Once more I have something that is not particularly funny, but so interesting that I would like to share it with you.

To Russia With Love

A Journey On The Zarengold Train

Of The Trans-Siberian Railways


This video lasts thirty-five minutes
and takes us in style and splendour
through landscapes of breath-taking beauty.

Oh, Bubbles!

I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky
And then, like my dreams, just fade away.

Fortune’s always hiding.
I’ve looked everywhere,
But I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

Once more I have something for you that is not funny, but in my view well worth watching:

A German Miniature Wunderland

Many A Father’s Dream Come True


Two German brothers created a miniature train set that can be seen by following the video link below. Whether it’s gambling in Las Vegas, hiking in the Alps or paddling in Norwegian fjords, it seems that in this wonderland everything is possible.

The Great Outdoors

Sherlock Holmes and Watson went camping to get away from it all. In the middle of the night Sherlock woke Watson and asked him: ‘What do you see?’

Watson replied: ‘Why, I see stars – millions of them!’

‘Hm,’ said Holmes. ‘And what does that tell you?’

‘Well,’ came the reply, ‘astronomically, I see millions of stars, and the possibility that there are billions more of them in other galaxies. Theologically, I see that God is great and manifests magnificently in his Creation. Meteorologically, I see that the weather tomorrow will be clear and fine. But what do you see, Holmes?’

After a moment’s pause, Sherlock replied: ‘Elementary, my dear Watson! Someone has stolen our tent.’

The Changes that age brings...

When we are young we sneak out of the house to go to parties.
When we get old we sneak out of parties to go home.

Good humor always has a ring of truth in it.

Once more it's not something funny I would like to share with you. Yet, it is very interesting and because I don't know where else I could let you have a look at it, here we go:

Life In China Today

The New Century Global Centre is a multipurpose building in the Tianfu new area of Chengdu, China. It is our world’s largest building. The 100-metre-tall (330 ft) structure is 500 by 400 metres (1,600 by 1,300 ft) in size with 1,700,000 square metres (18,000,000 sq ft) of floor space, making it the world’s largest building measured by floor space.

Developed by billionaire Deng Hong’s Entertainment and Travel Group (ETG), nearly 400,000 square metres (4,300,000 sq ft) of the building is devoted to shopping. It also houses offices, conference rooms, a university complex, two commercial centres, hotels, an IMAX cinema, a Mediterranean village, a pirate ship and skating rink.

The centrepiece of the building is a water park, the Paradise Island Water Park, which contains a 5,000 square metres (54,000 sq ft) artificial beach, where a giant 150 by 40 m (490 by 130 ft) screen forms the horizon and brings its visitors sunrises and sunsets. At night, a stage extends over the pool for concerts. A stand has been built overlooking the pool with a food court and entrance underneath at the floor level.

Its new Intercontinental Hotel is going to feature 1,009 rooms that will be spread over six eight story blocks around the edge of the complex.

Maxine Asks

Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea, does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren’t they just stale bread to begin with?

If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren’t people from Holland called Holes?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car is not called a racist?

If it’s true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn’t it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

Do Lipton Tea employees take ‘coffee breaks?’

What hair colour do they put on driving licenses of bald men?

Thinking about how mothers feed their babies with small spoons and forks set me wondering what Chinese mothers might use. Toothpicks?

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in Post Offices? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don’t they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while delivering mail?

Is it true that one never really learns to swear until one learns to drive?

And why do we press harder on the remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do banks charge a fee due to insufficient funds, when they know full well that you are broke?

Why is it that when someone tells you that there are billions of stars in the Universe you believe them, but when someone tells you there is wet paint somewhere, why do you have to touch it to check?

Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when someone throws a revolver at him?

Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an ‘s’ into the word ‘lisp’?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that, no matter what colour bubble bath you use, the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat has appeared?

Why do people run over a piece of string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, all of a sudden reach down, pick it up, examine it and then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

How do dead bugs get into enclosed light fittings?

Why is it that whenever one tries to catch something that’s falling off the table one always manages to knock something else over?

Why, in winter, do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

The statistics on sanity say that one out of every four people suffers from some kind of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they’re OK, it must be you.

Be Careful What You Ask For!

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day, while his wife stayed at home. He wanted her to become aware of the kind of things he had to endure and so one fine day he prayed: ‘Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, I go to work every day and put in eight hours of toil, while my wife merely stays at home. I don’t think that’s fair. I want her to get to know my lot in life. How about swopping our roles just for a day, so she does my work and I do hers?’

The Universe, in Its infinite wisdom, granted the man’s wish. And so the next morning he woke up as a woman. Immensely pleased with himself, he got up and prepared breakfast for his family. Then he raised the children from their slumbers and set out their school clothes. Having breakfasted with them, he packed their lunches and drove them to school. Upon returning home he picked up the dry cleaning and took it to the cleaners, stopping at the bank to make a deposit. Then he went to the supermarket to shop for groceries and drove home to put them away. After that he paid some bills, without forgetting to balance the check book.

After that he cleaned the cat’s litter tray and bathed the dog. As it was already one p.m., it was time for making the beds. After that came the laundry, dusting and vacuuming. Then he swept and mopped the kitchen floor. Oh dear! Time for picking the children up from school. On their way home they got into an argument with him. When they got home, he gave them some milk and biscuits and then supervised their homework.

After all that, he set up the ironing board and watched TV whilst he was ironing. At 4.30 p.m. he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables to make some salad. He breaded the pork chops he had bought and prepared fresh beans to accompany them. Having partaken in their evening meal, he cleaned the kitchen and got the dishwasher going, folded laundry, bathed the children and put them to bed.

By 9 p.m. he was so exhausted that, in spite of the fact that his daily chores were by no means finished, he went to bed. Instead of being allowed to go to sleep and get the rest he needed and had deserved, he was expected to make love. To his own amazement, he managed to get through it without complaint.

Upon waking the next morning, he immediately went down on his knees by the side of his bed and prayed: ‘Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, I don’t know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife’s being able to stay at home. Please, oh please, will you let me be a man again? Amen!’

The Universal Force, in Its infinite wisdom, replied: ‘My dearest child of the Earth, I can see that you have learnt your lesson and I would be happy enough to change things back to the way they were, but you’ll have to wait nine months because you got pregnant last night.’

The Importance Of Drinking Water In Old Age

A reporter asked 101 year-old Hattie Mae MacDonald of Feague, Kentucky: ‘Can you give us some health tips for reaching your age?’

Hattie replied:

For better digestion I drink beer.
In the case of appetite loss I drink white wine.
For low blood pressure I drink red wine.
In the case of high blood pressure I drink scotch.
And when I have a cold I drink schnapps.

Reporter: When do you drink water?

Hattie: I’ve never been that sick!

Gnome Sayings

Important facts to remember as you grow older:

Death is the number one killer in the world.

Life is sexually transmitted.

Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won’t bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospital and dying of nothing.

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

In the sixties people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Don’t worry about old age. It doesn’t last that long.
