A Good Read of an Unusual Fictional Story

Chapter XXI Armageddon. My latest work and first one of fiction.
Back cover Bio
Adam opens the Holy Bible to the book of Revelations chapter 21. The year is 4013. You might ask how he came to end up two thousand years into the future. This is an exciting story that follows a nuclear submarine across the North Atlantic. A disused Second World War army research base situated in the Highlands of Scotland. An ultra secret meeting held deep in the bowels of the Vatican. It is a fast pace and exciting story that takes the reader on a long and mysterious journey.

Review by: Syrphian on Jan. 10, 2015 :
I really enjoyed reading this book! It is a great story with many twists and turns while giving you something profound to think about. The author has a real talent and I believe a future in fiction. The book starts off interesting right from page one with the big mystery in the sand! The author’s writing style is free-flowing which makes it easy to read. This gives the reader a more pleasurable reading experience while with some author’s styles it is more like a text book experience than a novel. I believe that this book has film potential, too.
Somehow he combined a whiskey bottle, time travel, Hunter River Prince Edward Island, a Naval submarine, Jesus, complex machinery, a spy, a world terrorist crisis, the Vatican, Islam, Adam & Eve and a great mystery story all in one book! You have to read it to see what I mean – you will not be disappointed as it is well worth it.
So, in summary, a ‘good read’ as they say… I enjoyed it from page one until the final page. I must admit that the ending was a surprise as I figured that it would conclude the way I thought it should. I am sure that is what the author wanted me to believe. The actual ending was rather different, and a complete and thought-provoking surprise. A very clever ending indeed!
I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a good story, well-written, exciting and a pleasure to read. You will not be disappointed and you will be wanting more from this author when you finish this book!

A Little Weekend Humour

Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching TV and drinking a beer when he hears a knock at the door. When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Chinese man, clutching a clip board and yelling,

‘You Sign! You sign!’ Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts.

Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Chinese man starts to yell louder, ‘You Sign! You sign!’

Nelson says to him, ‘Look, you’ve obviously got the wrong man’, and shuts the door in his face.

The next day he hears a knock at the door again. When he opens it, the little Chinese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads. He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson’s nose, yelling,

‘You sign! You sign!’

Mr Mandela is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he pushes the little Chinese man back, shouting: ‘Look, go away! You’ve got the wrong man. I don’t want them!’ Then he slams the door in his face again.

The following day, Nelson is resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door again. On opening the door, there is the same little Chinese man thrusting a clipboard under his nose, shouting, ‘You sign! You sign!’

Behind him are TWO very large trucks full of car parts.

This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little Man by his shirt front and yells at him: ‘Look, I don’t want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name! Who do you want to give these to?’

The little Chinese man looks very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says:

(Get your best Chinese accent ready)

‘You not Nissan Main Deala?’

Ed Dies was

Ed came home drunk one night, slid into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber. He awoke before the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter said, ‘You died in your sleep, Ed.’

Ed was stunned. ‘I’m dead? No, I can’t be! I’ve got too much to live for. Send me back!’

St. Peter said, ‘I’m sorry, but there’s only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken.’

Ed was devastated, but begged St. Peter to send him to a farm near his home. The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking and pecking the ground..

A rooster strolled past. ‘So, you’re the new hen, huh? How’s your first day here?’

‘Not bad,’ replied Ed the hen, ‘but I have this strange feeling inside. Like I’m gonna explode!’

‘You’re ovulating,’ explained the rooster. ‘Don’t tell me you’ve never laid an egg before?’

‘Never,’ said Ed.

‘Well, just relax and let it happen,’ says the rooster. ‘It’s no big deal.’

He did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! He was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg — his joy was overwhelming..

As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard…..

“Ed, wake up! You Shit the bed!”

Women’s Work

“You know why a woman’s work is never done?”

“They don’t get up early enough!”

Smart Dolphins

Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?

I said “Nothing.”

She said, “You did that yesterday.”

I said “I wasn’t finished.”

Open House Appreciation

To show his appreciation to the community, our base commanding officer held an open house. This included a free meal in the mess hall.

I was busing tables when I noticed a family leaving a large tip. “Excuse me. We can’t accept tips,” I told them.

“It’s not for you,” said the woman. “That’s to help send your cook to culinary school.”

Groaner: Balancing the Account

In the days before calculators, accountants were frequently unable to get their debits to balance with their credits. So, in order to overcome the discrepancy, they often created a bogus account titled “Taste” to store the unbalanced amount and allow the books to balance.

Unfortunately, the government soon heard of this practice and declared a new law: there would, from this point on, be no accounting for Taste.

MVI. Still no Response????

