This & That Including What Ails

Rise In Community Cases In Lil Red Dot

I was sad to hear in the news that a cluster of Covid cases has erupted in a ward in Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

A patient, a nurse and a doctor. Immediately that ward was locked down. By today, 4 more wards locked down and infections have spread.

Covid-19 moves really fast and what was surprising was that the vaccine did not give the health care workers immunity from Covid-19, despite 2 doses taken.

I sincerely hope that with the vaccine they took, they will not succumb to Covid but live.

This reminds me that safe distancing and keeping good hygiene and masking up is important.

The vaccine does not mean we can throw our masks away.

Our real life cases have shown and proven that with vaccination, masks and PPE Covid still managed to infect the health care workers.

Please please don’t stop wearing your masks, thinking that being vaccinated you are safe.

Take care. Mask up. Covid is alive and circulating amongst us.

Young Children Making Us Laugh Over Beer


A handful of 7-year-old children in the UK were asked what they thought of beer.

There were some interesting responses, but the last one is especially touching:

“I think beer must be good. My dad says the more beer he drinks the prettier my mum gets.”
Tim, 7 years old


“Beer makes my dad sleepy and we get to watch what we want on television when he is asleep, so beer is nice.”
Melanie, 7 years old


“My Mum and Dad both like beer. My Mum gets funny when she drinks it and takes her top off at parties, but Dad doesn’t think it is very funny.”
Grady, 7 years old


”My Mum and Dad talk funny when they drink beer and the more they drink the more they give kisses to each other, which is a good thing.”
Toby, 7 years old


“My Dad loves beer. The more he drinks, the better he dances. One time he danced right into the pool.”
Lily, 7 years old


“I don’t like beer very much. Every time Dad drinks it, he burns the sausages on the barbecue and they taste disgusting.”
Ethan, 7 years old


“I give Dad’s beer to the dog and he goes to sleep.”
Shirley, 7 years old



“My Mum drinks beer and she says silly things and picks on my father. Whenever she drinks beer she yells at Dad and tells him to go bury his bone down the street again, but that doesn’t make any sense.”
Jack, 7 years….🤪🤣

I Think They Actually Do This As I Experience It


Poor Labelling In English


Best Packaging


Not The Ending Expected😆

An Englishman’s wife steps up to the tee and, as she bends over to place her ball on the tee, a gust of wind blows her skirt up and reveals her lack of underwear.

“Good God, woman! Why aren’t you wearing any undies?” her husband demanded.

“Well, you don’t give me enough housekeeping money to afford any.” The Englishman immediately reaches into his pocket and says, “For the sake of decency, here’s £20. Go and buy yourself some underwear.”

Next, the Scotsman’s wife bends over to set her ball on the tee. Her skirt also blows up to show that she too is wearing no undies.

“Blessed Virgin Mary, Aggie! You’ve no undies. Why not?” She replies, “I can’t afford any on the money you give me.” He reaches into his pocket and says, “For the sake of decency, here’s £10. Go and buy yourself some underwear!”

Lastly, the Irishman’s wife bends over. The wind also takes her skirt over her head to reveal that she, too, is naked under it.

“Sweet mudder of Jesus, woman! Where are yer drawers?”

She too explains, “You dinna give me enough money ta be able ta affarrd any!”

The Irishman reaches into his pocket and Says, “Well, fer the love ‘O Jesus, here’s a comb. Tidy yerself up a bit.”

Laughs – Oops Too Much Said

A Priest was being honoured at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish.

A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.
However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited:

“I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.

The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it.

He had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had an affair with his boss’s wife, taken illegal drugs, and cheated on his wife.

I was appalled. But as the days went on I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.’…

Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late.

He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk:
“I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived,’ said the politician.

‘In fact, I had the honour of being the first person to go to him for confession.”
