Harry: Just a potpourri of light non political humor sent to me by an Irish friend, enjoy.

Some  teachers  posed this question to a group of  4 to 8 year-olds, ‘What does love mean?’ The answers they got were broader, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever imagined!

‘When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore… So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’ Rebecca – age 8

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’ Billy – age 4

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’ Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your chips without making them give you any of theirs.’ Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ Terri – age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’ Danny – age 8

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.’ Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

‘If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.’ Nikka – age 6

(we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)

‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it every day.’ Noelle – age 7

‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.’ Tommy – age 6

‘During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’ Cindy – age 8

‘My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’ Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’ Elaine – age 5

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’ Chris – age 7

‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.’ Mary Ann – age 4

‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’ Lauren – age 4

‘When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’ (what an image!) Karen – age 7

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross…’ Mark – age 6

‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

And the final one: The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s garden , climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, ‘Nothing, I just helped him cry.’



 As  we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

I  had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next  door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come  over.

 Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the  problem.

 As he was walking away, I called after him, ‘So, what was  wrong ?

He replied, ‘It was an ID ten T error.’

 I didn’t want to  appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,

‘An, ID ten T error ?  What’s that? In case I need to fix it again.’

Eric grinned ….  ‘Haven’t you ever heard of an ID ten T error before ?

 ‘No,’ I  replied.

 ‘Write it down,’ he said, ‘and I think you’ll figure  it out.’

 So I wrote down:


I used to like Eric, the little jerk

Confucius did NOT Say:

Man who wants pretty nurse must be patient.

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

Lady who goes camping with man 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, but man who runs behind car gets exhausted.

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

War does not determine who is right – it determines who is left.

Man who fights with wife all day get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Wise man does not keep sledge hammer and slow

computer in same room.

Man who lives in glass house should change clothes in basement.

And Finally, Confucius Did Not Say. . .

Is San Jose still the 10th largest U.S. city?

Austin, TX recently overtook San José, CA as America’s 10th largest city. Wow.

If you plan on going to Bear Creek then pay close attention to these driving directions otherwise you might get lost. I have never been to Bear Creek but I’m confident I could get there after listening to this little boy give directions. He includes distances and landmarks in his directions so it should be easy enough. I imagine there’s good fishing at Bear Creek and maybe some hiking and camping.Directions to Bear Creek

The ‘No-Nos’ of Tule Lake

Singled out for failing a ‘loyalty’ test, Japanese Americans incarcerated in a high-security U.S. prison camp during WWII are shedding the stigma and reclaiming their stories

Men at the Tule Lake internment camp in 1944.A BIT OF HISTORY

“As far as I’m a prisoner, I’m not signing anything.”

During the World War II internment of Japanese Americans, prisoners were asked two crucial questions: Would you swear absolute allegiance to the U.S., and would you serve in the military? Those who answered “no” to both were taken to Northern California’s harsh Tule Lake camp, and became known derisively as “no-nos.” Shunned, some hid their personal histories for generations, even from their own children. The L.A. Times produced a fascinating report on the Japanese Americans of Tule Lake reclaiming their stories.

Today’s Idiot of the Day award winner is a man who somehow thinks it’s a good idea to mess with a mama bear and her three cubs. This idiot in Tennessee is a future Darwin Award winner for sure. I’m really glad that the bear didn’t attack him because then the bear probably would have been labeled a threat to humans and euthanized. If only the laws worked in reverse and this moron could be labeled a threat to wildlife.Idiot Of The Day
