Things to Do/Get


Okay, i was going to recode due to some features that were missing, (which can easily be found on, but while doing that, i also decided to restructure the site abit, to make it look more personal (and less blog-like?)

So anyways, i was going to do it (over 24 hours ago), but instead of doing that, i went surfing the web and found this >>. So, should i buy it or not? But then again, it’s good for those addicted to transformers?

Pricing: 8GB for $19.49 (USD and Free Shipping (to where?))
Unfortunately, the supplier’s website doesn’t load the product page…

Thoughts to Ponder

  • Do not eat natural foods. I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
  • Gardening Rule: When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
  • The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
  • Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
  • There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.
  • An unbreakable toy is useful for breaking other toys.
  • If quitters never win and winners never quit, then who is the fool who said, "Quit while you’re ahead?"
  • Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
  • The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
  • Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won’t bother you for weeks.
  • Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
  • Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days, no one talks about seeing UFO’s like they used to?
  • Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
  • All of us could take a lesson from the weather; it pays no attention to criticism.
  • Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200 and a substantial tax cut save you 30 cents?
  • In the 60’s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
  • How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

21st Birthdays

A boy from Duluth, Minnesota named Lars had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seem that his father, grandfather and great grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21st birthdays, to the boat club across the lake for their first legal drink.

So when Lars’ 21st came around, he and his pal Sven took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Lars stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned. Sven managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Lars went to see his grandmother. "Grandma," he asked, "it’s my 21st birthday, so why can’t I walk across the lake like my father, his father, and his father before him?"

Granny looked into Lars’ eyes and said, "Because your father, grandfather and great-grandfather were born in January. You were born in July.

Instead of a Nursing Home

There will be no nursing home in my future……..
When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for:

  1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.
  2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service ( which means I can have breakfast in bed every day of the week).
  3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.
  4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.
  5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
  6. I will get to meet new people every 7or 14 days.
  7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience.
  8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don’t even have to ask for them.
  9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare. If you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go? Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don’t look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.
