Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage the morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or hanged. --Abraham Lincoln
Who says today's kids aren't smart? Well, some of them are!! I wish I'd thought of this. Cookie At a high School in Montana a group of high schoolers played a prank on the school. They let three goats loose in the school. Before they let them go they painted numbers on the sides of the goats: 1,2,4. Local school administrators spent most of the day looking for #3.
A friend hosted a dinner party for people from work and everyone was encouraged to bring their children. All during the sit-down dinner one co-worker's three year old girl stared at the man sitting across from her. The girl could hardly eat her food for staring. The man checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his hair in place but nothing stopped her from staring at him. He tried his best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for him. He asked her "Why are you staring at me?" Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior and the table went quiet for her response. The little girl said "I want to see how you drink like a fish."

Thanks to Marg for this report: For all of you with teenagers or who had teenagers, you may want to know why they really have a lot in common with cats: 1. Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name. 2. No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all human efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot. 3. You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents. 4. Even if you tell jokes as well as Jay Leno, neither your cat nor you teen will ever crack a smile. 5. No cat or teenager shares you taste in music. 6. Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing. 7. Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did. 8. Cats and teenagers yawn in exactly the same manner, communicating that ultimate human ecstasy -- a sense of complete and utter boredom. 9. Cats and teenagers do not improve anyone's furniture. 10. Cats that are free to roam outside sometimes have been known to return in the middle of the night to deposit a dead animal in your bedroom. Teenagers are not above that sort of behavior. Thus, if you must raise teenagers, the best sources of advice are not other parents, but veterinarians. It is also a good idea to keep a guidebook on cats at hand at all times. And remember, above all else, put out the food and do not make any sudden moves in their direction. When they make up their minds, they will finally come to you for some affection and comfort, and it will be a triumphant moment for all concerned. As for the use of catnip as a reward or an enticement, that is being hotly debated. Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a drunk driver in Minnesota Maximizing jail time January 31, 2008 - Wilton, Minnesota - AP Chase Torgerson and Cody Charpentier were driving along a highway near Wilton when they saw a car fly through the air and crash into a median. They jumped out to help only to turn around moments later and see one of the passengers from the crashed car hop into Torgerson's vehicle and peel away. And, to make matters worse, the car thief rolled Torgerson's car, totalling it, just about 800 yards down the road on Highway 2. Torgerson, who has had National Guard training, began tending to an injured passenger who was dangling out of two blown-out windows. He even put his own gloves on the victim and, with wind chills at minus-34 degrees, he used his bare hand to call 911 with his cell phone. Once Torgerson's car was totaled, the car thief ran away. Authorities used a police dog to find the driver, who was hiding under a semitrailer truck. Wittenberg said all three people in the first vehicle were "heavily intoxicated." ... 42760.html

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: MSIE crashing at Google Dear Webby; Again as usual you had some funny jokes today. I also liked the tech suggestion. I saved it as sometimes I too get the wrong address show up in the auto fill. I have a question about Internet Explorer 6. I have a gmail address. When I get in to to read my mail I get an error box that tells me internet explorer has encountered a problem & must close. This does not happen when I'm in hotmail nor in yahoo mail programs. I do not know who to contact about this as I have had a hard time trying to contact gmail & get answers from them. Do you have any suggestions about this? Thanks for your help. Sharon Dear Sharon I found this: "This is a known bug in handling JavaScript that Microsoft introduced in several IE6 security updates, while trying to fix a different JavaScript handling bug. See bug report KB940072. Bug is actually triggered by the JScript usage of the web page that precedes the page where the crash occurs. A hotfix is available. IE7 has a similar startup crash problem but caused by a different .dll. Even though some people call it the "anti-Google bug", it's not. MSIE crashes at other pages too." Sharon, I have mine on automatic update with IE7 locked out, and it seems to have gotten updated in time and I never experienced any of those browser crashes. You can also use other browsers for those sites that the Microsoft browser can't handle. FireFox is quite good, Opera is excellent, but not free, Maxthon, the Chinese MSIE clone, has some MSIE bugs fixed, but not all. Have FUN! DearWebby

The student - not necessarily a well-prepared student - sat in his life science classroom staring at a question on the final exam paper. The question directed: "Give four advantages of breast milk ." What to write? He sighed, and began to scribble whatever came into his head, hoping for the best: 1. No need to boil. 2. Cats can't steal it. 3. Available whenever necessary. Um. So far so good - maybe. But the exam demanded a four-part answer. Again, what to write? Once more he sighed. He frowned. He scowled. Then sighed again. But suddenly, he brightened. He grabbed his pen, and triumphantly he scribbled his definitive answer: 4. Available in attractive containers. He got an A for it.

Deeli's Kudos February 1, 2008 - Medford, Wisconsin - AP A Wisconsin man says his trusty pickup is on the verge of making history. Frank Oresnik says his 1991 Chevy Silverado is about to pass the one million mile mark. He says the truck is 1,200 miles (1,930 kilometres) from a million. He plans to retire the vehicle once it hits the milestone. Oresnik credits proper maintenance and luck for allowing the truck to roll up so many miles. He bought the Silverado in June 1996 after the original owner put 41,000 miles ( 66,000 kilometres) on it. General Motors and Shell are said to be interested in examining the engine. ... mile_truck

A man walks into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the end of it. She is so beautiful he cannot take his mind off her, so he calls the bartender over and says, "Take that woman a drink on me." The bartender says, "It won't work." "What do you mean, it won't work?" "That woman," says the barkeep, "is hard-hearted and hostile. You won't get nowhere with her - nobody does!" "Okay," says the guy. "How about this: you got any Spanish fly?" "Spanish fly? No," says the bartender, "I've got Jewish Fly." "So, what the hell is Jewish fly?" "I don't know; I've never used it. You want to give it a try?" "Yes," says the guy, and the next chance he gets, on his way to the men's room, he reaches behind her back and drops the stuff in the woman's drink. Nothing happens for a long time, but then all of a sudden he feels her body close against his, and her voice is whispering hotly in his ear, and she's saying "I can't stand it anymore! .......You excite me so much...take me shopping!"

Daily tip from Get More Life Out of Sandpaper Just because a sandpaper has become flat doesn't necessarily mean it's worn out. The sandpaper may just be clogged with sawdust. Try removing the sawdust with a soft bristled brush. A suede brush made with brass wire or brass plated steel wire works very well for reviving sand paper, even if it is clogged with not completely dry glue or paint. The wire is harder than the glue, but softer than the grit. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

There was this man in a mental hospital. All day he would put his ear to the wall and listen. The doctors would watch this guy do this day after day. One doctor finally decided to see what the guy was listening to, so he put his ear up to the wall and listened. He heard nothing. So he turned to the mental patient and said, "I don't hear anything." The mental patient said, "Yeah, I know. It's been like that for months!"
