Thanks to Cookie for this: I called my stockbroker today and asked him, "What are you buying" ? His answer: “Canned goods and ammunition.”
Joe and his wife get along just great, except that she's a "backseat driver" second to none. After years of putting up with her pestering, he finally decided he'd had enough and advised her that he would no longer drive with her in the car. Later that day, on his way home from doing some shopping at the mall, he heard his cell phone ring as he was merging onto a freeway. It was his wife calling. By chance, she had entered the freeway right behind him. "Honey," she said, "your turn signal is still on. And put on your lights; it's starting to rain."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Lisa Beth Solanik, 43, of Sandy Springs, Georgia Fleeing woman captured while trying to light crack pipe An Alpharetta woman who led Sandy Springs police on a high-speed chase Wednesday night was allegedly trying to light a crack pipe even as officers broke out a window of the vehicle to arrest her. The chase began in the 7800 block of Roswell Road after a tag check on a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe revealed that the registered driver’s license had been suspended for driving under the influence, Sandy Springs police Lt. Steve Rose said. When the officer attempted to stop the Santa Fe, Lisa Beth Solanik, 43, made a U-turn and sped northbound on Roswell Road. Rose said officers deployed “stop sticks” at Dunwoody Place and Roswell Road, deflating two of the suspect’s tires. “The car then drove onto Verdun Drive off Roberts Drive, where it struck one of the police vehicles,” Rose said. “The suspect’s car was then cornered and pinned to a stop by two Sandy Springs police vehicles.” Rose said that as officers were breaking the side window of the Santa Fe to take Solanik into custody, she was “in the process of trying to light what appeared to be a crack pipe. Solanik was charged with obstruction of a police officer, fleeing and/or attempting to elude a police officer, disorderly conduct, driving under the influence of drugs and eight traffic charges. She is in the Fulton County Jail, awaiting an initial court appearance on Friday. Rose said one Sandy Springs police officer was treated and released for a minor injury sustained during the chase.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Shelley Re: make Gmail the default mail program Hey Webby! I love your letter and look forward to it every day! Thank you for the laughter! I had a quick question for my favorite guru. How do you configure your computer to allow you to use gmail when you click a mail:to link in a webpage, instead of always trying to send it with outlook? I am running vista (Ugh, I know!!) on a laptop for school. Thank you for everything! Shelley Dear Shelley Download and install the free Gmail Notifier In the drop-down menu in it, select Gmail. Hit OK, and that's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby
From a church bulletin: "A new loudspeaker system has been installed in the church. It was given by Bert, one of our loyal members, in honor of his wife."

Daily tip from Grow Your Own Avocado Houseplant Here's a fun summer activity for the kids to enjoy and a rewarding way to recycle the left-over avocado seeds. 1. Wash the seed and suspend it (broad end down) over a water-filled glass using 3 toothpicks. The water should cover about an inch of the seed. 2. Place the glass in a warm location, out of direct sunlight. A mature seed will crack as roots and stem sprout in about 2 to 6 weeks. 3. When a stem grows to six or seven inches, cut it back to about three inches. 4. When the roots are thick and the stem has leafed out again, plant it in a rich humus soil, leaving the seed half exposed. Use a terra cotta pot with a 10-1/2 diameter. 5. Water the avocado plant generously, but let it dry out somewhat between watering. By Connie from Oden, Arkansas Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

A man is having a really bad day on the golf course. By the 14th hole, he's missed one putt too many, and he lets loose with a string of profanities, grabs his putter, and storms off toward the lake by the 15th tee. "Uh-oh," says his playing partner to the caddie, "There goes that club." "You think so?" asks the caddie. "I've got five bucks saying he'll miss the water."

The teen-aged beauty was telling a friend that she was really worried about her mother. It seems she's always fatigued from staying up all night long. Her friend asked, "What's she doing staying up all night? At her age, that's not good at all." The girl replied, "Waiting for me to come home."
