Good Morning,  !
It's Thursday, May 26

Thank you, John!

We are definitely back in the cooling ripple. It isn't 
Mother Nature making a fool of Al Gore and the grant seekers
any more, this is simply a eturn to the cool period like
we had 30 - 35 years ago.

When the grant seekers start howling about a pending ice 
age again, then you will know we are close to the end of 
the cooling ripple and will soon get gullible warming again.
 
Have FUN!

Thanks to Donnie for this report: I told my friend .... This morning I waded across a raging river, escaped from a bear in the woods, marched up and down a mountain, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, and climbed up an enormous tree! ... My friend said, " You must be some outdoorsman!" "No," I replied, "I'm just a lousy golfer."
Do you remember the smell and taste of REAL tomatoes? REAL tomatoes, that you could bite into, and smell a tomato sandwich from across the room? If you prefer REAL tomatoes like that, over the bland, tough- skinned stuff, that has been modified for mechanical harvesting, long distance transport and the convenience of the stores, the answer could be on your balcony or window sill. Organic Tomato Magic Use Method, not chemicals!

A pastor and two of his deacons are out on the river fishing in their rowboat. Twelve o'clock rolls around, and one of the deacons notices a nice spot on the bank to have lunch. He turns to the others and says, "That looks like a nice spot for lunch. What do you say we have lunch over there?" The other deacon agrees, and so does the pastor. The deacon stands up in the boat, steps out onto the river and walks over to the bank. The pastor looks on with amazement, and thinks to himself, if THIS deacon is holy enough to walk on water, surely he can too. The other deacon stands up, picks up the picnic basket, steps out of the boat, and walks over to the bank and sits with the first deacon. Again, to his amazement, the pastor thinks again, if even his second deacon is holy enough to walk on water, then surely he can too. He stands up, gingerly steps out of the boat, and sinks. The first deacon turns to the second and says, "Think we should have told him where the rocks are?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mark Endicot Jackson Jr, 40, in Jacksonville, FL 5-Year-Old Steers Car When Father Passes Out JACKSONVILLE | Authorities say a 5-year-old girl took the steering wheel and did her best to drive the car off the road after her father passed out. The 2010 Camaro jumped a curb, ran over landscaping and crashed into a parking sign before it came to a stop Monday evening. A Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report indicates the child had a bloody nose and lower lip. Officers found 40-year-old Mark Endicot Jackson Jr unresponsive and staring at the ceiling. He later told officials he had taken Xanax and oxycodone earlier in the day. Jackson was charged with driving under the influence while accompanied by a minor. He remained in the Jacksonville Jail early today, with bail set at $3,000.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Dimitris Re: Lexmark sabotages printers Dear Webby It has been reported that Lexmark is sending messages to the users to update their firmware, passing these changes off disguised as "product updates" or "system improvements" or printer enhancements or similar phrases used by the OEM printer manufacturer. However, installing these "updates" can leave the printer unable to accept any but the very newest Lexmark cartridges and really cause problems with remanufactured Lexmark cartridges. If you are happy with the printer's performance, then there will be no benefit for you to accept the phony "firmware upgrades". If you want to be sure to have the choice of a remanufactured cartridge from a trusted toner cartridges source like Atlantic Inkjet, then you should say No to ANY and all changes offered by Lexmark ® or Samsung ®, Dell ® or IBM ®. Dimitris Dear Dimitris Thank you for that important alert! Since my printer works just fine with toner from Atlantic Inkjet, I definitely won't mess with the drivers for it. Have FUN DearWebby

The preacher was having a heart-to-heart talk with a backslider of his flock, whose drinking of moonshine invariably led to quarreling with his neighbors, and occasional shotgun blasts at some of them. "Can't you see, Ben," intoned the parson, "that not one good thing comes out of this drinking?" "Well, I sort of disagree there," replied the backslider. "It makes me miss the folks I shoot at."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Safety Pin to Mark Front When Sewing When I make sweaters for myself or family, I mark the front of the sweater on the right side with a small safety pin. I use safety pins for holding sweater pieces together for sewing them too. They are small and easy to spot.

A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a conductor walking by outside. "What's going on?" she yells out the window. "Cow on the track!" replies the conductor. Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes, however, it stops again. The woman sees the same conductor walk by again. She leans out the window and yells, "What happened? Did we catch up with the cow again..?"

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in a long long line for judgment. As he stood there he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the gates of heaven - others, though, were led over to Satan who threw them into a burning fire pit. Every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, Satan would toss the soul to one side in a small pile. After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the better of him. So he strolled over and tapped Satan on the shoulder. "Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for judgment, but I couldn't help wondering why are you tossing those souls aside instead of flinging them into the fires of hell with the others?" "Ah," Satan said with a grin. "Those are from Seattle ... they're too wet to burn!"
