Good Morning,   !

Any event, once it has occurred,
can be made to appear inevitable by a competent historian.

We are what we pretend to be,
so we must be careful what we pretend to be.

Re Sue's flowers, the following guesses came in:
Libby: Hydrangea
Kim: Wild Hydrangea
Chris: They are called Cashmere Bouquet;  cleredendron

I looked that one up and it does seem a very close match.

Thanks to Sandie for bringing back this classic:

Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the U. S.
involvement in Iraq, here's a sobering statistic:
There has been a monthly average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq
theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of
2,112 deaths. That gives a violent death rate of 60 per 100,000
soldiers. The violent death rate in Washington D. C. is 80.6 per
100,000 persons for the same period. That means that you are
about 25% more likely to be shot or knifed and killed in the U. S.
Capital than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: The U. S. should pull out of Washington.

Some nitpickers will probably want to snivel about those
stats being a few months out of date. Don't waste my time
with that. The point is in the punch line, not in how current
those numbers are.

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jochen and Maria Ranstett, 56, from Weiden, Germany Embarrassing Tie-Up May 23, 2007 - Weiden, Germany - Ananova A German couple had to call out the fire brigade after tying each other up in chains - and then losing the key to the padlock. Jochen Ranstett, 56 and his wife Maria, from the town of Weiden, dressed up in leathers and chained each other to their beds, but lost the key during the romp. After hours of trying to free themselves they finally gave up and called for help on Jochen's mobile phone. He said: "It was so embarrassing. We just wanted to try something a bit different and we ended up with this. "I even had to be taken to hospital because my wrists had swollen so much from trying to get out of the handcuffs." ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Phil for this story: My two-year-old daughter, Paige, was with her mother while her older sister was being examined by a dentist. Paige kept herself busy playing with toys in the waiting room until she noticed that her mom was resting, her eyes closed. With about six other patients waiting, Paige marched up to her mother, looked her straight in the face and shook her shoulder. "Mommy," she yelled, "wake up! This is not church!" My wife, Lani, woke from her doze to the sound of the other patients laughing hysterically. =========================================== 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: CJW Re: Temp File dear webby. question is there anyway to block this folder %temp%. type it run. see the email below about the question posed to me. thanks helmut! cjw MICROSOFT HAS A SECRET TEMP FOLDER THAT TAKES QUITE A BIT OF SPACE. TO DELETE THIS FOLDER GO TO START, RUN, AND TYPE IN %TEMP%. THEN OPEN, SELECT ALL AND DELETE. YOU 'LL GET A MESSAGE CANT THIS FILE, CLICK OK AND MOVE TO THE NEXT ONES. MAKE SURE ALL OPEN WINDOWS ARE CLOSED. WHEN I STARTED HAD 1700 ITEMS, FINISHED WITH THREE. DO THIS EVERY SO OFTEN. MARY REAL SIMPLE!! LOL CJW Dear Chuck What kind of Caps-Locker BS is that? The temp folder is not secret, never has been secret, and never will be secret. It is at C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Local Settings\Temp There are more temp files in the same area. So what? You can use CrapCleaner to weed them out, but your browser will be slower, when it has to download stuff instead of re-using it. Honestly, it's not a sinister conspiracy to catch "Agent CapsLock". However, just because you are paranoid, that does not mean they are not out to get you! Have FUN!

Margarethe Willemsen, 80, from Hanover, had stashed her life savings of 57,000 in an old vacuum cleaner bag. But a new cleaning lady she had employed found the bag in a cupboard and threw it out, thinking it was rubbish. Willemsen managed to get the cash back though after she called the local rubbish collection service - which sent a team to sift through 45 tons of rubbish at a tip to find the bag. She said: "I thought it would be the perfect place to hide my cash but I was obviously wrong."

Daily tip from Bringing Batteries on Camping Trips Before packing electronic devices or flashlights, remove the batteries before and store them in a ziplock bag. That way if something accidentally gets flipped on, you won't run down your batteries. That will also avoid embarrassing incidents in airport security, like my nephew experienced, when his razor got turned on by baggage handlers tossing his luggage around.

Knowing that the minister was very fond of cherry brandy, one of the church elders offered to present him with a bottle on one consideration - that the pastor acknowledge receipt of the gift in the church paper. "Gladly," responded the good man. When the church magazine came out a few days later, the elder turned at once to the "appreciation" column. There he read: "The minister extends his thanks to Elder Brown for his gift of fruit and for the spirit in which it was given." ============================================= KLEPTOMANIAC CAT The first time I saw my cat 'Tinker,' she was a kitten in a hardware store. She was happily digging in the cash register, sending coins flying. The owner shooed her away, but not before Tinker grabbed a $20.00 bill in her mouth and sped off with it. I thought she was cute. I took her home.Over the years she has stolen jewellery, pens, pill bottles, a watch, wax candles, keys, oven mitts, set of dentures, underwear, and yes, money. She hides her loot in her cat pan, pillowcases, in the laundry, shoes, even my purse. I have received many odd looks when I've opened my purse to find candles or shiny spoons. Not funny when I'm in a restaurant. I'll never forget the day at the bank, when a pair of my husbands briefs fell out of my purse. The bank manager was a very moral man. He knew my husband was away from home working. I was asking for a loan. I didn't get it. A friend spent the night at my house. She was extremely upset when her birth control pills went missing. Her husband was even more upset as he was booted to the dog house until she renewed her prescription. The pills showed up a week later, lodged in between my cook books. Once I had to explain to a cranky mother in law that my cat had stolen her dentures.They were in Tinkers cat pan. I boiled them before handing them back to the irate old lady. I really should be given an award for not grinning like a demented thing, when she popped those teeth into her mouth then announced she would be leaving. Ah, my Tinker cat. Thief or not, she is a champion! Stormy O' =============================================

======================================== My Parents had not been out together in quite some time. One Saturday, as Mom was finishing the dinner dishes, my father stepped up behind her. "Would you like to go out, girl?" he asked. Not even turning around, my mother quickly replied, "Oh, yes, I'd love to!" They had a wonderful evening, and it wasn't until the end of it that Dad confessed. His question had actually been directed to the family dog, lying near Mom's feet on the kitchen floor. ========================================
