Class reunion, plus History.

Class Reunion

60th High School Reunion
He was a widower and she a widow.

They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past without fail.

This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.

They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high.

The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.

Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered,

"Yes,..... yes I will!"

The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.

Did she say “Yes” or did she say “No?”

He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank.

He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her.

First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening.
As he gained a little more courage he then enquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say “Yes” or did you say “No?”

"Why you silly man, I said ‘Yes. Yes I will.’ And I meant it with all my heart."

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!”
The Queen Bless her is 88 years of age today. Also 'Nifty Nev' Former Premier of NSW Neville Wran Passed away on this day 21-4-2014. I once beat Nev with a cheaper business quote back in the past, but we never met.

Korea 21st April 1952. serving on HMS CEYLON. At Twelve Noon, Flags were hoisted from fore to aft in dress overall. A signal from the masthead read, 'With the compliments of her majesty the Queen, on her twenty sixth birthday. Eight bells were rung, followed by a six inch gun turret firing a twenty one gun salute of 50kilo or 1cwt high explosive shells into a North Korean port. Later a less formal bombardment was carried out.
The other Highlight was the that the six hundred plus crew were all down with dysentery. we were at the mercy of the enemy had they known it.
The cure I remember was Sulphur 'G' Tablets four at a time, bitova bummer.

Your first Easter email
A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit
jump out across the middle of the road.
He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the
rabbit jumps right in front of the car.

The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal
lover, pulls over and gets out to see
what has become of the rabbit.
Much to his dismay, the rabbit is
the Easter Bunny, and he is DEAD .
The driver feels so awful
that he begins to cry.
A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway
sees a man crying on the side of the road
and pulls over.

She steps out of the car and asks the man
what's wrong.

"I feel terrible," ! he explains,
"I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car and KILLED HIM."

The blonde says,"Don't worry."
She runs to her car and pulls out a spray can.
She walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny,
bends down, and sprays the contents onto him.

The Easter Bunny jumps up, waves its paw at the
two of them and hops off down the road.

Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves
again, he hops down the road another 10 feet,
turns and waves, hops another ten feet,
turns and waves, and repeats this again and again
and again and again, until he hops out of sight.
The man is astonished.
He runs over to the woman and demands,
"What is in that can?
What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?"

The woman turns the can around
so that the man can read the label.

It says..

(Are you ready for this?)
(You know you're gonna be sorry)
(Last chance)

(OK, here it is)
It says,
"Hair Spray
Restores life to dead hair,
and adds Permanent Wave."

The Vicars False Teeth.

A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first
Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes.
The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes. The following
Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes.

The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and
They asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't
Talk for more than 8 minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much
To talk for more than 10 minutes. But, the third Sunday, he put his
Wife's' teeth in by mistake and for some reason he couldn't shut up...

So much for garrulity, in the next few days there will be a forced silenced from me
this will be due to my PC having a overhaul, hope to be back soon. ...Vest.

The Deaf/Mute Italian Bookkeeper:

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10 Million.
His bookkeeper is a deaf/mute. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that
Guido would hear nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court.
When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer,
Who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the money is."
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, Where's the money?
Guido signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about." The lawyer tells the Godfather, "He says
He doesn't know what you are talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says, "Ask him again or I'll kill him!"
The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."
Guido trembles and signs back, "OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the
Shed at my cousin Bruno's house."
The Godfather asks the lawyer, "What did he say?"
The lawyer replies, "He says you don't have the balls to pull the trigger."

Don't you just love Honest lawyers?

Allen's Fertilized Eggs

Allen was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young 'pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.

Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.

Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

Allen's favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!

When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To Allen's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.

He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

Allen was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the
Jackson County Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Always vote carefully; you can't always hear the bells.

Today in History 1945. April 1 Easter Sunday, All Fools Day.

