Jokes / Is your computer a male or female?

Spanish Computer
 
A Spanish language teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

"House" for instance, is feminine: "la casa."
"Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."
A student asked, "What gender is 'Computer'?"

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher divided the class into two groups, Male and Female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "Computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.
Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that "Computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora"), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck to buy accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)

The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine ("el computador"), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems,

but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.

Send this to all the smart women you know...... And to all the men that have a sense of humor.

Forever In Our Hearts / Just lost my wife of 47 years of marriage

My wife, Donna, was diagnosed with MS over 30 years ago.
The last 8 years I retired early to stay home to provide care for her as MS went to the Progressive Stage.
She was bedridden, no control of bowels or bladder, and unable to stand on her own.
Her courage in handling this speaks volumes of the type of lady she was. No complaining or whining just A True Warrior!

This past Thanksgiving Day I got her to the ER where they found fluid in the lungs and Pneumonia setting in along with a Bowel Obstruction.
With her immune system being slim to none the chances of recovery were the same.
They could have done surgery to remove the bowel obstruction but would have been on the ventilator, being tube fed and in a coma.

I sat beside her and explained what the doctor's had said where she moved her head side to side telling me she didn't want anymore of this.
She passed away peacefully and with dignity just as she wanted to leave this earth.

As she took her last breath I closed her eye's and kissed her good bye telling her we will meet again.
She is now in God's Kingdom without any pain, suffering and free of MS.
She will always be The Wind Beneath My Wings.
