Spare a thought today

Due to my few days away from home my blog reading has slowed down considerably.  Some blogs I like to keep to read in detail without constant interruption and Ramana‘s is one.

Those of you who visit on a regular basis will be familiar with the name Ramana.  We have enjoyed his wisdom and sense of fun.

Ramana has been a full time carer for is wife and father for some time now and the sudden passing away of his wife Urmeela on March 13, 2009 will be sorely felt on many levels.  To begin with there is the loss of the patient around whom the day was structured, followed by the loss of partner and soul-mate.  Losing a soul mate is like losing part of yourself.

Urmeela and Ramana were blessed with one child, a son Ranjan.

I know you will want to join me in thoughts and prayers for Ramana, his son Ranjan and his father in these sad days and months ahead.

A driver is stuck in a major traffic jam just outside Dublin on the M50 motorway.

“Pensioners” have kidnapped Cowan*, & Mary Harney**, and a bunch of Bankers.

They’re asking for a €30 million ransom, otherwise they’re going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car taking up a collection.”

The driver asks, “How much is everyone giving, on average?”

“A Gallon!
