Anzac Day

Anzac  Day …. Once more  I feel compelled to  write on this , as yet again one  more time I am heartbroken to see so much disrespect  and outright damage to the Anzacs  or their  memorials . Once more I see that  idiots  have not used what passes for their brains and done  disgusting things  to people who we owe our very existence to , people who willingly  went to fight to save us and our way of life . Sometimes these brave souls  even lied about their ages so they could go and fight , it meant so much to them to protect us and their country  from such evil enemies  they thought nothing of the risk to their own lives.

They did not even stop for 1 minute  to think , hey maybe  I might get killed here it might be  me who ends up in a body bag. All they can think of is to stop these people from putting them into slavery or worse  , if they don’t stop them before they get to our country who else can  ? Someone  had to do it and these brave men and women  went  out to do it as soon as they heard , no stopping to think of what if….just get out get over there and  stop these people  or our whole country is forfeit . They knew without doubt or fear that it could be risky  but it did not even slow them down much less stop them  they went quickly to defend us. Not knowing the horrors they were letting themselves in for ,even had they known  I doubt  that would have stopped them .

So how in the name of all that’s holy can these idiots do the things they do ? Have they not realised that if these  people had not saved our land and us , then more than likely they would not even be alive ? Their parents would not possibly even met nor had  a chance to marry and have children , they would most likely have been in labour camps  or worse if either of the enemies  that wanted our land had won . It is only by their doing and their bravery  that idiots like these have  the very breath they breathe now  and the life  they now live . The things they have the work they do the people they love  and countless other things are only theirs  for the  having and doing  because of the brave soldiers .Have they no respect at all  ? No thankfulness for what others did for them ?

So instead of saying  they were just being brutal and  nasty how about realising that  they were just defending all of us and our country , so that we did not end up in  concentration camps or worse . Also they need to stop and work out  who started it all , we did not start any of the wars we got involved in  , and America  only got involved because of  Pearl Harbour  they also did not start anything . So if you want to go off about brutality  and force look at the facts , look at the ones who started it , who wanted what was not theirs . If they had stayed over their own side and in their own countries a whole lot of people who  went willingly  would not have died .

We should all look at the 1 day a year that we put aside to honour  our soldiers as the best day ever because if they had not saved us there is no telling  where we would be right now. I myself  do not want to even begin to think  of what might have been  if the side that wanted to take us over had won. If we had not fought back , if we had just let them in . what then ? Now it is getting like that again  with all this ” let them in ”  they are doing with the terrorists ,are we heading for more of the same  ? Did our soldiers die for nothing ? Will  they not wake up till it is them or their own children   who are being beheaded ? They are deliberately turning a blind eye to the danger , and trusting people who will not assimilate  because they want to overtake. They are just doing things a bit different , not coming in with an army they are sneaking in and they are letting them.

So instead of being a total  idiot and a disrespectful  moron  try to think and realise what was done for you and what might have happened to you  if they had not done it . It is  no hardship to honour the soldiers  on just 1 day a year that is not too much to ask . They certainly deserve that much after how much  was done for them it is only fair . If someone does something nice for you do you not  then try to at some point try to return the  favour ? I know I sure do  it comes with knowing respect , and anyone who has trouble with this obviously does not know respect . Mind you these days it seems  that very few do know what respect is  and it maybe that we have not taught the younger generation well enough .

Anzac Day May we never ever forget …….

Brains

Brains …. You  know that 1 little thing inside our  thick skulls ? That 1 little  thing that controls everything we do  and say, everything we feel ? That 1 little thing that is better and more powerful than any computer  , can do so much more than any machine  man ever  made  ? Yes  that 1  .. the 1 that I am convinced almost all people on earth have no idea how to use , some do not even seem to have 1 , but they do they just don’t know what it is for  or how to use it properly , some don’t even know how to use it at all  never mind to use it the right way , this is more than obvious  when you see some of the  just plain ridiculous things that some people say and do .

All you have to do is look around you or watch TV  or  read the papers , it becomes very, very clear that people just do not know what the brain  is nor how to use it . How many times  have you  seen in papers and on TV people killing themselves or others by doing the most stupid things you could  ever think of , and mostly not even in the name of science  trying to prove a theory . Mostly all they are proving  is that the perfectly working brain they have has not been used , not even consulted  and then off they go to do the things that end up  quite often costing someone an  arm or a leg ( literally ) not having once used the magnificent brain they have . Yes it is a magnificent brain , you cannot blame the brain  for the stupidities people do on the brain , blame it on the people who do not even bother to use them , they are there to be used but mostly go unused and ignored.

There  are so many things  we see on a daily basis prove it over and over again  that people either do not know they have a brain  or that it works or that they should use it .Makes you wonder why they think they have 1 if they never use it or  intend to use it   , maybe they just think , lol if that is even possible with them , that if they do use it , it will just get in their way of doing whatever stupid thing they are going to do or say . So as a result there are so many things said and done that never ever would be  said and done if they had but used their brain  , the brain  that would have said  Hey !! stop that do not do or say that or you will cause much pain  to you and others  ..

