Learning to Live… Through Jesus, Our Neighbours and Each Other


“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine….”  (Proverbs 17.22)

A hotel in Cheshire, England, is offering guests the chance to rent a goldfish to keep them company during their stay.  The Happy Guest Hotel charges guests $5 to have the goldfish, unimaginatively named ‘happy’ placed in their room.  The hotel owner, Jeff Riley, believes the goldfish can offer guests ‘unconditional love and a valuable sounding board’ when returning to their room following a hard day’s work.  ‘Obviously it can’t talk back,’ he said, ‘but it can wiggle its fins and swim around the tank – it will give guests someone to talk to and unload the troubles of the day.’   (Globe & Mail

A noted biologist, who had been studying little green frogs in a swamp, was stumped. The frog population, despite efforts at predator control, was declining at an alarming rate. A chemist at a nearby college came up with a solution: The frogs, due to a chemical change in the swamp water, simply couldn’t stay coupled long enough to reproduce successfully. The chemist then brewed up a new adhesive to assist the frogs’ togetherness, which included one part sodium. It seems the little green frogs needed some monosodium glue to mate.
