The easiest way for your children to learn about money is for you to not to have any. --- Katharine Whitehorn Fortune does not change men, it unmasks them. --- Suzanne Necker
The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, wildy gesturing with one hand and jerking the mike cord along with the other. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he gets loose, we better run!"
A grandmother overheard her 5-year-old granddaughter playing "wedding." The wedding vows went like this: "You have the right to remain silent, anything you say will be held against you, you don't have the right to have an attorney present, but you may kiss the bride."

Customer at a counter of a lawn ornament shop: "Give me four of those pinwheels, two of those pink flamingos, two of the sunflowers, and one of those bent-over grandma in bloomers." Cashier reply's: "That'll be eight dollars for the pinwheels, ten dollars for the flamingos, six dollars for the sunflowers, and an apology to my wife!" Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tomas Delgado January 25, 2008 - Madrid, Spain - Reuters Thanks to Ross for this submission A Spanish driver who collided with a bicyclist is suing the dead youth's family $29,300 for the damage the impact of his body did to his luxury car. Businessman Tomas Delgado says 17-year-old Enaitz Iriondo caused $20,500 of damage to his Audi A8 in the fatal 2004 crash in La Rioja region. The youth had been cycling alone at night without reflective clothing or a helmet, according to a police report cited by El Pais. Delgado, who has faced no criminal charges for the incident, wants a further 6,000 euros to cover the cost of hiring another vehicle while his car was being repaired. "I'm also a victim in all of this, you can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine," Delgado said ahead of a January 30 legal decision on his suit. The family said they had previously pitied Delgado for the guilt he must feel at killing their son but were now disgusted that his greatest concern appeared to be money. http://snipurl.com/1ycbp

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Mellie Re: Extra USB Port Hi Webby, I enjoy your column every day, but lately I've had to enjoy it from my work computer. I have discovered the joys of flash drives, and use them to save my email til I can get home an put them on my personal computer. The problem is that my USB ports are on the back of my computer and it's hard to reach that area. Is there some sort of thing that I can plug into the back of my computer that has USB ports on it so I don't have to bend over and tip my CPU every time I want to load files to my computer? Thanks, mellie Dear Mellie You need a USB hub. With some shopping around you can find 4 to 7 port USB hubs for under $5. Here is one for $4.75 USB Hub $4.75 You just stick that to the side of the monitor with double sided tape, and have 4 USB ports where they are the most convenient. Some hubs come with a cable to reach from the back of your computer to the monitor, some don't. However, any USB cable from any, no longer used device will do fine. Once you have chosen a USB hub, have a look and see what kind of cable it needs. The most common are the AB cables. A is for the flat male plug B is for the little house shaped male plug. A 6 foot long AB cable is usually around $2.50 - $3, less at garage sales. Have FUN! DearWebby

Deeli's Kudos January 25, 2008 - St. Paul, Minnesota - UPI The University of St. Thomas received an anonymous donation of $50 million, which the Minnesota university says is one of its three largest gifts. The donation was given to the university's Opus College of Business as part of the St.Paul, Minn., institution's $500 million "Opening Doors" capital campaign. University officials said the donation will help increase the college's endowment and support student scholarships and faculty research. Last fall, the university got a $60 million gift from Penny and Lee Anderson, owner and chairman of APi Group Inc. In 2000, St. Thomas received a $50 million gift from Best Buy founder and chairman Richard Schulze and his late wife, Sandra. http://www.arcamax.com/newsheadlines/s-293025-423593

Steve wasn't feeling well and so he went to the doctor to get himself checked. After a thorough examination, the doctor said, "Well, Steve, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up alcohol, and stop smoking." "To be honest with you, Doc," said Steve, "I don't deserve the best. What's the SECOND best?"
