    The video says it was uploaded in 2009 super interesting. Such a pity that people don't get that the highest being in the universe should have a personal name if the lowest creature in that same universe has one.

Idiot blog

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Oh the stuff I find in my email or on Facebook! How about this?! These all pertain to events in Australia.

IDIOT SIGHTING.

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 note.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.
She said, 'you gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar coin back.'
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we donít do that kind of thing.'
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at MacD's.

IDIOT SIGHTING.

We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'
We haven't used that repairman since...this happened in Ipswich, Qld
IDIOT SIGHTING.

I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbour call the local council P & W office to request the removal of the WOMBAT CROSSING sign on our road.
The reason: 'Too many wombats are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'
Story from Collingwood, Melbourne.

IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE.

My daughter went to a Mexican takeaway and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.
From Bankstown, Sydney.....

IDIOT SIGHTING.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'
To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'
He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'
This happened in Elizabeth S.A.

IDIOT SIGHTING.

The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
She is a government employee in ATO Newcastle NSW AU.

IDIOT SIGHTING.

When my husband and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driverís side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
ĎHey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!'
His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'

Did you know? Observations from an email

Monday, February 11, 2013

Couldn't copy the photos from the email, but thought this was interesting. This is all from an email that also had a bunch of orders to delete or pass it on and some other comments I chose to ignore.


DID YOU KNOW ?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ...

It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!


DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.


DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court Judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments



DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington D.C.


DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president known as "the Father of our Constitution" made the following statement: "we have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to The Ten Commandments of God."


DID YOU KNOW?
Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.


DID YOU KNOW?
Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established Orthodox churches in the colonies.


DID YOU KNOW?
Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law an oligarchy: the rule of few over the many.

My Father's Prayer ...and mine

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

This was on the refrigerator door at my Dad's house for many years. At the bottom were the birth and death details of my paternal grandfather's life...1886-1966. I thought he was the author of this poem..but in the last year or so, I discovered that he is NOT the author. If you search google for it...it comes up in many variations...but apparently the author is unknown. So, I am sharing the version my father liked.

My Father's Prayer...and mine.

Lord, thou knowest better than I know myself that I am growing older; and someday will be old.

Keep me from getting talkative, and particularly from the fatal habit of thinking must say something on every subject on every occasion.

Release me from craving to straighten out everybody's affairs.

Make me thoughtful, but not moody, helpful but not bossy. With my vast store of wisdom it seems a pity not to use it all. But thou knowest, Lord, that I want a few friends at the end.

Keep my mind free from the recital of endless details...give me wings to get to the point.

Seal my lips to my many aches and pains....they are increasing and my love of rehearsing them is becoming sweeter as the years go by. I ask for grace enough to listen to the tales of others' pains. Help me to endure them with patience.

Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible for me to be mistaken. Keep me reasonably sweet. I do not want to be a saint...some of them are so hard to live with...but a sour old person is one of the crowning works of the devil.

Help me to extract all possible fun out of life. There are so many funny things around us, and I do not want to miss any of them.

    That is an excellent poem. I try to be patient, but struggle with these and dont know which order is more annoying....those who suffer from the fatal habit of thinking must say something on every subject on every occasion or the endless bowel movement subject or the a sour old person which surely is one of the crowning works of the devil.
I keep reminding myself I will be old-er one day too.
My prayer for myself is ... TO SMILE A TON AND LOVE THE YOUNG.

    I'm going to copy and paste this prayer to a new text document on my laptop, just so I can access it quickly on days when I can feel myself exhibiting some of the same behaviors in this prayer. I am so guilty of many of them. Thanks for sharing. Interesting comments about the original author.

Carpet Dance round two

Monday, February 04, 2013

Well, for such a dirty carpet, I should have known it wouldn't be THAT easy. emoticon Last night I noticed some large spots resurfacing. I pretreated two of them and went on to bed. This morning I was at it again...using a mostly hot water solution this time. It is astonishing how much dirt is coming up (embarrassing to see that much crud in my rug!) At the moment, the carpet is still pretty wet, but the machine won't pick up any more liquid..so I must wait for the dry environment and woodburning stove to dry things out. It looks better and better.

Lesson from all this...I need to DO this more often. I kept putting off professional cleaning for a variety of reasons..too hot (no ac in summer...and right in front of the stove in winter), too cold, too expensive, no time to be home.
I am SURE a professional cleaning SOON would be wise (can't afford it right now), but in the meantime, I will continue to spot clean...AND I think I will keep doing Carpet Dance cleaning more frequently.

DH says we will need to replace this rug when Miss Daisy leaves us..but that could still be some years. Till then, I have my dancing cut out for me! emoticon
