Thanks to Sandie for this story: On their 50th wedding anniversary, a couple summed up the reason for their long and happy marriage. The husband said, "I have tried never to be selfish. After all, there is no I in the word marriage." The wife said, "For my part, I have never corrected my husband's spelling."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to three teenagers in Baltimore Teens tried to rob undercover cop BALTIMORE (UPI) -- Three teenagers in Baltimore made a poor choice in victims when they allegedly attempted to rob a plainclothes officer, police say. Police said the teenagers lured the undercover officer into an alley with talk of a drug transaction and then tried to rob him, The Baltimore Sun reported. The officer, whose name wasn't released, showed his gun and grabbed one suspect but the other two got away. The 15-year-old suspect was charged with attempted armed robbery. The arresting officer had been working undercover as part of a drug investigation, the newspaper said. Copyright 2008 by United Press International
"Miss Johnson, I was just going over this letter you wrote. Your typing is definitely improving. I see that there are only six mistakes here." "Why thank you, sir. I do feel as though I am getting better at this part of my job." "Now then, let's take a look at the second line."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Wayne Re: What is an eBook ? Dear Webby What exactly is an eBook? What do I need to read one? Some eBooks say they have a warranty? Does that mean I can read and copy one, and then get my money back? Wayne Dear Wayne eBooks are just books or magazines or courses in downloadable form. No trees are killed, and nothing is shipped by post or courier. You simply download the file. Almost all eBooks are in PDF format to ensure that everybody sees it in exactly the same way, no matter what kind of computer they have. To read them, you need a PDF reader like Foxit or Adobe Reader. You can get those free in my tool box at http://webby.com/tools You can read eBooks on your computer. There is no need to print them out, though you certainly can. You can even copy them onto your laptop or a CD. Giving a copy to a family member or close friend is generally OK too, but uploading it and selling it or giving it away, will land you in jail. The warranty on eBooks is the same as on a newspaper dispenser. If you don't receive it, you get your money back. But don't expect to get your money back, after you have read and possiby copied a newspaper or eBook. Newspaper dispensers and eBook downloaders work in only one direction. With eBooks, don't pre-judge it by the number of pages, any more than you would Cliffs Notes. Quite often somebody has gone through a LOT of work to condense a mountain of information into a concise study guide that is short enough, so that it does not surpass your attention span or overload you with unnecessary fillers, like paper books usually do.

A man was sitting in a bar and noticed a group of people using sign language. He also noticed that the bartender was using sign language to speak to them. When the bartender returned to him, the man asked how he had learned to use sign language. The bartender explained that these were regular customers and had taught him to speak in sign. The man thought that was great. A few minutes later the man noticed that the people in the group were waving their hands around very wildly. The bartender looked over and signed "Now cut that out! I warned you!" and threw the group out of the bar. The man asked why he had done that and the bartender said, "If I told them once I told them 100 times - NO SINGING IN THE BAR!"
