Excellence is not an act, it is a habit. --- Aristotle The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors; that which it loves, and also that which it fears. — James Allen
Thanks to Tina for this classic: Always wear clean underwear in public, especially when working under your vehicle. From the Daily News comes this story of a Walsall couple who drove their car to Asda, only to have their car break down in the car park. The husband told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car. The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection, she saw a pair of hairy legs protruding from under the chassis. Unfortunately, although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned his private parts into glaringly public ones. Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts, and tucked everything back into place. On regaining her feet, she looked across the bonnet and found herself staring at her husband who was standing idly by. The RAC mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his forehead
A man went to his lawyer and stated, "I would like to make a will but I don't know exactly how to go about it." The lawyer said, "No problem, leave it all to me." The man looked somewhat upset as he said, "Well, I knew you were going to take a big slice, but I'd like to leave a little to my children, too!"

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sheridan Communications and Technology Middle School Dogooders run amok March 17, 2008 - New Haven, Connecticut - UPI A New Haven, Conn., eighth-grader was suspended from school and stripped of his class vice president title for buying a bag of Skittles at school. Sheridan Communications and Technology Middle School handed down the punishment in accordance with a 2003 New Haven school system policy banning all candy sales in schools as part of the district wellness policy, the New Haven Register reported Wednesday. Michael Sheridan's suspension was reduced from three days to one, but his mother said she still believes the punishment is too severe for the crime of purchasing candy from another student in the hallway. "It's too much. It's too unfair," Shelli Sheridan said. "He's never even had a detention." However, the district said it has been very clear about its policy toward candy sales on school grounds. "There are no candy sales allowed in schools, period," said school spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo. Copyright 2008 by United Press International

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Bob Re: Is IE7 safe now? Dear Webby I had to reformat my computer and the origional disk had IE 6. I had upgraded to IE 7 before formatting and had no problems with this version. I want to install IE 7 but I recall that you had several times mentioned that there were several problems with this version. Have these problems been solved or should I stay with IE 6? I liked IE 7 and would like to install it but I don't need problems. Comments please. Daily voter, Bob Dear Bob The IE7 problems still exist and neither the Dept of Defense nor the DoT nor Webby allow IE7 on any of our machines. We don't like having to format perfectly good machines, ya know. Have FUN! DearWebby
Little Johnny went up to his father and asked, "Dad, where did all of my intelligence come from?" Johnny's father replied, "Well, son, you must have gotten it from your mother, 'cause I still have mine."
Deeli's Kudos March 19, 2008 - Berlin Germany - AP A long love story is over at a German zoo: Petra the swan and her swan-shaped paddleboat are parting ways. Petra, a black swan, became a minor celebrity in 2006 when she became so attached to the boat — which is shaped like an oversized white swan — that she refused to leave its side. Officials in the western city of Muenster decided to let her stay with it over the winter, bringing both bird and boat into a city zoo. However, Petra met a live swan this winter. Zoo director Joerg Adler says she and her new mate — a white swan — are building a nest together. The boat is to be returned to its local owner on Thursday. http://www.happynews.com/news/3192008/s ... t-ways.htm
