Nine Words Women Use


(1) Fine : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right
and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If
she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five
minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game
before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing : This
is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your
toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This
is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This
is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men.
A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting
her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3
for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That’s Okay: This is
one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay
means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will
pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks : A woman
is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want
to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that
is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re
welcome’.. That will bring on a ‘whatever’).

(8) Whatever : Is a
woman’s way of saying…Go to Hell…

(9) Don’t worry about it, I got it : Another
dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to
do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a
man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to # 3.

Love This Doctori


Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life.  Is this true?
A: Your heart only good for so many beats, and that it… Don’t waste on exercise..  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap. 

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A:  No, not at all.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy is distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two bodies, your ratio two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can’t think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy is: No pain…good!

Q:  Aren’t fried foods bad for you?

A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food are fried these day in vegetable oil…  In fact, they permeated by it.  How could getting more vegetable be bad for you?!? 

QWill sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.  You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach. 

Q:  Is chocolate bad for me? 
A:  Are you crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around!

Q:  Is swimming good for your figure? 
A:  If swimming good for your figure, explain whale to me..

Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle? 
A:  Hey!  ‘Round’ is shape!  Well… I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

Remember Grasshopper:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways – Coffee in one hand – chocolate in the other – body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO-HOO, what a ride!!”
       Master Chen


For  those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health  It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans..

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Glad to report that everyone is safe

If you have followed the news last night or live in the Louisville Area you know that we were hit with storms yesterday.  We are glad to report that everyone is safe.  One of the longest touch downs of the tornadoes was very close to many of our family members.  Lucky only power outages and trees down.  It appears that one tree hit a house but again no one was hurt.

Long Awaited Update

Okay, so I haven’t been really good about updating the blog. Why might you ask? Well to be honest it was because my web server got hacked. So instead of spending days trying to fix it I moved to a different host. Good news is that many of the issues I was spending hours or even days on are now fixed.

So the move took a lot of time from one host to the other but then we hit my busy season at work and that took all my free time.

Good news is that I am back and going again. Hope all is well with all your family and we will see you next post!

Dog Logic




 The reason a dog has so many friends is that

he wags his tail instead of his tongue.


There is no psychiatrist in the world

like a puppy licking your face.

-Ben Williams

A dog is the only thing on earth

that loves you more than he loves himself.

-Josh Billings

The average dog is a nicer person

than the average person.

-Andy Rooney

Anybody who doesn’t know what soap tastes like

never washed a dog.

– Franklin P. Jones

If your dog is fat,

you aren’t getting enough exercise


My dog is worried about the economy

because Alpo is up to $3.00 a can.

that’s almost $21.00 in dog money.

-Joe Weinstein

 If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous,

he will not bite you;

that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

-Mark Twain

Dogs are not our whole life,

but they make our lives whole.

-Roger Caras

If you think dogs can’t count,

try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket

and then give him only two of them.

-Phil Pastoret
