If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self. --- Napoleon Hill:
HAVING GONE OUT for a large lunch with fellow workers, a secretary from our office who runs regularly was especially motivated to get to the gym after work. Our boss, who had also enjoyed the good food, suggested that she run an extra lap for him. As she was leaving the office, she called to the boss, "Get ready to start huffing and puffing, 'cause I'll be on your lap in half an hour!" This time, realizing what she'd just said, her face turned red even before her first lap.

During an arctic training exercise in Alaska intense cold played havoc with vehicles and equipment. One harassed battery commander was trying to cope with vehicles that wouldn't run and machinery that wouldn't work. He was wondering what else could go wrong when the door opened and a soldier rushed in to announce, "Hey, captain, the Northern Lights are out! Exasperated and without looking, the captain barked, "Well, go get the generator mechanic and have him fix the darn things!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ross M. Walsh, 26, of Linden, Iowa, and Lois K. Feldman, 38, of Carroll, Iowa Metrodome sexcapade Last update: November 26, 2008 - 7:02 AM While the Iowa Hawkeyes were scoring at will on the field Saturday night, two fans from the Hawkeye State were scoring elsewhere in the Metrodome. Police say a man and woman were "having relations" in a bathroom stall as a crowd cheered them on. Ross M. Walsh, 26, of Linden, Iowa, and Lois K. Feldman, 38, of Carroll, Iowa, were cited for misdemeanor indecent conduct. Walsh was released to his girlfriend and Feldman to her husband, police said. A security guard came upon the scene in the handicapped stall, police said. Police were summoned, and they separated the two. Both were intoxicated, said University Deputy Police Chief Chuck Miner.
Thanks to Bill for this story: I walked over to the attractive young woman seated across the bar and made a disparaging remark about some of the men who had been attempting to pick her up. She laughed and smiled, saying, "When I don't want a man's attentions," she confided, "and he asks where I live, I just say, 'I'm visiting here'." "Ha-ha," I laughed, relishing her humor, and inquired, "Where do you really live?" Her smile disappeared as she responded, "I'm just visiting here."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Roseann Re: Difference between B and EM in Html Dear Webby, I know you are an HTML wiz from way back. Nobody can give me a straight answer about this, but most say it is the same. What really IS the difference between B and EM for bolding text on pages? Thanks Roseann Dear Roseann For beginners, it IS the same. For pros, each one can be configured in the CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to be something different. You can for example set B to just bold the text and put it into Arial font, and set EM to extra bold it, set it into Comics font, Large, Italic, make it red, and give it a yellow background like this: This is in EM The reason for having two is just to have an extra tag that can be custom configured. If you need more, you can custom configure the H1 to H7 tags Have FUN! DearWebby

After my fifth-graders studied the history of the Alamo, I gave them a test with this bonus question: "What was the famous battle cry that later helped spur on independence for Texans?" One student's response: "Remember the alimony!"

Little Tony was so happy to see his grandmother that he ran up and gave her a big hug. "I'm so happy to see you, grandma. Now daddy will have to do that trick he's been promising to do!" His grandmother was curious. "What trick is that, sweetie?" The little guy smiled at her, "I heard daddy tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again!"
