You Shall Not Pass, Dog

Koko is quite possibly the world's most famous gorilla.
 Her ability to learn sign language and communicate 
with her human caretakers has captivated the world for years. 
She's always had a special love for kittens,
 so she was delighted when she was allowed 
to pick out two kittens to love.
 Although you might fear what could happen
 to such delicate babies in the hands of such a large primate
, the way she handles them will leave you in awe.

Koko gets a return visit from the two kittens she selected
 from a litter of seven the week before
. She's tentatively named them "Tiger" and "Blackie" 
(for obvious reasons).
 The question is will Koko tire of the kittens 
or want them to stay as her permanent guests at the Gorilla Foundation.
 After much playing, enrichment and affection,
 the answer seems clear. 
While this does not satisfy Koko's dearest wish
 which is to raise a gorilla (or other great ape) baby
, it provides a loving experience for gorilla snd kittens.
 Message: Koko seems to be a Kitten Person


April Fools Day

As we all know, April 1st is that day we traditionally 
play practical jokes on each other.

In this particular town it is the custom
 for such jokes to end at Noon.

Last April 1st, John and Big Hoss 
(two rookie policemen) were patrolling the downtown business area. 
They decided to stop into the local coffee shop
 for a coffee and a donut.
 The time was 11:55 AM.

Three minutes later, they got a call on their police radio,
 "33 in process, man in bank dressed as a banana."

Well there was only 1 bank in town; 
in fact, it was just across from the coffee shop.
 And a 33 was an "armed robbery",
 but it was also just 11:58 AM
John and Big Hoss decided it was the dispatcher
 playing a joke on them.

They continued enjoying their coffee break.

At 12:01 PM, they got a second call on their radio, 
"Repeat, Urgent, 33 in process,
 man in bank dressed as a banana."

Realizing it was past noon, 
they rushed across the street,
 but arrived 30 seconds after the banana split.

My Way Back Home -
 My Sister's Birthday Surprise Video



An American astronaut has an emergency during 
his re-entry into earth's atmosphere and his space craft
 crash-lands in the Australian bush,
 way out in the middle of nowhere.
 After what seems like an eternity, he wakes up in a bush clinic,
 very rustic, dirty, with foul smells 
and he is bandaged from head to foot.
 He sees a very large, somewhat gruff looking nurse
 approaching him as he lies in his cot.
 "Did I come here to die?" he says
 with a deep sense of resignation and fear.
 "No," the Aussie nurse replies,
 "You came here yesterday."

  and in Australia

and Western Australia

This is the biggest load ever to be moved in West Australia.

It weighed over 700 tons with four trucks towing
 and two pushing it on the gravel.
They were travelling at 4 Km’s per hour on the gravel
 reaching 6km’s hour on the bitumen, 
the distance to the new mine is 230 Km’s they drove up to 15 hours a day
 taking 6 days to reach their destination
 (this also included becoming bogged with four front end 
loaders having trouble pulling it out)

 Goodbye Granddad
 Poor old Granddad's passed away, cut off in his prime,
 He never had a day off crook - gone before his time,
 We found him in the dunny, collapsed there on the seat,
 A startled look upon his face,
 his trousers around his feet,
 The doctor said his heart was good - fit as any trout,
 The Constable he had his say,
 'foul play' was not ruled out.
 There were theories at the inquest of snakebite without trace
 Of redbacks quietly creeping and death from outer space,
 No-one had a clue at all - the judge was in some doubt,
 When Dad was called to have his say
 as to how it came about,
 'I reckon I can clear it up,'
 said Dad with trembling breath,
 'You see it's quite a story
 - but it could explain his death.'
 'This here exploration mob had been looking at our soil,
 And they reckoned that our farm 
was just the place for oil,
 So they came and put a bore down 
and said they'd make some trials,
 They drilled a hole as deep as hell, 
they said about three miles.
 Well, they never found a trace of oil and
off they went, post haste,
 And I couldn't see a hole like that go to flamin' waste,
 So I moved the dunny over it -
 real smart move I thought,
 I'd never have to dig again -
 I'd never be 'caught short'.
 The day I moved the dunny, it looked a proper sight,
 But I didn't dream poor Granddad 
would pass away that night,
 Now I reckon what has happened 
- poor Granddad didn't know,
 The dunny was re-located when that night he had to go.
 And you'll probably be wondering 
how poor Granddad did his dash--
 Well, he always used to hold his breath
 Until he heard the splash!!

'There was considerable consternation among the cats
 in the Coliseum when it was learned that the tigers
 were taking the lions' share of the prophets. 

Two Muslims have crashed a speedboat into the Thames barrier in London. 
Police think it might be the start of Ram-a-dam

A planeload of Pepsi flying over Africa had a malfunction and went down. 
 A few weeks later, the Pepsi Company sent a rescue plane. 
 They searched the area and found a tribe of cannibals.  
They walked up to the Chief of the tribe 
and asked him if he knew anything about the crash. 
 The Chief said, "You betcha!" 

     When asked where the crew was, the Chief replied,
 "We ate the crew, and we drank the Pepsi."  
The Rescue crew were shocked. 
     One man asked, "Did you eat their legs?" 
     The chief replied, "We ate their legs, and we drank the Pepsi." 
     Another rescuer asked, 
"Did you eat their arms?" 
     The Chief replied,
 "We ate their arms, and we drank the Pepsi." 
     After looking totally perplexed for a minute, a third asked, 
"Did you... you know... eat, their... their 'things?'" 
     The Chief says, "No." 
     "No?" asked the rescuer. 
     "No," replied the Chief. 
 "THINGS go better with Coke."

 and February 2014).

Angelina Jolie

After years of success and crazy amounts of fame, 
Jolie still is a huge humanitarian. 
She even chose to make her directorial debut with
 “In the Land of Blood and Honey,”
 a film raising awareness of women who suffered mass rape
 during the war in Bosnia. 
This choice was not made with fame in mind, clearly,
 seeing it was performed and written in Bosnian

Keanu Reeves

In recent years, it’s come out that Reeves’s 
doesn’t care much about money. 
In fact, he went as far as giving away $80 million
 from his Matrix salary to the special-effects team,
 as well as the costume designers
 that worked on the trilogy.
 All because he believes that they deserve all the credit,
 not him, for the series success.

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for using her fame to advocate being yourself,
 no matter how different you think you are. 
After hearing one of her fans had killed himself
 after being bullied over his sexuality,
 she streamed his picture during one of her concerts
 and dedicated the entire show to him,
 as an act of solidarity for him
 and others around the world 
who might be suffering similar situations.

Johnny Depp

After 9-year-old Beatrice wrote to Depp
 asking him to assist in throwing a mutiny over her teachers,
the actor showed up to the London primary school to do just that

Odds and Ends

The mother turkey was having a hard time keeping track 
of her young ones in the turkey pen.  
They were always running away and refusing to obey their mother. 
 This was a regular occurrence.
  Exhausted from running all around one day,
 she just sat down and, from afar, 
scolded her young ones who were all over the place. 
 "You young birds are such misbehavers 
and you're always getting into all kinds of mischief," she gobbled. 
"If your grandfather could see what you have become,
 he would be turning over in his gravy!" --


Royal Navy Field Gun Competition 1997


This weeks Signs

A career military man, who had retired as a corporal,
 was telling the younger men how he handled officers
 during his years of service.
 "It didn't matter a hoot if he was a Major General,
 an Admiral, or the Commander-in-Chief.
 I always told those guys exactly where to get off.
 "Wow, you must have been something,"
 the admiring young soldiers remarked." 
What was your job in the service?" 
"Elevator operator in the Pentagon."
