An 87 year-old man went to the doctor to get a physical. A few years later, the doctor saw the man walking down the street with a gorgeous young lady on his arm. He stopped to talk to him: "You're really doing great, aren't you?" The man replied, "Just doing what you said doctor, "Get a hot mama and be cheerful." The doctor said, "I didn't say that! I said 'you've got a heart murmur.Be careful'."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to 4 klutzy thieves in Bennington, Vermont. Thanks to Tom for sending this info: One way to infamy Four people were arrested over the weekend after trying to take a 100 percent stake in a large chili pepper. They were trying to steal the green and red chili pepper logo from the roof of a Chili's restaurant in Bennington, Vermont. And that is our last word in business today: hot property. The heist involved 470 feet of extension cord. They ran it from an outlet at the Home Depot across four lanes of traffic and up to the roof of the restaurant. One of the thieves was using an electric drill to try and remove the logo from the roof of the restaurant, but the alarm system went off - who knew that the chili pepper would be alarmed - went off around 4:30 in the morning alerting police. One suspect allegedly wanted to give a friend that red hot chili pepper. They are in jail now.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Anna Re: Are X10 cameras any good? Dear Webby How good are those wireless X10 cameras? I saw an ad that had six cameras with turn and tilt and an interface to TV, PC and the Internet for about $300. Could they be used for nature photography? And how good are their low light cameras? Anna Dear Anna Those cameras are definitely not for Big Screen movies. They are security grade cameras, they show what is going on and people are recognizable and identifyable. Naturally, at that price and size and wireless technology, the pictures are rather coarse. The low light zoom camera is totally unbelievable. Moonlight or a quarter mile away street light makes the scene look like daylight. Again, picture quality is not suitable for high gloss fashion magazines, but you can definitely recognize and identify people, or see what kind of mischief the kids are up to out in the dark yard, while you are doing your emails. Nature photographers love them, because they are wireless, easy to set up, -just lay them on a rock or tree branch-, and use them to observe and plan, or to see when to hit the remote control for their big $5000 camera, The big $5000 camera is not limited by what can be transmitted in real time. It stores the high res pictures on a 16 GB memory chip in the camera. As long as you use them the way they were intended to be used, you will be quite impressed. Have FUN! DearWebby
A Sunday School teacher asked her class, "Does anyone know what we mean by sins of omission?" A small girl replied, "Aren't those the sins we should have committed, but didn't?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Apartment Hunting Tips When I search for a new apartment I keep the following things I want in mind: 1. Opt for no corner units as you are heating and cooling 2 walls instead of one and there is no wind-break on corner units. Try choosing a unit in the middle of the building. 2. Most apartments only have windows, patio doors on one side of the unit (unless of course you choose a corner unit); so by choosing a unit that does not face the West and is in the middle of the building (especially in the summer) you do not get the direct heat of the afternoon sun; therefore helping save on your A/C (electric) bill.

While a friend and I were visiting Annapolis, we noticed several students on their hands and knees assessing the courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand. "What are they doing?" I asked our tour guide. "Each year," he replied with a grin, "The upperclassmen ask the freshmen how many bricks it took to finish paving this courtyard." "So what's the answer?" my friend asked him when we were out of earshot of the freshmen. The guide replied, "One."
