Thank you John McC

The sun was out today! It wasn't warm enough to melt much snow,
but it felt good to stand in sheltered spots out of the wind 
and enjoy the rays of the sun.

When I went for my walk to the post office after 5, I noticed
that most houses had bare roofs, and only a few still had snow
on them. That makes it really easy to tell, who has proper 
insulation and who is wasting their heating money.

My roof has lots of snow on it. I use a good vapor barrier
in the ceiling, sealed the idiotic attic vents, that the
furnace fuel merchants talked the previous owners into,
and over the years heaved hundreds of shopping bags,
filled with losely wadded up shopping bags and egg cartons,
up there. The insulation value is probably around R-400,
and all those bags are sitting on top of the R-6 insulation,
that was up there, when I bought the house.

Some friends suggested I should patent my ideas about
insulation. Nah, waste of money. With ideas THAT good
and effective, you can't force most people to copy them,
and the rare ones who ARE smart enough, they deserve
a freebie.

Have FUN!

The trendy dresser fancied himself quite a romeo, and was delighted to find a note pinned inside a new shirt. It contained a girl's name and address, and asked the recipient to send a photograph. How romantic, he thought to himself, very taken with the idea of this mystery woman so eager to meet him, and promptly mailed off a note and a photo. Heart aflutter, he opened her response. It read, "Thanks for writing. I was just curious to see what kind of guy would buy such a goofy shirt."

One day a salesman stopped by the Jammer Jones farm, knocked, and Jammer's wife Frannie came to the door. "Is your husband home, Ma'am?" he asked. "Sure is. He's over at the cow barn." "Well, I got something to show him, Ma'am. Will I have any difficulty finding him?" "Shouldn't have any difficulties... He's the one with the beard, mustache and glasses, - and no horns."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Harry Lee Gray, 67, in Fort Pierce, Florida Cyclist says man in electric wheelchair chased her around parking lot on three days ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. - Police arrested a 67-year-old man after a woman said he “charged” her in his electric wheelchair, crashing into her bicycle after chasing her around a parking lot on three days. The victim earlier this week told Fort Pierce police she was on her bicycle when Harry Lee Gray “charged her in his electric wheelchair” at an address in the 600 block of Avenue B, according to a recently released arrest affidavit. She said Gray purposely crashed into her leg and bicycle, knocking her off. Further, she said he picked up the bike, which her late father had given to her, and “slammed” it down, causing the front tire to come off. “(The victim) stated that Gray has chased her on the last three days around the parking lot, but she never called the police,” an affidavit states. Gray, who police said appeared “very intoxicated,” denied doing anything. He then offered the woman money to repair the bike. Witnesses said they saw Gray knock the victim from the bicycle before picking it up and slamming it down. “It should be noted that Gray is not wheelchair bound, and he can walk” the affidavit states. Gray, of the 600 block of Avenue B in Fort Pierce, was arrested on misdemeanor battery and criminal mischief charges.
From Lynn Re: Double Extensions Dear Webby, I know you said to always trash any attachments that have two extensions, because they never have anythin worthwhile but usually something harmful. My brother sent me a letter that had an attachment with two extensions, so I deleted it and told him to clean up his act. He told me they are not bad, and that it can happen when one picks up a page saved from the net and opens it with a spreadsheet program. He told me not to worry about double extensions. Lynn Dear Lynn Yes, it could happen, if somebody is too absentminded to save a file properly, just like it can happen, that somebody like him watches people on the other side of the street,- and walks into a lightpole. Only somebody who has walked into too many light poles would tell others to not worry about double extensions. There may be the odd harmless ooops, but with double extensions the hostile and dangerous files outnumber the ooopses by a Million to one. With viruses and worms it is much smarter to err on the safe side. You did the smart thing. Have FUN DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Baskets To Organize Refrigerator And Freezer I find that if I use wire baskets (or plastic) to organize my freezer and refrigerator, it is so much easier to find things and also to clean them. I move the oldest items in the freezer to the bottom bin so they get used sooner. This has saved me a lot of time looking for things.

On a U.S. cruiser the officer of the deck asked the starboard lookout, "What would you do if a sailor was washed overboard?" "I'd yell 'Man overboard,'" answered the lookout snappily. "Good," said the officer. "Now what would you do if an officer fell overboard?" The lookout asked, "Which one, sir?"

Here is an old classic, returned by Collette: During a friendly argument, my husband asked me why I married him in the first place. "I was just stupid," I teased. When he said he was happy to hear that, I requested an explanation. "People get divorced all the time because they fall out of love," he said. "But I've never heard of anybody falling out of stupid."
