More humor, and then I will get to work on the pictures from my trip...

Explanations

Another - just shows how you present the information!!!!! Two young guys were picked up in Kentucky by the cops for smoking dope and appeared in court on Friday in front of the Judge.

The Judge said: "You seem like nice young men, and I'd like to give you a second chance rather than jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to show others the evils of drug use and get them to give up drugs forever. I'll see you back in court on Monday,"

Monday, the two guys were in court, and the judge said to the first one, "What did you do over the weekend?"

"Well, Your Honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever,"

"17 people? That's wonderful! What did you tell them?"

"I used a diagram, Your Honor. I drew two circles like this:O o

.. and told them the big circle is your brain before drugs and the small circle is your brain after drugs."

"That's admirable!" said the Judge.

To the second boy the judge said," And you, how did you do?"

"Well, Your Honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever."

"156 people! That's amazing! How did you manage to do that?"

"Well, I used a similar approach. I drew two circles...o O

... and said (pointing to the small circle)

"this is your butthole before prison....."

Limericks

This is from a contest on Long Island. The requirements were to use the two words Lewinsky and Kaczynski (the Unabomber) in a limerick.

Here are the three winners.

Third place:

There once was a gal named Lewinsky
Who played on a flute like Stravinsky
'Twas "Hail to the Chief"
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

Second place:

Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsky
We don't want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you look such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress
And wipe that stuff off of your chinsky.

And the winning entry:

Lewinsky and Clinton have shown
What Kaczynski must surely have known:
That an intern is better
Than a bomb in a letter
When deciding how best to be blown.

Be Healthy!!

A chemistry teacher wanted to teach his 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey and two worms. "Now, class. Observe the worms closely," said the teacher putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a door nail."Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the teacher asked. Johnny, who naturally sits at the back, raised his hand and wisely, responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."

where did Ken Lay come from?

A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died."

Kenny replied, "Well then, just give me my money back."

The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."

Kenny said, "OK then, just unload the donkey."

The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"

Kenny answered, "I'm going to raffle him off."

"Sure I can," said Kenny. "Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he is dead."

A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

Kenny, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898."

Farmer, "Didn't anyone complain?"

Kenny, " Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

Kenny grew up and eventually became the chairman of Enron.

Finally Together

She married and had 13 children. Her husband died. She soon married again and had 7 more children. Again, her husband died. She remarried and had 5 more children. Alas, she finally died.

Standing before her coffin, the preacher prayed to the Lord thanking Him for this loving woman who fulfilled his commandment to Go forth and multiply."

In his eulogy the preacher said, "Lord, they're finally together."

Leaning over to a neighbor, one mourner quietly asked, "Do you think he means her first, second or third husband?"

The neighbor replied, "I think he means her legs."

Finally... The pictures. I'm too lazy to sort through them, so I'm sharing all of them.

First the story...

This was a family trip with my Grandfather and Parents. Everyoneelse flew from Portland to San Francisco on Friday September 6th, then I met up with them, and we flew out that night, flying to Heathrow, and then changing planes and going to Edinburg. From there we rented a car and drove to our base of operations for the next week. We were at a resort just outside of Aberfoyle, Scotland. The scenery was amazing, the people we friendly, the food and beer were wonderfulBut we were in the middle of nowhere. Sheep, sheep, and more sheep was the most common site. From there we would drive out to other sites, like Edinburg Castle, Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument, the Obon Distillery, etc. Then on Saturday we went to Bath, in route stopping at a town my Grandfather stationed in or visited during World War Two, on the Severn. Monday was spent in London, staying a block off of Hyde Park. Finally we flew home on Tuesday, to the woman I love, and missed greatly.

Here are ALL the pictures. This is 799 pictures. So only look if you have the bandwidth. Also, the pictures are not as nice as when I went to Peru. I decided I did not want to much with film, so I took my PandS digital camera, and not my good SLR, so the metering is not as good, the pictures are not as well focused, and there is no depth of field, and I can't zoom in as well. With those warnings, enjoy my pictures. :-)

I few things I learned...

  • Scottish roads, in the highlands, are insanely narrow, curvy, and the people drive insanely fast. Now I know why that part of the world produces so many world class road racers.
  • Trying to keep the camera even with the horizon, while sitting in the back seat of a car zipping a break neck speed around corners is a little difficult.
  • Europeans are messy. Europe get's on our case about polution, but when I was there, particularly in Edinburg and Bath, there were many garabage cans around bt people were just throwing their garbage on the ground. And many of the rivers were abysmal. Before you give us shit about polution, look at what slobs your own people are first.
  • London drivers are the rudest fuckers I've ever met.
  • I was hoping to see a lot of the car manufacturers that never make it to the U.S.. While a saw many non American models of cars, there were almost all companies that do sell in the U.S..
  • I loved the Highlands and the small town.
Over all I give the trip a big thumbs up.
