A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah."

The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"

The little girl replied, "Then you ask him."

      What, you ask, is "Butt dust?" Read on and you'll discover the joy in
      it!  These have to be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!

      JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister.
      After a while he asked: "Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and
      one for cold milk?"

      MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she
      was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, "If you don't
      remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to
      six ."

      STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. "I love you so
      much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window."


      BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a pain killer. She tried
      in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom
      explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her.
      Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: "How does it know it's
      me?"

      SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. "Please
      don't give me this juice again," she said, "It makes my teeth cough."

      DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: "How much do I
      cost?"

      MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and
      kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his
      dad: "Why is he whispering in her mouth?"

      CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom
      asked what was troubling him, he replied, "I don't know what'll happen
      with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?"

      JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: "The man
      named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his
      wife looked back and was turned to salt." Concerned, James
      asked: "What happened to the flea?"

      TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather
      wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then
      asked, "Why doesn't your skin fit your face?"

      The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget.... this particular
      Sunday sermon..."Dear Lord," the minister began, with arms extended
      toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. "Without you, we
      are but dust..." He would have continued but at that moment my very
      obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly
      in her shrill little four year old girl voice, "Mom, what is butt dust?"

      The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, "What'll you have?"

      The guy answers, "A scotch, please."

      The bartender hands him the drink, and says, "That'll be five dollars," to which the guy replies, "What are you talking about? I don't owe you anything for this."

      A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, "You know, he's got you there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration."

      The bartender was not impressed, but says to the guy, "Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don't ever let me catch you in here again."

      The next day, same guy walks into the bar. Bartender says, "What the heck are you doing in here? I can't believe you've got the audacity to come back!"

      The guy says, "What are you talking about? I've never been in this place in my life!"

      The bartender replies, "I'm very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double."

      To which the guy replies, "Thank you. Make it a scotch."

      Jim was annoyed when his blonde wife told him that a car had backed into
      her, damaging a fender, and that she hadn't gotten the license number.
      "What kind of car was he driving?" he asked. 

      "I don't know," she said. "I never can tell one car from another." 

      At that, Jim decided the time had come for a learning course, and for
      the next few days, whenever they were driving, he made her name each car
      they passed until he was satisfied that she could recognize every make.


      It worked. About a week later she bounded in with a pleased expression
      on her face. "Darling," she said. "I hit a Buick!"

      A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day.

      One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.




      As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, 'You know what?  'You have been with me all through the bad times.  When I got fired, you were there to support me.  When my business failed, you were there.  When I got shot, you were by my side.

      When we lost the house, you stayed right here.  When my health started failing, you were still by my side... You know what Martha?'

      'What dear?' she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.

      'I'm beginning to think you're bad luck...

      I am looking for music. Specifically the background music played in the Jehovah's Witnesses drama for Jonah. Is it possible to find all the background music for this drama?
      If it's not possible, I understand. 
      Thank you

      Ok ... um ... how did Jonah breathe and also how did he not get digested while in the stomach of the marine animal that ingested him?

      Whale watching nature tourism is becoming a vehicle for transforming conservation and research into key economic forces.
      ???
      As populations of whales around the world are starting to show signs of slow recovery from past whaling exploitation, the potential is also growing to observe whales from coastal communities.
      ???
      Not only can whale watching help to raise awareness about marine conservation issues, but also it often provides a platform for scientific research, ultimately contributing to the conservation of the animals.

      Who was Jonah? - What Can We Learn From Him? - He Learned From His Mistakes ~ ?????
      JONAH wished he could shut out the terrible sounds. It was not just the fierce wind, which was shrieking through the shipÂ’s rigging; nor was it just the mountainous waves, which were thundering against the sides of the vessel, making her every timber creak and groan.
      ?????
      No, far worse to Jonah were the shouts of those mariners, the captain and his crew, as they struggled to keep the ship afloat. Jonah felt sure that those men were about to die—all because of him! When people think of the man Jonah, they often seem to focus on negative traits, such as his lapses into disobedience or even his hardheadedness. But there was far more to the man than that.
      ?????
      Remember, Jonah was selected to serve as a prophet of Jehovah God. Jehovah would not have picked him for such a weighty responsibility had he been unfaithful or unrighteous.
      ?????
      It may occasionally seem that God asks us to do what strikes us as difficult, even impossible. We may even find it daunting to preach the good news of GodÂ’s Kingdom, as Christians are required to do. (Matt. 24:14)
      ?????
      It is all too easy for us to forget the profound truth that Jesus uttered: “All things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27) If at times we lose sight of that truth, perhaps we can understand Jonah’s difficulty. What, though, were the consequences of Jonah’s flight?

