Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. --- Nikola Tesla (1857 - 1943), A liberal is a person whose interests aren't at stake at the moment. --- Willis Player
A New York man was forced to take a day off from work to appear for a minor traffic summons. He grew increasingly restless as he waited hour after endless hour for his case to be heard. When his name was called late in the afternoon, he stood before the judge, only to hear that court would be adjourned for the next day and he would have to return the next day. "What for?" he snapped at the judge. His honor, equally irked by a tedious day and sharp query roared, "Twenty dollars contempt of court. That's why!" Then, noticing the man checking his wallet, the judge relented. "That's all right. You don't have to pay now." The man replied, "I'm just seeing if I have enough for two more words."

The other day, I had no choice, I had to go to the emergency room. Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I went to the Army-Navy surpluse store, and bought some OD pants and a shirt. Then I sewed a couple of patches on which I grabbed from the internet. Stuck on my pilot sunglasses and was off! It was amazing how many people left as I walked in. I guess they suddenly decided they werent' that sick after all. Here is the patch that you can sew on your clothing if you are in need of reasonably prompt emergency service. You can order the ptches from Copshop.com

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Krystal Thomas, 23, Syracuse, N.Y. Jailed After Stabbing Toddler Son In Testicles During Argument With Child's Father Reported by The Weekly Vice Krystal Thomas, a 23-year-old New York woman, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly stabbed her 2-year-old son's testicles in retaliation for an argument she was having with the child's father. According to police, the incident began on Tuesday when Thomas and her boyfriend, Ron Craven, became engaged in an argument that began spiraling out of control. Craven decided to leave the residence for awhile, hoping that Thomas would calm down in his absence. When he returned to the house, however, he found Thomas "acting stranger than usual" while holding a butcher knife in her hand. Investigators say the couple began arguing again and continued to argue as Craven went outside into the driveway. That's when Thomas reportedly jumped into a vehicle and attempted to run Craven over. Craven was rolled onto the vehicle's hood as he tried to jump out of the way. Thomas backed up for a second run. During Thomas' second attempt, she struck the home's front porch and another vehicle before fleeing the scene. When Craven walked into the residence to check on their son, he found the boy bleeding heavily from the groin area. The boy was taken to an area hospital where it was discovered he had been stabbed in the testicles. The boy was treated for a two-inch stab wound and is expected to recover. When officers found Thomas the next day, she reportedly told them that she stabbed her son to "stop him from later multiplying," according to the arrest affidavit. She was booked into jail and charged with felony counts of assault, attempted assault and reckless endangerment. She remains held in lieu of $500,000 bond. Tech Support Pits From: Alice Re: Auto responder Dear Webby At first I was miffed at your reply, that sounded like you had preached the same thing too many times. Pardon me for not having been subscribed as long as others. Then I phoned my daughter, hoping she had a different explanation. Well, golly, she didn't. And she had me blacklisted! Not on purpose, but as you said, anything that smells like an auto- responder gets dumped and the sender blacklisted. Now I dumped my autoresponder, and the stupid book that recommended it. Thanks Alice Dear Alice Good for you! Autoresponders are only justified when they deliver requested information, like for example a price list, or weather update, or event schedule, or even race results when somebody sends a blank email to a certain address. Other than that, it's best to avoid them like the plague. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Raised Beds Using Cardboard Boxes This year I want to try raised beds in my garden, but I don't want to spend any money on purchasing the wood necessary to make them, plus all the work involved. So I came up with this idea - why not use cardboard boxes from the grocery stores? I plan on getting approximately 12 inch deep ones with sturdier sides. I think that they should hold up for one entire summer. I will let you know how I fare with them. If this works, I'll be so happy! By annelaundrie from Green Bay, WI Cardboard will just make a big mess. You can get "slabs", the sides of logs, for free from any sawmill. They will even cut them to 4 feet length, so that you can haul them on your bicycle or in a car. Hammer those slabs into the ground or bury the ends of them, and stomp the dirt on their side, so that you have a tight fence. Regular hay-wire ($5 / mile) strung from side to side will keep them from leaning out as you fill the beds. To fill raied beds to waist high, for easy planting, weeding, harvesting, the proper way is to start with heater stuff. Cardboard, roots from stumps, rotten wood, etc., stuff that will slowly decompose and provide spring and fall heat. Then on top of that put a layer of compost. That will provide nutrition and faster heat. Top it off with screened garden dirt. If you just want edging, up to a foot high, you can use slabs lengthwise, held in place with concrete re-bar hammered in, or even sticks hammered in to keep them in place. Peeled slabs look quite nice and after a few seasons turn silvery. They last 20 - 25 years. Some people paint them black to absorb more sun in spring, but because the wood is an insulator, that is a waste of time. If you want to plant earlier, put re-bar or plastic pipe hoops like on a covered wagon onto your raised beds and cover them with clear plastic. Make the ends so that they are easy to open, preferably with a string from your house, and put a large exterior thermometer into at least one of them. Even if the nights and mornings are below freezing, afternoons can make your raised bed hothouses way too hot for plants. That system with slabs and hooped plastic tunnel worked fine for me and others even in the Yukon. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com

A golfer, playing a round by himself, is about to tee off, when a salesman runs up to him and yells, "Wait! Before you tee off, I have something really amazing to show you!" The golfer, annoyed, says, "What is it?" "It's a special golf ball," says the salesman. "You can never lose it!" "Whattaya mean," scoffs the golfer, "you can never lose it? What if you hit it into the water?" "No problem," says the salesman. "It floats, and it detects where the shore is, and spins towards it." "Well, what if you hit it into the woods?" "Easy," says the salesman. "It emits a beeping sound, and you can find it with your eyes closed." "Okay," says the golfer, impressed. "But what if your round goes late and it gets dark?" "No problem, sir, this golf ball glows in the dark! I'm telling you, you can never lose this golf ball!" The golfer buys it at once. "Just one question," he says to the salesman. "Where did you get it?" "I found it."
