There were five houses of religion in a small town:
The Presbyterian Church,
The Baptist Church,
The Methodist Church,
The Catholic Church
and The Jewish Synagogue.
Each church and house of prayer was overrun with pesky squirrels.
The Presbyterians called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels.After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.
In The BAPTIST CHURCH the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery which is a tank for administering baptism by immersion. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many the next week.
The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. So, they humanely trapped the Squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town.
Three days later…, the squirrels were back.
The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution.
They baptised the squirrels and registered them as members of the church.
Now they only see them on their weddings, children’s baptism, Christmas and Easter.
The Jewish Synagogue reverted back to old tradition. They caught one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven’t seen a squirrel on the property since.
The above joke is via an e-mail
A yellow candle,
Is a cylindrical Banksia.
A Glowing cone against
The dark green leaves
Is native to Australia,
Pretending to be a single flower
Conspicuous to lure the bees and birds,
To prepare the next generation!
Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.

I called an old school friend and asked what was he doing.
He replied that he is working on,
“Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, Aluminum and steel under a constrained environment”.
I was impressed……
On further inquiring I have learnt that he was washing dishes with hot water…..under his wife’s supervision.
I was astounded by his creativity and the command of language!!!

Botanists refer as Jacaranda Mimosifolia
A tree, native to Central America
Spread its roots near and far,
And line the streets everywhere.
When summer comes
Jacaranda blooms to hide her leaves
With magnificent purple panicles
Showing off her wealth to the world,
That I am here….
