    Do you remember?

    Subject: Fw: Do you remember?


    Pasta had not been invented. It was macaroni or spaghetti.

    Curry was a surname.

    A take-away was a mathematical problem.

    Pizza? Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere.

    Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time.

    All chips were plain.

    A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining.

    Brown bread was something only poor people ate.

    Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking.

    Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green.

    Cubed sugar was regarded as posh.

    Chickens didn’t have fingers in those days.

    None of us had ever heard of yogurt.

    Healthy food consisted of anything edible.

    Cooking outside was called camping.

    Seaweed was not a recognized food.

    ‘Kebab’ was not even a word, never mind a food.

    Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.

    Prunes were medicinal.

    Surprisingly muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed.

    Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one.

    Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it they would have become a laughing stock.

    The one thing that we never ever had on/at our table in the fifties…was elbows, hats and cell phones!

    Things to ponder :

    Elder Person’s Perspective

    1. I’m not saying let’s go kill all the stupid people. I’m just saying let’s
    Remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People move out of the way
    Much faster now.

    3. You can tell a lot about a woman’s mood just by her hands. If they are
    Holding a gun, she’s probably ticked.

    4. Gone are the days when girls cooked like their mothers. Now they drink
    Like their fathers.

    5. You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like someone
    You’ve just met? That’s common sense leaving your body.

    6. I don’t like making plans for the day. Because then the word
    "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

    7. I didn’t make it to the gym today. That makes 1,500 days in a row.

    8. I decided to change calling the bathroom "the John" and renamed it "the
    Jim." I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

    9. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers.
    If you find one, what’s your plan?

    10. Everyone has a right to be stupid. Politicians just abuse the privilege.

    Conservative vs. Liberal Beliefs 

    This is a good, albeit black and white [no pun intended] view on a range of topics. For those outside the USA it might help allow better understanding of the terms used for Democrats and Republicans. While written for the US "eye" it could most likely portray the generic (i.e. again black & white) views of Labor & Liberal parties in Australia. We make no editorial other than it is really unlikely that every person will agree with everything on one side or the other. Hence the "stand off" in traditional political party democracies which can fall too easily on a 50-50 split and leave the balance of power in a country in the hands of a few "independents" or minor parties.

    I found this to be a quick summary of positions. Helps to clarify my thinking. BA


    I saw this on a website and thought it was a interesting breakdown of differences between two schools of thought, you can decide for yourself of where you fit in, for me it is difficult because I have thoughts on both sides of the issues.

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: UNDERSTANDINGS

    This has been around before but this time I related to some of these more than others. BA

    A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
    A Death Certificate shows that we died

    Pictures show that we live!

    Have a seat.
    Relax . . .
    and read this slowly.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_01 I Believe…
    That just because two people argue,

    It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
    And just because they don’t argue,
    It doesn’t mean they do love each other.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_02 I Believe…
    That we don’t have to change friends if
    We understand that friends change.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_03 I Believe….
    That no matter how good a friend is,
    they’re going to hurt you,
    every once in a while
    and you must forgive them for that.
    20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_04 I Believe…..
    That true friendship continues to grow,
    even over the longest distance.
    Same goes for true love.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_05 I Believe…
    That you can do something in an instant
    That will give you heartache for life.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_06 I Believe….
    That it’s taking me a long time
    To become the person I want to be.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_07 I Believe…
    That you should always leave loved ones with Loving words.

    It may be the last time you see them.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_08 I Believe….
    That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_09 I Believe….
    That we are responsible for what
    We do, no matter how we feel.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_10 I Believe…
    That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_11 I Believe….
    That heroes are the people
    who do what has to be done
    when it needs to be done,

    regardless of the consequences.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_12 I Believe….
    That my best friend and I
    can do anything or nothing
    and have the best time
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_13 I Believe….
    That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re
    down will be the ones to help you get back up .
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_14 I Believe…
    That sometimes when I’m angry
    I have the right to be angry, but that
    doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_15 I Believe…
    That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had
    And what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
    20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_16 I Believe…..
    That it isn’t always enough,
    to be forgiven by others.

    Sometimes, you have to learn
    to forgive yourself.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_17 I Believe…
    That no matter how bad
    your heart is broken,

    the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_18 I Believe….
    That our background and circumstances
    may have influenced who we are, but,
    we are responsible for who we become.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_19 I Believe…
    That you shouldn’t be
    so eager to find out a secret.
    It could change your life forever.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_20 I Believe….
    Two people can look at the exact same
    Thing and see something totally different.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_21 I Believe…
    That your life can be changed
    in a matter of hours
    by people who don’t even know you.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_22 I Believe…
    That even when you think
    you have no more to give,
    When a friend cries out to you,
    you will find the strength to help.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_23 I Believe…
    That credentials on the wall
    do not make you a decent human being.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_24 I Believe…
    That the people you care about
    most in life are taken from you too soon.
     20150628_WORDPRESS_Understandings_25 I Believe…
    That you should send this to
    all of the people that you believe in.
    I just did.
    ‘The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
    They just make the most of everything they have.

    great commercial 

    Forwarded message
    From: Ken W
    Date: 22 June 2015 at 02:30
    Subject: Fw: great commercial

    This is a great commercial… among the best to date! Especially now when
    most of the new commercials on TV are sick and dumb!!
    Even Budweiser couldn’t top this one…Well Done Guinness !!

    Usually beer commercials are full of goofy characters and funny gags, but
    this one carries an important message.
    Guinness’ "Empty Chair" salutes the character of a community as they honor
    one of their own who is out of sight, but not out of mind. They remind us
    that a true test of character is what you do when no one’s looking.
