Take Some Risks.

Post 126 - - - - - - Sunday, 28th January, 2007.

Hello my friends ~~ I hope everything is going well for you and that you are finding that life is really worth living. I have enjoyed another pleasant day here today and would love it to continue. It won't, but the respite has been terrific.
Birthday alert. My friend Connie from Connie and Rob is having her birthday on the 29th. So Happy Birthday Connie - - I hope you have a wonderful day. I am sure she would like to get a few hellos from anyone who cares to send one.

I see my brother Peter from HoltiesHouse has been nominated for a Bloggies Award
so pop over and vote for him if you are so inclined. Thanks folks.

What is a risk?

To laugh, is to risk playing the fool.
To weep, is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another, is to risk involvement.
To expose feeling, is to risk exposing our true selves.
To put your ideas, your dreams, before the crowd is to risk loss.
To love, is to risk not being loved in return.
To live, is to risk dying.
To hope, is to risk despair.
To try it all, is to risk failure.
But risk must be taken.
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they simply cannot learn, change, feel,
grow, love, live ........
Chained by their attitudes they are slaves.
"Friends, Life is full of Risks,
Either Take Risks and achieve success or be ready for the stagnant life ......
the choice is yours."
Joke Time. My dear friend Karen sent me this first one. Thanks Karen.
Irish Viagra.

An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask help in reviving her
husband's libido.

"What about trying Viagra?" asks the doctor.

"Not a chance," she said. "He won't even take an aspirin."

"Not aproblem," replied the doctor. "Give him an "Irish Viagra" It's when you drop
the Viagra tablet into his coffee. He won't even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went.
It wasn't a week later that she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to progress.
The poor dear exclaimed, "Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah!! It was horrid, just terrible doctor."

"Really, what happened?"

"Well, I did as you advised and slipped it into his coffee and the effect was almost
immediate. He jumped straight up, with a twinkle in his eye, and with his pants bulging fiercely ! With one swoop of his arm, he sent the cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there, took me passionately on the
tabletop ! It was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare."

"Why so terrible?" asked the doctor. "Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn't good?"

"Twas the best sex I've had in 25 years ! But sure as I'm sitting here, I'll never be able
to show my face in Starbucks again !!"

A husband desparte to end an argument offers to buy his wife a new car, She curtly declines his offer by saying, "That's not quite I had in mind."

Then he offers to buy her a new house, but she quickly rejects again and says, "That's not quite what I had in mind."

Curious, he asks, "What did you have in mind?"
She reports, "I'd like a divorce."
He answers, "I hadn't planned on spending quite that much."

Be Strong, Honey.

A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years.
He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young couple in bed.
He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair, while tying the girl to the bed
he gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom.

While he is there, the husband tells his wife : "Listen, this guy is an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck. If he wants sex, don't resist, don't complain,
do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he'll kill us.
Be strong, Honey, I love you."

To which his wife responds: "He wasn't kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked me if we had any vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom.
Be strong, Honey. I love you too !!"

In future, if Prince Charles decides to re-marry, please someone warn the Pope !!


A lawyer had a jury trial in a very difficult business case. The client who had attended
the trial was out of town when the jury came back with it's decsion, which was for the lawyer and his client.
The lawyer immediately sent a telegram to his client, reading,
"Justice has
triumphed !!"

The client wired back, "Appeal at once !"
