All Is Well

Hello,Hello-I'm well and I hope you're all also in the well!!

LOL - no reason to use that fractured English quote, except that I saw a new notice on the garbage room door today, which said' Please do not leave cartoons on the garbage room floor' and, I was grinning away imagining people leaving Tom, Jerry, Popeye, etc on the floor...Strange, what funny ideas the mind gets at times. But then, that's me- when I'm in an off mood, it's difficult for me to make myself laugh...and,when I'm in a light mood, I can be hilarious..for myself as well as others round me.
On a slightly different note, the last two weeks have honestly not been the best, for some of my friends- bad news here, there, everywhere- and, that's why I was in no mood to write posts - but then, everyone's resilient-and, I'm sure everyone will come out of their difficult period sooner rather than's saying a silent prayer for them!
I love reading newspapers and news tidbits- 

Some news articles had me smiling, the last few days, even in that down phase.

There was this one about an Aussie who was kept in jail for 24 days and then deported-his crime? He showed his middle finger from his car to an officer in the next car, in a fit of road rage. And, he did not apologize immediately.  So, he got his just desserts in the desert.

Then, there's this article about a judge in a neighbouring country who said at a seminar that a man is allowed to slap his wife if she is extravagant in shopping-an example given was of giving 1200 bucks of local currency to a wife, and she spent 900 on a local dress. So, to show her his displeasure, he can slap her. The last lines said that men have been oppressed enough in these domestic violence accusations and are unable to speak out, so women also deserve to take part of the 'blame'. 

And, there's this article on South Korean scientists who have engineered four beagles that glow red using cloning techniques...they're named 'Ruppy'- combo of ruby and puppy.

You can see these news articles if you google the key words-I'm too tired,it being mid-week, to find out where I stored the links...LOL..maybe if I feel magnanimous tomorrow,I'll add the links...that is, if any of you is too lazy to search for the links...LOL. 
Joke for the day:

Observation on restrooms:
Men use restrooms for purely biological reasons.

Women use restrooms as social lounges.

Men in restrooms will never speak a word to each other.

Women who've never met will leave a restroom giggling together like old friends.

And never in the history of the world has a man excused himself from a restaurant table by saying, 'Hey, Tom, I was just about to take a leak. Do you want to join me?

Till next time, keep smiling.