April 1, All Fools day, Easter Sunday 1945. Operation Iceberg
We were promised that the time darkness fell that day we would have enough excitement to fill our minds for years to come. 
At the time I was serving on the Battleship HMS King George V.  as a seasoned sailor of two years and aged only 18 & 9 months, one of many children serving  as cannon fodder in the British Royal Navy during WW2.
The previous day Action was aborted; this was due to the tail end of a typhoon preventing the need for air cover from the Five fleet A/C Carriers, of the British Pacific Fleet, in the expectancy that an attack on the Japanese airfields At Miako Shima and Ishigaki by the Brits drawing off enemy air power from the Americans about to invade Okinawa the following morning would lessen the problems for the invading Americans. Well whether it did or not, the mayhem created the following day was not at all good for the faint hearted, and a taster for eight more weeks of similar activity to come.
Vest's action station was on the Air defence Platform, fairly frightening up there - brown trouser stuff, nowhere to duck.
Go to Wiki for 'Operation Iceberg' The Yanks give us Brits a Small mention, nothing unusual about that. Oh BTW  I survived many other silly conflicts the Brits became involved in.

Watts Naval Training School (Barnardos Homes)Nth Elmham Norfolk U/K  received a **25 pound sterling finders fee for each young boy delivered to the armed services , ages ranged from 15 years- mostly to The Royal Navy, this happened over several decades involving possibly thousands of  these youngsters , finally Watts closed in 1949 ending this tragedy. ** Ten week's average lowest income in the 1940's

My youngest Son posed this question in 1986 when visiting what remained of the mosly demolished WNTS School. "Why are all the boys in the cemetery mostly under twelve years of age", I replied , Son; "Only the toughest of us were meant to survive".

Nine year old singing opera!


Immune to music or off Key?

It is said that music is a universal language, but some people just don't derive pleasure from listening to a tune. However, that doesn't mean they are tone deaf or philistines, they are Biologically desensitised to the emotional effects of music.
A study published in the journal Current Biology, looked at the neural basis of music and how notes translate into emotions. It found that 5% of test participants had musical anhedonia - an  inability to experience pleasure from music, these people were otherwise healthy and happy, but simply do not enjoy music and showed no automatic responses to its sound, despite normal musical perception capacities.

Post 1194, Nine years of blogging from 23/3/05.Hardly a historical event

Hardly a historical event but much longer than most, however, it has kept my brain ticking over and my marbles lubricated, I feel my brain is as fertile as a 20 year old.

During my visit to the Gosford Hospital for a probe into my waterworks on Friday  my age was  questioned on at least three occasions and the Doc stated he wished to see me again in one year, "Any guarantee's I asked'  he replied , "I would bet on it". But the soreness of the event isn't helped by this seat I am sitting on. lots of stuff to catch up with. Will be back soon.

Glued Meat, A Revelation.

Make sure you buy whole chickens, whole thighs of chickens with bone, whole legs/fore quarters of pork and whole rumps of beef. Perhaps this is the reason for the frequent specials on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Buy chicken breasts only with bone and skin attached..
Now along with not eating seafood from Asia or other countries... we have to watch for GLUED meat!
This video is shocking & everyone should be aware of what they are doing and what you might be buying!!!
This white powder sold by the kilo, is the meat industry's dirty little secret. It's called meat glue. It makes pieces of beef, lamb, chicken or fish that would normally be thrown out, stick together so closely that they look like a solid piece of meat.

Today in History March 6 1957.

