However you may have regarded Anna Nicole Smith and in whatever light you may have held her, she was in a way inspiration to all, but to all in different ways. She was inspiration to drop-out young girls that they too could make it to stardom (albeit notoriety) some day, even if it meant marrying someone 30 years their senior, or shedding their clothes to the next magazine that came along. She inspired drug addicts that they too could actually lure in 4 million viewers to a reality show where the main star could be too stoned to be coherent. And she definitely set an example to all moms how it could all go horribly wrong when we fail our young (Her son, Daniel, died of a drug overdose five months ago); In effect, she proved that it may not be enough to love our children (her son was her best friend) but to do all possible to protect them by providing a safe environment with positive role models.
And now, with the end of Anna Nicole's ever troubled journey here on Earth optimists have to again hope that there really was a welcoming light at the end of the tunnel and that she has finally found peace on the other side. May her star shine there as strong as it had once done here.
This letter was recently sent by Tesco's Head Office to a customer in Oxford :Dear Mrs. Murray,While we thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco LoyaltyCard, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and your family from shopping with us, unless your husband stops his antics.Below is a list of offences over the past few months all verified by our surveillance cameras:
(follow the illustration above): Firstly, open your palm, bend the centre fingers and put them together back to back Secondly, the remaining 4 fingers join the tips together...
Follow the arrangement below:
1. Try to open your thumb, the thumb represent parents, it can open up, which states that our parents will leave us one day.
2. Now close up your thumbs, then open your second finger, the second fingers too open up, these fingers represent brothers and sisters, they too have their own family which is why they too will leave us one day.
3. Now close up your second fingers, open up your little finger, these represent your children. These fingers too open up. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got their own lives to live.
4. Nevertheless, close up your little finger, try to open your fourth finger on which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprised to find that it cannot be opened at all. Because it represents husband and wife,(The Chinese believe that this whole life you will be attached to each other if it's real love).
Thumb represents parents
Second finger represents brothers and sisters.
Centre finger represents own self.
Fourth finger represents your partner.
Last finger represents your children.

She said it was midwinter... snowing and quite cold...and the guy had taken her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and truly had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon.
They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte. They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for a while.
Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point where she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car. They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started. In the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself.
Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.
Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem due to the extreme cold.
Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor of the moment, she answered her date's concerns about "what is taking so long" with a reply that indeed, she was "freezing her butt off and in need of some assistance!" He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma.
Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem. Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free.
So, as she looked the other way, her first-time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender. As the audience screamed in laughter, she took the Tonight Show prize hands down... or perhaps that should be "pants down." And you thought your first date was embarrassing. Jay Leno's comment .. "This gives a whole new meaning to being pissed off."
