NOT MUCH FUNNY THESE DAYS

so here r some jokes to tickle your funny bone:

"According to a new poll 6 out of 10 Republicans want Mitt Romney to run for president. So do 10 out of 10 Democcrats."

—Conan O'Brien

"Comedy Central announced they're going to be roasting Justin Bieber. The Bieber roast will start on March 7 and end sometime in June. There's a lot there!

—Score 2 for Conan

"The Patriots are denying they deflated the balls. Coach Bill Belichick said there was no tampering. He said all the needles they have are used strictly for injecting steroids."

—Jimmy Kimmel

"A new survey shows that most people trust Google more as a source for current events than traditional news outlets. Traditional news outlets didn't believe the news until they Googled it."

—Seth Meyers

I WAS ALSO SADDENED BY

the Paris attack today.

I think we need to learn that satire is a Western form of creative expression, not yet understood or accepted by some other cultures. To defame a God figure or  a President of a nation is not going to be received well.

Should people be killed for that? Of course, not! But go tell that to dictators, terrorists, and the like.

And, all the freedom of speech editorials will not bring 12 innocent lives back. At the end of a difficult day, respect is more important than the insult and the risk of retaliation.

Bye for now,

I WAS VERY SADDENED TO LEARN

that Stuart Scott passed from cancer on Sunday at age 49.

Stuart fought a heroic and valiant battle, even using martial arts a few days post chemo to potentate the results. He is in all three of my books as an inspiration for everyone in Cancerville.

But sometimes, as my grandma would say, all of that effort leads to "gournish helfin." Cancerville is one tough mountain to climb, and too often it pushes people—good people—off its steep cliff!

But Stuart was a strong climber and lived his life full to the very end. He was also a creative and entertaining sports journalist and will be missed by all.

Bernie Siegel, M.D, says "It's not about death as we will all die. It's about how we live our life despite the adversities."  No one exemplified that as well as Mr. Scott, a true hero in every sense of the word.

Prayers,

Bye for Now,

IS IT POSSIBLE

that the same person can be both Dumb and Dumber?

A former Governor and VP hopeful with the initials SP allowed her young son Trig to stand on the family dog, either to reach the kitchen sink, or see Russia from the kitchen window.

Dumb was posting the pic of him doing that on her fbook page.

Dumber was responding to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals by saying, "Dear  PETA, Chill. At least Trig didn't eat the dog."

What is really scary is that a person of such poor judgment could have been a heartbeat away from the Presidency. Whatever were you thinking Mr. McCain? I bet you still wonder that very question  yourself!

Bye for Now,

A HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Reflect back upon the year 2014 and carry forward all that was positive and prideful and leave the rest (all that cess) behind.

Be hopeful that 2015 will bring an abundance of positive, prideful, peace of mind times. Allow your heart to be open to optimism and closed for pessimistic and negative thoughts.

Allow love to heal all wounds and mend all fences, except for those that can't be mended simply because toxic people need to be jettisoned and replaced with those who enhance our lives.

Review your healthy habits and fill your pride bank, while doubling down on your efforts to stop the glop. Glop is anything that tempts us in hurtful and self-defeating directions. Who of us would want to include GLOP in our lives?

All good wishes,

Bye for Now,

Bill
