Untimely Deaths.

Post  788  ~~ Sunday, 24th  June,  2012.
Hello all my friends ~~ I hope the world is treating you right and that life is good for you.
I am doing really well and feeling good. I doubt I have gained any more weight, judging by the watch and ring I wear. Both are slipping as before. So I am resigned to that fact that
40 or 50 is to be my weight. I hope my doctor agrees next Friday - I think he has to.
Well I have been telling everyone how well I am getting along with the new blogger, I had
nearly finished a post, which disappeared on me, in spite of saving all the time. Is there a limit on timing I wonder, I had to check the soup I am making and have some lunch etc and
came back to a blank page.  Oh. well - we do learn from these mishaps -don't take time to eat in the middle of a post.  I had posted some jokes too, so see how we go from here.
 
My good friend Sherrill sent me this interesting one. Thank you, Sherrill.
And Thank you for remembering my birthday and for the lovely card.



DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS?

 
I SURE DIDN'T TILL NOW

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this.....

Very interesting, read until the end......

It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):

'Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man sow,
that shall he also reap.

Here are some men and women
 who mocked God :

John Lennon (Singer):

Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

'Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about
that. I am certain.

Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him' (1966). 
 
Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times. 

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ): 
During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency. 
Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died.
Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet): 
During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ), 
while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: 'God, that's for you.' 
He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.
 
The man who built the Titanic 
After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.. 
With an ironic tone he said

'Not even God can sink it' 
The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic 
 

 
Marilyn Monroe (Actress) 
She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show
 He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. 
 After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: 
 
'I don't need your Jesus'. 
A week later, she was found dead in her apartment 



 
Bon Scott (Singer) 

 The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang: 
  'Don't stop me; I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell'.
 
On the 19th of February 1980 , Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit. 
Campinas (IN 2005) 
In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend..... 
The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:


'My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.' 

She responded: 'Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here.....It's Already Full ' 
 
 Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died, 
the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact. 

 
The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken 
Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer)
said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written. 


 
In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle. 
Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus. 
Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive.
' GOD

PS: If it was a joke, you would have sent it to everyone.
So are you going to have courage to send this?.. 

I have done my part,    GOD said 

 
'If you are embarrassed about me, 
 

 I will also be embarrassed about you before my father.' 

 
I'M TOLD THIS WORKS!!!!! Bishop T..D. Jakes '8 Second Prayer.' Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!! 
'Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus' name. Amen.'

My good friend in Yarrawonga, Jeanette sent me one called "Gardening with Grandma." Thanks Jan.

 
A teenage granddaughter comes downstairs for her date with this see-through blouse and no bra. 
 
Her grandmother  pitched a fit, telling her not  to dare go out like that!
The teenager  tells her 'Loosen up Grams. These are modern times.  You gotta let your rose buds show!' And out she  goes.
The next day  the teenager comes down stairs, and the grandmother is  sitting there with no top on.
The teenager  wants to die. She explains to her grandmother That she  has friends coming over and that it is just not  appropriate...
The grandmother  says, 'Loosen up, Sweetie. If you can show off your  rose buds, then I can display my hanging  baskets.

   
Happy Gardening.                              
 Don't mess with a Senior Citizen!

My friend Gina sent this one. Thank you Gina.
Greek vs. Italian

 A Greek and an Italian were talking one day, discussing who had the superior culture.

Over coffee, the Greek says "Well, we have the Parthenon."
The Italian replies "We have the Coliseum."

The Greek retorts "We Greeks gave birth to mathematics."
The Italian, nodding, says "But we built the Roman Empire".
 And so on and so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion.  With a flourish of finality he says "We invented sex!"
The Italian replies "That is true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to WOMEN." 
<><>

My friend Lady Di sent this message for friends. Thank you Dianne.

Flower Delivery .........
I would rather have one rose and a kind word from a friend while I'm here, than a whole truck load when I'm gone. 
These Are For You !!!

Just forward these to all your friends, 
including ... back to me.
 
And don't tell me
 that you're too busy for this. 
Don't you know the
 phrase ......... 
'Stop and Smell the Flowers' ???
 
Let's just see how many 'Bouquets'
 you end up with !!! 
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
 
Trials keep you Strong,
 
Sorrows keep you Human,
 
Failures keep you Humble,
 
Success keeps you Glowing,
 
But .... Only Friends ...........
 
