A clergyman walking down a country lane and sees a young farmer struggling to load manure back onto a cart after it had fallen off. "You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand." "No thanks," said the young man. "My father wouldn't like it." "Don't be silly," the minister said. "Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water." Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him a piece of my mind!" "Well," replied the young farmer, "he's under that load of manure, and if you don't get out of my way right now, you will meet my shovel before you meet him!"
Many, many years ago When I was twenty three, I got married to a widow, Pretty as could be. This widow had a grown-up daughter With flowing hair of red. My father fell in love with her, And soon the two were wed. This made my dad my son-in-law And changed my very life. Now my daughter was my mother, For she was my father's wife. To complicate the matters worse, Although it brought me joy. I soon became the father Of a bouncing baby boy. My little baby then became A brother-in-law to dad. And so became my uncle, Though it made me very sad. For if he was my uncle, Then that also made him brother To the widow's grown-up-daughter Who, of course, was my step-mother. Father's wife then had a son, Who kept them on the run. And he became my grandson, For he was my daughter's son. My wife is now my mother's mother And it makes me blue. Because, although she is my wife, She's my grandma too. If my wife is my grandmother, Then I am her grandchild. And every time I think of it, It simply drives me wild. For now I have become The strangest case you ever saw. As the husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Elizabeth Breeden, 41, Land O'Lakes, Florida Fight over beer LAND O'LAKES At 8:30 Wednesday night, a 53-year-old man sat in a chair, drinking the last beer in the house. His girlfriend wanted it. Elizabeth Breeden, 41, "went off" on him and tried to tear it out of his hand at his home on McKaig Lane in Land O'Lakes, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. He wouldn't let go. Breeden ripped the Natural Light can in half, spilling the lager on him, his chair and the floor, a report states. The boyfriend stood up. Breeden slapped him in the face. Then she kicked him in the groin, authorities said. Breeden told a deputy that her boyfriend kicked her and threw beer on her, which is why she ripped the can in half. She was arrested and charged with domestic battery. This is her 18th arrest since 1999 with charges such as possession of cocaine, shoplifting, fraud and failing to appear in court, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The boyfriend told authorities he started dating Breeden in February and she moved in with him in May. He didn't want to press charges, the report states. As of Thursday, Breeden was being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $1,000 bail. The report said Breeden was "extremely intoxicated" and there were "numerous Natural Light beer cans in the trash can."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Anna RE: What is POP mail? Dear Webby You keep mentioning POP email. Is that pop-ups or what is it? How does that differ from web mail? Anna Dear Anna POP email is the oldfashioned, standard email, with the email program and the mail residing on your computer. For home users the most popular POP email program is Outlook Express, because it is included with Windows. In Industry, commerce and military, the most popular POP programs are Eudora, Pegasus and Outlook. With a POP email program you can sort your mail into different boxes or folders, and sub folders. For example, you can make a mailbox for Utility Bills, and in that one folders for different years. You don't leave any mail on the server, and sort and file, -or delete, all your mail on your computer. With WebMail, you leave the mail on the server, and most web mail programs don't have the ability to sort mail into different folders beyond IN, SENT, TRASH and SPAM. An exception is Squirrel Mail. Web Mail is designed to "peek" at your mail, while away from your own machine. It does not require you to install an email program. You use an email program that sits on the server, - and pull the mail off the server and sort and file it with your POP email program when you get home or to the office. Because the Web Mail program sits on the server, with thousands of people accessing it at the same time, it has to be very simple and basic. And it has a limit. You can only keep a certain amount of email in your WebMail on the server. The proper way to handle it, is to use a good WebMail like Gmail or Squirrel Mail on your own domain, for peeking while away from your main computer, and a full featured POP email program to pull the mail off the server and process it on your computer. Gmail is good enough for a lot of people. They don't file or keep any mail anyway, and so don't have to worry about the limit on stored email. If you keep some emails, and want to file them into appropriate mailboxes or folders, then you also need a POP email program. Outlook Express, since you already paid for it as part of Windows, is a good start. It is a bit buggy and limited, but it is easy and you alreadypaid for it. My own favorite is Eudora. There is a huge list of other POP email programs on Wikipedia How to set Gmail as POP instead of WebMail How to configure a POP program, like your Outlook Express How to check Gmail with Eudora That one is REALLY easy: POP Server name: pop.gmail.com SMTP Server name: smtp.gmail.com and your regular gmail user name and password. So, if your ISP gives you any guff or censors your email, tell them where to stuff it and use Gmail, with whatever email program you are used to! Have FUN! DearWebby
Nine-year-old Aaron came home from the playground with a bloody nose, black eye, and torn clothing. It was obvious he'd been in a bad fight and lost. While his father was patching him up, he asked his son what happened. "Well, Dad," said Aaron, "I challenged Larry to a duel. And, you know, I gave him his choice of weapons." "Uh-huh," said the father, "that seems fair." "I know, but I never thought he'd choose his sister!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift Bag Sustainable, reusable shopping bags, that all stores now offer with their logo, make great and very reasonable gift bags. The grocery bag costs $2.00 or less, decorator gift bags can cost as much as $7.00 to $10.00. The best part is the grocery bag can be reused many more time than paper. The proposed tax on traditional paper or plastic grocery bags makes this gift idea even more economical. Source:My own idea. It started out as a joke with a Good Will bag for my sister's birthday.

Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. For facilities, they had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer, cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the water. One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and pushed. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away. That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why... The dad replied, "Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it, son?" The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth..." The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't IN that cherry tree!!"

After tucking their three-year-old child Sammy in for bed one night, his parents heard sobbing coming from his room. Rushing back in, they found him crying hysterically. He managed to tell them that he had swallowed a penny and he was sure he was going to die. No amount of talking was helping. His father, in an attempt to calm him down, palmed a penny from his pocket and pretended to pull it from Sammy's ear. Sammy was delighted. In a flash, he snatched it from his father's hand, swallowed, and then cheerfully demanded, "Do it again, Dad!"
