Great video,Bob. Seems it's had over 1.1 Million 'hits' so far. Nothing quite like 'Serviceman's Humour'. :))
Lesley - 'one of the two guys doing press-ups'? ONLY one? Not the one with the big surfboard? Or the Lt.Commander skiving on the loo? :))
BX - Seems Mr.Corzin has all the attributes of a politician/CEO - "Do as I say,not as I do".

Paul, I can't really see any other nations troops doing the same.It's good to see that the guys and girls that serve today have the same sense of humour as those of us that served in the past had.|

Paul, I'm not tempted by a grown man wearing a lavender shower cap, and there is no way I am going to be tempted to drag a man off the loo. Thank you, I'll just stick with the men doing press-ups. Notice how I sneakily changed that to the plural? |

Lesley, I read that same story, and I found it kind of shocking. Guess we'll all have to squeeze our own oranges!|

I think so too. How did we start paying for other people to process our fruit for us? and how did we fall for the myth that "comminuted" orange juice is as healthy as the edible bits of a fresh orange? |
I've read that you can buy jars of beaten egg, and I've seen frozen omelettes for sale. Surely you can whisk a couple of eggs in less time than it takes to open a jar, and make them into an omelette in less time than it takes to thaw a frozen one?
Sorry, I think I just drifted off topic.

I'm not much of a cook, but I do fix my own eggs. Some things are okay frozen, but others taste much better fresh. An example is bacon. Always try to buy locally produced bacon. It is so much better than that commercially produced stuff that's injected with all kinds of fluids and preservatives.|

A 23-year-old Arizona State University student was found with her Toyota Corolla on a remote dirt road in northeastern Arizona after being stranded in the snow for 10 days, authorities said.|
She told a deputy that she had survived on candy bars and melted snow water.
Around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Lauren Elizabeth Weinberg, an ASU senior, was found "alive and well" 46 miles southeast of Winslow. She was located with her vehicle, which was entombed in snow at Forest 34 and Forest 100 roads, according to the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.

A man in Arizona took his kitten to the Humane Society for medical treatment. When he couldn't pay the $400 needed, they said if he signed her over, she'd be taken care of and put up for adoption. Several hours later he found out they'd euthanized her. I hope there's a really deep, cold dark circle in Hell for those people. |

Man divorcing wife of 77 years over her affair in 1940s|
A 99-year-old Italian man is divorcing his wife of 77 years after finding a packet of old love letters that revealed an affair she had in the 1940s, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The British newspaper's Rome correspondent says newly released court documents show that the man, identified only as Antonio C., found the musty letters while clearing out an old chest of drawers a few days before Christmas.
His wife, Rosa C., reportedly confessed to the affair when confronted, but couldn't talk her husband out of filing for divorce.
The couple met during the 1930s when Antonio was posted as a young Carabinieri officer to Naples.
The newspaper says the couple have five children, a dozen grandchildren and one great-grandchild

"A young Oklahoma mother shot and killed an intruder to protect her 3-month-old baby on New Year's Eve, less than a week after the baby's father died of cancer." |
" ... Police are calling the shooting justified."

A man I worked with many years ago was convinced he had supernatural powers: whenever he wished someone dead, they were usually dead within the week. |
He made the wish on one occasion when he lived in a block of flats. There had been a rush of burglaries, eventually pinned on a man who lived in the block. My colleague wished him dead because, he said, there is little more despicable than betraying your neighbours' trust. The thief died quickly too.
*made mental note to be nice to this man*
