"Never let yesterday use up too much of today." --- Will Rogers
A motorist was on trial for hitting a pedestrian. The motorist's lawyer made this point: "Your honor, my client has been driving for over thirty years." To which the lawyer for the plaintiff retorted: "Your honor, if we are going to judge this case by experience, may I remind you that my client has over 55 years of walking experience."

One Sunday afternoon, the Pastor's wife dropped into an easy chair saying, "Boy! Am I ever tried!" Her husband looked over at her and said, "I had to conduct two special services last night, three today, and give a total of five sermons. Why are you so tired?" "Dearest," she replied, "I had to pretend to listen to ALL of them!"
A lot of people asked me for the name of that yellow tree. Sorry, I don't know. A few people narrowed it down to a tree in Bolivia, but that is as close as anybody got. Click through for the big picture. On the war path again!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Sang Eun Lee, 38, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada Too drunk for a bra A drunk driver, who was told to remove her AA underwire bra, still broke the law, a judge ruled Thursday. If she had not been drunk, she would not have been locked up in the drunk tank. Sang Eun Lee, 38, tried to beat an impaired driving rap by accusing York Regional Police of violating her rights when they seized her underwire bra during an alleged illegal strip search after her arrest Jan. 30, 2010. But an Ontario court judge determined the woman wasn’t strip searched at all, and the arresting officer, a woman, was justified in ordering her remove the undergarment at the police station for the safety of herself, officers and other detainees. That is normal procedure with incarceration, not just with obnoxious drunks. Same as belts and shoe laces, anything, that could aid a drunk in commiting suicide or a further crime, is confiscated. “She did not arbitrarily select the defendant and decide to humiliate her,” Justice Anne-Marie Hourgian said of the officer in her ruling. The judge also pointed out Const. Jennifer Martin took Lee to a private room and didn’t actually ask her to strip. The officer testified she was “surprised” when Lee took off her shirt to remove her bra, Hourgian said. Martin expected she’d remove the bra through a shirt-sleeve, the judge said. In some jurisdictions, that is a common sobriety test. And she never inspected Lee’s chest, which she would have if she were conducting a strip search. She just made sure, that the drunk did not have that dangerous underwire while alone in the drunk tank. Standard procedure anywhere. Court heard that on the night in question Lee was drinking at Archibald’s on Yonge St., south of 16th Ave. When she left the Richmond Hill bar, staff had to help her to a taxi. The cab driver had testified there was a dispute and Lee decided to get out and drive herself home. The concerned cabbie called 911. Police caught up with Lee as she entered her townhouse complex several blocks away on Shaftsbury Ave. and parked in the wrong driveway. They claimed she was “dazed” and had problems with rolling down her window. She also stumbled and staggered when she got out of her car. Lee testified she was scared by the police presence and thought there may be some sort of emergency at her home. The Korean woman also claimed, through an interpreter, she didn’t understand the cops because they spoke in English. Lee’s lawyer, Leora Shemesh, asked the case be thrown out citing several Charter of Rights violations. She claimed police didn’t have probable cause to stop Lee, they didn’t explain her right to council in her native language and they conducted an unwarranted strip search. Canada's official languages are English and French. Talking like a drunk is not mentioned in the Charter of Rights. Justice Hourgian dismissed the Charter allegations and said she had doubts about Lee’s “credibility” after hearing “many inconsistancies” in her testimony. “I found her to be evasive in her answers to questions during cross-examination,” Hourgian said. The judge pointed out Lee attended an English university in the U.S. from 1993 to 1997 before coming to Canada. Hourgian also noted in surveillance video from the police station Lee had no trouble following officers’ instructions when she was arrested. Just another drunk. Lee was found guilty of impaired operation of a motor vehicle, no matter what language she was drunk in.
From: Rev Farren Re: Second monitor beside a laptop Dear Webby, I use a laptop for the internet...But I have an extra screen I had for my bigger puter... I found the cords for the extra screen and hooked them up...but now I can only work on the extra... I would like to be able to use both at the same time if possible...I do remember that you answered this question in the past... But I need help now? Please. Rev. Farren P Dear Rita Dear Rev Farren To use two monitors, you need a special video card. With laptops the video "card" is usually just a section on the motherboard, and space for additional, real, video cards is usually not sufficient. Contact the maker of your laptop, and ask them if they have add-on video cards for dual monitor operation. Dell, for example, makes a USB video card for $60 The USB 2.0 External Video Card allows you to connect an extra monitor to your desktop PC or laptop's USB port. The connected monitor can be configured to either clone your primary screen, or extend the Windows desktop allowing visibility of more applications at the same time. The USB 2.0 External Video Card driver used to control the extra screen uses very little computer resource and offers a vast array of screen resolutions and color depths. This ensures that there is little difference in performance between a directly connected screen and a screen connected through the USB 2.0 External Video Card. Probably other makers have similar external video cards, and with some searching around, you can probably find generic ones for around $15. Have FUN! DearWebby

