It's my collection of the mails received over the years or the content/media that I came across during my journey through life. Nearly all of them have a message to convey, and some bring a smile on the face ......and hence "Smiling Pearls". I would also like to acknowledge the credit to the original creators of each article or incident included in my blog.....nearly all of them unknown to me, for the wonderful lessons that I have drawn from them. I cherish them, so I treasure them. So will you.

Teachers and Educators
A certain private school was faced with a unique problem, where a number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick.
They would apply it in the bathroom, which was fine. But after that they would press their lips on the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
Every night the maintenance janitor would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.
She called all girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance janitor. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine all the yawns from the little princesses).
To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance janitor to show the girls how much effort was required.
He took out a long-handled mop, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.
Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
There are teachers.. . . and then...there are educators..!!
