What's the Heirloom Christmas Book about?

It is a BIG e-book with all the stories, that your great
grandmother recited or read to your grandmother, when she
was a kid. I want these stories preserved.

You may know what it is about, when somebody mentions
"bittersweet love like in 'The Gift Of The Magi',"
but with today's education, your kids or even their teachers,
probably don't know. So I collected these classics and put
them all together into one e-book.

This book of Christmas Stories is a cultural treasure, that should
be passed on to our descendants. Since it is in e-book format,
you can put it onto a CD for each kid, and fill the rest of the
CD with family pictures and other keepsakes,
making it a true heirloom.

I have produced a smaller version last year. This final
edition has more stories and illustrations, but I kept the
price down to the same $10.

The Heirloom Christmas Book also makes a nice
Christmas gift!

After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly
announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I
grow up." "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?" "Well,"
said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday  anyway, and I
figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen."

=========================================== After the christening of his baby brother in church, little Johnny sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That priest said he wanted us brought up in a good Christian home, but I want to stay with you guys instead!" ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michelle Baldwin of Riverside, California Severe Bimbo Malfunction December 14, 2006 - Riverside, California - AP A high school choir was told to stop singing Christmas carols by Michelle Baldwin, acting like a bigoted bimbo, and backed up by a city policeman, AFTER an ice skating show featuring Olympic medalist Sasha Cohen, faking concern the skater would be offended because Michelle Baldwin decided that Cohen must be Jewish, with a name like that. While that proves Baldwin to be a racist bigot, it does not make Cohen Jewish. Cohen, who is half-Christian and "celebrates everything" during the holidays, learned only through news reports that the choir had been cut off on her account, the 22-year-old skater's mother and manager said. "Sasha was stunned. We both thought the voices were just lovely, they were doing such a wonderful job," Galina Cohen told Reuters. "Christmas carols are part of celebrating the holiday season." Cohen's mother said the 2006 Olympic silver medalist and U.S. National Champion had taken part in Christmas tree lighting ceremonies at New York's Rockefeller Center and in California. -------------------------------- Well, Virginia, now you know what kind of person we call a bigot. And if you throw a snowball onto that bigot's snout, we would call that "Season's Greetings". But from me to you, it's "Merry Christmas!" And yes, it is quite OK to wish a "Merry Christmas" to people who are not Christians. They too get a paid statutory holiday on Christmas Day, and they too can, and usually do, take advantage of all the Christmas specials at Walmart and DELL and many other stores. If you have Jewish friends, please keep in mind that most of them would prefer that you wish them a Merry Christmas, rather than asking them for the exact dates of Chanukhah. And they are not going to get into a snit if you send them a Christmas card or gift. ===========================================

=========================================== A man walked into a dress shop and told the clerk he wanted to buy an evening gown for his wife for Christmas. "What size?" asked the clerk. The man shrugged blankly. Trying to help, the clerk inquired, "Well then, what are your wife's measurements?" The man thought for a moment. "Small, medium, and large, in that order...." =========================================== The old lady was aging more rapidly than he wanted. "Your gout is getting worse," said the doctor. "I recommend that you give up smoking, drinking and sex for a while." "WHAT!" said the woman, "just so's I can walk a little better? If it wasn't for smoking, drinking and sex I wouldn't get out of my rocker in the first place!" ============================================ Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! ================================== From the Tech Support Pits: From: Paul Re: Typo Dear Webby, Enjoy your newsletter daily.

But the computers _ outfitted with a joystick mouse, magnifying software and equipment allowing people to point and click with their eye movements, make Good Bytes one of just a handful nationwide specifically designed for disabled users. The cafe, which held its grand opening Friday, is a first for Goodwill Industries, the nonprofit best known for selling used clothing and furniture at its thrift stores nationwide. "We're the first, but we won't be the last," said Rebecca Helterbrand, marketing vice president for Goodwill Industries of San Antonio. Goodwill has long had job centers around San Antonio to help disabled residents find work, but surveys found that 70 percent of the area's disabled are unemployed and 60 percent don't have computer skills, she said. Because of the correlation between joblessness and lack of computer skills, Goodwill wanted to build something that would give more disabled people access to assistive technology. The nonprofit also wanted to do it in a setting as likely to be filled with nearby office workers and tourists as the disabled, Helterbrand said. The cafe, funded with a $125,000 grant from San Antonio based AT&T Inc., will be supported by food sales and will double as a location to train disabled food service workers, she said.

Daily tip from Thrifty Gift Tags Cut the top part of used greeting cards off, then cut this down to whatever size (and shape) you wish, depending on the design. (If it's an angel, just cut her out.) I also like to use hearts or other shapes that perhaps match the occasion for the gift you will use them on. Punch a hole in it, write your sentiments on the back, and attach to your package with a colored ribbon or raffia. By Patricia

Pete had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Pete went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. Pete slept well and in fact beat the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and drove cheerfully to work. "Boss", he said, "The pill actually worked!" "That's all fine" said the boss, "But where were you yesterday...?" ======================================== To find a real bugler for military funerals, browse to Buglers Pervert Alerts are now at ======================================== A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?" "Sixteen," the boy responded. His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly. "How do you know that?" "Easy," the little boy said. "All you have to do is add it up, like the Bishop said: 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."

Thanks to Chenli for this Chinese Christmas Link Chinese Christmas Thanks to Sandie for this old favorite Bonus Link: Dominic The Donkey ... minick.htm Thanks to Dianne for the Southern Christmas Link Southern Reindeer ... indeer.htm Interestingly enough, the Chinese censorship won't allow access to that page. It seems the concept of a reindeer with a John Deere tractor hat letting out a rebel yell is considered a bit too subversive and revolutionary.
