Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday,May 14

Thank you, Doug!

Spring has sprung, finally!
The raspberries agaisnt the south wall have little leaves
on them, and the Saskatoon bushes in the back have buds,
that will blossom probably within a week.
I mowed the front half, and probably will mow the back
tomorrow. Got to show the dandylions who is the boss!

The rhubarb has woken up and is growing almost fast enough
to watch it. I'll have rhubarb on my oatmeal in a few days.

Have FUN!

Here is a nice old classic: This happened about a month ago just outside of Willmar, a little town in the back country of Minnesota, and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real. This out of state traveler was on the side of the road, hitchhiking on a real dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm. Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghostlike in the rain. It slowly and silently crept toward him and stopped. Wanting a ride real bad the guy jumped in the car and closed the door; only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel, and no sound of an engine to be heard over the rain. Again the car crept slowly forward and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that the car was approaching a sharp curve and, still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and began begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into a nearby lake and he would surely drown! But just before the curve a shadowy figure appeared at the driver's window and a hand reached in and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend. Then, just as silently, the hand disappeared through the window and the hitchhiker was alone again! Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve. Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and jumped out of the car and ran and ran, into town, into Willmar. Wet and in shock, he went into a bar and voice quavering, ordered two shots of whiskey, then told everybody about his supernatural experience. A silence enveloped and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth (and was not just some drunk). About half an hour later two guys walked into the bar and one says to the other, "Look Ole, ders dat idiot that rode in our car when we wuz pushin it in the rain."

Keeping up with your children can send to you a psychologist. Trying to figure them out is a task that no one has conquered as this next joke shows. Little Johnny has been bringing his drawings home from kindergarten everyday since he started a month ago. Each day his mother admires the pictures and hangs them on the refrigerator. One thing starts bothering her though. Little Johnny only uses black and browns for his drawings. Fearing a problem with her young son and not wanting to make it worse, she decides to take him to a child psychologist. The psychologist delicately goes to work. He gives Johnny a battery of psychological tests. He chats with Johnny. Everything seems perfectly normal. Everyday for two weeks, the tests continue. Yet everyday, little Johnny continues to bring home drawings in only black and brown. Frustrated at not being able to get to the root of the problem and fearful that something is terrible wrong, the child psychologist decides to give little Johnny some paper and a box of crayons and observe what happens. Little Johnny opens the box of crayons and yells "Oh boy! A new box of crayons! At school we only have old boxes. The only ones left in mine are black and brown!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Christina Beasley, 23, from Lumberton, North Carolina Charged With Attempting To Burn Down Boyfriend's House…. A Second Time Christina Beasley, a 23-year-old North Carolina woman was jailed for allegedly trying to burn down her boyfriend's house ....a second time. According to police, Beasley attempted to burn down her boyfriend's home after she had bailed out of jail for the exact same crime. Investigators say Beasley had been charged in December with second-degree arson and burning personal property after she allegedly tried to set her boyfriend's home on fire. The damage was estimated to be $10,000. When Beasley was released on bail, her boyfriend reportedly invited her to return to his home. On Tuesday, the boyfriend asked Beasley to leave his home following an argument. In retaliation, Beasley piled firewood up against the boyfriend's home and tried to ignite it. Beasley was booked into jail and charged with first-degree arson and injury to real property.
Tech Support Pits: From: Olive (not the other reindeer) Re: Is PayPal safe for buyers? Dear Webby, OK, so PayPal is the favorite tool of the Billionaire merchants, what about us poor buyers? What is the best deal for us? Thanks Olive (not the other reindeer) Dear Olive PayPal is definitely the best deal for buyers. The seller pays for the transaction. If you grow some spinach or herbs on your balcony, and sell that online, then you pay about 29 cents per transaction and 0.02% of the total. The buyer just pays whatever you specify for the price. You don't have to be a Billionaire or big merchant to use PayPal to accept payments. If you put the results of your spring cleaning onto eBay, like Millions of people do, then you can use PayPal to collect the money, before you actually ship anything. PayPal also includes excellent buyer protection. If whatever you buy is not what you expected, PayPal will get your money back. It is not instant. They check it out and that can take a few days, but normally, if there is a dispute, you get your money back in the same week. With that protection at the ready, the buyer can relax and click a payment for a purchase ot an invoice without any worry. You can set your PayPal to use money in it, for example from your herb sales, or to draw money from your bank account like a debit card does, or a combination of those methods. It is entirely up to you. Once it is set up, you can pay for invoices or purchases by just entering your password, no need to dig out the credit card and typo in that long number. Have FUN! DearWebby

According to a recent survey, men say that the first thing they notice about a woman are their eyes. Women say that the first thing they notice about men is that they're a bunch of liars.
Daily tip from Spice Up Your Coffee With Cinnamon Stick Give yourself a no-calorie treat by adding a drop of quality real vanilla to your coffee. A sprinkle of cinnamon powder or pumpkin pie spice can also be added for those wanting a spicier fare. Also, instead of buying chocolate coffee creamer, you can use plain chocolate syrup that you may already have in your fridge to your coffee along with a bit of cream. Another favorite of mine is to add a tablespoon of Tang to my coffee. This reminds me of the coffee served with orange zest I was once served at a fancy coffee bar back in the early 70's (before there was Starbucks). For an extra-special treat, turn your coffee into a dessert, by adding a squirt of whipped cream. A great way to use canned whipped cream left over from potlucks and family get-togethers.

A tough old cowboy once counseled his grandson that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a little gunpowder on his oatmeal every morning. The grandson did this religiously and he lived to the age of 93. When he died, he left 14 children, 28 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren and a fifteen foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.

Hiram lay breathing his last. He rose on one elbow and told the bedside gathering his last wishes, then began recounting financial matters. "Don't forget Samuel owes me $7,000." His wife, Miriam, said, "What a mind the man has, clear as a bell to the very end." "And I owe my partner Sid $210,000 for..." At that point, his wife cut in, "Pay no attention to the poor man's ravings, he's obviously out of his head."
