      Just a quick note to Mick. Uppermill sounds so darned familiar! Where is it exactly? I seem to remember a bus with that name on it. I feel like cheese and onion pie.

      Went out to a nice restaurant for lunch and visited neighbour.

      Sleep well everyone.

      tis me back again...re coded the new locos ..they look good...also finished painting the board ,been up to Oldham ,got bits and pieces job done .next door ..the kids have being football most of the day.and yep ..please can we have our ball back...

      If laziness was an Olympic sport, I would come fourth to save walking up to the Podium.

      For my holidays last year, I threw a dart at a map of the world and decided to go to wherever it landed.
      I had a fantastic two weeks sat next to the skirting board.

      I was at the local police station.
      “Hello I’d like to report a crime please”. I reported.
      “Go ahead sir”. Replied the policeman.
      “Yes these men they’ve been laughing at me.” I whispered.
      “Ok annoying but not a crime sir”. Replied the constable.
      “Well what the fck is manslaughter?” I asked.

      I have a successful dog grooming company.

      I built it up from Scratch.

      I was in the highlands in scotland at the Glencoe visitors centre.
      Some man was telling us all about the tragic massacre of the MacDonalds by the evil Campbells .

      I said "it can't have been too bad mate, they have a restaurant on every high street nowadays".

      When Charles deGaulle decided to retire from public life, the British ambassador and his wife threw a gala dinner party in his honor.

      At the dinner table the Ambassador's wife was talking with Madame deGaulle.

      "Your husband has been such a prominent public figure, such a presence on the French and International scene for so many years! How quiet retirement will seem in comparison. What are you most looking forward to in these retirement years"?

      "A penis", replied Madame deGaulle.

      A huge hush fell over the table. Everyone heard her answer... and no one knew what to say next.

      Le Grand Charles leaned over to his wife and said, "Ma Cherie, I believe ze English pronounce zat word, 'appiness'"!

      Brochure circulated by a 5-Star Chinese Hotel

      Getting There:
      Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.


      The hotel:
      This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.


      The Restaurant:
      Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.


      Your Room:
      Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.


      Bed
      Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.


      Above all:
      When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it."

      A picky lady customer at Tesco's fruit department watches as a new delivery of fresh fruit is delivered. "Give me two kilo of oranges and wrap every orange in a separate piece of paper, please", the picky lady says to the saleslady.

      Silently the sales lady serves the picky customer.

      "And three kilo of apples, please, and wrap each and every one in a separate piece of paper, too".

      Gritting her teeth, the saleslady once again obliges the picky customer.

      "And what is that over there", the picky customer says as she points to a basket in the corner.

      "Grapes", says the saleslady with a big grin on her face, "but they are not for sale"!

      My mom and dad were arguing yet again the other day but this time mum decided to get even by going shopping...

      When mom returned home she said to dad that she had just purchased ten new dresses.

      "Ten", he screamed. "TEN"???!!!!

      "Ten", is all she said, standing right up to him.

      "What could any woman want with ten new dresses"???!!!!

      My mom turned to my dad, calmly looked him right in the eye and said...

      "Ten new pairs of shoes and ten handbags".


      Murphy the Roofer was working when suddenly he started shaking and feeling dizzy.

      He calls down to Paddy the Hod-Carrier and says "I think I must go home, I've just come over all giddy and feel sick".

      Paddy shouts up to Murphy on the roof "Have you got vertigo"?

      Murphy replies, "No I only live round the corner".

      Always wear clean underwear in public, especially when working under your vehicle...

      From the Hamilton Spectator Daily News comes this story of a Burlington couple who drove their car to Wal-Mart, only to have their car break down in the parking lot.

      The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car in the lot.

      The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection, she saw a pair of male legs protruding from under the chassis. Although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned private parts into glaringly public ones. Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts, and tucked everything back into place. She then took a deep breath and stood up boldly to face the crowd. When she looked across the hood, she found herself staring at her husband, who had been standing idly by.

      The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his forehead.


      Latest Interesting Trivia




      During WWII , U.S. airplanes were armed with belts of bullets which they would shoot during dogfights and on strafing runs. These belts were folded into the wing compartments that fed their machine guns. These belts measure 27 feet and contained hundreds of rounds of bullets. Often times, the pilots would return from their missions having expended all of their bullets on various targets. They would say, ?I gave them the whole nine yards,? meaning they used up all of their ammunition.



      In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are 'limbs,' therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, 'Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg.' (Artists know hands and arms are more difficult to paint.)



      In the late 1700's, many houses consisted of a large room with only one chair. Commonly, a long wide board folded down from the wall, and was used for dining. The 'head of the household' always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor. Occasionally a guest, who was usually a man, would be invited to sit in this chair during a meal. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. They called the one sitting in the chair the 'chair man.' Today in business, we use the expression or title 'Chairman' or 'Chairman of the Board.'



      Personal hygiene left much room for improvement. As a result, many women and men had developed acne scars by adulthood. The women would spread bee's wax over their facial skin to smooth out their complexions. When they were speaking to each other, if a woman began to stare at another woman's face she was told, 'mind your own bee's wax.' Should the woman smile, the wax would crack, hence the term 'crack a smile'. In addition, when they sat too close to the fire, the wax would melt. Therefore, the expression 'losing face.'



