Good Morning,  !
Today is Saturday, February 23

Back in the saddle again!
This time there was no pain, just irritation and blurred
vision after the shots, and the next ones are not until 
April 3.

Dad told me that the European media are all hysterical about
horse meat in their hamburgers, even Canadian horse meat.
The funny thing is, those gullible Euros all think that 
both horses in Canada are doped up like Lance Armstrong,
and that their kids might turn into athletes.

The simple souls don't realize that Canada has Millions 
of horses, and none of them are doped up. The cowboys 
definitely don't spend money on dope for company horses,
and the rest of the horses are owned by families, who 
consider it fashionalbe to have few horses, and who
have them boarded somewhere, so that they can go for a
leisurely trail ride a few times a year. A full gallop
would scare the pants off most of them, and they complain
all year long about the vet bills for the necessary shots
and vitamins. They most definitely are not interested in
any costly dope.

The funny thing is, cattle in Europe is now recorded from
birth to supermarket, just like cattle in North America,
but many farmers there dope their cattle fiercely, so that 
they put on more weight quicker. They call them "Turbo-Cows",

I remember how they walked the cattle to "Alps", grazing 
areas in the mountains, up above the tree line. And in fall,
walked them down into the valley again. With the "Turbo Cows"
they can't do that any more. Partly because they are too 
heavy to walk that far, partly because their owners are 
worried the cows might lose some weight from that long walk. 
So they built or improved the roads up there and are now 
hauling the Turbo Cows up and down with cattle trucks, or 
leave them in stalls in the valley.

Meat from doped up Turbo Cows is quite acceptable in Europe, 
but meat from healthy free range horses in Canada freaks 
them out. Horses are like Holy Cows to them.

On the other hand, they eat Bambies. Young deer.
They breed deer in captivity and somehow got the knack of
getting them to have half a dozen bambies. They feed them
up with corn and dope and lettuce for a year, and then
sell the meat for big money. 

But the thought of meat from Canadian free range horses 
freaks them out. Must be the dope from the Turbo Cows!

Have FUN!

A nun was sitting at a window in her convent one day when she was handed a letter from home. Upon opening it a $50 bill dropped out. She was most pleased at receiving the gift from her home folks, but as she read the letter her attention was distracted by the actions of a shabbily dressed stranger who was leaning against a post in front of the convent. She couldn't get him off her mind and thinking that he might be in financial difficulties. She took the $50 bill and wrapped it in a piece of paper, on which she had written, "Don't despair, Sister Eulalia." She threw it out of the window to him. He picked it up, read it, looked at her with a puzzled expression, tipped his hat and went off down the street. The next day she was in her room saying her prayers when she was told that a man was at her door who insisted on seeing her. She went down and found the shabbily dressed stranger waiting for her. Without saying a word he handed her a roll of bills. When she asked what the bills were for he replied, "That's the four-hundred bucks you have coming. Don't Despair paid 7-1."
Good old classic! A man was sued by a woman for defamation of character. She charged that he had called her a pig. The man was found guilty and fined. After the trial he asked the judge, "This means that I cannot call Mrs. Johnson a pig?" The judge said that was true. "Does this mean I cannot call a pig Mrs. Johnson?" the man asked. The judge replied that he could indeed call a pig Mrs. Johnson with no fear of legal action. The man looked directly at Mrs. Johnson and said, "Good afternoon, Mrs. Johnson."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ronald Howard, 30, Mnatee County, Florida Jailed for bad manners and assault Ronald Howard was sitting on the couch “scratching his balls” yesterday when his girlfriend told him to cease the scratching “because it was rude and disgusting and she was about to eat dinner,” police report. Howard, 30, reportedly rose from the couch in the Florida home he shares with Shalamar Petrarca and confronted her. Howard, seen in the above mug shot, allegedly got in the 25-year-old Petrarca’s face and yelled at her to “stop judging him.” Petrarca told Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies that Howard then pushed her to the ground--causing a scraped ankle--and then “threw her outside and told her to get the hell out.” In an interview with investigators, Howard claimed that Petrarca punched him in the eye for “scratching his balls.” He added that he pushed her out of their residence “in self defense,” adding that he did not call cops because he “didn’t want it to go that far.” While Howard did not have any visible injuries, Petrarca, seen at left, had “a scratch on her leg that was consistent with her version of events.” Howard was arrested for misdemeanor battery and booked into the Manatee County jail. Bail has not been set. If he gets bail, it will most likely include an order to stay away from Petrarca and their shared residence. Howard is scheduled for a March 21 court appearance. Interesting how Petrarca achieves a "concerned" appearance by painting fake eyebrows tilted 45 degrees up from where her shaved off eyebrows would have been. One way to look "concerned" without furrowing that immaculate brow. Mr Howard has to actually raise his eyebrows to achieve that well practised "exasperated and hard done by" look. Tech Support Pits From: Mia Re: Permanent ads Dear Webby I hope your eyes have recovered from the injections! I would freak out if someone was going to poke needles into my eyeballs! They would have to knock me out and better not wake me up for a few days! That was quite interesting about the ads. What about ads in the side margin, that you have kept for years, like "Find A Human", which I use quite often, or the Translator, or the NASA gallery, Sky Watch, the Hunger Site and the Mammogram girls, just to mention a few. Somehow I doubt that any of those ever pay you even a penny. What's the story with those? Mia Dear Mia You are right. Those ads don't pay me at all. Those are "Public Service", just a favor from me. Just "paying it forward", or "banking good Karma", whatever you might call it. I know you proabbly COULD find those links on your own in a few hours of searching, but a lot of people find them handy to have them all in one place. Since enough subscribers DO like them there, I will keep the right side side-menu. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Safety Pin to Eliminate Static Cling The natural way to fix static cling is to pin a small safety pin to the seam of the slip you are wearing. It acts like a grounding device. It eliminates the static cling in your dress. If you wear slacks, then place the safety pin in the seam of your slacks, to keep static off of your panty hose when wearing them under slacks. I just found this out from the internet.

Seems an elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased you can hear again." To which the gentleman said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will five times so far!"

There once was a Preacher that went to heaven. (In jokes that CAN happen!) When he got to the pearly gates, there was a man in front of him. The man was a mess (dirty t-shirt, holes in his jeans, long hair, and wearing flip flops). The man told St Peter his name and told him he was a New York taxi driver. St Peter looked up his name and gave him a silk robe and a silver staff with built in juke box and police scanner. The Preacher then walked up to St Peter gave his name. He told him he was a Preacher of such & such church. St Peter looked up his name and gave him a short, hospital style cotton robe with rear draft and a plain wooden stick. The Preacher complained and said " Hey, the guy before me was a taxi driver and you gave him a silk robe and a silver staff. I'm a preacher of the word of God and all I got was this flimsy cotton robe and a dumb wooden stick." St Peter said to the Preacher, "When you preached people slept, When he drove people prayed."
