Here's Jocko helping me with my New Year's Resolutions... telling me I can do it. You can too! Thanks, Jocko!

Niagara Falls, 1911

A friend sent me these pictures of Niagara Falls from 1911. It just makes you wonder how cold it got and for how long it was that cold.

You can click on the pictures for a larger view.

I always thought this guy walking was interesting. Whoever created this animated GIF file did a great job. He has a natural life-like walk. He never tires out like I do. He just keeps on going, like the Energizer Rabbit!

More Talent
Dad and Mary sent me another You Tube video show great talent in a young girl named Connie Talbot. This is the same girl that I mentioned in last Tuesday's Blog. You can learn about her at Wikipedia and you can hear and see more of her musical talent right here:

Chains do not hold a marriage together.
It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads
which sew people together through the years.

Joke of the Day

A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir."

The driver says, "Gee, officer I had it on cruise control at 60 perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating.

Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: "Now don't be silly dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise control"

As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, "Can't you please keep your mouth shut for once?"

The wife smiles demurely and says, "You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did."

As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, "Darn it, woman, can't you keep your mouth shut?"

The officer frowns and says, "And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic $75 fine."

The driver says, "Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket."

The wife says, "Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving."

And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, "WHY DON'T YOU PLEASE SHUT UP??"

The officer looks over at the woman and asks, "Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?"

(I love this part..)

She replies, "Only when he's been drinking."
