LAST WEEK’S MEETING
|It only lights up after 4 drinks!|
Rotarians, partners and guests celebrated Christmas at a function at the home of Marlene and Bill Hankinson. It was the next best thing to a white Christmas that one could hope for, with the fog blanket lying thick on the hills. The festive spread provided by Kerry, Elaine, Gillian and Pam was greatly appreciated by all and of course Marlene’s Christmas pud hit the spot.
|Grumpy old men?|
Everyone concerned deserves congratulations. It seemed clear that all present enjoyed themselves in the informal atmosphere. The pictures tell the tale!
|That's enough monkey business!|
|Thank God for global warming|
On Tuesday 6 December, the 2011 Sunshine Safari students visited Maleny (we forgot about the sun in our planning of the day). Sixteen students, under the guidance of Bernie and John and capable helpers, arrived at 12 noon. A number of Rotarians assisted Deb with the serving of lunch, and thank you for your help.

NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT
FROM A WOULD BE QUIZ MASTER
As the Christmas holidays are traditionally a time for puzzles and quizes, feel free to test yourself on the following questions. Try not to scroll down to the answers before you have formulated your response.
1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll down.
The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.
2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?
Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.
3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend .... except one. Which animal does not attend?
Correct Answer : The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.
4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?
Correct Answer:? You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.
According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals do not have the brains of a four-year-old.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!!!
