Dear Webby: AOL spam control tip 

Good Morning,   !
Monday,  December 11, 2006

Another late night, but since the sun rises late this time of
the year, it won't chase me from my desk this shift.
The Heirloom Christmas Book is finally finished, and
uploaded. I had to redo all the pictures, because the book
was 5 MB large. That could be a bit too large for some
of the computers out there. So now I trimmed it down to
just 2.6 MB. Still a monster with almost 200 pages, but
a more manageable file size.

I won't guarantee that you will like ALL the stories, but
I am pretty sure I got all the classics, that your great-grandma
read or recited to your grandma, when she was a kid.
Plus a couple of contempory ones.

Click on the
book cover
to get your copy

or click on Heirloom Christmas Book

By the way, I formatted the book so that you can print it
regular letter size, or with ClickBook in paperback size
printed front andback on a quarter the number of sheets
of paper.

Six year old Angie and her four year old brother Joel were
sitting together in church.  Joel giggled, sang, and talked out
loud.  Finally, his big sister had had enough.

"You're not supposed to talk out loud in church," she hissed
at Joel.

"Why?  Who's going to stop me?"  Joel shot back.

Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those
two big men standing by the door?"

Joel nodded.

"They're hushers."

=========================================== After the college boy delivered the pizza to Rob's's trailer house, Rob asked: "What is the usual tip?" "Well," replied the youth, "this is my first trip here, but the other guys say if I get a quarter out of you, I'll be doing great." "Is that so?" snorted Rob. "Well, just to show them how wrong they are, here's five dollars." "Thanks," replied the youth, "I'll put this in my school fund." "What are you studying?" asked Rob. The lad smiled and said: "Reverse psychology." ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Viscount Oliver's Legendary Four Tops band 'Sorry - we won't be there' A Four Tops tribute band missed a sell-out gig - when they set their satnav for Chelmsford instead of Cheltenham. Viscount Oliver's Legendary Four Tops, based on the Motown band whose biggest hit was 'I'll Be There', ended up 140 miles from the venue. Tour manager Alan Frazer said: "They were very upset to let down their fans because they put on such a great show. "Whoever tapped the place into the satnav got it wrong. They don't know British geography very well because they're American. "The guys have had a stressful tour playing 74 dates in Britain this year. The driver's been given a severe reprimand because of the error. It's cost me and the band a small fortune. "It was a nightmare. It wasn't as if they stopped the car and were sitting in the pub. They're all nonalcoholic vegetarians. ===========================================

I don't have any problem whatsoever, and I have AOL. Could the difference be that they do not have your e-mail address in their Address Book? AOL kept putting it into my Address Book whenever I received a newsletter. I kept deleting it because it was not one of my personal friends that I contact frequently. I was keeping my Address Book just for them. When I realized your newsletters were going into my Spam box, I finally realized. Now you are prominent in my Address Book along with my other friends, and I do believe you are a friend also. Your newsletter is the very best I have ever received. AmberRose Dear AmberRose You are 100% right. Nowadays AOL has become quite reliable, much better than for example Yahoo, and when the sender address is in the address book, the mail always gets through. Have FUN!

Barbara and Johann Meyer, from Wachtberg, initially received a ticket after a speed camera photographed them breaking the speed limit. But when they told authorities that they were on their way to hospital where Barbara gave birth to their first baby, police cancelled the fine. Instead, they sent them a toy police officer in uniform - holding a speed camera. Police also recommended the Meyers put the original speeding camera image into their son's first photo album.

Daily tip from Packing Peanuts Garland Do you have some styrofoam packaging peanuts lying around? String them together using a large needle and sturdy thread (or fishing line). You can even spruce them up a bit by painting the peanuts in Christmas colors. You can easily dye them by pouring food coloring or textile dye over them. The easiest way to string them up is with #19 magnet or motor wire. Most electrical rewind shops will gladly give you 20 - 50 foot leftover pieces of wire. Have FUN! DearWebby

Two men sitting side by side in a 747 plane started to talk. One explained he had never flown before. They left the airport in New York City headed for Los Angeles. They landed in Chicago, whereupon a little red truck pulled up and refueled the plane. They again landed to refuel at Denver. The little red truck pulled up to the plane and refueled it. As they were about to land at their destination the veteran flier pointed out to the novice what great time they had made. The novice said, " Yes we made good time, but that little red wagon wasn't doing bad either." ======================================== To find a real bugler for military funerals, browse to Buglers Pervert Alerts are now at ======================================== Martin, the nifty guy from Oklahoma, who sends so many neat pictures and jokes, has a Christmas Greeting for you: Martin ... 8G20061210
