I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging
to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body,
it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive
religious experience.

Thanks to Corrine for this story:

When my sister Andrea got married, she asked to wear my
mother's wedding dress. The day she tried it on for the
first time I was sitting with Mother in the living room as

Andrea descended the stairs. The gown was a perfect fit on
her petite frame. Mother's eyes welled with tears. I put my
arm around her.

"You're not losing a daughter," I reminded her in time-
honored fashion. "You're gaining a son."

"Oh, forget about that BS!" she wailed with a sob.
"I used to fit into that dress!"

A Yuppie was sent a ransom note saying that he was to
bring $50,000 to the 17th hole of the country club at
10 o'clock the next day if he ever wanted to see his
wife alive again.

He didn't arrive until almost 12:30. A masked man stepped
out from behind some bushes and growled,
"What took ya so long? You're over two hours late."

"Hey ! Give me a break." whined the Yuppie.
"I have a 27 handicap."

Authorities said the 42-year-old man snatched a US$2,000 gold chain from the Bronx jewelry store on Friday and was making his getaway. A store clerk and two bystanders were chasing the man on foot when he pedaled into an intersection and was hit by a fast-moving bus, police said. The suspect was taken to a hospital, where he died from head injuries. Five passengers who were jostled when the bus slammed on its brakes were also examined at the hospital. "He lost his life for $2,000," said the store's owner, Lakhwinder Singh. "He'd sell it for maybe only two or three hundred. That makes no sense." ===========================================

"Besides, we've been screwing for six months now and he doesn't suspect a thing."

How does one stop a neighbor from doing this? unk wes Dear Unc Wes Password your access. Or, if your neighbors don't have any hackabilly teenagers, rent them a share. Most routers are good for six shares. It is still a good idea to password your wireless and give each share a password. In many towns junior geeks go "war cruising" to find open networks, and use them to get onto the net to do all kinds of mischief. If you set up your wireless network according to the instructions at the link I printed yesterday, ... setup.mspx setting the passwords is part of the setup. Have FUN!

Kellie Lim, who became a triple amputee at age 8 because of bacterial meningitis, is to graduate from UCLA's medical school on Friday, and she plans to focus on childhood allergies and infectious disease. The Michigan native, 26, does not use a prosthetic arm and manages to perform most medical procedures including giving injections and taking blood with one arm. She walks on a pair of prosthetic legs. ''Just having that experience of being someone so sick and how devastating that can be not just for me but for my family too gives me a perspective that other people don't necessarily have,'' Lim said. Raised by a blind mother in suburban Detroit, Lim went through years of wheelchairs and painful therapy after toxic shock from the meningitis claimed her limbs and three fingertips on her remaining hand. Lim recently saw her childhood medical file, and learned that doctors had given her an 85 percent chance of dying of the meningitis. Just five months after the amputations, Lim returned to a normal school. Born right-handed, she learned to write and work with her left. Lim's teachers and fellow students said she exudes a calm that makes them and her patients forget her physical circumstances. Lim will begin a residency program at the UCLA Medical Center.

Daily tip from Recycled Water For Plants Don't pour water that you use for cooking vegetables down the drain. It works great for watering plants, especially when there is a water shortage. Fish tank water is also full of nutrients that your plants will love. Dish water and tub water can also be used. All the "Grey Water" can be used directly in your garden. Don't worry about buying phosphate free soaps and detergents so as not to fertilize lakes and canals, if you use your grey water in your garden. It loves that stuff! Have FUN! DearWebby

The graduate with a Science degree asks, "Why does it work?" The graduate with an Engineering degree asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an Accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?" The graduate with an Arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?" ============================================= START THE WHAT? I was a city girl, left on the farm when my husband was away. A blizzard hit. The temperature dropped, snow piled up, roads closed, plus the power went out. My house had an old wood cooking stove. I fired that up. I was feeling cosy, when I thought of the baby animals in the barn. Outside the freezing wind took my breath away. I gathered up three tiny piglets, tucked them inside my parka, got to the house then let them go. I put papers on the floor, used chairs to barricade them in a corner and dashed back.This round I brought in a box of chicks. They fit right under the stove. Next trip was harder, The shivering three day old calf was stubborn. I put a rope around his neck and we dragged each other though the drifts until we reached the house. The pigs had gotten loose, but I had one more trip to make. I had two pet rabbits, plus the farm dog had just had a litter of pups. With puppies in my pockets, a rabbit under each arm, mama dog followed me to the house. Bedlam! The chicks were all over, the calf was sucking on a tea towel, mama dog took one look at the pigs then tried to herd them, the rabbits chased the chicks and I still had pockets full of puppies. But, they would all survive the storm. I felt so proud. I was sure my hubby would praise me for my hard work. When he arrived home he just looked stunned. He finally looked at me and said, "Honey, these critters were fine in the barn. All you had to do was start the generator!" Stormy O' =============================================

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice! The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you." ========================================
