A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old mate:
    'So I hear you're getting married?'
    'Do I know her?'
    'This woman, is she good looking?'
    'Not really.'
    'Is she a good cook?'
    'No, she can't cook too well.'
    'Does she have lots of money?'
    'No! Poor as a church mouse.'
    'Well, then, is she good in bed?'
    'I don't know.'
    'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?'
    'Because she can still drive!'

    After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in his seat and closed his eyes.

    As the train rolled out of the station, the young woman sitting next to him pulled out her mobile phone and started talking in a loud voice:

    "Hi sweetheart. It's Sue. I'm on the train".

    "Yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty, but I had a long meeting".

    "No, honey, not with that Kevin from the accounting office. It was with the boss".

    "No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life".

    "Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart!"

    Fifteen minutes later, she was still talking loudly.

    When the man sitting next to her had enough, he leaned over and said into the phone,

    "Sue, hang up the phone and come back to bed."

    Sue doesn't use her mobile phone in public any longer. :):):)



    The lost art of handwriting is one of the few ways we can uniquely express ourselves. There’s something poetic about grasping a writing instrument and feeling it hit the paper as your thoughts flow through your fingers and pour into words. So, the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) suggests you take advantage of National Handwriting Day on January 23 and use a pen or a pencil to rekindle that creative feeling through a handwritten note, poem, letter or journal entry.

    Handwriting allows us to be artists and individuals during a time when we often use computers, faxes and e-mail to communicate. Fonts are the same no matter what computer you use or how you use it. Fonts lack a personal touch. Handwriting can add intimacy to a letter and reveal details about the writer’s personality. Throughout history, handwritten documents have sparked love affairs, started wars, established peace, freed slaves, created movements and declared independence.

    "Though computers and e-mail play an important role in our lives, nothing will ever replace the sincerity and individualism expressed through the handwritten word," said David H. Baker, WIMA's Executive Director.

    The purpose of National Handwriting Day is to alert the public to the importance of handwriting. According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting.

    WIMA sponsors National Handwriting Day every January 23 in conjunction with John Hancock’s birthday. Hancock was the first to sign the Declaration of Independence and is famous for his large, bold signature.

    The Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association is a national trade association covering $4.5-billion industry of pen, pencil and marker manufacturers.



    Did you know that Sir Thomas Beecham (1879-1961) who was the founder of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, once ran into a distinguished looking woman in the lobby of a hotel.

    He thought he knew her, but could not remember her name but vaguely remembered that she had a brother. So hoping for any clue as to her identity, he asked her how her brother was and whether he was still working at the same job.

    'Oh, he's very well,' said Princess Mary about George V1, 'and still king'. :):)

    I remember seeing someone at a bar that I thought I knew so I went up and said hello. To the amusement of a friend who was standing next to me I was saying hello to a famous newsreader :) He was very kind and said hello back though !!!!!