HMS Ceylon and crew carrying the flag officer Admiral Varyl Begg the representative
of the Queen , gave away the West African colony the Gold Coast and a couple of other
adjacent territories, which formed the new country of Ghana , under the political
leadership of Kwame Nkrumah.
Vest at the time came within spitting distance of this great leader.
Much jollity and shouts of "Freedom"filled the air.
It rained that evening; My white uniform was a total mess after the boozy celebrations with
ex pats from the the United Africa Co whose hostel I stayed at overnight.
Woke at six am on hearing a crash of a bicycle coming down the stairs, a still tipsy Reg
Harris a well known cyclist selling Raleigh bikes to the locals, had to be replaced by
a similar looking person ,
The house boy as he was called told me my washed uniform was not dry and there was
little hope of me wearing it to get back to the ship..
I rang the ship on a crackling ship to shore phone and was told to get back by the
following morning.
My original explanation was misinterpreted, and by the time it reached the Captains
ears it had been passed around a fair bit.
"He is drunk and naked in a police cell and has lost his uniform." Some yarns are hard
to live down but are great memories. Most of mine are historical.

First day of Autumn Southern Hemisphere. ( Fall USA).

Woke early this overcast morning; trotted off to point Percy due to the cooler weather, on my return I gazed from our boudoir window  at the arrival of another downpour. "Weather god you can cease now we have had enough rain please take it out to the black stump they are parched little Aussies.".
According to the newspaper weather guru's the greatest rainfall in NSW was 66mm in Newcastle which is 60 kay's north up the coast and 40 Kay's down the coast is Gosford which. had 39mm,
The containers placed around the back garden here in Budgewoi stuck in the middle of this rainfall all clocked up between 86 to 89 mm.
As I crunch on my morning muesli I watch the water about ten feet wide gushing along the side of the road, not unlike Chalgrove brook   near Oxford on a Sunday Morning , reminding me of the time when that little village had a working Mill powered by the back brook, but on a Sunday water was released by a floodgate near Franklin's farm and that water increased the flow of the front brook which ran through the village and prevented children from tiddler fishing and other childlike water activities.during Sunday in any case one wore their Sunday best clothes to church or that other place of worship up chapel lane opposite the school run by miss Dobson and miss Quarrigton  with about forty children  aged 5-11. I recall the floods there in the thirties, fortunately not where I lived with my brother ( Christopher 25-12-24 to 3-1-2004.)  and foster mother Mrs P, At number  1 Monument Road although the fairly new house built in 1928 was comfortable there was no plumbing or power. A placard on the front of the house read "Chalgrove Field" and apart from my time in residence in Chalgrove the only important historical happening was in  1643 on Thursday 18th of June When the battle of Chalgrove Field took place, When the parliamentary forces under the command of Oliver Cromwell's elder cousin Colonel John Hampden was defeated by the forces of Prince Rupert a Royalist German mercenary (Wikki provides a good account of this)
However, recent trips to the U/K have revealed the brooks are in permanent Sunday Mode the mill is dry and a palatial residence,  the village has a larger school  more housing a larger graveyard and no one I remember living there. Yes it has power and plumbing too.

Memories on a wet morning....Back soon ...... Vest.

Obtaining a Chinese Drivers Licence.

From the Daily Gaggle Special correspondent In Beijing, A,Carr.

BEIJING: If some one's intestines are protruding from an open abdominal wound, should you:
A. Put them back in place; B. Do nothing; or, C. Cover
them with some kind of container and fasten it around the body?

The above is not from a first-year medical school exam, but is one of the 100 questions that
locals and foreigners alike could find on China's written driver's license exam. (The answer,
by the way, is C.)

Test candidates are given a booklet of 800 test questions, 100 of which appear on the actual
exam. While the questions dealing with traffic signs are universally understood, others have singularly Chinese characteristics.

Sometimes two of the three answers could be equally right, or the answer that is considered
right is obviously false.

Take the following example. "What should a driver do when he needs to spit while driving?
A. Spit through the window. B. Spit into a piece of waste paper, then put it into a garbage
can. C. Spit on the floor of the vehicle."

Answer? B.

On one recent morning, a group of Americans, Russians, South Koreans and French
waited for the test at the Beijing Traffic Management Bureau, in a room reserved for
foreigners behind the toilets.

