Order Your Thoughts 
When a number of unrelated thoughts enter your mind, try to construct some order. Decide which issue you will think about first. Only when you have finished that, then may you go on to the second issue.

This will train you to think in a way which prevents confusion.

I'm sure you will enjoy this. I never realized there is one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adj, adv, prep.

Read until the end ... You'll laugh.

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 
'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand 
UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come 
UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officersUP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car. 

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir 
UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed 
UP is special. 

And this 
UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open 
UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixedUP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of 
UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. 

If you are 
UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. 

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding 
UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . My time is UP!

Oh . . . One more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?



Did that one crack you 

Don't screw 
UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book . . . Or not . . . it's UP to you. 

Now I'll shut 

8. Missing Millionaire's Jerusalem Assets Up for Sale
by Elad Benari Missing Millionaire's Jerusalem Assets Up for Sale

Some of the assets in Jerusalem of millionaire businessman Guma Aguiar, who has been missing for more than a year, have been put up for sale, the Yediot Ahronot newspaper reported on Wednesday.

These assets include a villa in the Old City facing the Western Wall and a second large villa in the city's Yemin Moshe neighborhood, according to the newspaper.

Aguiar, a widely-respected philanthropist who has donated to numerous Torah institutions and yeshivas in Israel and who owns several businesses in Judea and Samaria, disappeared in June of 2012 after going for a sail in his boat in Florida.

The boat subsequently washed ashore at Fort Lauderdale, without Aguiar on board. Police conducted a massive search for him and even released a video showing that he was alone on the boat, but he has not been found to date and the search was called off.

His properties in Jerusalem were placed in the care of the Administrator General after he was declared missing. The Administrator General has appointed lawyers Meir Heller and Ephraim Abramson who are the representatives conducting the sale of Aguiar's properties, reported Yediot Ahronot.

The value of the villa in the Old City is estimated at over 15 million shekels, largely because of the large terrace from which one can see the Western Wall plaza.

The villa in Yemin Moshe, reported Yediot Ahronot, is a property consisting of two units jointed together, with a total area of 430 square meters. This property is also estimated at 15 million shekels, the newspaper said, but either can be purchased each separately for an estimated price of between seven and eight million shekels.

Aguiar has dozens of properties in Jerusalem, the report said, but not all of them are yet up for sale. Many of his assets in the Israeli capital are located in the Muslim Quarter and in the Shiloach (Silwan) neighborhood.

The attorneys in charge of the sale told the newspaper that there has been great interest in the properties by potential buyers, mostly by investors from abroad.
