". . . if you can tell the difference between good advice and bad advice, you don't need advice." --- Laurence J. Peter "Old people love to give good advice; it compensates them for their inability to set a bad example." --- Duc de La Rochefoucald
An annoyingly self-righteous man went to the doctor for a check-up. He said, "I feel terrible. Please examine me and tell me what is wrong." "Let's begin with a few questions," said the doctor, "Do you drink much?" "Alcohol?" said the man. "I'm a teetotaler. Never touch a drop." "How about smoking?" asked the doctor. "Never," replied the man. "Tobacco is bad, and I have strong principles against it." "Well, uh." asked the doctor, "do you have much sex life?" "Oh, no," said the man. "Sex is sin. I'm in bed by 10:30 every night and I always have been." The doctor paused, looked at the man hard, and asked, "Well, do you have pains in your head?" "Yes," said the man. "I have terrible pains in my head." "O.K.," said the doctor. "That's your trouble. Your halo is on too tight!!
Two men were talking. "My son asked me what I did during the Sexual Revolution," said one. "I told him I was captured early and spent the duration doing the dishes.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 31 year old Bonehead in South Hurstville, Australia "Motorist drives off after having his licence revoked A Sydney man caught driving at more than twice the speed limit had his licence suspended on the spot last night - then got back into his car and drove off. The 31-year-old was allegedly clocked doing 147km/h in a 60km/h zone on Tom Uglys Bridge at Blakehurst about 11.30pm. Police pulled over the red Toyota Celica and stripped him of his licence, issuing the South Hurstville man with a Field Court Attendance Notice for speeding in a manner dangerous to the public. But the 31-year-old then jumped back into his car and drove away, stopping once, then again a short time later, when police took him to Hurstville police station. He was also charged with two counts of driving while suspended.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Harold Re: Gmail POP Dear Webby, I need to use a proper POP email program, where I can file mail from different clients in separate mailboxes or folders, not just tag it like it is done on Gmail. Is there a solution to that? Harold Dear Harold Absolutely no problem doing that. There are even more than just one way that will work for you. 1) You can have one or more gmail accounts forward to your ISP based POP account. 2) If you have just one gmail account, then you can use your favorite POP program to directly access your gmail account. There is one caution I would like to mention: Gmail has good spam filtering, and you will accumulate a lot of spam in the spam box. Keep an eye on how close you get to your 7 GB limit and dump the spam now and then. However, that just drops it down into the trash, and still counts. You have to dump the trash too. By using gmail as a reliable mail and MailWasher as a final spam control, and a full feature POP program like Eudora or Pegasus, you got the best of all worlds. Have FUN! DearWebby
The other day I needed to call home from downtown, but the only pay phone I could find was in use. So I stood to the side to politely wait until it was free, thinking it would only be a couple of minutes. Five minutes went by, and still the man was on the phone. He was just standing there, not saying a word. Two minutes later, he was still not talking. Finally, I tapped him on the shoulder and asked if I could use the phone. I really wouldn't be long, but needed to make an important call. "Hold your horses," he responded, covering the receiver. "I'm talking to my wife......"

Daily tip from Seasoning Fries When making french fries in the oven, whether they be a name brand variety or wedges cut from your own potatoes. Sprinkle the fries with different seasonings to give your family different varieties of flavors. Make some lemon pepper flavored, sprinkle some with garlic powder, maybe some with Cajun seasoning. I got this idea when my husband decided he didn't like the way I flavored the whole pan. Each row I season differently. Try it! By Terri Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

A lady dropped her handbag in the bustle of weekend shopping. An honest, little boy noticed her drop the handbag, so he picked it up and returned it to her. The lady looked into her handbag and commented, "Hmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills." The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a purse, the owner didn't have any change for a reward."

The teacher advised the class to start the day with the Pledge of Allegiance, and instructed them to put their right hands over their hearts and repeat after him. He looked around the room as he started the recitation, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..." When his eyes fell on Little Johnny, he noticed his hand over the right cheek of his buttocks. "Little Johnny, I will not continue till you put your hand over your heart." Little Johnny replied, "It is over my heart." After several attempts to get Little Johnny to put his hand over his heart, the teacher asked, "Why do you think that is your heart?" "Because, every time my Grandma comes to visit, she picks me up, pats me back here, and says, 'Bless your little heart,' and my Grandma wouldn't lie."
