Feel The Birthday Love

My two sons (see Fig. 1) obviously love me, and sent this beautiful birthday card. Blanco took the unprecedented step of shaving before the picture was taken, and Rondo appears to have stopped cussing, at least briefly. Not everyone is fortunate enough to ever know such devotion. To be honest, neither of these boys is particularly blessed with a gift for tender heartfelt expression, and their twist on the usual birthday song lyrics betrays a wee bit of that. But you can be sure their hearts are in it.

My warmest thanks to a few friends who popped by with kind birthday wishes in the Siamese Cats discussion immediately below.

My God, I can't believe I'm 101.

The accidents do happen now and then. It’s more common that the Christmas tree burns down. The fire is covered by insurance Co. Their stand to the matter:

Hmmm ....
What's the problem about the comments ... is it our trans-Atlantic apparency ... I agree that the ocean sure is a big closet. Maybe, united we can make it cleaner or should it be clearer? Lost in translations again.
The guy from "analyze that" sure isn't much clearer ... or cleaner for that matter ;-)))

The Swedes are pretty quick to put it out, ha, ha. Seriously now, what I meant was that fire always starts with Christmas trees. Now days not many use the candles on the trees but as you said el. malfunction often gives a problem. Yes, I’ve been using the artificial one for many years. With a bunch of a kids around it’s much easier to keep the place clean and safe. Afterword is just to pack it up and storage till next year.
And… candles on trees?…don’t push your luck :-)

Sorry for your disappointment but it’s safer that way. Great idea with x-tree. Here is a tip; spray little oil on it, it will keep it moist so you’ll skip having a crunchy one next year, he,he.
Have a nice shopping day. No delays with that :-D

I’m very glad you’ve enjoyed the music. And Paul Anka…so many people don’t even know that he is Canadian and that a lot of topics from ’70 were his doing: Jackson 5, Osmond’s brothers, Frank Sinatra and more. Eve the today’s generation, I mean our kids, like The Evergreens music, it keep ones soul in trim, I’d say. :-)

It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner, "What are you charged with?"

"Doing my Christmas shopping early", replied the defendant.

"That's no offense", said the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping?"

"Before the store opened."

Hallo, mmca. Thank you for visting my blog, even if you don't understand a fucking word of my foreign language.
It is rather difficult to translate, but I will try. It's a picture puzzle, as you no doubt have guessed. The serpent is a cobra. That is "cow good" in swedish. Hence:
"Maybe a cow would be good for you, Conrad. You seem disappointed. We have saved up some money to buy you a [lure, toy, whore]. Her name is Olga, descending from Siberia".

Please don't take it seriously! Conrad is just a made-up cybernic moose, and it is all a joke.

Gosh, 101 yrs - congrats!!!

Don't know if your question was answered - concerning Saint Lucia - but she was a young, Italian/Sicilian martyr and the only two countries celebrating her are Italy and Sweden. (Rather strand actually, since Sweden is not a Catholic country.)

You've got an intresting blog and I'll try to visit you again (if my shrink allows me to...)!

Take care!

Happy New Year to you, and I certainly hope your 'shrink' lets you use the 'puter' to communicate with me again -
Your Blog appears closed to me - with no Blog Name to click on - I'm rather new to this game, and have no tricks up my sleeve to solve computer problems -

Hope you are watching the World Junior Hockey Championship, taking place in Leksand,Sweden.
The Canadian Team is staying at the

Even though Russia tried to give you guys a fight, I think the game was completely in your hands all the time - impressing to beat the Russians yet again in an final (also a 3rd straight time!).


I'm sorry that my blog is completely in Swedish but perhaps I should have a go and try to write something in English...?

Swedish humor is a bit weird :-) .. I can understand that it sounds strange for you, when we trying to translate the words. They probebly don´t mean the same for you
the joke was ment 'small balls' as beans.

About brown beans, it´s also as a joke, people who eat them get their stomach upside down and you don´t want to be near the people though it smells more than shit :-)

But now when I look at the picture again I see the face of Mr Bean himself :-)

If you can talk me thru it, I would greatly appreciate it - in the new year I want music,and pictures,or cartoons to accompany my otherwise tedious blog. That is my resolution for the new year.
