|No-one believes seniors . . . everyone thinks they are senile.|
An Elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary.
The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighbourhood after they retired.
Holding hands they walked back to their old school.
It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Andy had carved 'I love you, Sally.'
On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armoured car, practically landing at their feet Sally quickly picked it up,
but not sure what to do with it, they took it home.
There, she counted the money -- fifty thousand dollars. Andy said, 'We've got to give it back.'
Sally said, 'Finders keepers.' She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.
The next day, two police men were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on the door.
'Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armoured car yesterday?'
Sally said, 'No.'
Andy said, 'She's lying. She hid it up in the attic.'
Sally said, 'Don't believe him, he's getting senile.'
The police turn to Andy and began to question him.
One says: 'Tell us the story from the beginning'
Andy said, 'Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday . . '
The first policeman turns to his partner and says, 'We're outta here.'

For as young children ,we once played by a stream
Now forever Brent river shall run thru our dreams
Playing under her bridges , and sheltering from rain
Hearing whistling above, a puffing Push n' Pull train
A girl skipping, slips splashing, from a stepping stone
Her big brother has been fishing, for golf balls to own
Nigh quaint colourful caravans, black stallions do stand
As an old gypsy woman, makes paper flowers, by hand
Set high on the green hill is Charlie Chaplin's old school
From it's gray clock tower perch, our Cuckoo bird calls
Hastily gathering Horse Chestnuts, from under the trees
A boy stuffs them in pockets, they hang full to his knees
In Ye Olde White Hart, men throw darts and drink beer
While silently in Churchfield, weeping willows do sway
Children play in a cave, where Dick Turpin did hide
Neath Hanwell's viaduct arches, our Brent does glide
Flowing forth to the
The Church clock chimes four, it is time we were home
From a top window, of a number 55 bus, we can see
Some lads in Pete's Café, drinking nice cups o' tea.
Heaven is Where:
The Police are British, the Chefs are Italian, the Mechanics are German, the Lovers are French and it's all organized by the Swiss.
Hell is Where:
The Police are German, the Chefs are British, the Mechanics are French, the Lovers are Swiss and it's all organized by the Italians.

Please take the time to watch this ,it sends a powerful message.If it doesn,t move you nothing will.
In July 2006, a short 3-minute movie was launched on the Internet called
The Dash. Since then, over 40 million people from around the world have
watched it; and over 20,000 a day continue to watch it as a result of people
passing it along.
The movie has been more successful than anyone could have ever imagine.
More importantly, however, it has inspired many, many people to
reflect on their lives and ask that all important question, 'Are my priorities
where they should be?'
I hope you enjoy this movie and share it with those who are close to

From The Queen's Royal Lancers Website:
Goodbye to my England , So long my old friend
Your days are numbered, being brought to an end
To be Scottish, Irish or Welsh that's fine
But don't say you're English, that's way out of line.
The French and the Germans may call themselves such
So may Norwegians, the Swedes and the Dutch
You can say you are Russian or maybe a Dane
But don't say you're English ever again.
At Broadcasting House the word is taboo
In Brussels it's scrapped, in Parliament too
Even schools are affected, staff do as they're told
They must not teach children about England of old.
Writers like Shakespeare, Milton and Shaw
The pupils don't learn about them anymore
How about Agincourt, Hastings , Arnhem or Mons ?
When England lost hosts of her very brave sons.
We are not Europeans, how can we be?
Europe is miles away over the sea
We're the English from England , let's all be proud
Stand up and be counted - Shout it out loud !
Let's tell our Government and Brussels too
We're proud of our heritage and the Red, White and Blue
Fly the flag of Saint George or the Union Jack
Let the world know - WE WANT OUR ENGLAND BACK !!!!

Just a update on the Reunion planned for September.Interest is very high for this event and we expect a quick sell out.As I have mentioned to you our mailing list has more than doubled since the last Reunion and our website is receiving as many as 300 visitors a day.We will be sending out the invitation registration forms by this weekend and we urge you to send them back as soon as possible to avoid disappointment ,we have room for only 120 attendees.One minor change to the previous notice the fee has changed to £8.00 each person after booking the hall we found out the price had gone up by £100.00 sorry about that but this is still a great value as this price just covers the cost of the buffet.Look for you registration this week and be sure to act right away if you want to attend this great Cuckooite get together.
I will keep you all updated to any changes .
Have a great week Tommy
