    Some Food for thought Posters…
    How do you milk Sheep ? Bring out a new iPhone and charge $1000 for it.

    To get rid of unwanted junk during the holidays put it in an Amazon Box and leave on porch.

    A married man’s honest confession…I always read my wife’s horoscope to see what kind of day I’m going to have.

    I’m bored I’ll go to the mall, find a great parking spot and sit in my car with the reverse lights on.

    If you’re sitting in your car and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say “ Did you bring the money”.

    When you ask me what I am doing today and I say “ nothing” it does not mean I’m free, it means “ I am doing Nothing”.

    Interviewer; So tell me about yourself.
    Me; Iíd rather not , I kinda want this job.

    Sixty might be the new fourty , but 2100 hrs. Is the new midnight.

    When one door closes and another door opens , you are probably in Prison.

    When I say ď the other dayĒ, I could be referring to anytime between yesterday and 15 years ago.

    I had my Patience tested. Iím Negative.

    The older I get the earlier it gets late.

    My luck is like a bald guy who just won a comb.

    I run like the winded.

    Asognosia




    Earth's Population Statistics in Perspective


    The population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion.

    For most people, it is a significant figure. However, if you condensed 7.8 billion into 100 persons, and then into various percentage statistics, the resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.
    Out of 100:
    11 are in Europe
    5 are in North America
    9 are in South America
    15 are in Africa
    60 are in Asia

    49 live in the countryside
    51 live in a city,

    75 have mobile phones
    25 do not.

    30 have internet access
    70 do not have the availability to go online

    83 can read
    17 are illiterate.

    33 are Christians
    22 are ******s
    14 are Hindus
    7 are Buddhists
    12 are other religions
    12 have no religious beliefs.

    26 live less than 14 years
    66 die between 15 - 64 years of age
    8 are over 65 years old.

    If you have your own home, Eat full meals & drink clean water, Have a mobile phone, Can surf the internet, andhave gone to college, You are in the minuscule privileged lot.
    (in the less than 7% category)

    Amongst 100 persons in the world, only eight live or exceed the age of 65!

    If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful Cherish life. Grasp the moment.
    If you did not leave this world before the age of 64, like the 92 persons who have gone before you,
    you are already the blessed amongst humankind.
    Take good care of your health. Cherish every remaining moment.

    If you think you are suffering memory loss, read on.

    Anosognosia, very interesting:

    In the following analysis, the French Professor Bruno Dubois,
    Director of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer's Disease (IMMA) at La Pitiť-SalpÍtriŤre - Paris Hospital addresses the subject in a rather reassuring way:

    "If anyone is aware of their memory problems, they do not have Alzheimer's."

    1. forget the names of families.
    2. do not remember where I put some things .

    It often happens in people 60 years and older that they complain that they lack memory.
    "The information is always in the brain, it is the "processor" that is lacking."

    This is "Anosognosia" or temporary forgetfulness.

    Half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease. The most common cases are:
    - forgetting the name of a person,
    - going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there,
    - a blank memory for a movie title or actor, an actress,
    - a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys.

    After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to thepassage of years .

    Many people are concerned about these oversights hence the importance of the following statements:

    1."Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory."


    2. "Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer's are not aware of what is happening."

    Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights:

    "The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness."

    Now for a little neurological test:Only use your eyes!

    1- Find the C in the table below!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    2- If you found the C, then find the 6 in the table below.

    99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
    99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
    99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
    69999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
    99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
    99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999


    3- Now find the N in the table below. Attention, it's a little more
    difficult!

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMM
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    If you pass these three tests without problem:
    - you can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist.
    - your brain is in perfect shape!
    - you are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer's.

    We are truly blessed, So, share this with your over-55 friends, it can reassure them.

    In any case, if you are over 65 and complaining about a few aches and pains, think again

    ........ 92% of people didn't even get that opportunity!!


    So be pleased with your situation and be happy.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Some Smiles For You Seniors.

    You know youíre a bad driver , when Siri says ď in 400 feet , Stop and let me out.Ē

    All my Passwords are protected by Amnesia.

    Iím at that age where my mind still thinks Iím 29, my humour suggests Iím 12 , while my body mostly keeps asking if Iím sure Iím not dead yet.

    As Iíve grown older, Iíve learned pleasing everyone is impossible, but pizzing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    At my funeral take the Bouquet off my coffin and throw it into the crowd to see whoís next.

    A wise man once told his wife nothing, because he was a wise man.

    You know youíre getting old when a recliner and a heating pad is your idea of a hot date.

    Iím not adding this year to my age, I didnt use it.

    The adult version of ď Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes ďis ď Wallet, Glasses, Keys and PhoneĒ.

    Everybody blames the government, but those who elected them rarely blame themselves for having the wool pulled over their eyes.

    In most cases the people get the gov they deserve.
    Why, because they never read the small print.

    #17…. I’ve been sacked from my job as a Bingo Caller…..Apparently a “ Meal for two with a hairy view “ is not the way to call 69.!

    A man goes to see a wizard and says “ can you lift a curse that was put on me years ago ?”
    Maybe says the wizard , if you can remember the exact words of the Curse ? The man replies without hesitation “ I pronounce you man and wife “.

    The owner of a drug store walks in to find a bloke leaning heavily against a wall. The owner asks the clerk “ what’s with that bloke against the wall over there ?”.
    The clerk says “ well he came in here this morning to get something for his cough , I couldn’t find the cough syrup , so I gave him the entire bottle of laxative “. The owner says “ you idiot you can’t treat a cough with laxatives “ the clerk says “ oh yeah? Look at him , he’s afraid to cough!”.
