Good Morning,  !
It's Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Today I got a very nice "donation" via PayPal. Briefly I was
quite elated and envisioned putting a nice little dent into the 
phone bill.

Then the next letter explained....
A friend and customer is currently in Egypt, where the 
government seems to be still messing around with trying to 
control the Internet. PayPal of course objects to anybody 
messing around and didn't let him use PayPal in a less than
secure method to pay for his web hosting bill. 

So Chuck emailed a friend in the US and asked him to click
me some money. Instead of going to the online invoice, that
friend clicked me a donation and had me grinning like a fool
for a minute.

I am still happy about a paid invoice, but somehow it is not
the same as a surprise donation.

Have FUN!

The little boy was caught swearing by his teacher. "Tyson," she said, "you shouldn't use that kind of language. Where did you hear it?" "My daddy said it," he responded. "Well, that doesn't matter," she explained, "I don't want to hear that language in here again." After a moment, she muttered under her breath, "At least he doesn't know what it means." "I do, too," Tyson corrected. "It means the car won't start."

A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17." The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only 16 chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kisten Anise Hall, 24, in Memphis, Tessessee Woman arrested after assaulting cops rather than clean up her dog's mess MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Memphis woman who was adamant about not cleaning up after her dog in a park has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. It all started on Thursday when officers saw 24-year-old Kristen Anise Hall's pit bull defecate in a city park at Spottswood and Prescott, and then watched Hall walk on. When police told her she needed to clean up the mess, she refused and said she walked her dog there often and never scooped up after it. When an officer attempted to issue her a citation, police say Hall kicked and bit the officer's hand, apparently trying to incite her pit bull to "defend" her and attack the cop. However, the dog was smart enough and did not have to be shot. Hall was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and resisting arrest.

Old man Murphy had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the widow Murphy of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but your poor husband passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "Knowing Pat Murphy like I do, I don't think so," said the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Wire Hangers Into Scarf Hangers Scarves are all the rage now and I wear them almost daily. I have always had a scarf collection, but with the fashion, I like to keep them handy. I hang them on wire clothes hangers that I have bent to form an "O" shape. I hang my scarves on them and then hang the wire scarf hangers on the wall. It makes them much easier to locate.

Two Irishmen were adrift in a life boat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, one of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter the man blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!" The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the men considered their circumstances. One man looked disgustedly at the other whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going idiot! All that beer, and only such a small boat for a urinal !"

The CIA lost track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words,'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in the first bar he sees. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, across the street. There's Murphy the Plumber next door. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives on 24 East Broadmoor in Dublin, on the second floor. But,.... from what I hear he's vacationing in Hawaii right now. You'll have to ask Murphy the travel agent to get the phone number of the hotel he's staying at.
