Three women friends, one in a casual relationship, one engaged to be
married and one a long-time wife, met for drinks after work.
The conversation eventually drifted towards how best to spice up their sex
After much discussion, they decided to surprise their men by engaging in
some S&M role playing.
The following week they met up again to compare notes.
the single girl
Sipping her drink, leered and said, 'Last Friday at the end
of the work day I went to my boyfriend's office wearing a leather coat.
When all the other people had left, I slipped out of it and all I had on
was a leather bodice, black stockings and stiletto heels. He was so aroused
that we made mad passionate love on his desk right then and there!'
The engaged woman
giggled and said, 'That's pretty much my story! When my fiancé got home last Friday, he found me waiting for him in a black mask, leather bodice, black hose and stiletto pumps.
He was so turned on that we not only made love all night, he wants to move
up our wedding date!
The married woman
She put her glass down and said,
'I did a lot of planning..I made arrangements for the kids to stay over at Grandma's. I took a longscented-oil bath and then put on my best perfume. I slipped into a tight leather bodice, a black garter belt, black stockings and six-inch stilettos. I finished it off with a black mask, ready for action.
When my husband got home from work, he grabbed a beer and the remote, sat down and yelled,
'Hey, Batman, what's for dinner?'

An attractive blonde arrived at the Casino and bet
twenty-thousand dollars on a single roll of the dice.
She said, 'I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude'.
With that, she stripped from the neck down,
rolled the dice and yelled,
'Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!'
As the dice came to a stop, she jumped
up and down and squealed...
I WON, I WON!'
She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.
The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.
Finally, one of them asked, 'What did she roll?'
The other answered,
'I don't know - I thought you were watching.'
MORAL OF THE STORY -
Not all Irish are stupid,
not all blondes are dumb,
but all men are men.