A series of gory images flashed across a flat-screen television: a badly injured person lying
in a car's back seat, covered in blood; a dazed driver sitting on the ground after an accident;
mourning relatives in tears.

Nikita, a Russian who works for an aviation company in the Chinese capital, was the most
confident person in the group, after spending four days revising the multiple-choice

The 20 or so examinees took their seats, each facing a computer screen. The test began.

They had to write their ID numbers, pick a language, and click their way through the
computerised test: A, B, or C. True or False. Yes or No.

All 100 questions had be completed in 45 minutes, with a candidate needing 90 or more
correct to pass. Results were given immediately.

A group of US embassy staffers left the room, mostly in a jubilant mood -- all had passed
except for one man, who only got 82 percent correct.

"We spent the entire weekend cramming," one of them said.

A woman tried to console the candidate who had failed. "It would've been an even bigger
pity if you had scored 89," she said.

Nikita, for his part, was utterly devastated. Despite all of his hard work, he only answered
45 questions correctly.

"I couldn't understand a word of the Russian used on the test," he said.

Once the written test is over, foreigners who have a driver's license in their home country
are not required to take a practical test, unlike the Chinese.

But they do have to have their eyesight checked, and this seemingly simple exercise also holds
its fair share of surprises.

At a nearby hospital, a nurse asked the latest candidates to read letters from a lighted panel,
covering the left and the right eye in turn.

But they have to read the panel in a mirror. And the letters listed do not exist in any known
A backwards E? One that is upside down? How do you pronounce that?

Somehow, the candidates passed the sight test, and most left the traffic management office a
short time later with licenses in hand.

But reality will soon set in.

At the entrance to the parking lot were two cars crumpled like accordions, and on the streets
of Beijing, no one seems to pay attention to the rules of the road.

Drivers routinely overtake on the right, taxis breeze through red lights, cyclists ride against
traffic and pedestrians jaywalk.

Last year alone, 73,500 people were killed and 304,000 injured in traffic accidents in China.

Welcome to China's roads, among the most dangerous in the world.


Vest recalls his Written driving examination in Hong Kong (Fragrant Harbour)Aug 62.
Maximum time allowed 1 Hour. Out of approx 200 participants in the hall,. I was then
told to wait for the pep talk when the hour was up; when I was first to put my questionnaire
in the box. Our new Ist Lieutenant who had arrived In Honkers on the same plane as myself
who remarked "Clever dick' was third. Later he told me it would have been dreadful if he had
failed, particularly you having knowledge of it.

Excerpt from memoirs:
While in Hong Kong, Rosemary would buy ice cream from the vendor
across the road. One day she was attempting to get back over the zebra
crossing but the traffic wouldn't stop. The ice cream was melting fast, so
Mary ran across. A taxi stopped suddenly and there was a huge pile-up.
The road was blocked for quite some time with several banged-up cars.
Many fingers pointed up to where we lived.
Our first car was a four square Jowett Javelin, but we later opted for a
Blue Ford Prefect XX511, which gave us two years of comfort and
One beautiful sunny day, we caught the car ferry over to Kowloon
and drove to Castle Peak Bay, where I parked under a tree, the shadiest
spot available. As we were leaving, I was presented with a parking ticket.
It wasn’t a huge amount. The following week when we arrived again, I
found the Governor Generals car parked in the exact same spot. I
approached the Chinese policeman who spoke English, and asked why
this car didn't have a ticket.
He replied, “Very important man.”
I said, “So am I.”
“Your car not look as important as this car,” he said. So I took a
picture of said oriental genius with the Governor Generals ‘Very
Important’ car and sent it to the Hong Kong traffic people, along with a
note indicating that my money would be forthcoming when they had
provided proof that the Governor General had paid his fine. I never
heard from them.
Our XX511 Ford Prefect had never been in an accident in eighteen
months. After we sold it, however, it failed to stop after leaving from
high in the Peak and travelling fast down Garden road. It then pranged a
large green tram that was coming from Wan Chai, and was subsequently
written off.
3 August 1964 That sad incident occurred two days before our family flew
back to England. On hearing the news Rosemary said “"What a shame; I really
loved that car"”. I replied. “"Darling it must have loved us too, it just could
not live without us". By the way, the driver survived.
My recent eye test, left my Chinese Doctor confused. I was asked to
cover my right eye and read the bottom line of the poster on the wall.
I replied, "Made in China".

