The Jar Of Life

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of small pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.” The professor then produced two cans of beer from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now”, said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things – your family, your children, your health, your friends, your favorite passions – things that, if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car.

The sand is everything else – the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house, and fix the rubbish. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand”.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that, no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of beers”.

Toonage Times

Remember those days before set top boxes? When a cartoon on Doordharshan or a TV show on Star TV was our only entertainment quota for the days. JJ now pays homage to all those TV & Cartoon Theme Songs that enlivens our spirit and makes us kids again. We have compiled a list of our favourite Cartoon & TV Theme songs. This list will have you yearning to watch those shows again, still in your school uniform, perched in front of your bulky colour tv, with a plate of your mom’s hot pakoras. Read along, song along and travel along with us on this journey down the television age. Get those pakoras ready!

  1. Batman 60s Theme Song: We think the lyrics go ‘Tenne Nenne Nenne Nenne, Tenne Nenne Nenne Nenne, BATMAAAAAAAAAN!”.
  2. Captain Planet: Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! Five powers combined, it’s our favourite childhood superhero.
  3. Superhuman Samurai: That tune is still stuck in all our heads.
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: If we remember correctly – Leonardo leads, Donatello does machines, Raphaelo’s cool but rude, Michaelangelo is a party dude. Radical!
  5. Power Rangers: Go Go Power Rangers.
  6. GI Joe: GI Joe is the codename for America’s daring, highly trained special mission force. Get your army pants on.
  7. Jem: The Hannah Montanna of the 90s. Fashion and fame. Jem is my name.
  8. Dexter’s Laboratory: There is gloom and doom where things go boom, in Dexters Laaaaaab. But there is joy and a glint in our eyes, whenever we hear this intro.
  9. Powerpuff Girls: This one is for the girls, but come one guys, admit it. You watched the show with your sisters too!
  10. The Real Adventures of Johhny Quest: This instrumental track spells adventure all the way.
  11. Swat Cats: Now that was one rocking show with one hellova rocking soundtrack!
  12. Scooby Doo: Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? We’ve got some work for you now. Is it just us, or is anyone else yearning for a Scooby snack?

Keep the kid in you alive. Keep Just Jockeying.

No we don’t mean we’ve all grown fat * author edges slowly away from evil glares of certain ‘horizontally endowed’ JJ crew member * What we mean is, we’ve got on aboard a lot of new members.

Just Jockeying – the truth behind

This, right now, is not just jockeying. This! This! Me writing this blog to explain for the benefit of those, who’ve just googled the term up to see what it really means! It’s clearly trying too hard. When you start doing that, it clearly fails the whole purpose. Apparently it’s part of my job!

Look, there’s no deep meaning to this stuff ok? It’s just…just…jockeying! Sooooooo…my last words to the people who’ve ignored my curtness and read on would be, don’t do stuffy stuff, you know, stuff that makes you feel stuffy and stuff. Stay cool, do it your way, and then, you’re pretty much JJing. I’m outta here! ta tah!

Btw, there are a few pages that you should visit if you haven’t visited them already. Here below are the links:
