Give Me A Push .....

A man and his wife are awakened, at 3 o'clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door.

The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push. "Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3 o'clock in the morning!"
He slams the door and returns to bed. Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" She asks

"No, I did not, it is 3 o'clock in the morning and it is pouring out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember, about three months ago when we broke down, And those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be Ashamed of yourself!"

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes" comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?", calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband

"Over here on the swing!", replies the drunk.

The British Christmas Panto.

This strange event in British history can be traced back to the old 16th-century Italian commedia dell’ arte tradition, a populist kind of travelling theatre performed by wandering actors.

I have never been to a panto, not sure if I want to at my time of life, but I am sure it is good fun for the kids .

Killer Jigsaw Puzzle ......

A beautiful blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me? I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started.
Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a Rooster."
Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle.

She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says,

"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to
be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a Rooster."
He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then.....", he said with a deep sigh, ....

"Let's put all these Corn Flakes back in the box."

First Burglary in Living Memory.

It seems a tiny island in the Hebrides caled Colonsay, has had its first burglary in living memory.

This little island has a population of 125 and homes and cars are always kept unlocked. A visiting workman stole £60 from the house of an old soldier. This is the first crime of any kind since 2004, when several cars were stolen and driven around the Island before being dumped.

Th culprit of the burglary, a 38 year old man from Govan in Glasgow was fined £400 and ordered to pay compensation to the 75 year old victim.

Well, modern trends seem to catching up with even the romote of area's. From the reasearch I have completed writing this little article, I would like to visit this little Island, but keep my house locked at all times.

The dramatic cliffs of the western coast of Colonsay are home to enormous colonies of seabirds, notably fulmars, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes, shags and all types of gull. The beaches and rocky inlets support colonies of ringed plover, terns, oyster catchers and eiders amongst others.

"Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, right
up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would
like to buy some cyanide."

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacists eyes got big and he exclaimed, "Lord have mercy!
I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law!

I lose my license! They'll throw both of us in jail! All kinds
bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!"

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her
husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well now.
That's different. You didn't tell me you had a prescription!”

Victoria Crowned Pigeon.

While searching for information about the Pelican who ate a pigeon, I found this site for Bristol Zoo.Which has some wonderful articles and facts about animals. One of which is about The Victoria crowned pigeon.

I do not like pigeons, but this is a beautiful bird. If you like Pigeons, take a look at This Blog.

Update : My Computer is working fine now. It only took the man a few hours to fix and after 4 years the drive was getting slow, so a full install is just what the doctor ordered.