Children in need of parents who care.


It is not only the Authorities who have to provide answers but parents themselves who blatantly ignore the real needs of children. Grand parents should not be the solution when bringing up children, Grannies have done their job and need to relax take it easy before they pop off to eternity.
So why are many modern parents ignoring their responsibilities and neglecting their children like never before.
It is simply because of the Us and Me syndrome society where many children are not considered a prime factor within the family and are ignored. A bit of keeping up with the Jones's goes back ages but its now like keeping up with the Forsythe-Silvertail-Smythes.
A comfortable house - home indeed yes but a huge mansion to accommodate more than is required in preference to the finance being spent on parental guidance and education and affection, no.
Thirty something couples have been dragged into the status cult where bigger and better looking houses have become the new magnet for visual self respect, what happens within these homes of absent couples working their butts off in order to maintain their facade of opulence; is in total contrast to the view from the street. Infighting, bickering and wondering how they can afford to send John and Jane to that private school where Dr Dick Cashedup next door sends his brats.
But that recent interest hike has hit them hard, so poor old Grandma's called out of retirement to get the children ready for school and provide boxed lunches now that school lunches are financially outed.
It is time Children were put first. We all have to work during our lifetime, however, we must live within our means.

Splitting the human race.

Splitting The Human Race. Your choice the Ruling Class. Or an Ugly Morlock?

THE human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures. It has already begun

100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed. The human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000. After they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress. These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years.

"Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates," suggesting that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance.

Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, That will make a few of you want to live longer.

Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts.

Racial differences will be a thing of the past as interbreeding -( this is not the type of inter breeding among relatives in Tasmania known to produce offspring with twin heads)- produces a single coffee-coloured skin tone. Some people I know have achieved this already.

The future for our descendants isn't all long life, perfect bodies and chiselled features.

While humans will reach their peak in 1000 years' time, 10,000 years later our reliance on technology will have begun to dramatically change our appearance.

Medicine will weaken our immune system and we will begin to appear more child-like.

The future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and the ugly.
While science and technology have the potential to create an ideal habitat for humanity over the next millennium, there is the possibility of a monumental genetic hangover over the subsequent millennia due to an over-reliance on technology reducing our natural capacity to resist disease, or our evolved ability to get along with each other. After that, things could get ugly, with the possible emergence of genetic 'haves' and 'have-nots'. And the workforce a major race of ugly mishapen hunch backed Gnomes

This theory may strike a chord with readers who have read H G Wells' classic novel The Time Machine, in particular his descriptions of the Eloi and the Morlock races.

In the 1895 book, the human race has evolved into two distinct species, the highly intelligent and wealthy Eloi and the frightening, animalistic Morlock who are destined to work underground to keep the Eloi happy. I reckon Wally would make a great morlock.

Food scraps(Leftovers) to be banned from household garbage collections.


Food scraps (Leftovers) to be banned from House hold Garbage collections.

