A Convergence of Celebrations!

Friday, February 12, 2010

Well, the wait is over and the Vancouver Olympics count down clock shows that today is the day. In 30 minutes the opening ceremonies will be commencing. Cue the music!

On Sunday people will celebrate St. Valentine's Day and already at our office, the office administrator received beautiful roses, carnations, orchids and some local blossoms I haven't seen before in an arrangement. The flowers were sent by a loving sister! Aaah, how nice.
That reminds me, it is not a celebration for sweethearts only. Who do you love? Can you phone them and tell them? Open the communication lines.

On Sunday it is Chinese New Year's Day and around here, there is a huge Chinese population (the oldest China Town in Canada) and we have been greeting each other with "Kung Hey Fat Choy!" and they say something festive back. A tradition is to hand out red envelopes with money inside. Woo hoo! How's that for wishing prosperity?

On Monday, my southern neighbours will be celebrating President's Day. Does that mean you get a long weekend??? Happy President's Day to each of you!

Celebrate if you choose to but keep an eye on those sneaky calories~

Almost A Palindrome

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled "u @ 50" by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.

So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it..

Another Pearly Gate Story

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now, but our computer's down.
You will have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can't go back as priests. What'll it be?"

The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an an eagle, soaring above the Rocky Mountains ."
"So be it," says St. Peter, and off flies the first priest.

The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count' St. Peter?"
"No I told you the computer's down, There's no way we an keep track of what you are doing."
"In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud."
"So be it" says St. Peter, and the second priest disappears.

A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them? he asks.
"The first one should be easy," says St. Peter, "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult."
"Why?" asks the Lord.
"He's on a snow tire, somewhere in Alberta."

Will Rogers' Wisdom

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Don't squat with your spurs on.

Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither one works.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

There are three kinds of men. The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him...

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

When you are dissatisfied and want to be a youth again, think of Algebra.

One must wait until evening to see how splended the day has been.

Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've travelled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

You know you are getting old when everything either dried up or leaks.

If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.

Hope your weekend is happy... and remember, growing old is better than the other alternative...

    Who would have thought such simple statements provide such a profound wisdom.

    You are awesome. Your photo is lovely.Love Will Rogers. I had a distant cousin in Oklahoma,who tried to prove that our family was related because of the last name,my maiden name. Also, that was my Uncle's name. She could never find a link, but I can understand her fascination with Will Rogers. Who wouldn't want to claim a kinship with such a witty,entertaining man? Thanks for reminding me that I am not a distant relative of that cowboy, but I totally enjoy his wit and wisdom.

Do you like Earl Gray Tea? I enjoy English Breakfast the most. Can't find much love for green tea. emoticon emoticon

A Joke: Don't Mix Up Your Medication

Friday, February 05, 2010

Ladies, what happens if you confuse your Valium with your birth control pills?

You end up with 12 kids, but you don't really care.