Before I joined I had no real idea how other people lived but my eyes became wide open in disbelief at some of the homes I have been in. I have reported burglaries where the victims own a dog and there is dog crap all around the house some fresh some dried…how people can love like that I don’t know.
One old ladies house was full and I mean full of ornaments.There was just a path to the sitting room where she had a armchair and a table with a TV in on it, and then a path to the kitchen, again there was access only to the cooker and a couple of draws and a cupboard.
The house was full from floor to ceiling with ornaments sat neatly on different styled shelves and glass stands, I was so nervous reporting her matter my colleague had to stay out of the house as he was 6’7;; and would have demolished half the displays being the nimble chap he was.
But she was happy , and as is often the case had no friends or relatives, apart fro a son who had not been around to see her for 3 years,
But one call came in from the ambulance service to assist with a patient. I arrived with another officer and the ambulance crew were stood outside the flat and they had masks on, “Hi says I”, what’s Up”.. “we cant get the woman to come out or even move onto the stretcher”, and to be frank we cant make her and we have no intention of hanging around in there” I look at them a bit puzzled as this was not a police job, I went in the door and it is quite hard to describe the scene.
Imagine first a flat devoid of carpets or furniture, the only things in the flat was a kitchen sink and cupboard and in one bedroom a single bed with three mattresses on it. Lying on the bed was an African female who looked to be about 25 stone, she was dressed in what I can only describe as potato sacks, the smell in the flat was worse than anything I have smelt before and that includes decomposing bodies.
I forgot to mention that the floor.…in every room there were no carpets and every part of the floor was covered in shit…I presumed human shit…not in piles but spread out like someone had used a plasterers spreader smoothed out like some bizarre giant chocolate birthday cake! the shite was about half an inch to an inch deep. Smoothed off carefully right into the corners, and level all over. There was just a path from the front door to the bedroom and kitchen.
All over the shite was thousands of bits of orange peel some black some still orange all over the flat very surreal
Now back to the lady. She was laying on the bed and I could see the mattresses were infested with lice and fleas you could see them jumping all over her.
My colleague Helen spoke to her and said that she should come to the ambulance and go to hospital to get sorted out…” I am not going nowhere you can’t make me”
“ I asked her if she had a friend or any family. She said “ I have no one and no one has me”
We went back to the Ambulance and Helen said to them “The end of the day if she does not want to go with you we cant make her, we will have to get the social up here and go from there”… “Just one other thing you should know guy’s” “ She is Pregnant said the ambulance guy…”in fact I would say she is full term and about to have it”. “Aw Shit said I””.
So what to do,… you have a 25 stone woman covered in vermin and crap who is about to have a baby and refuses to co operate. They never mentioned this one at Hendon.
Being a probationer I did what all good probationers do…spoke into my radio..” lima delta from 413 receiving” Lima delta go ahead”. Can you send the sergeant down to my location!.. “Received” came the reply.
Shortly we are joined by our section sergeant he had about 25 years service he will know what to do. I briefly explain and he goes in and then swiftly out again and says…”F*&$ng hell”. He pondered and then got someone to bring down some protective suits and gloves and masks, we were joined by an old PC who was fascinated by the goings on, he was an old beat bobby who had been the local cop for years.
We all got into white paper suits and the plan was to lift her onto the stretcher and that would be job done we had the power to do so as technically she could be nicked for criminal damage to the council flat and that gave us power to use force and then at hospital we would de arrest her and let the hospital and social services sort it out.
Well after about 3 minutes of trying to get her onto the stretcher without throwing up we gave up, she did not resist but just lay there like a dead weight.
We were in a rock and a hard place …Brian the old beat cop said “Sarge let me have a chat to her.” Be my guest says the sergeant”. Brian goes in and I stand near the door whist he speaks to her.
Well Brian was an avid crystal Palace fan and he stands there and starts yapping on about what sort of season they are having, talking about player stats and describing goals and set plays. He was incessant and speaking non stop. Well after about 5 minutes the woman rolled into a sitting position and stood up saying For god sake shut the F%$K up” she then walked out of the flat followed by Brian who was still rambling on. She got straight into the ambulance and was taken off to hospital where the baby girl was born 2 hours later and taken into care,
A specialist cleaning team had to clean the flat and the other residents either side had to be re-housed the ambulance had to be taken out of service and the A&E department cubicle was shut off for special cleaning,
Many questions come from this. How was she left to get like this who was responsible for her had she been seen by the social services had the neighbours not reported the smell.
It struck me that in a modern society people can live an almost invisible life and not be noticed by anyone until it is far to late.
What happened to the woman ??? she died of a heart attack 7 days later whist getting into a bath….no-one came forward and claimed the body and enquiries could not find anyone who knew her…The flat had been sub let 3 times by the original tenant , and there was no trace of her ever coming into the country, the babies father was never traced.

If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago it would now be worth £4.95, with HBOS, earlier this week your £1000 would have been worth £16.50, £1000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5,
But if you bought £1000 worth of Tennents Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get £214.
So based on the above statistics the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.

Ron Mueck is an Australian hyperrealist sculptor working in Great Britain. Mueck's early career was as a model maker and puppeteer for children's television and films, notably the film "Labyrinth" for which he also contributed the voice of Ludo.Mueck moved on to establish his own company in London, making photo-realistic props and animatronics for the advertising industry. Although highly detailed, these props were usually designed to be photographed from one specific angle hiding the mess of construction seen from the other side. Mueck increasingly wanted to produce realistic sculptures which looked perfect from all angles.

On Mike's wedding day, his father sat him down for a little chat. He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off my pants, handed them to your mother, and said, 'Here - try these on.' She did and said, 'These are too big, I can't wear them.' I replied, 'Exactly, I wear the pants in this family and I always will.' Ever since that night, we have never had any problems. 'Hmmm,' said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try.
On his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen, 'Here - try these on.' She tried them on and said, 'These are too large, they don't fit me.' Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. I don't want you to ever forget that.' Then Karen took off her pants and handed them to Mike. She said, 'Here - you try on mine.' He did and said, 'I can't get into your pants.' Karen said, 'Exactly. And if you don't change your smart-ass attitude, you never will!'

