Amazing Breast Gourd Plant

Below are pictures of an amazing Gourd from Vietnam...

The explanation is as below:

In fact, these boob-melons are displayed in a cafe located in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. All melons are hand-made artwork which created by a Vietnamese female artist. She used silicon and composites to make them, and painted it in a pinkish color resembling of human skin, rather than the usual green of the species. The fruits and vines ‘grow’ upon on a bamboo frame inside the open cafe as decorations. The artist aimed to convey a message of femininity and women power in the modern world. 

So if you get an email with these pics like I did, it's a hoax.

Inbred Cats

People take pictures of their moggy in bread. Wierd....

Some may say it is not nice for the animal, perhaps humiliating. It is not something I would do with a cat.

I've Learned ....

'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better one day.'

'I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and a tangled cord.'

'I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.'

'I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life..'

'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

'I've learned that you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'

'I've learned that I still have a lot to learn...'

Whale Of A Story

This planet has such diversity of life, most of it isn't even catorgorised. Plants and insects are obviously in this although most mammals are known. When it comes to sea life, creatures near the shore are quite well known, but get out into oceans, especially in the deep blue sea, and man is 'all at sea' so to speak. It is difficult and expensive to explore deep water, where it is dark and the pressure great.

Therefore, when two whales - a mother and calf - were washed up on a beach in New Zealand in 2012, it wasn't considered too significant. NZ has a culture of notifying the Department of Conservation, who duly come out and sort it. In this case that involved tissue samples and burial. However, when the samples were analysed they were done again and again to make sure the readings were correct. This was the DNA of a very rare and basically unknown whale. The bodies were quickly exhumed for further examination.

These were spade toothed whales, a deep sea whale that rarely come to the water's surface and are not seen by coastal areas. The fact they got to be washed up on a NZ beach is quite exceptional. This will be a find of great interest to biologists. It reminds us that our 'advanced' society has so much to learn about this planet we call earth.

Sign Of The Times

A Pastor was erecting a sign alongside a country lane which said: "The end is near. Turn around now before it is too late".

A motorist stopped and said to the Pastor "We don't need you preaching your message to us" and sped off around the corner.

The Pastor heard a big splash and said to himself "Maybe I should put instead 'Bridge Out'".
