The golden rule is that there are no golden rules. --- George Bernard Shaw, When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other. --- Eric Hoffer
Curling - Shuffleboard, bowling and janitorial work finally get their respect in this sport. In curling, a stone is pushed down a frozen playing area, which is 46 yards long and 14 feet wide, and the closest to the "button" wins. Members of the curling team are allowed to use brooms to sweep the ice ahead of the stone so it will go further. Another part of the sport is to knock an opponents stone away from the button. The earliest known curling stone, found in Scotland, dates back to 1511, and a 1560 painting by the Flemish artist Pieter Breughel shows a Dutch curling scene, complete with brooms. Breughel's painting, entitled "Sweep, Ye Drunken Bastards! Sweep!" is the earliest known visual representation of curling. Relation Chips I. I am thy Main Squeeze; thou shalt squeeze no others before me. II. Thou shalt not take the name of thy Squeeze in vain, nor badmouth me behind my back. III. Remember our Anniversary, and keep it holy. Or else. IV. Honor MY mother and father. THINE are too damn weird. V. Thou shalt not kill my love by behaving tackily and making me embarrassed to be seen with thee. VI. Thou shalt not commit adultery, nor shalt thou even THINK about it if thou knowest what's good for thee. VII. Thou shalt not steal from my wallet/purse while I am in thy bathroom, nor use my credit cards, nor make long-distance calls from my telephone. VIII. Thou shalt not talk about our personal problems to our friends. IX. Thou shalt not covet the higher market price of thy neighbor's house. X. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Squeeze, nor son or daughter, nor stereo, nor BMW.

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to May Norberg, head of Myran daycare in Gaellivare, northern Sweden Uniform fanatic February 16, 2008 - Gaellivare, Sweden - AFP A Swedish daycare has banned children and employees from wearing clothing with polka dots and stripes because the patterns give a staff member migraines. "I feel sorry for the staff member so I adjusted the work environment. The person in question has to be able to work," May Norberg, head of Myran daycare in Gaellivare, northern Sweden. Parents said that children who show up wrongly dressed in the morning are provided with extra clothing -- in solid colours -- to change into. The head of the Swedish Home and School Association, Ulf Eriksson, said he was surprised by the measure. "I have a hard time imagining that (the school) is allowed to make such demands," he told the paper. ... th_offbeat

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Tom Re: limeWire Dear Webby, I have been told by numerous people that having can ruin your computer. Are you familiar with If so, what is your opinion? Tom Dear Tom They are right. LimeWire opens your computer to others to come and get music and movies that you have, just like you can go get music and video from others. The kids brag that it is easy to break out of the designated trading zones and mess around. I would not use it, especially not on a machine with important stuff on it. If you think you have to use it, get a cheap, used klunker, format it with XP, and use that machine only as a juke-box and for lime-wire and similar peer to peer sharing arrangements. As long as that machine is not networked with your other machines, it should be safe. Have FUN! DearWebby

Upon returning to their car from a shopping tour, one of the young ladies realized that she had forgotten to stop at the pharmacy for her birth control pills. She rushed into the nearest pharmacy and gave her prescription to the pharmacist. "Please fill this immediately," she said. "I've got people waiting in my car!"

Deeli's Kudos February 21. 2008 - Albuquerque, New Mexico - AP A cat that fled a house fire is back home in Albuquerque, N.M., after turning up some 240 miles away. The black and white cat named Miko disappeared in December, on the night of the fire. About two weeks ago, Miko's owner got a call from an animal shelter in Pueblo, Colo., saying her cat was safe. Officials at the shelter speculate that the cat, trying to keep warm, hopped a tractor-trailer and rode it to Colorado. When they found her, her collar was missing. But shelter officials scanned the microchip in her neck and came up with her owner's name. ... s-away.htm

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances." During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected, and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up." At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star- Spangled Banner." And that is how the substitute organist became the permanent organist.

Daily tip from Broom Foot Cleaner If you have an old bristle broom that you are about to retire, put it to good use as a boot and shoe cleaner by your front or back door. Cut the handle about halfway and bury the remaining handle in the ground. Leave the bristles pointing up in the air for people to wipe their feet on.