So here we have the most powerful thing in the universe  that yes  can solve any and all problems  ( mostly ) if they  were only used  , and used correctly  they have the answer to all the crap we get ourselves into , crap that we never would have been in  if we had but used the poor brain that is just sitting there ( probably playing solitaire  because it’s bored ) but we didn’t  hence more trouble than we need ever have gotten into . So much pain and heartache  could have been prevented if people  just realised  hey wait a minute , I have a brain I will use it  , if that happened more often there would be a lot less trouble in our worlds  and we would be a lot better off in every way . ( will that ever happen  ? lol  )

So how on earth do we get people to start using their brains  ? If after all these years  they still do not know they have them or how to use them what on earth  do we have to do to make them wake up ?? It is no good hitting them over the head , no matter how much you want to , as that is just punishing the poor brain , and all it wants is to be used , after all that is what it is there for . Personally I have no idea , the more  I see of people  the more I am amazed that some of them are even still alive , the stupidity they  show every single day just astonishes me , how have they not killed themselves by now ?

I mean if someone gives you a gift is it not rude  to ignore it  ? Pretend it does not work ? I think that is very very rude  but most people it seems do not even think this  far and so ignore the most important thing  they were given when they were born . Tell me would you  , if given , say a car  , would you then say ok I know the brakes are there but they don’t need to be used so I wont . Can you imagine  the results if we did that  ? Well so many people  are like that who refuse to use their brains , they are just like a car crash waiting to happen , the only thing not known is when or where it will all come to a  crashing end.,  or  how many people will get hurt when it does.

So somehow , someway , we have to try to get through to all the great masses that will not use the best thing they have to use   , to realise they have them for a very good reason  and no that’s not just to use as a balance weight  to keep the body upright . That by using them they can not only help themselves but others too and make life a whole lot easier for all concerned . How we do this is something  I confess right now I have no idea how to do , but someone needs to work out how before too many more of these idiots  get killed or worse get others killed . * sigh good luck with that *

Perfectly Matched

Perfectly  matched  …. In every way  , in every way we  think , things we do , things we want to do , places we have been and places we want to go , even the things we do not realise we do together , so  attuned  to each other that yes , we do finish each others  sentences  at times  , lol yes it does happen and usually results in  much laughter.  Do you know any other couple like that  ? A couple who just fit so well  together  ( no not that ..lol minds out of gutter please  ) You are both going about your day , doing what you do and all of a sudden you find yourself giggling because something has reminded you of  your other half and you know very well  just what he would say and you automatically  say it to yourself  just as if he or she was there with you .

So  many things that  the longer you are together the more you seem to meld , the more you seem to almost become the other as your  thinking and the  way you  do things  just becomes more and more the same . This  is not a bad thing   I think it is a great thing as it shows how well you are suited to  each other  so  it means  you hardly ever  fight because there is little or no friction  as you already know how each other  will think on any given occasion or  anything else . It makes things just go  that much more smoothly knowing you don’t have to stress about things because you already know how the other half will react , makes for a great relationship and eases a lot of stress in a relationship.( lol and saves you from wanting to kill )  He’s lucky  at that  lol .

So imagine if there are small children  how much better life will be for the children if mum and dad are so well matched that the stress level is down to almost zero  and the  children  have nothing but love to help them grow . Even  in marriages where there are no small children  you still need this relaxed and much better way of life  , because even the best of marriages will break up under duress if the relationship itself  is rocky . These  relationships will  only get better  where the  husband and the wife are so well matched  , it just seems to take the heat right off  and therefore  makes the stress diminish  and that’s all good then  …lol * sorry dear *

Another thing that works so well for such couples is the way they can run the house , the way they can plan holidays , and the places they can go  for nights out and a bit of relaxation . As they think so much alike choosing  the places they go  is easy as they both love the same things , even the simple things like helping with chores or being the one to go do the shopping is all so much easier  when both think the same , well almost the same  so each knows what to get  or where to go . Helping each other also becomes an automatic thing  it just happens usually without any questions needing to be asked . This alone makes for a wonderful relationship  within  the  marriage  and makes problem solving  a lot easier  than if there is too much in the relationship  they do not agree on.

It often makes me wonder  if most people even wait to see if they have this same oneness together , and if so  how are there so  many divorces , or fights or  even * shudder * murders ?? Maybe if the couple had taken a little more time to really get to know each other then these things would not happen .It seems though  that people are in too much of a hurry to wait , they just want what everyone else has and to be like everyone else , so do not take the time needed to really think it all through and make sure it will work . A pity it is like this as usually it is the resulting  children that will bear the brunt of a miss match.Then they rush into a marriage that is fraught with trouble right from the start .

