The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of California, to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $3 - $5 range. Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart brand into their shopping carts, but "there is a market for cheap wine",said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing. She said: "But the right name is important." Customer surveys were conducted to determine the most attractive name for the Wal-Mart brand. The top surveyed names in order of popularity are: 10. Chateau Traileur Parc 9. White Trashfindel 8. Big Red Gulp 7. World Championship Riesling 6. NASCARbernet 5. Chef Boyardeaux 4. Peanut Noir 3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar! 2. Grape Expectations And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine: 1. Nasti Spumante The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with either white meat (Possum) or red meat (Squirrel).

Isaac and Aaron are in a bank when armed robbers break in. One robber rushes the teller windows, one guards the door and the third bank robber stands in the middle of the bank and yells, "Right! Everyone up against the wall and empty your pockets. We want valuables, watches and wallets." Aaron jams something into his buddy 's hand. "What's this?" asks his friend without looking down. "It's that $100 I owe you" answers his friend. ---------------- That reminds me of a raid on an opium den in Vancouver's Chinatown I witnessed in the early 70's. The cops had cordoned off the sidewalk and part of the street, so that anybody exiting the building had nowhere to go but into one of the four paddy-wagons with open doors on the other side of the street. Then one of them entered the building with a siren and a strobe light on an extension cord plugged into a portable genset. In short order a steady stream of elder Chinese men staggered out of the building, shading their eyes against the bright sunlight, and each of them passing hunks of dope to others, returning what they owed or had borrowed. Between the building exit and the paddy wagons most pieces of dope seemed to change ownership 4 - 5 times. It was hilarious to watch, and I wondered why they did not just drop the dope.

Tech Support Pits: From: Craig Re: Is PayPal safe for sellers? Dear Webby, How safe is PayPal for sellers when compared to credit cards? Thanks Craig Dear Craig PayPal is perfecly safe, both for consumers and for merchants. If there is a dubious payment, they will just hold that payment while they investigate and confirm it. They won't block your entire account and hold ALL your money, like for example Card Services International does. Also PayPal's rates and fees compare very favorably. Credit card systems have not improved in the last twenty years, they just got a lot more expensive for merchants. It seems, every time you check, they have tacked on some other fee, and nowadays with credit card acceptance you have to budget about 5% or more for those miscellaneous fees and rates. With PayPal it seems to be the opposite. Their rates and fees remained stable, but every time you check, they have added some more features and goodies that make life easier for merchants, without raising their rates. To top it all off, you can now use PayPal to process credit card payments at the same low rates as regular PayPal payments. PayPal is very strict against gambling, porno or selling illegal drugs. If they catch you selling that, they saw off your account for good, and then you HAVE to use cedit cards. Nowadays, if a company does not accept PayPal, then quite possibly they have been caught doig something, that PayPal frowns on. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Dave for this one: When we brought our new-born son to the pediatrician for his first checkup, the doctor said, "You have a cute baby." Smiling, I said, "I'll bet you say that to all the new parents." "No," he replied, "just to those whose babies are really good-looking." "So what do you say to the others?" I asked. "He looks just like you."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Organize Coupons In Card Sheet Protectors I was having a hard time keeping up with my coupons. So a friend of mine bought me a binder for my birthday, and I bought a pack of baseball card holder sleeves and a pack of dividers. Now I am so organized it's scary. My son says what is scary is that I actually know what coupons I have! It's a race to see how many I can use before they expire. I also have a steno pad where I write down for each store what I will use with a coupon.

Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "Called in Sick yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. The silence in the room was broken by a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!"

Two bored dealers are waiting around for someone to walk up and try their luck at the craps table. A very well built lady comes in and wants to bet twenty- thousand dollars on a single roll of the dice. The dealers agree. She says, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm half naked." With that she strips naked from the waist up, and rolls the dice while bouncing up and down and whispering, "Momma needs clothes!" She then begins jumping up and down and hugging each of the dealers. "YES! I WIN! I WIN!" With that she picks up the money and clothes and quickly leaves. The dealers just stare at each other dumbfounded. Finally one of them asks, "What did she roll anyway?" The other answers, "I don't know. I thought YOU were watching the dice!"
