An American stood in London looking at a large building. A British boy walked by and stood beside the American. "You know," said the American, "in the States we have that kind of building too, but they are four times higher." "Really?" replied the boy. "How sad. That is a mental hospital."
After Sunday service a young couple talked to the pastor about joining the church. He hadn't met the husband before, so he asked what church he was transferring from. The husband looked down at his feet and replied, "I am transferring from the Municipal Golf Course."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stefanie Vargas, 19, and a 13 year old boy in Daytona Beach, Florida Thieves overheard on 911 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say two Florida teenagers are facing charges after 911 dispatchers heard them talking about breaking into cars when one teen's cell phone accidentally called 911 during a heist. Daytona Beach police say 19-year-old Stefanie Vargas and a 13-year-old boy are charged with burglary to a conveyance. Police spokesman Jimmie Flynt says dispatchers listened as the pair discussed what was worth taking while rummaging though a vehicle parked near a Daytona Beach nightclub early Sunday. Officers went to the area and spotted the boy inside a vehicle. A police report says the pair tried to flee in a sport utility vehicle driven by Vargas. The report says both admitted to the robbery. It's unclear how the number got dialed.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sharon Re: Can I use Open Office instead of Works? Dear Webby; I love your letter & the pics you send. Your tech dept has bee a source of great help at time also. Thanks so much. I had to have my pc reformatted just yesterday. Some of my files were saved. But I tried to reinstall my Microsoft Works Suite. Now I cannot bring up a blank word document. You have talked about an "Open Office" program I think. Does that have a similar blank word document? I do a weekly mission prayer list & usually save it & make necessary changes each week. That way I don't have to start over. can you help me? I would appreciate it. Thanks, Sharon Dear Sharon Open Office from definitely has word processing, spreadsheets, and a whole bunch of other stuff included. Basically, it's the same as the $550 Microsoft Office plus a few extras. You can even take a PPS apart, change the smart-ass captions and overlays into suitably motivational ones, or if they are too sappy, tone them down a bit. Industry and Commerce love it, all the way to the bank and home again! Wouldn't you, if you saved $550 each on ten thousand computers? The Governments of most countries, except the US have already switched to Open Office, including their state, county and town offices. So, by all means download and install it. If you are on slow dial-up, ask a neighbor, who has high speed, to download it and burn it onto a CD for you. It IS rather big, after all, it is the equivalent of the big Microsoft Office plus some extras. In Open Office, select Writer, New and start. Set your margins, fonts, headers, footers, etc. and start writing. Save it, print it, send it, whatever. Next time select Writer, Open, choose the file you want to open, and edit it. You'll be used to it in no time flat. It also has a full featured spreadsheet included with the capability to make all kinds of neat scientific looking graphs, do a budget, payroll, the works. Have FUN! DearWebby
Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.

Jill wanted to convince Susan, a continually harried friend, that she needed to find ways to relax. She invited her to dinner and, while she was busy cooking, Susan agreed to watch her videotape on stress management and relaxation techniques. Fifteen minutes later, she came into the kitchen and handed Jill the tape. "It was good," she said, "but I don't need it." "But it's a 70-minute video," Jill replied. "You couldn't have watched the whole thing." "Yes, I did," Susan assured her. "I put it on fast-forward."

One day this old lady walks into the doctors office and is shown into a room. When the doctor comes in and asks what the problem is she answers, "I have awful gas, but it doesn't bother me. You see, it's completely silent, and doesn't smell at all." So the doctor, after examining her thoroughly gives her some pills and tells her to take one everyday and come back in a week. So the old lady comes back, and when the doctor asks if her problem is any better she replies, "Well I don't know what you gave me but now my gas smells terribly!" The doctor replies "Well now that we've got your sinuses cleared up, let's work on your hearing!"'
