Mom-Son Wedding Dance

Personally, I would not want Mom to upstage my wife at our wedding. Way to get off on the wrong foot! Idiot!

An interesting development

So I’m perusing and come across this headline:

"Forgive me, Father, for I have’s been a week since my last confession...I was checking out your wife during Mass again”

Wait a minute. Father, Mass, Wife? Did something change? Apparently it is starting to…

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – Pope Francis has given permission for a St. Louis deacon, who is married, to be ordained into the priesthood.

Deacon Wissam Akiki will be ordained this week at St. Raymond’s Maronite Cathedral. He will be the first married man to be ordained into priesthood under the U.S. Maronite Catholic Church, according to Eparchy of our Lady of Lebanon Deacon Louis Peters.

Deacon Akiki previously attended the Holy Spirit University in Lebanon, Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Seminary and the Aquinas Institute of Theology.

Deacon Akiki will be ordained Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

I’m assuming that’s their daughter in front.


Must say I approve. There is no Scriptural justification for the Catholic celibacy rule. In fact, that rule contributed to the Catholic homosexual pedophile priest scandal. While advocating marriage as Scriptural for laymen, they forbade it to the clergy. A situation just ripe for abuse.

Almost forgot to post my source: Story here.

well, this is now officially the silly season, innit?

wow, talk about a bit ott.

Do we live in a silly world or just a sick one?  How about both. Sick and silly.  What kind of thinking brings people to this sort of dumb thing? Yeah dumb thinking. I know. But what preceded that?  What brought them to this level?
Never mind.
Maybe I’m better off not knowing.

Take a look.

‘In sickness and when we are well’: Couple due to marry in civil ceremony were told traditional vow was too religious and must be rewritten

Gary and Louise Lidington were told their chosen vows were ‘too religious’
Registrar called Mrs Lidington, 33, day before and told her to rewrite them
Couple picked civil wedding at Wilton’s Music Hall in London’s East End
The1949 Marriage Act simply says ‘no religious service will be used’
Tower Hamlets Council says officials feared vows breached rules

By Paul Bentley

A registrar ruled the words ‘to have and to hold, in sickness and in health’ were too religious for their civil ceremony.

The 39-year-old and her new husband Gary, 43, had instead to say ‘hold and have’ and ‘in sickness and when we are well’.

They were told the traditional vows were too Christian because of their roots in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Yet a minor tweak of the wording satisfied the officials.

Mrs Lidington found the process so ridiculous she burst into a fit of giggles during the ceremony at Wilton’s Music Hall, a historic Victorian theatre in the East End of London. Her husband, who is a barrister, stumbled over his new lines.

‘The vows are so important,’ said Mrs Lidington. ‘They have just stood the test of time, they sound like poetry, they flow beautifully and they are just the form of words that you expect at a wedding. Ever since I was 11 I just imagined that they would be the words I would use when I married my husband.

‘It just seems ridiculous that words which don’t mention religion could be so problematic.’

There is much confusion surrounding the law on civil weddings. The 1949 Marriage Act states that ‘no religious service shall be used at any marriage solemnised in the presence of a superintendent registrar’.

Eight years ago, however, the rules were relaxed to allow a limited amount of material that makes reference to religion

It is now for register offices to interpret the law as they see fit.

Stouffer’s Lasagna…

Last week my wife either insulted me or pointed out that I’ve not been cooking.

She brought home a frozen Stouffer’s Lasagna.

It’s an insult, I tell you!

So she baked it, and I tried some of it. Blahhh!!

Good if all you like is pasta, a little bit of cheese, and lots of unidentified red sauce. No meat, no veggies, nothing else. Couldn’t even taste any garlic.

If she wanted me to cook my signature lasagna, she should have just asked instead of wasting money on that crap. (A waste it was too… I just threw out the leftovers of it...1/3rd of the pan. The cats wouldn’t even touch it.)

So now I’m cooking up my lasagna. Based on the old ‘New Better Homes Cookbook’ recipe, as opposed to the new ‘New Better Homes Cookbook’. The difference? The new ‘New BHCB’ pretty much eschews things like eggs. Don’t want to promote cholesterol. The recipes therefore suck. I’m sorry I wasted money on the new ‘New Better Homes Cookbook’.