I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me, and we all
could probably use more calm in our lives.
Some doctor on tele this morning said that the way to achieve inner peace is
to finish all the things you have started.
So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and hadn't finished
and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of
Merlot, a bottle of shhhardonay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of vocka, a
pockage of Prunglies, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res
of the Chesescke an a box a chocolets.

A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years.
He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young
couple in bed.
He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair.
While tying the girl to the bed he gets on top of her, kisses her neck,
then he gets up and goes into the bathroom .
While he's in there, the husband tells his wife 'Listen, this guy's an
escaped convict look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail
and hasn't seen a woman in years . I saw how he kissed your neck. If he
wants sex, don't resist, don't complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy
him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very
dangerous. If he gets angry, he'll kill us. Be strong honey. I love you!'
To which the wife responds, 'He wasn't kissing my neck. He was whispering
in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked if we had
any Vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love

The doctor said, 'Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches.
The bad news is that it will require castration.
You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.'
Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He had no choice but to go under the knife.
When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself.
As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life.
He saw a men's clothing store and thought, 'That's what I need... A new suit.'
He entered the shop and told the salesman, 'I'd like a new suit.'
The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, 'Let's see... size 44 long.' Joe laughed, 'That's right, how did you know?' 'Been in the business 60 years!' the tailor said.
Joe tried on the suit it fit perfectly. As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, 'How about a new shirt?'
Joe thought for a moment and then said, 'Sure.'
The salesman eyed Joe and said, 'Let see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck.'
Joe was surprised, That's right, how did you know?' 'Been in the business 60 years.'
Joe tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly. Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked,
'How about some new underwear?'
Joe thought for a moment and said, 'Sure.'
The salesman said, 'Let's see... size 36.
Joe laughed, 'Ah ha! I got you , I've worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old.'
The salesman shook his head, 'You can't wear a size 34.
A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache.'
New suit - £400
New shirt - £36
New underwear - £6

One of the most holy sites in Bhutan, the Guru is said to have flown here on the back of a tigeress and then meditated in a cave, contained within the present structure, for three months.
The monastery (goemba in Bhutanese) was built in its present form in 1692. It suffered a devastating fire of unknown origin during the night of April 19, 1998. Speculation is that the fire was caused either by lightening or an overturned butter lamp. Old photographs and diaries were used to make the reconstruction as close to the original as possible, though there was little documentation of the wall paintings and other artwork housed inside.

I forget how many times I have policed marches and had always the same theme…have a go at the old bill!!!…now a lot of the marches I actually agreed with. It is right that people should exercise their democratic right to protest. It the hypocrites I cant abide…
for instance whilst policing a animal rights march I was walking along with the crowd getting to know my section of the group. But as always the protesters seemed to get satisfaction in thrusting their banners of decomposing dogs and suffering creatures in my direction as though I owned the companies and sold them the animals …
Fair enough they have to vent at someone and I am the nearest face of government they can vent at. However as I said I hate hypocrites and it annoys me when I hear them…..
We had stopped near parliament and as ever some of the protesters were getting angry. You know, the ones that ruin the march for everyone and take away public support.
“Ear you!, you ought to be ashamed of yourself”…this man with about 5 groupies was talking to me….
"Hows that then Sir"? I replied…(there are so many ways to say the word sir)
"You are the Fucking face of fascism you have the blood of all the dead animals on your hands”…his venting had attracted a bit of a crowd and they were paying close attention…probably expecting me to bully and threaten the poor innocent protester.
Aware that he had an audience he continued …"you scar faced wanker, go on, tell all these people why you protect the bastards who bring suffering to so many animals…." the crowd were quite, I have no doubt that they are now expecting me to arrest him for his tirade of insults, which is of course is what he wants, it is part of a plan that some have to up the tension of the march.
“Well sir It is my job to protect you and your friends". I have a duty to look after people like you who have a democratic right to support animal cruelty"
(He thought for about 15 seconds).
”What are you talking about protect me and my friends”, we don’t support animal cruelty
“Well sir you and your friends support cruelty to animals and I am here to allow you to walk about freely”
Some of the crowd are now looking puzzled and taking a close interest in our exchange… and the bloke is looking well confused.
“Ear wot you saying, I hate animal cruelty why do ya think I'm Ear” a rumble of support goes around with a few shouts of “fascist pig”
“Well I noticed during the march that you and your friends are smokers, in fact you have one lit up now…and as the tobacco industry is a supporter of vivisection and has carried out loads of experiments on animals..You my friend are supporting them by buying their products..so you support animal cruelty every time you light up.If you actually cared for the animals you would never by the product of the vivisectionists, after all you would not buy shampoo that had been tested on animals would yo??.”!!..
He looked at me and I could see coming to his lips an intellectual comeback…
”Bollocks”…someone from the crowd chipped in “ He has a good point” someone else shouted “shame on you, put out your fag”.. A murmur goes around and I see a few of the crowd covertly drop their cigarettes and crush them underfoot. The bloke looks at me and opens his mouth like a gold fish…but nothing comes out...my comments have also started fierce debate between smokers and non smokers. The bloke has now moved of into the crowd and just as he is swallowed up by the crowd he turns and gives me the “V” sign…..
I smiled, as for me it was a the sign of a small victory..

