With most men, unbelief in one thing springs from blind belief in another. --- Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then--we elected them. --- Lily Tomlin
At an annual Bosses Night dinner for Helena, Montana, lawyers, sponsored by legal secretaries, it was time to announce the Boss of the Year. The master of ceremonies began: "First of all, our winner is a graduate of the University of Montana. So that already eliminates some of you as candidates." "Our winner also is a partner in a downtown Helena law firm. That eliminates some more of you. "Our nominee is honest, upright, dedicated..." A voice from the audience cut in: "Well, there go the rest of us!"
A sixth grade class is doing some spelling drills. The teacher asks Tommy if he can spell 'before.' He stands up and says, "Before, B-E-P-H-O-R." The teacher says, "No, that's wrong. Can anyone else spell before?" Another little boy stands up and says, "Before, B-E-F-O-O-R." Again the teacher says, "No, that's wrong." Then the teacher asks, "Little Johnny, can you spell 'before'?" Little Johnny stands up and says, "Before, B-E-F-O-R-E." "Excellent Johnny, now can you use it in a sentence?" Little Johnny says, "That's easy. Two plus two be fore."
There was this little guy sitting in a bar, drinking, minding his own business when all of a sudden this great big dude comes in and --WHACK!!-- he knocks him off the bar stool and says, "That was a karate chop from Korea." The little guy thinks "GEEZ" but he gets back up on the stool and starts drinking again when all of a sudden --WHACK-- the big dude knocks him down AGAIN and says, "That was a judo chop from Japan." So the little guy has had enough of this so he leaves and is gone for an hour or so and when comes back. --WHACK!!!"-- He knocks the big dude off his stool and out cold!!! The little guy looks at the bartender and says, "When he comes to himself, tell him that was ....... a pipe wrench from Snap-On..

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Swiss court fines speeding millionaire $290,000 By The Associated Press ST. GALLEN, Switzerland (AP) - A Swiss court has slapped a wealthy speeder with a chalet-sized fine - a full $290,000. Judges at the cantonal court in St. Gallen, in eastern Switzerland, based the record-breaking fine on the speeder's estimated wealth of over $20 million. A statement on the court's Web site says the driver - a repeat offender - drove up to 35 miles an hour (57 kilometers an hour) faster than the 50-mile-an-hour (80-kilometer-an-hour) in-town limit. Court clerk Heidi Baumann-Becker said Thursday the unidentified driver can appeal the decision, handed down in November, to the Swiss supreme court. (they usually just laugh at appealing speeders and charge them Supreme Court fees.) The Blick daily newspaper in Zurich reported the fine was more than twice the previous Swiss record of about $107,000. ----- I grew up just across the Rhine from there, in Austria, and everybody there knows that traffic violation fines are based on the law breaker's estimated wealth. If you rent or lease an expensive car, they will fine you, as if you owned it. Keep that firmly in mind if you ever go there and rent a car.

A lady on her first visit to Yellowstone National Park said to her guide, "Look at all those big rocks. Wherever did they come from?" "The glaciers brought them down," said the guide. "But where are the glaciers?" "The glaciers," said the guide in a weary voice, "have gone back for more rocks."
Daily tip from Be Ready For A Nighttime Power Outage We just had an hour long power outage (unexpected as it is 9 pm on a cold winter night). I learned three things tonight that I want to share (common sense but we all know that is not the way it works, LOL) 1. Make sure you KNOW where the candles ARE! it is easy to think "oh sure, I know exactly where they are" (want to bet?) and, during the day or when there is power by flipping the switch, it is easy to find them. It is not so easy when there are no lights (and damn it is BLACK) in here! 2. Make sure if you have pets (cats especially) that candles are not a novelty when they are lit. I had 2 out of three tonight who were determined that they had to stick their noses into the flame (or thought that they should) 3. In a pinch, a small tin can makes a good candle snuffer (something else I DO HAVE, but couldn't find it) Have a good night. By Cinnamon from Williams Lake, BC In most households, flashlights are devices for holding dead batteries. Don't fall for those shaker flashlights, unless you have spastic kids. They are quite a nuissance, and by the time you have used them long enough to find candles, you are ready to toss them for good. You can buy rechargeable flashlights that sit in the charger, always ready to use. As for candles, the only ones that are really safe and useful are "Tea Candles", the little candles in aluminum cupcake liners, used by better restaurants to keep tear or food hot. They are dirt cheap. At a restaurant supply store or over the net you can usually get a bag of 100 for around $20. If you have frequent power outages, then it is a good idea to make a sconce (wall bracket). Just get a rectangular cookie or shortbread tin with a hinged lid and a piece of scrap wood or cardboard as a spacer between it and the wall, so that the lid can open. Attach it in a horizontal position, with the lid on top, and the hinge towards the wall. Keep your tea lights and a lighter in the tin. When needed, open the lid as a reflector and light multiplier, and light one or more of the tea lites. You will be surprised how much good and usable light you get! Have FUN!

"Anni caught a Peeping Tom last night, and she'd have killed him if we hadn't stopped her," said Sam. "He must have made her very angry, peeking at her, huh?" replied his friend. "No, that's not what made her the maddest," Sam chuckled. "It's not?" asked the friend. "No, she got mad when he reached in the window and closed the curtains!"

From Cindy Sometimes, when I'm in class, I dream that I'm on a tropical island, with a dozen or more scantily clad females beside me, sitting under a huge palm tree, with some soft gentle music being played on some traditional wood instruments of that region, and a cool gentle breeze caressing my tanned body. I do all this while trying to forget I'm in a classroom. Of course, it would be so much easier without everyone yelling at me to wake up and teach.
