The recent happenings here in Sri Lanka flashed Java back to a piece we posted nearly four years ago – https://javajones.wordpress.com/2011/03/23/the-karmic-force/ which, we like to think, was prophetic. As we postulated in our opening to that post: ….about the Cosmic Law of Cause and Effect AKA Karma. The adage that ‘each and every action has an equal and opposite reaction’ ...

2013 in review The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

My attention was drawn yesterday to this: https://javajones.wordpress.com/2008/04/22/is-this-any-way-to-run-a-country/ posted in 2008. It is interesting looking back as very little seems to have changed in four years, so the rut we were in has only established itself more solidly. The only major change (other than the cosmetic ) in the general scheme of things is that the war is over, and although ...

Got this in the mail this morning. It’s so hilarious that we had to share it – just as it was received. Enjoy! Can you imagine a nun sitting at her desk grading these papers, all the while trying to keep a straight face and maintain her composure? Pay special attention to the wording and spelling. If you know the ...

Some thoughts on the subject of ‘bisexuality’ arose from an exchange with a mate, which resulted from this  link l  sent him about what the article described as an “explosive new book”. In it were reports of numerous sexual encounters between Mick Jagger and a variety of partners that included David Bowie, Bette Midler and other well-known personalities. The link ...

It’s been a whole year since Java stimulated a post – mainly because we were having such a great time at Flowerbook that the desire to blog just wasn’t on. Then only this morning we get a link from Illuks that we felt just had to be put out there for those of us who are like-minded with regard to ...

WikiLeaks is probably the best thing that could have happened at the time it did – at least for those who value truth above bullshit. I mean like just about anyone who could get a glimpse of the mindset of George Bush knew that the whole ‘WMD’s in Iraq’ was a bunch of unadulterated crap – particularly if folk knew ...
