Anna, Anna. Oh Anna!

Saw some video's of Anna Nicole Smith that were taken 10 and fifteen years ago. She was not only beautiful, but seemed to be on the ball as well. Very well spoken and intelligent!

Then this was taken a month or two ago in the Bahama's ........ and you still wonder why she died?

Anna - totally fried!!!!!!


She never did get over the death of her son and it was a vicious downward spiral that she was on!

Saturday Morning Confusion!

Kim Jong-Il's son arrested again!

Kim Jong-nam (born May 10, 1971, Pyongyang, North Korea), is the eldest son of Kim Jong-il, ruler of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea).

Until recently it was believed that he was being groomed as Kim Jong-il's successor but recent reports suggest he has fallen from favour.

In May 2001, Kim was arrested on arrival at New Tokyo International Airport (now Narita International Airport), accompanied by two women and a four-year old boy identified as his son. He was travelling on a forged Dominican Republic passport using a Chinese alias, Pang Xiong.

Kim apparently told his questioners that he was in Japan to visit Tokyo's Disneyland.



After being detained for several days, he was deported, on the instructions of the Japanese government, to the People's Republic of China.

The incident caused Kim Jong-il to cancel a planned visit to China because of the embarrassment to both countries.

Yesterday (Friday) Kim Jong-nam was arrested at L.A.'s LAX airport after trying to enter the United States on another false passport.

Kim informed authorities that he was in L.A. because he wanted to attend the Oscar's and meet some "movie stars," and then go to Disneyland!

Authorities are currently conferring with the state department on what to do with him, although sending him to Guantanamo Bay seems out of the question!

The Land of the "Not So Free!"

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt — An Egyptian blogger was convicted of insulting Islam and President Hosni Mubarak and sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday in Egypt’s first prosecution of a blogger.

Abdel Kareem Nabil, a 22-year-old former student at Egypt’s Al-Azhar University, (An Islamic institution that kicked him out for exercising his "adademic freedom.") had pleaded innocent to all charges.

Human rights groups had called for his release.

The judge issued the verdict in a brief, five-minute session in a court in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. He sentenced Nabil to three years in prison for insulting Islam and inciting sedition and another year for insulting Mubarak.

(It's a good thing you can't be punished in the States for insulting Bush, eh............... at least, not so far!)

Nabil had faced a possible maximum sentence of up to nine years in prison, which goes to show the state of "freedom of speech" in that part of the world!

FOOD FIGHT!

They sure know how to have fun in Italy and Spain!! Yes sir!

Ivrea is a small city about 40 minutes North of Turin. It has its day of glory once a year during Carnival, when a unique, exciting, anachronistic and most of all, juicy orange battle takes place. (This week!) The battle is an allegoric representation of a local insurrection, in 1194, against Holy Roman Emperor Frederick of Swabia. (a.k.a. Barbarossa - Red Beard, one of the Hapsburg's)

The account tells of a population incited to rebellion by the violent act of a woman who was only protecting her honour.
A young girl supposedly started the insurrection because "Red Beard" had a practice of letting Nobles enjoy a woman before her husband did.
That woman was Violetta, a young commoner who presented the head of the local tyrant -- Marquis Raineri de Biandrate -- to her fellow citizens from the castle balcony after he tried to steal her virginity on the eve of her wedding.

The citizens, empowered by Violetta's defiance, stormed the castle and burned it to the ground.




The carnival is rich in costumes, music and symbolism. The oranges of the Ivrea battles represent the head of the marquis. The pulp and juice are his blood.
Despite the general chaos, the line between combatants was clear.







Teams of throwers are outfitted in ornate uniforms, their volunteer adversaries wear padding and ride around in carts, and spectators are advised to wear a red scarf as they watch combatants -- many fueled by pasta and copious amounts of mulled wine -- repeatedly mount sorties against their symbolic enemies.

There are nine teams, 46 carts and more than a million oranges.

Later in the summer La Tomatina is a festival held on a Wednesday near the end of August in the town of Buñol in the Valencia region in Spain.

Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world to fight in a harmless battle where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

Pray for Anna!

The "Missus Herself" had an epiphany this morning and insists that I put it in the blog. Since she is usually right about stuff like this I think she may be on to something!

About seven o'clock this morning she sat bolt upright in bed and proclaimed in a loud voice; "I know why Anna Nicole's mother wants to bury her in Texas!"

I pretended to still be asleep, but this only worked for a few seconds until I was violently shaken and told to wake up! "Listen," my wife said. "That mean old woman (Anna's mother) only wants Anna Nicole's body so that she can build a shrine and charge admission! We know she doesn't have any money and this way she can have the same sort of deal they have with Elvis!"

"On top of that," she went on. "If she gets the boy as well it will be a double whammy and bring in a lot more people. That poor woman (Anna) will never get any peace! I should phone the judge and tell him!"

With that, I rolled over and mumbled, "Maybe you should bury me there so that I can get some peace!"

They Did What!!!!!

Two Florida teenagers, ages 17 and 16 respectively, boyfriend and girlfriend -- snapped digital photos of themselves engaged in sexual activity.

It's not against the law in Florida for a 16 and 17 year old to engage in consensual sex, but where they went wrong is when they put the pictures on the Internet.

You see, anyone who puts out a nude picture of someone under the age of 18 is committing an offence, so they were both charged with distributing child pornography............. of themselves!!!!!!!!

