A friend of mine is an officer in the naval reserve.
A few weeks ago, he was attending a conference that included
admirals in both the US and the French navies.
At a cocktail reception, my friend found himself in a small group that
included an admiral from each of the two navies.
The French admiral started complaining that whereas Europeans learned many languages, Americans only learned English.
He then asked. "Why is it that we have to speak English in these conferences
rather than you have to speak French?"
Without even hesitating, the American admiral replied.
"Maybe it is because we arranged it so that you did not have to learn to speak German."

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can get going without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
...Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!

Sid and Al were sitting in a Chinese restaurant.
"Sid," asked Al, "are there any Jews in China?"
"I don't know," Sid replied.
"Why don't we ask the waiter?"
When the waiter came by, Al asked him,
"Are there any Chinese Jews?"
"I don't know sir, let me ask," the waiter replied, and he went into the kitchen.
He returned in a few minutes and said,
"No, sir. No, Chinese Jews."
"Are you sure?" Al asked.
"I will check again, sir," the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.
While he was still gone, Sid said,
"I cannot believe there are no Jews in China.
Our people are scattered everywhere."
When the waiter returned he said, "Sir, no Chinese Jews."
"Are you really sure?" Al asked again
."I cannot believe there are no Chinese Jews."
"Sir, I ask everyone," the waiter replied exasperated.
"We have Orange Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Grape Jews,
but we have no Chinese Jews."

A man was on holiday in the Caribbean and, liking the warm tropical weather
settled down for a day's sunbathing.
He fell asleep, and after a whole day his legs became sunburned beyond belief.
He could hardly stand the pain.
He decided to go to the doctor for treatment.
The doctor looked at his lobster-coloured legs and shook his head.
"You must realize that this is only a small village medical facility," he explained.
"I've really got nothing at all to help you.
However, try taking this just before bedtime..."
The doctor gave him one tablet of Viagra.
Puzzled, the man asked,
"I've got acute sunburn: what's a Viagra tablet going to do?"
"Not a thing for the sunburn," the doctor replied,
"but it will keep the sheets off your legs."
The woman knelt in the confessional and said,
"Bless me, father, for I have sinned."
"What is it, child?"
"Father, I have committed the sin of vanity.
Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am."
The priest turned, took a good look at her and said,
"My dear, I have good news.
That isn't a sin--it's only a mistake."

This is an incredible story.
Read to the end to see the photos.
A bear was walking across the " Rainbow Bridge" in Truckee California,
on the I-80,California /Nevada State line,
when two cars also crossed the bridge from both directions.
The bear was so scared, with no place to run, made a leap over the side of the bridge.
The motorists stopped their cars in horror of what just happened
and ran to the edge to see how badly the bear was injured.
To their amazement, they saw that bear had somehow grasped the lower ledge
of the bridge support as it fell and pulled itself b ack up.
The authorities were notified that night and after making an assessment,
they decided there was nothing that could be done until the following morning.
Authorities returned at day break to find the bear sleeping on the led ge of the bridge support.
A large, construction style,safety net was hung under the bridge
and the bear was shot with a tranquildart then safely lowered to the ground below.
The first line sounds like the opening of a bad joke but here are the pictures...

What a Wonderful World

Punctuation is very important
Dear John:I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we’re apart. I can be forever happy–will you let me be yours? Gloria

Dear John:I want a man who knows what love is. All about you are generous, kind, thoughtful people, who are not like you. Admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me. For other men, I yearn. For you, I have no feelings whatsoever. When we’re apart, I can be forever happy. Will you let me be? Yours, Gloria

Yet, the only difference is the punctuation.

An old cowboy went to a bar and ordered a drink.
As he sat sipping his whiskey, a young lady sat down next to him.
She turned to the cowboy and asked,
"Are you a real cowboy?"
He replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life on the ranch, herding horses, mending fences,
and branding cattle, so I guess I am.
"She said, "I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women.
As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about women.
When I shower, I think about women.
As I watch TV, or even eat, I think about women.
Everything seems to make me think about women."
The two sat sipping in silence.
A short time later, a man sat down on the other side of the old Cowboy and asked,
"Are you a real Cowboy?"
He replied, "I always thought I was,
but I just found out I'm a lesbian"

Female urologist
There are over 11,000 male urologists in the US.
But now a few women have entered the field.
A man goes to a female urologist for an exam.
The female doctor says, "I am going to check your prostate today,
but this new procedure is a little different from what you are probably used to.
I want you to lie on your right side, bend your knees,
then while I check your prostate, take a deep breath and say 99."
The guy obeys and says, "99!!!"
The doctor says, "Great. Now turn over on your left side, bend your knees and again,
while I repeat the check, take a deep breath and say 99."
Again, the guy says, "99."
The doctor said, "Very good. Now then, I want you to lie on your back with your knees raised slightly. I am going to check your prostate with this hand
and with the other hand I am going to hold on to your "unit."
Now take a deep breath and say 99."
The guy says, "One..two...three..."

It was the day after Christmas at a church in San Francisco.
The pastor of the church was looking over the cradle when he noticed that the baby Jesus
was missing from among the figures of the nativity set.
Immediately he turned and went outside and saw a little boy with a red wagon,
and in the wagon was the figure of the little infant, Jesus.
So he walked up to the boy and said,
"Well, where did you get Him, my fine friend?"
The little boy replied, "I got him from the church."
"And why did you take him?"
The boy said, "Well, about a week before Christmas
I prayed to the little Lord Jesus and I told him if he would bring me a red wagon
for Christmas I would give him a ride around the block in it."

