The trip to Sydney has thrown the blog sequence out a bit
Will still publish twice a week but now be on different days
You will notice on the right hand side I have added a couple of more "Blogs that I read"
Check them out , Iknow that you will enjoy them

Over at Tacky Raccoons I found these
The first is a Doo Wop song from 1962 by the Five Discs
entitled "Never Let you Go"

Not only is it a great tune it is complimented with a great movie clip from the 1938
zany comedy "You can't take it with you"
starring James Stewart and Jean Arthur

The second great Video Clip was The 1959 Marty Robbins hit El Paso

What makes this so good is the cameo role played out by Steve Martin

Ithink this was made for MTV in the early 70's

For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an "Australian treasure!" General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.

You'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.

Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL COSGROVE: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL COSGROVE: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.
Thanks Geoff Collins

An elder Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren.
He said to them:
"A fight is going on inside of me. A terrible fight.
It is between two wolves.
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.
The other stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humanity, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
The same fight is going on inside you and inside every other person too."
They thought about it for a minute,
then one child asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied..."The one you feed."

New Babies
The new father ran out of the delivery room and announced to the rest of his family
who were waiting for the news:
"We had twins!"
The family was so excited they immediately asked,
"Who do they look like?"
The father paused, smiled, and said, "Each other."
A man goes to the Birth Registration Office to register his newborn son.
The man behind the counter asks the name he wants to give to the boy,

The man says: "What?
There weren't any objections when
I called my first two sons Mark and Frank."
"There's a new baby at our house," little Sally (aged 4) informed the mailman.
"Is that so? Is he going to stay?" asked the mailman.
"I think so," replied Sally glumly.
"He's got all his things off."
One day, shortly after the birth of their new baby,
the mother had to go out to do some errands,
so the proud father stayed home to watch his wonderful new son.
Soon after the mother left, the baby started to cry.
The father did everything he could think of, but the baby just wouldn't stop crying.
Finally, the dad got so worried he decided to take the infant to the doctor.
After the doctor listened to all the father had done to get the baby to stop crying,
the doctor began to examine the baby's ears, chest and then down to the diaper area.
When he opened the diaper, he found was indeed full
."Here's the problem," the doctor explained.
"He just needs to be changed."
The perplexed father remarked,
"But the diaper package specifically says it's good for up to 10 pounds!"

Top Ten Signs You’re a Fundamentalist Christian
10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions,
but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.
9 - You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved
from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim
that we were created from dirt.
8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.
7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah,
but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah
slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus”
and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua”
including women, children, and trees!
6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans,
and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women,
but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary,
who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed,
came back to life and then ascended into the sky.
5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes
in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years),
but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen
sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.
4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those
who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects -
will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering.
And yet consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving.”
3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology,
and physics have failed to convince you otherwise,
some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues”
may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.
2 - You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers.
You consider that to be evidence that prayer works.
And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.
1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible,
Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.
