Sell Your Golf Clubs


I'm embarrassed to admit this but I'm watching old episodes of Survivor. I only watched the very first episode and then I didn't want to get hooked on it again. I didn't even know it was still running. Is it? To my pleasant surprise, a few of the seasons are available online. The beauty about watching it this time around is there is no waiting for next week's episode.

I don't know. Maybe I just love seeing desperate people go at each other's throats. It's Reality TV at it's awful best.

Beyond the tragic faces of the spoiled contestants, there is the beauty of the untapped wildreness.

We humans are funny. No matter how compassionate we think we are, we still relish seeing people struggle to the death. We enjoy the twists and turns as human drama unfolds ... seeing alliances fray at the seams when opportunity knocks.

I don't have any earth-shattering message to share today. Except maybe that I'm just like you. We've all got our guilty pleasures ... warts and wrinkles. Some of us are better at hiding them. Some of us have learned to overcome them. And some of us ... don't really think about it ... some just go with the flow.

Sell Your Golf Clubs
Contributed by Don of Kelowna, B.C.

Jerry decided to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his golf shoes. His wife was standing there watching him. After a long period of silence she finally speaks.

"Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you quit golfing. Maybe you should sell your golf clubs."

Jerry gets this horrified look on his face.

She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"

”For a minute there you were sounding like my ex-wife.”

"Ex wife!?!?!" she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"

”I wasn't!“

Jody said this website would appeal to both my inner artist and humorist. She was right.

Bob Hope Christmas with the Troops
Contributed by Rodney of Manitoba, B.C.

Bob Hope

Bob Hope left us on July 27, 2003 yet his memory lives on especially in the hearts of the US troops he visited every Christmas. I used to work in Burbank in the Toluca Lake area and during lunch breaks my officemates would tour me around Bob's neighborhood. The walls of his mansion were covered with vines.

Andre Rieu and 3 year old violinist

This is a long but entertaining video. Hey, I know some of you have all the time in the world and watch every single post I send every Friday. This kid has the makings of a star. Here he is at 5 years old.

Golf Fails

Why oh why do people insist on playing this dangerous game? There are days when I wish I could play this expensive escape but when I see videos like this, I am content just where I am.

Bullet vs. Water Balloons
Contributed by Art of Pasadena, CA

Bullet vs Water Balloons

Okay, time for some science. How many water balloons does it take to stop a bullet? The answer is between 1 and 10. This is not a trick question. Understanding the velocity of a fired bullet and the density of a water balloon, how many balloons will it go through? I love the slow motion. FYI, I guessed too many.

Selfie Shoes

THe Selfie Shoes

This was an April Fool's Joke but I wasn't sure when I got it the first time. SIlly me.

TGIF people!


I stayed the longest with the Bob Hope video. Just looking at the faces of those men in laughter and tears, so young, so vulnerable, fighting for their country ...... and Bob Hope gave his all for them..... his talents, his sincerity, his humanity. God bless America and its people!