You probably found out about the birds and the bees analogy, but this is far more interesting and unusual than those stories. You might be surprised to find out some of the following mating facts and oddities concerning members of the wild kingdom. These practices of animals are almost as varied as our own. Here are the most amazing facts and records in the wilderness when it comes to mating:
10. Indian cobras have one of the toughest battles to wage. They fight, fling at each other, the male trying to place its body next to the female’s. Furthermore, for an hour they even strike at each other. The battle is won after the female puts its head on the ground, to sign submission, time for the male to bring one of his 2 penises into contact with her reproductive organ. This can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 24 hours.
9. The phrase “Don’t let the bedbugs bite!” get a whole different meaning when it comes to mating. The bug make bug pierces a hole in the female’s back to place his sperm. The eggs are rapidly fertilized and the embryos which are born alive.
8. Even though they are one of the largest animals on earth, elephants are one of the gentlest creatures when it comes to mating. At an interval or 3 to 6 months, elephants start looking for a mate. Once this has been found, the round of flirting begins, the male offering the female food or squirts of water. After a month or so, the female eventually gives in and the actual mating can begin.
7. Bisexuality is not that uncommon in the animal kingdom. However, this piece of information beats the first one. A male wrasse (or the Cleaner fish) dominates a group of females but after sometime leaves them. In a group of 6-8 cleaner wrasses there is but one male, the rest are females or juveniles. Out of the remaining females, the most dominant will change sex within a few hours.
6. Scientists have come across creatures that have both male and female reproductive organs. But a class of crustacean, Tanais, has three sexes. Furthermore, a single-celled organism called Paramecium amelia is the record holder for the most number, having eight different sexes. Bisexuality may double the changes of finding a partner but with octosexuality you are bound to find one.
5. Talking about painful rituals, many animals bite each other during mating. A breed of fly scientifically called Serromyia femorata takes a position that resembles kissing and, at the end, the female fly drains out the body content of the male through the mouth. Similarly, the praying mantis begins to devour the male’s head during mating. No worries, he can finish the copulation without it.
4. Another record holder on this subject is the tapeworm. This species has the most sexual organs of any living being, each segment of its body containing a complete set of sexual organs, both male and female. Each segment mates with itself and grows eggs, the worm copulating with itself. The largest tapeworm discovered was over 70 meters in length (230 ft.), had over 11,000 segments or over 22,000 individual sexual organs.
3. The male tick has a big disadvantage but found its way to get around. Lacking a penis, the tick uses his nose to sniff out the females vagina. Once he has enough room, he turns around and deposits his semen. And, to top it off, he then turns around and uses his nose again to push it inside.
2. If you though “going at it like rabbits” was a lot to handle, think again. The rabbits don’t come close to the capabilities of the desert rat. The desert rat can have sex up to 120 times an hour.
1. Perhaps the most amazing fact about animal mating is the size of the sex parts. The record for the largest testes in the animal kingdom is the northern right whale (Eubalaena glacialis), with a pair that can reach up to 2,200 lbs. Whales also hold the record for having the largest penis in the animal kingdom, up to 10 feet long, with a diameter of up to one foot.

