Moe sent me a fun quiz:
Who said that?
"Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s."

"I've now been in 57 states I think one left to go."

"On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of 
    fallen heroes and I see many of them in the audience here today."

"What they'll say is, 'Well it costs too much money,' but you know what? 
It would cost, about. It it it would cost about the same as what we would 
spend. It. Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs 
us. (nervous laugh) All right. Okay. We're going to. It. It would cost us 
about the same as it would cost for about hold on one second. 
I can't hear myself. But I'm glad you're fired up, though. I'm glad."

"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, 
savings and inefficiencies to our health care system."

"I bowled a 129. It's like - it was like the Special Olympics, or 
something."

"Of the many responsibilities granted to a president by our 
Constitution, few are more serious or more consequential than 
selecting a Supreme Court justice. The members of our highest 
court are granted life tenure, often serving long after the presidents 
who appointed them. And they are charged with the vital task of 
applying principles put to paper more than 20 centuries ago to some 
of the most difficult questions of our time."

"Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to 
the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma, they end 
up taking up a hospital bed, it costs, when, if you, they just gave, 
you gave them treatment early and they got some treatment, and a, 
a breathalyzer, or inhalator, not a breathalyzer."

"It was. Interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not 
that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of I don’t 
know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing."

"I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good 
judgments in the future."

Wonder who that could be?
Hint: It was not Jay Leno.

Have FUN!

"How did the wedding go?" asked the preacher's wife. "Just fine until I asked the bride if she would obey and she said, 'Do you think I'm nuts?' and the groom said, 'I do,' and then things really began to happen fast."

After watching the movie Cinderella, five-year-old Sarah started using her pinwheel as a magic wand, pretending she was a fairy godmother. "Make three wishes," she told her mother, "and I'll grant them." Her mom first asked for world peace. Sarah swung her wand and proclaimed the request fulfilled. Next, her mother requested for a cure for all ill children. Again, with a sweep of the pinwheel, Sarah obliged. The mother, with a glance down at her rather ample curves, made her third wish, "I wish to have a trim figure again." The miniature fairy godmother started waving her wand madly, and throwing furtive glances at her mother, checking for the first signs of any results. Finally she sighed and exclaimed: "For THAT I'll need more power!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Andrew H. Stcyr, 24, in Maryland Heights, MO Andrew H. Stcyr Caller tells cops man broke windshield, leaves out that he tried to run him over A Maryland Heights man who is deaf had an interpreter report to police earlier this month that a man broke the windshield of his car. What Andrew H. Stcyr, 24, failed to have the caller mention, according to police, is that he was trying to run over the man at the time. And he tried to run him over not once, but twice. Stcyr, of Maryland Heights, faces felony charges of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Lt. Craig McGuire, of the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department, said the incident appeared to be a case of road rage. It began near the traffic signal at Jungs Station Road and Upper Bottom Road shortly after 1 p.m. Jan. 14 when James A. Richardson, 52, of St. Louis, said he noticed a Lincoln Town Car following closely behind his Ford Taurus. Richardson told officers he stopped at the signal and Stcyr began blowing his horn. McGuire said Stcyr followed Richardson onto Arrow Rock Drive where he forced him to pull over. Stcyr was not only blowing his horn, but yelling at Richardson as well, McGuire said. Richardson exited his car and approached the Lincoln. Stcyr drove into Richardson, throwing him onto the hood and breaking the windshield, McGuire said. Richardson rolled off the hood and, according to McGuire, Stcyr drove into him again. Stcyr reportedly left the scene, and Richardson was taken to SSM St. Joseph Health Center for treatment. He has since been released. Maryland Heights police later were contacted by an interpreter calling on behalf of Stcyr, who reported that a man had smashed his windshield, McGuire said. Stcyr was released from the St. Charles County jail after posting a $20,000 bond. Stcyr was ordered to stay away from Richardson as part of his release. “Mr. Stcyr is hostile towards the victim for an unknown reason,” according to a deputy’s statement in the court file.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Guinn Re: DOS is too fast Hi, Webby, I have been trying most of the day to get xcopy to work per your instructions but without success. I, too, weaned on DOS but haven't opened the command line in a dog's age, until today. I have written the line out 10 times at least in Word Pad, checked and rechecked. When I saved it, it went into my Programs as a file and does bring up DOS for a second when I click on the icon. Obviously I need help. HELP! Guinn Dear Guinn DOS is extremely fast. Like I mentioned, it just does what it is told to do, and goes away. To watch it, try START RUN cmd At the command prompt, type: cd \ edit test.bat That opens the ol DOS editor. write your bat, save it and exit. then type test (you don't need to type the extension if it is .bat or .exe or .com) ENTER it will run and let you watch. When everything works as intended, then from then on you can just use the shortcut icon. Have FUN! DearWebby

An older Jewish man is on the operating table awaiting surgery. He has insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he is about to receive the anesthesia, the patient asks to speak to his son. "Yes, Dad, what is it?" "Don't be nervous, do your best, and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tiny Christmas Lights on the Deck I have a deck on the back of my house and at night it's pitch dark out there. I don't like to turn the porch light on because it attracts mosquitoes, etc. And citronella candles don't do a thing to repel them either. So I came up with a great idea. I took the tiny Christmas lights, and strung them under the railing all the way around. It gives a nice soft light, without attracting the bugs. Also lights up the steps just enough so the dogs and us are able to go up and down without falling. Now it's really nice to sit out there at night. By the way, I want to thank Deeli for her idea of lighting her way around inside and using green lights. The green ones would be even nicer on my deck too.

My husband and I were browsing in a crafts store when he noticed a display of country-style musical instruments. After looking over the flutes, dulcimers and recorders, he picked up a shiny, one-stringed instrument he took to be a mouth harp. He put it to his lips and, much to the amusement of other shoppers, twanged a few notes on it. After watching from a distance, I walked up and whispered in his ear, "I hate to tell you this, honey, but you're trying to play a cheese slicer."

The man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door onto the porch. Someone dialed 911. When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint. "It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the snow shovel !!!!"
