    Did you hear about the taxidermist who mounted a pavement?

    Am I the only one who thinks the police look too young to be out on their own? Is that why they go around in pairs? I almost expect to see them carrying a Thomas the Tank Engine lunch box. And why don't they wear proper helmets any more instead of those silly flat caps. At least the old uniforms made them look important, not to mention taller. I would have thought with the avereage height of men increasing it would be easier to find tall coppers. My grandfather was 6'2 and was not deemed to be particularly tall as a policeman.

    Same as the Nuns in pairs, one Nun makes sure the other Nun don't get none

    I almost spit out my applesauce whilst reading that last one and eating at the same time, lol. It brought to mind to "twin" nuns at my grade school: Sisters Georgia and Georgianna. Their lot in life (to me at the time) to to see which one could be the most wicked to students. We were still afraid of them in 8th grade!

    I recall a pipe tobacco called 3 Nuns, rumour had it that the last bit in the packet was more like the mother superior.

    Do you remember the "Big G" lumber stores? A town
    fifty miles from where I live used to have this place.
    It was kinda like Lowes but not quite that big but
    large enough to get lost in.

    We had a shop in my village that would only hold two people at a time. There is also a pub in Herne that will only hold four people.

    I remember some discount stores that are no more. I remember
    Grants, Airway, ABC yes there was such a store, Kuesters,
    Big K, and Mr. Wiggs. Today's Walmart doesn't even compare
    to those big as it is. I remember when Kmart wasn't ran by
    Martha Stewart and Sears. It was it's own company years
    ago and you could find some good buys there too. Woolco
    was another one that I miss and Woolworths. Ben Franklin's
    dime store was the fore runner of Walmart's success by it's
    creator Sam Walton. For real I miss those places to shop.
    Your Ben Franklin stores were downtown instead out in the
    sticks or suburbs away from where business is needed the
    most. I don't know of the toys I got from Ben Franklin when
    I was a kid. Unlike walmart, the little dime store was a real
    jewel and had better merchindise for your money. Are there
    any places that you miss that you used to shop at?

    Do you remember those days when you made a phone call, in your childhood, you actually asked your parents' permission first?

    You picked up the receiver and then dialled the number?

    fond memories for me.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.
