"Ask a question and you're a fool for three minutes; do not ask a question and you're a fool for the rest of your life." --- Chinese Proverb
Two Venusians are walking down the street. One Venusian finds a little mirror, looks in it, again, and again. Puzzled, she says to the other one, "I just know I've seen this face before!" "Give it to me", says the other Venusian. She looks in the mirror and says, "Of course, you silly! It's me!!"
The fourth-grade teacher had to leave the room for a few minutes. When she returned, she found the children in perfect order. Everybody was sitting absolutely quiet. She was shocked and stunned and said, "I've never seen anything like it before. This is wonderful. But, please tell me, what came over all of you? Why are you so well behaved and quiet?" Finally, after much urging, spoke up and said, "Well, one time you said that if you ever came back and found us quiet, you would drop dead."
Two good Catholic boys passed an Episcopalian minister. At the sight of the reversed collar, one of them automatically said, "Hello, Father." The other boy elbowed him in the ribs. "He's no father, you dummy," said the second youth, "He's married and got three kids!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kristine A. Pflughaupt, 46, of Marion, Iowa Mail Carrier found Drunk, Inside a Residence By Becky Ogann Story Updated: Nov 17, 2009 at 2:40 PM CST MARION — Police arrested a mail carrier after she was found drunk inside a residence while on the job in Marion earlier this month, authorities said Tuesday. Kristine A. Pflughaupt, 46, of Marion, was charged with public intoxication Nov. 3 after she was found sitting on the kitchen floor of a house at 260 Sixth Avenue, eating leftover noodles from Marie O’Kelly’s refrigerator. Marion police Lt. Steve Etzel said Pflughaupt entered the home through an unlocked front door. She apparently was intoxicated when she was dropped off to complete her route, he said. “She was in uniform and had mail and a mail-carrying bag with her,” Etzel said. O’Kelly, 95, said she was watching TV in another room when she heard a noise. She thought her daughter had arrived, but became suspicious when no one came to greet her. When she went to check, O’Kelly said she found Pflughaupt sitting on her kitchen floor. She was using her hands to eat leftover noodles, and they were running down Pflughaupt’s shirt. O’Kelly didn’t recognize her as the mail carrier. “I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ and she didn’t answer me,” O’Kelly said. “She just kept eating those noodles.” Police and firefighters arrived around 4:45 p.m. and Pflughaupt was arrested. Preliminary breath tests showed her blood alcohol content to be .281, police said. Pflughaupt, a 17-year employee of the U.S. Postal Service, was taken to the Linn County Jail. Marion Postmaster Rick Leyendecker said Pflughaupt is currently on unpaid leave. The incident happened his second day as Postmaster. Any disciplinary action will be determined after police finish their criminal investigation, Leyendecker said. “I just have to let the investigation run its course,” Leyendecker said. O’Kelly said she was shook up, but was not injured in the incident. “It was a shocker, is what it was,” O’Kelly said. According to online court records, Pflughaupt has three convictions for operating while intoxicated, including one just three months ago. Her prison sentence was suspended in that incident.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Adrianne Re: Skype on dial-up Dear Webby I know you mentioned Skype many times over the last ten years that I have been subcribed. My granddaughter wants me to install it so that we can talk to her and her mother, but I have only slow dial-up. Would it still work? And can you really call regular phones with it? Adrianne Dear Adrianne Yes, sure. The voice quality on dial-up is of course not as good as on a high speed connection, but still a bit better than landline or cell phone. When my DSL is down, like it was the second half of October, I use dial-up, and still call my dad over in Europe every night, when it is his breakfast time. I have not missed a night since I got Skype, except in April, when he comes over here to travel around the deserts with me. And yes, you definitely can call regular phones and cell phones with Skype. The voice quality of course is limited by the phone, that the other side uses. Calling a regular phone is about a penny per minute anywhere in the world. Calling another skype user is totally free. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Save Egg Shells for Planting in Spring When using eggs in my cooking, I try to break the shells near one end. The smaller piece of broken shell goes into the compost bowl, the larger part of the shell I put back into the empty egg carton and save for spring when I fill the shells with soil and start my seedlings in them. They are lightweight and easy to move around. When the plants have developed roots and are ready to transplant into the ground you just lift them shell and all and plant them in the garden. The egg shell will fertilize and nourish the plant. It will be off to a good start! By Deborah from Terre Hill, PA If you have a choice of eggs, that come in paper-machee trays or boxes instead of plastic, those trays work very well too for sprouting, and compost cleanly after you cut them into mini pots and plant them.

"I'm so worried," the nervous patient said as the nurse plumped up his pillows. "Last week, I read about a man who was in the hospital because of heart trouble and he died of malaria." "Relax" the nurse said, smiling. "This is a first-rate hospital. When we treat someone for heart trouble, he dies of heart trouble."
