It is a far, far better thing to have a firm anchor in nonsense than to put out on the troubled sea of thought. --- John Kenneth Galbraith
Little Johnny came home from a birthday party at a friends house. Knowing his sweet tooth, Johnny's mother looked straight into his eyes and said, "I hope you didn't ask for a second piece of cake." "No," replied Johnny. "I only asked Mrs. Smith for the recipe, so you could make a cake just like it, and she gave me two more pieces without me having to ask for them."
A doctor, an engineer, a rabbi and a politician were debating who was the world's first professional. The Doctor said "It must have been a doctor. Who else could have helped with the world's first surgery of taking a rib from Adam to create Eve, the first woman? "No," said the rabbi. "It must have been a rabbi, since the Lord needed someone to help preach his message to Adam and the world. "Wait," said the engineer. "The world was created in 6 days from nothing. Do you know what a master engineering feat that must have been to create the whole world into an orgnanized and reasonably civilized place from utter chaos?" "Yes, but who created the chaos?" asked the politician...

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: Double or nothing task bar Dear Webby, I love the "motorcycle pic in today's lettew. I could aslmost handle riding that one. Thanks for sharing that & the wonderful jokes. I need your help. Some how I accidently messed up the task bar. Now it's doubled in height & has icons that are usually hidden showing. I tried dragging it down to reduce the size but it just hides it all together. When I try dragging it back up it comes up double again. I restarted but that didn't help so I shut if down completely for a few minuites but that didn't help either. It's not a big problem just a nusiance. Also can you give me any ideas why so many worms are starting to come up? My Avast is blocking them but it seems like they are trying to get in 2 or more times a day now. Is there anything I can do to keep them from coming up rather than just letting Avast do it's job by blocking them? Thanks for the help & jokes. Sharon Dear Sharon Shut down as many programs as you can, so that the task bar is nearly empty. Then pull down the taskbar very gingerly. Yeah, I know, it is a bit jumpy in XP, and worse in Vista. But that is about all you can do, I haven't noticed any worms trying anything funny, but I am using McAfee. Apparently it murders them quitely in the dark, and doesn't even bother telling me about it. Naturally, a ho'mail address doesn't help. Once you graduate from ho'mail and get a respectable address, the problem will probably disappear anyway. Good Luck! DearWebby
A man walks up the counter and says, "I'll have 2 pounds of Tofu." The man at the counter says, "Oh, you must be from California." The man responds, "How stereotypical! If I had ordered Pepperoni would you think I was Italian?" "No." answers the man at the counter. And besides, pepperoni is more Sicilian than Italian. "If I had ordered Wienerschnitzel would you have thought I was German," he asks. "No." says the man behind the counter, "and besides, Wiener Schnitzel are from Wien, Vienna, the capital of Austria." "Then why," he asks, "would you think I was from California, just because I want 2 pounds of tofu ???" The man looks up from the counter and says, "'Cause you're in a hardware store."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Ask for Makeup Samples I have been feeling a little guilty about spending money on make up with my husband losing his job recently, but I was talking to one of the sales people at my local Ulta and she said do not hesitate to ask for samples and try before I buy. This is a great idea, after all I would not buy a dress without trying it on. Also, take advantage of coupons in your Sunday newspaper for make up items. Another thing to consider expensive is not always better. I do my research and compare products by searching the internet. I have found some great buys for far less money by doing my research first. Be careful where you buy and make sure they have a return policy on make up. Keep your proof of purchase in a envelope until you know the product works for you. Walgreens and CVS are very good about exchanging make up. By Bobbie from Rockwall Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

When a mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid- afternoon, she worried about her five-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks from kindergartenl to home. Deciding to meet her, the mother saw her walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed. Seeing her mother, the little girl ran to her, explaining happily, "All the way home, God's been taking my picture!"

A boy had reached four without giving up the habit of sucking his thumb, though his mother had tried everything from bribery to reasoning to painting it with lemon juice to discourage the habit. Finally she tried threats, warning her son that, "If you don't stop sucking your thumb, your stomach is going to blow up like a balloon." Later that day, walking in the park, mother and son saw a pregnant woman sitting on a bench. The four- year-old considered her gravely for a minute, then said to her, "Uh-oh ... I know what *you've* been doing."
