“D D D D Doctor, you’ve g g g g got to Help m m m me, I’ll dddo anyth th th th thing.”
The doctor gives him a thorough physical examination, and sure enough discovers the problem….
“Your genitals are massive, and it’s causing a great strain on your vocal chords, which is creating the stutter. I can, if you’d like, shorten your penis and relieve the great tension on your larynx. The effects will be instantaneous, and we can operate today.”
“D D D D Do it!”
So they prep for surgery and very quickly the operation is performed. It’s complete success, and the man leaves for home delighted to be cured. But that night his wife finds out what he did. She is very unhappy and urges him to reverse the surgery.
The next day, the man returns to the doctor’s surgery.
“Hello doctor, and thanks for seeing me again. I’m completely cured and most of all I’m very grateful, but unfortunately my wife is not, I want to reverse the surgery.”
The doctor replies: “N N N N N N No Refunds!”
‘Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind and spirit – the realisation that everything we do, think, feel and believe has an effect on our state of well-being’. Greg Anderson.
watercolour/gouache – I painted this overlooking the Usk Valley Wales where the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains meet. Through Mother Nature we see how all of life is interconnected. What is Holistic wellbeing?
Holistic wellbeing is characterised by the treatment of the whole person. It is to look at the self from a whole (holistic) perspective and to understand the mind, body, spirit connection.
To change one fraction of a painting, – changes the whole painting. This is true for we humans….to change one small part of ourselves, (positively or negatively), changes the whole.

Turkey is pulling what should be named the Mavi Marmara Maneuver once again. Allow us to give a quick refresher on the Mavi Marmara Affair. The Mavi Marmara was the lead ship in what began as just another break the Israeli Naval blockade on Hamas in Gaza. This one was organized by Turkey in cooperation with the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, actually a terrorist group. The entire convoy was carrying relief in the form of past dated medicines and unusable foodstuffs. When the relief was delivered to Gaza, Hamas gave it the treatment it deserved and simply burned everything. The Mavi Marmara was the only ship which attempted to dock at Gaza and was intercepted by Israeli forces who boarded her armed with paintball guns shooting pepper spray. The Israeli forces were set upon by the IHH terrorists armed with clubs, baseball bats, iron rods, knives, machetes and other weapons…

Ten members of an Islamic State jihadi cell have been sentenced to combined prison terms of nearly 100 years for a plot to bomb landmarks and behead infidels in Barcelona.
The cell, composed of five Moroccans, four Spaniards and a Brazilian, was separate to and independent of the jihadi group that killed 16 people in Barcelona and nearby Cambrils in August 2017.
The case shows that Spain continues to be a prime target for jihadis, many of whom are striving to reconquer al-Andalus, the Arabic name given to those parts of Spain, Portugal and France occupied by Muslim conquerors (also known as the Moors) from 711 to 1492. Many jihadis believe that territories Muslims lost during the Christian Reconquest of Spain still belong to the realm of Islam, and that Sharia law requires them to re-establish Muslim rule there.
The court heard how the jihadi cell — called “Islamic Fraternity, Group for Preaching Jihad” — was created in 2014 at a mosque in Terrassa, a city located 30 kilometers from Barcelona, with the objective of creating a global Islamic Caliphate.
While the number of Salafists in Germany reaches a record high and machete-wielding gangs riot on the country’s streets, the establishment media not only covers up the fallout from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open door migration policy, but continues to paint a false picture of the country’s current state.
“Cool Germany,” a cover story on Britain’s magazine, The Economist, claims that, “Germany is becoming more open and diverse” and “[m]any of the country’s defining traits” including “its ethnic and cultural homogeneity, conformist and conservative society” are “suddenly in flux.”
The Economist attributes this change to Chancellor Merkel’s migrant policy. “The biggest change comes from Mrs. Merkel’s “open door” policy towards refugees, which brought in 1.2 million new migrants in 2015-16. The magazine celebrates the sudden outburst of diversity as its transforms “once-homogeneous Germany” into a “melting-pot” and claims that the “patriarchal culture has become more gender-balanced.”
The Economist also advocates the urgent necessity of the open-door policy for refugees, and alleges that the “flow of newcomers to Germany” will “cushion the demographic crunch.”
Just as the first casualty of war is truth, so, too, the first casualty of hyper-partisan politics is civil liberties.
Many traditional civil libertarians have allowed their strong anti-Trump sentiments to erase their long-standing commitment to neutral civil liberties. They are now so desperate to get Trump that they are prepared to compromise the most basic due process rights. They forget the lesson of history that such compromises made against one’s enemy are often used as precedents against one’s friends. As Robert Bolt put it in the play and movie A Man for all Seasons:
Roper: So now you would give the Devil benefit of Law!
Thomas Moore: Yes, what would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
Roper: I’d cut down every law in England to do that?
Thomas Moore: And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast — man’s laws, not God’s — and if you cut them down — and you’re just the man to do it — d’you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.
