I never vote for anyone; I always vote against. --- W. C. Fields You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence. --- Charles Austin Beard
A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest town, which he planned to visit on his vacation. He wrote, "I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?" An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who said, "I've been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bed clothes, silverware or pictures off the walls. I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel, and if your dog will vouch for you, then you're welcome to stay here, too!"
Marcy knelt in the confessional and said, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned." "What is it you did, Marcy?" "Father, I have committed the sin of vanity. Five times a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am." The priest turned, moved the little curtain in the confessional, took a good look at her, and said, "Marcy, I have good news. That isn't a sin - it's only a mistake."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nicholas Pontillo, 24, of Lake Villa, Illinois Man stole ambulance - and patient A US man has been arrested - after he stole an ambulance with a patient and paramedics still inside it. Nicholas Pontillo, 24, of Lake Villa, Illinois, took the vehicle for a joyride while drunk, according to police. The ambulance had been parked outside the Tyrol Bason skiing and snowboarding area near Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, reports WKOW TV. Pontillo alledgedly slipped into the cab while paramedics were treating a teenage skiier with an injured knee in the back. However, he didn't get very far - the vehicle's emergency brake was on so he ended up driving it around the car park, before eventually being arrested by sheriff's deputies. Dane County emergency management specialist Carrie Meier said the theft attempt may have been thwarted because the paramedics had followed procedure. "They had the emergency brake on. That's one thing we always do for safety reasons," she said. Tyrol Basin general manager Don McKay added: "It is a big deal when someone takes control of an emergency vehicle." Pontillo has been charged with vehicle theft and may also face a charge of drunk driving.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen Re: Active X Dear Webby, You have helped me before in getting larger text, but now I have several more questions to ask you. #1 -I can't open attachments since my computer had to be completely restored. It comes up "install active x" to open. Then my computer says to avoid if possible. Is it safe to install this without doing any harm? #2- I keep getting messages to install explorer 8. Is it safe to do that? #3- Is there an easy way to have the volume icon on the bottom right side of the messages page? It was always there until I had to completely restore everything. Many thanks for any easy help you may be able to give me. Love your site & look forward to it every day. Thanks for making my day better. Eileen Dear Eileen Active X controls are helper objects for Internet Eplorer, similar to training wheels on a kid's bicycle. They can be abused by malware and many people frown upon them. FireFox does not need them. However, if you don't want to upgrade to FireFox, you can get the fixes at Re IE8: Considering the security problems with it, I can't recommend it. You can use the IE8 blocker from my tool box at re Volume control by the clock: Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel. Double Click on the Multimedia icon. In the ‘Playback’ area, make sure that the ‘Show volume control on the taskbar’ box has a checkmark in it. If it does not, put one in it and click on APPLY and then on OK. The icon should now appear on the taskbar near the clock. Have FUN! DearWebby
"Your honor," a defense attorney began, "I have a series of witnesses that can testify that Mr. Johnson was nowhere near the scene of the crime when it occurred." The judge looked at the defense table and said, "This is the third time you've been in this court room this week, and I'm getting sick and tired of hearing your lies." The defendant stood up with a confused expression and said, "Your honor, you must be mistaken. I've never been here in my life." Waving his hand, the judge replied, "I was referring to your lawyer."
Daily tip from Save Money Rounding Checkbook Figures When I write a check, I make sure I write the real amount on the check, but in my checkbook register I round the figure up. When I deposit money into my account, I round the figure down. You will never, see or feel it. In 2 years it adds up big time and them some. By Laura from Spartanburg, S.C.

John brought his new colleague, Peter, home for dinner. As they arrived at the door his wife rushed up, threw her arms around John and kissed him passionately. "My goodness", said Peter, "and how long have you been married?" "22 years", replied John. "You must have a fantastic marriage if your wife greets you like that after all those years." "Don't be fooled! She only does it to make the dog jealous."

Grandma Jones from the valley had never experienced a sick day in her life, so she didn't take it kindly when a bad case of the mulligrubs sent her to the hospital for observation. By the time a pair of husky interns got Grandma tucked into bed, she had managed to complain about everything: the temperature, the lights, the skimpy gown, the food and the mattress - especially, the mattress. Suddenly, Grandma spotted a small plastic item with a button, attached to a cord. "What's that?" she demanded with great suspicion, suspecting it might be one of those sex toys the city folks talked about. "If you need anything in the middle of the night, Grandma," said one of the interns, "just press that button." "What does it do, ring a bell?" she asked. "No, it turns on a light in the hall for the nurse on duty," the intern replied. "A light in the hall?" responded Grandma. "Look, I'm the sick one around here. If the night nurse needs a light on in the hall, she can get up and switch it on herself."
