WELCOME to THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022
Here’s The Story….
A man blew up his house as he washed his kitchen floor with a cleaning fluid mixed with petrol.
The fumes were ignited by the boiler in his living room.
The blast blew out the bay window and wrecked ceilings and walls in Ron Cox’s
home. He had been using Cillit Bang to get glue off his kitchen floor tiles, but he found it such hard
work he thought petrol would help. As the fumes wafted through the house
there was an explosion as they came into contact with the pilot light on the gas boiler. Newspapers
reported that Mr. Cox said, ‘I didn’t realize what had happened at first. I couldn’t
believe the damage. It was just a cupful. Lucky I was in the kitchen and no one else was in the house.’
He has now moved out of the house in Scunthorpe, Lincs, while it is repaired. His neighbor, Dave, told the reporter, ‘We heard an almighty bang. I rushed round and found Ron shocked but unhurt.’
Dave put out a fire in the lounge and dialed 999 Humberside fire chief Stuart Spence said:
‘Ron is very lucky. Nobody should ever try to use petrol as a cleaner.’ 😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁
q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
Anybody who says their wedding or the birth of their child was
the best day of their life has clearly never had 2 candy bars fall
down at once from a vending machine.
My friend keeps telling me, “Cheer up, man. It could be worse.
You could be stuck underground in a hole full of water.”
And I know he means well, but…
I hope when I die it’s early in the morning, so I don’t
go to work that day for no reason.
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
Some of my friends started a company built around an innovative idea for an
online business. A debate broke out about what to name the venture. “We have
to call it Imagination,” one passionate participant cried out.
Everyone thought the idea over for a minute, and then a voice of reason replied,
“Are you sure you want your business card to read ‘Imagination, Limited’?” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“The Bolsheviks trust you?”
“They trust no one. They found me useful.”
Answer: Doctor Zhivago!
In this scene, survivor Viktor Komarovsky (Rod Steiger) visits Dr. Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif) and Lara Antipova (Julie Christie) in the Russian town of Yuriatin, just after the Russian Revolution and informs them he has been appointed Minister of Justice by the Bolsheviks. He also tells them Lara’s husband, political activist Strelnikov, has killed himself while being walked to his execution and that Lara is in immediate danger. An incredulous Yuri says line one and Viktor explains with line two. In the events leading up to this scene, young Dr. Zhivago meets and falls in love with nurse Lara, loses track of her and then finds her again. Much of this movie is set during the Russian Revolution and against the vastness of the Russian landscape. In the 1966 Academy Awards “Doctor Zhivago” won five Oscars and was nominated for five more, including Best Picture (but lost to “The Sound of Music”) and David Lean for Best Director. The vastness of the Russian frontier in winter snow is spectacular on a wide screen.

The cost of making only the maker knows,
Valueless if bought, but sometimes traded.
A poor man may give one as easily as a king.
When one is broken pain and deceit are assured.
