Canada, home of the free.

A friend took this great picture of Canada's tallest building recently,
I think it's called twin peaks or something like that, great shot eh?

I'm going to plead the Fifth Amendment for the following article,
I have had to put up with the pleasure of Wazza's company for
three days, this always puts some strain on my mental capacity
(and hearing) HE'S STILL LOUD, but on the positive side he's
great company too.

Well it's New Years Eve in Oz so I'd like to wish you all;

........ HAPPY NEW YEAR.........

Beer contains female hormones.

Last month, University of Botswana scientists released the results of
a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in
beer.Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption.

The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain
phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into

To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a
1 hour period.

It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects:

1) Argued over nothing.

2) Refused to apologize when obviously wrong.

3) Gained weight.

4) Talked excessively without making sense.

5) Became overly emotional.

6) Couldn't drive.

7) Failed to think rationally.

8) Had to sit down while urinating.

No further testing was considered necessary.

Send this to the men you know to warn them about drinking
too much beer!

Four Friends.

Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunited at
a party after several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room.

Those who remained talked about their kids.

The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working
at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied
Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb
the corporate ladder and now he's the president of the company.
He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line
Mercedes for his birthday."

The second guy said, "Darn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride
and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight
school to become a pilot. Eventually he became a partner in! the
company, where he owns the majority of its assets He's so rich
that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday."

The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the best
universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own
construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave
away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his
birthday: A 30,000 square foot mansion."

The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth
returned from the restroom and asked: "What are all the
congratulations for?"

One of the three said: "We were talking about the pride we feel for
the successes of our sons. ...What about your son?"

The fourth man replied: "My son is gay and makes a living dancing
as a stripper at a nightclub."

The three friends said: "What a shame... what a disappointment."

The fourth man replied: "No, I'm not ashamed. He's my son and I love
him. And he hasn't done too bad either. His birthday was two weeks
ago, and he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand

new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three

Say what....something isn't right here, you mention "strain on your mental capacity". Nah doesn't compute. Left hand "Peter" right hand "mental capacity". Try to balance this. Nah doesn't work. I only had to be loud to keep myself awake. Jees nearly 3.00am every morning except for the one morning I called it quits at 12.30am and went to bed.
Anyway ole, mate hava a bloody Happy New Year.
