Thanks to Bob for this story: Sue and I got to kicking around living wills the other day. She got me to sign one. You know what a living will is, don't you? It's a document that gives her the legal right, if I become wired up to some mechanical device, to terminated my life. So, yesterday, I'm on the exercise bike, heart rate and oxy sensors hooked up, headphones on, .. . . . Luckily she is a poor shot and got the TV instead of me.
Thanks to the many who wrote in the name of the bird in yesterday's picture. It is a Cedar Waxwing Thanks to Walter for this picture: 2" hole cored through the mouth for water flow. Keystone over a spa, water will then cascade down to the pool Walter

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Erin Howard, 26 of Butler County, Ohio Sent in by Deeli Fanatic Drunk HAMILTON, Ohio (UPI) -- Prosecutors in Pennsylvania say a woman accused of killing her son in a drunken crash went to a bar after being freed from jail to attend his funeral. Erie County District Attorney Brad Foulk said Erin Howard, who is accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of her 6-year-old son, Samuel Carpenter, went straight from the Butler County, Ohio, church where Carpenter's funeral took place to a bar about a mile away. Howard, who allegedly admitted smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol while celebrating her 26th birthday before the fatal June 14 crash, was on a 24-hour release from the Erie County jail at the time. She was supposed to return to her cell by 3 p.m. Saturday, but was arrested about nine hours after the deadline at Tailgaters bar in Hamilton, Ohio. She has now been charged with a third-degree felony count of escape in addition to the involuntary manslaughter charge. Copyright 2008 by United Press International
A pious man, who had reached the age of 105, suddenly stopped going to synagogue. Alarmed by the old fellow's absence after so many years of faithful attendance, the Rabbi went to see him. He found him in excellent health, so the Rabbi asked, "How come after all these years we don't see you at services anymore?" The old man lowered his voice. "I'll tell you, Rabbi," he whispered. "When I got to be 90, I expected God to take me any day. But then I got to be 95, then 100, then 105. So, I figured that God is very busy and must've forgotten about me, and I don't want to remind Him!"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: HAC Re: MSIIE problems Dear Webby: Dumb question #32,448,376 -- what would happen if I were to remove Internet Explorer? I seem to encounter so many problems which cause me to shut down and then restart and they all have I.E. imbedded on the tool bar with little IE headings. Do have Mozilla Firefox installed but don't find it as easy to operate. Thanks for any advice you can give. Thanks, hac Dear Hac The IE icon on top is just a symbol that it is web stuff, and that IE is your default browser. If you change your default browser to Firefox, the blue e will change to the orange Firefox icon. It's the same with pictures too. If your default picture viewer and editor is PaintShopPro, then all JPG and GIF files in your file explorer will have a PSP icon. It doesn't change the files, just tells you what you got set as the default. Removing Internet Explorer is generally not a good idea. A lot of Windows things use parts of IE instead of re-inventing the wheel or duplicating stuff. If you get rid of it, you'll probably have to re-install it from the set-up CD. However, your problems are most likely caused by something else alltogether, and what you see is a result of the problem, not the cause. Have you recently installed RealPlayer or a RealPlayer substitute? Or utilities like Glary ? Or SP3 ? Some people, who installed those, wound up formatting the drive and re-installing XP from scratch. Have FUN! Dear Webby

LETTER TO THE DOCTOR Dear Sir, I wish to apply for an operation to make me sterile. My reasons are numerous, and after being married for 7 years and having 7 children I have come to the conclusion that contraceptives are totally useless. After getting married I was advised to use the 'Rhythm Method'. Despite trying the Tango and the Samba, my wife fell pregnant and I ruptured myself doing the Cha Cha Cha. A doctor suggested using the 'Safe Period'. At the time we were living with in-laws and had to wait for 3 weeks for a safe period when the house was empty. Needless to say, this didn't work. A lady of several years experience informed us that if we made love whilst breast feeding we would be alright. It's hardly Newcastle Brown Ale, but I did finish up with clear skin, silky hair and felt very healthy, and my wife was pregnant. Another old wives' tale we heard was that if my wife jumped up and down after intercourse this would prevent pregnancy. After constant breast feeding, including my earlier attempts, if my wife jumped up and down she would finish up with two black eyes and eventually knock herself unconscious. I asked a chemist about the 'Sheath'. The chemist demonstrated how easy it was to use, so I bought a packet. My wife fell pregnant again, which doesn't really surprise me as I fail to see how a Trojan stretched over the thumb, as the chemist showed, can prevent babies. She was supplied with the 'Coil' and after several unsuccessful attempts to fit it, we realized we had got a left hand thread and my wife is definitely a right hand screw. The 'Dutch Cap' came next; we were very hopeful of this as it did not interfere with our sex life at all, but alas it did give my wife severe headaches. We were given the largest size available but it was still too tight across her forehead. Finally we tried the 'Pill.' At first it kept falling out, then we realized we were doing it wrong. My wife started putting it between her knees, thus preventing me getting anywhere near her; this did work for a while until the night she forgot the Pill. You must appreciate my problem. If this operation is unsuccessful, I will have to revert to oral sex, although just talking about it can never substitute for the real thing. Yours faithfully, John

A spiritualist who'd recently been widowed met a colleague and reported excitedly that she'd just received a message from her dead husband - asking her to send him a pack of cigarettes. "The only thing is," she mused, "that I don't know where to send them." "Why not?" asked her friend. "Well, he didn't actually say that he was in Heaven - but I can't imagine he'd be in Hell." "Hm," responded the friend. "Well, maybe I shouldn't bring this up, but. . . did he mention anything about including matches in the package?"
