Smile: blush
A mother is driving her little girl to her friend’s house for a play day.
Mummy, the little girl asks, ‘how old are you?’
“Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,’ the mother replied, ‘It’s not polite.’
‘OK’ the little girl says
‘What colour was your hair two years ago?’
‘Now really,’ the mother says, ‘those are personal question and are really none of your business.’
Undaunted, the little girl asks, ‘Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?”
‘That’s enough questions, young lady! Honestly!’
The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.
‘My Mum won’t tell me anything about herself,’ the little girl says to her friend.
‘WELL’ says the friend, ‘all you need to do is to look at her Drivers Licence’.
‘Its like our report cards, it has everything on it.’
Later that night the little girl says to her mother, ‘I know how old you are.
You are 32.’
The mother is surprised and asks, ‘How did you find that out?’
‘I also know that you used to have brown hair.’
The mother is past surprised and shocked now.
‘How in heaven’s name did you find that out?’
‘And,’ the little girl says triumphantly,
‘I know why you and daddy got a divorce.’
‘Oh really’ says the mother……Why?
‘It’s all on your driver’s licence and you got an ‘F’ in sex.

Rotary Minute:
Rudy shared: Vocational Service
Vocational Service is the second avenue of service. No aspect of Rotary is more clocsely related to each member than a person commitment to represent one's own vocation or occupation to fellow Rotarians, and to exemplify the characteristics of high ethical standards and the dignity of work. Programs of vocational service are those that seek to improve business relations while improving the quality of trades, industry commerce and professions. Rotarians understand that each person makes a valuable contribution to a better society through daily activities in a business or profession.
Vocational service is frequently demonstrated by offering young people career guidance, occupational information and assistance in making vocational choices. Some clubs sponsor high school career conferences, Many recognize the dignity of employment by honoring exemplary service of individuals working in their communities. The 4-way Test and other ethical and laudable business philosophies are often promoted among young people entering the world of work.Vocational talks and discussion of business issues are also typical Vocational Service programs at most clubs.
Regardless of the ways in which Vocational Service is expressed, it is the banner by which Rotarians 'the worthiness of all useful occupations' and demonstrate a commitment to high ethical standards in all businesses and professions. That's why the second avenue of service is fundamental to each Rotary club.