10. Explicit discussions of either topic is a faux pas at most cocktail parties.
9. Historically, men have been in control, but there are now efforts to get women more involved.
8. There are many joint results.
7. Both are prominent in university grounds, and are usually practiced indoors.
6. Most people wish they knew more about both subjects.
5. Both involve long and hard problems and can produce interesting topology and geometry.
4. Both merit undivided attention, but mathematicians are prone to think about one while doing the other.
3. Saint Augustine was hostile to both, and Alan Turing took an unusual approach to both.
2. Both typically begin with a lot of hard work and end with a great but brief reward.
1. Professionals are generally viewed with suspicion, and most do not earn high pay.

Many aspects of human sexuality are very puzzling; take celibacy for example.
This can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by environmental factors.
While attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend, Robert and Mary listened to the instructor declare 'It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.'
He firstly addressed the men. 'Can you each name and describe your wife's favourite flower?'
Innocently, Robert leaned over, touched Mary's arm gently and whispered,
'Self-raising, isn't it?'
Thus began Robert's life of celibacy.

Many criticisms of the police are made regarding over the length of time it takes to identify a body and return them back to there loved ones. I can understand the frustration and as a body recovery officer I know the importance of getting the right person to the right family.
Now I know that when I mention body recovery people have an image that the police officers form a line and then go along slowly putting the body parts into a bin liner and then sorting it out later…..this is not the case I cant go into operational matters but I can assure you that the recovery of body parts is meticulously done and every fragment is recorded separately.
On 7/7 bombings the coroner declared that any body fragment bigger than 1 cm would be declared a body part and would be recovered as such.. and we did,… we recovered every last body item and the relatives can be assured that we went to great pains to ensure every bit of their loved ones was returned to them….sorry if it sounds gory but it is important to the relatives that this is done.
Also what seems a simple identification can be anything but. I have witnessed a mother identify her son and when we showed her the body she broke down saying “thank god it isn’t him”…it was but she would not confirm it and she never did accept it …she even refused to go to his funeral stating that it was not him….also in cases where there is nothing to identify police will get DNA from the parent. as is often the case the husband will volunteer to save his wife the pain and to shield her from the id procedure…we have to be very subtle and tell the husband that we would have a better chance with his wife’s DNA and other persuasions…the thing is, sadly dad is often not the Dad ..Disasters have shown this to be a common factor and have caused a delay in identification.
At Lockerbie the Pan Am Bombing one girl was Identified and sent to Canada another to Germany…they were the wrong bodies. they were identified by dental x rays. Who would have thought that both girls could have had identical dental work the same fillings and the same size shape teeth?
In disasters the trauma does very strange things people can look like a black person when in fact they are white…
Identification is important and needs to be right..If it is wrong then it will cause so much more suffering to the relatives..
Other times the police try to do what’s right.
After a woman’s son had been identified she asked for the clothing to be returned. the clothes had been in an awful state as the body of her son had decomposed and the blood stains and mess were awful…the officers washed the clothed and dried they returned them to the mother …when she opened the bag, she sank to her knees crying she turned to the officer and shouted “ YOU BASTARDS”
..What’s wrong asked the police officer!!??
“All his life it was me that washed his clothes how dare you take that final job away from me”..

A few minutes before the church services started,
the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking.
Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church.
Everyone started screaming and running for the back
entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get
away from the evil incarnate.
Soon the church was empty except for one elderly
gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving,
seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate
enemy was in his presence.
So Satan walked up to the man and said, "Do you
know who I am?"
The man replied, "'Yep, sure do.""Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked.
"Nope, sure ain't." said the man.
"Don't you realize I can kill you with one
word?" asked Satan.
"Don't doubt it for a minute," returned the old man,
in an even tone.
"Did you know that I can cause you profound,
horrifying AGONY for all eternity?" persisted Satan.
"Yep," was the calm reply.
"And you're still not afraid?" asked Satan.
"Nope," said the old man.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Why aren't
you afraid of me?"
The man calmly replied, "Been married to
your sister for 48 years."

