We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. --- Plato
Thanks to dteeple for nringing back this classic: Ever since i was a child, I've always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him: 'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.' 'Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink. 'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears..' 'How much do you charge?' 'Eighty dollars per visit,' replied the doctor. 'I'll sleep on it,' I said.. Six months later the doctor met me on the street. 'Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked. 'Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup!' 'Is that so!' With a bit of an attitude he said, 'and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?' 'He told me to cut the legs off the bed! - Ain't nobody under there now!!!'
Thabnks to Kim for this story: The orthopedic surgeon I work for was moving to a new office, and his staff was helping transport many of the items. I sat the display skeleton in the front of my car, his bony arm across the back of my seat. I hadn't considered the drive across town. At one traffic light, the stares of the people in the car beside me became obvious, and I looked across and explained, "I'm delivering him to my doctor's office." The other driver leaned out of his window. "I hate to tell you, lady," he said, "but I think it's too late!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tish Coleman, 31, Chicago, Ill Jailed After Stabbing Cousin's Cat To Death Following Family Spat Tish Coleman, a 31-year-old Chicago female, was jailed Friday after she allegedly stabbed her cousin's cat to death. According to police, Coleman and her 26-year-old cousin were arguing Friday night when Coleman allegedly punched her cousin in the face and tore her shirt. The cousin wrestled Coleman out onto the apartment's patio and slammed the door shut, however, Coleman continued to antagonize her cousin by creating a disturbance outside the residence, according to an arrest affidavit. A short time later, another woman entered the apartment through the patio area - which allowed the victim's cat to run outside. When the victim went outside to look for her cat, she discovered the animal laying on a nearby stairwell with multiple stab wounds. After police were called, officers located Coleman about a block away from her cousin's apartment. During a search, officers recovered a bloody Swiss pocket knife from Coleman's purse. Coleman was booked into jail and charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal and domestic battery. Her bond has been set at $75,000. Tech Support Pits From: Kay Re: Small Calendar Dear Webby, Good morning, hope all is well with you. I was just checking your tool page looking for a very small calendar to put on my desk top. I didn't see one and was wondering if there is a site you would recommend download one? Thank you for all of your help. Kay Dear Kay On the Tools page look for Rainlendar It is some ways down, because I had that link for probably a dozen or more years. If you use FireFox hit CTRL F and type Rain and it will find and highlight it. When you run it the first time, close all other windows. It IS quite small, and EXTREMELY polite. In the d efault configuration, when not in use, or moused over, it fades into the background, and you won't see it. There are tons of options in it, that you can set to your preferences. Just don't reduce the "Transparency" to less than 50%, otherwise you won't be able to see it on some backgrounds. Leave the "MouseOver" at 100% and don't reduce "Transparency" too much. That way it will fade to almost invisible when not in use, but come alive when moused over. And set it to be "On Top" Like that example, you can personalize it any which way, and even have a number of "skins" to choose from. I use the default skin, which is basically like glass. You see the writing on top of totally transparent glass, and it will float on top of whatever window is open in that area. You can drag it around, of course, but it is just a calendar floating on top. Windoze 7 tried to copy that trick, but just managed to annoy people. Rainlendar has a ToDo and an Events part. Birthdays and Anniversaries go into the Events part. If some part of Rainlendar annoys you, go into the options and change it. You CAN. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Plastic Water Cups out of Soda Bottles I have been taking the soda bottles, the little ones, and removing the cap, squeezing them down, and cutting across the top. Then I smooth out the top by cutting it again. This provides me with a lot of plastic drinking cups that are stronger than paper cups and they are larger, and they won't break. We have been enjoying them a great deal! By Robyn Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com

By the time the sailor pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere," he pleaded with a proprietor, "or just a bed, I don't care where." "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant -- an Air Force guy," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you." "No problem," the tired Navy man assured him, "I'll take it." The next morning the sailor came down to breakfast bright- eyed and bushy-tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better." The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring?" "Nope, I shut him up in no time," said the Navy guy. "How'd you manage that?" asked the manager. "He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," the sailor explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, and said, 'Goodnight, beautiful,' and he sat up all night watching me."

Following some duty overseas, the officers at the Fort were planning a welcome home party and dance for the unit. Being an all male combat force, they decided to request coeds from some of the surrounding colleges to attend. The Captain called Vassar and was assured by the Dean that arrangements could be made to send over a dozen of their most trustworthy students. The Captain hesitated, then said, "Would it also be possible to send a dozen or so of the other kind ?"
