No Speak English!

A beautiful German woman married an American gentleman born in Virginia and they lived happily ever after in his home town.

The poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.

One day, she went to the butcher counter and wanted to buy chicken legs. She didn’t know how to put forward her request, so, in desperation, clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs. Her butcher got the message and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day she needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn’t know how to say it, so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her cleavage. The butcher understood again and gave her some chicken breasts.

On the 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store…

Playing with watercolour

My Life as an Artist (2)

A new BBC campaign has begun entitled ‘Get Creative’.  

This is clearly not a new idea….however, in today’s world where just about everyone is plugged into one form of technology or another, and consequently attention spans fragmented and shortened, maybe it’s a good time to be reminded of the incredible benefits that the creative process in all its many forms brings to our lives.


Of all the mediums available to play and experiment with, I have found watercolour painting to be the most soothing.


Watercolours are easy to carry around.      All that is needed is paper, paint, a couple of brushes and water.


Set up a small table, and PLAY – see what happens.     Don’t worry about being right or wrong…just PLAY.


Wishing one and all a magical hummingbird Monday and week ahead.


A bientôt.

Christians Pay Islam’s Price for Freedom

A pastor eventually helped the 12 year old to a “medical clinic, where she was treated for two weeks, while her father began organizing area Muslims to kill her.”

“The intention was to torch all the churches with us inside them” and thus “burn us alive.” — A nun in Niger.


Stereotyping Blondes

James' Funnies

A young ventriloquist touring the clubs is doing a show in a small town in Arkansas. With his dummy on his knee, the goes through his usual dumb blonde jokes when a blonde woman in the 2nd row stands on her chair and shouts: “I’ve heard enough of your stupid blond jokes!
“What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What does the color of a person’s hair have to do with her worth as a human being?
“It’s guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community, and from reaching our full potential as a person because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against, not only blondes but women in general. And you do it all in the name of humor”.
Quite taken aback, the embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize.
But the blonde yells again, “You stay…

Time to Choose is Upon Us

Beyond the Cusp

Most of us who grace these postings and pages already support Israel, and for that we should all be glad. But what is coming will require a far more difficult choice, the choice where supporting Israel interferes with one’s life and potentially livelihood as supporters of Israel become pariahs in their own communities. Thankfully there will be exceptions to this rule in places outside of Israel. The American Heartlands, which area is referred to as flyover country by the political elites, as to who gave them that title it remains unknown and suspected it was an example of self-aggrandizement of the most grave and dishonest kind. Thus far supporting Israel resolutely and actively defending her from fallacious slanders often used as facts has cost us at most a couple of acquaintances who proved unacceptable by their own hatreds for Israel and possibly banned us from the watercooler conversations where the…

It was the summer of 2001.  Bill Clinton had left the Oval Office which allowed him more time to chase skirts and wife Hillary was ensconced in the U. S. Senate.  On a beach in Florida, the barefoot former president hit a hard object in the sand with his foot.  He reached down to unearth what appeared to be a lamp of the shape and style which Aladdin discovered to summon his genie.

Clinton thought a moment, “Could this be an authentic genie’s lamp – and would it work?”  So he rubbed the lamp and sure as shooting a stream of smoke emerged which turned into a real live genie.  Clinton was thrilled at his good fortune and for a fleeting moment the thought of 72 virgins flew through his mind.

The genie introduced himself as the “Real Moustaffah” and said, “Mr. President, as you have released me from the…

Just Another Race Riot

PA Pundits - International

caruba_alan20080111By Alan Caruba ~

When you’ve lived over seven decades in America, the news about another race riot is really not news. It’s just another race riot.

AA - Baltimore LootingThe latest is Baltimore and the theme for this one is police violence against an unarmed black youth. This was the theme of the Ferguson, Missouri riots last year and has been a fairly common theme since the arrival of the new century fifteen years ago. Such events included riots in Cincinnati in 2001, the Oakland riots in 2009, and the two most recent.

A December 2014 article in Real Clear Politics by Jack Kelly put the statistics in perspective. “Young black males are 21 times more likely to be shot dead by police than are young white males, Pro Publica said. But because more than two-thirds of police officers are white and blacks commit about half of violent crimes, it stands to…
