The Great Seal Of The State Of Ohio…

MQTlogoa “Quality Time” thought for today:: “Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Do not overdo it.” Lao Tzu.. “But Do It” Joe Todd


“According to historical lore, the seal was based on the eastern view from Adena, the home of Thomas Worthington near Chillicothe. Worthington was one of Ohio's first two United States senators and he served as the sixth governor of the state.”  As we walk along passing through the grove.”

Two College Seniors & Their Exam….

MQTlogoaA big thanks to Terry for his email quality time joke


col2 Two college seniors had a week of exams coming up. They decided to party instead.

col3  Their biggest exam was on Wednesday, and they showed up telling the professor that because of

col5  Fat Tire they needed a bit more time to study.

col6 The professor told them that they could have another day to study. That evening, both of the boys crammed all night until they were sure that they knew just about everything.

Arriving to class the next morning, each boy was told to go to two separate classrooms to take the exam. Each


boy just shrugged and went to the two different parts of the building.

As each sat down, they read the first question.

"For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom."

col9 At this point, they both thought that this was going to be a piece of cake, and answered the question with ease.
Then, the test continued.

"For 95 points, tell me which tire it was...!!!


Actually they both aced the test…..How did they do it??? They simply told the truth…

col4 It wasn’t a flat tire it was New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale.. The Fat Tire recipe originates from a co-founder's bicycle trip through Belgium from brewery to brewery. The company promotes its Fat Tire ale locally by the public placement of colorful vintage bicycles outside its brewery, which is located adjacent to the public bike path along the Cache La Poudre River.

Confession of an Old Italian Man

MQTlogoa Confession of an Old Italian Man a World War II saga……

it1An elderly Italian man (Agnolo), who lived on the outskirts of Rimini Italy,

it2 went to the local church for confession. When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional,

it3  the man said, “Father, during World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood

it4  knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic.”

IT7 The priest replied, “That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that.”

"There is more to tell, Father… she started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays."

IT6 The priest said, “That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under those circumstances can succumb to the weakness of the flesh.

IT8 However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven.”

"Thank you, Father. That’s a great load off my mind. I do have one more question."

And what is that?” asked the priest.

"Should I tell her the war is over?"



OLDMAN Hope everyone has a great day…..