I began by first writing the Minister of Transportation Steven Myers on 27th November 2019,.wrote him a second time a week or two later, still no response? Wrote the premier opposition leader and liberal party leader December 6th 2019, no response. Allowing that it was the Christmas season and people were busy (even politicians apparently) I decided to wait until the New Year. Sent out the same letter to the same people early January 2020, only one recent response to date from leader of the liberal party Sonny Gallant. He stated he would raise the issue. While I appreciate his response I’m not holding my breath that the liberals will demand changes to the MVI. This issue was raised in 2013 when liberals were in power. The minister of transportation at the time was Paula Biggar and she said inspection of new cars was necessary because of all the manufacturer defects!! I have to give her credit for coming up with such an utterly nonsensical excuse!. I realize this is probably not one of the more outstanding issues facing government. Nevertheless, they are collecting taxes for a none required service that Islanders are paying for but not receiving. It needs to be changed to bring us into line with other Atlantic Provinces . I will remind government, the liberals were quick to agree to HST increased to 15% to bring us into line with other Maritime provinces. It’s time this MVI requirement on new vehicles be amended, it’s not something that needs a study, all that is required is changing the law with the stroke of a pen.

This is the letter send out several times

As we begin the new year of 2020 it is time our provincial government answered some questions on why motorists are being gouged. I want to begin with the motor vehicle inspection, I have no argument that cars need to be safety checked on a reasonable time schedule. However, why are we now the only Atlantic Province requiring a safety inspection on new vehicles? When a new car is purchased the owner has no choice but to pay the MVI fee on that purchase. The approximate cost is $35, but may vary from dealer to dealer. The individual dealership keeps a portion of the fee and the remainder goes to government. I’m not sure how this might be termed in legal speak, but to most people it would be considered fraud, or a fee for no service received. The MVI requires the following checks, remove front and rear wheel from car to check for brake pad/shoe wear. If rear brakes are drum type must pull one brake drum to check for shoe wear. Check front end parts for wear or damage, also check all brake gas lines and hoses, check exhaust system is in good condition with no leaks. Check body panels and floors for rust, check windshield glass for cracks or chips. Check wipers, horn and lights and rear view mirror are working correctly. Finally check all tires for tread wear. Did I miss anything? This is a mandatory requirement on every new vehicle sold on PEI. But does anyone really believe dealerships actually have their mechanics carry out all these checks on a new vehicle sitting in the showroom? I can only think the government is turning a blind eye to this unjustified revenue. One would think they are already collecting a fair amount of sales tax on not only new but used vehicle too. When is enough going to be , enough? Time this requirement was changed to match other Maritime Provinces.

In concluding I have to express my disappointment that I did not at the very least get a response from Peter Bevan Baker??????God Bless and keep reading

Car Memories!

As I posted two photos of cars with yesterday’s blog, I thought today I would pass along a little more info on them. After all there were both old, unusual, and rare, if indeed they still exist which is doubtful. I’ll start with the sports car, it was a 1936 BSA Scout. A very unusual design for the era. Front wheel drive with a 10 hp side valve engine. The layout too, was a very unusual front wheel drive system.  Directly behind the fire wall sat the inline four cylinder engine. In front of the engine came the four speed gear box, and in front of that the differential (rear axle). The gear shift was also a very odd set up, the long lever disappeared between the clutch and brake pedal, travelled along the engine and into the gear box. Braking was questionable because there was only a single brake drum on the front axle. The 1936 Hillman, the other car in the photos, was more conventional, front engine, also a four cylinder side valve of 10 hp. Then a four speed gear box delivering power to the rear differential as was normal for the day. The Hillman had four wheel drum brakes, four doors and two electric wipers. A much more practical car when compared to the Scout. Both could carry four people, but more comfortably in the saloon car. There was no convertible top with the BSA, just the frame with a few ragged pieces of fabric remaining. Not the ideal vehicle for England’s damp inclement weather! I got soaked more than a few times, but I was young and carefree 60 years ago. Today I enjoy all the luxuries of Toyota Corolla, cruise, power steering, power brakes, power windows, automatic locking, heated seats, heated rear window, three speed wipers and so much more than my old Hillman or BSA. I might still wish I had the BSA for car shows, but not as my only means of transport, I have become too spoiled with modern technology!! God Bless and keep reading and driving!

A day of Reflection.

