A teenage band from a Japanese school playing Benny Goodman.  
If you are old enough you will smile,
 if you are young, 
  you will love it.
   Turn your speakers on! and watch in full view

Be sure to watch the band kid's expressions
 when the performance is over.

In a week of turmoil  in Politics, 
Australia's first female Prime Minister 
Julia Gillard was voted out by her Labor colleagues 
just three months from the Federal Election



 Monday July 1st is Canada Day

A Country Is Born

Britain's North American colonies -
 Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,
 Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland -
 grew and prospered independently. 
However, with the emergence of a more powerful United States
 after the American Civil War, 
some politicians felt a union of the British colonies
 was the only way to fend off eventual annexation. 
On July 1, 1867, Canada East, Canada West, 
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick joined together
 under the terms of the British North America Act 
to become the Dominion of Canada.
     The government of the new country was based
 on the British parliamentary system, 
with a Governor General (the Crown's representative) 
and a Parliament consisting of an elected House of Commons
 and an appointed Senate.
 Parliament received the power to legislate 
over certain matters of national interest, 
while the provinces were given legislative powers
 over matters of "particular" interest
 (such as property and education).



A man from Ontario wanted to become a Newfie.

He went to the neurosurgeon and asked, "Is there anything you can
do to me that would make me into a Newfie?".
"Sure it's easy." replied the neurosurgeon. "All I have to do is
cut out 1/3 of your brain, and you'll be a Newfie."
The man from Ontario was very pleased, and immediately underwent
the operation.
However, the neurosurgeon's knife slipped, and instead of cutting
1/3 of the patient's brain, the surgeon accidentally cut out 2/3 of 
the patient's brain. He was terribly remorseful, and waited 
impatiently beside the patient's bed as the patient recovered from the
As soon as the patient was conscious, the neurosurgeon said
to him "I'm terribly sorry, but there was a ghastly accident.
Instead of cutting out 1/3 of your brain, I accidentally cut out 2/3 of
your brain."
The patient replied "Qu'est-ce que vous avez dit, monsieur?"


A Newfie is on vacation in Texas and walks into a bar.
 He says to the bartender, "Gimme a beer, bye." 
The bartender does so and at the same time starts with some small talk.
.."From your accent, I can tell y'all're not from around here.
 Where're you from?" 

The Newfie says, "I'm from Newfoundland, bye." 

BT-- "Where's that?"

NF-- "If you go about 2000 miles straight north from here,
 then hang a right and go another 2000 miles,
 you'd be in Newfoundland."

BT-- "Wow! That's far away. 
It must be somewhere near China!"

NF-- "I expect so! I work with two Chinese fellows,
 and they go home for lunch everyday."

An Australian Bushland farmer decided one day that he would sell his cattle 
as a cash protection against a predicted drought.
 He called a cattle buyer who examined the bovines and set a price. 

Deciding it was far too low, the farmer decided he might do better 
by offering them for auction at the district fair. 

There, the cows broke loose and trampled down a gate leading to a tent 
where the district band was playing "Waltzing Matilda." 
They milled around the uniformed musicians 
and fortunately hurt no one. 

The crowd from the cattle auction followed the animals
 into the tent and cheered them on.
 When the auction resumed later, 
the cattle had gained so much attention
 they sold for twice as much as the original offer. 

This surely proves that a herd in the band is worth two in the bush.
  (By Himie Koshevoy)

With the weather sunny and warm, 
a driver was cruising down the interstate highway 
when a huge truck crashed into the side of his car
, severing his arm at the shoulder.
 Two teenagers, observing the accident,
 volunteered to rush the severed arm to the local hospital 
for considered restructuring to the driver's shoulder. 
Several hours later, with the driver at the hospital 
and no sign of the young teenagers or the man's arm,
 the police put out an APB for the teenage drivers saying,
 "This is the worse case of arm robbery in police history."
