Codename

Obama‘s Insulting U.K. Codename’Chalaque’ is Scotland Yard‘s codename for the president on his U.K. visit, but what does it mean when translated?


*******************************

Before President Obama’s arrival in London, The Daily Mail ran a story under the headline “Codename ‘smart alec’: British police label Obama with ‘mildly offensive’ Punjabi word for visit to U.K.” Scotland Yard says its computers randomly picked a codename for Obama, “chalaque,” for his visit to the country. But the newspaper quoted a Sikh community leader saying the name is often used to “denigrate” someone. Yahoo News then picked up the story, featuring it on its homepage under the headline: “Obama Code Named ‘smart alec’ in Britain.”

This is how President Obama signed the guestbook at Westminster Abbey earlier today, where he got a tour from the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall and laid a wreath on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

 
“It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.”

Update: For those who find the European-style date suspicious, the Telegraph reports that a “Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date.”

Japanese Red

These Japanese Red-crowned Cranes were seen at the Akan International Crane Centre in Hokkaido, Japan. One appeared to be the gatekeeper – pronouncing on whether the other two could pass. It captured a humorous moment with members of this endangered species which has been brought back from the edge of extinction by conservation measures.

UNLIKELY TRIO

They make an unlikely trio, but Baloo the bear, Leo the lion and Shere Khan the tiger have forged an unusually strong bond.

Considering that they would be mortal enemies if they ever were to meet in the wild, it is stunning to see their unique and  genuine friendship in these intimate pictures.

Rescued eight years ago during a police drug raid in Atlanta, Georgia, the three friends were only cubs at the time at barely two months old.

They had been kept as status symbol pets by drug barons.

Delivered to the Noah’s Ark Animal Rescue Centre in Locust Grove, Georgia, the decision was made to keep the  youngsters together, because of their budding rapport.
 
‘We could have separated them, but since they came as a kind of family, the zoo decided to keep them together,’ said  Diane Smith, assistant director of Noah’s Ark.    

‘To our knowledge, this is the only place where you’ll find this combination of animals together.’
 
Living with the zoo’s founders for the past eight years, Shere Khan, Baloo and Leo have now moved to a purpose-built  habitat where the US public can now witness first hand their touching relationships.

‘We didn’t have the money to move them at first,’ said Diane.

‘Now their habitat is sorted and they have been moved away from the children’s zoo areas where the public couldn’t really get a good look.

‘It is possible to see Baloo, who is a 1000lb bear, Shere Khan, a 350lb tiger and Leo, who is also 350lbs, messing around like brothers.

‘They are totally oblivious to the fact that in any other circumstance they would not be friends.’ 

Handled by Charles and Jama Hedgecoth, the zoo’s owners and founders, the three friendly giants appear to have no comprehension of their animal differences.

‘Baloo and Shere Khan are very close,’ says Diane.

‘That is because they rise early, and as Leo is a lion, he likes to spend most of the day sleeping.

‘It is wonderful and magical to see a giant American Black Bear put his arm around a Bengal and then to see the tiger nuzzle up to the bear like a domestic cat.

‘When Leo wakes up, the three of them mess around for most of the day before they settle down to some food.’ 
 

Surprisingly for three apex predators with the power to kill with a single bite or swipe of their paw, they are very relaxed around each other.

‘They eat, sleep and play together,’ said Jama.

‘As they treat each other as siblings they will lie on top of each other for heat and simply for affection.

‘At the moment, they are getting used to their new habitat.

‘Shere Khan is being quite reticent about the move, but Baloo, the bear, is very good at leading him on and making him feel comfortable and safe.’  

Explaining that the three ‘brothers’ have always seemed to share a unique bond, Charles said: ‘Noah’s Ark is their home and they could not possibly be separated from each other.

‘You just have to remember who you’re dealing with when you are with them, though. ‘It’s when you forget  that these fellows are wild animals that you get yourself in trouble.’ 

The trio’s new habitat had to be constructed carefully, in order to accommodate its occupants.

Jama said: ‘The clubhouse had to be very sturdy for the guys, because they all sleep in it together,’ 

She added: ‘We had to include a creek, because the tiger and the bear both like to be in water.’

‘Rules Are Rules’

It was a normal day in Sharon Springs , Kansas ,when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina ..


The Bad news:

Just a few miles into the trip, a wheel-bearing became overheated, and
melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail,
creating white hot molten-metal droppings spewing down to the rail.

