"According to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), today's turkeys are so fat that they can't stand, they're susceptible to heart attacks, and they have trouble mating. I'm sorry, but that's us they're talking about." --- Jay Leno "One thing I hope I'll never be is drunk with my own power. And anybody who says I am will never work in this town again!" --- Jim Carrey
Two intrepid explorers met in the heart of the Brazilian jungle. "I'm here," declared one, "to commune with nature in the raw, to contemplate the eternal verities and to widen my horizons. And you, sir?" "I," sighed the second explorer, "came because my young daughter has begun violin lessons."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Vuong Pham, 48, in Westminster, CA Sent in by Deeli Klepto WESTMINSTER, Calif. A suspicious surplus of Christmas spirit led to the arrest of a man in Southern California. Westminster police say officers responded to a disturbance call at the house of 48-year-old Vuong Pham, where they found rooms overflowing with wicker reindeer, plastic snowmen and inflatable Santas. For weeks people in Pham's Orange County neighborhood had reported a steady disappearance of lights, figures and faux trees from their front yards. Police say they connected the thefts to Pham after looking through his house and arrested him Monday on suspicion of grand theft and possession of stolen property. Officer Cameron Knauerhaze says it took three trucks to take all the Christmas contraband to the station. Police weren't clear on the motive.
"I hope you didn't take it personally, Reverend," an embarrassed woman said after a church service, "when my husband walked out during your sermon." "I did find it rather disconcerting," the preacher replied. "It's not a reflection on you, sir," insisted the churchgoer. "Ralph has been walking in his sleep ever since he was a child."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Rebecca Re: Key Logger intrusion attempt Hello Webby. I do not know if I am at the right email address for AngelEyes Cards but this was the only contact email address I could find. I would not bother if this were not important. I have a very sophisticated spyware program running in the background and while I was on AngelEyes and had just sent a card with poem and music, my spyware program had a pop up screen that told me there was a key logging program trying to load onto or access my computer!! The name of is was: paq keylog 5.0 I thought you needed to know this. Thank you for the sites you host. Take care and have a blessed Christmas and a safe New Year. Sincerely, Rebecca A. Dear Rebecca Sounds like the timing was just a coincidence. is on a UNIX server and can't be infected with Windows programs. All it can do is show pages and send cards. Those key loggers and other hack programs just try one computer after another, until they find some unprotected grampa or gramma. It makes no difference what you got running or what you are visiting at the time, those programs are like burglars trying the back doors of all houses, to see if one is unlocked. As long as you are connected to te Internet, they can knock on your door. If you have a firewall, they go elsewhere. If you don't, they get in. That is why you use a fire-wall and anti-spyware and anti-virus programs. You would have seen the same warning, no matter what you did in the foreground. Just avoid using Internet Explorer and use FireFox or Opera instead. Have FUN! DearWebby

As a frequent flier, I get annoyed when other passengers disregard the airline attendant's pleas to stay seated when the plane taxies to the gate. One attendant captured my heart by announcing: "The captain will be parking the aircraft at Gate 41 in approximately two minutes. I've seen the captain's car. So if I were you, I'd remain seated."

Daily tip from Magnet for Picking Up Needles and Pins Keep a magnet by your sewing machine to pick up needles and metal pins when they fall on the floor. You can also keep needles and pins from falling on the floor in the first place by putting them on a magnet when you are not using them. Tool and better hardware stores sell flexible magnetic strips with a self-adhesive back. They are strong enough to hold mechanic's tools on a wall, and can easily carry an array of different scissors and needles. I made an embroidery case for a friend once and glued those strips into an attache case. It worked out great and even with rough handling nothing ever came loose. Have FUN!

A man approached a local in a village he was visiting. "What's the quickest way to York?" The local scratched his head. "Are you walking or driving?" he asked the stranger. "I'm driving." "That's the quickest way!"
