Harley Biker

I have a few friends that ride Harley’s. I love it when I get a good biker joke from any of them via email. This was a good one that I just got today.

A Harley Davidson motorcycle rider is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.

The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’ The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’

The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’

The biker replies, ‘I’m a U.S. . Marine and a Republican.’ The journalist leaves. The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH.

That pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.

Kinda Slap Stick

My all time favorite TV shows is [scrubs]. I remember when it first aired on TV, I wasn’t impressed even one bit with their “slap stick” effects, but after watching a few of the episodes it kinda grew on me and from there I just really enjoyed it when ever I got a chance to watch it. The characters are crazy as hell, but they keep me laughing each and every time I watch it.

Now that the economy is in such turmoil a lot of people have turned to the medical profession and we are seeing a lot of folks wearing the medical scrubs, much like the scrub sets that most of the characters on [scrubs) are sporting. When I was growing up all the doctors were wearing just the regular ordinary and plain white lab coats that are becoming a thing of the past.

I’m so glad to see that these medical uniforms have come a long way. You can find all kinds of medical uniforms, scrubs and the like online.  Liking what you are wearing can make a difference on how your day goes and we want our medical folks in as good of a mood as we can get them in. Right?

Craisins

I have always enjoyed the dried Ocean Spray fruits that they have been pumping out for a good long time now. And I’m so happy that they are continuing to put out new flavors. My newest favorite is the Pomegranate and the Blueberry ones. If you haven’t tried them yet I suggest that you give them a try. The are good and sweet, but a healthy snack that you can eat by the handfuls if you care to.

Blood Dolphins, The Animal Planet

The Animal Planet is doing a wonderful job in bringing attention to the brutality being done to dolphins in many countries with their new show Blood Dolphins. I found this clip on YouTube.com and wanted to share it here. I hope more people watch this show and that it enlightens a lot of good people to the atrocities being done to thousands of dolphins each year.

Going The Extra Mile For Women

It is amazing how they are making estetica wigs for woman that look so much like a persons real hair. More and more woman are losing their hair due to the various types of cancer that require treatment that makes their hair fall out. My mother goes to a hair stylist that has gone the extra mile and added a back room for the ladies who wear wigs, to give them some privacy during their time of need. One day I plan on going their with her and let the owner know just how much I think of her doing this. In my opinion we need more people/businesses that will cater to folks who need a special touch!
