Weights and measures , can be fun..

     For those too young to remember the pre decimal guide to weights and measures you may become lost in the translation of this simple Quip, so to ease the pressure on your noddle a short summary of  Imperial measurements follow. One Kilo in weight  is equal to approx 2.2 Pounds in weight and 14 Pounds is equal to one Stone.      On the arrival of my visiting relatives at my hospital bedside on Wednesday, the aged English guy in the bed opposite remarked on waking that he had lost half a stone  in a week due to the hospital food. I replied  "Sir; I lost a whole stone  In sixteen days when I was here last time a year ago". Not to be out done my visiting son Chris remarked , "A few months ago our Ginger Tom Cat Spent Six hours in the local Veterinary Hospital and lost two stones." Vest is a trifle sore in the Nether Regions and is unable to squat on this chair for too long , so I shall return  in a while. Vest.... back soon.    The power of imagination makes u

Maths Teacher Arrested At London Heathrow Airport - held in isolation. A secondary school teacher was arrested today at London's Heathrow International airport as he attempted to board an international flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a pair of compasses, a slide-rule and a calculator.

They use secret code names like "X" and "Y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns;" but we have determined that they belong t
PM Subject: charity Red Alert was heard from the sponsors of this Message "Scrooge and sons Safe depositories NSW Aus" The strange seismic sounds had bothered scientists. However , it was the last Email message Re Tiny Tim Of the Reywobs which had been simultaneously received by the Reywob clan which rang fiscal alarm bells, which resulted in the rapid closure of Cash safety deposit boxes in Richmond Kurrajong and on the coast at Huskisson in NSW Australia The radiant glow surrounding the said boxes portrayed the Ghostly Kosher Effigy of Great grandma Reywob in the 1930's whose purse was sealed with super glue to prevent spending and spillage - wailing "the ogre of charity besets us - we must repel all requests or lose the black ink supply for our shekel deposits" It was not until the following day The " All Clear" Was announced on Hewbrewvision that a Elder of the Reywob clan had announced That he had

The Explanation

The Explanation This relates to a one off cocky fem  med person I met yesterday  Any aged person at 88 plus who has four sources of income and has lived in five different countries and travelled to at least 78 countries some many times, and has written his memoirs and is still posting on his blog after nearly ten years and 1, 262 posts plus comments and still writes for News Corp  but has lost his hearing aid.  has no desire to be belittled and be put down by some one job  medical nanny, your assumptions are way out of whack. I refer to other persons  of similar age not all suffer from dementia as some medical staff would love to presume and be treated as if one were a juvenile or retard. Brains of older people are slow because they know so much . People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe . Much like a computer struggles as the
