"It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help." --- Judith Martin
Thanks to Donny for this: WE are in trouble... The population of this country is 300 million. 160 million are retired. That leaves 140 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school. Which leaves 55 million to do the work. Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government. Leaving 20 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama Bin-Laden. Which leaves 17.2 million to do the work. Take from that total the 15.8 million people who work for state and city Governments. And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals. Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And there you are, Sitting on your ass, At your computer, reading jokes!
"You seem to have more than average intelligence for a man of your background," sneered the lawyer at a witness on the stand. "If I wasn't under oath, I'd return the compliment," replied the witness.
A doctor has come to see one of his patients in a hospital. The patient has had major surgery to both of his hands. "Doctor," says the man excitedly and dramatically holds up his heavily bandaged hands. "The nurse told me that I will be able to play the piano when these bandages come off?" "I don't see why not," replies the doctor. "Hmmm, then I better start learning to read sheet music!"
Yukon memories!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kiara Medlock, 10, Ozark, Arkansas Teen assaults cop and needed to be tasered NOVEMBER 18--An Arkansas cop tasered an unruly 10-year-old girl after her mother called police to report that the child was crying, screaming, and refusing to go to bed. The tased girl, According to the Ozark Police Department report, when Officer Dustin Bradshaw arrived at the residence last Thursday, he found the girl "screaming, kicking, and resisting every time her mother tried to touch her." Bradshaw added that, "Her mother told me to tase her if I needed to." After Kiara continued to refuse her mother's instructions, the cop concluded that "there was not going to be a peaceful resolution of the issue." Bradshaw warned the girl that she was "going to jail," but the brat continued kicking and crying and resisted his attempt to handcuff her. During the fight, Kiara "struck me with her legs and feet in the groin, reported Bradshaw, who countered with a brief "stun to her back" with his Taser. The child, not surprisingly, "stopped resisting and was placed into handcuffs. However, she refused to walk on her own and I had to carry her to my police car." Kiara was then transported to a youth shelter. ------------ Sounds like that brat will need to get tased a few more times before she starts acting her age.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Di Re: Vista not able to handle video on Skype Dear Webby Hi Webby: Since you are talking Skype - I have a question about using it for my webcam. I have been talking to my granddaughter in NC and I am in FL. I see and hear her fine for a few minutes, then my screen freezes the image of her, although we can still hear each other. She can still see me just fine. When we call each other back - it is fine again for a few minutes and then the same thing happens again. I am using a regular laptop with 3G of ram and she is using a mini notebook with the maximum ram required. Do you have any ideas, so I can start troubleshooting? Is it her problem or mine? I am running Vista and my hard drive is almost full. Thanks, Di Dear Di Well, that would 'splain things. Upgrading to XP would most definitely help. If you don't want to do that, add the 4th GB of RAM that Vista needs, get an external USB hard drive or second internal hard drive give the C: drive about 40% free space increase the virtual memory to at least twice the amount of RAM run DisKeeper to defrag and optimize your hard drives. That won't make it as fast and reliable as XP, but programs won't get stuck or partially stuck as often. Another solution is to buy an old XP machine ( with the XP CD ! ) at a yard sale, format and re-install XP, and use that for your communications and anything that requires speed and power. Have FUN!

I boarded the train and took my seat. The seat next to me was empty, but not for long. A young mother boarded with her 5-year-old daughter and Mom sat down in the seat beside me. I offered my seat to the little girl but Mom said no, she'd sit the young one on her lap. So here I am holding my roses, now with a little lady straining to see what I was holding. "What ya got, mister?" she asked. (Mom is getting a bit flustered and tells her to mind her business.) I leaned the "package" over a bit and she looks and says loudly, "Ohhhh, ROSES!, who are they for?" (Now, Mom is embarrassed and tapping her on the rear telling her to sit down.) I said, "they're for my girlfriend". The little 5 year old said, again with a loud voice, "WOW, pretty RED ones, and a LOT of them, too! Man, you really must have f****d up!" Her mother turned as red as the roses, but all the other passengers bust a gut laughing.
Daily tip from Subtract Savings First It seems the more I made the more I spent, until I decided to try a special way to save money. Each month, when I get paid, I subtract an amount of money that I am going to try to save. Once it is subtracted in my register, it seems like it is not there but it really is should a serious emergency arise. I try to make it an amount that is pushing my saving limit. At the end of the month, I have to decide what to do with it. I either save it or purchase something that is really needed, such as tires. In times past, I would just go out and charge tires on my credit card and hope that I could pay it off at the end of the month. This way, with a little patience, I will have the money in hand before I buy tires. By Paula from GA Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

An Irishman's wife calls the doctor, stating that her husband has taken ill. The doctor asks if she had taken his temperature; she replied that she hadn't but would and then call back. When she hadn't called within a half hour, the doctor called and asked her what had happened. She said, "Well, I didn't have a thermometer, so I put a barometer on his chest and it said dry, so I gave him a pint of beer and he went off to work!"

The Burgess Hill Town Council in the UK, in response to a worker's complaint that sunlight coming through the window caused a glare on her computer screen, has already had three meetings, six months of discussion, contact with several contractors, produced a six page report, worked up five potential alternatives, their favorite being the spending of up to $10,000 to put computer controlled screens on the outside of the window or coat the window with reflective film, but whose Town Clerk solved the problem by moving the desk away from the window, but had forgotten to tell them.
