If I Ruled The World...

...my TV remote would work on the dog(s) next door when they bark and bark and bark for hours.

If I ruled the world I'd be assassinated within a week

If I ruled the world, nobody would ever have to go to a nursing home. They would get to stay in their own home and have the care they deserve.

BTW, this is a great idea for a thread CG.

Thanks jh! The idea isn't originally mine. I got the idea from one of my favorite Christine Lavin songs: If I Ruled the World She has lots of great ideas!

And "tired and cranky" can lead to some of the best wishes! Hope next week is better for you.

j, a week?

pf, deserve is an interesting concept.

if i ruled the world, we'd all understand how each other thinks and feels at all times.

isn't that sort of the definition of heaven?

if reality is a collection of asynchronous personal perspectives, then heaven is mashing all of them together so everyone understands each other, and therefore can be no discord. just harmony if the greatest sort.

The first thing that came to my mind if I ruled the world is that I would rid the earth of green peppers. Don't ask me why I chose that over so much more important stuff but that's what I'm going to go with.

I am so sorry you had a tough week at work PF.

:
I don't know what I would do if I ruled the world, but as far as dogs go, I know my neighbors called police on my dog, and he never barked. There are special companies that train dogs not to bark, maybe your neighbors would be willing to train the dogs.