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement -- not even her parent's nasty divorce.
Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best dressed mother- of-the-bride ever!
A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress!
Jennifer asked her father's new wife to exchange it, but she refused.
Absolutely not, I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm
wearing it,' she replied.
Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, 'Never mind sweetheart. 'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day.'
A few days later,they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, 'Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it.
Her mother just smiled and replied, 'Of course I do, dear.
I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.'
NOW I ASK YOU - IS THERE A WOMAN OUT THERE, ANYWHERE, WHO WOULDN'T ENJOY THIS STORY?

This is a true story and you can find out more by Googling Herman Rosenblat.
August 1942. Piotrkow, Poland.
The sky was gloomy that morning as we waited anxiously.
All the men, women and children of Piotrkow's Jewish ghetto had been herded into a square.
Word had gotten around that we were being moved.
My father had only recently died from typhus, which had run rampant through the crowded ghetto.
My greatest fear was that our family would be separated.
'Whatever you do,' Isidore, my eldest brother, whispered to me, 'don't tell them your age. Say you're sixteen.
'I was tall for a boy of 11, so I could pull it off. That way I might be deemed valuable as a worker.
An SS man approached me, boots clicking against the cobblestones.
He looked me up and down, and then asked my age.
'Sixteen,' I said. He directed me to the left, where my three brothers and
other healthy young men already stood.
My mother was motioned to the right with the other women, children, sick and elderly people.
I whispered to Isidore, 'Why?'
He didn't answer.
I ran to Mama's side and said I wanted to stay with her.
'No, 'she said sternly.
'Get away. Don't be a nuisance. Go with your brothers.'
She had never spoken so harshly before. But I understood: She was protecting me.
She loved me so much that, just this once, she pretended not to.
It was the last I ever saw of her.
My brothers and I were transported in a cattle car to Germany.
We arrived at the Buchenwald concentration camp one night weeks later and were led into a crowded barrack.
The next day, we were issued uniforms and identification numbers.
'Don't call me Herman anymore.' I said to my brothers. 'Call me 94983.'
I was put to work in the camp's crematorium, loading the dead into a hand-cranked elevator.
I, too, felt dead. Hardened, I had become a number.
Soon, my brothers and I were sent to Schlieben, one of Buchenwald's sub-camps near Berlin.
One morning I thought I heard my mother's voice.
'Son,' she said softly but clearly, I am going to send you an angel.'
Then I woke up. Just a dream. A beautiful dream.
But in this place there could be no angels.
There was only work. And hunger. And fear.
A couple of days later, I was walking around the camp, around the barracks, near the barbed-wire fence
where the guards could not easily see. I was alone.
On the other side of the fence, I spotted someone: a little girl with light, almost luminous curls.
She was half-hidden behind a birch tree.
I glanced around to make sure no one saw me. I called to her softly in German.
'Do you have something to eat?'
She didn't understand.
I inched closer to the fence and repeated the question in Polish. She stepped forward.
I was thin and gaunt, with rags wrapped around my feet, but the girl looked unafraid.
In her eyes, I saw life.
She pulled an apple from her woolen jacket and threw it over the fence.
I grabbed the fruit and, as I started to run away, I heard her say faintly, 'I'll see you tomorrow.'
I returned to the same spot by the fence at the same time every day.
She was always there with something for me to eat - a hunk of bread or, better yet, an apple.
We didn't dare speak or linger. To be caught would mean death for us both.
I didn't know anything about her, just a kind farm girl, except that she understood Polish.
What was her name? Why was she risking her life for me?
Hope was in such short supply, and this girl on the other side of the fence gave me some, as
nourishing in its way as the bread and apples.
Nearly seven months later, my brothers and I were crammed into a coal car and shipped to
