Lincoln's letter to boy on sale

(BBC)

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/45472000/jpg/_45472069_lincoln1861_ap226i.jpg



Lincoln letter
The 1861 letter was written personally by President Lincoln

A letter written by former US President Abraham Lincoln to a schoolboy nearly 150 years ago is to go on sale for $60,000 (£36,000) in Philadelphia.

George Patten was with his journalist father when both met the commander-in-chief.

The 16th US president wrote in 1861 after the eight-year-old was mocked by his disbelieving classmates.

The handwritten, signed note confirms the pair met and was sent two weeks after the Lincoln's inauguration.

The letter reads: "Whom it may concern, I did see and talk with master George Evans Patten, last May, at Springfield, Illinois. Respectfully, A Lincoln."

Lincoln put pen to paper after the boy's teacher wrote to him.

Nathan Raab, vice-president of the Raab Collection, which is selling the letter, said there were no other known surviving letters written by Lincoln to a child.

This year, a number of events have been held across the US to mark the bicentenary of the former president's birth.

PROBABLY THE MOST USEFUL EMAIL WE HAVE EVER RECEIVED!


You have got to read this - its brilliant and we will be doing all of these
things...............

*REVENGE ON THE TELEMARKETER **
.


Three Little Words That Work!!

(1) The three little words: 'Hold On, Please....'

Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of
hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more
time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt.

Then when you eventually hear BT's 'beep-beep-beep' tone, you know it's time
to go back and hang up your handset....you have efficiently completed your
task..
These three little words could help eliminate telephone soliciting.*


*(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other
end?

This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and
record's the time of day when a person answers the phone.

This technique is then used to determine the best time of day for a 'real'
salesperson to call back and get someone at home.*
*What you can do after answering: If you notice there is no one there, is to
immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as
quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialled the call and it
kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your
name in their system any longer!!! **


(3) When you get those 'pre-approved' letters in the mail for everything
from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away
the return envelope.


Most of these come with postage-prepaid return envelopes, right?*
*It costs them more than the regular postage 'IF' and when they are
returned. It costs them nothing if you throw them away! In that case, why
not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little,
postage-prepaid return envelopes.

Send an advert for your local chimney sweeper to American Express... they
might need one!
Send a pizza coupon to HSBC... in case their canteen packs up. You get the
idea.
If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them back their
blank application form... after all, it is their form!

If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything
you return.

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them
guessing! It still costs them, and it is their envelope after all. you are
just returning it!!!!

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own
junk back in the post, but folks....we need to OVERWHELM them, in order to
stop them.*

*
Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all
they're paying for it...Twice!

In England::: Let's help keep Royal Mail busy. Since the Royal Mail is saying that e-mail
is cutting into their business profits, let's help them so they will not
need to increase postage costs again.. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it will work ---- maybe you'll get very
little junk mail anymore.

THIS JUST MIGHT BE ONE E-MAIL THAT YOU WILL WANT TO FORWARD TO YOUR
FRIENDS!!!!!!!*

A WOMAN'S WEEK AT THE GYM 


If you read this without laughing out loud, there is something wrong with you. This is dedicated to everyone who ever attempted to get into a regular workout routine


Dear Diary,
For my birthday this year 
my husband purchased a week of personal training at the local health club.!!!!


Although I am still in great shape since being a high school football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try.
I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Christo, who identified himself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.


Friends seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.
________________________________
MONDAY:
Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it was well worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Christo waiting for me. He is something of a Greek god-- with blond hair, dancing eyes, and a dazzling white smile.  Woo Hoo!!


Christo gave me a tour and showed me the machines.. I enjoyed watching the skillful way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my workout today. Very inspiring!
Christo was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole time he was around. This is going to be a FANTASTIC week!!
________________________________
TUESDAY:
I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door..  Christo made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air then he put weights on it!  My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made the full mile.  His rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I feel GREAT!  It's a whole new life for me.
_______________________________
WEDNESDAY:
The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it.  I believe I have a hernia in both pectorals.  Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot.
Christo was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other club members.  His voice is a little too perky for that early in the morning and when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that is VERY annoying.


My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Christo put me on the stair monster.  Why the hell would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators?  Christo told me it would help me get in shape and enjoy life.  He said some other shit too.
_______________________________
THURSDAY:
Asshole was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed as his thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl.  I couldn't help being a half an hour late-- it took me that long to tie my shoes.


He took me to work out with dumbbells. When he was not looking, I ran and hid in the restroom.  He sent some skinny bitch to find me.
Then, as punishment, he put me on the rowing machine-- which I sank.
_________________________________
FRIDAY:
I hate that bastard Christo more than any human being has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic, anorexic, little aerobic instructor.  If there was a part of my body I could move without unbearable pain, I would beat him with it.


Christo wanted me to work on my triceps.  I don't have any triceps!  And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the damn barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich.


The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher.  Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?
________________________________
SATURDAY:
Satan left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly voice wondering why I did not show up today.  Just hearing his voice made me want to smash the ma hine with my planner; however, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel..
________________________________
SUNDAY:
I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is over.  I will also pray that next year my husband will choose a gift for me that is fun-- like a root canal or a hysterectomy.  I still say if God had wanted me to bend over, he would have sprinkled the floor with diamonds!!!

Avatar, also known as James Cameron's Avatar, is a 3-D science fiction epic film written and directed by James Cameron, due to be released on December 16, 2009[1] by 20th Century Fox. The film is Lightstorm Entertainment's latest project, and focuses on an epic conflict on a far-away world called Pandora, where humans and the native species of Pandora, the Na'vi, engage in a war over the planet's resources and existence.

The film will be released in 2D and 3D formats, along with an IMAX 3D release in selected theaters. The film is being touted as a breakthrough in terms of filmmaking technology, for its development of 3D viewing and stereoscopic filmmaking with cameras that were specially designed for the film's production.[8]The film has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking.


http://www.collider.com/wp-content/image-base/Movies/A/Avatar/posters/avatar_movie_poster_final_01.jpg


The story's protagonist, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), is a former U.S. Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. Jake is selected to participate in the Avatar program, which will enable him to walk. Jake travels to Pandora, a lush jungle-covered extraterrestrial moon filled with incredible life forms, some beautiful, many terrifying. Pandora is also home to the Na'vi, a sentient humanoid race, who are considered primitive, yet are more physically capable than humans. Standing three meters tall (approximately 10 feet), with tails and sparkling blue skin, the Na'vi live in harmony with their unspoiled world. As humans encroach deeper into Pandora's forests in search of valuable minerals, the Na'vi unleash their formidable warrior abilities to defend their threatened existence.

Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment. Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars. On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake will be able to walk again. Sent deep into Pandora's jungles as a scout for the soldiers that will follow, Jake encounters many of Pandora's beauties and dangers. There he meets a young Na'vi female, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña).

Over time, Jake integrates himself into the Na'vi clan, and begins to fall in love with Neytiri. As a result, Jake finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth and the Na'vi, forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of Pandora forever.