Most councils within NSW Australia have adequate systems for waste removal from households and businesses. The main problem is abuse of the system by uncaring persons with an out of sight out of mind mentality.
Ban on bin food scraps,. Food could be banned from household rubbish bins or residents might be charged extra to remove it under proposals to deal with the state's growing mountains of garbage.
For those people who are not already dealing with this problem and wish to deal with the matter of disposing the putrescibles themselves, these few hints may solve your problems as well as helping the environment and if you have a garden; help with cost cutting. Of course it is your choice whatever you do.
Items such as bread and cereal based foods can be distributed to bird feeding at the bottom of the garden along with meaty bones for carnivores such as magpies crows, Dog owners would find few problems disposing of most bones, those not removed can be buried in the flower section of your garden. All other food waste such as left overs, peelings, banana skins, fats and more are buried in what I call a Fallow section of the veggie garden, ( An area not intended for planting within a few months, although digging in these areas after six weeks you will discover an absence of the former waste and a much richer soil, this can be a boon for those gardeners with sandy soil.
My veggie patches are about 6ft or 2 metres wide. I dig a trench across at spade depth and each daily deposit can be covered with soil or if the weather is inclement keep your waste in a covered container until you are ready to dispose of it in the soil.
You will save on compost or have a more productive garden by following these simple tips.
Remember. What man disposes of, Nature decomposes for the benefit of all.
BTW. All recyclable items such as cans bottles, glass jars and paper packaging must be free from food contamination and bottles without tops.
And don't forget that greasy Aluminium throw away baking tray you cooked the turkey in, ours will be placed at the bottom of the garden over a hungry ant nest and will be cleaned for recycling within two days.
Remember, 'Do the right thing". Have a great day......Vest.

Filthy Food From CHINA.... Enjoy

Food from China - very important to our health



The whole world is scared of China made 'black hearted goods'. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ?

For your Information ... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.

E.g.: all barcodes that start with 690 up to 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.

471 is Made in Taiwan.

This is our human right to know, but the government and related department never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products 'made in China ', so they don't show from which country it is made.

However, you can refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are 690 to 695, then it is Made in China .

00 ~ 13 USA & CANADA
30 ~ 37 FRANCE

Now read on below for specifics on goods from China to protect yourself, your family, and your friends.

This is sickening but it is an alert to read labels and always buy fresh when you can.

Have a taste for chicken? READ THIS

WATCH WHAT YOU BUY. ESPECIALLY HIGHLINER FISH PRODUCTS; all come from China, even though the box says 'product of Canada', it is from China and 'processed' in Canada, that is, the coating is added and packaged in Canada only!

The fish are raised in pens using chemicals that are banned in Canada as cancer causing but legal in China .

This was exposed on CBC TV's Marketplace.

This one will make you think before buying anything from China .

Well, are you enjoying seeing Chinese food popping up in your supermarket left and right? Have you noticed you can't buy a single package of fish that isn't made in China (or Vietnam )? Do you think your food from China is processed in a sanitary manner, and thus safe to eat? Take a look at this!!

These undercover enclosed pictures speak a thousand words. Avoid buying all processed food packaged in China. Anything goes! We just don't know what else is in those packages.

Unlike in the U.S. CANADA and Australia , China does not have laws regulating food processing.

Basically, do not buy any processed food from China , also Hong Kong , too. MANY Chinese companies are using a Hong Kong address to avoid this type of image reputation.

Early dawn, starts the day by riding around to collect dead chickens.

Asking around for dead chickens.

Total of 5 riders are hired by the boss to ride to farms to buy dead chickens.

A dead chicken cost 1 RMB and would be sold at 9 RMB after processing.

Storage for the dead chickens in the court yard.

Carcasses are thrown everywhere.
And on the floor....

Four employees start de-feathering the dead fowl after soaking in boiling water from a rusty wok.

Enduring the pungent odor, but sometime, it get so terrible that even the most experienced of the workers would puke.

Workers rushing to get the chickens de-feathered.

A discarded bath tub being used to soak the bare skin dead chickens.... The contaminated water would have accelerated the decomposition process.

Wearing slippers walking among the chickens before the colouring processing.

After the colour dye, it's creepy to find that they are quite tenderized.

And now presenting the mouth watering Charcoal Roasted Chicken!

Send to as many people as possible. Do NOT buy food originating in China (or Vietnam or Thailand)!

Take the time to read the labels and look for country of origin!
