"You know your children have grown up when they stop asking you where they came from and refuse to tell you where they are going." --- Socratex
One evening a preschooler, Krystal, and her parents were sitting on the couch chatting. Krystal asked, " Daddy, are you the boss of the house?" Her father proudly replied, "Yes, I am the boss of the house." But Krystal quickly burst his bubble when she added, "Did Mommy tell you that you can play boss tonight, Daddy?"
A man was telling his neighbor, "I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art and the best I could find." "Really," answered the neighbor. "What kind is it?" "Twelve thirty."
Careful with those Christmas Lights!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Train buffs go loco Train buffs are facing jail after building their own ramshackle locomotive and taking it on the public rail network. The six-seater train - made out of garden furniture and salvaged train parts - was powered by an electric motor ( Looks like a gasoline engine to me! ) and even had its own refreshments car in the shape of a crate of beer. Police in Erfut, Germany, were alerted after residents of properties adjoining the railway spotted the unorthodox vehicle - and were aware that there should have been no traffic running. Police however had to call in a helicopter to find and follow the makeshift train as the police cars could not follow it along the tracks. The helicopter pilot was able to radio ahead to other officers who set up a makeshift barrier at a station to stop it. Railway bosses had been asked to suspend all services to avoid a collision although the train buffs had chosen to have their drive when there had been no trains scheduled. "It seems to be one of those mad pub ideas that actually happened. They didn't seem to realise they could have caused a serious accident if they'd got anywhere near a real train," said one officer, who did not seem to realize that trains there run on a very strict schedule, with two hour gaps in between trains. Six men, who were arrested on the unauthorised vehicle, are currently facing public safety charges.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jen Re: SP3 Panic Dear Webby, I understand that Windows is going to end support for SP2 in July of 2010. It is being recommended to add SP3 in order to continue getting updates and security fixes. What's your recommendation? Thanks, Jen Merry Christmas!!!! Dear Jen My recommendation is to NOT risk messing up your computer this close to Christmas. SP3 works OK on 60% of all Windows computers, and messes up on 40%.. If it turns out that you dearly miss the dedicated and useful support by Microsoft after next July, then you can still do the gamble then. Until then, don't worry about it. Have FUN! DearWebby
Two Yuppettes were shopping. When they started to discuss their home lives, one said, "Seems like all Alfred and I do anymore is fight. I've been so upset, I've lost 20 pounds." "Why don't you just leave him then?" asked her friend. "Oh! Not yet." the first replied, "I'd like to lose at least another fifteen pounds first."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Pillow Shams On Your Sofa Use pretty pillow sham covers as pillows on your sofa or as throw cushions! I see these all the time at Goodwill for a buck or two, and I decided to make use of them. My kids like to use them as floor pillows, as well. Plus if your sofa is kind of tired looking you can add a couple and give it a whole new look. By Carol from Landisville, PA For those, who commute to work without the benefit of Gullible Warming, cut some white 3/16" packing foam to the size of the sham, and stuff 3-4 layers of it into the sham. Ideally, use the glossy pearl white foam, that has a waxy feel to it, and in between layers use the very thin and flimsy open cell foam. That keeps the layers from shifting, plus either static electricity or some wonderous magic, warms up the sham as soon as you sit on it. Princess Auto used to sell those in the 70's as "Self Heating Seat Pads", and I used them until I left the Yukon in 2000. At -50 a soft and warm sham instead of a rock-hard frozen seat makes a world of difference! If you use a sham that fits into your briefcase, you can keep it even warmer for the trip home. Have FUN!

A couple trying to break into society hosted a dinner party. As the guests were enjoying their soup, the maid called the hostess from the table. The maid informed her that the wine had been enjoyed more than anticipated and a lot earlier than planned. So she jumped in the car and raced to the liquor store to get more and was in such a hurry on the way back that when she drove over the edge of the curb at the entrance or something near it, that she didn't even take the time to check what it was. Just before the maid was supposed to serve the main course, the maid again called the hostess to the kitchen. This time she told her that some time in the afternoon the cat had must have climbed on the kitchen table and eaten a large portion of the salmon's midsection. The hostess decided to fill the eaten portion with some canned salmon and other camouflage. As the guests were enjoying the fish, the maid called the hostess into the kitchen again, and announced while wringing her hands, "Madam, the cat is dead." The hostess and her husband informed the guests and suggested it might be best if everyone went to the hospital and had their stomachs pumped. Returning home, the couple asked the maid where she had put the cat. "It is still out on the driveway, where you ran over it on the way back from the liquor store."
