Wordy Wednesday!

At the moment I am currently reading “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason as a personal reading choice not for review. I thought I would share some of his wise words for this Wordy Wednesday:

Lo, money is plentiful for those who understand the simple rules of its acquisition.

1. Start thy purse to fattening
2. Control thy expenditures
3. Make thy gold multiply
4. Guard thy treasures from loss
5. Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment
6. Insure a future income
7. Increase thy ability to earn

I am not too far in at the moment and so don’t know further details re the rules as yet but even just reading the above seven it seems to make sense. And now, how to put that into practice, hopefully I shall learn the secrets πŸ™‚

Today’s Wordy Wednesday is a word:

AU FAIT

Meaning – abreast(p): being up to particular standard or level especially in being up to date in knowledge; “kept abreast of the latest developments”; “constant revision keeps the book au courant”; “always au fait on the latest events”; “up on the news”

Funny story really, I dreamt about this word the other night, woke up in the morning and just knew the next Wordy Wednesday would be au fait. I just love it, it just rolls right off the tongue.

HAVE YOU HIRD THE NEWS?!?!?!

The picture above is a gorgeous pic of the Hird family.

James Hird has recently been appointed coach of the Essendon Football Club.

Yes, that is the team I follow in Australian Rules Football and Hird was one of my favourite players – definitely in a league of his own.

So it is a very very happy time for me to learn the great Hird will now be coaching – a dream come true!!!

And so today’s word is PERFECT!

James Hird is perfect, the perfect gentleman, the perfect player and, fingers crossed, the perfect coach.

There are many words to describe this man but by golly I’m so excited that I would have enough words for the next 1,000 Wordy Wednesdays if I kept going πŸ™‚

And so I shall leave it at that and – come on the Bombers!!!

Wordy Wednesday!

A little bit of a funny for this Wednesday:

A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket. The husband picks up a case of VB and puts it in their cart. ‘What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the wife.

‘They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans he replies. ‘Put them back, we can’t afford them demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket. What do you think you’re doing?’ asks the husband.

‘It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,’ replies the wife.

Her husband retorts: ‘So does 24 cans of VB and it’s half the price.’

Wordy Wednesday!

Ah, this made me laugh….and it also gave me an idea πŸ˜‰

A Greek man walked into a bank in Sydney and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Greece on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Greek man handed over the keys to his new Ferrari.

The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Greek man produced the title and everything checked out.

The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank’s president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at
the Greek man for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000
loan.

An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank’s underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Greek man returned, repaid the $5,000 and the
interest of $23.07 in full.

The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a millionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000 when you are a millionaire?”

The Greek man replied, “Malaka, where else in Sydney can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?”

LOVE IT! Seriously, parking is so expensive, this was a bright idea!

Psychopath Test

Read this question, come up with an answer and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. No one I know has got it right.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did Not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much, that she fell in love with him right there, but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.

Question: What is her motive for killing her sister?

[Give this some thought before you answer]

Answer:

She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again. If you answered this correctly, you think like a psychopath. This was a test by a famous American Psychologist used to test if one has the same mentality as a killer. Many arrested serial killers took part in the test and answered the question correctly.

If you didn’t answer the question correctly, good for you.

If you got the answer correct, please let me know so I can take you off my email list.

Now, I’m not sure I want to know what your answer was but if you got the correct answer perhaps you should be using that mind of yours to write us our next thriller πŸ™‚

Today’s Wordy Wednesday may induce a laugh or perhaps just an EW!!!

The scent of freshness:-

A new Aldi supermarket opened in Toowoomba, Australia recently.

It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the distant sound of thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh cut hay.

In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks and bratwurst.

When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread & cakes.

I don’t buy toilet paper there anymore.

Mm hm, I think I would stay clear of the toilet paper also!

Hm, I wonder how many people have felt like this?!?!

After going through a virus attack,
Losing a hard drive,
Fighting off hackers,
Upgrading all my software,
Installing fire-walls,
Being threatened with being cut-off by my email provider,
And a host of other problems…
I have fixed my computer…
And NOW it works exactly the way I want it to!

Wordy Wednesday!

Today’s Wordy Wednesday is a joke, you may have already heard it but I thought I would share it because I think it’s cute πŸ™‚

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, “I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.”

The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?” “Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead,” replied the vet.

“How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something.”

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck.”

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!” she cried, “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!”

The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $150.”
