TBD on Ning


If you are similar to me, and you no longer go off to work everyday,

you cannot wait to turn your computer on in the morning

to check out what's come in overnight,

as there is always a time lag between different countries,

and so, with this in mind, I am going to leave some of my

email Inbox content from time to time,

which can vary from really funny stuff,

all the way through to the serious items.

Naturally, I won't be inserting any private information

about the senders and their addresses etc,

I'll simply be posting what may be interesting or funny.

Please feel free to reply, comment and/or add your

content also, just remember to delete any

private details that are not to be included here - Hoot-hoot!

This first one is from one of my online friends in America,

and is NOT intended to start any political debates,

but as I live in Australia, I thought this was interesting ;


You had better be sitting down when you read this! ((UNBELIEVABLE))‏

-- This  oil belt extents north into Manitoba Saskatewan and Alberta . . . . .John Bohna was in North Dakota last year to check it out and tipped me off on this.Ther's opportunity here but where or what does one invest in ? ? ? ? B R .


 You "will" pay $5 a gallon + again and you won't complain loud enough to make a difference, RIGHT!

Here's an astonishing read.  Important and verifiable information : 

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. Was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer;  how much oil does the U.S. Have in the ground?"  Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together."  Please read below. 

The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.  It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana ..... Check THIS out: 

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... At $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5...3 trillion. 

"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst. 

"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reportsThe Pittsburgh Post Gazette.  It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.'  It stretches from Northern Montana , through North Dakota and into Canada .  For years, U. S. Oil exploration has been considered a dead end.  Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves..... And we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.  And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL! 

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.  And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006! 

U.. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World 

Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006 

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels.  On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling? 

They reported this stunning news:  We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.. Here are the official estimates: 
- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia 

- 18-times as much oil as Iraq 
- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait 

- 22-times as much oil as Iran 

- 500-times as much oil as Yemen 

- and it's all right here in the Western United States . 

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy......WHY? 
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.  That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find?  Think again!  It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? 

Got your attention yet?  Now, while you're thinking about it, do this: 

Pass this along.   If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices - by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain. 

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book. 
By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!! 
GOOGLE it, or follow this link.  It will blow your mind.

I understand.

Here's another -

Subject: Four old retired guys.


Four old retired guys are walking down a street

in Yuma,  Arizona .

They turn a corner and see a sign that says,
 "Old Timers Bar - ALL drinks 10 cents."

They look at each other and then go in, thinking,

This is too good to be true.
  The old bartender says in a voice that carries

  across the room,

"Come on in and let me pour one for you!

What'll it be, gentlemen?"

  There's a fully stocked bar,

so each of the men orders a Martini.

In no time the bartender serves up four iced
Martinis - shaken, not stirred - and says,

"That'll be 10 cents each, please."
The four guys stare at the bartender for a moment,

then at each other. They can't believe their good luck.

They pay the 40 cents, finish their Martinis,

and order another round.
Again, four excellent Martinis are produced, with the
bartender again saying, "That's 40 cents, please."

They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity gets the better of them.
They've each had two Martinis and haven't even spent a
dollar yet.

 Finally one of them says, "How can you afford to serve
  Martinis as good as these for a dime apiece?"
  "I'm a retired tailor from Phoenix ," the bartender says,
  "and I always wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the
  Lottery jackpot for $125 million and decided to open this
  place. Every drink costs a dime. Wine, liquor, beer - it's
  all the same."
  "Wow! That's some story!" one of the men says.
As the four of them sip at their Martinis, they can't help
noticing seven other people at the end of the bar who don't
have any drinks in front of them and haven't ordered
anything the whole time they've been there.
Nodding at the seven at the end of the bar, one of the men
asks the bartender, "What's with them?"    
The bartender says, "They're retired people from Australia,

They're waiting for Happy Hour when drinks are half-price."


Your game, lol!

Years ago I enjoyed reading a series of books by well known 

author Neale Donald Walsch titled "Conversations with God"

this was decades before I knew I would own a computer,

and now I receive a daily note from Neale which I am

happy to share with you here...

(Yes, my nickname is Lane in these series)


On this day of your life, Lane, I believe God wants you to know...

...that the future is brighter than ever. Not just humanity's

future, but your own, personally.


Things have shifted. The energy has been altered. You

can feel it if you deeply tune in. This shift is not your

imagination, nor is it merely on a national or global

level. There is a shift in you.


Feel it today, and use it to propel you to a wonderful

tomorrow. In fact, do better than feel the energy. BE

the energy. Be its Source.Then watch the conditions

of your own life change.


Love, Your Friend....


Thanks Kooner,  and I have heard it said that a particular book

can find it's way into our hands at precisely the right time.

And, for me, ever since I read Neale's books,

I continue to have my own convo's with Him

and have now grown accustomed to the most

uncanny series of co-incidences and outcomes

in my world.

Lol, lol, good one luvy1950,

perhaps that little ol' lady used to be blonde as well. 


Here's one for today,



Manure... An interesting fact

: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common.

It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a byproduct is methane gas of course. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. 
Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening 

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction ' Stow high in transit ' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ' , (Stow High In Transit) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day. 

You probably did not know the true history of this word. 

Neither did I. 

I had always thought it was a golf term.

We'll see, lol, thanks Kooner,

I just feel lucky seeing that I am a single person in my older years

that we have this medium as a way to remain connected to the

outside world in the time we are living in now.

I am thankful for my little home and roof over my head I have,

but around here, well, there are a lot of folk with health issues,

mobility problems, aches and pains, so the convo's with the

neighbors revolve around that, then of a night time, 

no later than around 9pm, all the lights are out except for

one other person and myself, and there are 40 units here,

so, my computer is my life-line to remind me I am still

in the land of the living, lol.

Kooner, that's exactly what I think - yaaaaaaaay !

This is one of my more regular emails;



“He was like a man owning a piece of ground in which, unknown to himself, a treasure lay buried. You would not call such a man rich, neither would I call happy the man who is so without realizing it.”
-Eugène Delacroix



Thanks luvy, I love the jokes that keep us smiling,

along with the real-life stuff as well.
