    Subject: 50 yrs of marriage!!! :>)

    After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, "Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 23-year-old girl.

    Now … I have a $750,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 73-year-old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things."

    My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

    Aren’t older women great?

    They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems!

    Fiscall Cliff 


    This is absolutely amazing, thought provoking and humourous all at the same time.

    So we're posting it on our blog of the same name – http://czarnik-life.posterous.com/  so that the widest possible audience can get the hint and maybe give the hint to the politicians!

    Thanks and Happy New Year

    Good Impersonation 


    Wow, he is GOOD.  Your right, he was spot on.  Though now he would have to dye his hair a bit more grey!

    But it's a mute point about stopping his act.  He passed away on 3 Mar, 2012 (if you believe the Internet and are not a conspiry theorist!)

                             Want a chuckle? Spot on.


    You may remember Steve Bridges as the guy who imitated George

    Bush so well on the Jay Leno Show.

    He has now started imitating Obama and REALLY does it really well.

    The Administration has tried to put a stop to Bridges' act, because

    Obama has made it known that he is deeply offended. Yes, he's that good…….

    For all retired Husbands

    Subject: For all retired Husbands


    It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are over-sensitive, and there's nothing worse than an over-sensitive woman.

    My name is John. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife. When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Patricia to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.

    Although she knows how hungry I am, she says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club, so eating out is unreasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner.

    I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

    Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think.For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, Boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

    When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the lawn.

    I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

    I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support my wife. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, Guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.

    John, died suddenly on January 31 of a perforated rectum. The police report says he was found with a Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife was arrested and charged with murder. The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that John, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.

    common sense

    Common Sense

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: 

    – Knowing when to come in out of the rain; 
    – Why the early bird gets the worm; 
    – Life isn’t always fair; and
    – Maybe it was my fault. 

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and  reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. 

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. 

    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. 

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the Churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. 

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could                    sue you for assault. 

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, launched a lawsuit and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. 

    Common Sense was preceded in death,
    – by his parents, Truth and Trust,
    – by his wife, Discretion,
    – by his daughter, Responsibility,
    – and by his son, Reason. 

    He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers
    – I Know My Rights 
    – I Want It Now 
    – Someone Else Is To Blame 
    – I’m A Victim
    – Pay me for Doing Nothing 

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. 

    If you still remember him, pass this on.   If not, join the majority and do nothing.

    New Corning Technology 

    Thanks for this.  Again the future.  Glad there was at least a few frames where they mentioned smudge free and streak free.  If we're going to be stroking and touching glass more and more like we do the iPhone then we want to make sure we don't have to keep cleaning it!
    Thanks again

    Boat People’s Poem 

    This is FANTASTIC.  We're doing one better than forwarding to all Australian's we know, we're posting it on http://czarnik-life.posterous.com where everyone can see it and anyone can go back again and again and not have to keep it on their computer (or Mac!)
    If you ever want to got back to find it, you can either click on the Basil tag, or search (search box is next to magnifying lens, right hand side top, just under title word "amazing").  Using "Poem" (without the quotes will probably work), but you can use just about any word to search for a particular topic.
    Travel safely,

     I cross ocean, poor and broke. 
    Take bus, see employment folk. 


    Nice man treat me good in there. 
    Say I need to see welfare. 


    Welfare say, 'You come no more, we send cash right to your door. " 


    Welfare cheques – they make you wealthy! Medicare – it keep you healthy! 


    By and by, I get plenty money. 
    Thanks to you, you Aussie dummy! 


    Write to friends in motherland. 
    Tell them 'come fast as you can.. " 
    They come in turbans and  Toyota trucks,
    And buy big house with welfare bucks! 
    They come here, we live together. 
    More welfare cheques, it gets better! 
    Fourteen families, they moving in, 
    But neighbour's patience wearing thin. 
    Finally, Aussie guy moves away. 
    Now I buy his house, then I say, 
    'Find more immigrants for house to rent. " 
    And in the yard I put a tent. 
    Everything is very good, 
    And soon we own the neighborhood. 
    We have hobby, it's called breeding. Welfare pay for baby feeding. 
    Kids need dentist? Wives need pills? We get free! We got no bills! 
    Australians crazy! They work all year, to keep the welfare running here. 
    We think Australia  darn good place. 
    Too darn good for Aussie race! 
    If they no like us, they can scram. Got lots of room in Afghanistan !
