Day with a Difference – 16-Nov-12

Quote of the day

“Do what you know is right & importance, it is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, & personal satisfaction.” –
Margaret Thatcher

Thought of the day – Learning From Failure
There was once a twelve-year-old girl named Pippi, who really liked amusement parks even though she had never been to one. Her parents had never let her go because they said they were very dangerous, but they would make an exception on her birthday and take her to thebiggest amusement park of them all. So on Pippi’s birthday, her parents bought her an all-day ticket for the park. Pippi was very happy about that, as you can imagine. When she got there, Pippi’s jaw dropped in amazement at the amount of rides, and just how big the park actually was. Pippi and her sister ran to a new ridethat had just been opened – the biggest rollercoaster in the world.

Just as they were about to get on, Pippi felt a fluttering in her tummy that made her stop in her tracks. “Come on, Pippi! Get on, it’s about to go!” cried her sister. “But… I’m scared! This rollercoaster is so big and it’s sure to go very, VERY fast!” said Pippi in a trembling voice. But then she remembered something her grandmother had said not so long ago: “Remember, Pippi, being afraid is the worst thing that can happen to you. Put it aside and bring out the courage you have inside you!”. Recalling these words, Pippi stepped forward and got on the rollercoaster. And that was how she learned that her grandmother was right and that you must overcome fear in order to move forwards.

Joke of the day
"This is Captain Sinclair speaking. On behalf of my crew I’d like to welcome you aboard British Airways flight 602 from New York to London. We are currently flying at a height of 35, 000 feet midway across the Atlantic." "If you look out of the windows on the starboard side of the aircraft, you will observe that both the starboard engines are on fire. If you look out of the windows on the port side, you will observe that the port wing has fallen off." "If you look down towards the Atlantic ocean, you will see a little yellow life raft with three people in it waving at you. That’s me your captain, the co-pilot, and one of the air stewardesses. This is a recorded message."
Have a great day!

Regards,
Prasanna
