You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what you're doing is work or play. --- Warren Beatty (1937 - ) Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering - and it's all over much too soon. --- Woody Allen (1935 - )
Thanks to Robert for this story: When I was young my intent was to go to medical school, but I was confused by the entrance exam. One of the questions was "Rearrange the letters "P N E S I" to spell out an important part of the human body that is more useful when erect." Those who spelled SPINE became doctors, the rest ended up in Congress.

A Catholic woman, a Protestant woman and a Jewish woman die and go to heaven. St. Peter meets them at the gate to heaven. The Catholic woman says, "I've been a good wife and mother, I took good care of my family and I want to go to heaven. St. Peter tells her to go to the left. The Protestant woman says, "I've been a good woman. I kept my house clean and cooked and took care of my family, and went to church every Sunday." St. Peter tells her to step to the left. The Jewish woman tells St. Peter," I've been a good woman, I made Shabbos every Friday, I went to the synagogue on the holidays and took care of my family." St. Peter tells her to step to the right. She immediately asks him, " Why did you tell me to go to the right and you told the other two women to go to the left?" St. Peter replies, "Don't you want to go to the beauty salon first?

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kathanna Culp, 28, Houston, TX Teacher jailed after complaining to principal about a former student not wanting to end a sexual relationship. Reported by The Weekly Vice Kathanna Culp, a 28-year-old teacher at Northbrook High School, has been arrested after she allegedly had a long-term sexual relationship with a student. According to police, an investigation began last December when Culp went to the school principal and claimed that she was being blackmailed by a former student who was threatening to expose their sexual relationship if she didn't pay him money. The student reportedly didn't want to end the relationship and demanded to be paid in lieu of "making a public announcement" of some kind. Culp, who earned a law degree from the University of Florida, has allegedly been engaged in a seven-month long relationship with the victim which began while he was still a student at the school. Investigators say Culp had sex with the former student multiple times at her apartment. Culp also allegedly hosted parties at her apartment and supplied her guests, some as young as 14, with alcohol and marijuana. Culp was fired from the school on December 14 shortly after going to the school principal with the alleged blackmail scheme. She was charged on March 19 after she reportedly confessed to having a sexual relationship with the former student. Culp was booked into jail and charged with improper relationship between educator and student. She was released after posting bail. Tech Support Pits From: David Re: Wipe old computer Dear Webby, A friend of mine is giving away her old computer. What is a good, quick, and easy way to errase all information on a hard drive without deleting the operating system? David Dear David Do a search for *.doc, *.wpd, *.qpw, *.xls, *.mbx, *.toc,*.txt, *.jpg, *.gif, etc. and delete those. Also delete all files in the Attachment and Embedded folder of the mail program. You can clean cookies and history with CrapCleaner or Spybot-Search&Destroy. Then, if you want, you can use Spybot to shred the files in the recycle bin. Sometimes, if you do have the original Windows CD, it's just as fast to format and re-install Windows, as it is to do a thorough job on cleaning a drive. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Baking Soda for Gas Spills For gas can spills in the car, wipe up as much as you can then generously sprinkle baking soda over the spill. Leave overnight (or two days) then sweep away or vacuum. Soaks up the gas and the smell! By Kelli Be careful when you vacuum that! Your vacuum can easily turn into a flame thrower! Point it's exhaust away from people, buildings and vehicles. A much better solution is Sorb-All or any similar product with a different name. Sorb-All is made from bentonite, a type of clay, that instantly absorbs gas and oil, and renders it pretty well impossible to ignite. It is also the active ingredient in kitty-litter. You can get Sorb-All at automotive parts suppliers, Home Depot and many harwared stores. It is very cheap and very light weight, and comes in huge bags. Even if they call it something different in your area, they will know what you mean, if you ask for Sorb-All to pick up oil or gas spills. Sorb-All is perfectly safe, amd does not hurt lawns or flowers or bushes, if you dump it onto them, but is so aggressive when it comes to oil and gas, it pulls years old oil stains out of concrete driveways. And above all, it is perfectly safe. It does not hurt your hands any more than clean playground sand or fresh kitty litter. A bag of Sorb-All fills three 5-gallon pails and if they are covered, will keep indefinitely in the garage or porch. I recommend dumping the bag into pails, because the paper will sooner or later get wet and weak, and you wind up with it in a messy pile. Sorb-All is NOT very effective on water, just on oil and gas. It will not keep the paper bag dry, if water drips on it or if it sits in a puddle. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com
If you are paying for your own hot water, this is for you! Solar Water Heat This is not some wacky scam, that claims to make all of your hot water all of the time, but a simple pre-heater, like I have been recommending since the 70's. When there is sunshine, you pre-heat the cold water with the sun, and use the electrical or gas heater to just top it off a bit to get the precise temperature, that you are used to. The bulk of the heating is done by the sun. I used that system even in the Yukon. It works. You don't need any fancy space age or hard to find components. For the glazing you can even use clear corrugated acrylic, plexi-glass, or old windiows. The glazing is never touched by the water, it just holds off the wind and acts like a flat mini-hot-house for the pipe and outer tank. Very fast payback for Solar Water Heat!

Thanks to Sandie for this tale: A city boy, Kenny, moved to the country and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey died." Kenny replied, "Well then, just give me my money back." The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already." Kenny said, "OK then, just unload the donkey." The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?" Kenny: "I'm going to raffle him off." Farmer: " You can't raffle off a dead donkey!" Kenny: "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he is dead." A month later the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?" Kenny: "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.00." Farmer: "Didn't anyone complain?" Kenny: "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back." Kenny grew up and eventually became a senator.

Paul came to work one day, limping something awful. One of his co-workers, Greg, noticed and asked Paul what happened. Paul replied, "Oh, nothing. It's just an old hockey injury that acts up once in a while." Greg, "Gee, I never knew you played hockey." Paul, "No I don't. I hurt it last year when I lost $100 on the Stanley Cup play-offs and put my foot through the television screen."