      If conservation efforts pay off, whales could help islands meet their emissions reductions
      Unlikely heroes could play a starring role in helping the Pacific islands meet their climate commitments: whales.
      Residents of the Pacific islands are keeping an anxious eye on the whales that populate their steadily warming waters. Many are concerned that climate change will take a toll on the marine mammals that are an integral part of the islands’ culture, as well as the base of a thriving eco-tourism industry.
      Members of the scientific community are also worried, albeit for a different reason: Whales are crucial to ocean carbon absorption. As whale numbers dwindle, it could lead to increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, scientists say. But if conservation efforts pay off, whales could play a role in helping the islands meet the reductions to their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) of greenhouse gases framed in the Paris Agreement.
      “The main takeaway here is that whales eat carbon, not fish,” said Angela Martin, project lead with Blue Climate Solutions and co-author of a recent report produced for the secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme that looked into the species’ role in carbon absorption.
      “The deep ocean stores a lot of carbon, so it’s worth looking at the contribution of animals and help in conservation efforts,” she added.
      Whales facilitate carbon absorption in two ways. On the one hand, their movements — especially when diving — tend to push nutrients from the bottom of the ocean to the surface, where they feed the phytoplankton and other marine flora that suck in carbon, as well as fish and other smaller animals. The other, explained Natalie Barefoot, executive director of Cet Law and co-author of the report, is by producing fecal plumes.
      “In other words, pooing,” she said. “That also introduces nutrients that create marine plants in the area. These plants use photosynthesis, which absorbs carbon, thus enhancing the carbon capture process.”
      But as waters steadily grow warmer, whales may not be able to survive in the region. It’s difficult to predict just how climate change will affect the species, said Barefoot, because they’re part of a complicated ecosystem with many interlinked species.
      Climate threats are also coupled with human ones like overfishing. Broadly speaking, however, increased temperatures will likely create tough living conditions and drive more whales out of the waters around the islands.
      “Temperature change may directly influence the distribution of whales, and then you have ocean acidification, which can affect the food chain and habitats of their prey. Whales are highly mobile creatures, so if climate change causes the prey to move, they will probably follow them. Then there’s the increased competition that comes about as surface temperatures change and species move to different habitats — all of a sudden, you have different species using the same area, so there’s more competition,” she said.
      Then there’s the question of how climate pressures on humans could affect whale habitats. For instance, as shifting weather patterns affect food security, humans could start relying more on the ocean for food. There’s also the possibility that ship traffic will increase as melting ice opens up more routes across the ocean, leading to more pollution, garbage and noise.
      That dynamic could create a cycle where warming waters harm the whales, in turn reducing the ocean’s ability to suck in carbon and leading to even more temperature increases.

      Our congregation in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico gathered to make a drama about Jonah

    • By TheWorldNewsOrg
      This could well be another hoax from the World News Daily, but their report for a 56-year-old Spanish fisherman great escape, reminiscent of the Biblical tale of Jonah and the whale, found quite a few takers on social media.
      According to the report on the “faux-journalism” site, Luigi Marquez was reported missing at sea after being thrown off his vessel during a violent sea storm. He was presumed dead after coastal guards found no signs of him during the search which lasted for days. Marquez claims he was swallowed by a whale — inside which he spent three days and three nights before being eventually flushed out. “This great beast swallowed me the morning after the storm,” the World News Daily quotes him. “It is the most frightening thing I have ever lived. Everything was pitch black and I was shivering cold.”
      But the story is just too good, or should we say too bad, to be true.
      The website is “dedicated on covering biblical archaeology news and other mysteries around the Globe”. This story will sure be another mystery.
