A husband and wife went to the city fair. The wife wanted to go on the Ferris wheel, but her husband wasn’t comfortable with that, so the wife went on by herself. The wheel went round and round and suddenly the wife was thrown out and landed in a heap at her husband’s feet. “Are you hurt?” he asked. “Of course I’m hurt!” she replied. “Three times around and you didn’t wave once!” Continue reading Marriage & Ferris Wheel
(Read Part I here) “My Daddy couldn’t be here, Because he lives so far away, But I know he wishes he could be, Since this is such a special day. “And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know, All about my Daddy, And how he loves me so. “He loved to tell me stories, He taught me to ride my bike, He surprised me with pink roses, And taught me to fly a kite. “We used to share fudge sundaes, And ice cream in a cone, And though you cannot see him, I’m not standing here alone. … Continue reading Daddy’s Day At School – II

Very Interesting as long as you don’t have to experience it. I started out with nothing…and I still have most of it. When I was young, I would go out and sow my wild oats, then I would pray for a crop failure. But when did my wild oats turn to prunes and all bran? I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart. Funny, I don’t remember being absent minded. All reports are in. Life is now officially unfair. If all is not lost, where is it? It really is easier to get older than it … Continue reading Old Guy Wisdom
In the very earliest time, when both people and animals lived on earth, a person could become an animal if he wanted to and an animal could become a human being. Sometimes they were people and sometimes animals and there was no difference. All spoke the same language. That was the time when words were like magic. The human mind had mysterious powers. A word spoken by chance might have strange consequences. It would suddenly come alive and what people wanted to happen could happen . . . all you had to do was say it. Nobody could explain this: … Continue reading Magic Words…
Noted on the web: I am passing this on to you because it has definitely worked for me. In today’s hectic world we all could use a little calm. By following the simple advice I read in an article, I have finally found inner peace. The article read: “The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you’ve started.” So I looked around the house to see all the things I started and hadn’t finished, and before leaving the house this morning I finished a bottle of red wine, a bottle of white wine, the Bailey’s, Kahlua … Continue reading Finish Unfinished Tasks

Have you wondered why you invariably feel amorous after a drink or two? I am assuming that you will find answers here…
ARIES: Drinking style Impulsive Aries people like to party and sometimes don’t know when to call it a night. Their competitive streak makes them prone to closing-time shot contests. They’re sloppy, fun drunks, and they get mighty flirty after a couple tipples. Getting Aries people drunk is a good way to get what you want out of them, should other methods fail. Aries can become bellicose when blotto, but they will assume that whatever happened should be forgiven (if not forgotten) by sunrise. They can be counted on to do the same for you — so long as you haven’t gone and done anything really horrible to them last night, you sneaky Geminis.
TAURUS: Drinking style Taurus prefers to drink at a leisurely pace, aiming for a mellow glow rather than a full-on zonk. Since a truly intoxicated Taurus is a one-person stampede, the kind of bull-in-a-china-shop inebriate who spills red wine on white carpets and tells fart jokes to employers, the preference for wining and dining (or Bud and buddies) to body shots and barfing is quite fortunate for the rest of us. This is not to say that the Bull is by any means a teetotaler — god, no. A squiffy Taurus will get, er, gregarious (full of loud mouth soup, some would say) and is extremely amusing to drag to a karaoke bar when intoxicated.
Sometime ago I wrote about Bad Bosses here is an example of a guy who mentioned his experience… Needless to say he got fired… Scott Adams himself wrote that “He’s not sadistic, just uncaring.” What troubles me is the question,”How did Scot Adams generalize every possible boss in the world with more or less just +-10% deviation? Here are few observations. Boss will change their mind with every stimuli or communication. Boss will make sure that employees are as clueless as “lab rat” in a maze and encourage guess work on what’s important to the boss. They will always want … Continue reading Way to get Fired…

Here are a set of resolutions that came in a little late – to make you all smile…
Making resolutions and sticking to them can be difficult. Laugh at these ten jokes and try not to take life too seriously.
Getting in shape:
A friend of mine had resisted efforts to get him to run with our jogging group until his doctor told him he had to exercise. Soon thereafter, he reluctantly joined us for our 5:30 a.m. jogs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
After a month of running, we decided that my friend might be hooked, especially when he said he had discovered what “runner’s euphoria” was. “Runner’s euphoria,” he explained, “is what I feel at 5:30 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.”
Starting that diet:
My friend K announced that she had started a diet to lose some Kgs. she had put on recently.
“Good!” I exclaimed. “I’m ready to start a diet too. We can be dieting buddies and help each other out. When I feel the urge to drive out and get a burger and french fries, I’ll call you first.”
“Great!” she replied. “I’ll ride with you.”

Some excellent analogies and metaphors noted on the the world wide web… Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a Thigh Master. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at … Continue reading Analogies & Metaphors
