And Then, That’s It For That One….

…..and the start of the next one wot has been designated as number 2015 so shall we have a lill bida Idi? Read on then.

Going out tonight? You’d better check the weather then. 

Out or in, if you’re wont to do that standing in a circle, holding hands and singing thingy at the stroke of midnight, assuming there’s more than one of you, may I suggest, in the interests of accuracy, you dive over to this excellent site to discover how a truly professional time check should be presented. Oh, and it may kick-off the new year with you smiling. If so, the trick thereafter is to maintain that smile through thick and thin.

You’ll need that smile as I feel quietly confident in predicting that, courtesy to those who oversee us, there’ll be a never-ending torrent of thick and thin stuff heading our way again through the year to come.

On the up side, with the end of what those advertising fellows like to call the festive season, TV has now swung joyously into  summer holiday mode thus giving us a timely reminder to start planning that summer get away….

What the hay, illegitimi non carborundum my friends.

Before the internet and phone networks get clogged up, we here at Altzheimers UK want to wish you a very happy Easter and all the best for 2003.

Please excuse this message being sent early, as I suffer with premature congratulation.

Love it and hope you've forgotten it by next year so's I can use it!
All best wishes to you and yours for next year - whatever number you wish to give it.

I'll leave you with this old Bathtub Test;

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how they determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.'

'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor. 'A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup. Right?'
'No' said the Director, 'A normal person would pull the plug. Would you like a bed near the window?'

Good wishes right back at ya Mac!

I recommend the Darth Meerkat blog to a guy with your outstanding sense of humour:


There are some pearlers in there, but a shame that the blogger doesn't post very often. I'll leave you with this very old one:

Two patients escape from a secure mental institution. The alarm has been raised and the men in white coats are at their heels. The two patients come up to the high perimeter wall and scramble up, but there is a 50 foot drop on the other side.

"Wait - I have an idea" says one of the patients. "I have this torch. I will point it at the ground, and you climb down the beam. Then I'll throw the torch down and you point it at me so that I can climb down".

"Don't be so stupid" replies the other. "That's just silly. Besides, you'll wait until I'm halfway down then switch the torch off".

Love it again and it's now linked and on my daily list. Thanks! It's always good to know where to steal a smile.