Theresienstadt camp in Czechoslovakia.
'Don't return,' I told the girl that day. 'We're leaving.'
I turned toward the barracks and didn't look back, didn't even say good-bye to the little girl
whose name I'd never learned, the girl with the apples.
We were in Theresienstadt for three months.
The war was winding down and Allied forces were closing in, yet my fate seemed sealed.
On May 10, 1945, I was scheduled to die in the gas chamber at 10:00 AM.
In the quiet of dawn, I tried to prepare myself.
So many times death seemed ready to claim me, but somehow I'd survived.
Now, it was over.
I thought of my parents. At least, I thought, we will be reunited.
But at 8 A.M. there was a commotion. I heard shouts, and saw people running every which way through camp.
I caught up with my brothers.
Russian troops had liberated the camp! The gates swung open.
Everyone was running, so I did too. Amazingly, all of my brothers had survived;
I'm not sure how. But I knew that the girl with the apples had been the key to my survival.
In a place where evil seemed triumphant, one person's goodness had saved my life, had given
me hope in a place where there was none.
My mother had promised to send me an angel, and the angel had come.
Eventually I made my way to England where I was sponsored by a Jewish charity, put up in a
hostel with other boys who had survived the Holocaust and trained in electronics.
Then I came to America, where my brother Sam had already moved.
I served in the U. S. Army during the Korean War, and returned to New York City after two years.
By August 1957 I'd opened my own electronics repair shop. I was starting to settle in.
One day, my friend Sid who I knew from England called me.
'I've got a date. She's got a Polish friend. Let's double date.'
A blind date? Nah, that wasn't for me.
But Sid kept pestering me, and a few days later we headed up to the Bronx to pick up
his date and her friend Roma.
I had to admit, for a blind date this wasn't so bad. Roma was a nurse at a Bronx hospital.
She was kind and smart. Beautiful, too, with swirling brown curls and green, almond-shaped eyes
that sparkled with life.
The four of us drove out to Coney Island. Roma was easy to talk to, easy to be with.
Turned out she was wary of blind dates too!
We were both just doing our friends a favor. We took a stroll on the boardwalk, enjoying the salty Atlantic breeze, and then had dinner by the shore. I couldn't remember having a better time.
We piled back into Sid's car, Roma and I sharing the backseat.
As European Jews who had survived the war, we were aware that much had been left unsaid between us.
She broached the subject, 'Where were you,' she asked softly, 'during the war?'
'The camps,' I said. The terrible memories still vivid, the irreparable loss.
I had tried to forget. But you can never forget.
She nodded. 'My family was hiding on a farm in Germany, not far from Berlin,' she told me.
'My father knew a priest, and he got us Aryan papers.'
I imagined how she must have suffered too, fear, a constant companion.
And yet here we were both survivors, in a new world.
'There was a camp next to the farm.'
Roma continued. 'I saw a boy there and I would throw him apples every day.'
What an amazing coincidence that she had helped some other boy.
'What did he look like? I asked.
'He was tall, skinny, and hungry. I must have seen him every day for six months.'
My heart was racing. I couldn't believe it.
This couldn't be.
'Did he tell you one day not to come back because he was leaving Schlieben?'
Roma looked at me in amazement. 'Yes!'
'That was me!'
I was ready to burst with joy and awe, flooded with emotions.
I couldn't believe it! My angel.
'I'm not letting you go.' I said to Roma. And in the back of the car on that blind date, I proposed to her.
I didn't want to wait.
'You're crazy!' she said. But she invited me to meet her parents for Shabbat dinner the following week.
There was so much I looked forward to learning about Roma, but the most important things I always knew:
her steadfastness, her goodness.
For many months, in the worst of circumstances, she had come to the fence and given me hope.
Now that I'd found her again, I could never let her go.
That day, she said yes. And I kept my word.
After nearly 50 years of marriage, two children and three grandchildren, I have never let her go.
Herman Rosenblat of Miami Beach, Florida

