This is one of the funniest clips I have seen for a while
Put away all your inhibitions and judgemental views and have a good laugh
Who's line is it...Drew Carey and Richard Simmons

Saw these pictures over at amyoops

All are not created equal

Ready or not, some day, it will come to an end.
There will be no more surprises: no more minutes, hours or days.
All things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass on to some else.
Your wealth, fame, and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owed or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments , frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.
So, too, will your hopes, ambitions, plans, and your to- do lists will expire.
The wins and losses, that once seemed so important, will fade away.
At the end, it won’t matter where you were born or on what side of the tracks you lived.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So, what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built…
Not what you got but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered, or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people knew you, but how many people will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
What will matter are not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom, and for what.
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstances but a matter of choice.
Are you living a life that matters?


A man and his friend meet at the club house and decide to play a round of golf together.
The man has a little dog with him and on the first green,
when the man holes out a 20 foot putt,
the little dog starts to yip and stands up on its hind legs and walks in circles.
The friend is quite amazed at this clever trick and says,
"Wow, that dog is really talented!
What does he do if you miss a putt?"
"Somersaults," says the man.
"Somersaults?!" says the friend,
"That's incredible. How many does he do?"
"Hmmm," says the man.
"That depends on how hard I kick him."

For the Ladies

Some Blue grass Christian music
I'm not much of a "churchie"
But I like this song
Alison Krauss.....Iwill fly away

A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
The jet jockey decided to show off.
The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, "watch this!"
and promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb.
He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.
The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?
The C-130 pilot said,
"That was impressive, but watch this!"
The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes
and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said:
"What did you think of that?"
Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked,
"What the heck did you do?"
The C-130 pilot chuckled.
"I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, went to the bathroom,
then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun."
The moral:
When you are young & foolish - speed & flash may seem a good thing !!!
When you get older & smarter - comfort & dull is not such a bad thing !!!

These two blokes are lost in the Sahara desert.
They're desperate for water, but just as they think they're about to die,
they chance upon a village where market day is in full swing.
They go to the first stall they see and ask if they can buy some water.
"No," replies the Bedouin stall owner,
"I only sell fruit. Try the next stall."
So off they go to the next stall and again they ask for water.
"Sorry," says the merchant, "But I only sell custard."
"Custard?" one of the blokes says to the other,
"What kind of place is this?"
By now desperate, they go to the next stall, only to be told,
"Sorry, but I only sell jelly."
Hearing this, one of the blokes turns to the other and says,
"This is a trifle bazaar."

Gas crisis

Another Al Gore cartoon

A little girl was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story.
From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book
and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek.
She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again.
Finally she spoke up, "Grandpa, did God make you?"
"Yes, sweetheart," he answered, "God made me a long time ago."
"Oh," she said.
"Grandpa, did God make me, too?"
"Yes, indeed, honey," he said.
"God made you just a little while ago.
"Feeling their respective faces again, she observed,
"God's getting better at it, isn't he ?"

Evolution of man

stolen from Shelleys Snippets

The makers of well-known French Mustard have issued the following statement:
“We at wish to put an end to rumours that our product is made in France.
There is no relationship, nor has there ever been a relationship,
between our mustard and the country of France.
Indeed, our mustard in manufactured in England.
The only thing that France and our Mustard
have in common is that they are both yellow.”

A man and his wife had been married for several years.
About two years into their marriage the husband began
carrying a picture of Pam around in his wallet,
something she had noticed but didn't comment on for several months.
Every once in awhile she'd catch him looking at her photo
and finally her curiosity got the best of her.
"I notice that several months ago you started carrying a photo of me with you.
Why?" asked the wife.
The husband smiled at his wife stating,
"whenever there is an overwhelming problem or stress in my life
I simply pull out your picture, stare at it,
and the problem or stress suddenly disappears."
"Wow!" responded his wife.
"I have that strong of a miraculous influence on you?"
"Of course you do," he said.
"I see your picture and say to myself,
'what greater problem in the world is there than this one?'"

Todays Music
One of the finest groups to come from New Zealand and make it big ,
both in Australia and New Zealand was Max Merritt and the Meteors
Why they didn't go onto bigger and better things in the States or Europe is a bit bewildering
If you read the comments about the clip on You Tube,
you will see that back in their heyday DJ Wolfman Jack in the States
played their hits quite regularly on his radio show
This clip ,although over 40 years ago is still as good as back then
Max Merritt and the Meteors....Slippin Away
