Many tree rings ago, in about 1620 more or less, there was a small forest in the old world of England. The trees in this forest wore funny hats and big shoe buckles on their roots and were known as Pilgrims, although no one really knows why they were called such an un-tree like name.
Why they were not called the Oaks, or even Quercus Roburs, the Latin name for English Oak, because lots of trees spoke Latin back then, remains an historical mystery to this day.
All that aside, life was okay for the PilgrimTrees, but day by day they grew more discontent in the old Forest. Their unhappiness stemmed from the fact that they were not allowed freedom of exercise.
So they decided to split for the New Forest.
Actually, to be historically accurate, they had already split once to another forest called Holland, a crazy kind of place where the trees wore wooden shoes which the Pilgrims thought was just too weird. Worse yet, in Holland, they had too much Read the rest of this entry »

Cartoon Dialog: Woody and Mimosa are in the GrocerTree store choosing a frozen Bummerball Turkey — you know, the ones that are packed in the plastic netting.
Woody: What do you think of this turkey, Mimosa?
Mimosa: Ummm – I don’t know. You’d think the turkeys would see the net and just run.
Have a happy Thanksgiving – J. Daniel
The free WoodChips calendars have been very popular, with many people around the world downloading them. So as the year 2013 draws to a close, I thought to see which calendar had been downloaded the most.
The Lady of Leisure calendar cartoon pictured above was the winner, so I made sure this calendar would be available again in 2014.
The cartoon’s idea of having to keep many plates spinning in the air at one time certainly resonated with many women, which is not surprising because the cartoon was actually created by women. I originally got the spinning plates idea from a woman as a request for Read the rest of this entry »

Wow – there sure is a lot of confusion in healthcare and government these days. It’s hard to know what’s going on.
And those Viagra commercials just add to the whole thing with their dire warnings about using their product… although I had a buddy of mine tell me over the phone the other day that if he had a four hour “election” he’d be so happy he’d post a picture on Facebook about it. But he suddenly took that statement back… don’t know why exactly, if it was “too much information” or the fact that he noticed an NSA drone circling over his house shortly after the phone call.
Anyhow, I guess the country will get it all sorted out in the end (chuckle). For some reason I keep thinking about Winston Churchill’s line when he said “You can always count on America to do the right thing… after they had tried everything else.”
Have a nice day – J. Daniel
Caption: Confusion abounds in Healthcare these days…
TV Announcer: So men, try the magic blue pill Viagra… WARNING! If you have an e#ection lasting more than four hours seek medical help immediately!
Mimosa (bartendress): I don’t get it! What do elections have to do with the medical field? Is this more government meddling in healthcare???.
Woody (at the bar): Hmmm… not exactly sure where to start with this explanation…
Setting: Sign says YewZappum Hunting Lodge – Featuring Drone Deer Hunting.
A hunting lodge is in the background. A deer is intently looking at Woody and the deer hunter from behind the sign – using binoculers.
And a drone in the sky has just released an explosive missle going straight for the deer.
Woody: It’s the latest thing in deer hunting. Plus we include the meat packaging for free.
Hunter: Awesome… so how much meat would that be exactly?
Woody: Oh, about a pound of dee rburger… whatever we can find.