Anyway, my recipe is based on the old ‘New Better Homes’ recipe. My changes are to double the onions and garlic, add a 1/2lb of sautéed mushrooms, and green peppers. I also only use fresh ground pork. How do I know if it is fresh? I buy my pork from Jean every Saturday at the local farmer’s market. That pork was on the hoof a couple of days before I bought it.

If anyone is really interested, I’ll post my recipe. I’m just blogging about this because my wife either insulted me, or nudged me into cooking again. Or both.

No, it’s not wkend women or even eye candy. Am posting this due to some confusion. Take a look.

Somethin’ ain’t quite right here although she is darn pretty. This photo appeared in the hard copy of the morning paper along with this story.


Malaysian Prince wins £1.2 million defamation suit against wife
A Malaysian prince was awarded 6 million ringgit (£1.2 million) in damages in a defamation suit against his teenage wife who accused him of sexual and physical abuse after fleeing home to Indonesia.

Miss Pinot and her mother told Indonesian media that the Prince, 32, held her captive and treated her as a sex slave. She also made graphic allegations of physical torture during their marriage.

The Prince subsequently filed a defamation suit against Miss Pinot and her mother, both of whom refused to testify in the hearings.


But that is not the photo they ran in the on line version .... they ran this.  Now then.  Is this the girl above?  The mouth is different and so is the nose. Even allowing for weight gain, which of the 2 pix are more recent.  But since the top photo is so damn pretty, who really cares?

Secret to a happy marriage revealed!

The secret to a happy marriage has now been placed on a scientific basis… much like the theory of global warming:

Swiss researchers report the discovery of a magic formula for successful marriages. If true, this could mean that marriages of the future will be contracted based on scientific principles, instead of such common, but notoriously unreliable factors as failed prophylactics and tequila.

I’ve always found tequila to be a wonderful factor…

The study begins by echoing what many of us have known all along: that a successful marriage has little to do with passion, sexual prowess, your partner’s good looks, or the make and model of his car. It has to do with smarts.

According to these well meaning, but obviously over-funded scientists, the key to a happy marriage—if you are a man—is to find a woman who is 27 percent smarter than you are. If you are a woman, you need to find a man 27 percent dumber.

It’s that simple.

No, it’s not that simple, as the author notes;

Well, it is, and it isn’t. For instance, it is not hard for me to find a woman who is 27 percent smarter than me. The hard part is getting her to go out on a second date.

Go read the article. And don’t be surprised if the Democrats liberals want to regulate marriages according to IQ tests.

Happy New Year!!!

I kid you not.

The headline is… wait for it…

Why Men Fake Orgasms

Now, I just got off the phone with my Mom. I told her about this article. We both agree:

What do you mean ‘Why’?

The question is HOW?!


(smiley for Rich)

And, of course, since I remember weird stuff, Steve Martin covered the subject of faking it…

For those who’ve seen the movie, yeah, the ‘call me your poodle sl*t’ scene is on YouTube.

Funny how things work out. For example:  Only yesterday Drew made the following comment ….

“I gather the Brits need tremendous sexual stimulus just to make it through the news. And I have noticed, over time, that they seem to have some rather different standards than we do over here.” Drew

This morning my eyes fell on this article.  It’s funny, I guess.  Um ,,, maybe not if you’re a Brit.

I’m gonna file this under humor anyway. 

Brits too lazy to have sex, let alone run for a bus

By Fiona Macrae
Last updated at 10:08 AM on 10th August 2009


We’re too tired to play with our children, balk at the idea of climbing two flights of stairs and regularly choose sleep over sex, according to a report which lays bare the full extent of ‘couch potato Britain’.

A third of Britons are so lazy that they wouldn’t run to catch a bus, it is claimed.

And almost two out of three are so unfit they won’t countenance walking up two flights of stairs and will opt to take the lift instead.

Once at home, one in six say that if the remote control was broken, they would prefer to watch a TV programme they didn’t like rather than get up to change the channel, according to a study.

The poll, carried out on behalf of private healthcare chain Nuffield Health, also found that lazy lifestyles are having a devastating effect on our sex lives.

Three-quarters of couples surveyed admitted to having trouble mustering enough energy at the end of the day for a night of passion with their partner.

