Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop.

Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives; then you'll be afraid to cough.

You only need two tools in life: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD -40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Robert The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Robert the red nosed reindeer

Was Rudolph's cousin twice-removed

He was always getting up to mischief

Of which the other reindeer disapproved

He was always at the reindeer disco

Instead of helping Santa make toys

And picking fights with other reindeer

Cos Robert was a bad bad boy

Then one foggy Christmas eve

He got into a fight

A big bad reindeer punched him on the nose

In hospital he spent the night

Then all the other reindeer

Said" Well,we're not suprised"

When Robert the red-nosed reindeer

Turned up to work with two black eyes

He drove a hotted up Monaro

All around the town he'd go

Dragging off other reindeer

And dropping wheelies in the snow

Then another Christmas eve

Rudolph came to town

He said" Robbie boy,why dontchya clean up your act?"

Come and help drag Santa's sleigh around

So Robbie roared off with Santa

Off into the sky they climbed

And Robbie was such a leadfoot

Poor Santa copped a speeding fine

Aussie Jingle Bells

Dashing through the bush

In a rusty Holden ute

Kicking up the dust

esky in the boot

Kelpie by my side

Singing Christmas songs

Its summer time and I am in

My singlet,shorts and thongs


Oh,Jingle Bells Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way

Christmas In Australia

On a scorching summer's day

Jingle Bells, Jingle bells

Christmas time is Beaut

Oh what fun it is to ride

In a rusty Holden ute

Engine's getting hot

Dodge the kangaroos

Swaagies climbs aboard

He is welcome too

All the family is there

Sitting by the pool

Christmas day ,the Aussie way

By the Barbeque


Jingle Bells,Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia

On a scorching summer's day

Jingle Bells ,Jingle bells

Chrstams time is beaut

Oh what fun it is to ride

In a rusty Holden ute

Come the afternoon

Grandpa has a doze

The kids and Uncle Bruce

Are swimming in thier clothes

The time comes round to go

We take a family snap

Then pack the car and all shoot through

Before the washing up


Oh Jingle bells ,jingle Bells

Jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia

On a scorching summer's day

Jingle Bells,Jingle Bells

Christmas time is beaut

Oh what fun it is to ride

In a rusty Holden ute


(For those of you not in the know, Eromanga is a small town west of

Quilpie in the far south west of Queensland)

Dear Mum & Dad,
I am well. Hope youse are too.  Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is better than workin'
on the farm - tell them to get in bloody quick smart before the jobs are all gone! I wuz a bit slow in settling down at first, because ya don't hafta get outta bed until 6am.

But I like sleeping in now, cuz all ya gotta do before brekky is make ya bed and shine ya boots and clean ya uniform. No bloody cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to stack - nothin'!!

Blokes haz gotta shave though, but its not so bad, coz there's lotsa hot water and even a light to see what ya doing!

At brekky ya get cereal, fruit and eggs but there's no kangaroo steaks or possum stew like wot Mum makes. You don't get fed again until noon, and by that time all the city boys are buggered because we've been on a 'route march' - geez its only just like walking to the windmill in the back paddock!!

This one will kill me brothers Doug and Phil with laughter. I keep getting medals for shootin' - dunno why. The bullseye is as big as a bloody possum's bum and it don't move and its not firing back at ya like the Johnsons did when our big scrubber bull got into their prize cows before the Ekka last year!

All ya gotta do is make yourself comfortable and hit the target its a piece of piss!! You don't even load your own cartridges - they comes in little boxes and ya don't have to steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shooting truck when you reload!
Sometimes ya gotta wrestle with the city boys and I gotta be real careful coz they break easy - it's not like fighting with Doug and Phil and Jack and Boori and Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at home after the muster.
Turns out I'm not a bad boxer either and it looks like I'm the best the platoon's got, and I've only been beaten by this one bloke from the Engineers - he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three pickhandles across the
shoulders and as ya know I'm only 5 foot 7 and eight stone wringin' wet, but I fought him till the other blokes carried me off to the boozer.

I can't complain about the Army - tell the boys to get in quick before word gets around how bloody good it is.

Your loving daughter,

Stressed? Try This

Just in case you are having a rough day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological texts. The funny thing is that it works.

1. Picture yourself near a stream.

2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.

3. No one knows your secret place.

4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place called the world.

5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

6. The water is crystal clear.

7. You can easily make out the face of the person you are holding underwater.

See. You're smiling already


A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups. And set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

"Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."

"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, "These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"

"Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here, Dolly!" he called. Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a some what awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....

"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands."

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy. "How much?" asked the little boy. "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."
