Remembrance Day 11 November 2011
Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day or Veterans Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries to remember the members of their armed forces who have died on duty since World War 1.
Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War 1 on that date in 1918, as the major hostilities of World War 1 were formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" with Germany signing off the Armistice.
Note: "at the 11 hour" refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11.00am.
A Lady with Attitude
An elderly lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat tight so that it would not blow away in the wind.
A gentleman approached her and said, "Pardon me, madam. I do not intend to be forward but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?"
"Yes, I know," said the lady. "I need both my hands to hold onto this hat."
"But madam, you must know that you are not wearing any panties and your privates are exposed!" said the gentleman in earnest.
The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, "Sir, anything you see down there is 75 years old. I just bought this hat yesterday!"
Live each day as if there is no tomorrow!

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card
into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly.
When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy'.
