Vest To Tim

DAD. ITS TIM CALL ME, NEED TO ORGANIZE AN AIR CONDITIONER. SO I DON'T DIE.

Vest said...
Tim: Go to your local cheapo store and purchase a cheap Chinese fabricated fan(some Assembly required). If confused contact 'B' your friend, at United Assemblies.
Your mother and I shopping yesterday purchased a 40cm fan from the reject shop, costing $15-00, I assembled said fan in 20 minutes. The new fan was a replacement for the fan I gave you when you moved out on Tuesday, it came from my blogging room (Office). I am finding it comfortable on the first notch; although the outside temp has reached 38 deg Cel, the Loungeroom Air-con is not turned on. So pop out on your Bike and buy another fan and dont be a wimp.
Final costing for your move borne by your dear mother and yours truly- $644-00, this will be written off and join all previous write offs and monetary muggings.
BTW Tim, thank your lucky stars you are not living in the Uk, where everyone is sticking red hot pokers in their beer and avoiding icecream and fans at this moment.

Tim. There is no success without hardship.
It would appear your Father is a successful Sucker, successfully cajoled by some members of his extended family.
It pleases me to see he is making a stand.
life is what happens to us while we are making other plans, and you must be the change you want to see in the world.
Try harder. Mike.

Anonymous Tim. If ever my indebtedness to you reaches XXL grand your indebtedness to me will cease.I would suggest you put your available intelligence and physical ability to good use, pull your finger out and provide for yourself,, or would you like your 82 year old father with a heart condition to get a job digging ditches and mowing lawns to go on providing for you and your family until I drop.

Any future comments from you Tim will be moderated but not published.
Have a nice weekend.
WARMEST greetings from your daddykins. ;)))X Hugs etc.

Dear Saby



I am only sending this to you since your email carries the following stupid exhortation :



k Saving paper is saving trees !!
it takes 17 full grown trees to make one tonne of paper



On Greenery :



There are increasingly raucous calls nowadays for “saving” greenery in India . Besides the population at large these calls are being directed at children through strident propaganda directed at schools. We are all being exhorted to carry out foolish and meaningless tasks like planting greenery , opposing felling of trees etc. The seeming rationale behind these exhortations sound plausible to those unwilling or unable (children) to pursue the subject further. As to the motives behind these campaigns one can indeed speculate but the facts themselves are as follows :



1)Mankind is being fed by “greenery” . All food is ultimately sourced from plant stock since grazing animals etc survive on such food. The point is acreage for food stock is RISING as populations grow. Hence at least this edible “Greenery” is NOT going down. Man has no doubt “discriminated” in favour of edible greens at the “cost” of other species but as far as total greenery is concerned man is not a culprit in this regard.



2)It is said that forests are being felled for “greed” etc at the cost of Greenery . Actually human beings have “cleared “ areas for living and commerce since the dawn of civilization and this is hardly a new phenomenon. Actually many existing countries such as the UK are today admired for their rolling pastures etc without realizing that such vegetation is totally manmade by dint of hard labour over a span of some two thousand years.



3)The Brazilian Rain forests are often brought into the picture . These are claimed to be shrinking and disasters are being projected on this count. Actually this so called shrinkage is a debatable issue and can be attributed to various sources besides man. Indeed throughout the past such fluctuations have taken place owing presumably to the variation in sunlight from wobbling of the earth’s axis etc . The real causes are seemingly complex and cannot be laid laid simplistically at mankind’s doorstep.



4) “Concrete Jungles” are another source of spreading this falsehood . This derogatory name for cities tries to vilify civilization itself ! Presumably the message is that we should all live in tree houses ( or maybe swing from the branches since even a tree house involves some felling of trees ! )



And this brings us to the logical hidden meaning of all this propaganda . That is this is simply a diatribe against civilization itself ! The real cause is for :

a) Stopping growth of agriculture

b) Reversing growth of cities

c) No roadways hence no cars or other modern transport.

d) b) and c) will effectively stop all scientific activities and industry and end civilization as we know it !



