A painter made a bid on a painting: Said it will cost you by the stroke:
One stroke is one penny. The finished work cost the buyer 300 pennies:
But, the painter did 600 strokes: But charged correctly to the buyer?
CAN YOU FIGURE THIS PUZZEL OUT? common sense is the key!




Kids Say the Darndest THINGS:

Some of Ole Pabears favorites he has heard:

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah". The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl replied, "Then you ask him". 

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: "Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail. Amen." 

One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew, but, were losing the battle. Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!" 

And one particular four-year old prayed, "And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets." 

A little boy was overheard praying: "Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it. I'm having a real good time like I am." 

A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping?" 

A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments. They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted "Thou shall not take the covers off the neighbor's wife" 

Six-year old Angie and her four-year old brother Joel were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had enough. You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked. Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door? They're hushers." 

A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore, there a seagull lay dead in the sand. "Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked. "He died and went to Heaven," the dad replied. The boy thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?" 

A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?""I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied. "Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered. The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

TIBITS collected by Pabear:

Clean a toilet bowl.
Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl. Let the real thing sit for one hour, then brush and flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china, according tohousehold-hints columnist Heloise.

Remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers.
Rubbing the bumper with acrumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Colawill help remove rust spots, according to household-hints columnist MaryEllen.

Clean corrosion from car battery terminals.
Pour a can of carbonatedCoca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion, according to Heloise


Condition hair and prevent split ends and frizzies. 
Mix one tablespoon SueBee honey and two teaspoons Star Olive Oil. Warm the mixture (but not too hot), dip your fingers into it, and rub it into the strands of hair. Soak a towel in hot water, wring out completely, and wrap around your head for twenty minutes. Then shampoo as usual, lathering well to remove the olive oil.

Give yourself a facial. 
Mash a banana and add one tablespoon SueBee Honey. Cover your face with the mixture, let sit fifteen minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Dress wounds and burns. 
Apply SueBee Honey to the injury. Honey is hygroscopic and absorbs water, creating an environment in which disease-producing microorganisms, deprived of their moisture, cannot live.

Soothe a sore throat. 
Take one teaspoon of SueBee Honey at bedtime, letting it trickle down your throat.

Cure a hangover. 
Honey is a concentrated source of fructose. Eating SueBee Honey on crackers helps your body flush out whatever alcohol remains in the body.

Relieve a cough due to a cold.
Dissolve one tablespoon SueBee Honey and one tablespoon ReaLemon in a small glass of warm water and sip it. For a stronger solution, combine equal parts SueBee Honey and ReaLemon, and take one teaspoon at bedtime. Both mixtures may help loosen phlegm.

Make a bath toy. 
Use an empty SueBee honey bear in the bathtub.

Make a glue dispenser. 
Fill a SueBee honey bear with Elmer's Glue and tint with food coloring to make colorful glues. 

Substitute honey for sugar when cooking. 
Use SueBee Honey in place of granulated sugar for up to one-half of the sugar. With experimentation, honey can be substituted for all the sugar in some recipes. For baked goods, add about one-half teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used, reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by one-quarter cup for each cup of honey used, and reduce oven temperature by 25 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent over-browning. For easy removal, spray measuring cup with PAM No Stick Cooking Spray before adding honey.

Make children sleepy at bedtime and help prevent small children from wetting the bed.
A teaspoon of honey at bedtime will act as a sedative to a child's nervous system and will attract and hold fluid in a child's body during the hours of sleeping. When a child over one-year old is given honey, the blood and tissue calcium begins to increase. The calcium unites with excess phosphorous to form a compound that makes bones, teeth, hair, and fingernails. The sedative effect on the nervous system of a child may be observed within an hour. Honey should not be fed to infants under one year of age. Honey is a safe and wholesome food for older children and adults.

Help heal erysipelas. 
Generously cover the affected area with honey, then cover with cotton for 24 hours. Repeat if necessary.
