    Two Interesting Years 

    UR & AB,
     
    I would upset the Aussies if I told you what I told you what I think of the Ashes, so we'll leave you with an supposedly unbiased article.
     
     
    You know of course that Charles & Diana's son William has announced his engagement (he's 2nd in line for the throne after his father Charles).  In fact I suggested and some Internet news decided to poll to see if Charles should make way for William should Elizabeth die.  Not that I am a monarchist, but it would be the best thing to happen to the monarchy!
     
    In the mean time, I'll go warn the Pope!
     
    Thanks,
    Larry & Colleen

    What are the Ashes that they are referring too?

    1981 & 2005 – Two Interesting Years


     

    Interesting Year 1981
    1. Prince Charles got married.
    2. Liverpool crowned soccer Champions of Europe.
    3. Australia lost the Ashes.
    4. The Pope died.

     

     


     

    Interesting Year 2005
    1. Prince Charles got married.
    2. Liverpool crowned soccer Champions of Europe.
    3. Australia lost the Ashes.
    4. The Pope died.

     

     

    Lesson to be learned:
    The next time Charles gets married, someone should warn the Pope.

    Ten thoughts to ponder

    Ten Thoughts to Ponder


    Number 10

    Life is sexually transmitted.


    Number 9

    Good health is merely the slowest possible
    rate at which one can die.


    Number 8
    Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny.
    If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich
     ..


    Number 7
    Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,
    teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.


    Number 6

    Some people are like a Slinky
     not 
    really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them 
    down the stairs.


    Number 5

    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday,
    lying in hospitals, dying of nothing.


    Number 4
    All of us could take a lesson from the weather.
    It pays no attention to criticism.


    Number 3
    Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00,
    and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?


    Number 2
    In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.
    Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.


    And The Number 1 Thought
    Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers;
    what you do today, might 
    burn your 
    backside tomorrow.


    – – – and as someone recently said to me: "Don't worry about old age; it doesn't last long.

    Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven , God was missing for six 
    days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the 
    seventh day. He inquired of God, 'Where have you been?' 

    God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, 'Look Michael, look what I've made.' 
    Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, 'What is it?' 

    'It's a planet,' replied God, 'and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call 
    It Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance' 

    'Balance?', inquired Michael, still confused. 

    God explained, pointing to different parts of earth, 'For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot.

    Over here I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a 
    continent of black people,' God continued, pointing to different 
    countries 'This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.' 

    The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a large land 
    mass and said, 'What's that one?' 

    'Ah,' said God. 'That's Michigan , the most glorious place on earth. 
    You'll notice that it is made in the fashion of my hand, the Hand of 
    God. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, sunsets and rolling hills. The 
    people from  Michigan are going to be modest, intelligent and 
    humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world. They 
    will be extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving, and they 
    will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace' 

    Michael gasped in wonder and admiration.


    Only THOSE who have grown up in Michigan will forward this e-mail!

    A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

    'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'
    'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

    A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'

    Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun.
    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation

    The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

    2 The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

    3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself
    spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

    (THIS GETS BETTER!)

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because:

    1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

    2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

      
        
        
     
         The women  won.

    Send this to all the smart  women you know…and all the men that have a sense of  humor.

     Tired of all those “recording stars” singing the national anthem?  Here’s what our military can do. 
    If this doesn’t put a lump in your throat, and fill your heart with PRIDE, you need to move to another country.

    HUGS,
     
    subj: FW: Smoking a joint
     

    A TALE FROM DOWN UNDER
    A koala was sitting in a gum tree smoking a joint

    Att00001

    When a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, 'Hey Koala! What are you doing?'
     
     
     
     

    Att00002

    The koala said, 'Smoking a joint, come up and have some.'
     
     
     

    Att00003

    So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few hits. After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was 'dry' and that he was going to get a drink from the river.
     
     

    Att00004


    The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned over too far and fell into the river.
    A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, 'What's the matter with you?'

    The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he had been sitting with the koala in the tree, smoking a joint, but got too stoned and fell into the river while taking a drink…

    The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the rain forest, found the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said,

    Att00005

    'Hey you!'

     
     
    So the koala looked down at him and said,

    Att00006

    'Shiiiiiiiiiiit dude…
    How much
    water did you drink?

    A BOTTLE OF WINE—-A TOUCHING STORY  

     

    Image001

     

     

    THE BOTTLE OF WINE

     

     For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren’t married

    This is  something to smile  about  next  time you  see  a bottle of wine:

     

    Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in  Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo

        woman walking on the side of the road..
     

    As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.

     

    With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.

     

    Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman.

     

    The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she

     noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.
     

    ‘What in bag?’ asked the old woman .

     

    Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, ‘It’s a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband.’

     

    The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.  Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder,

     

    she said:

     

    ‘Good trade’.
