If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles. --- Doug Larson I have opinions of my own - strong opinions - but I don't always agree with them. --- George Bush
A six-year-old ran up and down the supermarket aisles shouting frantically, "Marian, Marian!" Finally reunited with his mother, he was chided by her, "You shouldn't call me 'Marian.' I'm your mother, you know." "I know," said the child, "but the store is full of mothers."

One evening a man was very impressed with the meat entree his wife had served. "What did you marinate this in?" he asked. His wife immediately went into a long explanation about how much she loves him and how life wouldn't be the same without him, etc. Eventually, his puzzled expression made her interrupt her answer with a question of her own, "What did you ask me?" She chuckled at his answer and explained, "I thought you asked me if I would marry you again!" As she left the room, he called out, "Well, would you marry me again?" Without hesitation, she said, "Vinegar and barbecue sauce."

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being -- a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Sure I can help you choose which puppy to buy!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and goes to a 40 year old bike rider in Hamilton, Ontario Half naked bike rider arrested HAMILTON - A Hamilton, Ont. man is facing several charges after taking an early-morning motorcycle ride wearing nothing but a T-shirt. Police spotted the nearly-nude 40-year-old going down a city street dotted with shops and homes without a helmet at around 4 a.m. on Sunday. The man tried to get away once he saw an officer, momentarily losing control of his bike before steadying himself and speeding away. Police caught up with the nearly nude man a short time later. He tried to flee on foot, but was arrested close to his home after a brief struggle. Acting Staff Sgt. David Hennick said the man had been drinking, but was not impaired. Despite his nudity, the pants-free rider was not charged with indecent exposure. "No one else was around, it was just the officer and the accused," said Hennick. "It is kind of bizarre," he chuckled. The man faces several charges, including flight from police, dangerous driving and wat caused the police to notice him in the first place, failing to wear a helmet.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Gordon Re: JPG versus PNG Dear Webby Can you please settle the debate here about whether to use PNG or JPG for web sites? Gordon Dear Gordon For pictures, that don't require perfection, for example jokes, cartoons or funny pictures, JPG is good enough, UNLESS you expect to have to edit it in the future. A JPG suffers each time it is saved, edges get blurry and "artifacts" (blemishes) appear. However, if you won't have to touch it ever again, then the good file size compression of JPG is a deciding factor. Today's picture further up is a good example. When quality is important, and editing a possibility in the future, then I prefer PNG. It saves with loss-less compression and does not degrade each time it is saved. A good example of that is Lillemor's rose. It definitely rates PNG, and deserves the little bit of extra file size, that PNG demands. Click on the picture for the Large Version There are other advantages to PNG as well. You can have transparent sections in a PNG, same as with GIF, however, that works only reliably with FireFox, Opera and Safari, but not with all versions of IE. That means, it will depend on your audience, whether you can use transparent sections and fades overlapping text, that is "live" and line-wraps when a browser's width is adjusted. If most of your visitors use various versions of IE, forget the fancy stuff and stick with JPG and GIF. IE handles plain PNG files without transparencies and fades quite well. Just go easy on the fancy stuff. Have FUN! DearWebby
One day a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife: " What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," she replied. "What does it say on your shirt?" He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."
Daily tip from Buy Flannel at Thrift Stores This is the time of the year when the thrift stores have flannel sheets on sale for around a quarter. I just bought a couple more mismatched ones to sew into flannel PJ bottoms and nightgowns. Buying flannel in the sheets is much cheaper than paying the $8 a yard or more at Walmart!

At long last the good-humoured boss was compelled to call Fisk into his office. "It has not escaped my attention," he pointed out, "that every time there's a home game at the stadium you have to take your aunt to the doctor." "You know you're right, sir," exclaimed Fisk. "I didn't realize it. You don't suppose she's faking it, do you?"
