woman was on the spot. She did not know the answer. She had used up
her 50/50 Lifeline and her Ask the Audience Lifeline. All that remained
was her Phone-a-Friend Lifeline. She hoped she would not have to use it
because ... Her friend was, well--blond.



But she had no alternative. She called her friend and gave her the
question and the four choices.

The blond responded unhesitatingly: 'That's easy. The answer is C: the
cuckoo.'

The contestant had to make a decision and make it fast.

She considered employing a reverse strategy and giving Meredith any
answer except the one that her friend had given her. And considering
her friend was a blond that would seem to be the logical thing to do.
But her friend had responded with such confidence, such certitude, that
the contestant could not help but be persuaded.

'I need an answer,' said Meredith.



Crossing her fingers, the contestant said, 'C: The cuckoo.'

'Is that your final answer?'

'Yes, that is my final answer.'

And Meredith replied, 'That answer is. Absolutely correct! You are now
a millionaire!'

Three days later, thecontestant hosted a party for her family and
friends, including the blonde who had helped her win the million dollars.

'Jeni, I just do not know how to thank you,' said the contestant.

'How did you happen to know the right answer?'

'Oh, come on,' said the blonde... 'Everybody knows that cuckoos don't
build nests. They live in clocks.'
