Thu-5-Sep-2013 - THE VENTRILOQUIST AND THE BLONDE...

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

A young ventriloquist is touring Norway and puts on a show in a small fishing town.

With his dummy on his knee, he starts going through his usual dumb blonde jokes.

Suddenly, a blonde woman in the fourth row...
Stands on her chair and starts shouting,
"I've heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes.
What makes you think you can stereotype Norwegian blonde women that way?
What does the colour of a woman's hair have to do...
With her worth as a human being.

It's men like you who keep women like me from...
Being respected at work and in the community...
And from reaching our full potential as people.
Its people like you that make others think that all blondes are dumb!
You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes,
but women in general, pathetically all in the name of humour!"

The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, and the blonde yells:
"You stay out of this!...
I'm talking to that little person on your lap."
LOL! HEE HEE!

Sun-1-Sep-2013 - THE DISAPPEARING BEE'S

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

The disappearance of the magnificent honey bee is a worrying phenomenon and humans should be very worried. We humans one and all in every corner of this big world have to begin to be less selfish today and take care of all living things including ourselves or we will be extinct sooner than we care to think about. We can't keep sticking our heads in the sand and thinking it will right its self and leaving all the detrimental damage to fall on our children's children. We can't keep wiping animal and insect species out and thinking oh! Well that's just too bad and go on as if we had a perfect right to do so. No we have no rights to kill other living things animals are feeling, sentient beings who love their families and care just as much. Our farm animals deserve more respect and care from the people making money from them. This is my opinion. Please if you do nothing else, try to have a bee friendly garden with no pesticides and instead grow companion plants that do the job just as well. And don't be afraid to have a fruit that is not bred for it's looks and longevity on fruit shop shelf. You will be surprised at the difference in taste. In the meantime look out for the humble honey bee and do all you can to encourage them to live on.

“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.”
~Albert Einstein~

Fri-23-Aug-2013 - "A Little Yarn About A Doctor"

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

Resident Doctor Retiring…

New One Arrives!

A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring.

The older doctor suggested that the young one accompany him on his rounds, so the community could become used to a new doctor.

At the first house a woman complains, "I've been a little sick to my stomach."

The older doctor says, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?"

As they left, the younger man said, "You didn't even examine that woman? How'd you come to the diagnosis so quickly?"

"I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor. When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash. That was what probably was making her sick."

The younger doctor said "Pretty clever. If you don't mind, I think I'll try that at the next house."

Arriving at the next house, they spent several minutes talking with a younger woman. She said that she just didn't have the energy she once did and said, "I'm feeling terribly run down lately."

"You've probably been doing too much for the Church," the younger doctor told her "Perhaps you should cut back a bit and see if that helps."

As they left, the elder doctor said, "I know that woman well. Your diagnosis is almost certainly correct, she's very active in the church, but how did you arrive at it?"

"I did what you did at the last house. I dropped my stethoscope and, when I bent down to retrieve it, I noticed the vicar under the bed.

