I like that style!
I share my portion of truth-telling in LinkedIn, sometimes with wry humor and sometimes posting whistleblower stuff.
Just for a short while, to see what happens when I shake the pillows of those comfort chairs, with people from all over
the world sitting in them, focussed mainly on doing business. Minding their own and probably wishing me to shut up
and join them.
I posted a you tubby with the 5 hrs. visual report on the rebellion and fighting in the Ukrain, shared by Burgundia here,
No hilarious content at all, but kept from the eyes of the Western world and therefore posted by me. The usual comment
on these kind of pretty sad posts is "Who said, life is easy?" That's the spirit overthere. It's interesting to do some research
in that world of entrepeneurs, to see what makes them tick in different parts of the world. Now, there's a "discussion" on the
sparring of the Jewish and Arabic world, by sharing words of leaders, be it rabbi or imam. Members can comment on them.
Very few do.
You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed it.
We received a Christmas card from relatives who live near the Ukraine and in Germany who are very concerned about what is happen and expressed their fears. They included a photo of the Festival of Lights at the Brandenburg Gate (the sculpture on top of it was created by one of my husband's relatives). It was there hope that the light they create there is carried around the globe affecting all of humanity in a peaceful way. It was 25 years ago that the Berlin Wall came down. We were there just a week before this happened and the whole political situation left quite an impression. Even driving from Budapest to Austria was enlightening as part of the landscape near Budapest reminded me of the Sacramento area where some of family fleeing from there ended up relocating near Sacramento. I remember thinking at the time how similar it all looked except for the politics. Relatives in Europe are much more politically minded following what is going on because of how close they are to one another and how politics affect them.. not so much in the US which is like a turtle in the middle of the ocean away from much of Europe's realities.
I think most people in the US are too under-educated to make any type of intelligent comment on this. They've never lived in a country that's been invaded. Nor do they understand what it means to live in that type of environment. Sad but true. I'm glad you are taking the information to the next level and sharing it. Mahalo nui loa.
Tickle Me Elmo
There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.
Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 am.
The next day at 8:45 am there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new
He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.
The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.
At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has a roll of plush Red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.
The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.
The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena ..
'I'm sorry,' he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, 'but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday...'
'Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles.
