    Northern Lights move south to Michigan 

    They say the Northern Lights (or their southern counterparts aurora australis (or the southern lights) are a spectacular sight.

    Apparently the northern version was seen recently as far south as Grand Rapids of western Michigan.

    Here’s a link to an article with views from space, a gallery from the ground and more (just click on the various links in the article)

    Kulula Airlines ( Around before ?) 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Ralph & BA 
    Date: 20 October 2011 03:59
    Subject: Fw: Kulula Airlines ( Around before ?)

     

     
    Kulula is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn't 
    take itself too seriously.   Check out their new livery!  
    And have a read about their Customer Relations.





















    WHAT A PITY KULULA DOESN'T FLY INTERNATIONALLY – WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM IF ONLY FOR THEIR HUMOUR – SO TYPICALLY SOUTH AFRICAN.
     

    Kulula is an Airline with head office situated in  Johannesburg  .
    Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported:

    On a Kulula flight, (there is no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced, "People, people we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!"

                      —o0o—

    On another flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."

                      —-o0o—

    On landing, the stewardess said, "Please be sure to take all of your belongings.. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have."

                      —-o0o—

    "There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane."
     
                      —o0o—

    "Thank you for flying Kulula. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride."

                      —o0o—

    As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Durban Airport , a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella. WHOA!"

                      —o0o–

    After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the  Karoo  , a flight attendant on a flight announced, "Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as hell everything has shifted."

                      —o0o—

    From a Kulula employee: " Welcome aboard Kulula 271 to  Port Elizabeth  . To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public
    unsupervised."

                      —o0o—

    "In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favorite."

                      —o0o—

    Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Kulula Airlines."

                      —-o0o—

    "Your seats cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."

                      —o0o—
    "As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings.   Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses.."

                      —o0o—

    And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"

                      —o0o—

    Heard on Kulula 255 just after a very hard landing in Cape Town: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault, it was the asphalt."

                      —o0o—

    Overheard on a Kulula flight into  Cape Town  , on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain really had to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to The Mother City. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"

                      —o0o—

    Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: "We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."

                      —o0o—

    An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a "Thanks for flying our airline. He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment.
    Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane.

    She said, "Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?"
    "Why, no Ma'am," said the pilot. "What is it?"
    The little old lady said, "Did we land, or were we shot down?"

                      —o0o—

    After a real crusher of a landing in  Johannesburg  , the attendant came on with, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we will open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal.."

                      —o0o—

    Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: "We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today.. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of Kulula Airways."

                      —o0o—

    Heard on a Kulula flight. "Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing.. If you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em."

                      —o0o—

    His and Her Diaries 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Ralph & BA

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: His and Her Diaries

       
     Some guys are clueless… at least everyone I've Met!!!!! 

     

    A very fine example of the different thinking between male & female of our species:

     

     HIS AND HER DIARIES FOR THE SAME DAY:

     

     Her Diary:

      Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet 

    at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it.

     Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so

    we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset.

    He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.

      On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you,  too.'

      When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore..  He just sat there quietly, and watched TV.

    He continued to seem distant and absent.  Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed.

      About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep – I cried.

    I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

     His Diary:

     Boat wouldn't start, can't figure out why.
