Humour

Nothing like a good laugh

Jokes, warm fuzzies, and humour to put a smile of your dial.

Walk softly on this earth Get where you want without creating waves Have a wealth of good friends by being a friend Wake every morning with optimism And sleep every night fulfilled.

Words and words speaking mind Eyes deaf, ears blind, See me Touch me Feel me.

A Clean House Is a Sign of a Wasted Life

Some say a clean house defines a woman and even a relationship which is nonsense, yet it takes time that could be spent more productively hence the use of servants by the more affluent and now some robots.

Remember … a layer of dust protects the Wood beneath it, yet dust, dirt and grime are breeding grounds for pathogens that can toughen us up or kill us – the choice is ours.

‘A house becomes a home when you can write ‘I love you’ on the furniture.’

I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect – ‘in case someone came over’.

Dumb Lawyers

Humour

Some of these jokes are in bad taste but we’re talking about lawyers…

A billboard ad for a law office: “Just because you did it doesn’t mean you’re guilty. Lawyer to defendant: Was that the same nose you broke as a child? Lawyer to doctor: isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, in most cases he just passes quietly away and doesn’t know anything about it until the next morning? Lawyer to defendant: Was it you or your brother that was killed in the war? Lawyer to defendant: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he? Lawyer to defendant: Were you alone or by yourself? Lawyer to defendant: Q. What is the meaning of

Kalayo Music

World Music from the Philippines

Kalayo was formerly known as the Pinikpikan Band, a group of musicians who dared to be different and if you listen, you’ll hear influences of Sanatana, Jimi Hendrix and a range of New Age sounds. They are to the Philippines what Osibisa was to the UK, rebels and consequently pioneers.

Kalayo is a Visayan-Filipino word for “fire” which sounds more inspiring than Pinikpikan which translates to flogging a chicken; a horrid method of killing chickens before cooking. Kalayo is flame; be it yellow, blue, red, green or violet, the heat of their music will always make you feel hot and want more.

Officially formed in 1999, the band has made four music cd albums

Slavery in Arab Countries

About half of the Saudi workforce are migrant workers

If you pay attention to the news media, you will often come across stories relating to the abuse and mistreatment of migrant workers in Islamic countries. In Saudi Arabia for instance, almost one half of the entire workforce is made up of foreign labourers and some them are treated worse than slaves.

Most often the company organising workers on behalf of individuals or companies will retain the individual’s passport and documents which means that even in the country in which they work, they have no freedom.

Most of the men that go into these countries work in construction. They come to Saudi because there is not the work in their

The Karma of Technology

Will we pay a price for our pleasure and conveniences?

In most families, children are taught and encouraged to do their share to help maintain families and communities. This is natural and they can take pride in their contribution. But in the situation that has become more prevalent in the modern world is that children are being forced into lives of hard labour to help maintain adults who should know better in lives of privilege.

This is one of the darker sides of capitalism where in the case of mining, minerals are taken/stolen from the earth and much of the labour is performed by children were often paid so little that they remain perpetually malnourished and are constantly abused.

Another Hotel Scam

Criminals know no bounds

This is how it works to steal your credit card details:

You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they return the card to you.

You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.

The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card

Tales from real life

Hi, this is a bit embarrassing but I’ll tell you anyhow. Last week I arranged to get a ride to the mall with my brother who was going to pick me up at 1130 sharp. He’s really bossy but I had plenty of time or so I thought. I slept until nine, did a few chores in the buff and took a shower, then as I had time to spare I put on my favourite yoga tights and started working out.

Yoga is really gentle so I didn’t break a sweat and I was really getting into it when my brother arrived. Like he just pulled into the driveway, honked and called me to hurry

Sex Therapy

Humour

Two women had been having a friendly lunch when the subject turned to sex. “You know, John and I have been having some sexual problems”, Linda told her friend. “That’s amazing!” Mary replied, “So have Tom and I.”

“We’re thinking of going to a sex therapist”, said Linda.

“Oh, we could never do that! We’d be too embarrassed!” responded Mary. “But after you go, will you please tell me how it went?”

Several weeks passed, and the two friends met for lunch again.

“So how did the sex therapy work out, Linda?” Mary asked.

“Things couldn’t be better,” Linda exclaimed. “We began with a physical exam, and afterwards the doctor said he was certain he could help us. He

An Escape From Hell

The Story of a A Muslim Wife

Hello, my name is Selena and because so many people have asked what my life was like before I escaped this is the story I would have told them. I was born into a respectable Muslim family but I was married off to Mustapha when I was only 12 years old. His first wife Aisha who was 17 at the time disliked me because when I got married my husband wanted to have sex with me all the time. But after submitting to her authority and my husband lost interest in me and we slowly became friends.

We shared dreams of a Western lifestyle free of the chains that bound us to our
