The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization. --- Ralph Waldo Emerson I was watching the Discovery Channel and turkeys are amazing creatures. They have been bred over hundreds of years to have small brains, big breasts, and peck at food. So they're like the supermodels of the animal kingdom. --- Jay Leno People who never get carried away should be. --- Malcolm Forbes
A psychology student was to help a professor in conducting a personality test. The room was set up with various props in order to move through the assessment quickly. The first person to enter the room started through the test. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 1: It is half empty. Student writes 'pessimist' in his report. Person 2 enters the room. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 2: It is half full. Student writes 'optimist' in his report. Person 3 enters the room. "How does this glass of water look to you?" Person 3: Looks like you have twice as much glass as you need there. The student looks totally blank and goes to consult with the professor. "Oh them!", the professor says, "I forgot to warn you about the engineers! They have no personality."

A man was on a walking holiday in a foreign country. He became thirsty so decided to ask at a stranger's home for something to drink. The lady of the house invited him in and served him a bowl of soup by the fire. There was a wee pig running around the kitchen - running up to the visitor and giving him a great deal of attention. The visitor commented that he had never seen a pig this friendly. The housewife replied: "Ummm, he's not that friendly. That's his bowl you're using"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Michelle Polan, 21 Locked kids in basement, went drinking La Vista, Nebraska Michelle Polan, a 21-year-old La Vista woman was jailed after she allegedly left her 9-month-old twins and a three-year-old alone in the basement for 9 hours so she could go out drinking. According to La Vista police, Polan's sister reportedly discovered the children alone in the basement of Polan's home early Saturday after she heard the babies crying. She contacted police after Polan did not return home for over 8 hours or show any concern for her children. Polan tried to sneak in through the back door around 6:00 p.m, nearly an hour after child protective services had removed the children from the home. They are now in the care of Polan's mother. Investigators say when officers questioned Polan, she claimed that she had been at work all day. She appeared to be intoxicated, however, and was administered a blood-alcohol test. When the test showed that she was almost twice the state's legal driving limit, she admitted that she had been drinking all day at a friend's house. Her sister told police that this was not the first time Polan had left her children alone. Polan was booked into jail and charged with two counts of felony child abuse. She is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
Tech Support Pits: From: Mike Re: 404 or 500 errors Dear Webby I have a problem with my Internet browser I get when proceeding to site error 404 forbidding area or error 500 not allowed to view this page .... my question is how do fix this, in laymen's terms. I am using a verizon air card for high speed, but it is not really that fast. Mike Dear Mike That is not your browser's fault. You see those errors if the webmaster forgot to upload the page you are looking for or if there is a server error, or when Verizon is too slow in your area. It could also be that there is a typo in the link that you used to get to that site. You can write to the webmaster of that site and ask for clarification. Considering how many people are extremely unhappy with those air cards, I would suggest that you call Verizon and insist, that they give you 2/3 of the speed, that you pay for. Have FUN! DearWebby

A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones having gone to sea, his wife desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety."
Daily tip from College Survival Kit This is an idea for a going away gift for anyone going to college. My neighbors daughter is leaving for college and I wanted to give her something special to take with her. I found a very nice small vintage looking suitcase at an estate sale. I have had such fun filling it with inexpensive necessities and I am really proud of myself at how thrifty I have been. Items included in the suitcase are, cookies, instant ramen noodle soups, instant hot chocolate, a pretty mug, again purchased at a estate sale. Pencils, pens, highlighters, a dayplanner, a phone card which was a buy one get one free at Walgreens drug store, a pretty package of notecards and a book of stamps. Gifts do not have to be expensive to be a blessing! All of the items I have purchased at estate sales, or at a very good sale price!

Once upon a time in their marriage, my Dad did something really stupid. My Mom chewed him out for it. He apologized, they made up. However, from time to time, my mom mentions what he had done. "Honey," my Dad finally said one day, "why do you keep bringing that up? I thought your policy was 'forgive and forget.'" "It is," she said. "I just don't want you to forget that I've forgiven and forgotten."

The company I worked for had an employee suggestion competition, the entire staff was asked to submit entries that would save money for the firm. The winner was a man who suggested the company save paper by posting corporate memos on bulletin boards, instead of printing 200 individual copies for distribution. He won a helium balloon with the company logo and one share of stock. A memo announcing the winner went out to 200 people.
