There is a nurse here in London that works at one of the cities three hospitals!
A while back she was looking after a patient and tripped over some cables and stuff that was under and around his hospital bed. (Electrical cables, heart monitor cables, oxygen lines, i.v.’s, other medical stuff and droopy linen, medical trays etc. etc.)
Now, instead of being reprimanded for her clumsiness and lack of care on her job ………………, she complained about the safety hazards, and got a settlement of $62,000-
(I think I’m in the wrong business!)


It’s amazing how our brain can play tricks on us folks.

imagesA0P19L9SAs I was looking at a picture of Louise Fletcher for the hospital story, I was struck by how good looking she was in real life.–>

Then, as soon as I got to a picture of her as Nurse Ratched from the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” she immediately turned into a wicked old hag because I hated that character so much!

(Sorry Louise, but Nurse Ratched is a typecast you’re going to have to live with for the rest of your life!)


Just read an article that said there was a correlation between diabetes and depression!

Of course there is ………., if ya get diabetes, you’re bound to get depressed about it!


Here’s one for the books: HOUSTON, Pa. — A western Pennsylvania man arrested for cursing in front of police has filed a lawsuit saying his right to free speech was violated.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper ( ) reported Thursday that Richard Pustovrh was arguing with his employers in September 2012 and they called the police. Pustovrh lives in Houston, 30 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

police21A complaint says Pustovrh used an obscenity to voice his frustration after a Canonsburg police officer warned him not to.

He was handcuffed and later found guilty of disorderly conduct and obscene language. The obscene-language charge was withdrawn when he appealed.

Pustovrh wants a declaration the police actions were unconstitutional. He’s seeking punitive damages of $100,000. (Good for him folk’s, this isn’t primary school, or whatever else ya want to call it …………………….., this is real life and threatening to figuratively wash someone’s mouth out with soap just doesn’t cut it!)

Canonsburg Police Chief R.T. Bell can’t be reached for comment.

And speaking of Florida, and cops and robbers: A Florida inmate is facing additional charges after authorities say he received a marijuana delivery while working on a roadside work crew.

Parell Seay, 22, was working with other prisoners just north of Fort Pierce Tuesday when someone drove by and tossed him a small bag of marijuana, the St. Lucie Sheriff’s Office said.

police13Authorities say the driver of a black Dodge Charger drove by and tossed the packet, containing one gram of marijuana, which was picked up by Seay.

As officers approached Seay, he tried to toss the bag, but it hit a deputy, authorities said. It later tested positive for marijuana.

Seay, from Tampa, had been assigned to a Florida Department of Corrections work camp from Martin County.

Seay claimed he didn’t know who tossed the drugs but admitted he was going to bring it back to the Martin County facility where he is being held, the sheriff’s office said.

He called it “a D.O.C. thing,” meaning that someone previously in state custody tossed the item to someone currently in state custody, the sheriff’s office said.

Now Seay is facing charges of resisting an officer with violence, evidence tampering, smuggling contraband and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana.


But, that’s not the only news from the lock-up in Florida, bunky!


JAPAN — Sure, “Frozen” is a breakaway hit, folks.

But was the movie good enough to break up a marriage?

dancing8Apparently a man has written a Japanese marriage advice forum that his marriage has crumbled because his wife can’t “Let It Go” when it comes to the Disney flick!

He admitted to her that the movie was O.K. – but nothing to rave about - and she replied that there must be something wrong with him as a human being!

(The way we see it, boys and girls, it’s a case of “take you wife to a different movie……………….., or get a different wife!”)


Just saw a headline on the Internet that said: “Woman accused of kidnapping newborn in Quebec hospital declared fit!”

Well, that’s a matter of opinion folks….., from the pictures I saw she could stand to lose another few pounds!


North Korea has been pushing to promote tourism as part of efforts to earn badly needed foreign currency, but the country is also extremely sensitive about how visitors act while in the country.

Today’s announcement came as tension on the Korean Peninsula remains high with North Korea keeping up rhetoric against the U.S. and South Korea following its series of missile and rocket launches earlier this year. The North’s state media have also unleashed racist and sexist slurs against U.S. and South Korean leaders.

Here’s how they “promote” tourism!

An American tourist is being held in North Korea reportedly for leaving a Bible in a hotel room as he was leaving the country, according to news reports in North and South Korea. He was identified as Jeffrey Edward Fowle.

“The U.S. citizen, who entered the DPRK (North Korea) on April 29 as a tourist, engaged in activities that were in breach of DPRK’s laws,” the country’s official Korean Central News Agency said today. South Korea’s Yonhap News quoting sources in North Korea said he had left a Bible in the hotel upon departure.

(There wasn’t this much fuss over a bible since some guy named Gideon tried to leave a whole bunch in hotel rooms a few years back!)

He is the third American currently held in North Korea.

In April, North Korea said it had detained a 24-year-old American for improper behavior while he was being processed to enter the country as a tourist. He was identified as Miller Matthew Todd, possibly putting his surname first. It said he entered the country on April 10 with a tourist visa, but tore it up and shouted that he wanted to seek asylum. The brief report said he chose North Korea “as a shelter.” (They can keep this guy!)

North Korea has been holding a Korean-American missionary Kenneth Bae since November 2012. Bae was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for what the North says were hostile acts against the state.

Last year, American tourist Merrill Newman, an 85-year-old Korean War veteran, was held for a month as he tried to leave North Korea after a visit. North Korean finally let Newman leave after the American apologized for training and advising a U.S.-led North Korean partisan unit during the Korean War.

Newman, of Palo Alto, Calif., was pulled from a plane Oct. 26 while preparing to leave the communist nation after a 10-day tour. Newman, a former finance executive, has a heart condition and his family had been worried about his health since he was detained while trying to leave the country on a tourist visa.


A tribute to D-Day is on the TV in the other room, and someone is playing the Bagpipes!

(A Scotsman is playing the Bagpipes, and a drunk walks up to him and says: “If ya stopped squeezing it the poor thing wouldn’t scream like that!”)


Since this is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we would like to leave you with these pictures of yesterday and today!
