Stevie Wonder In Japan

Stevie Wonder is playing his first gig in Tokyo and the place is absolutely packed to the rafters. In a bid to break the ice with his new audience he asks if anyone would like him to play a request. A little old Japanese man jumps out of his seat in the first row and shouts at the top of his voice..."Play a Jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!

Amazed that this guy knows about the jazz influences in Stevie's varied career, the blind impresario starts to play an E minor scale and then goes into a difficult jazz melody for about 10 minutes. When he finishes the whole place goes wild. The little old man jumps up again and shouts..."No, no, play a Jazz chord, play a Jazz chord".

A bit nonplussed by this, Stevie, being the professional that he is, dives straight into a jazz improvisation with his band around the B flat minor chord and really tears the place apart. The crowd goes wild with this impromptu show of his technical expertise. The little old man jumps up again. "No, no. Play a Jazz chord, play a Jazz chord".

Well and truly brassed off that this little guy doesn't seem to appreciate his playing ability, Stevie says to him from the stage "OK, you get up here and do it!"

 The little old man climbs up onto the stage, takes hold of the mike, and starts to sing.....

 "A jazz chord to say I ruv you................."

Disco Inferno

A man takes his wife to a disco. There's a man on the dance floor doing the works - break dancing, moon-walking and back flips.

The wife turns to her husband and says: "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down."

The husband replies:"Looks like he's still celebrating"

Beautiful Flowers - Part 1

Flowers are amazing. So colourful, beautifully scented, delicate yet robust too, unbelievable variety and how they operate in their environment blows me away. Truly a credit to their Maker.

The Mexican Stand Off

Two old Jewish men, Levi and Abe, are sitting in a Mexican restaurant in L.A. Levi asks Abe "Do you know of any people of our faith born and raised in Mexico?"

Abe replies, "I don't know of any, I'll ask our waiter". When the waiter arrives, Abe asks, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"

The waiter says  "I don't know senor; I ask the cooks". He returns from the kitchen after a few minutes and says "No, senor; the cook say no Mexican Jews".

Abe isn't satisfied and asks "Are you absolutely sure?"

The waiter replies "I check once again, senor!" He goes back into the kitchen.

While the waiter is away, Levi says "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere".

The waiter returns and says "Senor, the head cook Juan say there is no Mexican Jews".

"Are you certain?" Abe asks again. "I just can't believe there are no Mexican Jews!"

"SENOR, I ask EVERYONE" replies the exasperated waiter. "All we have is Orange Jews, Grape Jews, Prune Jews, and Tomato Jews".

1 Chat Request...

Whenever I go to a particular website, among the advertisements is this request from Stephanie. At first I was flattered that such a pretty young lady wanted to wile away the hours talking to me.  However, I resisted the offer and thought no more of it. Until the next time...and the next time...and the next time I visited the site. She was still there, wanting that call.

I thought she either has a dull life always being on-line as she is, or really has it bad for me. Hmmm, only 2.8 miles away. Actually how does the computer know how far away I am from Steph's place? (I"m starting to get too familiar shortening the name).

I feel sorry for Stephie (there I go again). I am too old for her and already contentedly married. There must be a host of young men that would gladly sweep her off her feet with romantic charm. Sometimes people want what they cannot have. All I can say is I hope she reads this blog, and this post will let her down gently.

Youths Must Be Allowed To Grow

When I was young, if I got a  poor school report, my parents sat down me to find out how I could do better. Today many parents see it as the teachers problem. Some even contact the teacher or someone higher to complain about it.

Had a policeman ever come to my home to let my parents know about something they were not happy with, they would be most embarrassed and I would have been in very big trouble. Today many parents see that as the policeman's fault. Some parents even get abusive with him.

So what effect does this have on the youth? In the first example, it takes away the need for the child to feel that he (or she) needs to improve his (or her) effort at school. Also, the young person is effectively reliant on parents sort out issues. How is that going to prepare them to face the world as adults? In the second case, the child almost certainly knows they did wrong. When the parent defends them, it undermines the young ones values and respect for authority.

The modern parent has a tendency to over protect their child. It doesn't help them to grow and mature, neither does it teach them the importance of authority in society. In the first case, children end up unable to effectively stand up for themselves, lacking self confidence and even self esteem. The latter could lead to problems working under a boss in business, as well as with the law and police later in life. Youths must be allowed to grow and parents will do this if they make sure their kids face up to life and the consequences of their actions.
