Hello Everyone. It is nice to be back, as I had computer problems last night and could not connect to the Internet to either post or read. After checking all connections several times, I went to bed.

It has been a great day in Australia today with 2 mine workersrescued after 2 weeks, one kilometre down below the surface.
Unfortunately one miner died in the rock fall a fortnight ago, and for five days these two were presumed dead. Since the fifth day they have
had food and water and were finally rescued early this morning.
The funeral of the miner who died was postponed, waiting for these
two, but was to go ahead today whether they were rescued or not.
So after check –ups at hospital, one was able to attend.The other rested.
This goldmine in Tasmania is in a small town there, where the entire
population are very close and very supporting of each other.
A Brewery has even provided
free beer for the occasion.
There are often worse disasters I know, but this was a good story of
bravery of the rescuers, and the young men themselves. I am so glad that they are back with their families.

A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem.

$150 ? "
The man replied, "Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance.”
A story about a boss who liked putting up motivational signs
about the work place.
Above the hand basin in the toilets, this bloke put up a big sign reading “THINK”
A couple of days later, the boss was washing his hands, and there on the wall, right above the soap-dispenser, was another sign, same size,
same printing reading “THOAP.”
A reporter writing a feature story about prison life was interviewing one of the prisoners.
“Do you watch much television here?” he asked the crim.
“Only the daytime shows,” the prisoner said.
“At night, we are locked in our cells, and don’t see any television.”
“That’s too bad,” the reporter said, “ But I do think it’s nice that the governor let’s you watch TV during the daytime.”
“What do you mean, nice?” growled the inmate, it’s part of
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the
world walks out.
Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and be my friend.
You might regret what you do – but you’ll regret what
you don’t do, SO much more.
