If your only goal is to become rich, you will never achieve it.
 John D. Rockefeller


A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they
were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary
to be quiet in church?"

Little Johnny replied, "Because people are sleeping."

Upon returning to their car from a shopping tour, one of
the young ladies  realized that she had forgotten to stop
at the pharmacy for her birth control pills.

She rushed into the nearest pharmacy and gave her
prescription to the pharmacist.
"Please fill this immediately," she said. "I've got people
waiting in my car!"

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a dopey mother in Bromley, Kent, England Here, you watch her for a while! March 22, 2007 - Bromley, Kent, UK - Ananova A mum has been arrested after dumping her baby with a homeless person while she went shopping. The woman put the homeless man in charge of the eight week old girl after spotting him outside a Sainsbury's store and then wandered off with her boyfriend, reports the Daily Mirror. After waiting outside the supermarket for more than an hour, the concerned down-and-out handed the child to shocked store staff - who called police. The pair were arrested at the scene. As officers were interviewing staff, the 35-year-old woman and her 26-year-old partner finally returned looking for the baby. After examining the baby in the office of the supermarket in Bromley, Kent, ambulance staff took the child to hospital for a check-up before putting her in the care of social services. The mum's boyfriend was later released without charge. ===========================================

Johnny: "I haven't found the right woman yet." George: "So what are you looking for?" Johnny: "Oh she's got to be real pretty, - a good cook and house-keeper, and she's got to know how to handle money, a really nice and pleasant personality is a must - and money, she's got to have money...and a home, a nice big house, is what she has to have." George: "A woman like that would be crazy to marry YOU." Johnny: "Oh, it's okay if she is crazy." ===========================================

=========================================== An elderly woman went into the doctor's office. When the doctor asked why she was there, she replied, "I'd like to have some birth control pills." Taken aback, the doctor thought for a minute and then said, "Excuse me, Mrs. Smith, but you're 75 years old. What possible use could you have for birth control pills?" The woman responded, "They help me sleep better." The doctor thought some more and continued, "How in the world do birth control pills help you to sleep?" The woman said, "I put them in my granddaughter's orange juice and I sleep a lot better at night." ============================================ 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: Eleanor Re: Tripod Dear Webby, You mentioned last year that you will continue searching for a perfect tripod at an affordable price. I did too, but all I managed is wasting money on garbage. Did you have better results? Eleanor Dear Eleanor Yes, I got a lot closer to the perfect tripod. It's a Velbon CX440. I got mine from Fairview Photo. If you are not in North America, you can check at for a dealer in your area. You should be able to get one for $30 - $50. It has smooth action and no slop. The pan head (for turning) is not threaded, it has a wide clamp riding on a smooth shaft. The clamp is springloaded and when panning, it feels like it had a fluid damper in it. While that is a huge bonus for shooting movies, personally I prefer zero resistance rotation for fast action shots. But that is definitely easy to get used to, since the rest of the tripod is so smooth and solid. Have FUN!

Five years ago, he got a call from a woman on Grand Cayman Island saying she'd found the bottle. Last week, Webb made the same type of call, this time to an Arkansas school where children sent a balloon aloft with a note attached. Webb, 34, is a golf course superintendent in Tarboro and found the balloon March 12 as he rode around the course checking on its condition. The yellow balloon had a tag showing it was set free by Dana Johnson's class at Wynne Primary School Kindergarten in Wynne, Ark. Webb's fiance, Susan Watson, 29, called Johnson's classroom. Johnson said the class had released balloons for several years but no one had ever called back. The balloon was released Jan. 31 as students celebrated the 100th day of the school year. ''It was right cool to call the kids,'' said Webb. ''It is amazing the balloon made the trip.''

Daily tip from Aromatherapy For The Home To make your whole house smell wonderful (and warm), put a few whole cloves in a water kettle on the wood stove or in a small potpourri pot. Add more water every few days. This is much better and cheaper than expensive oils and the humidity will make the house feel warmer too. By Connie

A teacher was taking her first golf lesson. "Is the word spelled p-u-t or p-u-t-t?" she asked the instructor. "P-u-t-t is correct," he replied. "Put means to place a thing where you want it. Putt means a vain attempt to do the same thing. =============================================

======================================== Thanks to Ellen for this story: Early one morning, my husband, who works in a funeral home, woke me, complaining of severe abdominal pains. We rushed to the emergency room, where tests were performed to determine the source of the pain. My husband decided not to have me call in sick for him until we knew what was wrong. When the results came back, the nurse informed us that, true to our suspicions, he was suffering from a kidney stone. I turned to my husband and asked, "Would you like me to call the funeral home now?" With a scornful look, the nurse turned to me and snapped, "Honey, he's not THAT sick!" ======================================== ======================================== , if you like the Dear Webby Daily Humor Letter, please vote for it at the Ezine Finder: Thanks for your votes!
