one phone call…..

It is strange what a single phone call can do to ones life

sometimes it can start a new one and at other times it can end a life.

I remember reading about how, when people in the US are to be executed, the jailor waits for an extra minute before pulling the plug, as last minute pardons are not unknown;

so why is it that when one shares bad news, that one cannot wait an extra minute more???

Free flight


once in a blue moon….


‘once in a blue moon’ a funny term that all of us have used over the years to describe a rare event that happens ….. well once in a blue moon’  …. LOL that was something I could not resist….

Well the history of this phrase is lost in antiquity and was used by farmers to address the 3rd moon of a season, when on rare occasions the season had 4 moons. Later on this term is used to address the second full moon that occurs in one calendar month. This usually happens once every 2.7 years, but this year is special as it has not one but two blue moons…
