Thanks to Martin for this story:
Juan and Julio are panhandling at the freeway off ramp.
Juan drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage free house and
has lots of money to spend. Julio only brings in a few dollars
a day. Julio asks Juan how he can bring home a suitcase
packed full of $10 bills every day.

Juan says, "Look at your sign."
It reads: "I have no work, a wife & 6 kids to support"

Julio looks at Juan's sign. It reads:
"I only need another $10.00 to move back to Mexico."

A college physics professor was explaining a
particularly complicated concept to his class when
a pre-med student interrupted him.

"Why do we have to learn this stuff?" one young
man blurted out.

"To save lives," the professor responded before
continuing the lecture.

A few minutes later the student spoke up again.
"So how does physics save lives?"

The professor stared at the student for a long
time without saying a word.

Finally the professor continued. "Physics saves
lives," he said, "because it keeps the idiots
out of medical school."

Nude customers rousted at spa robbery Illusion holdup nets loss of $1,700 from safe, purses Friday, May 18, 2007 From staff and wire reports Huntsville Times LACEY'S SPRING - Armed robbers rousted two nude spa customers and "attendants" from private rooms during a holdup that netted about $1,700 in cash from wallets, purses and the safe. Morgan County Sheriff's investigator Terry Kelly said two men carrying handguns and an unarmed woman, all wearing ski masks and bandannas over their faces, entered Illusion Spa, 1128 U. S. 231, about 10:45 p. m. Tuesday and brought two female attendants and two male customers, all naked, from their private hot tub rooms. One of the attendants was forced to open the safe after the woman working the desk wasn't able to. The three left with the purses, wallets and cash, and Kelly said a fourth person is believed to have been the driver of the getaway car, believed to be a white Dodge Stratus. No one was injured. The unnamed clients left before police arrived. ... /@StoryAd? x ===========================================

And is it true that the speed falls off with distance? There is a nice, shady gazebo in the park across the street, and I am on the 10th floor, no balcony, but I can open one window a little bit. Could I reach that gazebo? Thanks Erin Dear Erin Yes, open air line of sight you should be able to get 250 feet even with a bargain router and basic wireless network card. The speed will drop significantly. On the same desk you will get speeds almost as good as those advertised, but at 250 feet you need an "N" type router and card to get decent browsing speed. If it is for work and email, an ordinary set will do, but if it is for play, you'll have to shell out quite a bit more money. Have FUN!

''I always joke that the last ticket is the winning one, but he said he only had enough money for three tickets,'' Schneider said. This time, her advice was no joke. The single mother, with nine maxed out credit cards and $8,500 in debt for her associate's degree, bought what turned out to be a $1 million winning ticket. ''I was numb. I still am,'' she said. Schneider, 32, opted to take 20 yearly payments of $50,000, or $34,500 after taxes. ''If I'd have taken a lump sum, I'd be broke again within five years,'' she said.

Daily tip from Removing Spider Mites from House Plants Take a Q-tip and dip it in isopropyl alcohol. Dab it on the white goo left by spider mites. Make sure to check both the front and back of leaves. If you have a lot of plants that can get a bit tedious, especially since you will have to repeat it once a week, if a new plant brought that pest into the house and the infection spread. An easier solution is cheap insecticidal soap or strained dish water misted over and under the plants. because spider mites really hurt a plant, it's a good idea to give them some tea made from really old compost the day after you soap them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Boudreaux and Thibodeaux were doing their usual Saturday night thing: drinking. Thibodeaux tells Boudreaux, "Let's have one more beer and go find us some women." Boudreaux tells him, "Oh, not me. I gots more den I can handle at home." Tibodeaux, well inebriated by now, says, "Mais, OK, let's have one more beer and go to your house, den!" ============================================= EVENING DOG SPA In the evening at a local RV park, a strange thing happens. Using a form of communication not known to man, all the dogs who are not on leash, begin to make their way to the end of the park. Not in a mad dash, they simply saunter along, stopping now and then to greet other dogs. The heat had been brutal for days. Some dogs had stayed inside air conditioned motor homes. Others were taken by their owners to a river to cool off. The majority of the dogs, lay panting in the shade. Until evening. I followed them one night. At one camp spot, someone had partially filled a round kiddie pool with crushed ice, then added water to the brim. It was hilarious to watch the dogs display such nice manners, as they waited patiently for a turn in the icy spa. One dog at a time, got in, soaked, stepped out, shook dry then headed back to his owners camp site. One dog stayed so long in the pool, that finally a big black Lab, put one paw on his back, indicating, "Time's up bud, let someone else have a turn." It was a ritual that amused us, brought the campers together to get to know each other, but more important, taught us that we'll all get a turn if we just show a bit of doggie patience!
