A Great Washing hint and a few funnies !

Hi There,

This video gives information about clothes which had inadvertantly been tumble dried and therefore had shrunk - It really works...

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


This is straight from Scotland.  Students in an advanced Biology class were taking their mid-term exam.  The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk'.  The question was worth 70 points or none at all.  One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages.  However, he wrote:

1) It is perfect formula for the child.
2) It provides immunity against several diseases.
3) It is always the right temperature.
4) It is inexpensive.
5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa.
6) It is always available as needed.
And then the student was stuck.
Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he wrote:
7) It comes in two attractive containers and it's high enough off the ground where the cat can't get it.

" He got an A."    I'm not surprised !  Wonder what he's doing now?

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ 

All of the ten senior members of the Board of Directors of the company 
were called into the chairman's office one by one until only Bob, the 
junior member, was left sitting outside. Finally it was his turn to be 
summoned. He entered the office to find the chairman and the ten other 
directors seated around a table. He was invited to join them, which he 

As soon as he had sat down the chairman turned to Bob looking him squarely in the eye,and with a stern voice, asked, “Have you ever had sex with Mrs. Foyle, my secretary?” “Oh, no sir, positively not!” Bob replied. “Are you absolutely sure?”asked the chairman. “Honest, I’ve never been close enough to even touch her!” “You’d swear to that?” “Yes, I swear I’ve never  had sex with Mrs. Foyle anytime, anywhere.”  “Good, then you fire her!”

A Wish and a Prayer ...

Maybe it is pointless to wish for lasting peace
For all mankind to lay down arms for all fighting to cease
I could despair of seeing Peace throughout the land
No longer hearing talk of war blood mixed with desert sand
We do not have the tolerance for cultures not our own
Seeds fly on an ill wind for beds where they are sown.
Hope lies in a child's heart not yet turned to stone
A mind free of prejudice a child not alone
If all children of the world held each other's hand
They could do what we could not - Make a brotherhood of Man.

By Maxine Kendall, Burlington Ontario, Canada.
[Maxine Kendall was born in the U.K.]

This is a tribute to all who took part - For those who came home and those who didn't ...

Peace and Love,  Kate xxx.

A story about an Ape??

Hi There,

A weird story concerning a member of the ape family...

Today a New York court will decide whether or not Tommy the Chimpanzee qualifies as a legal person. Tommy, a chimpanzee in his 20s, became well-known late last year when lawyer Steven Wise discovered him being held in a small, unclean cage and receiving inadequate care.
It is important to note that even if Tommy is declared a legal person, it does not mean he is human with human rights. Legally speaking, it would just afford him protection beyond existing animal cruelty laws. Personhood would give him rights pertaining to his self interest that would hold up in a court of law, similar to a parent or guardian acting on behalf of a child or disabled adult. Last year, India made headlines when they granted dolphins the status of nonhuman persons.
The Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), for which Wise works, acts on behalf of nonhuman animals who are intelligent, self-aware and autonomous, including great apes, elephants, and dolphins. They seek to allow these animals to sue their owners and become released from captivity, transferring them to sanctuaries for the rest of their lives. They primarily target animals being held for laboratory research, though some, like Tommy, come from private owners.
Late last year, NhRP filed a writ of habeas corpus on Tommy’s behalf with the New York Supreme Court, on the grounds that he had been unlawfully imprisoned without having been placed under arrest or brought before a court. The Supreme Court rejected Tommy’s case, though NhRP did not give up.
Today, five judges of the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, Third Department, in Albany will listen to Wise’s argument and decide if Tommy is a legal person. Wise will describe scientific evidence describing the intelligence of chimpanzees, and though he is not human, he is still aware enough to have certain rights.
The defendant, Patrick Lavery, attempted to move Tommy out of New York over the summer, which would have prevented NhRP from pursuing the appeal. The Appellate court prevented this move, which NhRP feels is encouraging for their chances today. The injunction was granted on the grounds that the plaintiff has a chance of success, irrevocable harm could come to Tommy if he moved, and that the interest of fairness favors NhRP. 
Wise and Lavery have not had any contact since the NhRP filed the 65-page-long brief, and the defendant is not expected to be present in the courtroom today. Tommy’s condition is currently unknown, though he is assumed to be alive. 
If today’s attempt is unsuccessful, the NhRP intends to take the case to the NY Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state.

Cardinal Birds and a little boy who remembers...

Hi There,  

Please click on the above image to enlarge photo...

A photograph of Cardinal birds in the snow...

A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, they'll appear.

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

An amazing story of a little boy who remembers his life in detail before he was born .... in his present life . 

Hmmmmm.....  I wonder ??

A ' BIG MISTAKE ' and a cute and clever animal.

Well folks, 

I've done it this time well and truly !   While I was trying to take out and alter the name of one of my blogger chums site names off my blog I have erased all of my friends details from this site.  

I have tried to reverse the system and catch them all before they disappeared but was too late,  I'd pressed the flippen button and now all my friends blog names and details have gone to blazes .... aarrrggghhh !    

I haven't got a clue now how to get them all back !   In my previous PC I could have gone back in time and would have been able to retrieve the details but not in this PC ...  Oh  I'm soooo pissed off ! What a stupid asynine ??  (spelling ?)   thing to do !  


Oh  Hell .....   Has anybody got any ideas ???  

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ 

Changing the subject completely .........   
Have a look at this video which shows that what is normally called a  dumb animal is not quite so dumb or daft as I feel at this moment .  

Cheers, Kate xxx.
