The Knothole

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag."
"Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer."
"Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. "Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?"
"Oh, no, no," said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course. A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower Garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make the best of it?' So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 'O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.'"
"Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?"
"Not everybody pays."

Baked Beans with Scrambled Eggs and Potatoes (Meatless Recipe)

First of all, my sincere apologies for my long silence and absence as I have been extremely busy since late last year.  To keep it simple and to start off my 1st recipe post in 2013, here is a very simple and yet nutritious dish for you and your family.  Hope you like it.. :)

My girls like baked beans very much.  Sometimes I would just cook it with scrambled eggs and we would have it with rice or bread for breakfast.  For this recipe, I have added chinese leeks to the scrambled eggs and potatoes too.  Do give this a try and let me know whether you and  your loved ones like it or not.

Ingredients :
- 1 can of baked beans (I prefer TST brand)
- 1 stalk of chinese leeks (washed and sliced)
- 2 potatoes (peeled and cubed)
- 6 eggs (mixed with a pinch of salt)
- Salt and soy sauce (to taste)
- Cooking oil 

Method :

1)  Heat a wok with some oil and fry cubed potatoes till soft.  Dish out and put aside.

2)  In the same wok, heat some oil.  Give the chinese leeks a quick stir and add in the beaten eggs.  Fry until the eggs have set.

3)  Then, add the cooked potatoes and baked beans to the scrambled eggs.  Mix well.

4) If too dry, add some water.

5) Add salt and soy sauce to taste.

6) Dish out and serve with rice or bread.
Hope you like this simple dish. It is excellent for breakfast!

Why I said YES

A woodcutter, while cutting trees dropped his axe into the river. But God was gracious and went into the water and reappeared with a silver axe. The Lord asked: Is this your axe?" "No," the woodcutter replied. The Lord again went down and came up with a golden axe. "Is this your axe?" Again, the woodcutter replied: "No." The Lord went down again and came up with an iron axe. "Is this your axe?" The woodcutter replied: "Yes." The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all three axes to keep. The woodcutter went home happily. One week later, while helping him chop wood, his wife fell into the river. The Lord was gracious and went down into the water and came up with Christy Chung. "Is this your wife?" the Lord asked. "Yes!" cried the woodcutter. The Lord was angry: "I'm disappointed with you. Your told a lie!" "God, let me explain," the woodcutter pleaded. "You see, if I said 'no' to Christy Chung, you would come up with someone like Jennifer Lopez. Then if I also said 'no' to her, you would come up with my wife, and I would say 'yes', and then all three would be given to me. But Lord, I am a poor man and I will not be able to take care of all three wives. So that's why I said yes this time."
