   George Phillips, an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed,

which she could see from the bedroom window. 
George opened the back door to go turn off the light,
but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked 
“Is someone in your house?” 
He said “No,” but some people are breaking 
into my garden shed and stealing from me. 
Then the police dispatcher said “All patrols are busy. 
You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available”
George said, “Okay.” He hung up the phone and 
counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. 
“Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because 
there were people stealing things from my shed. 
Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because 
I just shot and killed them both; the dogs are eating them right now,” and he hung up. Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, 
a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic and an
Ambulance showed up at the Phillips’ residence, 
and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said to George, 
“I thought you said that you’d shot them!”

George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

Master Card Wedding


You got to love this guy… This is a true story about a recent   wedding that took place at Clemson University . It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it.

It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests.

After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a

microphone to talk to the crowd.  He said he wanted to thank everyone

for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their








He especially wanted to thank the bride’s and his family and to

thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him.

So taped to the bottom of everyone’s chair, including the wedding party was an envelope.

He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope.







Inside each manila envelope was an 8×10 glossy of his bride having sex with

the best man.

The groom had gotten suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a

private detective to tail them.

After just standing there, just watching the guests’ reactions for a

couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said, ‘F—you!’ Then

he turned to his bride and said, ‘F— you!’

Then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, ‘I’m outta here.’

He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning.

While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after

finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with the charade, as if

nothing were wrong.

His revenge–making the bride’s parents pay over $32,000 for

a 300-guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing

the bride’s and best man’s reputations in front of 300 friends and

family members.

This guy has balls the size of church bells.


‘Life isn’t like a bowl of cherries or peaches, it’s more like a

jar of Jalapenos–what you do today, might burn your rear.




There have been little clips about this place for the past few years, it is still not finished but is growing to that conclusion as they will soon run out of space.  A short review…. it was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby, it started growing by leaps & bounds.


Soon they were joined by other ‘Model Railroad Clubs’ and other craftsmen.  Some were electricians, model makers, carpenters, computer programmers, their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.  One thing led to another, 3 of the ladies had worked at a bakery,  several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted, some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen too. If the fresh coffee smell didn’t get you then the bakery definitely would.  This was about 5 years ago. One of the Breweries came and furnished all of the tables and chairs, serving counter, etc.  Their latest finished area is the airport.  Planes look like they are flying and landing.








1.   Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener.  


This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.  


2.   GPS.  


Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game.  Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans.  Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.  When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.  The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house.  They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house.  The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house.  It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.  


Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in it… Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.  




I never thought of this…….  


This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen.  20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.’  When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.  The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text ‘hubby’ in the contact list and got hold of the pin number.  Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.  


Moral of the lesson:  


     a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.  Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart,


          Dad, Mom, etc….  


     b.   And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.  


     c.   Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them.  If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.  



4.   Purse in the grocery cart scam…  


   A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children’s seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf…wait till you read the WHOLE story!  Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel.  After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers.  She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her.  By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized.  The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.  



Even if this does not pertain to you….Pass it on to your family and friends

Unique Places Around the World


The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia’s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek
toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river
undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only
move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.

Enchanted River is found in Philippines. It is called enchanted because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including
scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that
NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its bluish color is a result of its
depth and the water clarity changes throughout the
day. At around 12:00 PM, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went. I also have to
say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the ‘natives’ (especially in the favelas) knew exactly who it was and
respected it and what it stands for.
