Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity --- George Patton
Thanks to Sandie for this story: I was in a department store dressing room when I overheard a woman in the next booth make disparaging remarks about the clothes she was trying on. Finally, an attendant knocked on her door and asked if there was a specific color or style she could get for her. "I need a dress for my class reunion," the woman answered. "I don't care what color or style, as long as it makes me look twenty pounds lighter and ten years younger." From another dressing room, I heard a woman call out, "Make that two!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Dutch government Thanks to Sandie for sending in this link: What are they smoking in THAT government? A Dutch ban on cigarette smoking in public places takes effect today, but people still will be able to light up in the country's cafes as long as they are smoking pot. The nationwide tobacco ban is intended to protect workers from secondhand nicotine smoke in bars, cafes and restaurants, not to keep them from getting stoned. ... amp;page=1
My six-year-old grandson was playing one of his video games while I worked in the kitchen near him. He asked,"Grandma, what does 'veni, vidi, vici' mean?" I answered,"It means 'I came, I saw, I conquered.' Why do you ask?" He said,"It's here on my game." A short while later I heard him say, "So that's what the ol Romans said instead of 'Been there, done that, got their t-shirt' ?"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Frank Re: Small fonts on MSN Dear Webby, Another question for you... I've recently upgraded my monitor to a 22 inch Acer LCD monitor. is my home page for the internet and I've set the font size to large on the home page (view, text size, large) but it still appears small on the MSN home page. Other pages ie google are fine. Is there something else that I should be doing? Thanks for the help and I keep voting on your site daily. Frank Dear Frank I had a look at their site and it does indeed look like it was written for people with little girl's eyesight, and zooms only from tiny to medium. It probably looks OK on the old 800 x 600 Mac that they use to write the page, but at today's resolution on current Windows machines, their font size limit is too low. Since all other pages display properly and only MSN malfunctions, I would suggest contacting MSN about that. Have FUN! Dear Webby

Daily tip from Overflowing Toilet Take off the back of the toilet tank and push the stopper down so it stops allowing water into the bowl. Then reach down behind the toilet and turn off the water valve. Find your handy plunger to take care of the blockage. A few squirts of dish soap followed by hot water and waiting a bit, then plunging, usually unclogs it.

A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones having gone to sea, his wife desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety."