So yes me and hubby might be perceived  to be  ” nuts  ” lol that is fine with us as we are the first to admit this , we are  nuts and love every bit of it  , makes the  marriage way more fun that it would be  otherwise. Sometimes I think if anyone walked in on us sometimes  they might think we need  medical help , lol,  as when we are  bouncing off each other ( no not that again ya dirty sods lol )  as in watching  TV  and knowing other lines that fit  in and we say them out loud  and much laughter ensues  , yes we are nuts and we are proud of it  as it means we are still very  much in love. If the laughter ever stops  or the teasing then I know we will be in big trouble , but hopefully the teasing and laughter  will never stop.     It is a very big part of our relationship  and we love every bit of it , the laughter keeps us strong in each other  and keeps us relaxed together.

So if you are thinking  of marriage please at least take time to make sure you will be happy together  that you will blend with each other and that it is not  just a passing fancy . Taking the time before you get married is the best way and hopefully  prevents  the splitting up a bit later on which only hurts everyone involved. Marriage should not be looked on as a status symbol  , a thing to get to be able to say yes I have that , it is not like that at all as it involves way more than that , it is not now and never will be a status symbol .

 

Do you ever get the feeling that you’re being watched? Because if it’s bothering you, I’ll stop.

Self Inflicted

Self inflicted … How many of us really think about how many things and trouble that we get into is all  ” self inflicted  ”  what this means to spell it out is  we did it to ourselves , we have no one but ourselves to blame for whatever the situation is mostly . I do accept as we all should that sometimes others  do things to us  that are not our fault  so we have to be careful and  not just blindly blame people  for things, that occasionally  is just not their fault , it does happen  so always be careful before you judge someone .

Now having cleared that up let us  explore some of the  ” self inflicted ” things we get ourselves into  intentional or not , and this can be all sorts of things . We can decide  not to take advice on a project we are undertaking  and then  when it all goes wrong we only have ourselves to blame , likewise  if we do not maybe stop to ask directions  so we get horribly lost  who then can we blame  ? Clue for you ,look in the mirror  lol yep  you did it to yourself , if you had taken time to ask directions you would not be lost , makes sense to me and it is also funny that men are the most stubborn about asking directions .

Then  of course there is my silly hubby ( sorry dear  lol )  everytime he looks at me as if to say something about me or what he thinks I have done I just show him  my wedding ring  in my own way _|_   * giggles *  and remind him it is all ” self inflicted ”  as he chased me not the other way around . He started it so now  I have all I need to annoy him  as often and as much as  I want to , so there  😛 That’s my story and  I’m sticking to it . Mind you there are times when he does the same back to me so it is pretty much even on that score  lol .Told him he was being silly, told him  not to do it but he did it anyway lol , all his own fault , he should have listened now he is stuck with me  ……Giggles …

Yet 1 more thing we  ” self inflict ” is when we either eat  or drink way too  much then have to take the consequences  , and it is amazing how many times we do this to ourselves too  we never seem to learn do we  ? Also the same can be said for those who work all the time  and give themselves  little or no relaxation time so we  do not relax anywhere near as much  as we should. Then of course this can lead to health  problems  because we do need to take time out for our own well being . That has been proved way too many times  but it would surprise  you how many people do not  take the time they need.

I wonder  how many  other ways  we ” self inflict ”  things on ourselves ? Why do we not learn? it just makes me laugh the amount of times we do these things then stop and wonder how they happened  . Lol  if we took advice  or stopped to think  before we did  these things chances are we would not do half as many silly things as we do . Somethings I admit yes , are done on the spur of the moment  but not everything that gets us in trouble , a lot of the time we do have the time  to stop and think about it but we just don’t …maybe 1 day we will learn but  I very much doubt it , not going to happen anytime soon I think .

It reminds me of all those people who say things like ” hold my beer and watch this ” then to see the silliest things happen that would not have happened if there had been  any thought  about what they were about to do . How many times do we see posts on faceache of  so many of these  things ? Of people doing  idiotic  things , getting hurt , and wondering why , amazing isn’t it ? Makes you wonder  how many of them  are still alive ? Do they even have a brain ? If so do they even know what it is for and  how much trouble they can save themselves if they just learn to use it  ? Again  I very much doubt it or we would not see so many  stupid things done to  themselves and others , maybe 1 day …lol ..yeah right …

So next time you do or are about to do something take a minute or 3 to actually think about  it so that if it does   not  go wrong  you  cannot then say  it was  ” self inflicted”  because  you actually thought about it , lol, might save you lots of pain  if you do start to at least try to think , lol it shouldn’t hurt too much , not after a while anyway , it might  at the start but it gets better with more use , try it you might even like it   who knows ?  Wonders will never cease  you know that , so go on be brave and try thinking for a change  …

That awkward moment when you’re having an awkward moment, wondering if anyone else can see you are having an awkward moment.
