Ask not, what can my country do for me.
But Rather, what can I do for my country.

EXERCISE FOR THE OLDER PEOPLE :

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.


Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.


Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.


After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

Lets Talk about said...
My thought for the day is how do I stop my wife calling me a Bastard. I was talking to her yesterday and this is how the conversation went. "Hey Jan did you hear on the news about Ruislip Lido" (Grumpy Jan first thing in the morning) "No what about Ruislip Lido"? "Well apparently some dope has got rid of a pet Alligator in the lake." WHAT!" "Yeah the authorities believe it was probably getting too big so the owner decided to get rid of it." BLOODY THICK IDIOT! WHAT ON EARTH IS THE WORLD COMING TO"? "Well Jan you have to give that person some credit, it was probably a bloke and he could have just killed it. Instead he gave the animal it's freedom." "What's the matter with you? how big is this thing anyway"? "They think it was put in there while it was still small, but with so many fish in the lake and no competition for the food it has now grown large" "OH! THE STUPID! STUPID! IDIOT!" "What are you getting all upset about love? I really can't see too much harm in it." "Oh don't be such a fool what about the children going in the water"? "Jan if they come to any harm it is their own fault there are notices up every where saying no paddling or swimming. She was then half way through giving me a tirade of abuse, when I interjected with "GOTCHA" I will leave it there, but my feelings was hurt when amongst other things she called me a bastard. How can I stop her doing that.?

YOU WANT ME TO DO THAT NOW DO YOU ??/

Chris Turley nee Davis said...

Well here I go again something went wrong with my comment it only printed the last line.
I said I knew who your Father was since he was mine too.
But there are times.you cause some of us to be at a loss for words,so bastard fits the reply very well.
watch out you dont want me to tell the Cuckooites about the trouble you had with the razor while you was over here now do you,that would spoil your image.

jim davis said...

Chris of course I remember the razor episode, but you are getting confused in your old age. That was Sid not me you silly billy.

CHRIS TURLEY NEE DAVIS said...

NO NO THAT WAS NOT OUR LITTLE BROTHER SID,THAT POOR KID ALWAYS GOT BLAMED FOR YOUR DOINGS.REMEBER THE SHEET EPISODE.
AND WHERE IS YVONNE.SHE IS ABOUT THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN KEEP A HEAD OF YOU,

yvonneh said...

I am here Chris, quietly watching your altercation with interest. Far be it for me to come between brother and sister, as, if you were anything like Brian and me, we were always argueing, but we loved each other faults and all. I think it must be the era they were born in, when the male species thinks that we female species are there to serve them. Jim is one of the worst however, but I am sure you dont allow him to get the better of you. Even his April fool jokes are chauvenistic and arrogant. I just feel sorry for his poor wife and if I swore I would probably say the same thing,
He reminds me of a rash, red and irritating and gets everywhere. Do tell about the sheet and the razor.
Sue I loved the joke, more please.

jim davis said...

You wont get round me by saying all those nice things Yvonne. But thank you for trying.

Ted baker said...

Hi there can we knock out the sweaying. I think from now on i wont, look into the chat room again.sad to say i like the joke about the potato.

jim davis said...

Ted don't take this wrong but we do not allow heavy swearing on this site. Some minor words used in context is allowed,and up till now there has been no complaints.You are entitled to your opinion and I for one welcome it. But you do have the answer, skip over anything you don't like. Just as I do when you talk about your religious beliefs. I believe in God and Jesus but I do not believe in preaching to others, I have no right to do that. If you think you do, that is Ok by me. I will just skip over your comments on that subject as I do now. Some folk might like to read your comments on religion, and if they do that is fine.The point I am making is live and let live.

My thought for the day is....er, er, um??
Tsk!....I forgot what it was again

yvonneh said...

Was it, I shall be real nice today,
particularly to Yvonne. Who did you say you were?

JohnB said...

I'm sure that's what it was Yvonne,
when I get a minute I'll ask him.

bob stevens said...

God put me on this earth to do a number of things, right at this minute I'm so far behind I shall never die.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life, don't let anyone louse it up.

yvonneh said...

Hi all, I was in the xray dept at the local hospital, chatting to the women next to me, she was waiting for her husband and I was waiting for mine, when she mentioned she came from Southall, I was amazed and told her where I was from, she then told me that her husband was Peter Garrod from 18 Lawrie road. I told her about us and gave her my phone number in case Peter wanted to get in touch.
I dont know if any of you remember the family, his wife said he talked about the estate a lot and she recognised the name Corsham and Clancy, apparently Peter and his wife lived in Laurie road for some years. They now live in Horsham but do not have a computer. If he rings me I can give him any messages you wish. I cant believe where we keep turning up.

Jim I remember going to the Dominiom many years ago 1940/50 it was the best place to see the new films on release fom the Pinewood Studio,s and the USA by the time they reached the the Playhouse and Granada to us they were old ,but if it was a good film went and saw it again.

jim davis said...

Hello Grace I don't know if we are talking about the same place or not. It is now a theatre and We Will Rock You is a live musical. Maybe it has changed over the years.

41 YEARS AGO.
On the 23rd April 1968: Decimal coins reach the high street
The first decimal coins are making their way into purses throughout Britain, in preparation for replacing the current system of pounds, shillings and pence by 1971.
The five new pence and ten new pence coins operate alongside the shilling and the florin, and will have the same value. They are also the same size and weight.

They caused initial confusion to shoppers, many of whom refused to take them.

There was further misunderstanding over the value of a penny. Many thought the five new penny coin was worth five old pence - when it is in fact worth a shilling, or 12 old pence.
The next coin to be introduced was the 50p which replaced the ten shilling note.

Will there be more confusion if Britain adopts the EURO!!!????

Hi all,looking threw the comments on TFTD,a sad moment came to mind,in my class in the seniors were two guys,one a John Snow,who lived on the estate i don't know where,the other a Alan Collet,who i beleive lived at the top of cuckoo hill.Anyway , one or the other had a motorbike and one weekend they were out on this bike had this terrible accident and were both killed.Their double funeral passed the school and classes were aloud to go and line the pavement to pay our respect,do any of you remember that very sad day,would have been about 1955/56

jim davis said...

Yes Phil! I remember them both, Although. they were a couple of years younger than me they were a part of our group that went up the Seagull etc. Allan Collett lived in Lile Crescent, a couple of doors up from Mick Everest on the edge of the green where the Oak tree is or was. John Snow lived on the Cuckoo Ave' about the place where those houses were bombed during the war. I asked Ken Bunting recently why I didn't go to his wedding, and he said because you went to Allan and John's funeral. So if you want to know the date of that Ken will know.
