A painting in a museum hears more ridiculous opinions than anything else in the world. --- Edmond de Goncourt To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle. --- George Orwell
Miss Prissy was going over Melvin's records with his anxious parents. On one page was the statement, "Melvin used fowl language today." Mr. Messpot, hoping to put the teacher in a bad light, snickered, "Ha! You spelled foul wrong." Miss Prussy corrected, "No, I meant F-O-W-L. Your precious child called me a 'dumb cluck' ."
Son: Why is Father singing to the baby so much tonight? Mother: He is trying to sing her asleep. Son: Well, If I were her, I'd pretend I was asleep.

Click on Settings Make Filter In the filter, you can use the FROM field and put in or the SUBJECT field. The subject line always starts with Humor: and has since 1994, to make it easy to automatically filter it into a humor mailbox. In the early days, spam was not a problem, but neat sorting was high on people's priority list. For the Action select "Never send it to spam" A lot of people use Gmail for filtering their mail. It does an excellent job on that, and keeps a searchable archive of the spam. Just make sure the spam doesn't get you over the 73 GB limit. Otherwise ALL mail stops. Set Gmail to forward the (filtered) mail to a new ISP based address, and tell your ISP to exclude it from any and all filtering. Have FUN! DearWebby
I asked Mom if I was a gifted child... She told me that they certainly wouldn't have paid for me.
Daily tip from Store Sewing Patterns in Ziplock Bags I do a lot of sewing, using the same patterns over and over. After a while, I've lost pieces, which drives me nuts! I finally figured how to solve the problem. After I cut a pattern apart, I put it in a ziploc bag, with it's envelope. I don't have to worry about pieces slipping out if it's turned upside down, and it's easy to store. Won't get torn or wet.

A fellow who's just reached his 150th birthday was giving a press conference to the assembled media. "Excuse me, sir," one of the reporters said, "but how did you come to live to 150? "It's actually quite simple," the old fellow replied. "I just never argue." "That's impossible," the reporter responded. "There must be something else, like diet, or meditation, or something. Just not arguing won't keep you alive for 150 years!" The old fellow shrugged his shoulders and said: "Hmmm, could be you're right."
