Observations

  • There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and dipshit’s.
  • The closest I ever got to a 4.0 in college was my blood alcohol content.
  • I live in my own little world, but it’s OK. Everyone knows me there.
  • I don’t do drugs. I find I get the same effect just by standing up really fast.
  • I don’t like political jokes. I’ve seen too many get elected.
  • The most precious thing we have is life, yet it has absolutely no trade-in value.
  • If life deals you lemons, make lemonade. If life deals you tomatoes, make Bloody Mary’s……………..
  • Shopping tip: You can get shoes for a buck at bowling alleys.
  • Every day I beat my previous record of consecutive days I’ve stayed alive.
  • No one ever says, “It’s only a game!” when their team’s winning.
  • Marriage changes passion . . . suddenly you’re in bed with a relative.
  • Why is it that most nudists are people you don’t want to see naked?
  • Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled.
  • Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can’t even get into my own pants.
  • I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose fitting clothing.
  • If I HAD any loose fitting clothing, I wouldn’t need the freakin’ class!
  • Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
  • Wouldn’t you know it! Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.

It Can Wait Television Advertisement by the Western Cape Government

Sometimes it Pays to Tell the Truth

Jack decided to go ski-ing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack’s minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could stay the night.

“I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I’m recently widowed,” she explained. “I’m afraid the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house.”

“Don’t worry,” Jack said. “We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we’ll be gone at first light.”

The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of ski-ing. But about nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend. He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, “Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about 9 months ago?”

“Yes, I do.” said Bob

“Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?”

“Well, um, yes,” Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out, “I have to admit that I did.”

“And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?”

Bob’s face turned beet red and he said, “Yeah, look, I’m sorry, buddy. I’m afraid I did. Why do you ask?”

“She just died and left me everything.”

Rice Fields in Japan


If you haven’t ever seen any rice fields or how rice is grown it is pretty interesting because Japan does not have a lot of farm land so they grow rice wherever they can. Here are a couple fields I happened to snap a couple photos of as I was driving by.

Going Solar


More and more businesses, organizations, schools, and people are installing solar panels and why not? Not only do the solar panels produce power by converting light into electricity, but they also provide shade and lower your bills and if there are enough of them, they can even produce a profit. With people looking for alternative energy sources, not only for their vehicles, but also for their homes solar is a great way to go. The sun provides us with enough energy to suit most of our needs.

Fortune Cookie Fortune


I had a fortune cookie that had this fortune in it that stated, “You have a keen sense of humor and bring out the best in others.” I’m not so certain that is an actual fortune as much as it is just a statement. I think I got cheated.

Getting into Heaven


An Angel visited a woman and told her she must give up smoking, drinking and unmarried sex if she wants to get into Heaven. The woman said she would try her best.

The Angel visited the woman a week later to see how she was getting on.

“Not bad” said the woman, “I’ve given up smoking and drinking but then I bent over to look in the freezer, my boyfriend caught sight of my long slender legs in high heels, he pulled up my skirt, pulled my panties to one side and made love to me right then and there.”

“They don’t like that in Heaven”, said the Angel.

The woman replied: “They’re not crazy about it at Costco either!

Patriot Missiles


While stationed at Ali Al Salem air base in Kuwait there were some Patriot Missiles there. Every time Saddam Hussein sent scud missiles south of the 38th parallel something would be sent up that way to take it out. Periodically I would check just to ensure they were still pointing north. If they were I felt everything was going to be A-ok.

Little Italy Bar & Grill in El Cajon California


I don’t typically write a lot of reviews, however in this case I need to give credit where credit is due. I went and ate at the Little Italy Bar & Grill in El Cajon, California for a special occasion and the food was amazing. The quality was great the price was very reasonable and the service was good. When I first got there I asked the waitress what was good on the menu and she said, “everything.” I said, “Don’t tell me everything because some things aren’t going to be good.” Well, she didn’t lie. Everything I ate was delicious. Granted I didn’t try everything on the menu, but I also didn’t leave there hungry. I left with a full stomach of great quality food for a reasonable price. That’s two thumbs up in my book.

Curry House CoCo Ichibanya Irvine, California

ココイチカレー、たまに無性に食べたくなる味。特に海外だと恋しく感じる。
CAには4店舗あるらしく、アーバイン店に行ってみた。
日本に住んでいた外国人にも人気があり、この味を求めて来るお客でいっぱい。
週末のお昼時は行列が出来ていた。
中国系と韓国系のレストランやショップに囲まれたショッピングセンター内にその店舗はあり、駐車場が無料なのがありがたい。

当たり前ですが英語のメニュー。辛さ・ご飯の量・トッピングを選べて比較的に日本とあまり変わらない。店員は地元の学生さんっぽい。
オーダーも英語のみ。でもアメリカにしてはサービスが良く、
注文するとすぐにカレーが運ばれてきたし、お水もすぐにお代わりを聞いてくれた。
でも店員さんを呼ぶあのチャイムがあったら便利なのになぁ〜。

肝心の味は「これよ!これ!」と安定のお味。
量は多いので食べきれず持ち帰れるか聞くと、To-Go Boxを持って来てくれた。
アメリカ式自分でやりなさいのあのお弁当箱だ。
値段はチップ料金が掛かるので日本より少々高く感じた。
