That Kid With a Moth on his Nose is Now 18

pastedgraphic-1

I remember in 2010 how I wrote a Poem called ‘That smile’
Seems like yesterday but it has been quite a while

It was about my grandson Jayden who is such a pleasure
My pride in him is immense, I could never be able to measure

Today is his birthday, the years have gone too fast
I so wanted his funny young innocent boy time to last

But alas he is now a young man
And of course naturally I am his biggest fan

He is indépendant, honest, respectful and delightful in all ways
I so wish him a great birthday and abundance of wealth health and happiness for the rest of his days

That kid with a moth on his nose is now eighteen
For me, how blessed for 18 years have I been

Oxybenzone, a chemical found in many sunscreens is not only bad for your skin it has been found to be killing coral reefs and other sea creatures. Because of sunscreen used while swimming the Oxybenzone harms the DNA of both adult coral and larval young.

Good Laugh for Today

Just received this via email from a friend. I laughed my Arse off.

If you’ve ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this

Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, “How much money do you make a week?”

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, “I make £250 a week. Why?”

The CEO said, “Wait right here.” He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy £1,000 in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay. Now GET OUT and don’t come back.”

Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?”

From across the room a voice said, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”