More than half (58 per cent) of those blamed their barren sex lives on a lack of fitness.

Children are also suffering, with two-thirds of parents questioned owning up to regularly being too tired to play with their youngsters.

The study of 2,000 adults concludes that it is no wonder one in six children are classified as obese before they even start school.

Even the health of our pets is at risk. Despite our reputation as a nation of dog-lovers, half of the owners questioned saying they often can’t be bothered to take their dog for a walk. Sarah Dauncey, medical director at Nuffield Health, urged Britons to get off their sofas and shape-up.

She said: ‘Ready-meals, remote controls and even internet shopping are all contributing to a dangerously lazy and idle Britain.

‘People need to get fitter, not just for their own sake, but for the sake of their families, friends, and evidently their pets, too. If we don’t start to take control of this problem, a whole generation will become too unfit to perform even the most rudimentary of tasks.’

A sedentary lifestyle raises the risk of a host of health problems, including heart disease, obesity, joint problems, some cancers and type 2 diabetes.

Dr Dauncey said: ‘There are two million Britons with mature-onset diabetes, many because of their lifestyle and lack of exercise.

‘But it is a vicious circle. Sometimes because you are unfit you feel tired and so you don’t exercise and you become more unfit and lethargic.

‘No one is saying that everyone has to run a marathon. You can set aside 25 to 30 minutes three or four times week to do simple things such as walking, cycling or running. It doesn’t have to take hours and hours.

‘If you have tried and failed before, a fitness centre might provide the motivation you need.’

The survey revealed Glasgow to be Britain’s most slothful city, with 75 per cent of people admitting they don’t get enough exercise, followed by Birmingham and Southampton in joint second place with 67 per cent admitting their laziness. Bristol came in third, with London, Leeds, Newcastle, Norwich, Manchester and Cardiff making up the rest of the top 10.

A previous study by the healthcare chain found that one in 12 British adults is so overweight that they could qualify for obesity surgery.

Doctors blamed chubby celebrities for adding to the obesity crisis by showing that it is possible to be fat and famous.

Fireman who beat up pregnant girlfriend escapes jail after judge praises his work . HUH?

This is another one of those posts that just have to be shared for the sheer lunacy of it.
This one ranks right up there with the judge in Netherlands a few years ago, who ruled that a bank robbers gun was a legitimate business expense and so reduce the amount of his fine by the cost of the gun he used to rob the bank.

This fellow’s girl friend is carrying his offspring. Twins. He beats her up, kicks her, chokes her, but the judge thinks his job is so important that he shouldn’t serve time.
Great.  Wish I knew that kind of thinking was a pass jail ticket.  I could have become a firefighter (assuming I could pass muster and that’s open to doubt) and then gone out and beat the crap out of some left wing wanker working for the Brit equiv. of the aclu.

It’s beyond my ability to understand how a guy could be so abusive to a woman and especially to one who is pregnant.

A fireman who beat up his pregnant girlfriend has been spared a prison sentence by a judge because of his “valuable and important” job.

Jaime Nobbs, 33, attacked Karen Roofe, 41, a primary school head teacher, on three separate occasions and subjected her to a campaign of harassment. 

On one occasion he threw Miss Roofe, who was carrying his unborn twins, to the floor, kicked her, pulled her hair, tried to throttle her, and left her with nine-inch bruises.

During the attack, which started after she threw a glass of beer at him, Nobbs repeatedly shouted “Say sorry to the master”.

In another incident, after the relationship ended, he broke into the house and lay under her bed. She later discovered him and threw him out.

The decision not to jail him was criticised by a domestic violence charity, which said a position of responsibility should be seen as an aggravating factor not mitigation.

A spokesman for the Cambridge branch of Women’s Aid, who said: “Suffering violence at the hands of your partner is a deeply damaging experience.

“This experience is not lessened by the occupation of your abuser. It is my opinion that a man’s high social standing should be seen as an aggravating factor in a case, not a mitigating factor. Violence against women is an epidemic in our society.”

Nobbs, of Peterborough, pleaded guilty to three counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one count of harassment at Cambridge Crown Court.

He was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for two years, 100 hours unpaid work in the community, ordered to attend an integrated domestic abuse programme, and pay £500 costs.

