Flying Paramedics

I suggest shutting the shades on your windows, even on high floors, because the world’s first jet suit-wearing paramedic could be flying by.

England is experimenting with putting first responders in a 1050 brake horsepower jet suit for speedy rescues. Watch the video, it is amazing.

Richard Browning, founder of Gravity Industries, makers of the jet suit, demonstrated how humans will finally be able to fly. The video shows how you can fly from a valley to a very high elevation like the UNESCO-protected heritage site. The Lake District is known for some of England’s highest peaks.

Browning believes that his new invention will help save lives all over the world. “First responders will be able to reach some patients much quicker than ever before.”

The jet suit was built by using 3D printed parts, specialist electronics and five jet engines. Anyone interested in taking a ride can soar at speeds of 32 miles per hour and ascend to altitudes of 12,000 feet.”

My Friend Ray Shared This Letter He Sent To Joe Biden

He also sent the message below to 30 politically connected people including an Obama ambassador and fundraiser, Henry Louis Gates, Jr, Deval Patrick & his campaign managers, Madeleine Albright’s brother, people from The New Yorker & the NYT, Michael Dukakis, and others.

Good afternoon,

I have two degrees from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Donald Trump was a year behind me at Penn. Trump parachuted into Penn from Fordham for his junior and senior years. Beginning in 2016, I joined a group of Penn classmates to investigate whether Trump’s father bribed his way into Penn and paid for others to write his papers and take his tests.

Since Trump, the fake stable genius, is attacking Joe Biden’s education credentials, my classmates and I would like to send the retort below to the Biden Campaign Team for use when under fire

If there are any more “debates,” Trump will continue to denigrate Biden’s education — implying that Trump is better educated and smarter (because of Wharton)

Joe should have a packaged retort:

I have heard from your Penn classmates that your daddy bribed your way into Penn as a junior when you were about to flunk out of FordhamYour classmates have no memory of you being on the Penn campus and because of your 6th grade vocabulary, lack of grammar, and lack of intellectual curiosity, they assume that you didn’t attend class and paid someone to write your papers and take your tests.

By pathetically trying to denigrate my college experience because I couldn’t afford an Ivy League education, you are also denigrating all of the brilliant talented people who have attended state universities and community colleges because those are the best schools their hardworking families could afford.At least they weren’t gullible enough to attend Trump University

Thank you,

We Asked A Prominent NY Doctor If Indoor Dining Was Safe And We Ended Up With A Possible Treatment For Covid-19

Dr Bruce Yaffe

Steve Greenberg

Lois Whitman-Hess

Dr. Bruce Yaffe wants to know why a certain medicine he is well acquainted with is not being used as a treatment for Covid-19. He has no real proof that it works for everyone, but the few very sick patients he prescribed it to got significantly better within 24 hours. They all are well today. Dr. Yaffe is not saying this is the cure all, but he does want the research labs to do deep investigation on the drug.

What is it? You will just have to listen to the “Lying on the Beach On Camera” with Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess.

Dr. Yaffe is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. His practice has been a fixture for patients on the Upper East Side for more than two decades.

He is now a concierge doctor affiliated with Lenox Hill Hospital and NYU Langone Medical Center. He has been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor® for over 10 years.

Much To Aspire To


Thank you Leslie Mark Alter for this wonderful video.

STAY ALERT! They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…….

Note from Lois…..I am having trouble with the “new and improved” WordPress blog template. I can’t size photos and type. I am even having trouble with paragraph spacing. I am waiting for WordPress support to get back to me.

Meanwhile, here are some funnies from my friend Michael Sommer.



My husband and I went through the McDonald’s driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.
She said, ‘you gave me too much money.’
I said, ‘Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.’
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said ‘We’re sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.’
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at MacD’s.


We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a ‘large’ enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

He shook his head and said, ‘You need a 1/4 horsepower.’
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, ‘NOOO, it’s not. Four is larger than two.’

We haven’t used that repairman since…


I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.The reason: ‘Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don’t think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.’


My daughter went to a Mexican fast food and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for ‘minimal lettuce.’
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.


I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
‘Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?’
To which I replied, ‘If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?’
He smiled knowingly and nodded, ‘That’s why we ask.’


The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it’s safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an ‘intellectually challenged’ co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, ‘what on earth are blind people doing driving?!’
She is a government employee…..


When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a
service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
‘Hey,’ I announced to the technician, ‘its open!’
His reply, ‘I know. I already did that side.’

STAY ALERT! They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…….
