THURSDAY THIRTEEN


THIRTEEN!

Thirteen items? Here we go........
*
THIRTEEN THINGS I'D LIKE TO KNOW!
*
Has the universe got an end?
Are ring-piercings just a trend?
Will there be bush-fires this year?
What is the ringing in my ear?
Why don't I like wine and others do?
Why, when sad, do we say we're 'blue'?
Who will win our next election?
Why do I always lose my direction?
How did the universe begin?
I'm competing, will I win?
Are there people in outer space?
What's this pimple on my face?
What shall I have for lunch today?
*
 I like this meme!
I think I'll stay!

Holland loses the World Soccer Cup.
 
TANTALISING TRIVIA!
 
Why did it matter? It's just a game!
Just kicking a ball about!
Why all this passion and hype and shame?
Why all the pain and doubt?
I think back to gladiator days
(Not that I'm that old)
When the crowds went wild at the spectacle
Of big men, brave and bold,
Fighting each other to the death,
Cheering them loud and long,
Watching them take a final breath
For all they were big and strong.
We haven't progressed, it seems to me, 
From those ancient days of yore.
The only advantage I can see
Is
It's better than going to war!

When you think of the ball games of yore when the victors beheaded their enemies and kicked their heads around on the playing field, it does make you wonder if we have progressed very far.

I love your thirteen questions Brenda! I want to know what the ringing in the ear thing is too! I've been to two doctors and all they told me was that I needed to relax!?! Love Di ♥

I was always told that ringing in the ears is Tinitis! It
comes and goes. I am not at all sure that it is the warning signs of deafness, necessarily.

13 great questions and I actually took time to think on each one !!!, I love that pic of the dice

Re: tinnitus. I have had tinnitus for 40 years and it never goes away in my case,although it can for others. Many things can cause it. High blood pressure for one. I am now deaf and my hearing loss (and tinnitus) was caused by Meniere's Syndrome.
