When I decided to write a blog, it was my intention to write about something that held my interest. One day It could be a rant about the sad state of the government, in our fair province, another could be on the administration of our health care in Alberta. Somewhere in the mix, there might jut be a nice piece on how well one is treated once they get past the bureaucratic nonsense that holds back medical treatment. My point is that almost anything goes, other than ultra rude or libellous writing. Humour is also uppermost in my mind as I write.
First of all today, I offer a series of some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever run across. It consists of a number of pictures, often duplicated by different photographers, all taken at National and State parks in the United States west and southwest. I love the areas shown, and have been to most of them, and I am also jealous of the guy who took the images. He/she is a far better photographer than I am! If you have been there on a driving trip, I am sure you will know what I mean. If you haven’t, you owe it to your self to look into some of the most beautiful images ever taken on the Colorado Plateau. Be sure to also look at the right sidebar for additional parks. Take a look: National parks
The second video is one about someone who has a serious problem of finding employment after parking the boat he was in charge of. Take a look: Park
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Nobody understands anyone 18, including those who are 18.
Tired of constantly being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife, with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed. A ‘friend of a friend’ put him in touch with a nefarious, dark-side underworld figure who went by the name of ‘Artie.’
Artie explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out of a spouse was $10,000.
The husband said he was willing to pay that amount but that he wouldn’t have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife’s insurance money.
Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened his wallet, displaying the single dollar coin that rested inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.
A few days later, Artie followed the man’s wife to the local Costco Warehouse. There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene.
Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind, ol’ Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well. However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security cameras and observed by the shop’s security guard, who immediately called the police.
Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the premises. Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband who was also quickly arrested.
The next day in the newspaper, the headline declared: ‘ARTIE CHOKES 2 for $1.00 @ Costco
The Department of Defense briefed the President this morning. They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq.
To everyone’s surprise, he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself and asked, ‘Just how many is a Brazilian?’
This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of billion or trillion either.
