A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: ‘I don’t believe that God exists.’
‘Why do you say that?’ asked the customer.
‘Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist.
Tell me, if God exists,would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.’
The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.
Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: ‘You know what? Barbers do not exist.’
‘How can you say that?’ asked the surprised barber. ‘I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!’
‘No!’ the customer exclaimed. ‘Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.’
‘ Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.’
‘Exactly!’ affirmed the customer. ‘That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.’
Wow. Good luck with that. If you have any kind of fear of heights – forget about it.

After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, “But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!” I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye….
>My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at 1?”
TEN TIPS FOR FINDING EMPLOYMENT
- Call Recruiters. It just makes sense to have others looking to find employment for you. Two (or more) heads are better than one.
- Job search websites are your friend. Use Monster, Careerbuilder, Yahoohotjobs, indeed, simplyhired, Dice (for IT jobs) and any others you can find.
- Update your online profiles weekly to keep your resume fresh and to show up on more employer searches.
- If you are currently unemployed, spend as much time looking for a job as you would working at one (40 hrs.). It is your job to look for a job.
- Make sure your resume looks sharp, and has no spelling errors. Spelling errors will sink you quickly!
- Network! Get in contact with all your friends, family and co-workers to see if their companies are hiring, or if they know of any open positions in their industries.
- Look professional and speak professionally. First impressions are everything.
- Never be late to interviews, work, meetings, or anything.
- Follow up after interviews and when you submit your resume. Don’t be overbearing, but let them know you are interested.
- Don’t be discouraged. Always remain positive especially in professional settings.
First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals.
This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.
I hope that everyone who sees this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio’s and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family, can look them up on this site.
