"Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper." --- Francis Bacon
Bernard, who is noted for his gracious manners, was awakened one morning at 3:44 A.M. by his ringing telephone. "Your dog's barking, and it's keeping me awake," said an angry voice. Bernard thanked the caller and politely asked his name and number before hanging up. The next morning at precisely 3:44 A.M., Bernard called his neighbor back. "Good morning, Mr. Williams. just called to tell you, that I don't have a dog."

An Army major, was conducting a field test when communications went dead, just when headquarters initiated a call to him. Immediately, he jumped into a jeep and ordered a sergeant to speed to the command station. When the major and the sergeant ran in, the group cheered their arrival. The commanding officer then stepped forward and shook the major's hand. "Don't congratulate me, sir," he said modestly as he pointed to his driver. "It was all the sergeant's doing." The commanding officer nodded and turned to the sergeant. "Congratulations," he said. "The major's wife just had a baby girl."
Thanks to Dad for this picture: Click on the picture for the large version Ann, a sharp-eyed reader, asked what the bush in the far right corner of yesterday's pictrue was. It is a "Christus Dorn", Christ Thorn. The bush blooms at Easter, and has very wicked, poisonous thorns, that cause painful swelling and irritation. Nowadays that bush grows in the wild only in Madagascar, and it is a controversial mystery, how it had gotten to Jerusalem 2000 and some years ago, but then totally disappeared from that area. It is shown in drawings and paintings ot the time, but not since then.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to James Patrick Brennan III, 31 in Gresham, Oregon Police dog persuades burglary suspect to give up GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) - A burglary suspect holed up in an Oregon deli refused police commands to come out, but changed his mind after hearing from a police dog. Gresham police say the police dog persuaded 31-year-old James Patrick Brennan III to surrender early Wednesday because the man was worried its bite would be worse than its bark. Apparently, James Patrick Brennan III, 31, was worried about getting bitten. He immediately walked out of the Deli Barn at 2410 S.E. 182 Ave. and surrendered to police, who had already taken Trino Lopez Sr. a suspected accomplice, into custody. The alleged robbery was uncovered at 2:56 a.m. Wednesday by Gresham Officer Mark Hawley, who was on patrol. He noticed a car parked out in front of the deli, which was closed. He remembered the store had been robbed in January and that the surveillance tape had shown a car parked in the same spot at the time of that break-in. Hawley pulled out a pair of binoculars to get a good look from a safe distance, and saw that the glass door had been smashed in. He parked east of the store and crept up on foot, discovering a suspect in the car. He could hear crashing sounds inside the Deli Barn. Hawley ordered the man inside the vehicle, Trino Lopez Sr., 39, to surrender. He did. Hawley and other officers called to the scene ordered Brennan to come out. He refused. That's when the Portland K-9 was called to the scene to try to bark the suspect into giving up. It's a commonly used tactic to keep police from having to use their weapons or risk being hurt themselves, Grandjean said. It worked. Lopez was booked into Multnomah County jail on suspicion of burglary one and possession of methamphetamine. Brennan faces allegations of burglary one, criminal mischief two and possession of burglary tools.
Tech Support Pits: From: Raina Re: laptop battery draindown Dear Webby, How often should a laptop battery be drained down to make sure it does not go stale? I normally have my laptop plugged in all the time. Thanks Raina Dear Raina Once a month is a good time. Just use it without power and drain it down until the computer goes into hybernation. Then plug it back in. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Sunday School teacher of preschoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus Christ because of the Christmas season emphasis on His birth. He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred for real. He asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?" Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven." Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart." Little Johnny, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know, I know! He's in our bathroom!!!" The whole class got very quiet, looked at the teacher, and waited for a response. The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. Finally, he gathered his wits and asked Little Johnny how he knew this. Little Johnny said, "Well . . . every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, "Good Lord, are you still in there?!"
Daily tip from Use Cloth Napkins Instead Of Paper Our family of four includes two children who can get very messy during mealtime. Instead of having them use cheap one-ply napkins that fall apart the minute you try to wipe your hands with them, I decided to use cloth napkins. The napkins can usually be purchased for $0.50 to a $1.00 each depending on where you buy them. I once purchased a clearance priced set of 4 from Target for a $1.00. I made sure to purchase enough for when we have family over. You can also make your own from old cotton t-shirts but keep in mind the type of fabric you use will determine the amount of absorbency. I would strongly recommend you refrain from decorating the homemade napkins with glitter or puff paint as that might defeat their purpose.

A man hated his wife's cat and he decided to get rid of it. He drove 20 blocks away from home and dropped the cat there. The cat was already walking up the driveway when he approached his home. The next day, he decided to drop the cat 40 blocks away but the same thing happened. He kept on increasing the number of blocks but the cat kept on coming home before him. At last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right and so on until he reached what he thought was a perfect spot and dropped the cat there. Hours later, the man calls his wife at home and asked her, "Jen is the cat there?" "Yes, why do you ask?"answered the wife. Frustrated the man said, "Put that cat on the phone, I am lost and I need directions."

Secretary: "My printer is flashing '''Error 13 Paper Out" Buzzy: "Check to see if there is paper in the machine" Secretary: "Already did, no - there is no paper in the machine" Buzzy: "Try filling the paper bin, see if that fixes the 'error''." Secretary: "Hold on.... Yes that fixed it, but every time it runs out of paper I get the error again." Buzzy: Hmmmm, I'll have to research that problem. Might be best if you drop the printer off at my office.
