There was a green house. Ins...There was a green house. Inside the green house there was a white house. Inside the white house there was a red house. Inside the red house there were lots of babies. What is it?
A lady is throwing a party for her granddaughter, and had gone all out..... a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party started, two bums showed up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman told them that she would give them a meal if they will help chop some wood for her out back. Gratefully, they headed to the rear of the house.
The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a wonderful time. But the clown hadn't shown up. After a half and hour, the clown finally called to report that he was stuck in traffic, and would probably not make the party at all.
The woman was very disappointed and unsuccessfully tried to entertain the children herself. She happened to look out the window and saw one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watched in awe as he swung from tree branches, did mid-air flips, and leaped high in the air.
She spoke to the other bum and said, "What your friend is doing is absolutely marvelous. I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him $50!"
The other bum says, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him. 'HEY WILLIE! FOR $50, WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?"
France in spaceIn 1965, 14:47 GMT, France launched its first satellite, Astrix-1 onboard a Diamant rocket from Hammaguir, Algeria, becoming the third country in space (after the USSR Sputnik on 4 Oct 1957), and the U.S. Explorer-I on 31 Jan 1958). With a 42-kg payload, the French launch was a test of the Diamant launching vehicle for the first time. Before it lost the colony, the French conducted nuclear, missile, and space launch tests from the Hammaguir site in the Sahara desert near the Moroccan border. The fourth nation to put a satellite in orbit was Japan (Osumi 5, 11 Feb 1970) followed by China (China 1, 24 Apr1970) and the U.K. (Prospero, 28 Oct 1972)
