Insurance companies in the US seem to really enjoy the poor 
economy. People are really holding back with all co-pay 
procedures, saving the insurance companies huge amounts
of money. Since they like getting used to that kind of income,
now they want some legistlation that will guarantee them the
same leel of income when the economy recovers after the next
election.

Apparently they are leasing senators like crazy to get it
into legislation in time.

Have FUN!

Thanks to F. for this one: I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying: "Hi, how are you?" I'm not the type to start a conversation in the men's restrooms at a rest stop but, I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat embarrassedly: "Doin Just Fine!" And the other guy says: "So what are you up too?" What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say: "Uhhh I'm like you, just traveling east!" At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question. Can I come over to your place after while? Ok, this question is just wacky but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell him, "Well, I have company over, so today is a bad day for me!" Then I hear the guy say nervously... "LISTEN!!! I'll have to call you back, there's an idiot in the other stall who keeps fantasizing I am talking to him and he is answering all the questions that I ask you, bye!"
Have I got a deal for you! Aquaponics is on special for $37 instead of the normal $97! What's Aquaponics? Isn't that the top secret technology some pros use to grow medicinal herbs and stuff in half the time and two to ten times the crop per square foot? Yes, it sure is! It is the technology of combining a fish tank, that produces all the nutrients the plants need, with hydroponics, that cleans that stuff out of the water and preps it for the fish. Very neat and clean WIN-WIN deal! You don't need a shark tank on your balcony. The book tells you how small a fish tank is enough for your tomatoes and carrots and parsley and mushrooms and herbs. If you have a closet, balcony, or garden space, grab Aquaponics, while it is on sale! AND, they throw in $300 worth of additional books! By the way, there is no weeding necessary with Aquaponics!

A graduate in economics who completed his degree in the 1960's returned to his old university for a visit. He was amazed to see that the examination questions were identical to the ones asked in his day. When he pointed this out to a member of staff, the reply was, "That's true, but since the science of economics is explaining today why the perdictions we made last year were wrong, the answers obviously are different every year."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to James Kenneth Jones, 44, in Evans, GA Evans man calls cops, arrested when they find drugs An Evans man reporting a burglary was arrested on drug charges Wednesday after he invited police to search his home, where they found materials used to manufacture methamphetamine. James Kenneth Jones, 44, of the 200 block of Edwards Drive, called police just after 6 p.m. claiming a woman he knows kicked in his back door and stole a television, laptop computer and $694 cash from his bedroom earlier in the day. Jones said he didn’t report it immediately because he spoke to the woman who admitted she took the items and he thought she’d return them. He repaired the damage because he had to leave and called police when he returned. Police were searching Jones’ bedroom to determine if other items were stolen when they found a small amount of methamphetamine and pseuodephedrine in a dresser drawer. He then gave police permission to search the rest of the property. They also found a marijuana cigarette in the sofa, a partially smoked one in the ashtray of his car and more partially smoked marijuana cigarettes in a shed. Police found materials used to manufacture methamphetamine in the shed and home, including coffee filters, lithium battery strips and packaging, instant ice packs, muriatic acid, paint thinner cans and lye. Jones was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of substances with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. He is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Fred Re: Computer partially locks up when not in use Dear Webby, Lately, if I left the computer alone for a couple of hours, it gets almost impossible to use. Especially the browsers, and it takes me a long time to close enough tabs until it gets fast enough to be able to get any work done. As long as I am working, that does not happen, just when it sits idling, it seems to seize up. What is causing that, and how can I avoid it? Fred Dear Fred There are various programs that detect idleness, and figure that would be a good time to do a bit of housekeeping. The better disk defragmenters and anti malware scanners are typical for that. Normally, those are not a problem, since they just gag up on the computer, when you are sleeping. However, they can't tell, whether you are napping or shopping or attending to Wilma, they just see a chance to clean up. If you use FireFox, it is quite safe to close it down. It will remember all your open tabs of stuff, that you are going to check out some rainy day, and will obediently open them again, when you start Firefox again. The same with most other programs. Just close down what does not have to remain open before you walk away for any extended period of time. That frees more RAM for the housekeeping programs, allowing them to finish sooner and without having to steal RAM from other programs. Have FUN DearWebby

A professor asked a student to remain for a few moments after class. Holding out the young man's assignment, the professor said, "Did you write this poem all by yourself?" The student said, "Every word of it." "Well, then, I'm glad to meet you, Mr. Poe. However,.... since it would be rather tedious to re-write all the books, that claim that you have died already," the professor said, as he pulled one of the swords from the coat of arms up on the wall, "....it will be easier to make a quick correction to your state of aliveness."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Drill Drainage Holes In Your Trash Can Make washing out your trash can a breeze: drill several 1/2 inch holes in the bottom. The holes will allow you to hose down the insides without having to dump out the water, and also prevent rainwater from collecting. Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2004 By cailifouhnofthemist from Williams Lake, BC http://www.thriftyfun.com/ http://www.thriftyfun.com/ No need to go out and buy an expensive 1/2" bit and drill, that can handle a big bit like that. Just drill a bunch of small holes at the lowest area, and then attach some galvanized mosquito mesh with small, self-tapping screws and washers. Otherwise you might get mobbed by a Million fruit flies the next time you open the lid. Have FUN!

His wife had been killed in an accident the day before and the police were questioning Finnegan. "Did she say anything before she died?" asked the sergeant. Finnegan nodded. "What did she say ?" "Well, she spoke without interruption for about forty years," Finnegan said, "but I didn't put a battery into my hearing aid till just this morning."

The Minister was shaking everyone's hand while they were leaving the Church, An elderly gentleman said to him: "Reverend, that was the worst sermon I've ever listened to, it was terrible". While the Minister remained speechless, the gentleman's wife wanting to be helpful said, "Reverend, please don't listen to him, he slept through most of it and is only repeating what he hears other people saying."
