We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves to be like other people. --- Arthur Schopenhauer Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what's for lunch. --- Orson Welles
One Sunday a priest announced he was passing out minature crosses made of palm leaves. "Put this cross in the room where your family argues most," he advised. "When you look at it, the cross will remind you that God is watching." When the parishoners were leaving church, a woman walked up to the priest, shook his hand and said, "I'll take five."
When Little Johnny's family moved into their new house, a visiting relative asked him how he liked the new place. "It's terrific," he said. "I have my own room, Billy has his own room, and Betty-Sue has her own room. WE can have fun! But dad is still stuck with mom."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and a Darwin Award goes to Lucas William Stenning, 32, from Bock, Minnesota Too stupid to live Charges were dismissed against Lucas William Stenning, 32, who six weeks earlier had pleaded guilty to knowingly violating registration required of a predatory offender. Charges were dismissed....because Lucas was dead. In a related story, on the afternoon of October 17 in the city of Bock, an injured "hit and run victim" was reported. The pedestrian, found on the side of the road, died in the ambulance at the scene. In a related story, police reported that a 32-year-old man had concocted a scheme to stage an accident in order to obtain prescription drugs. The plan was to jump out of a moving vehicle, become injured, go to the hospital and receive narcotic painkillers. That plan failed when its mastermind, Lucas William Stenning, died at the scene due to head injuries. In other words: Lucas, 32, avoided a serious parole violation because he was deceased due to injuries he caused himself by leaping from a moving vehicle in order to obtain prescription painkillers. DUH!
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Shirley Re: Missing "Safely unplug device" icon Dear Webby, Another question from one of your fans. We do appreciate the computer help as well as all the jokes and wonderful pictures. I've lost the safely remove icon form the bottom of my desktop. How do I get it back? Shiveringly yours, Shirley from up north. Dear Shirley No Gullible Warming up there either? Maybe we are not farting around enough? The disappearing "Safely Unplug" icon is an ancient Windows There is no fix for that bug. However, there is a sneaky way around it. Right-click on the desktop. New Shortcut paste this into the Location line: C:\windows\system32\RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll Next Type in UN-plug OK The proper icon for it, if you want it, is in hotplug.dll in the C:\windows\system32\ directory, however, you can assign any cute and sexy icon to it. After that, to use the Unplugger on those days of the month, when Windows has a headache and won't let you use the icon in the task bar, use the one you made. A fringe benefit is that when you use yours, Windows feels guilty, briefly blushes and makes the icon in the taskbar usable again. Have FUN! DearWebby
A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?" "I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill." The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freeze Whipping Cream In Ice Cube Trays When I buy whipping cream, I buy it on sale. Then I pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen I put the cubes in ziplock bags in the freezer. A cube is about 2 Tablespoons. It's great when you only need a couple tablespoons in a recipe.

A recent bride called her mother one evening in tears. "Oh, Mom, I tried to make Grandmother's meat loaf for dinner tonight, and it's just awful! I followed the recipe exactly, and I know I have the recipe right because it's the one you gave me. But it just didn't come out right, and I'm so upset. I wanted this to be so special for George because he loves meat loaf. What could have gone wrong?" Her mother replied soothingly, "Well, dear, let's go through the recipe. You read it out loud and tell me exactly what you did at each step, and together we'll figure it out." "OK," the bride sniffled. "Well, it starts out, ' Take fifty cents worth of ground beef '..."

An out-of-towner in New York decided to revisit an uptown restaurant he'd enjoyed on a previous trip to the city. Finally catching the eye of an overworked waiter, he said, "You know, it's been over five years since I first came in here." "You'll have to wait your turn, sir," replied the harried waiter. "I can only serve one table at a time."
