Hi there!

 

“…… Last week Bo and I decided to stay in and
enjoy the evening together.
After having a very pleasant dinner we thought
it would be a great idea to sit closely and enjoy
a good entertaining comedy.

We have always liked the delightful Naked Gun
films, so
we decided to put on the Naked Gun 2 1/2 :
The
Smell of Fear this time, because we knew we
would find it extremely entertaining.

It really was such an enjoyable and amusing
evening;   we kept on laughing for the whole
one and a half hours it was playing.

Watching this fantastic comedy on the television
sitting together on the sofa, it was the best choice
we had made.
It really was such a great way to feel closer to
each other and relieve all stresses of the day……”

” If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane ”
Robert Frost     1874  –  1963

Errata!

 

Hello!

 

The golden haired woman followed
him into the lounge.

“This is Izzy, my companion” he
introduced her.

She was a young, very beautiful
woman, dressed in a
tight red
dress and black stilettos.

They both sat on the couch.
She crossed her long legs, which
caused the cut in her
dress to open,
exposing her right side to her
gorgeous
thigh.

“We are drinking champagne
all night”, Bo said.

“Have another glass and enjoy
yourself”.

It was a wonderful night in this
magnificent house
with its warm
and comfortable atmosphere.

The company was fantastic and
everybody’s spirits
were amazingly
uplifted.

“I’d better stay seated;  my feet
are killing me and
I feel a bit dizzy,
already”, she thought and smiled
to
everyone…

Disturbing Facts

 

Women make a number of mistakes
in their every
day life, which cause
them a lot of discomfort.

Some of them are as follows:

 

A)    High heels make women look
very sexy and
attractive, as well as
improving the shape of
their legs.

But wearing high heels on a daily
basis or on
long periods is very
harmful to their health.

Not only they affect their posture,
but also they
can lead to serious health
problems like, back
pain, tendonitis,
joint problems, various accidents

and serious damage to the feet.

Limit the height of your heels to between
two (2)
and four (4) centimeters to
avoid any health
problems.

B)    During certain occasions most women
will drink
alcoholic drinks, which on principal
is alright.

But keeping up with the drinking habits
of men
is very dangerous due to the
women’s smaller
physical size.

Drink only one (1) glass of alcohol
and alternate
with soft drinks, so your
body can dilute it and
absorb it effectively.

 

C)    Big handbags are fashionable and
extremely
practical to carry.

But carrying a large, heavy shoulder
bag regularly
or for very long time
jeopardizes your health by
causing arm,
shoulder and neck problems.

Carry only a small hand bag with the
absolutely
necessary items in it.

 

D)    The bras is a very important piece
of clothing to
support the breasts.
Three quarters of all women wear
the wrong bras.

But wearing the wrong size bras
can certainly cause
back, neck,
breathing and circulating problems,

together with health risks to the breasts.

Get measured properly for the right
size and support
bras to avoid the
health risks.

E)    Missing sleep is very harmful to
the overall health.

Take all the necessary steps to be
able to sleep
at least six (6) hours
every night.

 

F)    Stressing and obsessing about
various things on a
regular basis can
damage our physical and mental

health in many ways irreparably.

Take things as they come, relax
and feel happy
to live longer.

 

Look after yourselves!!

Hi there!

She stared at the woman in the mirror,
and felt a wave of fear sweeping over her.
“I am too fat.. I have too many wrinkles..
my hair is thinning.. My body is sagging..
I’m really growing old..!”

She felt anxious and panicky, so she had to
lie down to relax before she could do anything
else that evening.

S

Happiness is a state of mind!

It is not something external to chase.
It is inside us, and we have to decide to
be happy!

As soon as we stop being neurotic about things
like, “What should I be doing with the rest of
my life?” and really relax, then we will experience
true happiness.

Mens Sana In Corpore Sano!

Hello!

S

I first started swimming as a toddler, when my mother
used to take us to the sea every day from May to
September, because she enjoyed it herself.

Since then and until the early eighties, when I moved
to the UK, I was swimming daily.
Obviously after that, I was only swimming on holidays,
and occasionally in the pool here.

I do miss the sea very much!
This magical feeling of peace and pleasure floating
and gliding in the serene, cool, blue water, reflecting
the colour of the bright sky above…!
