Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, September 10

Two of our servers are under attack, and we shut down most
services to protect the data, and make it easier to fight off 
the attack. Once everything is back to normal, the pictures
will show up again. Oh, and the newsletters will be delayed
until then as well.

Sunday afternoon Dianne, the lady, who sends me the Bonus 
Links, skyped me and told me to go for my walk early, because 
a wicked storm was forecast.

Yeah, yeah, I know.
When I did leave, the cute neighbor lady was tying stuff down 
in her garden and told me that I was going to get soaked 
before I got back.

I hiked to the store below the post office and bought some
potatoes, nothing else, and headed back.
Half way back the sky turned black, and the wind picked up.
Nice tail wind pushing me along! This was fun!
I grinned when I saw branches, leaves and what looked like 
tumbleweeds racing up the street and passing cars.

Then, with a lot of hooting and hollering and screeching a
bunch of teens on bicycles raced up the hill, sitting tall,
hands-free, holding their jackets open and flying up the
hill three times faster than they had ever pedalled down it.
Dang! I should have used my bicycle!

Well, I got home in record time and was within sight of
my house when the first big drops hit. Horizontally.
The last block was against the wind, so I cinched down the 
chinstrap on my hat, leaned into the wind and cranked up
my speed. 

The drops were sparse enough and the wind strong enough,
that they dried as fast as they hit. My shirt was a little bit damp
on the shoulders, but by no means wet, when I got into the 
shelter of the house and stopped to watch the storm.

Dianne later skyped me that the top speed of that storm 
was measured at 110 km/h. (about 70 mph)
It sure cleaned the leaves left by the hail storm a couple 
of weeks ago and blew them down to the prairies.
Nobody around here had raked them up. We knew that
sooner or later some wind would get them.

Have FUN!

If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven. --- Will Rogers Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel. --- John Quinton Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. --- Oscar Ameringer There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit.

Here's hoping there is no one like this at your workplace. Faced with hard times, the company offered a bonus of one thousand dollars to any employee who could come up with a way of saving money. The bonus went to a young woman in accounting who suggested limiting future bonuses to ten dollars.
Watching her mother as she tried on her new fur coat, the young daughter said unhappily, "Mom, do you realize how much some poor dumb beast suffered so you could have that?" The woman shot her an angry look, "How dare you talk about your father like that!"

Click on the picture for the large version Largest QR is the corn maze in Lacombe, Alberta 28,800 square metres (310,000 square feet) The second-biggest one is in Belgium and measures a mere 1315.23 square metres (14,156.96 square feet), less than 1/20 of the one in Lacombe, Alberta. I had a chuckle when I looked at their site: Cheap ladies in Lacombe, Alberta: Latest News at Kraay Family Farm Wednesday, September 12 is LADIES' NIGHT at the farm - All Ladies are half price between 4pm and 8pm!! It probably would not be safe to inquire about the prices the Ladies of the (Wendnesday) Evenings charge.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Gerome Robinson, 18, in Lake City, Florida To Police "The Devil Tried To Rape Her In My Body" Gerome Robinson, an 18-year-old Florida man accused of attempting to rape a 13-year-old girl, told police "the devil tried to rape her in my body." According to Lake City Police, a 13-year-old girl was walking to her grandmother's house when Robinson approached her and asked if she wanted to "hang out."

At some point in the struggle the girl broke free and ran. Robinson tried to chase the girl but was stopped in his tracks by his mother. He was hauled back inside until police arrived a short time later. During a police interview, Robinson stated that "the devil tried to rape (the girl) in my body." Robinson was apprehended and booked into jail and charged with battery and lewd or lascivious battery. His bond has been set at $55,000.

>From Sandie After booking my 90-year-old mother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your mother need a rental car?"
Long ago, there lived an officer of the Royal Navy named Captain Bravado. He showed no fear when facing his enemies. One day, while sailing the Seven Seas, his lookout spotted a pirate ship approaching, and the crew became frantic. Captain Bravado bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!" The first mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, and while wearing the brightly colored frock, the Captain led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates. That evening, all the men sat around on the deck recounting the day's triumph. One of them asked the Captain, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before battle?" The captain replied, "If I were to be wounded in the attack, the shirt would not show my blood. Thus, you men would continue to fight, unafraid." All of the men sat and marveled at the courage of such a man. As dawn came the next morning, the lookout spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships approaching. The crew stared in worshipful silence at the captain and waited for his usual orders. Captain Bravado gazed with steely eyes upon the vast armada arrayed against his ship, and without fear, turned and calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants!"

A taxpayer received a strongly worded "second notice" that his taxes were overdue. Hastening to the collector's office, he paid his bill, saying apologetically that he had overlooked the first notice. "Oh," confided the collector with a smile, "we don't send out first notices. We have found that the second notices are more effective."
