There was this ancient story teller...

One of his stories was about a Kingdom
 that was having a lot of crime so the King said,
 "Whoever comes up with a solution
 that works will be greatly rewarded."
 Many tried but their solutions did not work
 until this Old Man said he had the solution.

He asked to tear down all the jails and prisons. 
 Then he had one jail for one person built.
  Right away they had someone
 who committed a crime.
 The Old Man said: 
 "Put him in jail."

Very soon another committed a crime
 and the officers came to ask the Old Man
 what to do with him to which the Old Man answered: 
 "Kill the first one and put this one in jail!" 
 That ended the crime in the Kingdom. 


Airline Funnies
Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles ..."
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"


Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 degrees."
TWA 2341: "We are at 35,000 feet. 
How much noise can we make up here?"
Tower: "Have you ever heard the noise a 747
 makes when it hits a 727?"


A DC-10 had come in a little fast 
and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down.
San Jose Tower Noted:
 "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, 
if you are able.
If you are not able, 
take the Guadalupe exit off Highway 101, 
make a right at the lights and return to the airport."

Hard to believe

"Serial Taxi" by Paolo Cogliati


Upon arriving home, a husband was met
 at the door by his sobbing wife.
 Tearfully, she explained,
 "It's the druggist.
 He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone."

Immediately the husband drove downtown
 to confront the druggist, and demand an apology.
 Before he could say more then a word or two,
 the druggist said,
 "Now just a minute, Mr. Johnson!
 Listen to my side of it..."

"This morning the alarm failed to go off, 
so I was late getting up. 
I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car,
 only to realize that I had locked the house,
 and car keys were inside
. I had to break a window to get my keys. 
Then, driving a little too fast, 
I got a speeding ticket.
 Later, when I was about three blocks from the store
, I had a flat tire.
 When I finally got to the store,
 there were a bunch of people waiting for me to open up.
 I got the store opened,
 and started waiting on these people.
 All the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook.
 I had to break open a roll of nickels against 
the cash register drawer to make change,
 and they spilled all over the floor.
 I got down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels
 The phone was still ringing. 
When I came up, I cracked my head on the open cash drawer
. That made me stagger back against a showcase
 with a bunch of perfume bottles on it, 
and half of them hit the floor and broke.
 Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up.
 When I finally got to answer it,
 it was your wife
. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer
. And believe me Mister, as God is my witness.
.. all I did was tell her!"


In the spring of 2013, Canadian adventurer Bruce Kirkby
 crossed the Georgia Straight
 from Vancouver to Victoria 
on an inflatable standup paddleboard. 



This will keep you busy for a while....
If you ever wanted to visit here
Well, here is a sneak preview

Here is something special, a virtual tour
 of the Smithsonian Museum room by room.
 It is really something with a 360 degree
 viewing by using your cursor. 
You easily spend days/weeks looking at everything.
 Just marvelous for kids and adults.
 Follow the blue arrows on the floor
 to move into new rooms.

Shows inside and outside of the museum 

and there little cameras here and there
 which show detailed info on certain things.
 If you click on the floors (upper right corner) 
you get a floor plan of that floor
 and you can click on a blue circle
 and go directly to that room.

Truly incredible web site.

Watch it in full screen when you open this up. 
 Use the roller on your mouse to move in and out.
 Look for the "arrows" on the floor and click on them.
 They take you to other places.

The unexplained!!!!


In the smoking-car the conversation turned 
to the merits and demerits
 of various ways of preserving health.
One stout, florid man held forth 
with great eloquence on the subject.
"Look at me!" he said.
 "Never a day's sickness in my life,
 and all due to simple food.
 Why, gentlemen," he continued, 
"from the age of twenty to that of forty, 
I lived an absolutely simple regular life;
 no effeminate delicacies,
 no late hours, no extravagances.
"Every day, in fact, summer and winter, 
I was in bed regularly at nine o'clock 
and up again at five in the morning.
 I worked from eight to one, then had dinner-
-a plain dinner, mark my words:
 after that, an hour's exercise; then.."

"Excuse me, sir,"
 interrupted the facetious stranger in the corner,
 "But what were you in prison for?"

Odds and Ends

The teacher asked her pupils,
 "What is the significance of the 4th of July?"
       After a few moments of hushed silence,
 Little Johnny raised his hand. 
 "Yes, Johnny," said Mrs. Hancock.
  "Please tell the class what the 4th of July is."
       "Sure, Mrs. H," declared the boy, independently. 
 "The fourth of July, 1776 -
- that's when we declared our freedom from unfair British taxation,
 so that we could start our own system of unfair taxation in 1777!"

A man is sitting on his front stoop staring morosely
 at the ground when his neighbour strolls over. 
The neighbour tries to start a conversation several times,
 but the older man barely responds. 
Finally, the neighbour asks what the problem is.
"Well," the man says,
 "I ran afoul of one of those questions women ask.
 Now I'm in the doghouse."
"What kind of question?"
 the neighbour asks.
"My wife asked me if I would still love her
 when she was old, fat and ugly."

"That's easy," says the neighbor. 
"You just say, 'Of course I will.'"
 "Yeah," says the other man,
 "that's what I meant to say.
 But what came out was,
 'Of course I do.'"

A father and son went fishing one day.
 After a couple hours out in the boat, 
the boy suddenly became curious about the world around him.
 He asked his father,
 "How does this boat float?"

The father thought for a moment, then replied,
 "I don't rightly know, son."

The boy returned to his contemplation,
 then turned back to his father,
 "How do fish breath underwater?"

Once again the father replied,
 "Don't rightly know, son."

A little later the boy asked,
 "Why is the sky blue?"

Again, the father replied.
 "Don't rightly know, son."

Worried he was going to annoy his father,
 he says,
 "Dad, do you mind my asking you all of these questions?"

"Of course not, son. If you don't ask questions,
 you'll never learn anything!"

How to Talk Australians - Episode 2
warning.....  some crude language

You know you have matured as a nation
 when you are being parodied by a country
 that has 1/6th the World's population

This episode is notable for it's excellent lamington recipe
, which is much more traditional, & greatly superior
 to the vegetarian version that's generally served to wimpy foreigners:
