Now I don't care who you are, what religion you are, where you live, or how old you are.........this is funny!







There were five houses of religion in a small Florida town:

The Presbyterian Church,
The Baptist Church,

The Methodist Church,

The Catholic Church and

The Jewish Synagogue...



Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.


One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels.. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were pre-destined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will.




In The BAPTIST CHURCH the squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it.


The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.



The Methodist Church got together and decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.



But......The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution..They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.





Not much was heard about The Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.



thanks, uncle gabe!
saved a cute little baby mouse from layla last night. bob was just laying there watching the whole thing. the little mousie was hiding behind the table leg so i got the cats and put them downstairs and then got a small rag and cornered the little guy and took him outside.

I Am Not Yours


by Sara Teasdale


I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

WOW!!!!!!!
Common Myths About Labor Unions

By DAVID MACARAY Counterpunch, March 14, 2008

Myth #1: Union wages are responsible for companies relocating to foreign countries.

It’s not inaccurate to say that some jobs (e.g., manufacturing jobs) have been moved from the Midwest and Northeast to the South in order to take advantage of a non-union environment, a lower standard of living, and less stringent government regulations regarding environment protection and workers’ rights. It’s a fact. And there’s no arguing that unions are partially to “blame” for that. Even auto manufacturers in faraway Japan have heard about the built-in benefits of setting up shop in the American South; that’s why they install their factories down there.

Replacing a union forklift driver earning $17.50 per hour in Cleveland, Ohio, with a non-union driver earning $10.50 per hour in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, might be enough of an inducement for a factory owner to pick up stakes and relocate to Dixie, particularly if he had a large number of employees. Moreover, there’s not much a union can do about these wage differentials, other than try to organize as many sites in the South as possible, in order to level the playing field.

But a company that moves its operation to a foreign country isn’t doing it to avoid paying a union wage; it’s doing it to avoid paying an American wage. Where being able to pay a non-union forklift driver $10.50 per hour instead $17.50 per hour represents an opportunity to trim costs, the prospect of moving abroad is seen as a shrieking bonanza.

Moving an operation to Asia or Latin America is not a case of union vs. non-union. It’s a case of a decent standard of living trying to compete with the permanent underclass of a fledgling economy. It’s no contest.

And to suggest that it’s somehow organized labor’s fault that businesses are forced to exploit the foreign labor market is to perpetuate a lie. The United States could go non-union overnight, and you’d still have businesses seeking foreign labor. Why? Because the wage differentials are simply too staggering, too alluring, even compared to work being done in the U.S. for the federal minimum wage.

Myth #2: Union members are sub-standard workers.

Consider the premise for a moment. People can say or think whatever they wish about labor unions (they can accuse them of being anachronistic, out of touch, too powerful, etc.), but they can’t deny that, across the board, union jobs typically offer better wages, benefits and working conditions than non-union jobs. The notion that the best paying, most coveted jobs in a community would attract the least competent workers simply makes no sense.

As a general rule, the highest paying and best-benefited employers will attract the highest caliber of worker—whether we’re talking about accountants, cooks, college teachers or warehousemen. Think about it. Which warehouse is going to attract and maintain the better shipping checkers—the one that is clean, safe and generous, or the hole-in-the-wall outfit that pays lousy wages and offers little or no benefits?

Also, because a union shop offers better pay, benefits and working conditions, it’s going to have many more applicants to choose from, allowing management to pick and choose from the very best candidates, an option the tiny mom-and-pop enterprise won’t have.

Still, this notion that union members somehow aren’t as competent or hard-working as non-union members has seeped into the national consciousness. Part of it may be because a union contract provides workers with dignity on the job. That doesn’t mean they’re bad workers; it just means they don’t have to grovel or jump to attention when a boss passes by. Part of it may be that a union contract exposes inferior managers. Working within the confines of a union contract requires the bosses to be consistent and attentive, something which some managers (particularly the lazy or dumb ones) aren’t capable of.

You commonly hear this work performance slur in regard to the California school teachers’ union, where incompetent teachers (rather than a myriad of other obvious factors) are blamed for low test scores. This is a myth that is being propagated by school administrators who don’t have the courage or resources to address the root problem. Blaming the teachers is far easier.

If people really, truly believe that union workers are less competent than non-union workers, then they should think twice before calling 9-11 or flying somewhere on a trip. Police, firemen and pilots are heavily unionized occupations.

Myth #3: Union members can’t be fired.

