Newsletter and jokes 17 March 2017

Hi all 
It's pretty much an adult weekend at the movies this week, which for some 
lucky people is a four-day break.  
The headline release is chapter two of the John Wick saga, featuring high 
action. We stay on the action theme with local release Jagveld (based on  
the novel by Deon Meyer), then mix in some romance and fast cars for 
Bollywood release Machine. Finally we ramp up the tension with Miss Sloane, 
local release The Tribe, and Bollywood's Trapped. 
On the previews side there are previews on Tuesday for Disney's upcoming 
live remake of Beauty and the Beast (which might possibly rewrite the March 
opening record books Stateside, where it opens this weekend), as well as 
the genre-bending Get Out, which has solid scores from the critics and  
public alike. 
Enjoy :-)

Bob stood over his tee on the 450-yard 18th hole for what seemed like an 
He shifted on his feet, looked up, looked down, shifted again, but didn't 
start his swing. 
Finally his exasperated partner asked, "What is taking so long?" 
"My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse," Bob explained. "I 
want to make a perfect shot." 
"Good grief!" his companion explained. "You don't have a snowball's chance 
in hell of hitting her from here." 
A rewrite of an oldie... 
The Pope went on vacation for a few days to visit the rugged mountains of  
He was driving along near the campground when he heard a frantic commotion 
just at the edge of the woods. He found a helpless Democrat wearing shorts, 
 sandals, a 'Vote for Hillary' hat and a 'Save the Trees' shirt. 
The man was screaming and struggling frantically, thrashing all about and  
trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly bear. 
As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers wearing Go  
Trump shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum slug right into 
the bear's chest. The two other men pulled the semiconscious Democrat from  
the bear's grasp. Then using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off  
the bear. Two of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their  
pickup truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the  
back seat. 
As they began to leave, the Pope summoned all of them over to him. "I  give 
you my blessing for your brave actions! "  he proudly proclaimed. 
"I have heard there was bitter hatred between 
Republican loggers and  Democratic environmental activists, but now I've  
seen with my own eyes  that this is not true. 
As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, "Who was that guy ?  
"Dude, that was the Pope," another replied. "He's in direct contact  with 
Heaven and has access to all wisdom. 
"Well," the logger said, "he may have access to all wisdom, but he  don't 
know squat about bear hunting.  By the way, is the bait still alive or do 
we need to go back to California and get another one ? 
Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget 
what that purpose was? 
Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses. 
Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing 
through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, 
separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files 
away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate 
for the new locale. It's not aging, it's the door! 
Thank goodness for studies like this. 
One night a nurse was making her rounds in a nursing home. While walking 
down the hall, she came across an open door. She looked in and saw old 
Frank sitting up in bed pretending to drive. 
She then asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?' He replied, 'I'm driving to 
The nurse smiled at him and carried on making her rounds. 
The next night as she walked past Franks room she saw the same thing. 
Again she asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?' He replied, 'I'm driving to 
Toronto, it's a two day trip you know!' 
The nurse smiled at him and carried on making her rounds . 
Five minutes later she came across another open door and looked in. 
She saw Bill pretending to dance with someone. She then asked, 
'Bill, what are you doing?' 
Bill replied, 'I'm dancing with Franks wife, he's gone to Toronto for a 
couple of days...'. 
Hi Bob, 
I really need your advice on a serious problem: 
I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. 
The usual signs: if the phone rings and I answer, the caller hangs up; she 
goes out with the girls a lot. I try to stay awake to look out for her when 
she comes home but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, last night about midnight 
I hid in the shed behind the boat. When she came home she got out of 
someone's car buttoning her blouse, then she took her panties out of her 
purse and slipped them on. 
It was at that moment, crouched behind the boat, that I noticed a hairline 
crack in the outboard engine mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld 
or do I need to replace the whole bracket?
