"Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing." --- Harriet Braiker "Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in." --- Leonard Cohen
A young vampire bat came flapping in from the night, covered in fresh blood, and perched himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep. Before long, all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it. He was tired and needing a rest, so he told them to please leave him alone. However, it was clear that he wasn't going to get any sleep until he satisfied their curiosity. "OK!" he said with exasperation, "follow me," and he flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats following close behind him. Down through the valley they went, across the river and into the deep forest. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly gathered around him. "Do you see that tree over there?" he asked. "Yes, yes, yes!" the bats all screamed in a frenzy. "Good," said the first bat, "Because I DIDN'T!"
A Sunday school teacher was instructing her class. Just before she dismissed them to go to church she asked them, "Why is it necessary to be quiet in church?" was quick to blurt out what was certainly the correct answer, "Because people are sleeping!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carolee Bildsten, 56 Drunk assaults cop with dildo Carolee Bildsten, 56, is facing an aggravated assault rap after allegedly attempting to strike a cop with a sex toy. As part of an investigation into a claim that Bildsten had skipped out on a restaurant bill last night, an officer from the Gurnee Police Department accompanied the suspect to her apartment, where she promised to retrieve money to pay the tab, according to a police press release. However, when Bildsten reached inside a dresser drawer to get the purported cash, she instead removed a “clear, rigid feminine pleasure device,” held it above her head, and advanced on the cop “in a threatening manner.” The officer responded by knocking the sex toy out of the way before he was struck with the device. The sex toy, which was not confiscated by cops, was further described by Deputy Chief Kevin Woodside in a TSG interview. The item, he noted, was six inches long and “attached to a nylon harness.” In addition to the assault count, Bildsten was charged with public intoxication and theft of services for allegedly dining and dashing at Joe’s Crab Shack. Bildsten had been arrested for drunk driving in September. Bildsten, free on a personal recognizance bond, is scheduled for a December 6 court appearance.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Sue Re: Is it safe to vacuum around computers? Dear Webby, Is it safe to vacuum around computers or will the static cause problems? Sue Dear Sue Yes, it is perfectly safe to vacuum around computers. They are grounded electrically, as long as you leave them plugged in, and nowadays all inputs are shielded. Do NOT unplug them before vacuuming around or inside them. You should, however, turn them off before you begin vacuuming. The reason for that is that you might accidentally unplug some cables, and that could cause the machine to crash. Depending on the environment they are in, desktop computers should be vacuumed out once per year, under-the-desk floor models should be opened and vacuumed out twice a year. Just open the computer and vacuum it out before the fuzzy dust blanket inside causes expensive parts to overheat and malfunction. All you have to remember is: Turn the computer OFF, but do NOT UNPLUG IT. If your computer is under your desk, put it onto some phone books, bricks, wood, anything, to raise it a bit above the floor, where the dust bunnies travel. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycling Water Around The Home Our two favorite ways to conserve/recycle water is using plants and pet dishes. Drop an ice cube? Instead of throwing it in the sink to melt, put it in a pet's water dish. You pet will love having cold water for a change. Roof leaking? Instead of putting buckets under the dripping area, put a plant there. Have a party where guests leave their drinks half finished? If any of the cups have water, dump the remains into the pet's water dish or potted plant. If you use well water and the electricity goes out for a long time from a winter storm, melt the snow to sanitize the water and then use for cooking or washing. If you think an upcoming storm will leave you in a lurch, put a few pots or buckets outside to gather the snow as it falls. It keeps the snow a little cleaner than if you had to scoop the snow off a patio table or the family car.
