I love magic(sleight of hand). I once tried walking on water and nearly drowned. However I did walk on fire (1400 degrees) and did not feel it! We were the 1st firewalkers in Toronto. Bill Currie was our mentor. That was in the early 80's. Those were the days my friends. Bill was a healer, hypnotist. He sure rocked my set of beliefs to it's roots. I will tell you funny stories about the bus driver taking us to where the fire walk took place, in a place called "The Funny Farm", off the Don Valley. More to come.
Dishonour is an ABSENCE of HONOUR. CURE; Practise HONOUR
Disrespsct is an ABSENCE of RESPECT CURE; Practise RESPECT
Disease is an ABSENCE of EASE CURE; Practise EASE, EASE, EASE.
Stress is the Killer! Maybe now that the whole world is in a deep recession, we will after a little bit, slow down. Thank whatever God we believe in for what we have. We have have seen how fast mammon can disappear. Thank God for your health, family, children etc. No matter what condition you're in, there is always a reason to give thanks. When you do that, you will find EASE coming into your life and OUT goes DISEASE.
On the bus on the way to the Firewalking location our mentor,Bill Currie, told the ladies to remove any stockings,nylons etc. as they would burn and of course anybody with a "WOODEN LEG" (Joke, but then again maybe not). At this point the bus driver craned his neck back under his armpit. He asked me what the hell was going on. When I told him he said wait 'til I get home tonight and tell the wife. I still have that image in my mind of him telling her. I'm sure she smelled his breath!
Just another thing Bill pounded in to our minds was "Thoughts are Things" So whatever thoughts we DECIDE to dwell on/ that's a thing being created.
It's another form of the old saying "Be careful, what you wish for".
Two prisoners looked through their prison bars, One saw MUD, the Other STARS!
Believe me ! I know !
It's your choice, where to LOOK !
Our choice folks. We are in control. We have the power of God/Universe/ or whatever you want to call it, on our side.
WHAT THE MIND CAN CONCEIVE AND BELIEVE, IT CAN ACHIEVE!!
Before anything can be created eg, wealth,health etc. It must first be seen, in minute detail, in the IMAGINATION. It takes a "little" practice to still the mind. Try breathing IN through you nose and OUT through your mouth, holding 'til the count of 10, in between. This will help to STILL THE MIND. Ps. I'm still not a Billionaire!!! Maybe I don't want to be. ! !
God and I, in space alone
And nobody else in view;
Where are the people " God"?, I asked
"The friends that I once knew"?
"That was a dream", The Great God said!
"A dream that has ceased to be true"
"There were no people living or dead
There was nobody else but YOU"
.Hello Rev. if you read this please give me a shout. I hope you're well.Terry lol
Some years back the "G7" met and agreed to give.07% to the most needy in the world. Shortly thereafter our Government reneged and cut the amount as did most other Governments. I wonder why we have a very serious Recession. I wonder why. "It is in Giving giving that we Receive. I'v found that when I gave something I got a lot more than I gave. Try it. It need not be just MONEY. Some people just need somebody to talk to-somebody to listen to them. IS THERE anybody OUT THERE/ IN THERE? (John Prine) I wish somebody would "Say Hello". There are lots of people saying that tonight. Just pick up the phone and SAY Hello.(John Prine)
Come away oh human child,
To the waters and the wild,
With a Fairy, hand in hand,

I spent my life teaching (learning from) Children. I'm now retired and Boy! Oh Boy! do I miss it. I'm glad I had the privilege.
Thanks Rosa Monardo (1965), Rosa used to do my Day Book. She more or less did the "House Keeping" and allowed me to get on with Teaching, Nicky Durante, Rita Petro, Rosalie Vasile, Bernie and Angie (puppy loves). Barbara Taranoufka. Great kids. I hope they all did well.
These were among the students in my first class in St. David's School, Shaw St. Toronto, Sept. !965! Then of course there was Peter Raymond, one of the funniest and wittiest people I have met. My goodness it's 45 years ago.
There was a very artistic student, Sophie Olecas. Tony Conforti went on to become a teacher and last I heard from him he was Principal of St. Anselm's school in Toronto.

We were very poor and my mother couldn't afford a turkey for Xmas. She bought an octopus instead so we could each have a leg !! She had a real problem roasting it ,though. It kept shutting the gas off!!
I had a pub in Co Clare some years ago. One day a blind man came in. He had a seeing eye dog with him. Suddenly he picked up the dog and began swinging it round his head. I asked him what the hell he was doing and he calmly replied he was just taking a look around.
I wonder what kind of celebrations the ordinary Palestinian mothers and children
are having today. Maybe the State of Israel will allow them to have some medicines. electricity, food etc. What is the "United Nations" doing about this? How many of the UN directives is the State of Israel in Breach of? Lets pray to THE ALMIGHTY ONE to bring peace in our time.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO ALL MY JANGO FRIENDS.
A LITTLE LESS ATTITUDE ! A LOT MORE GRATITUDE !

