The footy season is over for the Eagles after Collingwood beat them on Friday night. The Magpies now meet the Geelong Cats and I guess most footy fans will now support the Cats who haven't won a Grand Final since 1963

Saw this video posted on a couple of Blogs and those of us that are getting a bit long in the tooth can probably relate to it

An Italian and a Greek were boasting about which empire
gave most to the foundations of the modern world
The Greek claimed that Greece had laid the foundations of democracy.
The Roman countered by saying that Rome had established modern government systems.
The Greek claimed that Greece had laid the foundations of great art and sculpture.
The Roman countered by saying that Rome had set the pattern for modern military organisation.
The Greek claimed that Greece had introduced sex.
The Roman countered by observing that Rome had introduced the idea to include women.

Two kids are arguing over whose father is the wimpiest.

The first one says,
" My dad is so scared that when it's lightning and thundering,
he slides underneath the bed."

The second kid says,
"That's nothing.

My dad is so scared that when my mother works the nightshift,
he sleeps with the woman next door.

10 Things You Better Off Not Knowing About Your Body
1. The average human body comprises enough fat to make seven bars of soap,
enough iron to make a medium sized nail,
enough potassium to explode a toy cannon,
enough lime to whitewash a small chicken coop,
enough sugar to fill a jam jar,
and enough sulphur to rid a dog of fleas.
2. A complete skeleton is worth between $5,000 and $7,500 to a medical student;
your skull alone would fetch only about $450.
3. Your mouth produces about one quart of saliva per day.
4. Demodex folliculorum has eight stumpy legs and a tail,
is about a third of a millimeter long,
and loves nothing more than to recline in the warm,
oily pits of your hair follicles.
Most adults have this mite, usually on the head, but especially in eyelashes.
And often, they’re in nipples.
5. You have approximately 4,000 wax glands in each ear.
6. The average adult stool weighs about 4 ounces.
And half of the bulk of your feces comprises the dead bodies of bacteria
that live inside your intestines.
7. The average male foot exudes half a pint of sweat each day.
8. If it weren’t for the slimy mucous that clings to and lines the walls of your gut,
your stomach would readily digest itself.
9. The average person will pass about 11,000 gallons of urine in a lifetime.
10. A man weighing 200 lbs. would provide enough meat
to feed 100 cannibals in one sitting.


A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynaecologist.
"Come now," coaxed the doctor, "you've been seeing me for years!
There's nothing you can't tell me."
"This one's kind of strange..."
"Let me be the judge of that," the doctor replied.
"Well," she said, "yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning
and heard a plink-plink-plink in the toilet
and when I looked down, the water was full of five cent pieces."
"I see."
"That afternoon I went to the bathroom again and, plink-plink-plink,
there were fifty cent coins in the bowl."
"That night," she went on,
"I went again,plink-plink-plink, and there were dollar coins
and this morning there were two dollar coins!
You've got to tell me what's wrong with me!" she implored,
"I'm scared out of my wits!"
The gynaecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder.
"There, there, it's nothing to be scared about..."

"You're simply going through the change!

"You really don't appreciate a lot of stuff at school until you get older.
It's the little things like being spanked by a middle aged woman ...
Stuff you have to pay good money for in later life"

A long time ago, there was a beehive in the middle of a forest.
Every day, worker bees went to the fields, gathered pollen,
and brought it back to make honey.
The bees had a problem, though.
Occasionally, an intruder came around,
such as a bear who wanted the honey,
or kids who threw rocks at the hive.
Finally, the bees got tired of it.
They built an alarm system for the hive.
A bee could pull a lever, which triggered the alarm.
The bees could come back to protect their home.
One bee was exclusively assigned that job.
He was named the "Lever Bee."
He had to be constantly on the alert.
And that's why people say,
"I'm as ready as a Lever Bee."

Well not everyone will be backing the Cats (Handbag swingers that they are). In reality I think last Friday's match was a contest to see who Geelong will belt this week. Guess what? We won "Big Fella."
