Some fun, some sense from the frog and an arrest at Heathrow Airport .


Hi There,

Yeah I know this first one is an oldie - but it is funny !!




~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

This little video was last posted on my blog a few years ago and I recently  rediscovered it ...... It gave me some impetus to get going and hope it does the same for you !



~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

Talk about play on words ....  ENJOY !

Teacher Arrested At London Heathrow Airport - held in isolation.
A secondary school teacher was arrested today at London's Heathrow International airport as he attempted to board an international flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a pair of compasses, a slide-rule and a calculator.
At a press conference, a UK Border Control spokesman said he believes the man is a member of the notorious extremist Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the Police with carrying weapons of maths instruction.
'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Spokesman said. 'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code names like "X" and "Y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns;" but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are three sides to every triangle.
When asked to comment on the arrest, Opposition Leader Ed Milliband said,"If God had wanted us to have better weapons of maths instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes." Fellow Labour colleagues told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the Opposition Leader.


Cheers, Kate xxx.

Something to make you think !




Hi There,

Yesterday morning I received one of these stories from Walk the Talk.com which can just give your heart a wee tweak and leave you with something to think about.....    Every now and then a wee gem of a story arrives from them and makes me stop and think ... This is one of these ......  Enjoy ! 
Love and Be Loved
A story by Mac Anderson
I recently had dinner with someone who told me that one of his best friends had been killed in a private plane crash. Something happened at the service that he’ll never forget:

At the memorial service, his friend’s wife walked to the podium to speak to the gathering. She said a friend had asked her the best memory she had of their life together. At the moment, she had been too grief-stricken to answer, but she thought about it since and wanted to answer the question.

They were in their late forties when he died, and she began talking about a time in their lives almost twenty years earlier. She had quit her job to obtain her master’s degree, and her husband never wavered in his support.

He held down his own job and also did the cooking, cleaning, and other household chores while she studied for her degree.

One time, they both stayed up all night. She was finishing her thesis and he was preparing for an important business meeting. That morning, she walked out on their loft, looked at him over the railing, and just thought about how much she loved him. She knew how important this meeting was to his career, and she was feeling guilty that she didn’t even have time to make his breakfast. He grabbed his briefcase and hurried out. She heard the garage door open and close, but much to her surprise, she heard it open again about thirty seconds later. From above, she watched her husband dash into the house and walk over to the neglected coffee table. Tracing his finger through the dust, he wrote the words “I love you.” Then he raced back to his car.

The new widow then looked out at her audience and said, “John and I had a wonderful life together. We have been around the world several times; we’ve had everything money can buy…but nothing comes close to that moment.”

Our lives move with lightning speed. It feels like yesterday that I graduated from college…and now forty years have passed. Although I’m very proud of my business accomplishments, in the end, my life comes back to loving and being loved.



Now, that's what I call a great story with a real message !

Another wee gem ...

A Funny that will make you laugh out loud !




Hi There,



A man and his wife had been married for going on fifty years. They shared everything, but the one thing the old man's wife asked him never to do was look in an old shoebox she kept on the top shelf of her closet.

Not thinking anything of it, the man never asked about its contents. He figured it was one of those things... One day when the old woman had fallen ill and didn't have much longer to live, she called her husband to her hospital bed and told him it was time for him to take a look at the shoebox.

The old man went home, grabbed the box and opened it.  Inside there were two crocheted dolls and bundles of money totalling $95,000.

"But... why? how?" he stuttered totally mystified by the cash.  "Right before we got married the old woman told her astonished husband my grandmother told me the secret to a happy marriage was to never argue. She said if I ever got angry with you, I should keep quiet and crochet a doll...

The old man was touched... There were only two dolls in the shoebox - she had only been angry with him two times over the course of their marriage... He scooped his wife up and gave her a kiss... But where did the money come from?"  He asked her.

"Oh that?" she said with a smile, "that's the money I made from selling the dolls."

Love and Best Wishes to everyone,  Kate xxx.
