Vocie from the Friendly Side

After losing his parents, this 3 year old orangutan was so depressed he wouldn't eat and didn't respond to any medical treatments. The veterinarians thought he would surely die from sadness. The zoo keepers found an old sick dog on the grounds in the park at the zoo where the orangutan lived and took the dog to the animal treatment center. The dog arrived at the same time the orangutan was there being treated. The 2 lost souls met and have been inseparable ever since.

The orangutan found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new found friend. They are together 24 hours a day in all their activities.

They live in Northern California where swimming is their favorite past time, although Roscoe (the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water and needs his friend's help to swim.

Together they have discovered the joy and laughter in life and the value of friendship.

They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.

Long Live Friendship!!!!!!!

I don't know......some say life is too short, others say it is too long, but I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don't touch the hearts of others.......while it lasts!

Things you can do with Windows 7

I've been using Windows 7 in one form or another since the beta was released and I've found it to be very good. One of the feature you might want to explore is the Gadgets. These Gadgets sit on your desktop and provide weather, news, radio stations and other easy access to customize your desktop.

You can get to Gadgets by right-clicking on the desktop in any blank area and clicking "Gadgets." This will bring up a window where you can choose what gadgets you want to use. You can just click on the gadget you want and drag it off to the desktop. From there, you can move it any place you want. Most of them have options where you can modify the gadget. Just right-click on the gadget and select Options.

For example, you can change stations on the BBC Radio audio player. I usually listen to World Service. Try them all and see what's playing.

Attack of the Funny Blondes

Two blondes were going to Disneyland . They were driving on the Interstate when they saw the sign that said Disneyland LEFT. They started crying and turned around and went home.
Two blondes living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench talking, and one blonde says to the other, 'Which do you think is farther away... Florida or the moon?' The other blonde turns and says 'Helloooooooooo, can you see Florida ?????'
A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the
mechanic it died. After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.
She says, 'What's the story?'
He replies, 'Just crap in the carburetor'
She asks, 'How often do I have to do that?'
A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks her very nicely if he could see her license.
She replied in a huff, 'I wish you guys would get your act together.
Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me to show it to you!'
There's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees another blonde on the opposite bank 'Yoo-hoo!' she shouts, 'How can I get to the other side?'
The second blonde looks up the river then down the river and shouts back, 'You ARE on the other side.'
A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it.
'Impossible!' says the doctor.. 'Show me.'
The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left shoulder and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream.
The doctor said, 'You're not really a redhead, are you?
'Well, no' she said, 'I'm actually a blonde.'
'I thought so,' the doctor said, 'Your finger is broken.'
A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting!
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, 'PULL OVER!'
'NO!' the blonde yelled back, 'IT'S A SCARF!'
A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day.
The Russian said, 'We were the first in space!'
The American said, 'We were the first on the moon!'
The Blonde said, 'So what? We're going to be the first on the sun!' The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads.
'You can't land on the sun, you idiot! You'll burn up!' said the Russian.
To which the Blonde replied, 'We're not stupid, you know. We're going at night!'
A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night... It was her turn. She rolled the dice and she landed on Science & Nature. Her question was, 'If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?' She thought for a time and then asked, 'Is it on or off?'
A girl was visiting her blonde friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and asked her what their names were. The blonde responded by saying that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. Her friend said, 'Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?' 'HELLLOOOOOOO......,' answered the blonde. 'They're watch dogs'!

Voices of Pictures

This is an awesome project that the New York Times undertook, I only wish I had known about it BEFORE the event rather than after.

It's a mosaic of photos and where they were taken across the Earth and Mars on May 2, 2010 at 15:00 UTC. Be aware there are _thousands_ of photos and it take a bit to load. Don't try this over dialup.

And the blog post from The Planetary Society about the Rover Opportunity's contribution to the Moment in Time Project.

Please, take a few minutes to look through the photos. Some are quite stunning in their subject. You could spend all day looking and not see everything.

Thanks to @TaviGreiner for retweeting it from @Exoplanetology ! Follow them on Twitter!

Joke Time at the Asylum


I took my dad to the mall the other day
to buy some new shoes (he is 92). We
decided to grab a bite at the food
court.. I noticed he was watching a
teenager sitting next to him. The
teenager had spiked hair in all
different colors: green, red, orange,
and blue. My dad kept staring at him.
The teenager would look and find him
staring every time. When the teenager
had had enough, he sarcastically
asked,"What's the matter, old man?
Never done anything wild in your life?"

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my
food so that I would not choke on his
response, knowing he would have a good
one, and in classic style he did not bat
an eye in his response: "Got drunk once
and had sex with a peacock. Was just
wondering if you were my son."
