Good Morning,  !

Got an email today from John B, who claimed that the story 
about health care exemptions was trash circulated by Obama haters.

Yes, it sure is naughty of them to point to 
HR3962 page 300 Affordable Health Care Act and page 107
That is supposed to be secret, and even Senators don't snoop
in there!

He also mentioned, that he had tried last week to send a donation,
but that PayPal refused.
So I quickly tried myself, hit the DONATE button near the bottom 
of the Humor Letter, and sent the minimum amount that PayPal
allows, $1 from my right pocket to my left one. 
It worked just fine, as long as one stays above one dollar.

However, I noticed a rather scary sight there:
The exchange rate for this purchase is 1 USD = 0.980392CAD

The US $ had fallen below the Canadian $
At the begin of the heating season, that is not good at all!

In case that turns into a trend, you might want to top off your 
heating fuel before the price goes up!

Have FUN!

My mom has a lead foot, so I was not surprised when a state trooper pulled us over as we were speeding through Georgia. Hoping to get off with a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when the trooper walked up to the car. "I have never been stopped like this before," she said to the officer. "What do they usually do, ma'am," he asked, "shoot the tires out?"
Little Willie asked his mother: "Mamma, don't soldiers ever go to heaven?" "Of course they do!" protested his mother. "What makes you ask?" "There are so many soldiers with beards but I never saw any pictures of angels with beards." "Oh, that's because most men who go to Heaven get there by a close shave."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Joshua Getchell, 24, in Sabbatus, Maine drug charges start with seat-belt infraction SABATTUS What started as a possible seat-belt violation turned into a chase and ended with drug charges Monday for a local man. Joshua Getchell, 24, of 143 Dube Drive was traveling on Crowley Road near Settlement restaurant at roughly 1:30 a.m. when Sabattus patrol officer Andrew Levesque noticed Getchell wasn't strapped in and pulled over his vehicle, police said. After checking Getchell's driver's license, Levesque learned it had been suspended. Levesque cited Getchell for the two violations, then started to take an inventory of Getchell's vehicle because it had to be towed and impounded. That's when Getchell grabbed the handle of a 5-gallon bucket sitting in the passenger area and fled the scene, police said. Getchell was running for the woods and had gotten about 50 yards from his vehicle when Levesque caught up with him at the edge of the woods. When Getchell was nabbed, he resisted arrest, said patrol officer Gary Baillargeon, who took custody of the crime scene evidence later Monday. Police confiscated about 3.6 pounds of marijuana stashed in the gray bucket and in a brown paper bag found in a burlap sack in the passenger area of Getchell's vehicle. Police also found five Suboxone pills, a prescription narcotic medication for treatment of opioid dependence, according to the company's website. Baillargeon said Getchell was charged with: * Unlawful trafficking of schedule Z drug. * Possession of schedule W drug. * Operating after suspension. * Refusing to submit to arrest or detention. He also was cited for a seat-belt violation. He was released Monday on $1,000 cash bail from Androscoggin County Jail, a jail worker said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen Re: Are exe files safe? Hi Webby, I was going to download registry booster as you approved it, but it comes up on my computer as "Can potionally harm computer". Is it really safe to download it? I have a HP, windows XP. If you say it's OK to download it on my computer, I will do it. Many Thanks, Eileen Dear Eileen Yes, Registry Booster is perfectly safe. Before downloading, your computer just sees the .exe file extension. From an unidentified or unrecognized source, an exe type file CAN indeed be dangerous. However, from a well known and reputable source, it is perfectly OK. Even setup.exe, that installs Windows, is an exe type file. You just have to make sure the source, where the file comes from, is legit. Have FUN! DearWebby

During a readiness exercise, Bob and Jim were guarding the entrance to a bunker-like structure where aircrafts were kept. When a pilot about to do a preflight check approached without his identification in plain view, Jim asked him for it. "I don't see why I have to show you my ID," the pilot snapped. "After all, it is my plane." "Sir, with all due respect, it may be your plane," replied Jim, "but it's sitting in my garage, and if you don't change your attitude right now, you will never see it again!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Preserve Leaves With Hair Spray You can preserve colorful autumn leaves easily by spraying them on both sides with heavy duty hair spray! I did that, put them on twigs with wire - added nuts and other pods. I put them in a nice vase found in a thrift shop and made a lovely Thanksgiving centerpiece/guest gift to bring to my family's house. Outlay? $2-3 for the vase!

A hunter in Africa ran across a pigmy standing next to a huge dead elephant. The hunter then asked, "How does a little guy like you kill a huge beast like that?" Said the pigmy, "My club did it." The astonished hunter asked, "How big is your club?" The pigmy replied, "There are about 60 of us."