As good as union workers generally are, there are occasions where they, like anyone else, deserve to be fired. And, despite the myth, union members do get fired. Indeed, union members in this country get fired every day, for every manner of violation, from insubordination to poor work performance to insurance fraud to chronic absenteeism (the most common offense).

No contract in the world is going to include language that forbids management from firing a substandard employee. Again, all one needs to do is consider the premise. What management representative would ever sign a contract that contained “immunity” language of that sort? And what union rep, no matter how bold or arrogant, would dare suggest that such restrictive language be written into it? In truth, no one wants to work with deadbeats . . . not even other deadbeats.

Is it harder to fire a union worker than a non-union worker? Yes. Thank god, yes. Having a modicum of job security is one of the virtues of being a union member. Where a boss in a non-union shop might be able to fire an employee because, say, he didn’t like his “Nader for President” bumper sticker, or because he wanted to give the job to his wife’s nephew, he couldn’t do that in a union shop, because in a facility governed by a union contract you need actual grounds to get rid of someone.

Again, it’s school teachers who are frequently scapegoated here. Administrators complain that it’s inordinately hard to fire an incompetent teacher, even though, per the provisions of the union contract, the school has two full years from a teacher’s date of hire to fire him or her for any reason they like, without having to defend that decision. Two years. Compare that window of opportunity to the standard 60 or 90 day probationary periods found in most businesses.

David Macaray, a Los Angeles playwright and writer, was president and chief contract negotiator of the Assn. of Western Pulp and Paper Workers, Local 672, from 1989 to 2000.

greying up out there. did a bit of laundry. now i'm just wandering thru the place looking for things that i only clean once in a while-like the shower caddy-yuk! so it's in the dishwasher with a few other seldom scrubbed things.

i'm amazed every year at just how fast the leaves go from glorious to crinkly monotones of brown and cover up the grass and the streets and clog up the gutters and the storm basins on the berms of the roads. i still have a ton of leaves hanging tho-so no sense in getting the gutters clean yet.

Monet's Waterlilies

Today as the news from Selma and Saigon
poisons the air like fallout,
I come again to see
the serene, great picture that I love.

Here space and time exist in light
the eye like the eye of faith believes.
The seen, the known
dissolve in iridescence, become
illusive flesh of light
that was not, was, forever is.

O light beheld as through refracting tears.
Here is the aura of that world
each of us has lost.
Here is the shadow of its joy.
yes, i've posted it before-
but it's worth repeating:




bless this man!




beautiful fall day.

another bit of late night mike from early on, before he started on discovery channel and - dirty jobs:





















little sweetie's home. i took a small nap for about 1/2 an hour and then started doing things round here while i kept 1 eye to snbc.

(sometimes i just can not handle anymore news.)

there are times when i like to fantasize on what my dream house would be like. what things i would have if i had a skill that commanded a high salary or if i hit the lotto!

today, on snbc they had 3 of my favorite things-

lladro,waterford and wedgwood. OH, there were a few items today that had me day dreaming. i was arranging and rearranging my crystal and porcelain on my imaginary shelves and tables. there were place settings of fine bone china and crystal stemware.


it's a relaxing little daydream and daydreams are free.
mike rowe- the early years!

love this guy.

went on our annual fall leaf drive today. usually we go on columbus day but it was rainy and cold and so we went today. beautiful weather BUT it is very odd up north. the leaves really haven't turned much. for the most part the leaves are a dull dark green with some yellows and drab orange showing. we went all the way up to tionesta and oil city and franklin. drove thru cook's forrest and across the tionesta dam.

the forrest is always beautiful no matter the colors of the leaves and they have golden ferns and big dark grey boulders that we haven't down here.


strange too. there were NO hawks flying. not a one. they were in allegheny county and part of butler and then-none. that was sort of spooky.

i did see something that i have never seen before tho. i saw a dead porcupine on my side of the road! i've never seen a porcupine outside of a zoo before.

i also saw a farm with long horn cattle. been thru pa. farm country many many times and never saw those. hell, i saw buffalo last year and a llama ranch but never long horns. it was pretty cool.

went passed a lot of amish farms and saw the buggys on the road. i'm used to that tho.

it was a nice drive on a lovely day but our foliage here is far more colorful that up north.
Morning (Love Sonnet XXVII)

by Pablo Neruda


Naked you are simple as one of your hands;
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round.
You've moon-lines, apple pathways
Naked you are slender as a naked grain of wheat.

Naked you are blue as a night in Cuba;
You've vines and stars in your hair.
Naked you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.

Naked you are tiny as one of your nails;
Curved, subtle, rosy, till the day is born
And you withdraw to the underground world.

