Moody Blues Concert

I saw the Moody Blues on Friday night. It was fantastic. For all those people who never went, all I can say is that you missed a great concert. I actually had to check to see if they were really playing, as the sound was so good, it was like listening to their CD's or records in my case............

What really bugged me was the idiots who go to these concerts who sit and talk through the whole show. We sat infront of a bunch of these Neanderthals. The music was loud, so they had to yell to each other. What kind of person pays $100 for a ticket and then talk and laugh through the concert? The answer is simple. They either were given the tickets, or they don’t have the intelligence to concentrate for more that 15 seconds. I sadly think these people fit both of these categories.

Words woman use

Words Women Use

Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means "something" and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with "nothing" usually end in "fine".

Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission, DON'T DO IT!

Loud Sigh: Although not actually a word, the loud sigh is often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing".

That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements that woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks: This is the least used of all words in the female vocabulary. If a woman is thanking you. Do not question it, just say you're welcome and back out of the room slowly.

A billion

The next time you hear a politician use the words "billion" casually, think about whether you want that politician spending your tax dollars. A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into perspective:

A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate Washington spends it.

Moody Blues

Well I feel great today. Its amazing what a good sleep does.

I am going to the Moody Blues Concert tonight.

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks, in the sweetest little lisp, between two missing teeth, "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?" As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he's on her level and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabbit, or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?" She, in turn, blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees,leans forward and says, in a tiny quiet voice. "I don't think my python weally gives a thit."

Discographies

Found another good site. Discogs a user-built database of music information. A site with discographies of all labels, all artists, all cross-referenced. Its not perfect, but ist pretty good.

The devil finds work for idle hands

I love coffee

What a busy couple of weeks. Election meetings, job interviews, kids soccer coaching starting, resumption of my own fitness training, Dale Carnegie Teaching, etc etc. Thank goodness for coffee.

I have rediscovered the delights of a good cup of coffee. A coffee shop has opened just down the road. They roast there own beans etc. I am now a good customer and my office has a permanent coffee smell about it.

Vote for me.

A month ago I was asked to stand for a political party at the next general election. How many times do you get asked something like this? Your natural response is to say "No way", which is what raced through my head.
Its amazing how your brain speeds up in moments of crises. We say "our life flashed before us" when we had an accident, and its true, it does happen.

Well, when asked to stand for the election, my life as an armchair political expert flashed before my eyes. Oh how I love to sit and watch the news and run down the Prime Minister and her Government. I loudly announce to all who are in ear shot how I hate this or that. Nothing escapes my all-critical eye, to the point where the rest of the family, hesitate to watch the news with me. I hate to say it, but I realised in a few short seconds, that I am a New Zealand bigot.

I am not prepared to get of my backside and make a difference. I would rather sit and complain, moan and groan and do nothing. Sadly, I believe many in our nation are of the same mould........

Well, to make a long story short, instead of saying "No" to the man, I said "Yes".

I was rung last night and told that "I have been selected to stand."

The battle begins.
