A man was driving recklessly down the interstate one day and his girlfriend in the passenger seat was getting very upset. When the man finally realized that she was not happy with his driving and said, "Baby I'm sorry for driving so recklessly; I should be more careful when I have precious cargo!" The girlfriend looked at him and said, "Oh, that's so sweet baby!" "Yeah, those golf clubs in the trunk cost a mint!" He is walking with a limp these days. And alone.
There was a guy telling his friend that he and his wife had a serious argument the night before. "But it ended," he said, "when she came crawling to me on her hands and knees." "What did she say?" asked the friend. The husband replied, "She said, 'Come out from under that bed, and fight like a man, you coward!'"
Thanks to my dad for this picture: Silvretta Lake, one of the oldest hydro dam lakes.The green water is "glacier milk", loaded with minerals and metals like a super concentrate of nutritional supplements. It tastes quit ok, but definitely not like bland city water.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Evans, 46, from Boulder, Colorado Unlucky, or just dumb cyclist? A US cyclist was knocked down by a car and a train in separate accidents within six hours of each other. Unlucky Robert Evans, 46, from Boulder, Colorado, was first hit by a car in a hit-and-run incident. Mr Evans was taken to hospital but later released, reports Metro. He was on his way back to town when he was hit by a train while he was walking his bicycle across a railroad bridge. He was later found in a creek and again taken to hospital, but his injuries were not life-threatening. To add to his woes, Evans faces a ticket from police for trespassing on the rail bridge which is not open to pedestrians.
One day a professor was giving a big test to his students. He handed out all of the tests and went back to his desk to wait. Once the test was over, the students all handed the tests back in. The professor noticed that one of the students had attached a $100 bill to his test with a note saying "A dollar per point." The next class the professor handed the tests back out. This student got back his test and $64 change.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Carrie Re: Files lost during file move Dear Webby, I moved a bunch of pictures from my attachments/downloads directory to my Landscapes directory, or tried to. On the way, I accidentally bumped the mouse against my coffee mug, and the files were gone. They are neither where the were before, nor where they were supposed to go. Help! Carrie Dear Carrie Relax. The files are not gone, just in the wrong place. Look in the email or IM, by which you received them, for the name of one of them. Then click on START, SEARCH, and paste that file name. The SEARCH will find the location. All of them will be there. Then you can complete the move from there to the proper destination. Have FUN! DearWebby

The Prussian Army's scheme of classifying recruits: They classified them on two axes: smart vs. stupid, and industrious vs. lazy. Smart + lazy became commissioned officers. Smart + industrious became non-commissioned officers. Stupid + lazy became cannon fodder. Stupid + industrious were taken out back and shot before they did any damage.

Daily tip from Protecting Plants From Slugs Cut old metal window screens into 1x1 inch squares. Then cut a hole in the center of the square and put it on the ground around the plant. Slugs don't like to slither across window screens Visit ThriftyFun For More Pest Control Tips Slugs don't like coarse sawdust from chainsaws either. Some woods, like for example cedar, also drive off moths and many different bugs. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

I have five siblings, three sisters and two brothers. One night I was chatting with my Mom about how she had changed as a mother from the first child to the last. She told me she had mellowed a lot over the years: "When your oldest sister coughed or sneezed, I called the ambulance. When your youngest brother swallowed a dime, I just told him it was coming out of his allowance."
