If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. -- Mark Twain The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet. -- William Gibson
Two priests were talking together and the older one said to the younger, "You know, when you came into church with all your new ideas, I had questions about how you were going to fit in and how well your ideas were going to work." "When you wanted to put bucket seats down in the front two rows of seats, I had my doubts. But now, at every mass, the seats are filled up with young people, so I have to agree that it was a good idea." "Then, when you wanted to jazz up the choir and we started singing newer, peppier songs, I was afraid it would offend the parishioners. Now, we have a lot of new, younger choir members, and the music seems to pick up the services a lot more than the old music. So, once again I have to agree that you were right! "But when you wanted to put in the drive-through confessional, I have to admit I thought you'd lost it. But now, at least, there are more people coming to confession than ever. I think you've come up with another good idea." "However, the neon sign out front that says, 'Toot 'n tell or go to hell', has got to go!
On a visit to the library I happened to notice a man and a woman, both deaf, signing with intense gestures, apparently in a heated debate. The man said something, and the woman seemed upset. She started signing her reply very fast, to the point where the man couldn't understand a word; she also signed in big, wide gestures, which is the equivalent of volume. Finally, looking strained, her companion took her hands, "silencing" her. The he signed, very small and slowly, "You don't have to shout, I'm not blind."

A teenaged boy with spiked hair, nose ring, and baggy clothes says to his friend, "I don't really like to dress like this, but it keeps my parents from making me go with them to visit Aunt Helen." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gerald Rocchi, 32, of Ashland, Kentucky Armed with a stapler November 16, 2007 - ashland Kentucky - AP A man wearing a ski mask used a stapler to hold up an eastern Kentucky ice cream store - and briefly escaped with $175, authorities said. Gerald Rocchi, 32, was arrested shortly after he flashed a chrome-plated stapler at an employee of The Ice Cream Shop in Ashland on Tuesday and demanded money, police said. Ashland Police Capt. Don Petrella said he didn't know if Rocchi planned to shoot staples at the shop's employees if he didn't get the cash. Several witnesses saw Rocchi leave the shop and told police where he was headed, Petrella said. After arresting Rocchi, police searched his house and found money, a stapler and a ski mask, Petrella said. Petrella said the stapler's chrome finish could have made it look like a gun "if someone didn't get a good look at it." Rocchi was charged with first-degree robbery. ... ler_bandit

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Irene Re: Does SP1 fix Vista? Dear Webby Vista SP1 has been out in Beta for a while now. Does that finally fix it enough to make it good enough, or is it a dead end? I am going to buy a new machine and need to know which OS to order. Irene Dear Irene SP1 is just a collection of the security patches that have come out since last year. There is nothing awe inspiring in it, no interesting goodies, nothing that would fire up any enthusiasm or make you overlook that Vista is a lemon. Vista is still not good enough to sell. When you buy a computer with Vista pre-installed, you don't really buy Vista. It remains the property of the computer maker, who gets a subsidy for pre-installing it. That is why computers with Vista are $200 to $300 cheaper than computers with XP installed. No subsidy for XP. When something is so bad, that it has to be subsidized to the tune of a few hundred dollars, and is promptly formatted off most machines within the first week, I can't recommend it. Pay the extra $200 for an un-subsidized XP machine, or budget $100 to $150 to have your neighborhood computer fixer format it for you and put XP on it. Sooner or later you will do that anyway, and it is smarter to do that before you fill it up with data. Here is a lighthearted review of Vista: Vista Review Have FUN! DearWebby

Deeli's Kudos November 19, 2007 - Rochester, New York - AP Contractors working at the historic home of Susan B. Anthony found an unopened letter addressed to the famed suffragist, accompanied by her paycheck. The letter was dated April 2, 1901, and included the $41.06 check for Anthony's monthly salary as clerk of the National Woman's Suffrage Association. In the friendly note, association treasurer Harriet Taylor Upton tells Anthony about her recent election to her local school board. The Susan B. Anthony House was the activist's home and the site of her 1872 arrest for illegally voting in the presidential election. Staff and volunteers there think the letter was dropped and fell between the cracks in a stairway. ... -found.htm

A couple just started their Lamaze class and they were given an activity requiring the husband to wear a bag of sand - to give him an idea of what it feels like to be pregnant. The husband stood up and shrugged saying, "This doesn't feel so bad." The instructor then dropped a pen and asked the husband to pick it up. "You want me to pick up the pen as if I were pregnant, the way my wife would do it?" the husband asked. "Exactly," replied the instructor. To the delight of the other husbands, he turned to his wife and said, "Honey, pick up that pen for me and get me a coffee while you are up anyway."