The Good news:
A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train, and
immediately stopped the train in compliance with the Union Pacific
Safety Rules.

The Bad news:
The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge, with
creosote ties and trusses.

The crew tried to explain to CEO ‘Higher-Ups’, but were
instructed NOT to move the train !

They were instructed
‘The Rules Book’ prohibits
moving the train when a part is defective !

REMEMBER… RULES ARE RULES!
Don’t
EVER/NEVER let common sense get in the way of a good disaster!

The boss wondered why one of his employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee‘s home phone number and was greeted with a child‘s whisper.

Hello ? ‘

‘Is your daddy home?’

Yes, he’s out in the garden ,’ whispered the small voice. ‘

May I talk with him?’

The child whispered, No .’ ;

So the boss asked, ‘Well, is your Mommy there?’

Yes, she’s out in the garden too

& The boss asked; ‘May I talk with her?’

Again the small voice whispered, No .’

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, ‘Is anybody else there?’

Yes.’ whispered the child, A policeman. ‘

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, ‘Well, may I speak with the policeman?’

No, he’s busy. ‘ whispered the child.

‘Busy doing what?’

Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the police dog men.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’

It’s a helicopter. answered the whispering voice.

‘What is going on there?’ demanded the boss, now truly worried.

The search team just landed a helicopter.

‘A search team?’ said the boss. ‘What are they searching for?’

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, Me!

Zsa Zsa in Coma

Husband: Zsa Zsa Slipped Into a Coma

By Audrey Morrison
Wed, 18 May 2011 19:51:32 GMT

zsa-zsa-big.jpgPrince Frederic von Anhalt told TMZ his ailing wife fell into a coma after being rushed to an L.A. hospital on Tuesday for emergency stomach surgery.

Zsa Zsa’s rep John Blanchette confirmed she was admitted because her feeding tube was causing “bleeding … like a fountain.”

Blanchette added that her husband “was worried and hoped she wasn’t dying in front of his eyes.”

Sadly, von Anhalt confirmed on Wednesday that his 94-year-old wife has been unresponsive since 2am.

This is the latest health setback for Gabor who has undergone hip replacement surgery, a leg amputation and was, most recently, hospitalized for pneumonia on May 5.

Happy Mothers Day

 

 MY Mother

 

my MOTHER

Is gentle and kind.
She’s warm and helpful
and my best friend.

It took me awhile to
realize, you see,
Just how much I mean to her,
and her to me.
No one can replace her,
or fill the shoes she wears.

She calls me her ­
“Little Girl”,
but that’s ok;
There’s no better way to show
how she cares.
We’ve been shopping, riding or
having a ‘cocktail’ coffee break,
So many miles now separate;
we must dream of yesterdays.
She worries about me ­
as most mothers do;
So far away it’s hard to
express or convey
How much I Love her:
Today and Always.

*********************************************

With this I decided to inform the ‘friends & family’ on my
e-mail list about the fact that OUR Former President -George W. Bush
Had made a statement to Obama – and perhaps they had not seen or
heard it.

:star:….:::So I wrote those with this:::….:star:

Whether you like Obama or not — Whether you like Bush or not — I think that each of you would agree that we hated BIN LADEN and are happy that he is DEAD.

Maybe you did not hear or see all he said … so here it is…JUST for your INFO NOT Taking sides!

So whether you will agree with what President Bush said to President Obama OR WHAT I said as commenting as so many others did ….maybe you will JUST appreciate MY writing!

** While I’ve not seen or heard the news report of the full response from Former President George W. Bush to President Obama – about the Killing/Death of Bin Laden – I thought why not share with you what he said – (and I’ve also included ((errors & all )) my comment along with so many others). **

:turbopoke::heart:May 1, 2011:heart::turbopoke:

“Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that

American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I
congratulated him and the men and women of our military and
intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission.
They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

:spotlight-left::heart:…..:My comment…..:heart::spotlight-right:

“Congratulations should also go to the courage of this man George W. Bush for what he had to endure and carry on his shoulders. Proud to have backed President Bush for his enduring faith and his compassion, empathy & sympanthy during the days that brought the United States of America to her core. We were a United Nation then – (wish we were now) – One who fought for the Freedom that is suppoose to be the United States of American – the Land of the Free … We need that Freedom back. At least with this news we may feel it again – but be guarded against what may come. President George W. Bush Under pressure YOU prevailed. Now those men & women who you gave hope & love to when you visited will be joyous & thankful & yet continue to watch out for the USA…AND THOSE WHO lost loved ones on September 11th and the Armed Services of those killed or wounded since – for all who were involved can finally get (I hope) a solid good nights sleep.”

