I took took the liberty of uploading your video to YouTube as it plays better. Unless you have an objection, the following entry will appear in my newsletter next week...

If you want to see “The Right Stuff,” have a look at this video we received from Mike Thompson and check out some great passes down the Star Wars Canyon by several war birds and other other rare aircraft. Clicking on the link under the pic will start the show. (7:24)

I sent the video to my nephew who flew F-18s throughout his 20-year career with the Marines before retiring a couple of years ago as the Commander of an F-18 squadron at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego. My message: “Be honest, Dave, don’t you miss this kind of flying?”

His reply: “Oh yes. Did I ever send you this video? One of my guys made it.”

Koala Sneaks Into Man's Car, Clings to Dashboard to Chill in the Air Conditioning












Yesterday I had an appointment to see the urologist for a prostate exam.  Of course, I was a bit on edge because all my friends have either gone under the knife or had those pellets implanted.


The waiting room was filled with patients.


As I approached the receptionist’s desk, I noticed that she was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo wrestler.


I gave her my name, and in a very loud voice, she said, "YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE.  YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?


All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at me, a now very embarrassed man.  But as usual, I recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied, "NO, I’VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION, BUT I DON’T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS.”


The room erupted in applause!





Remember when Donald Trump was business partners with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as "Putin's Child?”

Oh wait, that wasn't Trump; it was John Podesta.


Remember when Donald Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow and paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?

Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.


Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State which gave control of it to Rosatom the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?

Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.


Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn't a part of approving the deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it?

Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.


Remember when Donald Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?

Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.


Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the chairman of a company that's part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow and a close pal of Putin's?

Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.


Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records? 

Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton


Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the '80s called and it wanted its Russian policy back. The Cold War is over?

Oh wait, that was President Obama.



Man, Trump's ties to   Russia are really  "disgusting!"

2. Teaching Math In 1970

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

3. Teaching Math In 1980

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit ? Yes or No 

4. Teaching Math In 1990

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.  Your assignment: Underline the number 20. 

5. Teaching Math In 2018

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish, hates the planet, is inconsiderate of Mother Nature and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. Nor does he care of climate change or global warming.  He only does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? 

Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers, feel free to express your feelings e.g., anger, anxiety, inadequacy, helplessness etc.)

Should you require debriefing at the conclusion of exam there are counsellors available to assist your adjustment back into the real world. We can also offer safe places and hankies if you didn’t understand the question and/or know how to answer correctly.  You will still receive your test participation trophy that you will enjoy for years.  Please leave the name & phone of your mother so we can text her to pick you up. We hope you get many hugs and kisses.
