"The best time to plant a tree . . . was twenty years ago. The second best time, is today." --- Socratex "Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work." --- Laurence J. Peter "You'll find no park or city with a monument to a committee." --- Victoria Pasternak "The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good." --- Samuel Johnson
At a clearance sale, the wife of a federal district court judge found a green tie that was a perfect match for one of her husband's sports jackets. Soon after, while the couple was vacationing at a resort complex to get his mind off a rather complicated cocaine conspiracy case, he noticed a small, round disc sewn into the design of the tie. The judge showed it to a local FBI agent, who was equally suspicious that it might be a 'bug' planted by the conspiracy defendants. The agent sent the device to FBI headquarters In Washington, DC for analysis. Two weeks later, the judge phoned the Washington office to learn the results of their tests. "We're not sure where the disc came from," the FBI told him, "but we discovered that when you press it, it plays 'Jingle Bells.'"
On their 40th wedding anniversary, during the banquet, the husband was asked to give his friends a brief account of the benefits of a marriage of such long duration. One in the crowd said, "Tell us, just what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?" The husband said, "Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, meekness, forbearance, self-restraint, forgiveness . . . and a lot of other disciplines that I wouldn't have needed if I had stayed single."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Miguel Bribiescas, 25, in Elgin, Illinois Spy camera in women's washroom An Elgin man who hid a spy camera in women's bathroom at his workplace, but mostly recorded himself trying to figure out the device, is facing up to three years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to a felony charge. Miguel Bribiescas, 25, of the 1100 block of Hiawatha Drive, admitted to a charge of unauthorized video recording stemming from the July 31 discovery of the pen-size camera in a washroom at Ridgefield Industries, near Crystal Lake. The camera recorded one female co-worker using the washroom before it was discovered by an employee and turned over to police, authorities said. When police began viewing what else was on the camera, the first thing they saw was video of Bribiescas looking into the lens and learning how to operate the device. The charge to which he admitted guilt is a Class 4 felony, punishable by one to three years in prison or probation. Bribiescas' attorney, Mary Baccam, said she believes probation would be fair given her client's lack of criminal history. "He understands that this was inappropriate and he is taking responsibility for his actions," Baccam said. Bribiescas will remain free on a $1,000 bond until his sentencing Jan. 20.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ann Re: Catch-All email program Dear Webby: Alohaa....What fun....but now I'm back - resubscribed and ready to Rock and Roll. On Monday I am changing carriers, email addresses and I don't know what all. My question is is there a way to make sure I don't loose any emails that might go to the old email address after I have let most of my contacts (might forget some) know of the changes.. I don't have a back i ssue to of "Webby" to check your tool box....seems I read about a "grab it" program some time ago that redirected everything. Thanks as always..Ann Dear Ann The easiest way to do that is to use a gmail address, and auto-forward that to the carrier based email address of the day or month. Whenever you change carriers, you simply update the forward setting in gmail. All your contacts continue writing to your same old gmail address.

After meeting with the boss, the head salesperson mustered the troops. "People," he said, "I've just been informed that we're going to be having a fire sale." "A fire sale?" spoke up one agent. "But we sell insurance." "I said a fire sale, and I meant it," he replied rather coldly. "Anyone who doesn't make a sale gets fired."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Watch For Seasonal Clearances For Gifts With a family of 5 kids, there is always a birthday or a holiday around the corner. What we do is always pay attention to the seasons. Seasonally, the store put items such as toys and those kinds of items on sale. We always scope these items out. We have bought $20-30 toys for almost nothing. I am not just talking about toys that were hot last season. This is the time of year when most stores markdown new toys that just came out for the new holiday season. These stores mark them down because they think that they are not going to sell. Then the toys come off clearance when they start to sell again, you have already bought them.

The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef. "Your veal parmigiana was superb," the customer said. "I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there." "Naturally," the chef said. "Over there, they use domestic cheese. Ours is imported."

We stopped for a quick meal and the waiter brought us each a bowl of soup. As the waiter turned away to return to the kitchen, Pa stopped him, calling: "Waiter!" "Yes ,sir, is there something wrong?" "The soup. Taste it," replied Pa. "I beg your pardon, Sir?" "Taste it." "But, Sir, I can assure you that the soup is excellent." "Taste it," Pa persisted. "Sir, the soup was made this morning of the finest ingredients." "Taste it!" The exasperated waiter finally relented. "All right, Sir, I'll taste it." Then after a pause he said, "Where is the spoon?" To which Pa replied triumphantly, "Ah ha ... "