      Ladies wore corsets, which would lace up in the front. A proper and dignified woman, as in 'straight laced' wore a tightly tied lace.



      Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what the people considered important. Since there were no telephones, TV's or radios, the politicians sent their assistants to local taverns, pubs, and bars. They were told to 'go sip some Ale and listen to people's conversations and political concerns. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. 'You go sip here' and 'You go sip there.' The two words 'go sip' were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term 'gossip.'



      At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized containers. A bar maid's job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in 'pints' and who was drinking in 'quarts,' hence the phrase 'minding your 'P's and Q's'.


      Adam Got Caught Speeding Yesterday...
      the policeman asked him to step out of the car and walk in a straight line. Half way down he stopped Adam and said, "I'm sorry sir, but you'll have to come back to the station with me as you're staggering".
      Adam replied, "Oohh, you little tiger, you're not so bad looking yourself".


      Someone knocked at my door this afternoon.
      When I opened it, I saw a guy from Domino's holding a cheese and tomato pizza.
      "I haven't ordered any pizzas," I said. "This must be a mistake."
      "I know," he replied. "Your neighbour forgot his Facebook password and wanted to show you what he was eating for lunch."

      Happy Saturday ABeroooooodles!

      Mick, thanks much as always. you're quite the engineer.

      Pauly, if it weren't for my dedicated meditation practice I'm sure I'd be in bad shape about now. Things have been a dreadfully difficult
      struggle and always up in the air and unsettled. If you could possibly join us at a Refuge Recovery that would be just fab. There's a new
      one tonight at 6pm near Sunset Park. It's only an hour but you can hang and chat as you like. I often do as i did last night.

      MAE ALL...OMG it's treacherous out there! The road just disappears in front of you! Started snowing about 6 last night and hasn't stopped. Rest assured I stocked up with goodies for the weekend.

      Lav...63! We're supposed to go up to 28 on Tuesday and that'll feel like a heatwave. Bet your daughter was glad to get the help with the remodeling since you had to cancel last time.

      SK...glad you're getting out and about. You sound pretty good these days.

      Mick..."I could have left it but no .." of course you couldn't, you sound like me. After all the crap with the accountant and the form she showed me a double line on it. She said it's ok but I know how you are. I just said well I'm not changing it now! Then it bugged me enough I had to change it. Glad the fleabay locos were a hit. The kids next door, are they the new neighbours? Please tell me you gave them their ball back. Wow, that's a load of jokes you just posted, need to get another cuppa for getting into them.

      Pauly...hope you got rid of the stuffy head and that you're having a good day at work. Just so you don't feel alone I have a sink full of dirty dishes too. LOL

      Det..TG..Sam..Pi...thinking of you all.

      Picked up some fixings for a tuna salad so off to get my lunch ready. Have a Super Sober Saturday all....PPQP

      Det...there you are. Breakfast sounded great, I like spinach in my eggs, and of course garlic. Yes, I think we all need a hit of "Det Photos" it's been too long. I think it would be great if you and Pauly met up at a Refuge Recovery meeting. I know just because you both live in Nevada doesn't mean you're next door to each other. Congrats on completing the Police check. Training on Monday, are you still with the original job or did you switch? Have a great Saturday....PPQP

      Good evening Abbers,

      No more 63 degrees, it's now 33
      I knew it wouldn't last so that's why I try to enjoy it as much as possible.
      We have decided to take a run back to daughter's house tomorrow & put in an extra electric socket in what's going to be a bedroom. Won't take long so we'll have a chance to stop at some stores near there like Trader Joes & some funky little boutique shops (we don't have anything like that here in cow country)

      Mick, thanks, I never knew the origin of 'the whole 9 yards', interesting!
      I think it's fun to have neighbors with young kids, they can teach you a lot, LOL
      Good luck tomorrow if you go detecting.

      Det, having the right amount of support is vital. We all need different things t different times. I guess the secret is knowing deep down what your needs are & then knowing where to go for help.
      You have been on a roller coaster lately but I have a feeling things are going to level out for you very soon.
      I wish I could get you some of the spinach the Amish guys grow here in their hoop houses - yum

      Pauly, if at all possible maybe think about heading out to a meeting with Det some time. It sure sounds like a good thing. I quite imagine we all have an asshole day every once in a while. Don't beat yourself up

      PQ, sorry your weather conditions are so lousy. Stay put this weekend, stay warm, stay in your PJs & enjoy!!!
      We're going back to do more wiring tomorrow because YB thinks they need more outlets. How nice of him. haha! The 'kids' don't have any real experience in gutting a room & starting over but we sure do. So we've been laying down a lot of hints!

      Cyn, I saw the Chinese New Year parade pics - you must be in NYC! I've been to those parades in Philly. Have fun.

      SK, what's your day been like?

      Hello to Sam & Pie.

      Have a nice night everyone & please ignore the BS coming out of Washington DC this week, ugh.
