SARS, Rife In the Arab Countries

Several more people have died after contracting a deadly Middle Eastern Virus related to SARS,. Saudi Arabia's death toll from SARS has now passed one hundred, a total approaching four hundred cases of this respiratory disease. Other nearby countries  Jordan,  Egypt,  Kuwait,  Oman and Qatar have reported cases of this disease. No person is immune from this virus, avoiding  this geographical area  would be the safest solution for persons travelling to Europe.
Heading North  to Singapore or even further to Hong Kong and taking  Northern  loop flights over to Europe and thereby avoiding these infected areas is the safest option. However, I cannot recommend Canton aka Guangzhou PROC for a stopover, for reasons best known to me.
Have a safe journey.

Vest ... Back soon.

It makes you think.






The story goes like this:
The Americans are withdrawing from
Afghanistan; one of their command and control systems (used
for controlling pilotless drones) was hijacked by the
Taliban when an American transport convoy was moving down
from one of the hill-top bases. The Taliban ambushed the
convoy and killed 2 American Seal personnel, seized the
equipment/weapons, including the command and control system
which weighed about 20 tons and packed into 6 crates. This
happened about a month ago in Feb 2014.
What the Taliban wants is money. They want to
sell the system to the Russians or the Chinese. The Russians
are too busy in Ukraine. The Chinese are hungry for the
system's technology. Just imagine if the Chinese master
the technology behind the command and control system, all
the American drones will become useless. So the Chinese sent
8 top defense scientists to check the system and agreed to
pay millions for it.
Sometime in early Mar 2014 the 8 scientists
and the 6 crates made their way to Malaysia thinking that it
was the best covert way to avoid detection. The cargo was
then kept in the Embassy under diplomatic protection.
Meanwhile the Americans have engaged the assistance of
Israeli intelligence and together they are determined to
intercept and recapture the cargo.
The Chinese calculated that it would be safer
to transport it via civilian aircraft so as to avoid
suspicion. After all the direct flight from KL to Beijing
takes only 4 and half hours and the Americans will not
hijack or harm a civilian airliner. So MH370 is the perfect
carrier.
There were 5 American and Israeli agents
onboard who were familiar with Boeing aircraft operation.
The 2 "Iranians" with stolen passports could be
among them.
When MH370 was about to leave Malaysian air
space and report in to Vietnamese air control an American
AWAC jammed their signal, disabled the pilot control system
and switched over to remote control mode. That was when the
plane lost altitude momentarily.
How the AWAC can do it ? Remember 911
incident ? After the 911 incident all Boeing aircraft (and
possibly all Airbus) are installed with a remote control
system to counter terrorist hijacking. Since then all Boeing
aircraft can be remote controlled by a ground control tower.
The same remote control system used to control the pilotless
spy aircraft and drones.
The 5 American/Israeli agents soon took over
the plane, switched off the transponder and other
communication systems, changed course and flew westwards.
They dared not fly east to Philippines or Guam because the
whole South China Sea air space was covered by Chinese
surveillance radar and satellites.
The Malaysian, Thai and Indian military radar
actually detected the unidentified aircraft but none reacted
professionally.
The plane flew over North Sumatra, Anambas,
South India and landed at the Maldives (some villagers saw
the aircraft landing), refuelled and continued its flight to
Diego Garcia, the American Air Base in the middle of Indian
Ocean. The cargo and the black box were removed. The
passengers were silenced by natural means, lack of oxygen.
MH370 with dead passengers took off again using remote
control and crashed into South Indian Ocean to make it look
that the plane eventually ran out of fuel and
crashed.
The Americans have put up a good show. First
diverting all the attention and search effort to the South
China Sea while the plane made its way to the Indian Ocean.
Then they came out with some conflicting statements and
evidence to confuse everyone.
The amount of effort put up by China, in
terms of the number of search aircraft, ships and
satellites, searching first the South China Sea, then the
Malacca Straits and the Indian Ocean is unprecedented. This
shows that China is very concerned, not so much because of
the many Chinese civilian passengers, but mainly for the
high value cargo and the 8 defense scientists.

"How should I title this" ?

     Dear Emily Rose... It is doubtful if I shall be propelling myself further into the blogosphere this being due to my age and having less time to fulfill blogging duties, my wife has asked "what time is my 'Hair do' four times in the past hour, meaning I have another problem to deal with now. However, at nearly 88 and 8 years senior to my beloved I consider myself fortunate not to have lost my marbles and being youthful for my ongoing years, but not a 'Dorian Gray' as such, although I still have twelve bottom teeth no tatts and a fair amount of hair, I still drive and do gardening, mowing and cooking and other odd domestic chores,.My son aged 59 is a computer whizz kid and deals with all my PC Problems; eventually or when available when he is awake. ... Thank you for your offer,to fix my website - but due to a leak in our water supply I have recently received an excess water bill for $965-00. Although most people are seemingly aware I have oodles of dollars bulging from my many pockets and bank depositories, I do not share their misguided assumptions. So due to other more pressing demands for outgoings from my limited resources, it is with great sadness I have to decline your offer to regenerate my downtrodden blog site. Yours... Vest.

Class reunion, plus History.

gt;
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.

Vest... Back soon.

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."
Happy Easter!! !

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".
Vest.... Back soon.

BTW,Your shoelace is undone. .....AF.
