GO! Have a baby with your Grandson, Granny?

Posted on May 1st, 2010 by Jim

I awoke to SkyNews this morning reporting how a grandmother has shocked her friends and family after revealing she is having a baby with her own grandson. Pearl Carter, 72, says she has never been happier after beginning an incestuous relationship with her 26-year-old grandchild Phil Bailey.

The pensioner, from Indiana, US, is using her pension to pay a surrogate mother so they can have a child, reports New Zealand’s New Idea magazine.

She said: “I’m not interested in anyone else’s opinion. I am in love with Phil and he’s in love with me.

“Soon I’ll be holding my son or daughter in my arms and Phil will be the proud dad.”

Maybe they just want to be ‘forever young’ ?

“I never in a million years thought at 72 I’d be ‘pregnant’ and in love with my grandson.

“I make no apologies and I believe God’s given me a second chance.”

So, I ask you  for your comments here please while I take her out to the bingo – she loves it she does! Let them get on with it or punish them for what would some see as a crime? Do tell….

GO! Give the church a break?

Posted on April 25th, 2010 by Jim

The Pope is due to visit Britain later this year and I wonder what sort of reception he will get.

 The Government has been plunged into a major diplomatic storm after Foreign Office officials circulated an offensive memo mocking the Pope’s forthcoming visit to Britain. In the document, staff who were asked to propose ideas for the ‘ideal’ visit suggested Benedict XVI could launch a new range of ‘Benedict’ condoms, bless a gay marriage or back a Miss Developing World beauty contest.

Sources in Rome said the document also proposed that the Pope might sing a duet with the Queen to raise money for charity. The pair are due to meet during the Pontiff’s visit in September. The memo, which has dismayed Church leaders in Britain, is also understood to suggest that the leader of the world’s one billion Roman Catholics could apologise for the Spanish Armada, reverse his ban on women priests and visit an old people’s home.

Maybe the design of this stained glass window should be re-thought:

Comments welcomed on Brand Benedict and I ask you how would you receive him and if you find the church INSPIRATIONAL or FRIGHTENING? Do tell…..

Go! Save the World!

Posted on April 23rd, 2010 by irishcoffee

Yesterday was Earth Day, and today I offer my first post as a GSTC contributor:

Each and every time I unplug my Sony Ericsson C905 eight mega pixel camera mobile phone from its charger, a message pops up on its big TFT screen. It tells me to ‘unplug the charger from the socket as well, in order to save energy’. I duly oblige, of course. But I then start wondering if I will soon be getting messages instructing me to ‘have shorter telephone conversations’ or ‘send fewer texts’, or that I must ‘try to take more care of this fragile handset so that it does not need to be replaced so often’..  Well, they want to save the world. Don’t they?

Let’s take some stock here! What is this “Save the World” mania really all about? The story runs something like this. We’ve been very greedy for a long time. But now we’ve caught ourselves red-handed, with egg on our face, so to speak. Basically we’ve been busy consuming more than our fair share of the world’s resources, acting as if the world was a kind of bottomless sack of Christmas gifts. For the sake of ourselves and for our children, it makes sense to be concerned about saving it, along with its gifts.

PlanetMe

Political parties, charities – all sorts of organisations and companies – are keen to shape themselves around this one seemingly wholesome, faultless motto: “Save the world!”…And why not? It seems we’re all buying into it. From running our washing machines at 30 degrees to recycling our coke tins, this is an ideology we’re all proud to represent.

“Save the World!”… I mean, who wouldn’t want to be on board such an enlightened and practical ideology? Well, let’s ask a very practical question: How effective will this revolution be in actually helping to preserve our planet? At least some seem to realise that perhaps they don’t really need to be buying so many clothes in the first place, or guzzling down so many soft drinks. On the whole, however, aren’t we flattering ourselves by overestimating how badly the world needs us? As for our grand “Save the World!” idea, has that not now become simply a trendy slogan that we merrily slap onto our consumer lifestyles, so giving us a bunch of “alternative”, guilt-free ways of ravaging our natural environment?

Iceland volcano vs the Black dragon?

Posted on April 21st, 2010 by Jim

BERLIN – Air controllers lifted all restrictions on German airspace today, paving the way for more flights into one of Europe‘s busiest airports. Airlines announced they had lost at least $1.7 billion and criticized government actions during the volcanic ash crisis.

Here’s footage from NASA showing the scale of it:

I then youtubed ‘Iceland Volcano’ for more exciting footage (at least with music) and found this:

Go! Arrest the Pope

Posted on April 15th, 2010 by Lib

pope_america_07

Could this be the Pope waving goodbye to the Vatican?

Possibly, thanks to Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchins who are planning a legal ambush to have Pope Benedict XVI arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

If you aren’t aware of what the Popes crimes are alleged to be, then you can read about them here but basically, he has been accused of a child abuse cover up involving priests in America in the 80′s.

Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, is hoping to exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998. Dawkins said ‘This is a man whose first instinct when his priests are caught with their pants down is to cover up the scandal and damn the young victims to silence’.

His partner in vigilantiasm, Christopher Hitchens, also an atheist author said ‘This man is not above or outside the law. The institutionalised concealment of child rape is a crime under any law and demands not private ceremonies of repentance or church-funded payoffs, but justice and punishment’.

So, are they right? I mean, if you take religion out of the way, these are serious allegations (not “petty gossip” as one dim Cardinal put it) that deserve to be, at the very least, investigated. Just because he allegedly holds the highest position within the church and is arguably God’s voice on earth, doesn’t mean he can’t be made accountable does it?

Hundreds of children have been abused, they deserve a voice, and an answer too don’t they?

All comments welcomed please……….Amen.

Cletus Take The Reel by Tim Hawkins

I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat
On a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat
Well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade
It’d been a long hard day

Felt a tug on the line and I didn’t pay attention it was spinning way to fast
Before I knew it I was staring at a ten pound shiny bass
When I tried to pull the fish inside I pulled a muscle in my upper thigh
I was so scared I threw my rod up in the air

Cletus take the reel
Take it from my hand
Cause I can’t do it on my own
I’m letting go and I need your help bad
And if you don’t my fish is gone
Oh Cletus take the reel

Oh I’m letting go
And I need your help bad
And if you don’t my fish is gone
On this boat I’m on
Cletus take the reel
Oh take it take it from me

GO! Smell the full moon! Do you feel it?

Posted on April 2nd, 2010 by Jim

Hi from Doo-bye where a full moon is in full effect tonight. I’m popping out (matron) to Palm Island to get some sand between my toes and lemon between my ice at a full moon party.

After all it is a marvellous night for moondance:

So what is it with full moons – do you ‘feel’ them, act differently or is it just another day.
