I got a few more pages of the 2010 Cactus Rally uploaded. Up to day 9 so far. My favorite picture is Day 9 #29 with my dad in the bottom right hand corner gleefully snapping a picture of something interesting he spotted.

An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough. "Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up. Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "They're not getting divorced if I have anything to do about it," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "They're coming for our anniversary and even paying their own fares...Now what do we tell them for Thanksgiving ?"
The doctor noted with astonishment a tattoo of a bluebird on the shoulder of his 70 year old patient, who was in his office for her annual check up. She told him that she had wanted one her whole life, so she and her 16 year old grandson decided that they would get birthday tattoos together. The doctor inquired why she had not got one sooner. "Until now," she replied, "I was afraid of what my mother would say."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kenneth Parkerson,28 in Coral Springs, Florida Picked wrong house CORAL SPRINGS By the time Kenneth Parkerson told a nurse he made a mistake, the evidence was already on his face. Parkerson, 28, was arrested Wednesday night after he allegedly sneaked into the screened patio of a home, carrying a video camera, police said. The homeowner's wife saw him and yelled for her husband, Pembroke Pines firefighter Ireneusz Fajkis, according to the police report. Fajkis chased Parkerson onto his front lawn and tackled him to the ground, according to the police report. Parkerson, of Coral Springs, was taken to Coral Springs Medical Center, where he talked to a nurse treating his wounds. "I picked the wrong house," he reportedly said, "because a UFC [mixed martial arts] fighter lived there and beat me up." Parkerson was arrested on one count of burglary, one count of video voyeurism, one count of marijuana possession and one count of tampering with evidence, for allegedly trying to destroy the camera while he was being chased. If you want to see his bruised and lumpy face, after it had been cleaned up by the nurse, it is at Sun-Sentinel
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Nancy re: IE opens in tiny window HELP...........Mr Genius Guy When I click on a link, it no longer opens in a screen size. Just a little tiny box that I have to click on to enlarge. How can I fix this, it is taking up way toooooo much of my time. Thank you Nancy Dear Nancy That is an old Internet Explorer bug. Theoretically, Internet Explorer will remember the window size of when it closed last time, but sometimes it messes up and acts as if you had resized a window to a ridiculously small size before closing, and then decides that is your favorite window size. That bug is one of the reasons why so many people upgraded to FireFox, Opera or Chrome. However, there IS a way to tell Internet Explorer that the dumb idea of a stamp size window is NOT your preference. Close all instances of Internet Explorer that are currently open, except for one. Right click a link on the web page and select Open in new window. CLOSE the first instance of the browser that was originally open using the X in the top corner. Resize the tiny new window by dragging the top and sides until it is the size that you prefer. Hold down the CTRL key and click the X in the top corner. The next time you open your browser, the window should again appear in a civilized size. For a while anyway. That bug will probably re-surface in a few months, but then you will know how to fix it. You can always switch to FireFox. Nobody has ever reported a similar problem in FireFox. Have FUN! DearWebby

During a sermon a mother with a fidgety seven-year-old boy told me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet. "About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, 'If you don't be quiet, the Pastor is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again!' "It worked."

"I play golf in the low 80's," the little old man was telling one of the young boys at the club. "Wow," said the young man, "that's pretty impressive." "Not really," said the little old man. "Any hotter and I'd probably have a stroke."
