They must be driven into practice with courageous patience.

wrapping up with dipping their own candles. Next,
everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types
of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much
change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and
pay with a five dollar bill. On the way home, a discussion
develops over the history of money and also Abraham
Lincoln, as his picture is on the five dollar bill.  Finally,
after building a homemade ladder out of branches
dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed.
And there is light.

Thanks to Ross for this story:
A man walked into a bar in Louisville, Kentucky and ordered
a drink.  While he was sitting at the bar watching TV, one of
Hillary's political ads came on. After it went off, he stood up
and announced to everyone, "Hillary is a horse's ass!"

The bartender reached under the bar and brought out an oak
club about 18 inches long and hit the man square across the
head, knocking him off his stool and onto the floor.

After a minute or two, the man got up, straightened himself
up and said to the bartender, "I'm sorry. I didn't know this
was Hillary country."
"It's not!" replied the bartender.
"This is horse country".

Calum McFadyen, 35, tied the gold ring to the string of four-year-old Henry's balloon to see if he could weigh it down. But as he watched television in the front room he heard Henry open the front door and wave goodbye to the Thomas the Tank Engine balloon as it floated off with the ring still attached. Mr McFadyen, 35, a housing support officer, said: "The ring has not been off my hand in years - I was just messing about with the kids. I guess it could be in France now! "My wife wasn't too impressed and told me it was a stupid thing to do. I tend to agree! "I've been getting a ribbing from the people at work but I deserve it. Now I just want the ring back." Wife Vicky, 36, said: "This could only happen to my husband, he's one of those people!" ===========================================

=========================================== Ira and Esther Goldberg had a large family of seven healthy children. They moved to America from Europe and were having a difficult time finding an apartment to live in. Many apartments were large enough, but the landlords objected to such a large family. After several days of unsuccessful searching, Ira asked Esther to take the four younger children to visit the cemetery, while he took the older three to find an apartment. After they had looked most of the morning, they found a place that was just right. The landlord asked the usual question: "How many children do you have?" Ira answered with a deep sigh, "Seven...but four are with their dear mother in the cemetery." He got the apartment! ============================================ 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: John Re: Humor Letter delivery times Dear Webby, There are three folks at this address using the same computer and of course the same internet service.

But the industrious creatures have not been seen in the flesh here for as many as 200 years until this week. Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River on Wednesday. Its twig-and-mud lodge had been spotted earlier on the river bank, but the tape confirmed the presence of the animal itself. "It had to happen because beaver populations are expanding, and their habitats are shrinking," said Dietland Muller-Schwarze, a beaver expert at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. "We're probably going to see more of them in the future." Beavers gnawed out a prominent place in the city's early days as a European settlement, attracting fur traders to a nascent Manhattan. The animal appears in the city seal to symbolize a Dutch trading company that factored in the city's colonial beginnings, according to the city's Web site. But amid heavy trapping, beavers disappeared from the city in the early 1800s, according to the city Parks & Recreation Department. The beaver that has made its way to the Bronx appears to be a male, several feet (a meter) long and two or three years old, said Patrick Thomas, the mammals curator at the nearby Bronx Zoo. Biologists have nicknamed the animal "Jose," as a tribute to U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano's work to revive the river.

Daily tip from Stubborn Drawers and Doors When dirt and dust builds up on drawer and sliding door runners, they can become squeaky and tough to open and shut. To fix this, rub a bar of soap or a piece of paraffin wax on the runners. This will act as lubrication and allow the runners to slide smoothly. If the runners or sliders are teflon or nylon, clean them with a tough kitchen sponge and clean, hot dishwater. They work best when perfectly clean. If necessary, use windex to remove old wax or soap. Wax or soap should only be used on bare wooden runners. Have FUN! Dear Webby

Thanks to the folks from Erie for this story: A lady went into a bar in Waco and saw a cowboy with his feet propped up on a table. He had the biggest boots she'd ever seen. The woman asked the cowboy if it's true what they say about men with big feet. The cowboy grinned and said, "Shore is, little lady. Why don't you come on out to the bunkhouse and let me prove it to you." The woman wanted to find out for herself, so she spent the night with him. The next morning she handed him a $100 bill. Blushing, he said, "Well, thank ye ma'am. Ah'm real flattered. Ain't nobody ever paid me fer mah services before." She said, "Don't be flattered... take the money and buy yourself some boots that fit." __________________________________________

======================================== An Irishman is walking along the beach one day, and he sees a bottle laying in the sand. He picks it up and starts to brush it off, and out pops a genie. The genie says, "Since you have freed me from the bottle, I will grant you three wishes." The Irishman thinks for a moment and says, "I'm feeling a might thirsty, I think I'll be wishing for a pint of stout." POOF! There is a pint of stout in his hand. He drinks it down, and starts to throw the bottle, when the genie says, "I'd look at that bottle again before I threw it if I were you." So he looks at the bottle, and it is magically filling back up with stout. The genie told him, "That is a magic bottle, and it will always fill back up after you finish it." The genie then asked, "What other two wishes can I grant for you?" The Irishman looks at the bottle in his hand and says, "I'll be taking two more of these." ========================================