Each was charged with promoting a photograph featuring the sexual conduct of a child.

Based on the contents of his e-mail account, the boy was also charged with an extra count of possession of child pornography.

Talk about your "self abuse!"

(The first thought that came to mind was, "Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed, but in this case it probably would have been better for them it they had!)

After that it's anyone's ball game, although I did give the opinion a few weeks ago that perhaps God doesn't interfere with things because we now have "free will" and any meddling on God's part would undermine that?" In other words, we have to grow-up and start becoming responsible for ourselves!!!)

Australia Shines Green!

Australia is about to give the boot to Thomas Edison.

The man who made the incandescent light bulb practical is about to have his invention banned "down under."

Legislation to gradually ban the sale of the old style bulbs will reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions and cut household power bills by over 60%.

All these bulbs will be replaced, first by fluorescent lighting, and eventually by a new generation of high luminosity L.E.D. lights that use only a very small percentage of the power required by today's lighting.

On Australia's initiative, California and New Jersey in the United States and Ontario here in Canada are also considering a gradual phase-out of incandescent lighting.

A bright idea, and one whose time has come!

Here's the scene; You have been told that you are going to spend the rest of eternity with one woman, and one woman only.

God gives you a choice. You can spend it with a white, white woman, or you can spend it with a black, black woman.

That means being with them all the time, hugging and kissing and sleeping together and cuddling on the sofa etc. etc.

Now, here is the white, white woman!














And here is the black, black woman!

Ain't It The Truth!

A brief Summary of Life
GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:
1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptise cats.
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad,
don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back.
They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.

GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:
1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fibre, not the toy.

GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:
1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus. (!)

SUCCESS:
At age 4 success is . . not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is . . . having friends.
At age 17 success is . . having a drivers licence.
At age 35 success is . having money.
At age 50 success is . . . having money.
At age 70 success is . .. . having a drivers licence.
At age 75 success is . . having friends.
At age 80 success is . . . not piddling in your pants.

Pass this on to someone who could use a laugh.

Always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way;
BUT NEVER forget the blessings that come each day.

Have a wonderful day with many *smiles*

Now That's Not Right!

While the last piece was about how the church can screw things up, this one is about some of the good it can do!

Although it is hard to believe, I just heard on the noon-news that Telus Mobility, who is a cell phone provider in the Canadian province of British Columbia, is going to offer porn over their cell phones.

Let me repeat that! They are going to offer porn over the cell phones that subscribe to their service.

I don't know if the whole world is going nuts, but at least the Catholic Church in B.C. has stepped in and called for a boycott of all Telus Mobility products until it is taken off!

I sometimes feel like Alice in Wonderland.

Things just get curiouser and curiouser!

Sunday Morning Funnies!

SO, HOW DID YOU BREAK YOUR ARM?

A friend just got back from a holiday skiing trip to Utah with the kind of story that warms the cockles of anybody's heart.

Conditions were perfect...12 below, no feeling in the toes, basic numbness all over...the "Tell me when we're having fun" kind of day.

One of the women in the group complained to her husband that she was in dire need of a rest room.

He told her not to worry that he was sure there was relief waiting at the top of the lift in the form of a powder room for female skiers in distress. He was wrong, of course, and the pain did not go away.

If you've ever had nature hit its panic button in you, then you know that a temperature of 12 below doesn't help matters.

With time running out, the woman weighed her options. Her husband, picking up on the intensity of the pain, suggested that since she was wearing an all-white ski outfit, she should go off in the woods and no one would even notice.

He assured her, "The white will provide more than adequate camouflage."

So she headed for the tree line, began lowering her ski pants and proceeded to do her thing.

If you've ever parked on the side of a slope, then you know there is a right way and wrong way to set your skis so you don't move.

Yup, you got it!!!

She had them positioned the wrong way.. Steep slopes are not forgiving... even during the most embarrassing moments.

Without warning, the woman found herself skiing backward, out-of-control, racing through the trees...somehow missing all of them and onto another slope. Her derriere and the reverse side were still bare, her pants down around her knees, and she was picking up speed all the while.

She continued backwards, totally out-of-control, creating an unusual vista for the other skiers. The woman skied back under the lift and finally collided violently with a pylon.

The bad news was that she broke her arm and was unable to pull up her ski pants.

At long last her husband arrived, putting an end to her nudie show, then summoned the ski patrol. They transported her to a hospital.

While in the emergency room, a man with an obviously broken leg was put in the bed next to hers. "So, how'd you break your leg?" she asked, making small talk.

"It was the stupidest thing you ever saw," he said. "I was riding up this ski lift and suddenly, I couldn't believe my eyes! There was this crazy woman skiing backward, out-of-control, down the mountain, with her bare bottom hanging out of her pants.

I leaned over to get a better look and fell out of the lift." ..... "So, how'd you break your arm?"

Go Grannies - and Grandpas!!

The computer swallowed my granny,
Yes, honestly its true.
She pressed 'control' and 'enter,'
And disappeared from view.

It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
She must have caught a virus,
Or been eaten by a worm.

I've searched through the recycle bin,
And files of every kind;
I've even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.

In desperation, I asked Jeeves,
My searches to refine.
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found 'online.'

So, if inside your 'Inbox,'
My Granny you should see,
Please 'Copy,’ Scan' and 'Paste' her,
And send her back to me!

This is a tribute to all the Grannies (My Mom) who have been fearless and learned to use the computer........They are the Greatest!!!
