Confucius did not say!

Humour

Confucian jokes with puns and risqué double-meanings have been fictitiously attributed to Confucius, the famous Chinese philosopher who lived around 500 BC. His name is used to lend credence to a branch of philosophy as the sayings of a wise man but people like to joke around and these are a few that play on words…

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman’s leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.

Man who runs in front of car gets tired, man who runs behind car gets exhaustedd.

Man who

Living with Boobs

Advice from a big breasted girl

Probably the first thing about big boobs is that everyone notices and a whole lot of people stare. As a 10-year-old they were a curiosity and then a nuisance because they got in the way of sport and of course I had to start wearing bras which are an uncomfortable feature of life that have yet to be totally comfortable with.

I probably inherited my boobs because mums are pretty big although I never seemed to notice in part because she kind of hides herself away. But she went to considerable length to make sure I got good bras even though I hated them. So I guess I

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’.

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

Buddha said

When people speak badly about you:

Keep a steady heart and do not reply with harsh words.

Practice letting go of resentment, and accept that another’s hostility as the spur to your understanding.

Be kind, adopt a generous standpoint, treat your enemy as a friend, and suffuse your world with affectionate thoughts, far-reaching and widespread, limitless and free from hate.

Conduct Yourself

“People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and

Young Girl & Big Sister

Humour

A little girl came running into the house bawling her eyes out and cradling her hand: “Mummy, quick! Get me a glass of cider!” she wailed.

“Why do you want a glass of cider?” asked her mom.

“I cut my hand on a thorn, and I want the pain to go away!”

Confused, but weary of the child’s whining, the mother obliged and poured her a glass of cider. The little girl immediately dunked her hand in it. “Ouch! It still hurts! This cider doesn’t work!” she whined.

“What are you talking about?” asked her increasingly perplexed parent, “What ever made you think that cider would ease your pain?”

“Well, I overheard my big sister say that whenever she
