We have set-up a fund-raising page through Give-A-Little where you can make a donation online and 100% of the funds goes to Ronald McDonald House Auckland.  You get a tax deductible receipt.  If everyone gave up the cost of a coffee once a month ($5) - that would raise over $12,000 per year from Ulysses North Harbour for RMHA.
Let’s get behind it and set the benchmark as far as what this branch of the Ulysses Club can do for our community.
Givealittle Donations Update   
We have raised $1050.00 so far for Ronald McDonald House.  This is a simple and easy way to support the House monthly - every $5, $10, $20 or more goes a long way. Remember that 100% of your donation goes through to the House and anything above $5 is tax deductible.  You will get an emailed receipt within a few minutes of making your donation.  So whether you want to support it with a one-off donation or a regular amount - we appreciate your support.                                                                                                

If you are looking for a local venue hire, catering for 20 to 200 people then check out the North Shore Cosmopolitan Club.  They have a huge dance floor, well stocked bar, outdoor area & very friendly staff.  If you are a member then venue hire is free.

 In our increasingly homogenous world, the motorcycle still represents individuality and freedom. You can jump on your bike and, for a while, escape the manicured lawns of suburbia and all the worries that plague our complex, modern lives. All is put on the back burner as you twist that throttle, lean into the bend and live the moment with a glint in your eye.
In Living the Dream, George Lockyer talks to 50 Kiwi bikers from all walks of life, including MP Phil Goff and musician Mal Foster.
What really amazed George about the whole experience of writing Living the Dream was how one contact led to another, which led to another.  The whole project, which at first seemed quite daunting, soon began to snowball and take on a life and momentum all its own.
George uncovered some colourful personalities in the book with quotes such as:
 ‘We were a drinking club with a motorcycling racing problem, rather than the other way around.’
 ‘If I had to choose between it (the bike) and a beautiful woman, the bike would have probably won!’
But the thing that struck George the most about the riders interviewed for this book was the abiding passion for motorcycling and the camaraderie between motorcyclists.
Motorcycling is classless. The egalitarian nature of it is another of its many attractions. Anyone, rich or poor, can ride a bike and join the fraternity. And the older you get, the more appealing it seems to become. Why do we ride? For George, it’s quite simply about freedom.
George’s primary reason for getting into motorcycling was to travel on two wheels. To leave behind the monochrome conformity of a grey council estate in West London and escape to the wild blue yonder.
So this book is both a celebration and a tribute to all those Kiwis out there who choose to express their individuality on two wheels, and know too well the reason a dog sticks its head out of a car window!
George Lockyer is a regular monthly columnist for Kiwi Biker magazine. He lives in Christchurch.

Three men die in a horrific bike accident which collided with a car on Christmas eve. The three men go to the pearly gates St Peter said:

"You've got to pull something out of your pockets that has something to do with Christmas". 

The 1st man goes to St Peter and pulls out a bunch of keys out of his pockets and St Peter asks "What has that got to do with christmas?" 

The man shakes the keys and he explains "Well sir, they jingle". St Peter says "very good you can go in". 

The 2nd man goes to St Peter and pulls out a lighter out of his pocket. St Peter asks, "What on earth has a lighter got to do with christmas?". The 2nd man answers back and explains "Well when you light them its like candles". St Peter says "very good you can go in". 

The 3rd man goes up to him and he searches in his front pockets couldn't find anything, so he searches in his back pocket and finds a pair of ladies knickers. St Peter asks "What on earth has a pair of ladies knickers got to do with christmas? The 3rd man explains "These are Carols."

And so the Christmas season begins...........
A big city lawyer went duck hunting...

A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Wairarapa. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."
The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."
The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in New Zealand and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in North Wairarapa. We settle small disagreements like this with the 'Three Kick Rule.'"
The lawyer asked, "What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?"
The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up." The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney.
His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees!
His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth.
The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.
The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and remaining strength and very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old fart. Now it's my turn."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck."

A guy goes to the supermarket...

A guy goes to the supermarket and notices an attractive woman waving at him.
She says hello. He's rather taken a back because he can't place where he knows her. So he says, "Do you know me?"
To which she replies, "I think you're the father of one of my kids."
Now his mind travels back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife, and he says, "Oh, are you the stripper from my bachelor party that I did on the pool table with all my buddies watching while your partner whipped me with wet celery?"
The woman looks sternly into his eyes and says very calmly, "No, I'm your son's teacher.

A man walked into work on Monday with two black eyes. His boss asked what happened. 