As if down a long tunnel of clothing and of chores;
Your clear light dims, gets dressed, drops its leaves,
And becomes a naked hand again.

LOONS AHEAD:










("...i did write the forward to the book") nuff said!
A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

'Amazing,' he thought as he flew down I-45, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring..
He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.

Suddenly he thought, 'What am I doing? I'm too old for this' and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.


The trooper slowly got out of his car, walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, 'Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go.'


The old man replied " A year ago, my wife ran off with a State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."



'Have a good day sir,' replied the trooper.


(See, old folks can sometimes still think fast.)

i should stop looking at gifts that people would like or that i would like to get them because those people are no longer


around anymore.


there are leaves in my yard that i do not recognise and i haven't been able to find the tree they fell from- ghost tree???


that 5 minutes is still a long damn time on a treadmill when my body is like a sack of pudding!


i wonder WHY , just...

WHY. pick a topic. any topic.


been thinking of not thinking.

i think that's a deep thought.


wondering WHY some people are not happy unless they have someone to focus anger on, wondering too




WHY

some people are not happy unless they have someone to focus desire on.


wonder why i should care

or if i don't care enough.


i wonder why it seems so hard to let go or

No Doctor's Today, Thank You

by Ogden Nash


They tell me that euphoria is the feeling of feeling wonderful,
well, today I feel euphorian,
Today I have the agility of a Greek god and the appetitite of a
Victorian.
Yes, today I may even go forth without my galoshes,
Today I am a swashbuckler, would anybody like me to buckle
any swashes?
This is my euphorian day,
I will ring welkins and before anybody answers I will run away.
I will tame me a caribou
And bedeck it with marabou.
I will pen me my memoirs.
Ah youth, youth! What euphorian days them was!
I wasn't much of a hand for the boudoirs,
I was generally to be found where the food was.
Does anybody want any flotsam?
I've gotsam.
Does anybody want any jetsam?
I can getsam.
I can play chopsticks on the Wurlitzer,
I can speak Portuguese like a Berlitzer.
I can don or doff my shoes without tying or untying the laces because
I am wearing moccasins,
And I practically know the difference between serums and antitoccasins.
Kind people, don't think me purse-proud, don't set me down as
vainglorious,
I'm just a little euphorious.

Gentle Thoughts for Today


Birds of a feather flock together . . . .and then shit on your car.

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement .

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.'

If you think there is good in everybody, you
haven't met everybody.

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it's called golf.



thanks uncle gabe!

feeling a little off this morning. like i could come down with a cold OR it could be a burn in my esophagus from my reflux. sometimes that makes me feel sort of beat. it's hard for me to tell if the reflux kicked up cause my esophagus is mostly numb from the years of repeated acid episodes,

anyway, hoping to get a haircut this week.have a wedding to attend this weekend and i look like albert einstein with this hair!

Je suis malade
Je ne rêve plus je ne fume plus
Je n'ai même plus d'histoire
Je suis sale sans toi
Je suis laide sans toi
Je suis comme un orphelin dans un dortoir

Je n'ai plus envie de vivre dans ma vie
Ma vie cesse quand tu pars
Je n'ais plus de vie et même mon lit
Ce transforme en quai de gare
Quand tu t'en vas

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Comme quand ma mère sortait le soir
Et qu'elle me laissait seul avec mon désespoir

Je suis malade parfaitement malade
T'arrive on ne sait jamais quand
Tu repars on ne sait jamais où
Et ça va faire bientôt deux ans
Que tu t'en fous

Comme à un rocher
Comme à un péché
Je suis accroché à toi
Je suis fatigué je suis épuisé
De faire semblant d'être heureuse quand ils sont là

Je bois toutes les nuits
Mais tous les whiskies
Pour moi on le même goût
Et tous les bateaux portent ton drapeau
Je ne sais plus où aller tu es partout

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Je verse mon sang dans ton corps
Et je suis comme un oiseau mort quand toi tu dors

Je suis malade
Parfaitement malade
Tu m'as privé de tous mes chants
Tu m'as vidé de tous mes mots
Pourtant moi j'avais du talent avant ta peau

Cet amour me tue
Si ça continue je crèverai seul avec moi
Près de ma radio comme un gosse idiot
Écoutant ma propre voix qui chantera

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Comme quand ma mère sortait le soir
Et qu'elle me laissait seul avec mon désespoir

Je suis malade
C’est ça je suis malade
Tu m'as privé de tous mes chants
Tu m'as vidé de tous mes mots
Et j'ai le coeur complètement malade
Cerné de barricades
T'entends je suis malade
English
Je suis malade
I don’t dream anymore, i don’t smoke anymore
I don’t have a history anymore
I am dirty without you
I am ugly without you
I am like an orphan in a dormitory

I don’t feel like living in my life
My life stops when you leave
I don’t have a life anymore and even my bed
Turns into a platform (of a station)
When you go away

I am ill
Completely ill
Like when my mother went out in the evening
And that she left me alone with my despair

I am ill, fully ill
You come, we never know when
You leave again, we never know where
And it will be soon two years
Since you didn’t give a damn.

