When using our sense of free speech it is a good idea to remember
"A kind word turneth away wrath".

TS..tee hee..i'm good at that..
Joybel..it really works too..have done that lots..
and for someone who is absolutely horrid, the kind words and reactions cause "burning coals on their heads"..have you heard that one?..it means it brings shame to the one that is so horrid, and they realise their behaviour is not good.

Of course you can tell them "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits forever!"

Or may pains of windy spasms ever through their liver dart .Oh what a horrible thought .
I am so glad that you pair of old Fogies never aspired to be diplomats. I can imagine the chaos and mayhem that would have followed in your wake. If you could have sorted Bainmaramara out with double speak your retirement in grace would most certainly have been guaranteed." May the road rise to greet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rain fall softly, an until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand." An Irish Blessing
And a good one. But I'm not too sure about the "old Fogies" bit after all I'm only 68 as yet, I would like another 20 yrs or so yet. But I'm not sure how I'll get on as I keep getting spam wanting to sell me "Viagra" they keep telling me it will increase the quality of my life?????? lol
Is it only us young and virile ones who keep getting all those Viagra adds . I can give you 16 years Brian and I never say I would like another 20 years because I know for a fact that if I keep of the Viagra and delete the spam I will get there especially with Joybels blessing ringing in my ear .
I used to get spam about viagra tooo....
Probibly not something you will find a lot of use for???? hee hee
Nothing wrong with yr ego Trojan and I say u have my blessing. When u are over 21, u have all the brains u will ever have, said my dear mum, u just have learn how to use thm.
Oh dear oh dear oh dear who in the world brought up the subject "brains" . Joybel you are not fair . One of my old teachers Jimmy Moir by name said to me and I quote " You empty barrel full of wind , you mathematical numbskull ," and put me in the place where I am now . No only joking , but he was a marvellous teacher and when in uniform I met him in City Hotel in Dunedin , he was a Captain and I was a lowly Sgt but it didn't stop him from taking the micky and then filling them up . my ego is as big as my pukku and rightly so , I never missed a prize at school until a snooty sheila came along and I only got a merit prize . Never trust sheilas. Take not you guys .
Freedom of speech , there is no such thing especially if you citicise the judiciary . See a bloke got arrested for doing just that . Love to know what his website was and what he said .
