it is also full of the overcoming of it.

the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.

Thanks to martin for this story:
A Hebrew teacher stood in front of his class and said,
"The Jewish people have observed their 5,759th year as a
people. Consider that the Chinese, for example, have only
observed their 4,692nd year as a people.
Now what does it mean to you?"

After a moment of silence, a chubby student raised his hand.
"Yes, David," the teacher said. "What does it mean?"

"Well," David replied "It means that the Jews had to go
without Chinese food for 1,067 years."

"Look at ME!" boasted the fit old man to a group of young
people. "Every morning I do fifty push-ups, fifty sit-ups
and walk two miles. I'm fit as a fiddle! And you want to
know why? I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't stay up
late, and I don't chase after women!"

He smiled at them, teeth white, eyes glittering, "And
tomorrow, I'm going to celebrate my 95th birthday!"

"Oh, really?" drawled one of the young onlookers,
"How, with an extra dry bran muffin?"

Last Swim

Kansas City, Kansas - AP
A burglary suspect decided to shed his clothes and go for
a swim in an effort to flee from authorities.

Authorities said the whole thing started when they were
called to a home for a report of an armed home invasion
in progress. When they arrived, two men fled, fired shots
at the officers and then eventually ended up near the
Kansas River.

It was there that one man was taken into custody while
trying to scale a fence. The other suspect ran into the
river, took off his clothes and tried swimming away from

The suspect swam for 45 minutes as officers looked on from
the shore. Then rescuers in a fire department boat paddled
out to try and apprehend him, but he didn't want to cooperate.

Finally, the man was taken into custody after authorities
chased him down in the water. The two men were in custody
awaiting charges.

Re: DisKeeper

Dear Webby,
Bonnie seemed concerned about diskeeper. I also have
diskeeper 9, best item money can by for the computer!
I myself just go in a couple times a week and run it
manually. Love to watch it in action. I put it on the
performance header and watch the red disappear!
They have come out with the 10 series, but my nine works
just fine and fast and i'm more than happy!

   I have learned so much from your computer tips.
Thank you!
I have saved 90% of the humor letters over the last couple
of years. I say this because if you ever want to put together
an online or "blast from the past" listing all your tips, which
would go over well with us trying to learn how this machine
works, I will put it to disk and send to you.
Keep up the good work! and thank you for the laughs!

Dear Chuck
I agree with you 100% that DisKeeper is undisputably the
best hard drive maintenance program, and as essential
to a computer as a helmet is for motorcycle racing. Sure,
some people have nothing up there worth protecting, but
for those of us who do, DisKeeper is a real bargain. That
is why I have featured it in the side menu for so many years.

Regarding old tech tips, as soon as we get the new, metric
100 hour days, I definitely want to put them all into one
condensed collection.

In the meantime I started a Blog at
to make it easy to look up previous Humor Letters. Until I
figure out how to slide older ones behind the new ones,
I will just add the new ones every day.

Have FUN!

Rosy and Nina were best of friends and did everything to-
gether. Rosy announced that she was going to start a diet
to lose some pounds.

"Good," Nina exclaimed. "I'm ready to start a diet too. We
can be diet buddies and help each other out. When I feel
the urge to drive out and get a burger and fries, I'll call
you first."

"Great," Rosy replied. "Let's go to Burger King!"

Thanks to Mike for this story:
I took my 4 year old son, Josh, out to McDonald's for dinner
one evening for a "guy night".

As we were eating our hamburgers, Josh asked "Daddy, what
are these little things on the hamburger buns?"

I responded that they were tiny seeds and were ok to eat.

He was quiet for a couple of minutes and I could tell he
was in deep thought.

Finally, Josh looked up and said, "Dad, if we go home and
plant these hamburger seeds in our backyard, we will have
enough hamburgers to last forever."


Deeli's Kudos
Newport Beach, California - AP
A woman saved her 13-year-old son's life after following a
hunch that the 4-foot deep trench he was digging, collapsed
on him, officials said.

Dylan Scott was recovering at home Monday from the scrapes
and bruises he sustained when the sand fell in on him.

''It's creepy,'' he said. ''I just remember something really
heavy fell on me.''

Wendy Scott, 41, said she didn't see Dylan when she
retuned to the beach after briefly joining her 10-year old
in the water Sunday.

Other beach visitors told her Dylan had gone swimming,
but she sensed he was buried in the sand, she said.

Onlookers began helping her dig when she clawed through
the sand and touched Dylan's head, she said.

The boy wasn't breathing and had turned blue by the time
rescuers arrived, she said. He was revived at a hospital.

Daily tip from
Ziploc Bags for Outfits 
I have two preschool daughters. When we travel, I pack
outfits in gallon sized ziploc bags. I include top, shorts,
underwear and socks. That way, they can take a pack and
dress themselves and I don't have to sort through all of
the clothes each day. This really helps since they wear
similar sizes and it's hard to keep them separated. - Ann

A friend hosted a dinner party for people from work and
everyone was encouraged to bring their children.  All during
the sit-down dinner, one co-worker's three-year-old girl
stared at the man sitting across from her.  The girl could
hardly eat her food from staring.

The man checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted
his hair in place, but nothing stopped her from staring at
him.  He tried his best to just ignore her, but finally it
was too much for him. He asked her,
"Why are you staring at me?"

Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior and the
table went quiet for her response.  The little girl said,
"I'm just waiting to see how you drink like a fish."

I am not endorsing those non-discrimination laws. Military
hiring practises should not be dictated by the ACLU.
However, I applaud ANY ACTION to shield the bereaved
families of miners and war heroes, - who had absolutely
nothing to do with the Government giving in to the ACLU -,
from those despicable Westboro perverts.

An attorney telephoned the governor just after midnight,
insisting that he talk to him regarding a matter of utmost
urgency.  An aide eventually agreed to wake up the governor.
The governor grumbled as he answered the phone and said,
"So, what is it?"

"Judge Quincy has just died," the attorney told him,
"and I want to take his place."

The governor said, "Well, that's okay with me,
if it's okay with the undertaker."