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth told him he was spared an immediate prison sentence because of the valuable work he did as a member of Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service.

He said: “You have performed a valuable and important part in the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service which has enormous importance and benefit. It is largely for that reason I am not sending you to prison today.”

The court heard Nobbs and Miss Roofe, who are no longer a couple, met in August 2003 and moved in together soon afterwards.

In 2006 Miss Roofe fell pregnant but by 2007 the relationship had begun to deteriorate into increasingly frequent arguments.

Nadia Silver, prosecuting, described three assaults on January 21, May 18 and November 24 2007.

She said of the third assault: “He grabbed her by her throat, choking her for 15 seconds. Miss Roofe felt she was going to black out. The following morning her mother could see red marks on her daughter’s neck.”

Thomas Brown said in mitigation that Nobbs was of good character but his behaviour had gone beyond what was acceptable. “He is not a bad man who habitually behaves like this,” he added.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “An internal investigation has now begun. A member of staff has been suspended while this investigation is on-going.”


Not habitually a bad man?  Oh, only on three occasions.  I bet for the party on the receiving end those three times sure felt “habitual.” I can’t help but wonder if it were say the judge’s daughter or niece or some kin, would three times have been enough? Or would he had found a way to nail and jail the guy after once.

WHY MEN DON’T WRITE ADVICE COLUMNS …..correction..(Why they write better advice columns.)

I warned my buddy, LTC flapjawman, that I would post this after I finished laughing…

oh no!… not again!… BWHAHAHAHEHEhehe…

Dear Walter,

I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t driven more than a mile down the road when the engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help. When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbors ‘daughter. I’m 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbors’ daughter is 22. We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I’d leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. He won’t go to counseling and I’m afraid I can’t get through to him anymore. Can you please help?

Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it’s clear, check the vacuum pipes and hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.

I hope this helps,

Is it just me and WALTER? Or doesn’t the lady understand ANYTHING about automobiles?

Why should we be wedded to the ideal of marriage?  Is marriage outdated ?

If you go the link you’ll need to scroll down a short way to catch this. There are other things by this writer and some interesting comments.

I thought I’d post this here to see what our readers think about this.  Maybe she’s correct but perhaps only for some ppl.

My marriage truth to tell is a joke and has been for ... gee ... I never remember how long.  Ah, wife reminds me married 38 yrs in July. I was too frightened to ask exactly what day in July. We’ve been together for 40 years and I can’t imagine anyone else putting up with me and the career moves I’ve had.  Now when I say our marriage is a joke, I should explain that’s how our mornings start and our days end.  No matter what’s happened during the day, even if we’ve had a disagreement of some kind, the day ends with some wacky silly gag or practical joke.  My wife is somewhat better at practical jokes then I am.

We’ve been thru some very ruff patches it’s true.  Was a time when we weren’t sure it would last a lifetime.  I recall once when we gave some thought to living in seperate places BUT .... at the time we thought by seperate places it should be adjoining apts. or houses.  Nothin’ came of that happy to say.

OK, I’ve had my say.  Now over to you.

Why should we be wedded to the ideal of marriage?

Now that record numbers of pensioners are divorcing, we should really try to be honest about what is happening to that fine old institution, marriage.

We need to be rigorously truthful with ourselves about why 13,678 people over 60 were divorced in 2007, up from 12,636 the previous year and from 9,052 in 1997. We also need to be realistic about why marriage rates are at the lowest level since records began in 1862.

It is painful to let go of dreams. But the simple and unappealing fact is that marriage was a useful institution when women had no possessions of their own and men needed sons and heirs to pass theirs on to.

It was invented as a commercial solution and has now outlived its commercial usefulness. People still fall in love, want to live under the same roof and raise children. But when they fall out of love, they don’t feel they should prolong the arrangement.

Politicians offering tax breaks to keep us together miss the point that couples now marry and break up in the pursuit of happiness. They will stay together for love, but not money.

And when even empty nesters think it is better to embark on an adventure in their sixties rather than stay in a stale relationship, we should accept what is screaming out at us.

Marriage as a lifetime contract is dying. We need to get over our obsession with preserving it at all costs and move on to pastures new.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
