Virus Warning (humor)

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Another email...with a "health" warning of sorts. It came with cartoons and with the comments in a different color print. I have put the comments in quotes to set them apart on here.

Virus Warning - coming sooner or later!

I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus. Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one. It appears to affect some born prior to 1970

1.. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice. "Done that!"

2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail ! "That too!"

3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person.. "yep!"

4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you. "Aaha!"

5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. "Well darn!"

6. Causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished. "Oh, no not again!"

7. Causes you to hit "DELETE" instead of "SEND.." "And I just hate that!"

8. Causes you to hit "SEND" when you should "DELETE." "Oh No!"

"Hmmm.....Have I already sent this to You, or did you send it to me?"

More silly health guidelines

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I copied this from a FB post, but have received it via email several times. Enjoy!

I love this guy and his philosophy
Smart Doctor!

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two body, your ratio two to one.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain...good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?

Q : Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Oh no! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.

Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!

Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"


For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans...

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    Hey asta, I seen it too and giggled out loud.
Someone in the Park here, said the DR told him not to worry about dieting after 70 cuz he did as much damage to his body as he was going to do. I guess the Dr didn't think he could change things. Well, I don't believe that for a minute. I want to keep trying. MA

Another view on aging.

Monday, January 14, 2013

People do share the silliest things. This came via email:

Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding You, too.

Don't laugh.... It is all true!

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run - anywhere.

4. People call at 9 PM and ask, 'Did I wake you?'

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 4 PM.

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11.You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list. And you notice these are all in big print for your convenience.


Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill, and a laxative on the same night!.

Rainy Day musings

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Another deluge has is coming in waves today.

Big weather changes are happening here. We've had 2 1/2 inches of rain over the last two days. This morning, another deluge began..and we are to be wet all is coming in waves. For the last few days, it has been unseasonably warm for TN in January. 70 and 72 degrees. Today this wet stuff will also bring plummeting temps and flash flood warnings all day. Tomorrow...MORE rain, but this time very cold temps....hopefully above freezing during the day..(have forgotten the details they are talking more about today than coming up).

Front part of the house is in the mid sixties, so I went and did my T-tapp...and did, I think, 5 flights of stairs. I simply MUST increase my exercise and its intensity to work my blood sugars into submission! Am going to cool down..and then go do the stairs some more.

Between dancing emoticon , stairs emoticon , T-Tapp (no exactly right icon for this one!) emoticon and when I add it back in, Leslie Sansone emoticon ...I AM getting exercise in and am seeing changes. I am gradually passing on some of my larger size clothing...still in shock over realizing I have been wearing the wrong size clothing. My midriff is still my biggest issue...Gotta get that whittled down. Frankly, I don't care near as much about the pounds I want off as I do about getting the blood sugars back down. I know I can do it...but I MUST stay more focused.

    How great that you are noticing you are losing. I hope you are able to get those numbers where they need to be for your blood sugar.

Have a wonderful day!

    And we're COLD....the weather patterns are chainging, but in the time of the end, a lot of things are changing.
When we go to meeting this afternoon I will be bundled up with a warm sweater, jacket and a wool scarf, along with my warm hat and gloves. emoticon

Glad to see you working on your blood sugars....sure can be a challenge, but emoticon

    Really HOT weather our side. Our poor brothers and sisters had to endure temperatures of 33C (91F) for today. My Carol said she barely heard a word this afternoon and the sister next to her was bathed in perspiration.
We have ours next weekend, and Im praying for cool weather. Other than our meeting I was able to come home and stay indoors with the fan going to keep me cool.

    The health is much more important than the pounds for sure. It took me many years to realize that. Now that I am getting healthier, the pounds are coming off as a bonus. emoticon You can do this!

Stay Young With Me

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Got this in an email today. Wish I could figure out how to share the cute illustrations that came with it.

Stay Young With Me!!

We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!


Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of
Whelan's and Madam) she said she wanted this epitaph: Tried everything twice...loved it both times!

Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

Enjoy the simple things.

Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.

Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the
guilt is.

Tell the people you love that you love them at every opportunity. I love you, my special friend.

Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second time.

if you don't send this to at least 4 people - who cares?
But do share this with someone.

Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
