A friend’s status on Sing Snap Karoake

Sometimes you have to forget what’s gone,
appreciate what still remains and look forward
to what’s coming next!

Posted on my Facebook page :

I may not be beautiful, but I am me.

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

I’m thinking about you and I’ll always care, so on my wall this post I’ll share.

If you ever need me and feel all alone, I will come to you and never moan.

I’m here for you until the end, I’m not your family, I’m your very best friend.

A comment from the lady I sang a duet with -The Way I Want To Touch You – on Sing Snap.  Oh yes, we were singing about a man 🙂

Extracted from a list of jokes in my mail today.

At my age rolling out of bed is easy….  Getting up off the floor is another story !

Now, I have blue eyes so I just had to share this with you from my Facebook page this morning.

People with blue eyes are kind hearted and always look for the best in others.  They will love with all their heart and are the kind of people who are hard to forget.  They are the best at pretending to be happy during hard times and will tend to please others before themselves.

That’s me !  😉

27th October 2013

At last, something appeared on my Facebook page.  Must be something to do with the clocks being changed today.  Nobody got up this morning.

I’d like mornings better, if they happened in the afternoons.

I’m a Pisces, I thought I would look on-line to find out what sort of person I should be.

Pisces is a feminine sign and tends to have quite tolerant, compassionate, sympathetic and agreeable characteristics. They are perhaps the most selfless and sensitive of all the zodiac signs. In relationships, both male and female are very loving, generous and kind. This woman or man always has time for those in need. However, their feelings run so deep they are often overwhelmed by them as the characteristic Piscean energy scatters itself beyond its limits. Their personality simply cannot abide suffering and will offer charity wherever their sensitivity directs this trait.

Ok….. well I’d like to think that is me, but I’m not so sure  🙂

It appears I should be looking for a man who is a Virgo.

So… Is there a Male Virgo out there who’s looking for a Lady Pisces ? 

I’m Free !!

St Jude‘s Storm Forecast for Today over Great Britain. This is the advice given: (tongue in cheek)  This came off my Facebook page.


I woke this morning at about 06:30 with rain lashing at the window and pots blowing about in my garden.  I looked out of the back window to see my neighbour’s tall Eucalyptus tree bent almost double, I expected to hear it crack, the wind was blowing away from my house.  Fortunately, on this occasion, the storm missed me.  There was no thunder or lightening here so my precautions of unplugging everything and having a torch by the bed came to nothing.  It’s 11:35 now and the worst seems to have past.  Just the clearing up to do.  Lucky this time!

3rd November 2013

In my joke mail this morning.  Unfortunately this is too true.

My Grandaughter asked me what it was like to be old, so I told her:

“Put cotton in your ears and pebbles in your shoes.  Pull on rubber gloves, smear Vaseline over your glasses and there you have it:  Instant Old Age”

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

In my horoscope reading today:

“Reality is just a shared illusion,”

This is true.

(And so to the ironing… this is reality, not an illusion shared or otherwise, nobody ever shares the ironing) 😉

6th November 2013

You lovers of the English language might enjoy this . It’s taken from an e-mail I received today.
There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is ‘UP.’

It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP ? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP. When it doesn’t rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so…….it is time to shut UP! Now it’s UP to you what you do with this email.  

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

Addendum to the above:  I have just been reminded that there is one ‘Up’ missing from this list: ( cover your eyes if you are at all sensitive)

Up Yours !

(How rude)

In my e-mail :

The most beautiful line is:      “But, I Love you”

The most painful line is:          “I love you, but”

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

TYPEWRITER  is the longest word
that can be made
using the letters only on one row of the keyboard. 

(All you typists are going to test this out) 

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

A ‘jiffy’ is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

~~~   ~~~   ~~~

From my e-mail this afternoon: I think it’s from a friend but I don’t remember his name :-

Forgetter be Forgotten


My forgetter’s getting better,

But my rememberer is broke

To you that may seem funny

But, to me, that is no joke

Or when I’m ‘here’ I’m wondering

If I really should be ‘there’

And, when I try to think it through,

I haven’t got a prayer!

Oft times I walk into a room,

Say ‘what am I here for?’

I wrack my brain, but all in vain!

A zero, is my score.

At times I put something away

Where it is safe, but, Gee!

The person it is safest from

Is, generally, me!

When shopping I may see someone,

Say ‘Hi’ and have a chat,

Then, when the person walks away

I ask myself, ‘who the hell was that?

Yes, my forgetter’s getting better

While my rememberer is broke,

And it’s driving me plumb crazy

And that isn’t any joke.

It’s always the oldies that make me smile.

I'm not old

9th November 2013

In my e-mail today, some Maxine jokes, this one I liked best.

Now, I don’t know if Father Christmas can help with this one, but let me know if you ask and have any luck, I’ll ask next year.

Dear Santa

I would like a new birthday suit this year, my current one is old wrinkled and sagging.

From my e-mail this morning 😉

How true !

Life is not the way it’s supposed to be
It’s the way it is.
The way we cope with it
Is what makes the difference!!

This is the Prompt For Today

Thought I would have a go at answering these questions:



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

  • What is your favorite word?
  • Now?  No explanation is being offered 🙂
  • What is your least favourite word?
  • Absolutely.  Every television or radio interviewer should be told to tell people not to use that word when being interviewed.  If they then insist on using it or cannot possibly think of an alternative then the interview should be broadcast with the word bleeped out as if it were an expletive and the exact number of bleeps used shown in large numerals at the end of the interview.  I absolutely hate that word being incorrectly applied.
  • What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
  • Good music played or sung by good musicians.  Music can make me smile, cry, happy, sad, sombre, uplifted and light hearted.  If there were no music or musicians on this earth, it would be a very sad and sorry world to live in.
  • What turns you off?
  • I am assuming this question refers to that little three letter word, which should rightly have been included in the question if it does.    A very brief answer to this question:     Not a lot !
  • What is your favorite curse word?
  • Shit !  It’s not nice stuff to step in, slip on, smell if it’s someone else’s or have to pick up after your dog.  Yes.  SHIT ! said vehemently.
  • What sound or noise do you love?
  • I love to hear the birds singing in the early morning, they announce a new day with abandon.
  • What sound or noise do you hate?
  • The dentist’s drill on my teeth. I can’t even bear to think about it.
  • What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
  • I once sat with and listened to an ex-Wing Commander ( pilot )talking about his experiences flying a fighter jet plane above and through the clouds on a clear early summer’s morning, on his own and without another plane in the sky.  I think I would like to be a pilot and be able to experience those deep, spiritual feelings he so ably described.
  • What profession would you not like to do?
  • I don’t think I would like to work in any capacity in the medical profession.  I cannot stand to see people who are critically ill, terminal, even if due to a long life, or the families of sick people suffering the stress of losing a loved one.  No. I could not cope with such intense feelings of helplessness and sorrow.
  • If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
  • ‘All drinks are on the house, and here’s the key to your car, just don’t park on my cloud. You’re Welcome’

Seen in my e-mail today:

white christmas

Cheers !

Have you ever wondered:

I saw this today when I went to Just Ask :

Does an Ant Fart ?

Answer given:

It is not possible to establish whether ants fat. Such a study would require specialized equipment. No scientific investigation has been done to prove otherwise.

Now we will all be wondering whether they do or not.  When you consider the number of ants on this planet, let’s hope that they don’t.  The Earth would probably explode if they all farted at the same time !

Just consider also the methane that cows put into the atmosphere when they fart !

The end of the world is nigh !  Or is it ?
