Mozart Joke

When Mozart passed away; he was buried in a churchyard.
A couple days later, the town drunk was walking through the cemetery and heard
some strange noises coming from the area where Mozart was buried.

Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it.

The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming from the grave.
Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate.

When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said,
“Ah, yes, that’s Mozart’s Ninth Symphony, being played backwards.”

He listened a while longer, and said,  “There’s the Eighth Symphony, And it’s backwards, too.
Most puzzling.” So the magistrate kept listening;
“There’s the Seventh… the Sixth…the Fifth…”
Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate;
he stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery.
“My fellow citizens, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s just Mozart decomposing.”

Lest we forget

Today is the 11th day of the 11th month.
aka, Remembrance Day

Today, we remember the fallen soldiers of  WWI


The Unknown Australia Soldier

    Twentieth century warfare resulted in millions of unknown dead resting in unknown graves.
   Of Australia's war dead from World War I and World War II, 35 527 (about 35 per cent) have no identified grave. They are commemorated on Memorials to the Missing.

   The names of many Australians who died in World War I appear on memorials along the Western Front, including the names of about 18 000 men of the Australian Imperial Force with ''no known grave'.

   In 1993, to mark the 75th anniversary of the 1918 armistice, the Australian Government exhumed the remains of an unknown Australian soldier from the Adelaide War Cemetery, near Villers-Bretonneux, France for entombment in the Australian War Memorial’s Hall of Memory, Canberra.

   The funeral for the Unknown Soldier was held on 11 November – Remembrance Day – 1993. Before proceeding to the Hall of Memory, the Unknown Soldier’s coffin was placed on the Stone of Remembrance outside the Memorial where the then Prime Minister, the Hon. Paul Keating, delivered the eulogy:

… We will never know who this Australian was. Yet he has always been among those we have honoured. We know that he was one of the 45,000 Australians who died on the Western Front, one of the 416,000 Australians who volunteered for service in World War I … and one of the 100,000 Australians who have died in wars this century. He is all of them. And he is one of us …

As Australia’s Unknown Soldier was laid to rest in the Hall of Memory, the late Robert Comb, a World War I veteran, who had served in battles on the Western Front, sprinkled soil from Pozieres, France over the coffin and said, “Now you’re home, mate”.

An email from God

One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behaviour that was going on. So He called one of His angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time.
When he returned, he told God, 'Yes, it is bad on Earth; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not.

God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.'

So God called another angel and sent him to Earth for a time. When the angel returned he went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good.'

God was not pleased. So He decided to e-mail the 5% that were good, because He wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going.

Do you know what the e-mail said?

Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either!!!

Wordless Wednesday - More Rome

Yes, we are in Rome.

cherub #1: This is how you do it, mate
cherub #2: yeah, I'm (not) watching
the crowds at the Vatican - AHHH!!!
Mum really liked walking up and down steps

One of the street sellers - some were selling water bottles.
View from on top of the bus
(and no, I wasn't pretending to be a Spice Girl)

These were EVERYWHERE! Street corners were most popular
The Vatican
If you look closely, you might see the GINORMOUS line to get into the Vatican

Monday, October 8, 2012


There we were, exhausted after thirty hours on and off planes, unable to get into our accommodation for another two/three hours, and quite hungry. What sight we must have been.
Oh well. That’s just part of the experience.

Let me tell you some things about the Italians…

  They drive on the wrong side of the road
 In tiny cars
 Down tiny streets
ok, so maybe this wasn't a street.
close enough.
 They have teeny, weeny coffee cups
 They have the world’s biggest pizza plates
  They are REALLY good painters
And sculptures
Piazza Navona, just down the street
see, the roads are tiny!

they like gelati

a lot

 and anyone who has been to Rome, and did not meet anyone else calling out
"umbrelli, umbrelli" or "half price, half price"
you need an award.

oh, and just in case you didn't notice,
they are driving on the wrong side of the road.

well, the rest of Rome will have to wait.
I have to get on with my science.

bye bye
(for now)
