THE PARENTS WHO DRUGGED US
Thanks to Peter H.
The other day I was in an
old farmhouse in the adjoining farm and someone asked me a rhetorical
'Why didn't we have a drug
problem when you and I were growing up?'
I replied that I had a drug
problem when I was young:
I was drug to church on Sunday
I was drug to church for weddings and
I was drug to family reunions and community socials no
matter the weather.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to
I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my
told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect,
spoke ill of the teacher or the priest,
or if I didn't
put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of
I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed
with soap if I uttered a profanity.
I was drug out to pull weeds in the garden and flower
I was drug to the homes of neighbours to help mow the
repair the clothesline, and if my mother had ever known that I took a
single dime as a tip for this kindness,
my dad would
have drug me back to the woodshed.
Those drugs are still in my
and they affect my behaviour in everything I do, say, or
They are stronger than
cocaine, crack, or heroin,
and if today's children had this kind of drug
Australia would be a better
God bless the parents
who drugged us.
A Place In Japan Called 'Cat Heaven Island'
Thanks to Unslave Me
Forget cat cafes and house pets, if you're a real feline fan there's only one place you need to be: cat heaven island.
Tashirojima, a fishing town just off the east coast of Japan, has more cats than people. And it looks glorious.
According to reports, cats were first brought to the island to
protect silkworm farms from mice. But when the silk industry left, so
did the majority of the human population.
Now just 100 people remain and the cats certainly rule the roost.
The locals feed and tend to the many cats, believing that they will be brought good luck and prosperity.
And there's no chance of being upstaged by their canine friends, for dogs are banned from the island.
Call me a crazy cat lady, but I can't wait to visit

Most Outrageously Expensive Items in the World
Thanks to David M.
International Space Station is the most expensive object ever made by
man. Hovering 380 kilometres above us, it is worth about 150 billion
The most expensive Bonsai tree in the world is Over 300 Years Old and will run you around 1.3 million.
most expensive book in the world is the Codex Leicester of Leonardo da
Vinci, a book of scientific writings by the famous genius, will cost you
most expensive watch in the world, the A. Lange Sohne Grand
Complication. This immensely complicated (876 hand wrought parts, 7
complications and 14 functions) and precise watch can only be made by
one man in the whole world, and it takes him a whole year just to make
one! It can be yours with patience and $2.5 million dollars.
most expensive jet in the world is the Airbus 318 Elite Private Jet and
if you want it you better have 62 million and gas money.
most expensive Cognac in the world is called Henry IV Dudognon Heritage
Cognac Grande Champagne (say that 3 times fast!) and a bottle costs no
less than 2 million. That would be about $20,000 per sip.
most expensive dog in the world is the beautiful, Rare and huge Tibetan
Mastiff puppy (dog on the right).
This gorgeous hound is worth $2
most expensive photograph ever sold was this deceptively plain photo of
the Rhein II,
made by German artist Andreas Gursky and sold for 4.3
The most expensive sword in the world belonged to no other than Napoleon Bonaparte, and will go for about $6.4 million.
The most expensive car in the world, currently, is the Lamborghini Veneno, costing 4.6 million.
most expensive champagne in the world is the delicious Gout de Diamants
Champagne was sold for 1.2 million. However, it is not the liquid that
makes this bottle so pricey, but the bottle, which has an 18 carat
white gold plate with a 19 carat diamond mounted in the middle of it.
The most expensive mushroom in the world, an Italian White Alba Truffle, 1.51 Kilograms is worth $160,406.
most expensive computer in the world is the huge Milky Way 28243
Supercomputer in Guangzho, China, and would cost abotu $400 million to
most expensive viola in the world, the Stradivarius MacDonald Viola,
made in 1719 and one of only 10 surviving violas made by the famous
master Luthier. It was recently sold for $45 million.
most expensive beer in the world is the Antarctic Nail Ale, if you want
to try it, you better be prepared to spend $1,815 per bottle, so there
better be a darn good reason for celebration.
