Here’s your sign…(From Surfersam.com)
A Godfather in the mob finds out that his bookkeeper has stolen ten million bucks.
This bookkeeper happens to be deaf, so the Godfather brings along his attorney, who knows sign language. The Godfather asks the bookkeeper: “Where is the 10 million bucks you embezzled from me?” The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the 10 million dollars is hidden.
The bookkeeper signs back: “I don’t know what you are talking about.” The attorney tells the Godfather: “He says he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.”
That’s when the Godfather pulls out a 9 mm pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper’s temple, cocks it and says: “Ask him again! The attorney signs to the underling: “He’ll kill you for sure if you don’t tell him!”
The bookkeeper signs back: “OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo’s backyard in Queens!”
The Godfather asks the attorney: “Well, what’d he say?”
The attorney replies: “He says you don’t have the guts to pull the trigger.”

On this date in 1858, Bernadette Soubirous, a young French girl, claimed to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary in Lourdes, France. Since that time, the grotto where Soubirous saw her vision has been the destination for pilgrims from around the world, as the water in the grotto are said to have healing powers. The grotto and the land surrounding it are owned by the Roman Catholic Church. There are 22 separate places of worship on the land offering Mass in six different languages: French, English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, and German.
