Now add up your points.....and see below which cartoon character's personality is like yours. When you forward this to your friends, put your character's name in the SUBJECT area. Very interesting to see 'who' your friends are! :)

(10-16 points) You are Garfield: You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what you are doing and you are always in control of your life. Others may not see things as you do, but that doesn't mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember, your happy spirit may hurt you or others.

(17-23 points) You are Snoopy: You are fun; you are very cool and popular. You always know what's in and your never out of style , you are good at knowing how to satisfy everyone else. You have probably disappeared for a few days more than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned being married and having children are important to you, but only after you have had your share of fun times.

(24-28 points) You are Elmo: You have lots of friends and you are also popular, always willing to give advice and help out a person in need. You are very optimistic and you usually see the bright side of things. Some good advice: try not to be too much of a dreamer. Dreaming too big could cause many conflicts in your life.

(29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants: You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend that anyone could ever have and never wants to lose. You never cause harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life is a journey, its funny and calm for the most part stay away from traitors and jealous people and you will be stress free.

(36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown: You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious about all relationships. You are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few Birthdays. Don't let your passion confuse you with reality.

(44-50 points ) You are Dexter: You are smart and definitely a thinker... Every situation is fronted with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong family principles. You maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad situation when it comes. Try to do less over thinking every once in a while to spice things up a bit with spontaneity!

80 years and counting

Still together after 80 years, Britain's oldest married couple celebrate their 'oak' wedding with a simple kiss. As with any married couple, there are times when Frank and Anita Milford don’t quite see eye to eye.
But they have never let the odd disagreement get in the way of their love for each other and their dedication to their marriage.
To prove it, Frank, 100, and Anita, 99, today celebrate their 80th wedding anniversary, equalling the record for England’s longest-ever marriage.
They say the secret to a lasting marriage is to iron out your arguments before bedtime and share a kiss and a cuddle every night before bed.
Mrs Milford said: ‘It’s our golden rule. Couples these days don’t last long because they often don’t take enough time for each other.
'Our advice to young couples would be to make time for a little romance every day.’
Mr Milford added: ‘To win over your sweetheart you need a dose of old-fashioned chivalry and don’t let your standards slip. We do everything together even after 80 years.’
The pair met in 1926 at a YMCA dance in their home town of Plymouth. They married two years later, on May 26, 1928, and after the register office ceremony popped to the cinema to catch a Charlie Chaplin film.
Shortly after they moved to a bungalow in the city’s St Budeaux district, where they lived until 2005. Mr Milford worked at Devonport Dockyard until retiring at 60.
The couple have two children, Marie, 78, and Frank, 73, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
Mr Milford said: ‘We’re proud of what we have achieved. When we started we had low wages and worked very hard.
‘The war years were tough - a bomb even dropped on our house. But we have comethrough it.’ Since moving to a nursing home, the couple have taken up a range of hobbies.
They have just received a letter from the Queen congratulating them on their ‘oak’ anniversary. Their 80 years together equals the English record set by Percy and Florence Arrowsmith of Hereford in 2006. Mr Arrowsmith died a fortnight after celebrating the anniversary.
Guinness World Records says the longest British marriage was that of Thomas and Elizabeth Morgan of Caerleon, South Wales, who were married for 81 years 260 days until her death in 1891.

Unlikely litter mates Chihuahua adopt squirrels

Don't tell Zachary, but his bushy-tailed brother is adopted. The rodent is one of three orphaned squirrels being raised by Zack's mom, along with her own two pups, in Cundy's Harbor, Maine.
Norma, a 5-year-old long-haired Chihuahua, has a litter of five. Three of them can hang upside down from the top of their kennel cage and hold food in their front paws. That's because three of Norma's babies are squirrels.
In early April, a tree worker cut down a tree near Cundy's Harbor Road to find a squirrel nest inside with three infants. They were abandoned, likely because the chainsaw scared off the little tykes' mother.

So adorable! Who can resist these two? Mankind can learn a lot from the animals. It doesn't matter who you are, we all have the capacity to love each other.

Song thrush chicks hatched on fairground ride

Three song thrush chicks have hatched in a nest in Nottinghamshire - on top of a funfair carousel. The chicks, thought to have hatched about 10 days ago, were spotted by staff at Wheelgate Park in Mansfield. The adult birds moved in four weeks ago and built a nest high up in the structure of the carousel. They fly in to feed the chicks when the ride stops.
The song thrush is a garden songbird whose numbers have declined so much it is on the RSPB's warning red list. Ken Foster, team leader at Wheelgate Park, said: "The chicks are doing fine and both parents are flying in to feed them when the ride stops and customers get on and off. We make sure we allow plenty of time. "However, the chicks seem very happy having a bite to eat while twirling around on the carousel, they obviously don't suffer from motion sickness!"
