Hi Folks ~~ I hope all goes well with you . And I hope that all the
Dads had a very Happy Father’s Day, and enjoyed some special
attention Like presents and goodies to eat and drink. I am still
working on my phones, but at least they work, which is the main
thing. Like most Aussies, I will be up half the night watching our
Socceroos play the champions, Brazil. One can only hope !!
<><><> Some more of the same Reflections. <><><>
Almost all of our unhappiness is the result of comparing
ourselves to others.
We can’t do much about our appearance, but we have
total control over the kind of person we become.
To change everything, simply change your attitude.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
Carrying a grudge is like a run in a stocking, it can only get worse.
Forgiveness is the answer.
When you remember how hard it is to change yourself, you begin
to understand what little chance we have of changing others.
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers, why not
gather your own boquet.
A friend is a person who knows all about you but likes you anyway.
Friends are like a beautiful garden. They require regular care.
The people on our planet are not standing in a line single file. Look
closely. Everyone is really standing in a circle, holding hands,
Wherever you give to the person standing next to you, it
eventually comes back to you.
<><><> A Plaque for Guests. <><><>
You are welcome here, be at your ease,
Get up when you’re ready and go to bed when you please.
We’re happy to share with you such as we’ve got
the leaks in the roof and the soup in the pot.
You don’t have to thank us or laugh at our jokes,
Sit deep and come often, you’re one of the folks !
<><><> LIFE BEFORE COMPUTERS <><><>
An application was for employment
A program was a T V show
A cursor used profanity
And a keyboard was on a piano!
Memory was something you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out !
Compress was what you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You’d be in jail for a while.
Log on was adding wood to a fire
A hard drive was a trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a back-up happened to the commode.
Cutting, you did with a pocket knfe,
Pasting, you did with glue
Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!
<><><> And Some Jokes Folks. <><><>
A University student at a football match challenged
a senior citizen sitting next to him, saying it was impossible
for their generation to understand his.
“You grew up in a different world,” the student said loud
enough for the whole crowd to hear. Today we have
television, jet planes, space travel, man has walked on
the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars., we even
have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars,
computers with light- speed processing…. and uh….
Taking advantage of a pause in the student’s litany,
the old geezer said, “You’re right, we didn’t have those
things when we were young, so we invented them, you
little twit, what the hell are you doing for the next
