Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

A few readers commented about my remarks about UPS cross
border problems and related similar tales of woe. A lot more,
though, wanted to find out, what that was all about.

First I want to state that for LOCAL shipments, UPS is OK. Not 
the best deal, but not really a problem. 

The problem with UPS is at the border. They charge you an
outrageous border handling fee, that frequently is more than 
the shipped item is worth.

And example of how they rip you off is at Why NOT UPS

Since then I specify on each order:
Order canceled if shipped via UPS.

When some idiot ships via UPS anyway, I refuse to accept it
and tell them where they can stuff it. And I claim back my
payment for the item. Not what I ordered.
They don't make that mistake twice.

Have FUN!

Mrs. Hunter was called to serve for jury duty, but asked to be excused because she didn't believe in capital punishment and didn't want her personal thoughts to prevent the trial from running its proper course. But the public defender liked her thoughtfulness and quiet calm, and tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury. "Madam," he explained, "this is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit. A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel the kitchen for her birthday." "Well, okay," agreed Mrs. Hunter, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all."

One night at McCord Air Force Base, I was dispatched to check out the security fence where an alarm had gone off. The fence was at the end of the base runway. When I got to the scene, I found a raccoon was the culprit, so I ran around and flapped my arms to scare the animal away. Suddenly an air-traffic controller came over the public-address system and announced loudly, "Attention to the airman at the end of the runway. You are cleared for takeoff."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ryan McNames, 19, in Columbia, Missouri Complaint about prostitutes lands man in jail A Columbia man was arrested after complaining to police that he was ripped off by two prostitutes. Ryan McNames: Sought money back from prostitutes Officers were dispatched to a complaint of theft around 7 p.m. Saturday, said Columbia police spokeswoman Officer Jessie Haden. Ryan M. McNames, 19, of 2701 E. Nifong Blvd. told officers he offered two women $60 for one of them to show him her chest and for the other to perform oral sex on him. After he placed payment on a stereo, one of the prostitutes showed him her chest, but the second did not perform oral sex, Haden said. The women took the money and left. McNames requested that the officer contact the women and get them to return at least $40 for an incomplete transaction. He told the officer he knew it was illegal but that he had made similar transactions before. McNames was arrested on suspicion of patronizing prostitution and released from the Boone County Jail after posting a $500 bond.

Sol Goldbaum, an elderly Jewish gentleman stood before a delicatessen display counter and pointed to a tray. "I'll have a pound of that roast beef," he said. "That's not roast beef," the clerk said loudly, "it's ham." "Sonny," the customer snapped, "in case nobody ever told you, you got a big mouth!"
Daily tip from Start Baking Christmas Cookies After Thanksgiving Just after Thanksgiving I start making my Christmas cookies. Each weekend I'll make a triple batch of one type of cookie. I'll scoop the cookies onto wax paper lined cookie sheets and cover with foil. Then I pop them into the freezer overnight. The next day I put the cookies in labeled zip top bags. As Christmas nears and I need cookies, I pull out a few of each kind, allow them to thaw about 30 minutes and bake. Presto! All different kinds of fresh baked cookies. The last batch is as fresh as the first. By Anniem from KS Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

There was this party in the woods and all of a sudden there was a downpour of thunder and rain. These two young men ran for about 10 minutes in the pouring rain, finally reaching their car just as the rain got even worse. They jumped in the car, started it up and soon had mud flying everywhere. They were laughing and, of course, still drinking one beer after the other. All of a sudden an old man's face appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly on the window! The passenger man screamed out, "eeeeekkk! Look at my window!!! There's an old guy's face there!" (Was this a ghost?!?!?!?) This old man kept knocking, so the driver said "well open the window a little and ask him what he wants!" So the passenger rolled his window down part way and said, scared out of his wits, "What do you want???" The old man sofly replied, "Do you have any tobacco?" The passenger , terrified, looked at the driver and said, "He wants tobacco!" "Well give him a cigarette! HURRY!!" the driver shrieked, without letting his foot off the accelerator. So the passenger fumbles around with the pack and hands the old man a cigarette and yells at the driver "Step on it!!", rolling up the window in terror. Now going about 80 miles an hour, they calm down and they start laughing again, and the passenger says, "What do you think of that?" The driver says, "I don't know? How could that be? I am going pretty fast?" Then all of a sudden AGAIN there is a knock on the window and there is the old man again. "aaaaaaaaaaaaa, there he is again!", the passenger yells. "Well see what he wants now!" yells back the driver. He rolls down the window a little ways and shakely says "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asks. He throws a lighter out the window at him and rolls up the window and yells, "STEP ON IT!" The speedometer now shows about 100 miles an hour and they are still guzzling beer, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden again there is more knocking! "Oh my God! HE'S BACK!" He rolls down the window and screams out, "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" in stark fear. The old man smiles and gently asks, "Do you want some help getting out of the mud?"

An Irishman's been at a pub all night drinking. The bartender finally says that the bar is closed. So he stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He figures he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he crawls home and at the door stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door and up the stairs. When he reaches his bed he tries one more time to stand up. This time he falls right into bed and is sound asleep. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting at him. 'So, you've been out drinking again!!' 'How did you know?' he asks. 'The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again.'
