August 2007


Just read this article in the the Financial Gleaner today…..An Italian Mayor is offering the people in his small town of Varallo in north Italy, population of 7500, Euro50.00 (US $67), to reach their ideal weight and Euro200 (US$268)  if it is kept off for 5 mths a further Euro500.00 (US$670)  if they keep it off for 1 year!!!…Bwoy lose weight and make money!! I am sure that would work for me….The USA should really look at adopting that as their population is seriously overweight…wont bother to mention JA …we caan afford it!

Can’t find the Financail Gleaner link but found another article referring to the story….Read the article HERE

I thought this one was too funny not to share…..

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

My wife asks, “Do you know her?”

“Yes,” I sighed, “She’s my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn’t been sober since.”

“My God!” says my wife, “Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long”?

I bet that was not what the hubby was thinking….. 🙂

Forecasters had predicted a very active hurricane season for 2007. Thankfully we are into August and nothing yet (for JA anyway), but then again August and early September is usually the busiest time….Which reminds me I should do the regular stocking up of particular items so that if and when the hurricane approaches I wont get caught in the mad rush at the supermarkets….Anyway there is one called Dean, who is seemingly approaching and seems to have us right in its path for late Saturday into Sunday(courtesy of the weather channel)….but we know how these systems are and all that might change…Hopefully it will, as i plan to be off the island again next Thursday to head back to FL for 10 days (This includes a disney trip with the kids….can u belive in my 40 years I have not been there either)…..and usually after we get a hurricane it heads right into Miami…..so Mr. Dean listen up…DONT MESS UP MI PLANS!!!!!! I am asking nicely

Hey, Just dropping a short note…..havent been able to maintain the blog for a while…..took a short trip to FLL to leave my son with my bro for the rest of his summer holidays, plus monitoring two desks at work so…that leaves little or no time for myself…..

I am looking forward to the Debate on Saturday between Portia and Bruce…The editorial cartoon in the Observer today is hilarious….Although i firmly belive that it will have no impact those who have made up their mind which way they are voting….however i guess the race is close enough that the undecided out there can make a big difference….

Anyway off to catch up on all the blogs…..hopefully i will post again this w/e…..
