Monday Mayhem: PONDERISMS Part II

10· In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal. So, what is normal? Monday Mayhem

11· How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? Anything could go up in smoke with carelessness

12· Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out'? Thought it was the calf

13· If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him? Dunno

14· Why does an OB-GYN leave the room when women get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway? 'Up there' is their business, not what else is covered

15· If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? Testy

16· If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from? ask Johnson

17· Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup? Reading is spelled differently from slurping

18· Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster? Try it

19· Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle? Same as epoxy doesn't stick to the inside of the tube

20· Do you ever wonder why you gave someone your email address? No. I'm not unconscious of who I want to be in contact with.

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
