"Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change."
Three handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a beautiful, enticing, female Poodle.
The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time.
The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and hoping for just a glance from her in return.
Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she decides to be kind and tells them, “The first one who can use the words “liver” and “cheese” together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence can go out with me.”
The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says “I love liver and cheese.”
“Oh, how childish,” said the Poodle, “That shows no imagination or intelligence whatsoever.”
She turned to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and said: “How well can you do?”
“Ummm…I HATE liver and cheese,” blurts the Golden Retriever.
“My, my,” said the Poodle, “I guess it’s hopeless. That’s just as dumb as the Lab’s sentence.”
She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, “How about you, little guy?”
The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is the Chihuahua.
He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the Lab and says, “Liver alone, cheese mine.”

It's Christmas Card Day! Sir Henry Cole created the first Christmas card in England in 1843 while Louis Prang created the first American Christmas card in 1875. It's Anticorruption Day (an UN initiative to raise awareness and support to fight corruption such as bribes, tributes, and protection rackets that undermine social and economic growth), Pastry Day (pastry has been around 2600 BC where the Egyptians blended flour and honey; now we have several versions of pastry such as shortcrust, flaky, puff, choux, and phyllo), Day of Veterinary Medicine (where would we be without those dedicated angels who help keep our furbabies healthy), Techno Day (today celebrates a unique form of music created in Detroit that is full of driving rhythm), Weary Willie Day (celebrates the hobo clown played by Emmett Kelly, born in 1898, originally a trapeze artist and then played Weary Willie for the Ringling Bros. in 1942-1956), Choral Day (a day to celebrate a special form of music that contributes to unite all of us in peace and harmony), and Llama Day (a day for those very unique farm animals). In 1965, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" aired for the first time on TV and would become a Christmas tradition in spite of the pundits saying it would be a flop.
