My Web Pages.

I am still working on my site, but hopefully, before long I will finish it.

One of my main features is a page of Freebies. These are programs or resources that I use. Please have a look and see if any of these would be useful to you.

Also my page Army Game, has pictures of myself as a very young man.

Here is a picture I found on the web this week.

A Brave Generation ..

A story in the monthly magazine History Today has a article honouring The Navy for winning the Battle of Britain !

I believe it was the team spirit of everyday people of that generation that stuck together and defeated Hitler and his of troops getting ready for operaton Sealion.

From the skies above Kent to the Home Front, people pooled together to defeat a common foe. This generation ensured our country remained a free nation.

Could This Be The First " Innit "

In Canada, a Husky is any sled dog with a husky bark. Originating in northern Siberia, the Siberian Husky, which is probably descended from the wolf, was developed by the native Chukchi tribe. In 1909, the breed was introduced in Canada to be used in sled dog races.

About Time .......

More than 300 British soldiers who were shot during World War I for military offences are to receive formal pardons, Defence Secretary Des Browne has announced.

It is believed 306 British soldiers were shot during the war from 1914-1918.

The BBC News website looks at some of those who are set to receive pardons.

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golfballs. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor nexted picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes".

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

"Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things -- your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions -- and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else -- the small stuff. If you put the sand in the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have enough room for the things that are important to you.

"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first -- the things that really matter. Set your priorities, the rest is just sand."

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked.

It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there is always room for a couple cups of coffee with a friend."

Time for a Joke ....

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and
watched in horror as her
ball headed directly toward a foursome of men
playing the next hole.

The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped
his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to
roll around in agony.

The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately
began to apologize "Please allow me to help. I'm a physical therapist
and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me," she told him.

"Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few
minutes," the man replied.

He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal
position, still clasping his hands together at his groin.. At her persistence,
however, he finally allowed her to help.

She gently took his hands away and laid them to the
side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside. She administered
tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, "How
does that feel?"

He replied, "It feels great .....but my thumb still hurts like hell".

Top of the Pops ...

The final broadcast on Sunday 30 April 2006 attracted 4.8 million viewers.

I remember watching this program on a black and white TV in my youth. This was the only way for poorer folk,who could not afford to go to concerts, to see thier favourite bands.

At its peek, millions would be glued to this weekly event.

This did not make Top of the Pops ... But it was a big hit in America, for The Dead Milkman.