Of course those spreading the above ideology are entitled to do so but my point is that they should be forthcoming about it . They should not “hide in the shrubbery” but should openly come out with their real agenda ! Who knows the children may like the new line since all this means NO MORE SCHOOL OR HOMEWORK !



There are others who point to a more sinister explanation. They say the “nutters” have been hijacked by those with a political agenda . This political agenda is to stop or contain rapid growth of rising countries like India or China. They point out that all talk of Global Warming , pollution etc has started only over the last two decades or so when India and China( in particular) started their “Long March” to match living standards of the West. An effective way of stalling their ambitions is to try to accuse them of despoiling the planet and trying to wipe out humanity ! Such charges it is said may give some sort of moral sanction to halt or contain their development. The “Weapons of Mass Destruction” come to mind .



Regards



Vivek Thakur

- no religiosity of any kind, no gods, no mumbojumbo, no false promises of a great hereafter, no form of escapism into some blissful never-neverland!



What I fmd most appealing about this technique is its simple, pure scientific rationality - no religiosity of any kind, no gods, no mumbojumbo, no false promises of a great hereafter, no form of escapism into some blissful never-neverland! Buddha's emphasis on practice and an ethical life and not just theorizing or intellectualizing make the whole method intensely practical and keeps




one's feet solidly on the ground. In fact cl Buddha's defmition cl of Dhanuna, or reli- fo gion, is the understanding of the laws of nature, understanding the world of mind and matter, and then living in accord· A ing to those laws. II vipassana helps you eJ to do just that.



The 0 whole concept of E Karma is shorn of all 5 the superstition and rubbish that some religious sect has I smothered it with, e and one is able to experience it and un- 5 derstand it as mere cause and effect, action and reaction. 'J




The universality of it the method, the total I lack of any kind of 1 sectarianism makes it truly scientific and acceptable to any human being irrespective of caste, colour, creed or sex.

Rosemary said...

Jimmy. My hubby is a gentleman, he has never been violent to his children or me for that matter.
He is a most generous man, not only to his family but other people in dire need, people without hope. The person in question T would squeeze us dry if permitted. He has the ability to turn hiself around but chooses the easy way out with drugs borrowings and any other way which can be off loaded to sympathetic suckers.
Hubby is having to deal with his own personal matters at this moment, any unsavoury chatter will be given the chop whilst I am in charge of the shop, no one excused.
Have a thoughtful day.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.

Jimmy said...

the prob with military men ...
they run their home like a military establishment

if it moves and has more stripes than u
Salute it

if it doesnt move
shine it (spit n polish)




I bet Rm has to salute the much ribboned blighter when he steps into the house

Jimmy said...

after my business collapsed
I was nagged night and day by wifey

I went into acute depression
and one day I slashed my rists and hoped to die


I was saved in the nick of time
my friends and family called me a coward ....





Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage ???

Keshi. The boot is on the other foot. It has never been the case of us putting the bite on him.

Aggie. Yes we are having cooler weather, it has been overcast much of the day but no rain yet.

Jimmy I am sorry to have to scrub most of your comments due to unacceptable content.(Naughty).

Three old ladies were sitting side by side in their retirement home reminiscing.
The first lady recalled shopping at the green grocers and
demonstrated with her hands, the length and thickness of a cucumber she could buy for a penny.
The second old lady nodded, adding that onions used to be much bigger and cheaper also, and demonstrated the size of two big
onions she could buy for a penny a piece.
The third old lady remarked, "I can't hear a word you're
saying, but I remember the guy you're talking about."
____________________________________________________

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car.
Both could barely see over the dashboard.

As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection.

As they did the stoplight was red but they just went on
through.

The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, "I must be losing it I could have sworn we just went through red light."

After a few more minutes they came to another intersection,

the light was red, and again they went right through.

This time, the passenger was almost sure that the light had

been red, but was also concerned that she might be seeing things.

She was getting nervous and decided to pay close attention.

At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they blew right through it.
She turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred! Did you
know that you ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us!"

Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh really..! Am I driving..?"
