Saturday Smiles

A political lesson from Raili Tanska. I don’t know the lady, but she seems to have a great pedigree, and she certainly brings a smile to my weekend!

I don’t often venture into politics on my blog,

but this one is a must share.

Thanks Pam  😀

The New Political Symbol:

THE NEW POLITICAL SYMBOL IS THAT OF A CONDOM, because it more accurately reflects the Politicians stance…. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually being screwed! Damn, it just doesn’t get more accurate than that!

 Given I’ve started I may as well continue on with the politics 

A Larry Hardiman definition

 “Politics” is derived from the words “poly” meaning “many”, and “tics” meaning “blood-sucking parasites.”

A few words of wisdom from George W Bush

  • I think war is a dangerous place.
  • Rarely is the question asked: is our children learning?
  • They misunderestimated me.
  • Information is moving. You know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it’s also moving through…

Dead or Alive?

I always thought, when I was young, I wouldn’t live to forty.

My Mother said I wouldn’t do if I was always naughty!

Yet here I am, a pensioner, exceeding expectation

and, now that I’ve passed 69, I look back with elation. 

 

I never thought that I would be a great success in life.

She’s now long gone, and so has Dad, and even my big sister.

But memories they linger on, and my, how we have missed her.

 

So, when I wake up each new day I thank my lucky stars.

I’m happy with my wrinkles, and with my many scars.

My Mum was right. She always was, as I’ve already said,

but wait a bit! I just woke up. Well, bugger me – I’m dead!

Broadsides

Viersen. It must have been a small agricultural village at one time. Set in vast acres of open fields of sugar beet and potatoes which ran all the way to the Dutch boarder. It became a satellite village, or a town, to Monchen Gladbach but I suspect it retained its primary agricultural nature until the coming of the railways. A major permanent way was built across the fields to the south east of the village, with sidings and sheds and workshops and a very handsome bahnhof. The rail line ran all the way into Belgium and Holland and North to the industrial Rhur. It was undoubtedly this that attracted the attention of the occupying British forces at the end of the second world war. It became, with its easy rail access to the ports at Antwerp and Ostend, the perfect place to locate a forward supply depot for the Army…

He’d checked 3 times now and he was certain. There were 3 nuts, 5 bolts, and 17 washers missing.
