Happy 85th birthday, Sir Squirrel!

Finally got some wind from the West!
Snow and leaves are headed across the prairies now.
Get the snow shovels ready, Toronto and Chicago!

Thanks to Joann for this one: During my training as a medical-group receptionist, I was told never to recommend one of our doctors over another, but simply state who had available appointments. One day a woman came in and looked at me conspiratorially. "I'm a nurse," she whispered, "and I know the staff always knows which doctors are good and which aren't. Who do you think I should see?" Knowing my supervisor was listening close by, I tried to sound most professional. "Oh, I'm sorry," I replied. "I can't recommend any of our doctors." "Well, you must know!" she said, heading for the door.

A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue. Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Michelle Watson, 24, in Prescott, AZ Winner of free room and board for the winter at the Yavapai County Jail After Kneeing Cop In Groin, Arizona Drunk Driver Poses For Beatific Booking Pic The 24-year-old motorist had an eventful Thursday evening, according to cops in Prescott, Arizona. The intoxicated Watson, driving a Honda Civic, allegedly: * Hit “numerous curbs” and drove on the sidewalk * Said, “I don’t have to walk fucking anywhere” when approached by a cop * Shoved an officer after declining to take field sobriety tests * Had to be taken to the ground while scuffling with a cop * Kneed a second officer in the crotch while being handcuffed * Repeatedly cursed at police * Kicked the inside of a squad car Despite all this, Watson was beaming and flashing two thumbs up when she posed for the above booking photo at the Yavapai County Jail (her blood alcohol content was measured at nearly three times the legal limit). As detailed in a Prescott Police Department report, Watson was charged with aggravated assault on a cop, resisting arrest, and “DUI-super extreme.”
Tech Support Pits: From: Dora Re: Is Mapquest broken? Dear Webby Is Mapquest broken? Lately it happened more and more often, that Mapquest could not find addresses. Sometimes it refuses to find a NW street and instead insists on going to a SW street in the same town. And similar screw-ups. How do you get around that? Dora Dear Dora Yes, MapQuest is indeed getting rather flakey. These days http://bing.com/maps usually works better. Typical Microsoft, the controls are just a bit different, but it's not too difficult to get used to them. Aerial maps are OK for major cities, but rather pathetic for rural areas. For the bird eye view you may have to go back to MapQuest orGoogle Earth. Have FUN! DearWebby

Nancy was talking to her girlfriend....."My psychiatrist told me yesterday that the way to achieve true inner peace is to always finish what I start. I think I'm getting the hang of it-- So far today I've finished a bag of cheetos, a six-pack of beer, and the chocolate cake I baked for my mother's birthday party tomorrow."

In my job as an electronics salesman, I've seen the rise in popularity of sport-utility vehicles and minivans, which has created a market for rear-seat entertainment. Monitors that keep passengers occupied with movies and television have been selling like crazy. One day as I was showing a young couple how a monitor could play videos, DVD's, and even pick up local TV stations, the husband asked matter-of-factly, "Does it get cable?"
