Thanks to Sandie for this story: A property manager of single family residence was showing a unit to prospective tenants and asking the usual questions. "Professionally employed?" he asked. "We're a military family," the wife answered. "Children?" "Oh, yes! Ages nine and twelve," she answered proudly. "Animals?" "Oh, no," she said earnestly. "They're very well behaved."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to David Allen Young, 32, of Lancaster, California Cone zone to jail BY STEVE E. SWENSON, Californian staff writer Wednesday, Sep 17 2008 6:47 AM Last Updated: Wednesday, Sep 17 2008 2:18 PM A law-breaking past caught up with two Lancaster men in the cone zone Tuesday evening, the California Highway Patrol reported. David Allen Young, 32, was driving through a construction zone around 6:45 p.m. on Highway 58 near Comanche Road, allegedly going nearly 100 mph. Young swerved his 1991 Honda Prelude from the fast lane to the slow lane and began knocking over orange cones. Workers jumped out of his way, but one didn’t make it entirely out the way. Worker William Duford, 35, of Bakersfield, suffered minor leg injuries as he was struck. California Highway Patrol officer Greg Williams described Duford, a worker for Granite Construction Co., as "the luckiest man alive" for being able to avoid a more serious injury. Young lost control of his car and swerved into oncoming traffic before stopping. A nearby California Highway Patrol officer nabbed him as he was getting out of the car. Young was arrested on a charge of felony drunken driving, and his passenger, Alflie L. Ashmore, 41, of Lancaster, was arrested for public drunkenness, the CHP said. But then the officer learned that the two men have allegedly been involved in a strong arm robbery and assault in Tehachapi. The Tehachapi Police Department brought the robbery victim to the suspects and the victim identified them. So Young and Ashmore were also booked into jail on robbery and assault with a deadly weapon charge. Young’s bail is $96,000 and Ashmore’s is $77,000 but he also has a parole hold, jail officials reported.
A policeman is on scene at a terrible accident - body parts everywhere. He is making his notes of where the pieces are and comes across a head. He writes in his notebook: "Head on bullevard" and scratches out his spelling error. "Head on bouelevard" Nope, doesn't look right - scratch scratch. "Head on boolevard..." dang it! Scratch scratch. He looks around and sees that no one is looking at him as he kicks the head. "Head on curb."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Darlene Re: Sbcglobal Mail Problem Dear Webby my email address is **** husband and i both subscribe to the webby but for some reason for the last couple of weeks we have not received the jokes and pictures like we used to ...all we are getting is the left side of page .. the other side is blank and has nothing on far as we know we have not done anything different than usual and nothing has been done to our computer...could u please email me back and let me know if there is something we can do to start receiving it like we used to...we miss the jokes and pictures.... thank u..darlene Dear Darlene That problem is not anything YOU did. It's because Sbcglobal treats you as if you were a silly yahoo, and pushes the content on Internet Explorer a few feet over to the right. According to them, all silly yahoos are left wingers. They don't need or deserve the content from the right side, right? There is a trick around sbcglobal's shenanigans, though. If you hit REPLY, as if you were going to show somebody how crappy the mail is, then all of a sudden it becomes visible. You don't have to actually send the reply off. The threat alone is enough. Another trick is to use FireFox, Google Chrome, Opera, Maxthon, Safari or any browser other than Internet Explorer. Sbcglobal only messes with Internet Explorer. HTML mail shows fine on all the other browsers. Another solution is to get a better email service, like for example gmail. It is free too. If you want a referral to it, let me know.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~SOMETHING INTERESTING~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago, that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink, so that he would not look at the wife too closely, before the marriage had become a habit. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, or honeymoon.

By nature Christians are the most forgiving, understanding and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst at the get-go, they appreciate the importance of having different perspectives, they're slow to anger, quick to forgive and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love. "No, wait -- I meant Labrador Retrievers."
