The Day Pure Evil Visited Newtown, Connecticut

The love, thoughts and prayers of many families in Great Britian are with all those families in the United States of America who have suffered the most catastrophic act of pure evil inflicted upon the country in recent history.

To those citizens of Newtown, Connecticut, and especially to the families of those directly involved at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we unreservedly offer you our deepest sympathy. We trust our Heavenly Father will give each and every one of you the courage and strength to bear your incomprehensible grief with stoicism.  Also, with determination to ensure that no such similar act of barbarism should ever be inflicted upon another family in USA, or any other country in the world.

We, in the United Kingdom, suffered an almost identical act of mass murder of primary school children and their teachers in the Dunblane, Scotland, massacre of March 13th. 1996, so we can fully empathize with your grief and sorrow.

May God bless you and comfort you today and always.

Harry's flat was untidy & dirty, so he called in a domestic cleaner. Since he had to go to work the next day, he told the cleaner;

'I'll leave the key under the mat. Give my flat a good tidy up & a clean, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a cheque.

Oh, by the way don't worry about my dog Spike. He won't bother you."

But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!


When the cleaner arrived at Harry's apartment, she discovered the biggest, meanest looking dog she has ever seen. But, just as he had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the cleaner go about her work.The parrot, however, drove her nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling.

Finally the cleaner couldn't contain herself any longer and yelled, 'Shut up, you stupid, frickin ugly bird!'

To which the parrot replied, 'Get her Spike!'

See - WOMEN just don't listen!

(Apologies to my feminist friends who may deem this little piece of humour sexist. It is simply a joke. It's Christmas, be happy & enjoy it.)

The Cardiologist & The Motor Mechanic

A motorcycle mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a BMW M3 when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.

The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage,

"Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"

The cardiologist, a bit surprised walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine.

I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in,

and when I finished, it worked just like new.

So how is it that I make £24,000 a year and you make £1.7million when you and I are basically doing the same work?"

The cardiologist paused, leaned over and then whispered to the mechanic;

"Try doing it with the engine running”.
