Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. --- Oscar Wilde
A 3-year-old went with his dad to see a litter of kittens. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother that there were two boy kittens and two girl kittens. "How did you know?" his mother asked. "Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on the bottom."
An English soldier, an American solider and a Russian soldier found themselves sharing a table in a Bosnian restaurant, and the conver sation turned towards how well fed each of them was. "In the Russian army we have 2000 calories of food a day" said the Russian. "Well", said the Englishman, "In the British army we are given 4000 calories of food a day." "That's nothing", said the American, "in the US army we have 8000 calories of food a day". At this the Russian got very annoyed. "Nonsense", he said, "how could one man eat that much cabbage!!!."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 42-year-old drunk in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin Drunk driver caught out by footprints in snow A US man who claimed his car had been stolen after he crashed it into a snow drift was arrested after police followed his footsteps back to the bar where he'd been drinking. The 42-year-old, of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, now faces up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine is he is convicted with that police said was his fifth drink driving charge. He rang police at 2.30am to say his car had been stolen from the town's Tapper's Bar where he had been drinking, reports the Sheboygan Press. Police quickly discovered the car crashed into a snow bank about half a mile away from the bar - and then found footprints in the snow matching the man's boots leading back to the bar. When questioned by police, the man, who later failed a field sobriety test, admitted that he had been driving the vehicle and lost control of it before crashing into the snow bank.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Clyde Re: PPSX files Dear Webby, Love your letters, especially the picture and tech sections. I just got a .ppsx file which would not open with my older version of Microsoft Power Point Viewer or with Open Office. Is this a new format which requires a new viewer? Clyde Dear Clyde Yes, it is a new type. Instead of using standard formats that everybody can use, like Open Office does, Microsoft keeps coming up with new and different formats that require yet another different type of viewer. I don't play that stupid game and just tell the sender to use a standard format. Usually it's just time wasting crap anyway. We got to stand up for ourselves, otherwise every silly dingbat will come out with yet another new and incompatible format. If you really think it is worth wasting time on, you can go to my Tool Box and download the current PowerPoint Viewer. According to Microsoft, it should open PPSX files. Have FUN! DearWebby
MacTavish's little boy was being questioned by the teacher during an arithmetic lesson. "If you had five pounds," said the teacher, "and I asked you for the loan of three pounds, how many would you have left?" "Five," said young MacTavish firmly. "Five?" the teacher said "How do you make it five?" "Well," replied young MacTavish "You can ask for a loan of three pounds, but that doesn't mean you will get it."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reuse Packing Paper for Crafts Now that many places are using recycled or green packing materials, we get lot of brown scrunched paper in the boxes when we order items online. If you smooth out that paper, it's often 4-6 feet long and 2-3 feet wide - absolutely perfect for kids to use to color, trace their bodies, draw pirate maps, or do various other fun crafty things with. You can also ask newspapers for their discarded end rolls of newsprint. By Emily from RI Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

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 lady asked. "The glaciers," said the guide in a weary voice, "have gone back for more rocks."

Two friends, one an optimist and the other a pessimist, could never quite agree on any topic of discussion. One day the optimist decided he had found a good way to pull his friend out of his continual pessimistic thinking. The optimist owned a hunting dog that could walk on water. His plan? Take the pessimist and the dog out duck hunting in a boat. They got out into the middle of the lake, and the optimist brought down a duck. The dog immediately walked out across the water, retrieved the duck, and walked back to the boat. The optimist looked at his pessimistic friend and said, "What do you think about that?" The pessimist replied, "That dog can't swim, can he?" Luckily the pessimist was wearing a life jacket, when he got tossed into the icy water and had to swim all the way back to shore..