It’s funny how I see others as getting old but don’t see it happening to me. But happening it is, and I’m abruptly reminded each morning getting out of bed! I remember as a young sailor never once thinking I’d one day be old. Anyway no use complaining, we have to accept the hand dealt to us. When I was a young man it was traditional to get the key to the door on your 21st Birthday. Up until that time I had to be home by 11pm or find myself locked out. Not really, our door key hung on string on the inside of the door, just had to slip my fingers through the letter slot and pull it out and unlock the door! Now that was 1940-50s security! On my twenty first birthday young love played a big part. My sweetheart at that time was stationed in the North of Scotland. She was a Wren in the Royal Navy women’s service. I was stationed in Portsmouth at the opposite end of the country. But young love was strong and I travelled on a weekend to meet her in Edinburgh. I travelled over night arriving early Saturday morning. She arrived at noon and we had a brief time together, I left Sunday morning at 10 am for the long journey back to Portsmouth. It was expensive and I spent the largest part of the weekend on trains, that was my 21st birthday 60 years ago. Please don’t ask why, but I still have my 21st birthday card all these years later. Maybe someday it will be an artifact and collectable, but I somehow doubt that because at this moment I can’t find it!!!. The two photos – At age 21 the two cars in the post are both a little older than me. The Saloon car is a 1936 Hillman Minx, and the open sports car a 1936 BSA Scout FWD. God Bless and keep reading.

Salty Sailor Tales from the Mess Deck!

The most popular time to hear the most outlandish tales aboard ship happened at Tot time (rum issue). Some were almost believable others less so. There was the story told by an officers steward. On my last ship there was (the tales were always from another ship) a young sub Lieutenant was served a kipper for breakfast. He complained and demanded bacon. The steward said sorry sir we have no bacon, I want bacon he demanded several more times. Finally the steward lift his kipper and slapped the subby across both cheeks saying “ we have no f#+#king bacon. However the most unbelievable story was told aboard HMS Cockade one tot time in 1956. The lads were talking about merchant ships supposed to dip(lower) their ensigns when passing a warship. A young Welsh lad piped up with his story. He was working on B gun aboard a destroyer in the Med. A freighter passed by without dipping his ensign, the Captain ordered the destroyer about and raced after the freighter. He leaned over the bridge cowling and said “ Mr Richards put a shot across her bow”. Poor old Taffy for the rest of the commission was known as PASAHB, an acronym for, put a shot across her bow. I heard so many tales whilst in the Navy but, “put a shot across her bow” remains the most hilarious of them all.  God Bless and keep reading.

A Dangerous and Growing Problem!

NURSE IN GERMANY SENDS MESSAGE TO THE WORLD (An open letter – Eye opener

Yesterday, at the hospital, we had a meeting about how the situation here and the other Munich hospitals are unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle the number of migrant medical emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the main hospitals. Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff, and we women are now refusing to go among those migrants. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units. Many migrants have ADS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we in Europe do not know how to treat.*

If they receive a prescription to the pharmacy; they learn they have to pay cash, this leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. *They abandon the children to the pharmacy staff with the words: So, cure them yourselves. So the police are not only guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also the large pharmacies.

We ask openly where are all those who welcomed the migrants in front of TV cameras with signs at train stations ? Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.

Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million.Most of these people are completely unemployable. Only a minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under 6, many emaciated and very needy. If this continues and Germany re-opens its borders, I am going home to the Czech republic. Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even for double the salary back home. I came to Germany to work, not to Africa or the Middle East! Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see, but worth the read…especially the cleaning woman, who has cleaned every day for years for 800 euros & then meets crowds of young men in the hallways who just wait with their hands outstretched, waiting for free, and when they don’t get it, they throw a fit. I really don’t need this, but I am afraid that if I return home, at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic. If the Germans, with their systems, cannot handle this, then guaranteed, back home will be total chaos…

You – who have not come in contact with these people have absolutely no idea what kind of badly behaved desperadoes these people are, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation.

For now, the local hospital staff have not come down with the diseases these people brought here, but with so many hundreds of patients every day of this is just a question of time.
In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8 month old on the brink of death, who they dragged across half of Europe for three months.The child died two days later, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The pediatric physician had to undergo surgery and the two nurses are recovering in the ICU. Nobody has been punished. The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we can only inform you through e-mail. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed the doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis infected urine into a nurses face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum, he would have gone straight to jail and later to court. With these people so far, nothing has happened.

And so I ask: Where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations? Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their uncomplicated, safe lives. I would round up all those greeters and bring them here first to our hospitals emergency ward as attendants! Then in to one of the buildings housing the migrants, so they can really look after them there themselves, without armed police and police dogs, who, sadly today, are in every hospital here in Bavaria.

Is this situation coming to your country?

This is indeed an eye opener and food for thought! God Bless and keep reading.

A Little Weekend Humour

Golden Phone (Thanks to Barrie for this one)

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.

So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would start by working his way across the USA from South to North. On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs, when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read ‘$10,000 per call’.

The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by, what the telephone was used for.

The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.

The American thanked the priest and went along his way. Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same looking golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.

She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God. ‘O.K., thank you,’ said the American.

He then travelled all across America, Europe, England, Japan, New Zealand. In every church he saw the same looking golden telephone, with the same ‘$US10,000 per call’ sign under it. The American decided to travel to Australia to see if Australians had the same phone.

He arrived in Queensland in Australia and again, in the first church he entered in Brisbane, there was the same looking golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read, ’40 cents per call.’

