New Year's Resolution

Just received the following in an email from my friend, and thought I ought to share it for all of those of us who like the occasional glass of wine


I just read an article on the dangers of heavy drinking....Scared the cr*p out of me.  
So that's it! - This year, no more reading.


This year started out with me managing to get a chest infection, which is still refusing to go completely away.  Have still got a nasty cough.

The knee is improving slowly, although it reacted badly to a dose of sister shopping yesterday.  I have three sisters and from time to time we meet up for a day of shopping and chatting.  We hit the shops as they open for coffee, shop, have lunch, shop, have afternoon tea, shop and then generally get thrown out of shops as they are closing.  I have to confess that yesterday we were all done by 2.00 as we had Mum with us as well, and if anything I am slower than her at the moment. We went to Salisbury, which is a lovely place and were lucky that the rain just drizzled so we did not get too wet.  One of the few towns (oops cities) left that does not have an indoor shopping mall - thank goodness, I much prefer getting out into the street away from the heat of the shops and for a breath of fresh air.

Don't eat chicken

This came to me in an email from my daughter today


Don't eat chicken sandwiches, no matter what.....

A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends.
Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch. They discovered that
they both brought chicken sandwiches every day!
This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he
noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich.
He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?"
She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it."

 "Why?" he asked.
She pointed to her lap and said

"Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!"
"Let me see" he said.
"Okay" and she pulled up her skirt.
He looked and said, "That's right. You are!
Better not eat any more chicken."
He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanutbutter.
He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches,

I'm starting to get feathers down there too!"
She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her.


She said "Oh, my God, it's too late for you!
You've already got the neck and the  GIBLETS