A mother traveled 2,000 miles to be with her only son on the day he was to receive his Air Force wings and also get married. "It was wonderful," she said later. "It isn't every day that a mother watches her son receive his wings in the morning and have them clipped in the evening."
Daily tip from Leftover Cafe Need a fun way to get your family to eat leftovers? We have a "Leftover Cafe" night once a week. We decorate the table with fake flowers and candles, and play some music in the background. Taking turns each week, one of my daughters sorts through the fridge for leftovers from recent meals. Another makes a menu listing each food available. My little one just draws pictures, while my older daughter writes descriptions similar to what you might find on a fancy restaurant menu. One is the waitress, taking everyone's orders on a pad of paper and bringing them to the table with a French accent. I am, of course, the cook and am in charge of reheating everything. The kids think it's a blast, and actually eat more leftovers this way. Plus, it's great family time. Who knew eating leftovers could be so fun?

A guy goes to the psychiatrist. "Doctor," says the guy, "I feel as if I'm two different people! Two totally different personalities. Do you think I need help? Can you help me? Am I doing the right thing seeing a psychiatrist?" "Stop! Stop!!" says the doc. "Please, one at a time."

Quick Test 1) Some months have 30 days, some months have 31 days. How many months have 28 days? 2) If a doctor gives you 3 pills and tells you to take one pill every half hour, how long would it be before all the pills have been taken? 3) I went to bed at eight o'clock in the evening and wound up my clock and set the alarm to sound at nine o'clock in the morning. How many hours sleep would I get before being awoken by the alarm? 4) Divide 30 by half and add ten. What do you get? 5) A farmer had 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many live sheep were left? 6) If you had only one match and entered a COLD and DARK room, where there was an oil heater, an oil lamp and a candle, which would you light first? 7) A man builds a house with four sides of rectangular construction, each side having a southern exposure. A big bear comes along. What color is the bear? 8) Take 2 apples from 3 apples. What do you have? 9) How many animals of each species did Moses take with him in the Ark? 10) If you drove a bus with 43 people on board from Chicago and stopped at Pittsburgh to pick up 7 more people and drop off 5 passengers and at Cleveland to drop off 8 passengers and pick up 4 more and eventually arrive at Philadelphia 20 hours later, what's the name of the driver? Answers: 1) All of them. Every month has at least 28 days. 2) 1 hour. If you take a pill at 1 o'clock, then another at 1.30 and the last at 2 o'clock, they will be taken in 1 hour. 3) 1 hour. It is a wind up alarm clock which cannot discriminate between am & pm. 4) 70. Dividing by half is the same as multiplying by 2. 5) 9 live sheep. 6) The match. 7) White. If all walls face south, the house must be on the North Pole. 8) 2 apples. I HAVE 3 APPLES, YOU TAKE 2, WHAT DO YOU HAVE? 9) None. It was Noah, not Moses. 10) YOU are the driver.