The American was surprised, so he asked the priest about the sign. ‘Father, I’ve travelled all over the world and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in all of them, the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?’

The priest smiled and answered, ‘You’re in Queensland now, son – “This is Heaven,” so it’s a local call’.

Jewish Fathers, Christian Sons (Thanks to Tom for this one)

A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was about a year away from his Bar Mitzvah but was sorely lacking in his knowledge of the Jewish faith.

To remedy this he sent his son to Israel to experience his heritage. A year later the young man returned home. “Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers,” the son said. “It was wonderful and enlightening, however, I must confess that while in Israel I converted to Christianity.”

“Oy vey,” replied the father, “what have I done?”

So in the tradition of the patriarchs he went to his best friend and sought his advice and solace. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated his friend, “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.”

So in the traditions of the patriarchs they went to the Rabbi. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated the Rabbi, “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.

What is happening to our sons? Brothers, we must take this to God,” said the Rabbi. They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty.

As they prayed the clouds above opened and a mighty voice stated, “Amazing that you should come to Me. I, too, sent My Son to Israel.”

Busy Day At Pearly Gates (Thanks to Doug for this one)

The first applicant of the day explains that his last day was not a good one.

“I came home early and found my wife lying naked in bed. She claimed she had just gotten out of the shower.

Well, her hair was dry and I checked the shower and it was completely dry too. I knew she was into some hanky-panky and I began to look for her lover.

I went onto the balcony of our 9th-floor apartment and found the guy clinging to the rail by his fingertips. I was so angry that I began bashing his fingers with a flower pot. He let go and fell, but his fall was broken by some awnings and bushes.

On seeing he was still alive I found super human strength to drag our antique cedar chest to the balcony and throw it over. It hit the man and killed him. At this point the stress got to me and I suffered a massive heart attack and died.”

Saint Peter thanked him for his story and sent him on to the waiting room.

The second applicant said that his last day was his worst.

“I was on the roof of an apartment building working on the AC equipment and I stumbled over my tools and toppled off the building. I managed to grab onto the balcony rail of a 9th-floor apartment but some idiot came rushing out on the balcony and bashed my hands with a flower pot.

I fell but hit some awnings and bushes and survived, but as I looked up I saw a huge chest falling toward me. I tried to crawl out of the way but failed and was hit and killed by the chest.”

Saint Peter couldn’t help but chuckle as he directs the man to the waiting room.

Saint Peter is still chuckling when his third customer of the day enters.
He apologizes and says “I doubt that your last day was as interesting as the two fellows that arrived here just before you.”

“I don’t know,” replies the man. “Picture this, I’m naked, hiding in this cedar chest…

Don’t Mess with old folks!

The old lady handed her bank card to a bank teller and said,
“I would like to withdraw $500.”

The female teller told her,
“For withdrawals less than $5,000, please use the ATM.”

The old lady then asked, “Why?”

The teller irritably told her, “These are rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a queue behind you.”

She then returned the card to the old lady. The old lady remained silent… But then she returned the card to the teller and said, “Please help me withdraw all the money I have.”

The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and said to the old lady, “My apologies Granny, you have $3.5 million in your account and our bank does not have so much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come again tomorrow?”

The old lady then asked, “How much am I able to withdraw now?”

The teller told her, “Any amount up to $300,000”

The old lady then told the teller that she wanted to withdraw $300,000 from her account.

The teller did so quickly and handed it to the old lady respectfully.

The old lady kept $500 in her bag and asked the teller to deposit the balance of $299,500 back into her account.

Unnecessary carbon emissions.??

While the liberal government are intent on taxing us into using less gasoline, as a solution to climate change. While five provincial governments are fighting not to pay this carbon tax. While Australia is ablaze with more than a billion wildlife dead. While most Canadians continue as usual unable or unwilling to change their life styles. While Climate change grows with each passing day we do nothing. I say this because I believe a large percentage of Canadians are just either ignoring or are ignorant to the crisis. Take a look at drive through windows at Tim Hortons, MacDonalds etc, hundreds of vehicles idling and polluting while waiting for a cup of coffee. How hard would it be to park, shut the engine off and walk into the coffee shop.??? Remote starters, more unnecessary pollution. Oh dear! You can’t expect me to get into a cold car, that would be a ridiculous hardship. Hmm, maybe you will experience worse hardships if your house floods, burns, or is destroyed in a tornado. Are Canadians just lazy? Not just Canadians, it appears this is the problem all across the Western nations. We want convenience, we don’t want to wait, we shouldn’t have to walk, we expect everything now. We expect everything easy and we expect it yesterday. Well folks, I hate to burst your bubble but things are going to change and not to suit your present life styles. Alas I’m wasting my time, no one is listening, no one cares, no one is prepared to change or even modify their habits. God Bless and keep polluting!