Two Irish Salesmen, Pat and Mike, were selling Real Estate in the Midwest and their car broke down. There wasn't a house for miles and it was a kind of back road, so NO TRAFFIC. They were really stuck so they started walking. It was finally getting dark when they saw a light in the distance. They made a b-line for the house. A beautiful, buxom, blonde answered the door and they asked her if she could rent them a room each for the nigh. She agreed but warned them that they were not to bother her for the rest of the night They agreed and went to their respective rooms. Pat went to sleep right away but Mick just couldn't sleep and decided to visit the young lady. Next morning they had break fast and left. About six weeks later Pat got a phone call. He called Mick right away. He asked Mick if he had got friendly with the woman of the house that night the car broke down and Mick admitted that he had. Pat asked him if he had used his name while with the young lady, again Mick admitted that he had. Pat said "thank you Mick! She died and left me the farm"!
My Soul mate asked me for something with Diamonds, for Valentine's. I bought her a Pack of Cards.
I met a tourist today and he asked the quickest way to get to Dublin, for the Parade. I asked him if he was walking or driving. He sarcastically replied, "driving of course". I said there you have it. That's the quickest way to get to Dublin.
When I had the pub, in Co. Clare; Ready for this.... Dan Quayle, yes Vice President, Dan Quayle walked in the door. He had 4 Security men with him. I was really surprised to see him in Ireland, with all that POTATO stuff. Let's face it though, he knew what country he was in and his left from his right and Im sure he knew when he had sex, or sexual relations.
My Partner and I were just talking about that potato stuff and I must admit I have to stop and think before I answer. It really is not that easy, especially when you go to the plural, because then you have POTATOES. Maybe Sex was easier. Surely you should know when you had that.
I remember when I was in primary school having a problem with North and South. The teacher said the top of the page was always North. What happens then if you turn the page upside down?? I told you it ain't that easy. Please don't tell anybody that I was that THICK.

An unusual Happening. Sometime around '70/80. My wife then and I were invited to a party in New York. It was to cerebrate her first cousin being awarded Irishwoman of the year, in her work for Tourism Ireland, When my wife and I showed up at the airport we were informed that the plane was full and that we should have confirmed our return flight. So they put us up in a hotel, at La Guardia, Airport. They gave us a free dinner with a bottle of wine included. They gave a free trip to Toronto and refunded our Canadian dollars in American. So we went to New York, stayed in a hotel, had dinner and then flew back next morning and got expenses back in American Money. So when we were told we would not be going we retired to our hotel and proceeded to the bar to have a few drinks before dinner. I ordered a whiskey sour, and a Michelob for myself. When the waitress brought the drinks naturally I asked how much. She said the drinks were paid for by the "Gentleman! at the other end of the lounge, with the "Ten Gallon" hat and the cowboy boots and then she pointed to all the money, in front of him, on the Floor. She said anybody who wishes can take it. Nobody has taken the money, yet, but he has been buying drinks all day. I accepted the drinks and waved to him in gratitude. I just could not get my head around this. We wondered what the hell was going on. He had been buying drinks all day and there on the floor in front of him was a pile of money, probably at least a thousand by a quick, VERY QUICK, estimate.
I just couldn't get that pint down me and then ordered the same again and one for the "Cowboy" but I said to bring his drink to me and you guessed it . I delivered it to him myself. My wife said not to, just wave and let the waitress deliver it. But NO! This was too much. I would have spent the rest of my life wondering. So I went to him with outstretched hand in friendly gesture and the beer, in the other. I will admit, I was a trifle nervous. Gun, Knife or Handshake?
He got to his feet and holy, of holies, he was tall. He must have been 7' at least.
He had a good firm handshake. Nothing limpwristed about this ole boy. I said my name is Terry and he said "What a coincidence, so is mine, sit down". I told him I was with my wife and asked him to join us which after a slight hesitation, he agreed, asking me if it was ok. We had a few more drinks, during which he told us that he was a Marijuana producer and he came to NYC once a year and made a million each trip and so, the money on the floor and the free drinks. I could see that my wife was very nervous and when he went to the toilet she told me to "Get Rid" of him, which I interpreted as "Ask Him TO Leave", nothing more sinister. When he came back I told him that we had a long day ahead of us and he politely left and that was the end. (Thank God) Just a strange event!
I just made this joke up.

I went to my Doctor recently and told him that I thought I had broken my leg in three places and his reply was "Why do you go to these places"?
A friend of mine, not the sharpest knife in the drawer, was very drunk the other night and he was trying to cross the busy road just outside the pub. Every time he stepped out on the road a car would come speeding by. A policeman (Garda) was walking down the road and saw his predicament and said to him "There's a Pedestrian Crossing just 'round the corner, Paddy". Paddy replied "Well I hope he has more luck than me".
I firmly believe that there is only one Universal Law. WHAT YOU GIVE, YOU GET.
