    The Summary of Life

    1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats.
    2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
    3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person.
    4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
    5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
    6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
    7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
    8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
    9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
    10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.


    1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
    2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
    3) Families are like fudge..mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
    4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
    5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
    6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.


    1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
    2) Forget the health food, I need all the preservatives I can get.
    3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
    4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you
    Once got from a roller coaster.
    5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
    6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
    7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.


    1) You believe in Santa Claus.
    2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
    3) You are Santa Claus.
    4) You look like Santa Claus.


    At age 4 success is . . . Not piddling in your pants.
    At age 12 success is . . . Having friends.
    At age 17 success is . . Having a drivers license.
    At age 35 success is . . Having money.
    At age 50 success is . . . Having money.
    At age 70 success is . .. . Having a drivers license.
    At age 75 success is . . . Having friends.
    At age 80 success is . . . Not piddling in your pants.

  12. Pack of Dogs Attacking a Crocodile in the Kruger Park

    At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

    The crocodile, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the "apex predator," can still fall victim to implemented "team work" strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and "survival-of-the-pack mentality" bred into the canines.

    See the remarkable photograph below, courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the croc preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the croc.

    I have put the picture as a link rather than embedded it as its not for the faint of heart...

    1. Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth. This is an irrefutable scientific fact*.
    *(Based on a survey of over 100,000 men.)

    2. Man-Flu is not 'just a cold'. It is a condition so severe that the germs from a single Man-Flu sneeze could wipe out entire tribes of people living in the rainforest. And probably loads of monkeys too.

    3. Women do not contract Man-Flu. At worst they suffer from what is medically recognised as a 'Mild Girly Sniffle', which, if a man caught, he would still be able to run, throw a ball, tear the phone book in half and compete in all other kinds of manly activities.

    4. Men do not 'moan' when they have Man-Flu. They emit involuntary groans of agony that are entirely in proportion to the unbearable pain they are in.

    5. Full recovery from Man-Flu will take place much quicker if their simple requests for care, sympathy and regular cups of tea are met. Is that really so much to ask? Florence Nightingale would have done it

    6. More men die each year from MFN (Man-Flu Neglect) than lots and lots of other things. (Like rabbit attacks or choking on toast).

    7. Men suffering from Man-Flu want nothing more than to get out of bed and come to work, but they are too selfless to risk spreading this awful condition amongst their friends and colleagues. In this sense, they are the greatest heroes this country has ever known.

    8. In 1982 scientists managed to simulate the agonising symptoms of full blown Man-Flu in a female chimp. She became so ill that her head literally fell off.

    9. Man-Flu germs are more powerful than He-Man, The Thundercats and The A-Team combined. They are too strong for weak, nasty tasting 'lady medicines' like Lemsip, so don't bother trying to force them on a victim of Man-Flu.

    10. While it may seem like a Man-Flu sufferer is just lying around enjoying 'Diagnosis Murder' it is a commonly recognised medical fact that the exact pitch and frequency of Dick Van Dyke's voice has remarkable soothing powers.

    Every minute in this country one man is struck down by Man-Flu. Women, all we ask is that each of you offers them a cup of tea, some kind words and your undivided attention and care. Then maybe, just maybe, we'll beat this monstrous disease together.

    For your male attention: All (yes I mean ALL) women have a ready supply of FLU strength remedies available for MAN FLU symptoms. Personally I advise to dose the patient (beloved) well with MAX strength & usher them to bed.

    Men please note: To assist & aid in love & recovery. :empathy:

    Women please note: If the whining darlings are upstairs in bed you can't hear the groaning.


    Girls, enjoy the peace & wish they could give birth. ;)

    MPs expenses!


    Personally, I think those involved should answer criminal charges of theft/fraud. :craig:

    When I worked for the National Health Service I submitted a travel/petrol claim each month. If the claim was found to be inaccurate I would have been subject to 1) disciplinary action by the Trust. 2) criminal prosecution on the Trusts behalf & 3) potentially I could have been struck off by the HPC for such activities.

    In private practice if there is a discrepancy in my tax returns the weight of the tax investigation team would land firmly upon my shoulders & demand up to 7 years (I believe) accounts for scrutiny.

    IMO (think you can tell I'm bloody angry) thieves don't always carry swag bags & wear a mask. Some wear Saville Row suits & are educated privately. :mad:

    The hair cut

    One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he
    asked about his bill and the barber replies, ' I cannot accept money
    from you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The florist was
    pleased and left the shop.

    When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a
    ' thank you ' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door..

    Later, a policeman comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his
    bill, the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept money from you. I'm
    doing community service this week. ' The policeman is happy and leaves the

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ' thank
    you ' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

    Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when
    he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept
    money from you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The professor
    is very happy and leaves the shop..

