Good Stuff

 

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. –Arthur Ashe

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. –John Lennon

Fall seven times and stand up eight. –Japanese Proverb

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that  we do not see the one that has been opened for us. –Helen Keller

Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see. –Confucius

Just read that 4,153,237 people got married last year, not to cause any trouble but shouldn’t that be an even number?
 
Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool. I gave him a glass of water.
 
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
 
If I had a dollar for every girl that found me unattractive, they would eventually find me attractive.
 
I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
 
When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body… men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.
 
A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight, live longer than the men who mention it.

Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?
 
America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won’t cross the street to vote.
 
You know that tingly little feeling you get when you like someone? That’s your common sense leaving your body.

My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We’ll see about that.
 
I think my neighbor is stalking me as she’s been googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night.

Money talks …but all mine ever says is good-bye.

The pharmacist asked me my birth date again today. I’m pretty sure she’s going to get me something.

On average, an American man will have sex two to three times a week. Whereas, a Japanese man will have sex only one or two times a year. This is very upsetting news to me. I had no idea I was Japanese.

The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married.   Think of this; Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course, Opie were all single. The only married person was Otis, and he was always drunk and in jail!

What an incredible piece of work

Follow the lyrics closely together with the photos. They synchronize beautifully to explain each verse. Although Don McClean only released the song in 1971, for those of us who grew up in the 40s, 50’s and 60’s this is a great piece with some very poignant moments in the history of those times.

 

And for those of you who did not, it’s a taste of what you missed. I knew that “American Pie” was the name of the plane in which Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and The Big Bopper were killed when it crashed in 1958 – and I knew the chorus about music dying on that day.

 

However, when the words are put together with pictures and film clips the song takes on more meaning. It took a lot of thought  to produce this and it brings back lots of memories and also makes the lyrics really come alive. Those were the days and we were very fortunate to grow up during that period of time.

Deep thoughts of a retired man

Cartoon Drawing Person Thought Stick Figure - Person Drawing ...

I worked in the yard today, and after doing so I sat down and had a glass of wine. 

The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.

My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, “Nothing.”

She then said, “That’s what you did yesterday!”

I replied, “I WASN’T DONE , SO I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW.”

The reason I said “nothing” instead of saying “just thinking” is because she then would have asked, “About what?” 

At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.

Finally I pondered an age old question:  “Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?”

Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they know?     

Well, after another glass of wine, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question. 

Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn’t really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. 

A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, “It might be nice to have another child.”     

On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, “You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts.”

WHEN AMERICA WAS KING….

The Roughnecks of Sherwood Forests

The Oil Patch Warrior - Picture of Rufford Abbey Country Park, Ollerton - Tripadvisor

“THEY WERE CALLED
‘THE GREATEST GENERATION’
FOR A REASON.”

-Sheila Tolley-

 

Seventy-nine years ago, a Band of Roughnecks went abroad on a top secret mission into Robin Hood’s stomping grounds to punch oil wells to help fuel England’s war machines.

It’s a story that should make any oilman or woman proud.

The year was 1943 and England was mired in World War II.  U-boats attacked supply vessels, choking off badly needed supplies to the island nation.  But oil was the commodity they needed the most as they warred with Germany.

A book “The Secret of Sherwood Forest:  Oil Production in England During World War II” by Guy Woodward & Grace Steele Woodward was published in 1973, and tells the obscure story of the American oil men who went to England to bore wells in a top secret mission in March 1943.

England had but one oil field, in Sherwood Forest of all places.  Its meager output of 300 barrels a day was literally a drop in the bucket of their requirement of 150,000 barrels a day to fuel their war machines.

 Then a top secret plan was devised: to send some Americans and their expertise to assist in developing the field.  Oklahoma based Noble Drilling Company, along with Fain-Porter signed a one year contract to drill 100 wells for England, merely for costs and expenses.

 42 drillers and roughnecks from Texas and Oklahoma, most in their teens and early twenties volunteered for the mission to go abroad.  The hands embarked for England in March 1943 aboard the HMS Queen Elizabeth.  Four National 50 drilling rigs were loaded onto ships but only three of them made landfall; the Nazi U-boats sank one of the rigs en route to the UK.

 The Brits’ jaws dropped as the Yanks began punching the wells in a week, compared to five to eight weeks for their British counterparts.  They worked 12 hour tours, 7 days a week and within a year, the Americans had drilled 106 wells and England oil production shot up from 300 barrels a day to over 300,000.

 The contract fulfilled, the American oil men departed England in late March 1944.  But only 41 hands were on board the return voyage.  Herman Douthit, a Texan derrick-hand was killed during the operation.  He was laid to rest with full military honors, and remains the only “civilian” to be buried at The American Military Cemetery in Cambridge.

 “The Oil Patch Warrior,” a seven foot bronze statue of a roughneck holding a four foot pipe wrench stands near Nottingham England to honor the American oil men’s assistance and sacrifice in the war.  A replica was placed in Ardmore Oklahoma in 2001.

 It is by no means a stretch to state that without this American mission, we might all be speaking German today.

 Special thanks to the American Oil and Gas Historical Society.

Milky Way Galaxy Doomed: Collision with Andromeda Pending
Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Z. Levay and R. van der Marel (STScI); T. Hallas; and A. Mellinger

Explanation: Will our Milky Way Galaxy collide one day with its larger neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy? Most likely, yes. Careful plotting of slight displacements of M31’s stars relative to background galaxies on recent Hubble Space Telescope images indicate that the center of M31 could be on a direct collision course with the center of our home galaxy. Still, the errors in sideways velocity appear sufficiently large to admit a good chance that the central parts of the two galaxies will miss, slightly, but will become close enough for their outer halos to become gravitationally entangled. Once that happens, the two galaxies will become bound, dance around, and eventually merge to become one large elliptical galaxy — over the next few billion years. Pictured here is a combination of images depicting the sky of a world (Earth?) in the distant future when the outer parts of each galaxy begin to collide. The exact future of our Milky Way and the entire surrounding Local Group of Galaxies is likely to remain an active topic of research for years to come.
