A woman goes to the Doctor in Glasgow, worried about her husband's temper 
and threatening manner. 
 
The Doc asks: "What's the problem, Janet? 
 
The woman says: "Weeell Doctor Cameron, I dinae know what to do. Every time 
ma hubbie Sandy comes home drunk, he threatens to slap me aroon'. 
 
"The Doctor says: "Aye, well. I have a real good cure for that. When your 
husband arrives home intoxicated, just take a wee glass of water and start 
swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don't swallow it until 
he goes to bed and is sound asleep." 
 
Two weeks later she comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn. 
 
She says: "Doctor that was brilliant! Evrae time ma hubbie came home drunk, 
I swished with water. I swished an' swished, and he didnae touch me even 
once! 
 
Tell me Doc, wha's the secret? How's the water do that?" 
 
The Doctor says: "Janet m'dear, it's really nae big secret. The water does 
bugger all - it's keeping your mouth shut that does the trick."

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not 
decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts 
because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. 
Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so, too, do 
humans take longer to access information when their brains are full. 
 
Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive 
decline. The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, 
but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of 
older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more. 
 
Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they 
get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a 
memory problem, it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise. 
 
SO THERE!! 
I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can't remember 
their names. So, please forward this to your friends; they may be my 
friends, too.

One Sunday morning, the priest noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of 
the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names with 
small American flags mounted on either side of it. 
 
The seven year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the 
priest walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, "Good 
morning Alex." 
 
"Good morning Father," he replied, still focused on the plaque. "Father, 
what is this?" he asked the priest. 
 
The priest said, "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women 
who died in the service." 
 
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, 
little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, "Which 
service, the 9:45 or the 11:15?"

His request approved, the Bulletin Newspaper photographer quickly used his 
mobile phone to call the Townsville airport to charter a flight. 
 
He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport. 
 
Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger. 
 
He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, 
and shouted, 'Let's go'. 
 
The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off. 
 
Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, 'Fly over Mount 
Stuart and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the 
hillsides.' 
 
'Why?' asked the pilot. 
 
'Because I'm a photographer for the Bulletin' he responded,' and I need to 
get some close up shots.' 
 
The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, 
finally he stammered, 'So, what you're telling me, 
is . . ... You're NOT my new flight instructor?'