The man said, "I was sitting behind a big woman at church. When we stood up to sing hymns, I noticed that her dress was caught in her crack, so I pulled it out. She turned around and punched me square in the eye." 
"Where did you get the other shiner?" the boss asked.

"Well," the man said, "I figured she didn't want it out, so I pushed it back in."


A tour bus driver drives with a bus full of seniors down a highway, when a little old lady taps him on his shoulder. She offers him a handful of almonds, which he gratefully munches up. 
After approx.15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of almonds. She repeats this gesture about eight times. 
At the ninth time he asks the little old lady why they don't eat the almonds themselves, whereupon she replies that it is not possible because of their old teeth, they are not able to chew them. "Why do you buy them then?" he asks puzzled. Whereupon the old lady Answers, "We just love the chocolate around them." 

David had been suffering from premature ejaculation for years and his wife coaxed him to finally go to a hospital for treatment. David got admitted and underwent an operation.

His wife rang up the hospital to find out if the operation was a success, and the doctor informed her, "I'm sorry but it's still touch and go!"



Two boys from the mountains, Leroy and Jasper have been promoted from privates to sergeants.

Not long after, they're out for a walk and Leroy says, "Hey, Jasper, there's the NCO Club. Let's you and me stop in."

"But we's privates," protests Jasper. "We's sergeants now," says Leroy, pulling him inside.

"Now, Jasper, I'm a-gonna sit down and have me a drink."

"But we's privates," says Jasper.

"You blind, boy?" asks Leroy, pointing at his stripes. "We's sergeants now."

So they have their drink, and pretty soon a hooker comes up to Leroy. "You're cute," she says, "and I'd like to date you, but I've got a bad case of gonorrhoea."

Leroy pulls his friend to the side and whispers, "Jasper, go look in the dictionary and see what gonorrhoea means. If it's okay, give me the okay sign."

So Jasper goes to look it up, comes back, and gives Leroy the big okay sign.

Three weeks later Leroy is laid up in the infirmary with a terrible case of gonorrhoea.

"Jasper," he says, "what fo' you give me the okay?"

"Well, Leroy, in the dictionary, it say gonorrhoea affects only the privates." He points to his stripes. "But we's sergeants now!"

A Push Please

A man is in bed with his wife when there is a knock at the door. He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's 3:30 in the morning. "I'm not getting out of bed at this time," he thinks, and rolls over. 
Then a louder knock follows. "Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife. So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is a man standing on the porch. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize the man was drunk. 
"Hi there," slurs the stranger. "Can you give me a push??" 
"No, get lost! It's half past three. I was in bed," says the man and he slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened and she says, "That wasn't very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the babysitter and you had to knock on that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if he'd told us to get lost?" 
"But the guy was drunk," says the husband. "It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help and it would be the Christian thing to help him." 
So the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs. He opens the front door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts, "Hey, do you still want a push?" And he hears a voice cry out, "Yeah, please." So, still being unable to see the stranger he shouts, "Where are you?"

And the drunk replies, "Over here, on the swing."

A woman meets a man in a bar.
They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together..
They get back to his place,
And as he shows her around his apartment.
She notices that one wall of his bedroom is
Completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears.
There are three shelves in the bedroom,
With hundreds and hundreds of cute,
Cuddly teddy bears carefully placed
In rows, covering the entire wall!
It was obvious that he had taken
Quite some time to lovingly arrange them
And she was immediately touched
By the amount of thought he had
Put into organizing the display.
There were small bears all along
The bottom shelf,
Medium-sized bears covering the
Length of the middle shelf,
And huge, enormous bears running
All the way along the top shelf.

She found it strange for an
Obviously masculine guy
To have such a large collection of
Teddy Bears,
They share a bottle of wine and
Continue talking and,
After awhile, she finds herself
'Oh my God! Maybe, this guy
Could be the one!
Maybe he could be the future
Father of my children?'
She turns to him and kisses him
Lightly on the lips
He responds warmly
They continue to kiss, the passion builds,
And he romantically lifts her in
His arms and carries her into his bedroom
Where they rip off each other's
Clothes and make hot, steamy love.

She is so overwhelmed that she
Responds with more passion,
More creativity, more heat than she
Has ever known.
After an intense, explosive night
Of raw passion with this sensitive guy,
They are lying there together in
The afterglow.
The woman rolls over, gently
Strokes his chest and asks coyly,

'Well, how was it?' 

The guy gently smiles at her, 

Strokes her cheek, 
Looks deeply into her eyes,
And says:
'Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.'