Legends of "Kliluk, the Spotted Lake" are woven into the Native Indian heritage of the Okanagan Valley. The Indians soaked away aches and ailments in the healing mud and waters. One story cites a truce in a battle to allow both warring tribes to tend to their wounded in the Spotted Lake, "Kliluk". Spotted Lake is visible from the road, 8.8 kms (5.5 miles) west of Osoyoos on Hwy. 3 ....a rare and unique natural phenomenon covering 15.2 hectares (38 acres). It contains one of the worlds highest concentrations of minerals: magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts), calcium and sodium sulphates, plus eight other minerals and traces of four more, including silver and titanium. The therapeutic value of Spotted Lake has always proved interesting, however other uses were found for the minerals. During WWI, Chinese labourers were employed skimming the salts from the surface of the lake. The product was then shipped to Eastern American munitions factories. Yield is said to have reached a ton per day. In the hot sun of summer, the water of Spotted Lake evaporates and crystallizes the minerals, forming many white-rimmed circles: shallow pools that reflect the mineral content of the water in shades of blues and greens.

Surveillance Is a necessary part of policing and it is good to see that the TV depict it so badly. It would be awful if they showed the criminals how we really did it.
I was involved in surveillance and indeed was a surveillance instructor on my unit we would do surveillance duties every 16 weeks for 6 weeks.
We would have certain targets prepared and at the start of the posting we would check our equipment and cars and then attend the briefing for the first job
"Right then" said Chris "the target today is a known burglar and we believe he is quite busy, we are not gonna get this guy in the act, but he is known to flog the stuff himself. So we are gonna see what he does and what he sells".
We go through the pictures and the vehicles he drives all the necessary intelligence is passed on and then tasks are given out.. I am on foot and would deploy should he walk around anywhere some one else is tasked to get a view of his house and to give us all a heads up as to when he leaves his house, this can mean hours of waiting and the location that they were gonna watch from was a bastard.
We are all in position and someone is watching the front door we are around the area paired up waiting and trying not to show out.
Contact, contact, contact, Crackles out over the radio.. He is into his car and off….we follow him and if its ok with you I wont go into the ins and outs of how we do this.. and no it does not consist of any type of bugging or electrical devices just good old fashioned coppering, surveillance style.
He is driving down towards Peckham and he stops by a café and goes in…someone goes with him and we find out he has met with another man …after a cup of tea they get in the car and drive to a lock up and load what is believed to be computers into the boot, they then drive off.
They park up and take a computer from the boot. I am out on foot and am now watching them, I and others follow them to a second hand shop. I am into the shop before them as I have anticipated what they were going to do and when they come in I am in a corner looking at some computer stuff.
They try to sell the computer but no joy. And they leave and go back to the car.
The reason we have not nicked them is if we go to soon we won’t get the evidence. And of course there is a slim chance the computer is legit…I said slim…stop laughing.
They drive off and they stop after a short time again I have spotted the second hand shop before they get there and am in like flin and waiting.
They again try to sell the computer and are talking to the shop keeper…” excuser me mate”…"Excuse me” I have to look and the bloke is looking at me "could you help a second mate" he says looking right at me. I go over and the bloke asks me about the expansion slot capacity, I give him a load of bullshit and as I do I see written on the top of the computer is property of St **** school. I held back a smile the shop keeper declined to buy it and they left. I passed on the info to the rest and some checks were done and the school had been burgled 3 nights ago of 10 computers. Mums had sold cakes and held tombola’s kids had done sponsored walks and bake sales..people in the community had all helped to get a IT unit at the school; and the money raised had gone towards the computers. This bastard took it away in one night.
We followed him until he and his chum went back to the lock up and when they went in we went in screaming and shouting scaring the shit out of them.. the computers were all there and some stuff from another school. They were taken in and I was one of the officers who interviewed our man..
After the usual procedure we questioned him about the lock up …he had no idea about the surveillance…he claimed that he had bought the computer in his car from a bloke who had walked into a second hand shop and the bloke he bought it off had told him that the monitor was in a garage in Peckham. He paid the bloke, but the bloke was busy so he gave him the keys to the lock up so that he could get the monitor..(Trusting bloke). Who was the person that he bought the computer off then…”dunno it was today in * second hand shop”.
“Can you describe him”? “Yeah, he was about six two, short hair and glasses , he had a blue shirt on and oh yes and he had a scar on his face just like yours”…….his eyes widened and the penny dropped..