Tue-20-Aug-2013 - A BEAUTIFUL TIME CAPSULE OF MISSING HISTORY

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

New York City’s Hidden Subway Station

Written by 24 February 2012  
Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station… But it sounds like something straight out of Harry Potter, right?
It was opened in 1904, with the hope of making it the crowning glory of the New York subway system in elegant architecture and a place for commemorative plaques to honour the work that had resulted in such a successful underground mass transit system. It was to be the original southern terminus of the first ‘Manhattan Main Line’; however the station was closed and boarded up in 1945. The gem of the underground began gathering dust, forgotten by the general public, as passengers were forced off at the Brooklyn Bridge Stop before the train continued on to the terminus to make its turnaround.
This architecture is amazing and to think it is hidden under ground where not many know it is there
or get a chance to see it.
Magnificent glass work so pretty.
The reason for its closure was that newer longer cars were required to match the demand of passengers that passed through the system. But as the stations tracks were severely curved, a dangerous gap between the train doors and the platform was formed making it an unsafe area. This combined with the fact that only about 600 people used it, resulted in its closure with only mythical plans of turning it into a transit museum. But this was never followed through.
However, now you don’t have to take my word that the secret City Hall Station exists, as the 6 Train will now allow the passengers who have been enlightened with the knowledge of its whereabouts to stay on the train during its turnaround and see the Station. You won’t be able to get off, but you’ll be taken for a slow tour of the platform and see what a beauty it was in its heyday!
And if that isn’t enough, The Underbelly Project has turned it into a kind-of off-limits art gallery. They are a group of street artists who have painted the walls of the unattractive concrete areas with their art in a spooky art exhibition that will be witnessed only by urban explorers who prowl the deep train system at night and Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers.
Graffiti in the old tunnels.
Sort of hauntingly beautiful.
I bet it's dark in there in the dead of night.
Over a hundred murals have been accumulated over time by graffiti artists, namely PAC and Workhorse (infamous NYC graffitists), who discovered the bare walls and invited others to add their art.
But if you want to go and view these art works, you will most definitely run the high risk of being arrested as venturing the tunnels is both highly illegal and dangerous! I’ll just stick to seeing the photographs as I’m pretty sure my search for art would turn into a horror story down in the black tunnels… or I’d get hit by a train.

Mon-19-Aug-2013 - THE MIND AND THE CLOCK

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

THE MIND AND THE CLOCK HAVE THINGS IN COMMON

 

THE MIND IS LIKE...

A CLOCK.

THAT IS CONSTANTLY RUN DOWN

AND

IT HAS TO BE WOUND UP DAILY

WITH GOOD LOVING THOUGHTS. 

 

I love this little quote and have had it pinned to my fridge for ages.

Then today when I was thinking about what I would write...

I thought, that will do nicely because it is, after all very true...

We need to take care of our minds and not let them get run down with...

Hate, jealousy, indifference, religious bigotry, or racism

We are all on this planet MOTHER EARTH Together

And therefore we should be pulling together...

As one big unit, for the common good of humanity.

We have to start with the political leaders...

And let them know, that what they are delivering to us all...

 In countries all throughout this lovely planet is just not good enough.

I'm sick of leaders of all persuasions...

 Taking the horrendous option of war...

To solve everything and nothing, except the horrible killing of innocents.

It's too easy to take out a gun, knife, bomb and start to kill that’s…

The, whole dash problem.

It takes a little more intelligence to work out how to compromise…

And get the job done to everyone's mutual

Satisfaction without drawing a drop of blood.

But I fear that power and testosterone definitely relieves men of their senses.

So what we need are a few good women to step up to the plate

And show the way to peace and love.

I'm not saying women are all peaceful loving creatures that are not capable of war because the fact 

Remains, that some can be very brutal...

But they cannot be any worse than the centuries of war mongering men.

So for the NEXT, generation sake.

We best open our eyes and reach out to each other regardless of race, creed, or any other differences especially religion because no matter what religion you adhere to

they all are peaceful and if they are not well there's a big problem with the religion.

SO WIND YOUR MIND UP WITH GOOD LOVING THOUGHTS

And take the world into the recovery of its life giving soul.

Sat-17-Aug-2013 - A MEMORY OF MUM...

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

My Beloved Mum used to sing this to me when I was little on the way home after milking the cows and feeding the calves. Mum had a fascination with the moon and always loved looking at "Cat Diddle" The Moon. Since she passed away my heart aches so much and she is so missed. I think of her every day and tonight I just had a feeling to go out and look at the moon before going to bed.

I SEE THE MOON THE MOON SEES ME.

I see the moon the moon sees me,

Back thru the leaves of the old oak tree,

Please let the light that shines on me,

Shine on the one I love,

Over the hills, over the sea,

Back where my heart is longing to be,

Please let the light that shines on me

Shine on the one I love.

This little ditty has two other verses but Mum used to only sing this verse.

Thu-15-Aug-2013 - A GARDEN PLANTED FOR DAILY LIFE...

Posted By DAWNIE in Unspecified

Wander out into the garden while the dew is still on the roses...

Sit a wee while and then plant three rows of peas...

1. Peace of mind

2. Peace of heart

3. Peace of soul.

Then you will have a recipe for a...

Pretty mind, pretty heart and a pretty soul which will be kind and nonjudgemental.

Peace and Love to all. Travel safely on your journey down life's road.
