My husband gave me a necklace. It's fake. I requested fake. Maybe I'm paranoid, but in this day and age, I don't want something around my neck that's worth more than my head. --- Rita Rudner Where all think alike, no one thinks very much. --- Walter Lippmann The highest reward for man's toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it. --- John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
Some time back, my cousin, Steve moved to a new apartment. Steve had a business commitment out of town that weekend and so I and my three brothers all chipped in to help his wife move the furniture. The new apartment was on the third floor. We hauled everything up the three flights of stairs and around the tight corner through the kitchen put them where they belonged. Finally, we came to the large couch. After hauling it up three flights to the top of the stairs, we discovered it would not go around the corner through the kitchen. We took it back out into the hall and turned it and tried again. It still wouldn't fit. Finally all of us boosted the couch from the back of the truck up the side of the building. From the third floor, we passed the couch up and over the railing of the tiny balcony and in through the sliding doors into the living room. We all col- lapsed on the couch to catch our breath and made a pact that we would not tell Steve how we got the couch into the apart- ment. "The next time he moves," we conspired, "he will have to figure out how to get the couch out of there on his own. It will be our little secret. He will have to take a saw to it!" As luck would have it, Steve found a place he liked better about three months later. It really was a busy weekend at work, and none of us were available to help move. We waited eagerly to hear from Steve but there was nothing. Finally, after several days of waiting, I asked Steve, "So, did you get everything moved OK?" "Sure," he replied. "Did you run into any problems?" "No." "Now, wait a minute, we had to drag the couch up the outside of the building and haul it over the railing! How did you get it out of the living room? It didn't fit through the kitchen!" Steve looked at me with total disbelief and said, "Geez, you idiots! The legs unscrew!"
In one of the restrooms at City hall I saw this neatly printed sign posted over one of those hot air hand dryers. It read, "Please push button and listen to a short message from the President."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tina Rucker, 42, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Jailed After Strangling Boyfriend Because He Hogged Too Much Blanket Reported by The Weekly Vice Tina Berryhill Rucker, a 42-year-old Myrtle Beach woman, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly tried to strangle her live-in boyfriend because he was "hogging too much of the blanket". According to Myrtle Beach Police, officers were dispatched to the couple's residence around 11 p.m. after 911 operators received a complaint alleging domestic violence. When officers arrived on the scene, a man living at the residence told them that Rucker attacked and tried to choke him while they were in bed together. He explained that she became enraged when he unintentionally pulled too much of the blanket over to his side of the bed. Officers observed red marks, scratches and bleeding on the victim's neck, according to the arrest report. Investigators also noted that Rucker was intoxicated and became belligerent with officers when they placed her into custody. Rucker was booked into jail and charged with criminal domestic violence. She is currently being held without bond. Tech Support Pits From: Nancy Re: Camera Screen Goes Dark Dear Webby My digital camera screen goes dark or does not work in daylight outside, but works fine inside the house. Is there a setting for outside, to make it brighter? Nancy Dear Nancy Some of the better cameras have a monitor brihtness setting, but by default, that is always set to the brightest possible setting. It's not the camera, it's your eyes that adjust to the bright light outside. Compared to that, the screen appears black. You can get cheap glare shield funnels, or make one, but they are very klutzy and bulky. Professional fotographers have used a black cape to flip over the head and the camera for 200 years. They are still the best solution if your camera does not have a true through the lens optical viewfinder in addition to the screen. You don't need a lined velvet cape like the old time photographers needed to change plates. The thinnest silk you can find is best, so that you can fold it up small and stick it into one of those film containers that clip onto the camera strap. Your "cape" does not have to be as large as traditional ones. It just has to cover your head and the camera. I have seen photographers with small shoulder capes, just slightly larger than the soulder piece, that you would see on a sailor's uniform, that they could fip over their head by bending over and pointing their back to the wind.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Rubber Band To Keep Cut Apples Fresh Recycle the Heat From Your Oven If we have been using the oven during the winter or cooler months, we leave the oven door open after baking. The heat is turned off of course but my goodness, all the heat you can "recycle" by simply leaving the oven door open for a few minutes. I refer to it as "recycled heat" because we've just paid for it to cook/bake with and now we can use it for additional warmth to the kitchen area. You don't want to do this during the summer or hotter months because it will make your kitchen even hotter. However, during the cold winter months, it sure feels good to feel it rolling out of the oven. By Marsha from Greenville, NC The stove has small vents at the top and back to let the heat out. It does not stay in there until you bake again a week later, if you keep the door closed. Normally it is better to let the oven and the elements cool off slowly. They will last longer. You still get the same amount of heating for your kitchen, just slower. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com

A fire fighter is working on the engine outside the fire station when he notices a little girl next door in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides and a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle. The girl is wearing a fire fighter's helmet. The wagon is being pulled by her dog and her cat. The fire fighter walked over to take a closer look. "That sure is a nice fire truck" he said with admiration. "Thanks" the little girl said. The fire fighter looks a little closer and notices the girl has tied the wagon to her dog's collar and to the cat's testicles. "Little Partner", the fire fighter says, "I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar too, I think you could go faster." The little girl replies thoughtfully, "You're probably right, but then I wouldn't have a siren"

A man wakes up one morning to find a gorilla on his roof. So he googles and sure enough, there's a site for "Gorilla Removers" in his area. He calls the number, and the gorilla remover says he'll be over in 30 minutes. The gorilla remover arrives, and gets out of his van. He's got a ladder, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a mean old pit bull. "What are you going to do", the homeowner asks? "I'm going to put this ladder up against the roof, then I'm going to go up there and knock the gorilla off the roof with this baseball bat. When the gorilla falls off, the pit bull is trained to grab his testicles and not let go. The gorilla will then be subdued enough for me to put him in the cage in the back of the van." So the guy puts the ladder up, gets the bat and the shotgun and walks towards the ladder. As he gets to the base of the ladder, he hands the shotgun to the homeowner. "What's the shotgun for?" asks the homeowner. "If the gorilla knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog!"
