Several men are in the locker room of a golf club, showering, getting changed for the 19th hole. (The bar) When a cell phone on a bench rings, a man picks it up, engages the hands-free speaker function, and begins a conversation. Man: "Hello?" Woman: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?" Man: "Yes." Woman: "Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you are. I just saw a beautiful leather coat. It's absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?" Man: "What's the price?" Woman: "Only a bit over $1,000." Man: "Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much." Woman: "Ahhh, you know that Nordic Track exerciser I told you about, to get you in shape? It's on sale for only $1995. I think we should get it while it is on sale. Man: "Just 1995 ?" Woman: "Yes, just 1995 instead of 2600." Man: "OK, but for that price I'd want it delivered and set up." Woman: "Great! But before we hang up, something else........" Man: "What?" Woman: "Mom called and wanted to know if she could stay a couple of weeks. She wants to attend some art course here in town. Would you mind terribly, Sweetie?" Man: "Aren't those courses a month? But I don't mind this time. I'll be busy anyway and there shouldn't be a problem." Woman: "OK, sweetie...Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!" Man: "Bye...I love you too..." The man hangs up and closes the phone's flap. The other men are looking at him in astonishment and derision. The man holds up the phone and asks, "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"
The personnel office received an email requesting a listing of the department staff broken down by age and sex. The personnel office sent this reply... "Attached is a list of our staff.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Melissa Pemberton, 24 in Orlando, Florida Woman steals TV by having Craigslist buyer come to victim's house, pull it off wall SANFORD Melissa Pemberton stole her mother's 42-inch TV two days before Christmas, according to court records. Here's how she did it: First, she sold it for $100 on Craigslist, a classified ad website, then she had the buyer show up at her mother's house in Maitland, pull it off the wall and haul it away, according to her arrest report. He had no idea he had just helped steal the TV, the report said. Pemberton pleaded no contest to grand theft and burglary six weeks ago in this and four other cases. In three of them, she stole things a guitar and amp, laptop computer, cell phones from her mother and stepfather, according to court records. She's now asking Circuit Judge Marlene Alva to let her take back the plea. That's due in part to the sentence she wound up with, one she had not negotiated: Alva ordered her to prison for eight years. After she was sentenced, Pemberton, 24, wrote the judge a letter, apologizing, admitting the crimes but blaming them on a pain pill addiction. She has no prior arrests, she wrote, and an eight-year sentence "is very extreme" ub=n her opinion. The day after the plea, her attorney, Assistant Public Defender Wayne Culver, filed paperwork, asking the judge to allow Pemberton to withdraw it. Culver wrote that the plea was involuntary because he had failed to give her good advice. The judge appointed Winter Park attorney Dana Harris to take over the case.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Charles Re: Icon arrows Dear Webby, There is a way to get rid of the icon arrows by editing the registry. Wouldn't that be a lot quicker, than downloading a program? Charles Dear Charles Yes, YOU can edit the registry. Most people prefer to use TweakUI instead. Keep in mind, TweakUI is a whole collection of fixes and tweaks. For example the "Clear Fonts" font tuner is in there too, for getting rid of the tiny jaggies on fonts, and quite a few more handy utilities. Unless you frequently hack around the registry, TweakUI is a better deal, and it is free anyway. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman devised her own system for labeling homemade meals she stored in the freezer. Instead of calling them Chicken Parmigiana or Meatloaf, she labeled them Whatever, Anything, I Don't Know and, her favorite, Food. That way when she asked her husband what he wanted for dinner, she was certain to have it on hand.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Book Exchange Party One year, my daughter hosted a book exchange for some of her friends and neighbors. Kids brought their used books and took turns selecting new old books. We baked a cake shaped like a book and that was it. The kids played outside afterward. No expense but for the cake and everyone had some books to enjoy afterward.

You have all seen those little hand-painted signs hung in so many kitchens. Many are heartwarming and homey, but many are simply hilarious. Here is a collection of the funnier ones: *A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen and this kitchen is delirious. *No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes. *A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house. *A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. *Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator. *Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused. *A clean house is a sign of a misspent life. *Help keep the kitchen clean - take me out for supper. *Housework done properly, can kill you. *Countless number of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead fairly normal lives.

One day a four-year-old son and his mother were watching TV. As they sat on the couch, she stated rubbing his head and noticed his hair was getting long. She told him he needed another haircut, then asked him, "Why does your hair grow so fast?" He replied, "Because you water it too much!"
