You’ve Been Cleaning Your Oven Wrong All This Time

Here’s what you need:
-Water
-Spray bottle
-Baking soda
-A rag
-Vinegar
-A small bowl

And here’s what you do:
  1. First, remove the oven racks.
  2. Mix a couple of spoonfuls of baking soda with some water in the bowl. Create a paste that will be easily spread on oven surfaces.
  3. Spread the paste on the inside of the oven (baking soda will turn brown). Let it sit overnight (at least 12 hours).
  4. The next day, take a wet rag and wipe out as much of the baking soda paste as you can.
  5. Put some vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz on surfaces where you still see baking soda residue. Then wipe with a wet rag.
  6. Put the racks back in the oven and turn the oven onto a very low temperature for 15-20 minutes to let dry.

To clean the oven window:
  1. Make another paste out of baking soda and water.
  2. Apply the paste directly to the window and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  3. Use a clean rag to wipe the window clean.

Beer is Proof That God Loves Us

Ben Franklin was a very wise man, and played an instrumental part of our country's founding. Being a renaissance man, he had ideas and opinions on just about every topic one could imagine. One of those topics was beer, which Franklin had a very enthusiastic view of. He reportedly said, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." We agree with this statement wholeheartedly, which is why we created these pub glasses with Franklin's insightful thoughts.

Lexophiles - those that have a love for the use of words


"Lexophile" is a word used to describe those that have a love for the use of words, such as "you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish", or "to write with a broken pencil is pointless." A competition to see who can come up with the best lexophiles is held every year in an undisclosed location. This year's winning submission is posted at the very end.   Here goes.



 When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.



 A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.



 When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.



 The batteries were given out free of charge.



 A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.



 A will is a dead giveaway.



 With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.



 A boiled egg is hard to beat.



 When you've seen one shopping center you've seen a mall.



 Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.



 Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off?  He's all right now.



 A bicycle can't stand alone; it's just two tired.



 When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.



 The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.



 He had a photographic memory which was never developed.



 When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she'd dye.



 Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point of it.



And the cream of the twisted crop:



 Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end.




ALWAYS LAUGH WHEN YOU CAN
 IT'S CHEAP MEDICINE

Holy Humor for today

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!"

His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?
The son replied, "I do know!"

"Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?"

"That's easy, Daddy..." the young boy replied excitedly," It stands 
for 
'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.'
 ======= 

There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country.

"Is there anything breakable in here?" asked the postal clerk.

"Only the Ten Commandments." answered the lady.
 

======== 

"Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good morning, Lord," and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, "Good Lord, it's morning." 

======== 

A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter.

Then he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: "I have circled the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses."

When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note "I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket I'll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation."
 

======== 

There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets." 

======== 

While driving in Pennsylvania, a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... "Energy efficient vehicle: Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step in exhaust." 

======== 

Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question, "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"
A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.
"Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked.
"You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven.."
 

======== 

A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.

"Reverend," said the young man, "I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip."

The minister chuckled, "I know what you mean. It's the same in my business."

======== 

People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the centre of attention. 

======== 

Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
He said
, "Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming." ========

MY FAVORITE
 
The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. 
Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.
"Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."

During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."

At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."
And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!
 



When you carry the Bible, Satan gets a headache..... When you open it, he collapses..... When he sees you reading it, he faints..... When he sees that you are living what you read, he flees..... And when you are about to forward this message.... He 
may try to discourage you.!