Keep You Going !!!
Thank you my friend for being a part of my life.

Another one from Jeanette. Thanks Jan.

 

Subject: Brian
  
A man walked out to the street and caught a taxi just going by. He got into the taxi, and the cabbie said, "Perfect timing. You're just like "Brian!


Passenger: "Who?"
 
Cabbie: "Brian Sullivan. He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happen like that to Brian Sullivan, every single time."

Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody."

Cabbie: "Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang
like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy."


Passenger: "Sounds like he was something really special."

Cabbie: "There's more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Brian Sullivan, he could do everything right."

Passenger: "Wow. Some guy then."

Cabbie: "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Brian, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Brian Sullivan."
Passenger: "An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?"
Cabbie: "Well, I never actually met Brian. He died. I'm married to his 'blooming' widow."

 Last one tonight also from Jeanette. Thanks Jan.
 A FIREMAN came home from work one day and told his wife,

"You know, we have a wonderful system at the fire station:

BELL 1 rings and we all put on our jackets ,

BELL 2 rings and we all slide down the pole,

BELL 3 rings and we're on the fire truck, ready to go.


"From now on when I say BELL 1
I want you to strip naked.

When I say BELL 2
I want you to jump in bed.

And when I say BELL 3
We are going to make love all night.


"The next night he came home from work and yelled
" BELL 1!" The wife promptly took all her clothes off.


When he yelled "BELL 2!", the wife jumped into bed.
When he yelled "BELL 3!", they began making love.

After a few minutes the wife yelled "BELL 4!"

"What the hell is BELL 4?" asked the husband?


"ROLL OUT MORE HOSE," she replied "YOU'RE NOWHERE NEAR THE FIRE."

My love and best wishes to you all. Cheers, Merle.

Merle
I am sorry you and old Mister Blogger are not getting along. He was not kind to erase every word you had typed. Hope you get a great report at the doctors on Friday. I must admit that last joke almost made me pee in my pants from laughing. Somedays I feel like a Goldfish and I too know lots of Ostrich folks. LOL Peace

Dave said...

OK, you REALLY have to warn us Americans when you say you weigh 40-50. I thought it was POUNDS! (I hope its' not pounds!)

Loved the jokes my friend...!

Big Dave T said...

I know all about this computer stuff. I just tried restoring my home computer to see if it will work better than it has.

On nothing rhyming with the word purple, this is one of my wife's favorite poems.

Roses are red, violets are purple,
Sugar is sweet and so is maple surple.

I'm hoping that you're counting your weight in kilos and not pounds. Otherwise you'd be almost invisible.

Have a great week!

Jim said...

Hi Merle, more good goodies this week!
You really made me glad that Mrs. Jim hadn't been married before she met me! Now I had, but she is a dear from Heaven compared to the ... from ... that ...

I think that 50 is a good weight if you can keep that. Mind you now, I am not comparing you to Brian Sullivan but Mrs. Jim weighs 50 average. I now weigh just under 80 kg but before my troubles I weighed 90.

I have posted on my blog the "Highway to Hell" song lyrics. Bon Scott was the lead singer and also co-writer.
Jim's "I'm on The Highway to Hell**" post

Thank you for posting all those words I sent you. I haven't tried typing left or right handed ones yet.

A tip on Blogger. Next to the RED 'Post' butten there is an plain button called 'Save.' Every now and then it blinks. That means it is saving the latest stuff you have put in.

If anything happens, click the next right button marked 'Close' and you will see a list of your posts to edit.

The top one in the list (most times) will be the one you have been working on. Pass your mouse over the title of it and you will see a blue 'Edit' link and then one marked 'Delete' below the title.

Click on the 'Edit' link and you should be restored to what you lost.

It is best to 'Save' and then 'Close' your blog if you want to go cook a meal or get the paper or pick a flower from the garden. Then when you come back, just go to the list of posts, click on the 'Edit' and pick up where you left off.

I loved this one, stay warm, and cheers,
..

It's interesting to know that "dreamt" is the only English word that ends with "mt" :) We always learn new things from your blog, Merle. Thank you so much! :)