“So whether you will agree with what President Bush said to President Obama OR WHAT I said as commenting as so many others did ….maybe you will JUST appreciate MY writing!” …. (pay attention to thes words and the last “”maybe you will just appreciate
MY writing!) …

NOW the person’s response………..

<><><><><><><><><><>><><><><><><>

Them – replying —

:clueless:THEM-1}George W. Bush was a fool, and a lackey of the military industrial establishment. He lead this country into a futile and usless war in Iraq that cost thousands of AMerican lives and 100’s of thousands of Iraqi‘s lives. The taxpayers of this country will be paying for generations to make up for what this buffoon did. If he had kept his eye on the ball Osama Bin Laden would have been captured 10 years ago. Instead he was used as a “shill” so the defense contractors could reap huge profits. Wake up and grab a bit of REALITY if you see it floating by..

My Reply back
—–

:teddy:ME-1}I was not looking for anyone being rude or hostile towards me……..

They replied back again —

:clueless:THEM-2}WELL, then don’t say stupid things! :stupidme: Bush should be tried for treason, and then sent to the Hague for trial as a war criminal!

My Response to that —

:teddy:ME-2}Stupid!!!!!!! – NOT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

As I stated it was not for one side or the other I wad in hope that SOMEONE would appreciate my writing

AGAIN They replied back again –also all of this was written by them in LARGE
format font! WHY I wonder! :?

::ignore::They came back with this …:? ( which clearly they did not understand that
the writing was what I wanted … as I had/have not written in quite awhile )::?

:clueless:THEM-3}Maybe you wrote this in a state of some form of intoxication! Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld LIED to us. They did not “prevail”…They failed to prevail. The only ones who prevailed were the bomb and gun makers who prevailed by making BILLIONS of dollars. They were able to do that because foolish people like you can be lead like sheep. While Bush was standing on the deck of a ship wearing a flight jacket that he never earned, saying “Mission Accomplished”…Americans and Iraqi’s were dying…and this continued for years. War crimes like torture and kidnapping of innocent people happened and Bush justified it with no regard for the Consitiution or International law. Wake up and read rather than try to write that nonsense!

:bulletyellow:<><><><><>…..I’ve made NO response or reply back to this person!..NOR do I ever intend to!…..<><><><><>:bulletyellow:

Clearly this person – which I will not name – does not have any regard for first reading what the sending was/is asking ………First to inform them whether they knew about it / agreed with it or not with any party …. but to maybe appreciate the WAY I wrote it NOT what I wrote about … but how the writing was ….

NOW if you feel like commenting – do so – but it will be rare
if I respond to this Journal post! :iconhug1plz:

And YES Bush should have been acknowledged!

:iconusflagplz:MOST IMPORTANT :iconusflagplz:
Remember all the fallen. Remember the Brave. Remember the 911. Remember today. REMEMBER ALL the Armed Forces joined together to get Bin Laden!

MY Questions about the KILLING of OBL

 Osama bin Laden

 

Twin Towers

9-11-2001

First I would like to know just how they determined and verified that this opersons DNA was done & confirmed within so short a time when in normal circumstances it take sometime months!

Fitst heard that he was killed during last week and confirmed now.

Now when we were told he was in Americans hands/control … now is was buried at SEA!

Then said this happened around three (3:pm) with an iportanta announcement that broke in at 10:30pm …. then leaks started coiming about it … ((( Great News I might add)).

First told/heard that American Navy Seals 20 od then wre involved …. now stating 30-40!

 Some true and accurate facts need to come out!

 Former President George W. Bush

President Obama

But I along with sooooooooo many others are glad and delighted that this ‘man’ and I state that lightly – named Osama bin Laden … IS DEAD…. according to all sorces from reuters – CBS NEWS – NBC NEWS – CBS NEWS – FOX NEWS – & CNN NEWS – REUTERS (was tyhe first I saw via Twitter)……the the news conference from President Obama (wanted to take full credit in my viewppoint) but remember that President George W. Bush was there from the beginning when all this happened and HE is the one that got things going and said WE – the United States of America would eventually get him Dead or Alive!
