Good Morning Ananth,
Where on earth do find such a wealth of information.
your last half dozen place names remind me of an occasion when I was visiting the company headquarters in Tuebingen South Germany and I was asked to pick up some UK visitors from the airport in Stuttgart and entertain them for the evening.within thirty seconds of meeting them I realised that they were upper crust and I would have to be on my best behaviour, no beer hall that evening!! I decided to take them to an upmarket restaurant on the Schwabische alb, on the way we passed a town boundary sign which read "Wankheim" (heim in German means home)The lady sitting beside me chuckled and said "what an interesting home life these people must have"The ice was broken and they enjoyed the beer hall.

Dear John.
Thank you for your compliments and am glad you liked the contents. I love reading and surfing the net as most of my livihood depends on it after my tryst with cancer. I keep looking for things when I have time that I feel will make people smile and have a small laugh.

There is a great site where everything funny, rare, unbleivable and gret sayings, pictures etc.are available. Try a link to www.lifeisajoke.com - I am sure you will enjoy the site.

May I ask, John which was the Organization you worked for in Germany, as I too worked for many a year with Mercedes Benz and finally had to give up my job becsue of cancer coming my way. I was heading Sales and Marketing Indian subcontinent and then went on for overseeing production in Mexico and South Africa. However, those days, the best years of my life, regardless of all the business etc. I have are just not comprable to my work. I was the first employee of Mercedes Benz India and help set up and design our showrooms and sales network. I cannot describe my feelings regarding Mercedes as I still recieve the same kind of respect that I used to get when I was there withen the Organization.
With warm regards and wishing you a very happy christmas and a happy new year,
Ananth
Good Morning good people,
Lorraine,
It makes me happy to think that I have brought a smile to your face,I have always had a sense of humour in fact I have often said that the last part of me to die will be my sense of humour.When you can laugh at yourself people laugh with you,but if you can't laugh at yourself people laugh at you.
Ananth,
I worked for Chemische Fabrik Tuebingen. The son of the founder was a friend of mine and he invited me to join the company in 1976, at that time there were about 200 employees, when I retired in 2001 there were many times that number and the company did business in more than 50 countries and had daughter companies in thirty.I don't claim credit for this growth but I suppose I did my bit. I worked mainly in UK and Ireland and for a while I was responsible for the business in Canada and part of the business in Yugoslavia.All of the technical staff had a particular specialist knowledge and were on call to travel anywhere in the world if that knowledge was required.
The original factory is at Bismarckstrasse 102 alongside the beautiful river Nekar,this is now a technical and admin centre and the manufacturing plant is situated in nearby Dusslingen. If you were connected with Mercedes I think you probably visited this area at some time, perhaps to see the castles at Hohenzollern and Sigmaringen.For a while Germany was my second home and I never tired of being there, I equated with the German way of life.
I enjoyed my working life but now I often wonder how I coped with the extensive travelling and long hours,perhaps my 71 years are making me lazy.

17. You've got Windows on your laptop.

And the number one way to tell someone their fly is unzipped...

1. I thought you were crazy, now I see your nuts.

John (or should I call you sir- as that was what I was taught and have always adhered by that), Your resume is most fascinating and I can well understand how you care for Germany as your second home. Its just as I consider Barcelona in Spain as mine. Its been seven long years since I travlled for the first time and its been a long journey - but have lasted out pretty well. Australia ( Melbourne) - Heathrow - Barcelona and will be flying back Barcelona- Heathrow and the New Delhi. I know this is my last trip so I had to make the trip to make up for some old mistakes I had made as youngster in my early twenties and then sort out a whole lot of legal problems with our shipping company in Australia - which I was given the total power of attorney. I had to make the required changes to ensure my wife Sonya and kids - Varun and Arjun have one of their homes there Down Under and have enough assets to live well. The same applied for Barcelona but on a different level all together - here is where I had made the mistakes and had to rectify them and am glad that I managed to do so.Now the next top back to India - where all my legal work has already been completed. Then its time to relax.
The auto expo starts in Delhi on the 21st. of January and its going to ba huge affair with all the top German cars showing all their top modeles. I have helped design the Mercedes Benz stall and hope fully will get a thank you note, though I really do not expect it as I really do care for the Oragnization.
I do hope I have the pleasure of meeting you one of these days as it will truly be wonderful to hear all about your work and experiences. As I mentioned your resume is fascinating and am sure I will learn much more about life if I do get that chance.
With lots of warm regards and as you mentioned keep smiling and keep retaining your sense of humor.

