From those to whom much is given, much is required. --- John Fitzgerald Kennedy If there is to be any peace it will come through being, not having. --- Henry Miller:
Thanks to Sandie for this story: On a lonely, moonlit country road, a young man's car engine started to cough. Immediately pulling over to a scenic little spot, he said to the young lady next to him, "That's funny, I wonder what that knocking noise was." "I'll tell you one thing for sure," said the girl coolly. "It wasn't opportunity."

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew Kellett, 23, in Leeds, England Dumbest Crook May 26, 2008 - Leeds, England - UPI A British man has been deemed the city's "dumbest criminal" by authorities after he posted videos of himself engaging in anti-social actives on YouTube. Leeds City Council called Andrew Kellett, 23, the city's "dumbest criminal" after he put at least 80 videos on the Internet video-sharing site of people, including himself, participating in unlawful activities. It is reported the incriminating videos include footage of people taking drugs, racing cars and taking off from a gas station with stolen fuel. "Kellett must be in the running to be Leeds' dumbest criminal. He has handed us the evidence against him on a plate," said Les Carter, a member of Leeds City Council. Kellett Tuesday was given an interim anti-social behavior order at Leeds Magistrates Court, forbidding him from posting further illegal behaviors on YouTube until his hearing next month, because they can't keep up with his activities.

Ken and Melba had finished their breakfast at the retirement home and were relaxing in the library. "You know," said Melba, "today, in most marriage ceremonies, they don't use the word 'obey' anymore." "Too bad, isn't it?" retorted Ken. "It used to lend a little humor to the occasion."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Cathy Re: Internet Radio Dear Webby, Do you know of an Internet Radio that isn't just mostly commercials and that doesn't require RealPlayer and all the problems that brings with it? We just want it for light background music at the clinic, so almost any genre of music will be fine, except spastic head-banger rock. Thanks Cathy Dear Cathy Try http://accuradio.com They have a good selection of "stations", and they come in at a very modest 32 Kbit/sec that won't slow down anything, if you are on High Speed. They have very few commercials, sometimes none for a whole week, and they don't mind if you keep them on all year long. Accuradio is free, but they do accept donations. Repetition rate seems to be about once per two months, not twice per day like most local radio stations. They show title, artist, album, composer and label. Covering up their window, which has a banner, does not stop the music or interfere with it. It has a mute and volume control that does not affect your Windows volume control. You can turn the Accuradio volume down while making pager announcements or while you use Skype for long distance voice calls. It is quite civilized! Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Rubye for this story: A husband and wife came for counseling after 20 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 20 years they had been married. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage. Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?" The husband thought for a moment and replied, "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, she'll have to take the bus, because I need the truck to go fishing."

Deeli's Kudos May 27, 2008 - Kansas City, Missouri - UPI Frank Woodruff Buckles of West Virginia, at 107 years old, is the only known remaining United States veteran of World War I. Buckles, a Missouri native, is considered the "last surviving link" to the war, which ended nearly 90 years ago. On Saturday, Buckles was awarded the Veterans of Foreign Wars' Gold Medal of Merit In Kansas City, Mo. His photograph will hang in the National World War I Museum. "I am quite pleased with the reception I have received as a representative of World War I," Buckles said at the gathering. "And especially being here in Kansas City because I am among my fellow Missourians." Buckles was underage when he enlisted in the Army in 1917. He trained at Fort Riley, Kan., and was sent to France, where he drove an ambulance. He said he remembers well "the joy of the armistice" that came Nov. 11, 1918. After the war, Buckles was part of a unit that escorted German prisoners of war home. He was discharged from the Army in 1919. Copyright 2008 by United Press International

As a young married couple, a husband and a wife lived in a cheap housing complex near the military base where he was working. Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper thin and they had no privacy. That was painfully obvious one morning when the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone. She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbor. "Give this to your husband," he said, thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands. "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!"

Our argument was well under way as my wife and I left the party. Once we were in the car, words were flying. My wife had really worked up a storm and after a few choice words from me, she shouted, "Stop the car and let me out!" I pulled over to the curb. She unlocked the door and got out, but then looked around and got back in, saying, "Take me to a better neighborhood!"
