Coconut elixir ?

A friend sent me an e-mail which contained a list of the benefits of drinking Coconut Water. Seldom have I come across comforting words for the food/drink I love....Laksa, Kolomee, Bak Kut Teh, Nasi Lemak.....the list goes on and on.....Beer ! Usually I hear "Cholesterol", "Saturated Fat", "Trans Fat". This is followed by the statement.."Eat also die, No eat also die !"  That sounds logical BUT what if you "eat and then only HALF die ?"  You get bed-ridden and life becomes very difficult, for you and the family looking after you.

This is depressing so lets go back to Coconut Water. I found a website which provides a lot of information on Coconut Water and other things which have health benefits. The link is below :-

Dont forget EXERCISE !!!

Dana winning the Eurovision Song contest

In 1970, this song won the Eurovision Song contest and Dana won the hearts of fans all over the world with her pretty face and amazing voice.

I googled to see how my blog, sharing the same name with Dana's song, rated and I found it on page 13 of the search listings. Dana, of course, was listed on every page right from page one.

Watch and enjoy :-

Dana later became a Politician and even ran in the 1997 Irish Presidential election.

Farts 'R' Fun

I got the following article from a site called which publishes a treasury (some might not call it that) of fart jokes :-

A woman goes to her boyfriend's parents' house for Christmas dinner. This is to be her first time meeting the family and she is very nervous. They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal.

The woman is beginning to feel a little discomfort, thanks to her nervousness and the broccoli casserole. The gas pains she has practically make her eyes water. Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve herself a bit and every so gently lets out a very dainty fart. It wasn't loud, but everyone at the table heard the poof. Before she even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend's father looked over at the dog that had been snoozing under the woman's chair, and said in a rather stern voice, "Rover!". The woman thought, "This is great! He thinks it's the dog!". A big smile came across her face. A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain again. This time, she didn't even hesitate. She let out a much louder and longer rrrrrip.
The father again looked at the dog and yelled, "Rover!". Once again the woman smiled and thought, "Yes! This is perfect!". A few minutes later the woman had to let another rip. This time she didn't even think about it nor did she hold back. She ripped a fart so big and so loud that it made the windows vibrate. Once again, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled, "Damn-it Rover get away from that woman before she shits on you

The year was 1968 and a new movie was the talk of the town. It was none other than Shakspear's Romeo and Juliet. After I watched this movie the song "What is a Youth" haunted me for months....years. Today YouTube brings back memories of those times.

Watch and see what I mean :-

Every now and then Nature tries to tell us something

(Meekly) Yes, I am back. A friend sent me an article about a dog and a little piglet. It is so touching I thought I must share it and what better way than to post it in a blog. This is another attempt at reviving this blog. Anyway, here is the article :-

This is so adorable and sweet.

A giant farm dog and a tiny piglet cuddle up as if they were family after the baby runt was dismissed by its own mother.
Surrogate mum Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, took on motherly duties for grunter Paulinchen - a tiny pot-bellied pig - and seems to be taking the adoption in her stride.

Lonely Paulinchen was luckily discovered moments from death and placed in the care of the dog who gladly accepted it as one of her own. Thankfully for the two-week old mini porker, Katjinga fell in love with her at first sight and saved her bacon.

And the unlikely relationship has made the wrinkly piggy a genuine sausage dog. In these adorable images Paulinchen can even be seen trying to suckle from her gigantic new mum. The two animals live together on a huge 20-acre farm in Hoerstel , Germany , where Katjinga's owners Roland Adam, 54, and his wife Edit, 44, a bank worker, keep a pair of breeding Vietnamese pigs.

Nose place like home: The baby piglet nuzzles up to its new mum. Property developer Roland found the weak and struggling piglet after she was abandoned by the rest of her family one evening after she was born. He said: "The pigs run wild on our land and the sow had given birth to a litter of five in our forest. "I found Paulinchen all alone and when I lifted her up she was really cold "I felt sure some local foxes would have taken the little pig that very night so I took it into my house and gave her to Katjinga. "She had just finished with a litter of her own, who are now 10 months, so I thought there was a chance she might take on the duties of looking after her. "Katjinga is the best mother you can imagine. She immediately fell in love with the piggy. Straight away she started to clean it like it was one of her own puppies. "Days later she started lactating again and giving milk for the piggy. She obviously regards it now as her own baby.

"Mum of the year? Quite possibly.
