It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues. --- Abraham Lincoln I know I'm going to get old and be one of those crazy women who sits on balconies and spits on people and screams, 'Get a haircut!' I know this, and I don't really fear it. I'd just like to move toward it with as much grace and dignity as possible. --- Carrie Fisher
There was a gentleman in the hospital bed next to me. He was covered with bandages from head to toe. I said to him, "What do you do for a living?" He said, "I'm a former window washer." I asked, "When did you give it up?" He replied, "Halfway down."

A lady took her friend to get her car from the mechanic. When her friend came out she asked her, "Is everything okay with your car now?" Her friend said, "Yes, thank goodness. I was worried that the mechanic might try to take advantage of me, so I was relieved when he told me all I needed was 69 dollars worth of blinker fluid."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Franz Dobusch and Hannelore Rauter in Linz, Austria Eco excuse for sacrilege Mayor calls political nativity crib rubbish An Austrian mayor ordered cleaners to chuck out the Town Hall's ECO Christmas nativity crib - after mistaking it for rubbish. The green display - made from recycled materials - was meant to be an artistic criticism of the over commercialization of the holiday season, totally missing the point of the nativity scene. Franz Dobusch, mayor of Linz, northern Austria, told staff to scrap it, thinking it was just a pile of old packaging and advertising brochures. When fans of the "artist" protested, the mayor chickened and saved the pathetic display from the scrapheap. "Artist" Hannelore Rauter said the piece was intended to make people "step back and become more reflective" at Christmas. ------------------ Personally, I would suggest throwing both the sacrilegious "artist" and the gutless mayor into the dump. Even though I am not very religious, I respect every religion's sacred and traditional icons, and don't think they should be abused for political messages.
Little Johnny burst through the front door with a smile on his face. Surprised that Johnny was home so early, his mother asked, "Why are you home from school so early?" Johnny answered, "I was the only one who could answer a question." "Oh, really? What was the question?" his mother asked. "Who threw the blackboard eraser at the teacher?"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dina Re: Music stops Dear Webby, I use IE for playing Accu Radio as background music in the office. That has worked fine for years, but lately it stopped once or twice a day. Then I have to close the IE and open it again. Is there a problem with Accu Radio or is it my computer? Thanks Dina Dear Dina The problem is IE. I realize that IE is convenient for background programs, so that you can shrink them out of the way, without affecting the browser window sizes of other or new browser windows, but IE is simply not safe or reliable enough. Make sure you have ALL IE Windows closed, not just minimized, when you go to PayPal, any bank or onto a shopping cart, and use only FireFox or Opera for those. Type or paste your custom URL for AccuRadio, for example ... el=country into the FireFox address bar, hold down SHIFT, and then click on the little Do-To arrow at the right of the address bar. It will open in a new browser window, not in a new tab. Then you can shrink that new browser window, or keep it separate, so that you can mute the radio quickly when a voice call comes in, without affecting the volume of the voice calls. Have FUN!

All the way home in the back seat of the car the boy was quiet. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a good Christian home, but I want to stay with you guys instead.
