Good Morning,   !

Rogues are preferable to imbeciles
because they sometimes take a rest.

The time to stop talking is when the other person
nods his head affirmatively but says nothing.

Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded
to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly
phoned his best friend, Finney.

"Did you see the paper?" asked Gallagher. "They say I died!!"

"Yes, I saw it!" replied Finney. "Where are ye callin' from?"

A man dies and finds himself standing third in line at the Pearly
Gates. The Angel explains that admission requirements are now
a bit more strict, as a few slum landlords and con artists have
managed to slip into Heaven without being detected.

He queries the first candidate: "What was your annual salary,
and what was your profession?

"I made $450,000 as an attorney," comes the reply.

"You may enter," says the Angel, "take elevator #2.".

Second candidate, same question.

"I made $95,000, I was a realtor." He is also permitted to
enter and was told to take elevator #4

Now it is the third man's turn.

"My annual income was $175."

"Cool!" replies the Angel, "take elevator #9. By the way,
what ezine did you publish?"

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Larenzo Dixon, 22 from Louisiana Jay Walk to jail A man wanted in Louisiana for investigation of murder and murder for hire was taken into custody after he was stopped for jaywalking at a trolley station, sheriff's officials said Saturday. San Diego County sheriff's deputies were enforcing a "no tolerance" policy at the Lemon Grove Trolley station on Wednesday, authorities said, when they saw Larenzo Dixon, 22, cross the street illegally. Deputy David Perrapato became suspicious after he said Dixon gave him one name then signed another on his jaywalking citation. After taking him into custody for using a false name, authorities said they discovered there were outstanding warrants for his arrest on murder and murder for hire charges. Sheriff's Sgt. Paul Robbins said Saturday that Dixon would be returned to Louisiana to face the charges. He also praised Perrapato. "Because of his enforcement actions, one more potentially violent predator was taken off the street," Robbins said. ===========================================

He took his friend out for a drive, and he chose the route carefully in order to impress on him the possibilities of the brokerage business. "Look at that yacht," he said as they drove slowly past a marina. "That 96' beauty belongs to the senior partner at Merrill Lynch. That one over there 104' is owned by the head of Goldman, Sachs. And look at that huge 210' yacht out there. That's the pride and joy of the top seller at Prudential-Bache." His friend Morris was silent. Goodman turned to look at him and saw a pained look on his face. "What's the matter?" Goodman asked. "I was just wondering," Morris said. "why aren't there any customers' yachts?" ===========================================

Can you tell me the benifits of increasing virtual memory? What is your recommendation for the size it should be? Thank you very much, Diana Dear Diana Windows often needs more memory than is available in your RAM chips. Then it declares a part of the hard drive as virtual (fake) memory and parks older stuff from the RAM there, until it is needed again. Your computer will work the best if you set your virtual memory to about four times the amount of RAM you have installed. Have FUN! Dear Webby Related to that is a letter from Bill: Webby, Why would one not just allow Windows XP to automatically adjust the size of the virtual memory rather than set it manually? Thanks, Bill Dear Bill Bill If you do, Windows just keeps hogging more and more space to use for virtual memory. Beyond a certain point that gets very inefficient and slows things down. It's like tools on the workbench. It's handy to have SOME tools within reach, but when the pile of tools on the bench cramps your work space and it takes longer to dig tools out from the pile than it would to get them from their proper drawer, then it's time to set some limits.

Emily was riding in the back seat of the family car Tuesday when her mother, Dayna Lineberger, started feeling lightheaded. Ulcerative colitis had caused Lineberger to feel faint before, so she decided to get food at a nearby restaurant. "Then it just hit me," said Lineberger, 40. "The last thing I remember is screaming to her, `Tell me where to turn,' because I couldn't see. " While heading into the restaurant parking lot, Lineberger's head rolled back and she passed out, Emily said. "I just screamed like crazy," Emily said. She leaned forward and grabbed the wheel. Her mother's foot was still on the gas pedal, but Emily steered to avoid a car before their car hit a telephone pole and stopped unharmed. Doctors later said Lineberger was dehydrated from the colitis. "It was just her instinct and God riding on her shoulders," Lineberger said.

======================================== A nervous young minister, new to the church, told the flock, "For my text today, I will take the words, 'And they fed five men with five thousand loaves of bread and two thousand fishes.'" A member of the flock snicked at the preacher's snafu, raised his hand and said, "That's not much of a trick. I could do that." The minister didn't respond. However, the next Sunday he decided to repeat the text. This time he did it properly, "And they fed five thousand men with five loaves of bread and two fishes." Smiling, the minister said to the noisy man, "Could you do that, Mr. Perkins?" The member of the flock said, "I sure could." "How would you do it?" "With all the food I had left over from last Sunday!" ========================================