Two sea monsters were swimming around the ocean,
looking for somethingto do.
They came up underneath a ship that was hauling potatoes.
Bob,the first sea monster, swam underneath the ship, tipped it over
and ate everything on the ship
.A little while later, they came up to another ship, again hauling potatoes.
Bob again capsizes the ship and eats everything on board.
The third ship they found was also hauling potatoes
and Bob once again capsized it and ate everything.
Finally his buddy Bill asked him,
"Why do you keep tipping over those ships full of potatoes and eating everything on board?"
Bob replied,"I wish I hadn't, but I just can't help myself once I start.
Everyone knows you can't eat just one potato ship

Senator Hillary Clinton was invited to address a major gathering
of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upper New York State.
She spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for increasing every
Native American's present standard of living,
should she one day become the first female President.
She referred to her career as a New York Senator,
how she had signed "YES" for every Indian issue that came to her desk for approval.
Although the Senator was vague on the details of her plan,
she seemed most enthusiastic about her future ideas
for helping her "red sisters and brothers."
At the conclusion of her speech,
the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian name -
Walking Eagle.
The proud Senator then departed in her motorcade,
waving to the crowds.
A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they come
to select the new name given to the Senator.
They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given
to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

Arthur is 90 years old.
He's played golf every day since his retirement 25 yearsago.
One day he arrives home looking downcast.
"That's it", he tells his wife.
"I'm giving up golf. Myeye sight has got so bad...
once I've hit the ball, I can'tsee where it went."
His wife sympathizes, and makes him a cup of tea.
As they sit down she says,
"Why don't you take my brother with you, and give it one more try".
"That's no good" sighs Arthur. "Your brother's a hundred and three. He can't help".
"He may be a hundred and three", says the wife,
"but his eyesight is perfect"
.So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course withhis brother-in-law.
He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down thefairway.
He turns to the brother-in-law.
"Did you see the ball?"
"Of course I did!"
"Where did it go?" says Arthur
."I can't remember".

Cartoon of the Week


You have to look at this and once you have the mural open on your screen -
click on any square and see the detail open before your eyes -
Have a look at this phenomenal work done on a mural in Cochrane Alberta.
Cochrane is a nice western style country town about 14 kilometers north west of Calgary.
Due to the heavy influx of people moving to Alberta (about 3000 per month)
Calgary has become overcrowded and housing is at a premium.
As a result more people are finding homes outside the city in nearby towns and communities. Cochrane is one of these communities
that has become of late a residential community for many people with working jobs in Calgary. This tile mural is a recent artistic project completed in their town.
It is an amazing piece of work.....if you look at each tile individually....
you can see how extremely different they all are.....
yet someone was able to assemble all the tiles together to form one large mural
This mural was unveiled recently at the Cochrane Ranche House.
Each tile is 1 foot square, is it's own individual picture and each is by a different artist.
All of them together form this huge mural.
You can click on each of the tiles to see them in detail. Check out the horse's eye.

An elderly spinster called a lawyer's office and told the receptionist
she wanted to see a lawyer about having a will prepared
. The receptionist suggested they set up an appointment for a convenient time
for the spinster to come into the office.
The spinster replied, "You must understand, I've lived alone all my life, I rarely see anyone,
and I don't like to go out.
Would it be possible for the lawyer to come to my house?"
The receptionist checked with the attorney who agreed and
he went to the spinster's home for the meeting to discuss her estate and the will.
The lawyer's first question was,
"Would you please tell me what you have in assets
and how you'd like them to be distributed under your will?
"She replied, "Besides the furniture and accessories you see here,
I have $100,000 in my savings account at the bank."
The lawyer asked, "How would you like the $100,000 distributed?"
The spinster said, "As I have told you, I've lived a reclusive life, people hardly noticed me,
so I'd like to spend $95,000 on my funeral.
The lawyer remarked, "Well, for $95,000 you will be able to have a funeral
that will certainly be noticed and will leave a lasting impression!
But tell me," he continued, "what would you like to do with the remaining $5,000?"
The spinster replied, "I've never married, I've lived alone almost my entire life
and in fact I've never slept with a man.
Before I die, I'd like to use the $5,000 to arrange for a man to sleep with me."
"This is a very unusual request," the lawyer said,
"but I'll see what I can do and get back with you."
That evening the lawyer was at home telling his wife about the eccentric spinster
and her weird request.
After thinking about how much she could do around the house with $5,000,
and with a bit of coaxing,
she got her husband to agree to provide the service himself.
The next morning she drove him to the spinster's house
and waited while he went into the house.
She waited for over an hour, but her husband didn't come out.
So she blew the car horn.
Shortly the upstairs bedroom window opened,
the lawyer stuck his head out and yelled,
"Pick me up in a couple of days!
She's going to let the County bury her!"

An attorney was sitting in his office late one night,
when the Devil appeared before him.
The Devil said to the lawyer,
“I have a proposition for you.
You can win every case you try, for the rest of your life.
Your clients will adore you, your colleagues will stand in awe of you,
and you will make embarrassing sums of money.
All I want in exchange is your soul,
your wife’s soul, your children’s souls, the souls of your parents, grandparents,
and parents-in-law, and the souls of all of your friends and law partners.”
The lawyer thought about this for a moment, then asked,
“So, what’s the catch?”
