Happiness doesn't depend upon who you are or what you have;
it depends solely on what you think.
--- Dale Carnegie


You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be
yelling at the same kids.
-- Derrick, age 8

Both don't want any more kids.
-- Lori, age 8

When they're rich.
-- Pam, age 7

It's better for girls to be single but not for boys.
Boys need someone to clean up after them.
-- Anita, age 9

There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
-- Kelvin, age 8

Style and fashion intrude into all walks of our lives. Two fellows
who had been rivals all their lives followed different career
paths. One eventually became an Admiral in the Navy, the
other went into the Catholic Church and became a Bishop.

As fate would have it, they happened to meet at the Airport.
The Bishop spied the Admiral first and said loudly,
"Oh Porter, from what gate is the flight to Dallas leaving?"
The Admiral approached, bowed, and said
"Gate 7 Madame, but should you be traveling in your condition ?"

So we left all our trash paper on our desks every night. In a week, the boss had an office full of trash, nobody filled out a retrieval form, and we never heard about the policy again. =========================================== 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: Stormy O Re: Computer recommendation Dear Webby I'm giving my Toshiba lap top to my son. What would 'you' recommend for someone who loves to download everything, save up "stuff' and writes? Any help here would be appreciated! The computer store here says they can build one for me, keeping in mind what I want it for. They start at about $1,1000. I am on a diet concerning income, so have to be really sure of what I buy. Thanks, have a super day, stormy O' Dear Stormy O I have heard about the computer stores in your town. Forget them. Get yourself the cheapest DELL with Windows XP for $379 ... C521SX_R_E and increase the RAM to 1 GB. That costs $50 more. And that's it! Anything else is just for bragging on the school bus, but won't make any difference, that you would notice with what you use the machine for. If you have a budget to kill, add a nice, fashionable flat panel monitor: 17 inch E177FP Analog Flat Panel [add $150] Have FUN!

It seems the two crooks never learned two things, they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun. Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buck shot from the 11 year olds' knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. The victim of that robbery, 50 year old David Burien, was not as lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest. The 11 year-old girl staved off a robbery and potential rape because her parents taught her how to use a gun. Her parents didn't just didn't a gun in the house and not educate her on the power that a firearm provides. They taught her how to use it properly.

Daily tip from Twist Ties and Rubber Bands Twist ties work well for wrapping up power tool cords and keeping wires together. Rubber bands also have a variety of uses and are good to keep handy. Take an old bike inner tube and cut it into rings to make some heavy duty rubber bands.

A chief and an admiral were sitting in the barber shop. They were both just getting finished with their shaves--the barbers were reaching for some aftershave to slap on their faces. The admiral shouted, "Hey, don't put that stuff on me! My wife will think I've been in a whorehouse!" The chief turned to his barber and said, "Go ahead and put it on. My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like." =============================================

======================================== Thanks to Morris for this story: One day, while driving with my then 5 year old daughter Melanie, I beeped the horn by mistake. She turned and looked at me as if she was demanding an explanation. I said, "I did that by accident..." She replied, "I know that....'cause you didn't say 'A********!' after beeping!" ========================================