Good evening Ananth,
Thank you for the latest batch and for the link(lifeisajoke)I spent a while on that site this afternoon.
I don't know where you get the idea of calling me sir,the only people who do that are the traffic police when they stop me with some strange notion that I have been driving too fast,which I would never do of course.I think the police the world over get these quaint notions which brings me to a policeman tale:-
I had to set up a plant in Gnilane in Macedonia about 15 years ago, and I was booked into an hotel in Skopje about an hour's drive away. On the second day I found that I could save 20 minutes drive by a short cut which was not shown on the map I used this each day afterwards.
One evening a policeman stopped me and chuntered on in Serbo Croat which I don't speak so I asked him if he spoke English, his blank look suggested that he didn't so I tried German again a blank look French provoked the same response so I showed him my passport, his face lit up and he said ah! Inglesey and waved me on.After about one week the interpreter arrived, a lady called Rabar, she looked rather like the one time Israeli premier Golda Meir only by comparison Golda was quite pretty.
As I turned off the main road on to my short cut she bellowed "mister Spencer STOP this is a military zone stop and they will shoot you. I don't know what you think but this didn't sound a very inviting proposition to me so I dove on.
Lunch that day looked dreadfull so I decided on a liquid lunch of local wine and Albanian brandy,Rabar objected to this saying the alcohol limit for driving was nul,nul,nul.On the way back to Skopje the policeman was there again and Rabar said now you are in trouble ,you will spend tonight in prison you don't think about me how will I get back to the hotel, I have to admit that her problem troubled me rather less than what I was facing. I stuck my passport against the window and shouted "Dobi Jenia"(I think that means goodbye)he grinned and waved me on. Years later Rabar was still telling people about this incident and how she could not understand how I got away with it, I never did tell her that I had met the same policeman a few days earlier.
Best Wishes for the festive season

Dear John,
My father was in the army and we were taught to give respect to anyone who had achieved something in life and I am sure you have - by calling them Sir. Even though I have a lot of elder people working for me - they call me Sir and I havetried my best to get them to cll me by my name - but I have no reason why they refuse to. Seeing the mess in life you have been though and the misery I have - I think it is okay to call each other by our first namesSmiler

I am attaching some more jokes and hope you enjoy them just as much as the others and keep posting more amusing things that have taken place in your life as I will - all the twists and turns which has left a lot of people amazed.

I have just completed seven years of no eating or drinking orally( am on a peg tube) and the tracheostomy which the doctors luckily kept it in such a way that had the found any way to help me get back to eat - I would not ned it in any case. I have both my larynx intact but are usless as I breathe and talk to through my stoma. Well - I used to do that till a few months ago - when I created "An Orator" as I call it. Its made of high grad silicon a fits really well onto the stoma button and opens only inwards and has jsu enough space to exhale comfortably. The moment the air gets suck in - I have normal speech. The doctors are trying them out on other patients and so far have been pretty happy with its progress. The imported robotic ones are not just expensive but have to be imported into the the Country - and its all upto the importer when he wants to imprt it. The normal price for the robotic one is about 300 US$ and all that mine costs in 50 cents- which include packing , distribution and the profit margin!
I am truly looking for more posts from your end.
With warm regards from Barcelona at the moment,
Ananth


WALKING CORPSE SYNDROME
Deluded patients think they have lost body parts or their souls, and often believe they have died. Also called Cotard's syndrome, the mental disease has been found in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

WEREWOLF SYNDROME
Two year-old Abys DeJesus grew dark, hairy patches on her face. Doctors said she has a condition known as Human Werewolf Syndrome. The disease is called werewolf syndrome because people with it look like werewolves - except without the sharp teeth and claws. In Mexico, a large family of men had hair that covered their whole face and body. Two brothers were even offered a role in the X-Files TV series, but they turned the offer down.

BLUE SKIN DISORDER
A large family simply known as the "blue people" lived in the hills around Troublesome Creek in Kentucky until the 1960s. They were the blue Fugates. Most of them lived past the age of 80, with no serious illness - just blue skin. The trait was passed on from generation to generation. People with this condition have blue, plum, indigo or almost purple skin.

ALICE-IN-WONDERLAND SYNDROME
A patient's sense of time, space and body image are distorted. People may appear tiny or patients may feel that part of their body shape or size has been altered.

VAMPIRE DISEASE
There are people out there who go to great lengths to avoid the sun. If they are caught in the sun, their skin will blister. Some of them have pain and blistering as soon as the sun touches their skin. Ok, so they're not actually vampires. They don't drink blood and sleep in coffins, but they do suffer from a rare disease that has vampire-like symptoms.

JUMPING FRENCHMAN DISORDER
The main characteristic is that patients are extremely startled by an unexpected noise or sight. It's not just twitching when someone sneaks up behind you. Patients with this disorder flail their arms, cry out and repeat words. First identified in some of Maine's lumberjacks of French-Canadian origin, the odd reflex has been identified in other parts of the world, too.

