Age shall weary them and make them forget.

Going to be busy this week, even avoiding things I should be doing and being reminded by phone that, I have to attend the AGM of my Association tomorrow which will leave me with an unclear head until Friday.


This one is for those of us " over " 50's..

Now you know - if you're the only one at church, it's obviously not Sunday. You have to remember a lot of things when you get old.

For all of us who are seniors - for all of you who know seniors - and for all of you who will be seniors. It pays to be able to laugh about it when you are!

And, speaking of senior moments:

"WHERE is my SUNDAY paper?!" The irate customer calling the newspaper office loudly demanded, wanting to know where his Sunday edition was..

"Sir", said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on SUNDAY".

There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition as he was heard to mutter,

"Well, Holy hole in the head"... so that's why no one was at church today".
.....


Fortunately, I have the Sydney Daily Telegraph delivered to my door daily, and my involuntary visits to the house of God have been to comply to the wishes of those being married or buried.
.................
Question: Why were the sound of Church bells forbidden in Great Britain during WW2?

Your answers in comments section only, no Email answers.

The only Clue is 'Operation Sea lion'.

Congratulations to the England Ladies Cricket team and their Winning of the Women's World Cup.
Question: Why do some lady cricketers wear a Cricket Box when keeping wicket or batting?

Back later, Vest.

Aggie & Kate: the answers will be given later, ok. TFYC.

Jimmy: I am able to understand the reason for your exclusion from Keshi's new venture. If I have fallen from grace too, so be it. Water off a ducks back to me.
I am sure Keshi is a big girl now and knows exactly what she wants without our interference.

Bill and the Blonde
Bill, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around
9:58 PM. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and
stared up at the TV.
The 10:00 PM news was coming on. The news crew was
covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building
preparing to jump.
The blonde looked at Bill and said, 'Do you think he'll jump?'
Bill says, 'You know, I bet he'll jump.'
The blonde replied, 'Well, I bet he won't.'
Bill placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, 'You're on!'
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy
on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling
to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her
$20 to Bill, saying, 'Fair's fair. Here's your money.'
Bill replied, 'I can't take your money, I saw this
earlier on the 5 PM news and so I knew he would jump.'
The blond replied, 'I did too; but I didn't think
he'd do it again.'
Bill took the money...

Pros and (emoticons--------------------
Theoretically, if you've ever typed a colon or semicolon in sequence with a
parenthesis with the intent of indicating the emotional tone of a written
statement, then you just might owe somebody a royalty fee.

Contrary to all conventional wisdom, the use of certain emoticons -- which
is the term of art for those little smileys and frownies composed of punctuation
marks -- is trademarked in certain contexts. Seriously.
Despair, Inc., creator of the infamous Demotivator Posters, owns the U.S.
frownie copyright -- but only on printed materials.


A Russian entrepreneur, Oleg Teterin, claims rights to various smileys and
frownies but promises not to enforce them on end users -- just on deep-pocket
tech outfits. And in Finland, where many a text-friendly mobile phone is made,
almost as many emoticon expressions are protected under trademark law.



The secret to trademark and copyright enforcement is context.
As mentioned, Despair, Inc. only locked up a particular frownie -- :-( -- in a few
types of print media. Other emoticon claims revolve around the conversion of
punctuation strings into animated images, as happens in instant message applications.

Nobody could reasonably apply for, obtain, or enforce a blanket right to all
emoticons, everywhere.
Moreover, trying to prevent people from typing out an emoticon without first paying
a license fee is unlikely to get much legal backing, though common sense has little to
do with it. You can thank the legal intellectual property concept of prior art.
The documented use of emoticons goes back more than a quarter century -- and is
older than the word emoticon itself. More to the point, the use of punctuation-based
symbols to denote tone (especially sarcasm) is older still.


No less a literary authority than Vladimir Nabokov told The New York Times in 1969 that,
"I often think there should exist a special typographical sign for a smile -- some sort of
concave mark, a supine round bracket."
The ARPAnet was just getting the hang of packet-switching at that point, so it's safe
to say the idea of an emoticon predates the Internet.


Q: WHO IS CREDITED WITH INTRODUCING THE SMILEY EMOTICON TO THE INTERNET?
IMS

Dear Vest


This is our chance to ask Senator Conroy to explain his plans to censor the internet.

The architect of the Government's net censorship plans, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy,
has refused interviews on the topic for months.
But at 9.30pm this Thursday night we have an opportunity to put him on the spot.

On Thursday night the Senator will appear on Q&A on ABC TV - a program that allows viewers
rather than journalists to ask the tough questions.

Click here to submit your question.

It's time to hold Senator Conroy to account for his censorship plan, which will slow down the
internet, make it more expensive, miss the vast majority of inappropriate content and accidentally
block a range of perfectly legitimate sites.

Record your question for Stephen Conroy today:

Thanks for being part of this,

IMS

Vest, I shall presume after much deliberation that the ringing of church bells across the whole of Britain during the second world war would be to indicate the country was in threat of invasion.
Not sure about the cricket box thing -is it a joke? Mike.

WALLY said...

My mother says vest is being rude about the cricket box as some of them girly cricketers are bigger than rugby footy players, I'm saying its in case they lose the cricket ball, am i right.

Kate...fb said...

I guess I was right vesty , but I wasn't saying about the women cricket players, you are very naughty, Luvs ya kate,x.

Sue, Gordons wife said...

I notice that the punctuation guru is back again, what a frigging bore.
My hubby tells me that it is a joke about ladies cricket boxes but if one does collect one in the nether regions you can run a Six.
I never wore a box. and was never big enough to score a six

Rosemary said...

Retired Hurt.
Vest is my hubby, who was playing cricket with local kids in the reserve when living at Seven hills NSW Aust- long time back.
I picked up the ball and threw not bowled - A Full Toss, poor hubby vest was not wearing a cricket box, and his look of anguish was a one up for me, he spoke like the godfather for a moment, and the kids thought it was great fun.

Vest said...

Thankyou Rosemary. More to it I can bear teste moanial to your comment.
And thank you all for your comments. also I thank Mike and Wally for the answers.
The graphic reply from an anonymouse caller, about the cricket box titled 'A Hole in One', unfortunately could not be posted.
