Good breeding consists of concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person. --- Mark Twain As you journey through life take a minute every now and then to give a thought for the other fellow. He could be plotting something. --- Hagar the Horrible
A Doctor was explaining to a friend how nature sometimes compensates for a persons deficiencies. "For example," he told him, "If a man is deaf, he may have keener sight, and if a man is blind, he may have a keen sense of smell." "I think I see what you mean," said Paddy, "I've often noticed that if a man has one short leg, then the other one is always longer."
A young mother was visiting a doctor friend and made no attempt to restrain her four-year-old son, who was ransacking an adjoining room. But finally, an extra loud clatter of bottles did prompt her to say, "I hope you don't mind Johnny being in there." "Nah," said the doctor calmly, "That's just poisons in there. They take some time but are quite effective. He'll be quiet soon."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Martin Bartels, 53, Band Teacher's Bad Notes DECEMBER 4-- A veteran Minnesota middle school teacher left sexually suggestive notes in the lockers of two female students and was typing a third lewd letter when school officials confronted him in his classroom, according to police. Martin Bartels, 53, was named Wednesday in a misdemeanor complaint charging him with disorderly conduct in connection with letters found last month by two seventh grade students at Buffalo Community Middle School. According to the District Court criminal complaint, Bartels, a band teacher who has taught for 28 years, wrote in one letter that he wanted to "trace your thighs with my fingertips and make you squirm," adding that he gets "hot and hard just thinking about it." In a note to a second girl, Bartels wrote, "I really, really, really love your legs...I like how you show just enough to make me hard." After the students reported discovering the notes, school administrators reviewed surveillance video and spotted Bartels leaving items in the lockers. Before confronting Bartels, the school's principal walked past his classroom and saw him typing on a school computer. Aided by the school's IT director, the principal was able to remotely access Bartels's computer, which yielded a third letter that was intended for one of the girls he had anonymously already written. That missive commented on the girl's short skirt, her curves, and how "I will have very nice dreams!" Bartels is on paid administrative leave, according to a school district spokesperson.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Alex Re: What is SPF ? Dear Webby: I see at the top of the Dear Webby Humor Letter, that you have a "proper SPF record". What is that all about? Would that help me get my own newsletter to a higher percentage of subscribers? Thanks Alex Dear Alex SPF stands for "Sender Policy Framework". It goes further than the "Listed Sender ID" and is a protocol for identifying and matching the IP numbers. If somebody forged the address of the president, president@whitehose.gov as the sender address, the Listed Sender ID would look OK, even if they sent it from MSN or hotmail. SPF looks at the sending IP number, which is attached AFTER the email leaves the machine of the sender, and checks with the name server to see if that IP number is authorized to send mail claiming to be from whitehose.gov. If it isn't, then the mail is flagged as a forgery. The same applies if somebody forges YOUR address as the sender address, but sends it from an infeted machine somewhere. SPF is a relatively young technology, it exists only since 2003, and not all server side spam control programs use it yet, but it does increase the percentage of mail getting through. Have FUN!

Jon, Brian, and Bernie were in the pub enjoying a few quiet drinks one night, when they decided to get in on the weekly raffle. They bought five $1 tickets each, seeing it was for charity. The following week, when the raffle was drawn, they each won a prize. Jon won the first prize: a whole year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce. Brian won the second prize: six month's supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti. Bernie won the sixth prize: a toilet brush. When they met in the pub a week later, Bernie asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes. "Great," said Jon. "I love spaghetti." "So do I," said Brian. "And how's the toilet brush, Bernie?" "Not so good," Bernie confided. "I'm going to have to go back to paper."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fluffing Indentations in Carpet If you find indentations in your carpet after moving a piece of furniture, get a clean dish cloth or face cloth and put it in hot water and then wring it out. Place the cloth in the microwave and get it as hot as you want, about 3 minutes. Take the cloth very carefully and put in a coffee cup. Place the cup over the indentation and let it sit for a few minutes. The steam will puff up the fiber in the carpet and the indentation will be gone.

My grandfather worked in a blacksmith shop when he was a boy, and he used to tell me, when he was a little boy myself, how he had toughened himself up so he could stand the rigors of blacksmithing. One story was how he had developed his arm and shoulder muscles. He said he would stand outside behind the house and, with a 5 pound potato sack in each hand, extend his arms straigt out to his sides and hold them there as long as he could. After awhile he tried 10 pound potato sacks, then 50 pound potato sacks and finally he got to where he could lift a 100 pound potato sack in each hand and hold his arms straight out for more than a full minute! Next, he started putting potatoes in the sacks.

Late one night in the capitol city a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs. "Give me your money," he demanded. Indignant, the affluent man replied, "You can't do this - I'm a US Congressman!" "In that case," replied the robber, "give me MY money!"
