The Table

I think we are so lucky to have two Thanks givings to celebrate on the North American Continent.
To prepare a table as beautiful as some of these women have done, is in itself, a feast to the eyes.
People are blessed with imagination and enriched by color and self expression.

If every home was given daily thanks, the way we do on Thanks giving Day, then
every home would be a blessing to come home to.

A home is a cherished sacred place and not just real estate the way it is being treated today.
This is where people dig in and raise families, create stability and make memories.

Its not a place to be trashed by banks and lawyers and we as a nation, continent of people, must object to the creation of empty homes towns and cities because of some corporations counting dollars somewhere, not caring about the value of lives for whom this was all created for and which they are destroying.
This continent is about building, not foreclosing.

Especially during these hard times, an act of kindness goes a long way.

When you walk the road with an open heart,
no evil can touch you.
Your heart, is the Thanksgiving table
enriched by color, expressing the love
you want shared with the world.

Have a great Day!

Some awful Jokes.

A Greek and an Italian

A Greek and Italian were sitting in a Starbuck's one day discussing who had the superior culture. Over triple lattes the Greek guy says, "Well, we have the Parthenon." Arching his eyebrows, the Italian replies, "We have the Coliseum." The Greek retorts, "We Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics." The Italian, nodding agreement, says, "But we built the Roman Empire." And so on and so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says, "We invented sex!" The Italian replies, "That is true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women!"


Migrating to Australia

A Chinese man decides to retire and move to Australia after 50 years of living in Shanghai.

He bought a small piece of land . A few days after moving in, the friendly Aussie neighbor decides to go across and welcome the new guy to the region. He goes next door but on his way up the drive-way he sees the Chinese man running around his front yard chasing about 10 hens.
Not wanting to interrupt these 'Chinese customs', he decides to put the welcome on hold for the day.

The next day, he decides to try again, but just as he is about to knock on the front door, he looks through the window and sees the Chinese man urinate into a glass and then drink it. Not wanting to interrupt another 'Chinese custom', he decides to put the welcome on hold for yet another day.

A day later he decides to give it one last go, but on his way next door, he sees the Chinese man leading a bull down the driveway,...pause, ....and then put his left ear next to the bull's butt.

The Aussie bloke can't handle this, so he goes up to the Chinese man and says, 'Jeez Mate, what the hell is it with your Chinese customs?
I come over to welcome you to the neighborhood, and see you running around the yard after hens.The next day you are pissing in a glass and drinking it, and then today you have your head so close to that bull's butt, it could just about shit on you.'

The Chinese man is very taken back and says, 'Sorry sir, you no understand, these no ... Chinese customs I doing, these Australian Customs.
'What do you mean mate', says the Aussie, 'Those aren't Australian customs.'
'Yes they are; man at travel agent tell me', replied the Chinese man, 'He say to become a true Australian, I must learn chicks,
....get piss drunk, and....listen to bull-shit'!