    The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a ' thank
    you ' card and a dozen different books, such as ' How to Improve
    Your Business ' and ' Becoming More Successful. '

    Then, a Member of Parliament comes in for a haircut , and when he goes
    to pay his bill the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept money from
    you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The Member of Parliament
    is very happy and leaves the shop.

    The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen
    Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
    the citizens of our country and the Members of Parliament

    Read in The Mail yesterday about the Essex shopkeeper who put the following sign in his window


    Seems they are even giving schoolkids a good name!

  24. In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

    Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and Magnums.

    And Satan said "You want hot fudge with that? And Man said "Yes!"

    And Woman said "I'll have one too with chocolate chips". And lo they gained 10 pounds.

    And God created the healthy yoghurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair.

    And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane and combined them.

    And Woman went from size 12 to size 14. So God said "Try my fresh green salad".

    And Satan presented Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side.

    And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

    God then said "I have sent you healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them".

    And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks and chicken fried steak, so big it needed its own platter.

    And Man's cholesterol went through the roof.

    Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition.

    Then Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt.

    And Man put on more pounds.

    God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds.

    And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels.

    And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.

    Then God gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

    And Satan created McDonalds and the 99p double cheeseburger. Then Satan said "You want fries with that?" and Man replied "Yes, And super size 'em".

    And Satan said "It is good."

    And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

    God sighed ......... and created quadruple by-pass surgery.

    And then ............ Satan chuckled and created the National Health Service.

    After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health.:
    1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

    2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

    3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

    4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

    5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

    CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    Not wishing anyone to believe I agree with the following. Just sharing. :rolleyes:



    · If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.

    · If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.


    · When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.

    · When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


    · A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

    · A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.


    · A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.

    · The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.


    · A woman has the last word in any argument.

    · Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


    · A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

    · A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife..


    · A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

    · A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


    · A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

    · A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.


    · A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.

    · A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


    · Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

    · Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


    · Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

    · A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


    A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

    "Life isn't like a box of Chocolates. Its more like a jar of jalapeno's, what you get today could burn your ass tomorrow."

    "If everything in life is going your way, you really need to start to worry because you are in the wrong damned lane!"

    Just got this email today and it tickled me.

    What to do when you are bored at work ...

    1. Kill a few Flies

    2. Put them in the sun to dry for one hour.

    3. Once they are dry, pick a pencil and paper... Let your imagination flow.

    Here are a few examples...

  35. I had a rather touching email recently from a friend who drinks quite a lot, so much so that his wife finally ran out of patience and told him if he came home drunk again she was going to leave him. So he went out and drank quite a lot and threw up over himself and he told his friend who he was drinking with that he was finished if he went home. His friend told him to put twenty pounds in his inside jacket pocket and to tell his wife that someone had been sick all over him and gave him the money to pay for the dry cleaning bill.

    He went home and his wife took one look at him and started to pack her bags and he said "No, no, no wait, this man threw up over me and he gave me this twenty pound note to pay for the dry cleaning" and she replied "Why are you holding two twenty pound notes?" and quick as anything he said, "Oh, yes the other one is from the man who shat in my pants..."

    Girls getaway weekend

    Four friends spend weeks planning the perfect girls getaway trip - shopping, casinos, massages, facials etc.

    Two days before they are leaving, Mary's husband puts his foot down and tells her she isn't going.

    Mary's friends are very upset that she can't go, but what can they do.

    Two days later the three get to the hotel only to find Mary sitting in the bar drinking a glass of wine.

    "Wow, how long have you been here and how did you talk your husband into letting you come?"

    "Well, I've been here since last night.......yesterday evening I was sitting on the couch and my husband came up behind me and put his hands over my eyes and said 'Guess who?"

    I pulled his hands off to find all he was wearing was his birthday suit! He took my hand and lead me into the bedroom. The room was scented with perfume, had two dozen candles burning and rose petals scattered..........on the bed he had handcuffs and ropes. He told me tie and cuff him to the bed, so I did. And then he said, "Now you can do whatever you want"

    So here I am. :D

    Just proves girls think differently to boys ;)

    This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. So remember this story the next time someone who knows nothing and cares less tries to make your life miserable.

    A woman was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband.. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:

    " Rome ? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty.. You're crazy to go to Rome . So, how are you getting there?"

    "We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

    "Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser... " That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome ?"

    "We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome'sTiber River called Teste."

    "Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump.."

    "We're going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope."

    "That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant.

    Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."

    A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.

    "It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot.

    And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"

    "Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."

    "Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.

    Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."

    "Oh, really! What'd he say ?"

    He said: "Who the f**k did your hair?
