Post Turtle

While sewing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Aussie farmer, who's hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his role as our Prime Minister.

The old farmer said, 'Well, you know, in my opinion, Rudd is a 'post turtle''.

Perfect Shopping Day

A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second. In the third, everything had just been reduced by 50 percent when her mobile phone rang.

It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in a terrible car accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.

Robin Hood

He was a modern day Robin Hood, take from the rich and give to the poor, but what he took was really all for him. His next plan was to trick billionaire philanthropist Roger Caldwell into donating $500,000 to a fictional charity named Airstreams for Americans. The best way to make your money is to take it from others. At that point he realized that his father and his uncle were agents for Madoff looking for thieves and also a quick Internet score that involved an inheritance, Nigerian warlords, an alien GBU, a love tryst between a service bot and the president's teleprompter, and a tip from Donald Trump. This alerted the FBI.

This Week in Entrecard

This is a great big thank you for last weeks advertisers. For those that I honor each week/month I'm well aware of the dedication you show. In order to stay in the top of the heap you're dropping EC every single day. Many of you have more than one blog and that's 300 drops per day per blog.

Senior Citizen Recall

Hubby got this from one of his pals and decided to make a slide show.
This really cracked him up.
Could be our ages, or could be we don't have to worry about this kind of thing anymore.
Well, some of this we worry about.

This video is a bit long, but it's well worth the watch. Many American's are feeling exactly this way. I know I do. My husband does. Most of my family does.

Boat and Ribs

Even though we are retired, the weekends are something we always look forward to, especially in the warm weather months. Friday signals the day we load the truck and head for Willow Berm Marina for a weekend of boating. Well, we are heading to the boat today, but the weather isn't all that great. It's supposed to rain and then one day of cloudy weather on Saturday, then rain again on Sunday. It doesn't stop us from enjoying our boat. We just won't be taking her out of the slip.

Happy Birthday Mike

Mike of Rambling Stuff aka: Golch Central is having a birthday today.

So grab some cake and make sure you swing by and wish him a happy birthday.

I bet he'd really like that.

Thursday Thoughts

This past couple of weeks seems to have been filled with computer issues. Everything is running wonderfully again and it's good to have my beloved computer up and running properly. I think we all take them for granted until something goes wrong. I know I do.

We've had some very large storms here with lots of wind, heavy rain and thunder and lightening.

Computer Update

Well yesterday was a learning curve for sure. I've been going along for years thinking I was protecting my computer by having a good virus program (Norton 360). Well, I don't have Norton 360 anymore. Let's do a recap of the last week plus. As many of you know I had a very severe virus called TrojanDownloader. We took it to our computer guru and he figured he would have to remove Vista and then reload Vista.

Off to the Boat

Well, this weekend is our first official club function of 2010. We are leaving today to have dinner with our boating neighbors and of course a few cocktails too. Then Saturday evening we have a yacht club dinner meeting at one of my favorite restaurants. You know what's really great about this event? I didn't do any of the work. Our new rear commodore did all the work. Don't worry, come April I'll be back doing functions again through September and that will end my planning and executing functions.

A Very Nasty Virus

Hubby and I just returned from our favorite computer builder and repairman (Moses Rogers, CST Computers) after dropping off my Vista Computer with a virus that we had not been able to resolve with the usual methods.

It comes up with a false “Microsoft” alert saying that you have a Trojan or virus and need to purchase a $39, $49 or $69 solution and directs you to a web site called Internet Security 2010.

Are You Addicted?

I love coffee, maybe too much. Cups of coffee, coffee smoothies, iced coffee from McDonald’s - you name it I’ll drink it (and alot of it). I can’t drink just one cup either, I can drink it all day. Anyone else have this problem? Not sure? Well, if at least 10 of these 25 signs you’re drinking too much coffee applies to you… you might be addicted.

Pigeon: Impossible

This is rather long, but the animation is well worth the watch. When I started watching I got hooked right away. What a great job these folks did, and I love the pigeon.

Press the middle button at the bottom, right hand corner of the video and it will take you to full screen. Best way to view this video.

Andy and Sally

An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired.

Holding hands they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Andy had carved "I love you, Sally."

The Chief

A missionary who had spent years showing a tribe of natives how to farm and build things to be self-sufficient gets word that he is to return home. He realizes that the one thing he never taught the natives was how to speak English, so he takes the chief and starts walking in the forest.

He points to a tree and says to the chief "This is a tree."

It's a brand new year and it's cold outside. Speedcat Hollydale is contemplating the biggest challenge of his life. He's going to attempt to scale the Sears Tower with suction cups on his hands and feet, while dressed as Elvis in the hopes of jumping from the top and successfully deploying his not so colorful rappelling gear.

Happy New Year

New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count is incremented. In many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January (New Year's Day), as was the case with the Roman calendar.