ELEPHANTITIS
Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is best known from dramatic photos of people with grossly enlarged or swollen arms and legs. The disease is caused by parasitic worms, including Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and B. timori, all transmitted by mosquitoes. Lymphatic filariasis currently affects 120 million people worldwide, and 40 million of these people have serious disease. When an infected female mosquito bites a person, she may inject the worm larvae, called microfilariae, into the blood. The microfilariae reproduce and spread throughout the bloodstream, where they can live for many years. Often disease symptoms do not appear until years after infection. As the parasites accumulate in the blood vessels, they can restrict circulation and cause fluid to build up in surrounding tissues. The most common, visible signs of infection are excessively enlarged arms, legs, genitalia, and breasts.
Dear Lorraine,

Weird Stories of the Year - 2005

A taxi driver in Dallas, Texas, was prosecuted for sprinkling dried faeces on pastries in a grocery shop. Customers had complained that the fresh-baked items smelled and tasted like manure.

A 29-year-old woman in the UK admitted that she had not washed her hair in 11 years.

A traffic warden slapped a parking ticket on a car which had its dead driver slumped at the wheel outside a shopping mall in Sydney, Australia. The warden failed to notice the man inside and issued the parking fine two days before the body was discovered.

Odd fish with human faces caused a sensation in South Korea. They were actually mutants born of carp and leather carp - but they looked really scary and spooky.

A straying couple in Jordan both started sizzling affairs in cyberspace. But the bad news for both is they found out they were married to each other.

A British bank had to apologise to a customer after they sent him a debit card bearing the name "Mr Dick Head". Very embarrassingly for the card owner, he did not spot the mistake until he tried to buy something at a supermarket.

A parcel that vibrated and made strange noises sparked off a bomb alert in a German post office. Workers contacted the owner, who was forced to explain the contents - they turned out to be an inflatable sex doll.

A cat chewed the toes off the right foot of an elderly woman with senile dementia while she was asleep at a home for the aged in Japan. Workers found the 88-year-old woman bleeding from her feet, with all the toes missing from her right foot. Paw prints of a cat were found on the floor of the room.

A giant 13-foot (3.9m) python exploded after attacking and attempting to eat an alligator. Rangers in the Everglades National Park, Florida, found the snake lying dead with the 6-foot (1.6m) alligator protruding from its middle.

Dog lovers mourned the death of Sam, the world's ugliest dog. Sam became a celebrity after winning an ugly pet contest in the US twice. When Sam died, its owner said: "I don't think there'll ever be another Sam. Some people might think that's a good thing."

A sparrow nearly ruined a world record attempt at dominoes when it flew in through an exhibition centre window and knocked down 23,000 tiles. Organisers shot the little bird, causing an outcry. As a tribute, the bird's body will be displayed in a museum.

A court in Ontario acquitted a man of sexual assault charges because he suffered from "Sexsomnia" and was, as he claimed, asleep at the time of the incident.
Good Evening Ananth,
the "old saying" which you just made up about laughter is a bit of good advice.
It reminds me of someone who always finished a posting on this website with:- you don't give up laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you give up laughing. I think this is so true.
Keep Smiling Razzer
John
Hello John,
How are you - keeping well, I am sure. I have been told by a lot of people that I had a great sense of humor and also realsied ,when I contracted Cancer that as there was no way I could turn back the clock of life - it was making it easier if one kept smiling and sharing the reason to smile with others. What you said is equally true and I really wish more and more people would subscribe to this rather then talking all day and night about cancer. Though I understand this is a cancer forum - I am all in favor of helping people but people also must help themselves as this is one way to forget problems and have a good laugh (even if the joke is one oneself).
Keeping your post in mind - I have this strong feeling you will never ever grow old!!!
Take care and and warm regards,
Ananth
TALKING CLOCK

Proudly showing off her newly leased downtown apartment to a couple of friends late one night, a drunk Female yuppie led the way to her bedroom where there was a big brass gong hanging on the wall.

'What's that big brass gong for?' one of the friend's asked.

'Issss nod a gong. Issss a talking clock' she drunkenly replied.

'A talking clock - seriously?'

'Yup.' 'Hmmm (hic).'

'How's it work?' the second friend asked, squinting at it.

'Just Watch' she said.

She picked up a hammer, gave the gong an 'ear-shattering bash ' and stepped back. Her three mates stood looking at one another for a moment in astounded silence.

Suddenly, a voice from the other side of the wall screamed 'For f*#k's sake, it's ten past three in the f*#king morning!!!'
