Friend Sandra asked THOCBDC to post this photograph of an icy heart. She said that this is a message to someone.


PS: Yikes, just when THOCBDC made a major career move, the bronze was pulled from the pedestal and the whole area became a parking lot for mismatched pieces.


Eight days ago (January 16), when I deposited my first cache, everything there had been in-place for years if not decades; and I thought that the piper hiding behind my car would never get moved.

After lunch at an Italian restaurant just across from The Oriental shop at Siam Paragon we took a boat from the Sheraton/River City side of the river to the Millennium Hilton where we had dinner at Prime.


Why is our waitress in tears?

Do you ever need a really good reason not to wear your wedding band when you leave the house? OK, so this is not the wedding finger but it still delivers the message.


OMG! I just realized that this is the 'bird' finger.

Dinner: finger looking (licking?) good.


PS: OMG Does it really exist?

Virgin discovers 'image of right slapper' on piece of toast

Devout Catholic and committed virgin Mary Pleasance claims to have been chosen by God to be first to witness the miraculous vision of 'The Old Slag' on a piece of toast.

Mary, 22, from Ballydehob in Ireland, claims that she placed on ordinary piece of white sliced bread into her toaster, but it popped up with the clearly defined image of a loose woman flaunting her breasts. 'I realized immediately that it was a message about the ungodliness of modern woman – this was God telling me to stick to my path of chastity, not to fall into 'the toaster of hell' where this sort of sex-mad woman resides.'

Mary's local priest was very interested to see the image of the semi-naked woman. He even asked to be left alone for a while to contemplate the religious meaning of 'The Lady in the Bra'. Soon, Christians were travelling hundreds of miles to The Shrine of Mary's Toaster, but all attempts to repeat the miracle failed, and finally Mary refused to continue buying loaves of sliced white bread and butter and marmalade. But the Pope has declared the miraculous piece of toast to be one of the sacred snacks of the one true church, and has been given a copy of the image to place beside his bed in the Vatican.

When all the excitement had died down, it was put to Mary that in fact God might have been trying to tell her the exact opposite of what she initially believed; that God was holding this slapper up as the image of modern feminine perfection, and that Mary should aspire to be more like her. Mary contemplated this for some minutes and then promptly lost her virginity to the cameraman from the Sky News Team.

PPS: Why Men Don't Write Advice Columns

Dear Ted,

I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom with a neighbor lady making mad passionate love to her. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years.

When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he went into the back yard and heard a lady scream, had come to her rescue but found her unconscious. He'd carried the woman back to our house, laid her in bed, and began CPR. When she awoke she immediately began thanking him and kissing him and he was attempting to break free when I came back. But when I asked him why neither of them had any clothes on, he broke down and admitted that he'd been having an affair for the past six months.

I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago, and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. I don't feel I can get through to him anymore.

Can you please help?

Sincerely,
Susie Fox


Dear Susie,

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the clips holding the vacuum lines onto the inlet manifold for air leaks. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber. I hope this helps.

Ted

Thailand's newly elected government (Parliament and Prime Minister) took to their offices this week ... ending more than a year of soft military rule.
