Thanks, Roland !

England is blaming everyone, even WikiLeaks, for getting skunked
in the bid for the 2018 Worldcup, even though they didn't really
have a chance in the first place.

Moskow has weather control and can guarantee good weather for
the games, they don't have the messy rail problem that Britain has,
they are not worried about air traffic unions using the WorldCup
as a good time for a strike, and so on.

Items like this in yesterday's Metro UK, of course did not help
them either:


Compared to that, live seems a lot more civilized here.

Happy Hanukkha to those who observe and celebrate it!

Have FUN!

When the employees of a restaurant attended a fire safety seminar, they watched a fire official demonstrate the proper way to operate an extinguisher. "Pull the pin like a hand grenade," he explained, "then press the trigger to release the foam." Later an employee was selected to extinguish a controlled fire in the parking lot. In her nervousness, she forgot to pull the pin. The instructor hinted, "Like a hand grenade, remember?" In a burst of confidence she pulled the pin ... and hurled the extinguisher into the fire.

A young bride and groom to be had just selected the wedding ring. As the girl admired the plain platinum and diamond band, she suddenly looked concerned. "Tell me," she asked the elderly salesman,"is there anything special I'll have to do to take care of this ring?" With a fatherly smile, the salesman said, "The best way to protect a wedding ring is to never take it off and to dip it in dishwater for five minutes three times a day."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Craig Alberstat, 46, of Delray Beach, Florida Man lost car, made up robbery BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a man allegedly invented a story about a carjacking because he couldn't remember where he had parked his car. Boynton Beach police said they were approached by Craig Alberstat, 46, of Delray Beach, at about 2:20 a.m. Nov. 19 and he told them he had stopped while driving his 2003 Volkswagen Jetta to talk to a "cute girl on the street," the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Thursday. Police said Alberstat told them he was then approached by four robbers who assaulted him and took the vehicle. However, investigators said they soon determined Alberstat had invented the tale and he admitted to officers he had forgotten what he did with his car after using Xanax. "Alberstat apologized to detectives for 'wasting personnel's time,' " police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said. Alberstat, whose car was located by police the following day in a parking lot less than a mile from where he approached the officers, was charged with false report of a crime. "If someone calls police because they can't find their car, we would of course try to provide assistance, as we do anytime someone calls for help," Slater said. "That was not the case in this situation."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Patricia Re: Double Opt In Dear Webby, I am fairly new to the net, so please excuse my ignorance. What's this "Double-Opt-In stuff, and why? I realize, it's nowhere near as obnoxious as the rigmarole to sign up for a Yahoo newsletter, which is a half hour total nuisance, unless you are allredy a yahoo. So, what is it all about? Patricia --------------------- Dear Patricia There are two reasons for Double-Opt-In: #1 To make sure that it was YOU, who wants a subscription, not Gramma wanting you to get mail from a prayer group or some list owner harvesting adresses from an endlessly forwarded virus warning hoax. #2 Responsible list owners don't want to clutter up the net with mail to people, who can't receive their newsletter. If you don't get the confirmation request, then you obviously won't be able to receive the newsletter either. If you don't confirm within 72 hours, you stay out in the cold. Your address will not get added. If you don't receive an expected confirmation request, check your spam settings and if necessary those of your ISP. Have FUN! DearWebby

"What's that drink you're mixing" the stranger asked the bartender in the upscale Tex-Mex bar. "I call it a lil' Texas Shooter", said the bartender as he continued to mix up several batches of the drink. "What's in it ?" asked the stranger. "Sugar, milk and rum." said the barkeep. "Is it good ?" asked the man. "Sure is, Senor." said the bartender smiling. "The sugar gives you pep, and the milk gives you plenty of energy." "And the rum?" asked the stranger. That gives you plenty of ideas what to do with all that pep and energy." quipped the bartender.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Transporting Soup for Potlucks We have a lot of potluck days at work for birthdays, etc. We usually have a theme. Occasionally, it will be a soup theme. The last time we had one of these parties I made the soup the evening before, and put it into a gallon sized zip lock bag. Then I put the bag in the crock pot. It was winter, so I could leave it on the back porch until morning, but it could be refrigerated if you have room. The next day I didn't have to worry about the soup spilling on the way to work. It worked very well. By Kmcb59 from WA http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com Thriftyfun.com also has a newsletter.

St. Peter and Satan were having an argument one day about baseball. Satan proposed a game to be played on neutral grounds between a select team from the heavenly host and his own hand-picked boys. "Very well," said the gatekeeper of Heaven. "But you realize, I hope, that we've got all the good players and the best coaches." "I know, and that's all right," Satan answered. "We've got all the umpires."
