BRING ON THE SUB. RIGINAL.

Capt. Horatio Sub here. Fought in the battle of 'Sink n Swim'. If I've told leading 'unable to' seaman Knott that once I've told him a baker's dozen times," close the hatch BEFORE we dive." And that's how we ended up S and S right up the creek from whence we launched nuclear-powered big 'Bertie'. Subs, what do we know about them? Not the foot long ones. I'm talking about the Collins Class type. 300 metres of fistic grey fury. A killing machine, or should I say a drowning machine, especially when the hatch is left open!

Why don't I start from the... Read More

“Laughter is the language of the soul.” ~Pablo Neruda

The second greatest way to bond with another person is to laugh together. (The greatest way, of course, is to get drunk together – which usually leads to laughter, anyway.) When we laugh together, our souls are recognizing a kindred spirit, communicating an unspoken shared understanding.

Laughter is pure, joyous, playful, spontaneous, and free – as the soul, at its best, should be. Laughter is an expression of the soul delighting in its existence.

As a tribute to the power of laughter, I wrote a poem dedicated... Read More

Throughout the ages, people have wondered…who is the better sex? Is it the woman or the man? Who is usually right in an argument? Who is usually wrong? Well, I found this humorous little story / quiz that, I think, will help to answer this age-old question…at least a little bit. Enjoy!

The Perfect Man and the Perfect Woman

Once upon a time, a perfect man and a perfect woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect.

One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve, this perfect couple was driving their perfect car... Read More

Dear Ely,

I need anger management help. Stupid little things set me off, and I blow my top like a mailbox packed with M-80s. When people make innocent mistakes or do ordinary things that I personally find annoying, I erupt in a chaotic firestorm of abusive language, nonsensical threats, and physical intimidation. For example, yesterday a colleague of mine was humming that horrible song “MMMBop” in my vicinity. Terrible as it is, it’s a catchy tune, and it got stuck in my head. I was PISSED! I aggressively whirled on the poor little woman and screamed in her face, “Shut up,... Read More

Dear Ely,

My family is driving me crazy. They all want me to get married, like immediately, and they won’t stop riding my ass about it. The pressure starts at the top, with my grandmother. She keeps telling me that when she was my age, she was already married with three children. Once she starts, my aunts (my mom has four sisters) all chime in. “Are you dating anyone special?” “When are going to settle down and start a family?” It’s gone from funny to uncomfortable to really annoying, and now I try to avoid family gatherings just to escape the harassment. But my mom is... Read More

Laughter triggers physical changes in the body by strengthening our immune system, boosting energy, diminishing pain and stress.

“Your sense of humor is one of the most powerful tools you have to make certain that your daily mood and emotional state support good health.”

~ Paul E. McGhee, Ph.D.

Yep, laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict.

Humor lightens our burdens, inspires hope and keeps us in reality.

Laughter is free.

Laughter is powerful.

Laughter is contagious and addictive.

After years of struggling against my basic intellectual wiring, I have finally accepted that there are large black holes in my brain that deal with technology and even simple mechanics. I am content to manage our large home, renovate, garden and landscape and write. I do not care one whit that the kids laugh in disbelief because I cannot figure out the T.V. or cell phone.

Case in point.

I am a woman who has done little travelling. After 12 hours of travelling across three-time zones, on three different airplanes, connecting with a shuttle service and making it to my parents condominium... Read More
