spell check (humor)-Technology?

 

 

 From one of my golfing buddies ..

 Hi Jerry,

this is Tom next door.

I have a confession to make.

I’ve been riddled with guilt these past few months and have been trying to pluck up the courage to tell you to your face, but I am at least now telling you in text as I cannot live with myself a moment longer without you knowing.
 
 The truth is I have been sharing your wife, day and night when you’re
 not around.

In fact, probably more than you.
 I haven’t been getting it at home recently, but that’s no excuse, I know.

The temptation was just too much.

 I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies and forgive me.

It won’t happen again.

 Please suggest a fee for usage, and I’ll pay you.
 
 Regards, Jerry
 
 
 THE RESPONSE:
 
Jerry, feeling insulted and betrayed, grabbed his gun, and shot his neighbor dead.

He returned home where he poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.
 He took out his phone where he saw he had a second message from his neighbor.
 
 THE SECOND MESSAGE:
 
 Hi Jerry,

 This is Tom next door again. Sorry about the typo on my last text.

 I expect you figured it out anyway, and that you noticed that darned
 Auto-Correct changed “wi-fi” to “wife” Technology hey?
 
Regards,

Tom

indulge in enjoyable recollection of past

 

How is this For Nostalgia?   

All the girls had ugly gym uniforms ,

It took 3 minutes for the TV to warm up,

Nobody owned a purebred dog,

When a quarter was a decent allowance,

You’d reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

 

Your Mom wore nylons that came in 2 pieces.

You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time. And you didn’t pay for air. And, you got trading stamps to boot,

Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box,

It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents,

They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed…and they did it!

When a 57 Chevy was everyone’s dream car…to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went steady.

No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked,

Lying on your back in the grass with your friends and saying things like, ‘That cloud looks like a…’ 

Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game,

Stuff from the store came without safety caps and  hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger,

And with all our progress, don’t you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savour the slower pace, and share it with the children of today,

When being sent to the principal’s office was nothing  compared to the fate that awaited the student at home,

Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn’t because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc.  Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat!  But we survived because their love was greater than the threat. 

…as well as summers filled with bike rides, Hula  Hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.

Didn’t that feel good, just to go back and  say,

‘Yeah, I remember  that’

I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on. To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, read on. And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care.

Share  this on with someone who can still remember Howdy  Doody and The Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The              Shadow knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and  Dale,Trigger and Buttermilk.

How Many Of These Do You Remember?
Candy cigarettes

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with coloured sugar water  inside.

Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles. 
 
Coffee shops with Table Side Jukeboxes. 
 
Blackjack, Clove and Teaberry chewing gum.

Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers.

Newsreels before the movie.

Telephone numbers with a word prefix…( Yukon 2-601).  Party lines.

Peashooters.
&nb sp;

Hi-Fi’s & 45 RPM records.

78 RPM records!

Green Stamps.

Mimeograph paper.

The Fort Apache Play Set. 

Do You Remember a Time When:  

Decisions were made by going ‘eeny-meeny-miney-moe,’ 
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, ‘Do Over!’ 

‘Race issue’ meant arguing about who ran the fastest,

Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire Evening,

It wasn’t odd to have two or three ‘Best 
Friends,’

Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a  Slingshot,

Saturday morning cartoons weren’t 30-minute commercials for action figures,

‘Oly-oly-oxen-free’ made perfect sense ,

Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles,

The Worst Embarrassment was being picked last for a  team,

War was a card game,

Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a  motorcycle,

Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable aspirin,

Water balloons were the ultimate weapon,

If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived!!!   come again and see some more

HEART ATTACKS & WATER …

HEART ATTACKS AND WATER !
How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night.

Heart Attack and Water -(I never knew all of this

Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor – Gravity holds water in the lower… part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc.) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water…
Very Important. >From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on    the body     
2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack
I can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
 
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
 
  1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
    The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
  2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Please read on…

Something that we can do to help ourselves – nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks.
 
There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note:   There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say “heart attack!” – Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and …  DO NOT LIE DOWN!
A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after reading this and shares with 10 people, probably one life could be saved!
I have already shared this information with you. What about you?
Just share it, this message. It may save lives!         heartbit
