Speaking overall I think that the one-footers will leave the world a much worse place then when they were teenagers and had the world at their feet. There have been great improvements in people's mental attitude, awareness etc. but they have been greatly out weighed by the dangerous spread of nuke weapons everywhere almost and the dire state of the environment and biosphere including over population. Life as we know it will only go downhill from now and we are virtually nothing to effectively prevent it. Politicians are making heroes out themselves doing the opposite. There is no hope.
Near, the end?

(first reply somehow didn't get posted due to technical problems)

All species are already on the downhill slide, many are moving to more temperate areas which in some cases cause havoc among existing species in those areas. Humans are suffering due to excessive heat (and cold in some cases), more powerful cyclones etc.. The ice caps are melting stranding polar bears.

In human time frames the slide will take many generations but humans will probably survive forever only in terrible circumstances or greatly effected circumstances. But in natural timeframe of biosphere and evolution of species it is a extremely quick change.

Classic 60's Music, I know that there has been the odd reference here and there but I recently scored off ebay 'The Best Of The Move', while familiar with the odd track, why were they not at 'WOODSTOCK'?

The whole Kinks album was filled with meaningful songs about all institutions in society.

Heard Pub With No Beer this morn on radio, one line goes...and the cook was acting queer. What did this mean in the sixties? Was he wearing a thrilly apron?

They mentioned the song went to NO 2 in UK and NO. 1 in Ireland.

No queer was just another word for odd, weird, and depending on the context, possible feeling a little ill. Like you were starting to get a cold, or flu etc.

GUARANTEED TO OFFEND SOMEBODY!



I saw my mate Charlie this morning, he's only got one arm bless him.

I shouted - "Where you off to Charlie?"

He said, "I'm off to change a light bulb."

Well I just cracked up, couldn't stop laughing, then said,

"That's gonna be a bit awkward init?"

"Not really." he said. "I still have the receipt, you insensitive bastard."

______________________________ __________


Went out last night and got really wasted.

I woke up this morning next to a fat old bird who was snoring ..

So, at least I got home OK.

______________________________ __________





Angela Merkel arrives at Passport Control in Athens airport.

"Nationality?" asks the immigration officer.

"German," she replies.k

"Occupation?

"No, just here for a few days."

______________________________ __________



As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at a Parking Officer's funeral,

A voice from inside screams:

"I'm not dead, I'm not dead. Let me out!"

The Vicar smiles, leans forward, sucking air through his teeth and mutters,

"Too late, mate, the paperwork's already done."

______________________________ __________





I spent a couple of hours defrosting the fridge last night.

Or "foreplay" as she likes to call it.

______________________________ __________



After both suffering from depression for a while,

Me and the missus were going to commit suicide together yesterday.

Strangely enough, however, once she killed herself I started to feel a lot better.

So I thought - sod it, I'll soldier on.

______________________________ __________



I woke up this morning at 8 and could sense something was wrong.

I got downstairs and found the wife face down on the kitchen floor,

Not breathing! I panicked. I didn't know what to do.

Then I remembered the local cafe serves breakfast until 11.30.

______________________________ __________



"Jesus Loves You."

Nice to hear in church but not in a Mexican prison.

Got caught having a pee in the local swimming pool today.

The lifeguard shouted at me so loud I nearly fell in.

______________________________ __________



I woke to go to the toilet in the middle of the night and noticed

A burglar sneaking through next door's garden.

Suddenly my neighbour came from nowhere and smacked

him over the head with a shovel killing him instantly.

He then began to dig a grave with the shovel.

Astonished, I got back into bed.

My wife said "Darling, you're shaking, what is it?"

"You'll never believe what I've just seen!"

I said, "That tosser next door has still got my bloody shovel."

A man is seeking to join the Glasgow Police force.

The Sergeant doing the interview says:

"Your qualifications all look good,

But there is an attitude suitability test that you must take before you can be accepted."

Then, sliding a pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, he says:

"Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal immigrants,

Six drug dealers, six extremists, and a rabbit"

The man being interviewed asks, "Why the rabbit?"

"Excellent" says the Sergeant. "When can you start?"
Greetings All,from far Northern NSW.

Basil, there is a excavator operator in Byron goes under name of Big Toe who was a thalidomide victim so is armless. His machine has been jigged up for toe use only and he is brilliant and universally admired. Hope he is not a Tiger supporter reading this forum.

Not much talk about 3 of my favourites. The Beach Boys, Hermans Hermits and Don Maclean. All class acts and i still listen to them at least once a week.

recently an older couple passed away in sad circumstances in the palm beach area.The carer died and her partner later died of malnutrition.
this prompted the police investigating officer to make a public plea for people to be aware of older people in the community who struggle with outside communication.
The couple were pre war babies and not baby boomers as some forumers,like myself, who log on to this forum are .
The police officer believed that adults who struggled through the war became resililient,resourceful
and community minded.As a baby boomer we all got to enjoy the golf clubs,rsls,memorial halls and parks that were created by the pre war generation.
Their generation didnt become social forumers .They relied on face to face communication- getting their groceries from the corner shops and having their social contacts in this manner.
The police officer went on to issue a plea for people to be aware of older people and check in on them every now and then.Seems like a simple thing to do.