Like to a rock
Like to a sin
I am locked on to you
I am tired, I am exhausted
To pretend being happy when they are here

I drink every night
But all whiskies
For me, they have the same taste
And all the boats carry your flag
I don’t know anymore where to go, you are everywhere

I am ill
Completely ill
I pour my blood in your body
And i am like a dead bird when you sleep

I am ill
Perfectly ill
You have deprived me of all my songs
You have drained me of all my words
And I have the heart completely ill
Though i had talent before having your skin

This love is killing me
If this goes on, i’ll die alone with me
Near my radio, like an idiot kid
Listening to my own voice singing

I am ill
Completely ill
Like when my mother went out in the evening
And that she left me alone with my despair

I am ill
This it is, i am ill
You have deprived me of all my songs
You have drained me of all my words
And I have the heart completely ill
Surrounded by barricades
You understand, I am ill

Oh, I Wish I'd Looked After Me Tits

By Pam Ayres


Oh, I wish I'd looked after me dear old knockers,
Not flashed them to boys behind the school lockers,
Or let them get fondled by randy old dockers,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me tits.

Cos now I'm much older and gravity's winning.
It's Nature's revenge for all that sinning,
And those dirty memories are rapidly dimming,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me tits
'Cos tits can be such troublesome things
When they no longer bounce, but dangle and swing.
And although they go well with my Bingo wings,
I wish I'd looked after me tits.
When they're both long enough to tie up in a bow,
When it's not the sweet chariot that swings low,
When they're less of a friend and more of a foe,
Then I wish I'd looked after me tits.
When I was young I got whistles and hoots,
From the men on the site to the men in the suits,
Now me nipples get stuck in the zips on me boots,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me tits
When I was younger I rode bikes and scooters,
Cruising around with my favourite suitors.
Now the wheels get entangled with my dangling hooters,
I wish I'd looked after me tits.

When they follow behind and get trapped in the door,
When they're less in the air and more near the floor,
When people see less of them rather than more,
Oh, I wish I'd looked after me tits




making beans and greens.
i use fresh baby spinach and cannellini beans with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, a bit of chicken stock and a few drops of tabasco.

i spent the entire weekend alone. the phone never rang. i saw no one. it was a time to get my bearings and think. everyone needs that.
truthfully, i had to think in small periods of time. too much can be overwhelming.
especially now, at the age that i am. things come back that had been long misplaced.
memories are not always good ones even tho time softens most of them.some may look o.k. until you touch them and find they still have sharp edges that can slice deep.

it's like fitting a jigsaw puzzle made of razor blades together with the occasional piece made of velvet.

at 57 i've known for a very long time now why i've made the choices that i have.
it makes living with the consequences a bit easier but not easy.

there are things that i've done as i grew that amaze me to think that i lived thu them. there are things that i thought about that scare the fuck out of me.


there was things that did.

i am glad tho, that i've tried to be kind. not always succeeded and there were times when i shouldn't have.

there were times that people thought badly of me for trying. got the wrong ideas from watching me. when i was younger it really bothered me when people didn't understand. now, not so much. what can they do? certainly, they can not do what my body and my circumstances have.

yet, all in all, i have been pretty fortunate. i'm still here. i have some wonderful family members and people that i see now and again that i look forward to spending a few hours with here and there. i have had some wonderful pets and as for my home. i have more than i have ever had in my life. never ever had much, but the bills were always paid. my mother was really strong on that point. we made do after the bills were paid. i worked hard all my life, even tho i haven't formally worked in ages, i was here for whoever needed something. i've earned my keep. i am proud of that. i've help others. that makes me rest easier.

i've hurt some along the way. that hurts me still even tho most don't remember, wouldn't even remember or forgave me long ago . i stumble over those memories from time to time. i tripped and bruised myself over a few this weekend.


today, i got up and started my monday feeling a bit strange but a bit wiser too.
