My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income. --- Errol Flynn Football is a mistake. It combines the two worst elements of American life. Violence and committee meetings. --- George F. Will
Thanks to Roland for this report: My son, Scott, an insurance broker in Florida, loves ocean fishing and takes his cell phone along on the boat. One morning we were drifting about ten miles offshore as Scott discussed business on the phone. Suddenly his rod bent double, and the reel screamed as line poured off the spool. Scott was master of the situation. "Pardon me," he told his customer calmly. "I have a call on another line."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 43 year old woman in Porter valley, California Sent in by Cookie Mighty Hunter! Woman Shoots Herself While Trying to Kill Mice Tuesday, July 08, 2008 POTTER VALLEY, Calif. A Mendocino County woman who was trying to kill mice in her trailer with a gun ended up shooting herself and another person. The 43-year-old woman pulled out her .44-caliber Magnum revolver after she saw the mice scurrying across the floor of her trailer on Highway 20 in Potter Valley, sheriff's officials said. But she accidentally dropped the gun, which went off as it struck the floor. The bullet went through the woman's kneecap, bounced off the keys sitting on the belt loop of a 42-year-old man in the trailer and grazed the man's groin before ending up in his coin pocket. Authorities did not release the shooting victims' names. The mice escaped the shooting unharmed, but PETA claims that the noise caused severe emotional trauma to the mice and was cruelty to the animals.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Tam Re: Connecting in hotels Dear Webby: hello, as always thank you for the humor, always love it. I have a question about my daughters laptop, how does that work at most motels? I am not sure if the one we are going to is wireless or not. If yes, then should pick up signal and be able to use the net correct? If it doesnt have wireless, do I need to get internet provider to be able to use it? This wireless stuff is all new to me. thanks for the help Tam Dear Tam When I prepare for a trip, I book all hotels and motels over the Internet. When you select a hotel and check up on it, you see if they have high speed Internet. They always mention it, if they got it. As a rule of thumb, 4* and 5* always have wireless high speed, 3* sometimes has wireless, sometimes just data ports. (Dial-Up) 2 star has a charge per call or directions to a pay-phone. Personally, if they don't have high speed Internet and smoking rooms, then they are not good enough for me. There usually is a satisfactory hotel or motel a block further. The better hotels have a card with log-on instructions and the password on the table or glued onto the power bar. If they don't, call the front desk and ask for it. When your wireless finds the signal, or when you plug in a network cable, and THEN open a browser, (-don't open one before that! -), the browser will be hijacked to the log-on page. Once you are logged in, you get control of the browser back and can do anything you can do at home. If a hotel or motel does not hve high sped Internet, then you have to use dial-up to an account that you already have. I have an Earthlink dial-up account, just in case some disaster strands me between towns, that have High Speed Internet. That has been my traveling account for about 14 years now. It comes in hande at least once or twice a year, when the DSL in some hotel malfunctions or is overloaded. No problem, I just dial up via Earthlink and send the Humor Letter out that way. Have FUN!

The class assignment in composition was to write about something unusual that happened during the past week. Little Ben got up to read his. "The neighbor fell in the well last week - " he began. "Good heavens," shrieked Mrs. Krup, the teacher. "Is he all right now?" "He must be," said little Ben. "He stopped yelling yesterday."
