Late to bed and late to wake will keep you long on money and short on mistakes. --- Aaron McGruder, T "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." --- Edmund Burke "Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all -- the apathy of human beings." --- Helen Keller "The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." --- Albert Einstein
A patient was waiting nervously in the examination room of a famous specialist. "So who did you see before coming to me?" asked the important doctor. "My local General Practitioner, Dr. Cohen." "Your GP?" scoffed the doctor. "What a waste of time. Tell me, what sort of stupid and useless advice did Cohen give you?" "He told me to come and see you."
General Joe Whigham is ordered by the Secretary of Defense to gather together a Navy Lieutenant and Captains from the Army, Marine Corps and Air Force to discover why the services have trouble communicating with each other. He begins by saying that their first project task is to "secure" a certain building and asks each of them to go home and prepare a list of steps for the project management plan and bring them to the meeting the next morning. The Navy Lieutenant calls his Master Chief and says, "Tell those swabs to: -- Unplug the coffeepots -- Turn off the computers -- Turn out the lights -- Lock the doors and leave the building unoccupied The Army Captain has his list in his note pad: -- Assemble the company -- Appoint guard mount and Sergeant of the Guard -- Take control of all exits -- Make sure no one gets into the building without a pass The Marine Corps Captain writes down her steps on the palm of her hand: -- Assemble the platoon and supplies -- Approach the building along three axes -- Bring the building under mortar and SAW fire -- Assault the building under covering fire -- Sequester surviving prisoners -- Establish lanes of fire -- Prepare artillery calls -- Repel counterattacks The Air Force Captain types his list into his laptop: -- Contact real estate agent -- Negotiate 1-year lease -- Be sure to get option to buy

There was this preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance he could get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession. One Sunday was a picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was out, no clouds in the sky, and the temperature was just right. The preacher was in a quandary as to what to do, and shortly, the urge to play golf overcame him. He called an assistant to tell him that he was sick and could not do church, packed the car up, and drove three hours to a golf course where no one would recognize him. Happily, he began to play the course. An angel up above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed. He went to God and said, "Look at the preacher. He should be punished for what he is doing." God nodded in agreement. The preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball, and it sailed effortlessly through the air and landed right in the cup three hundred and fifty yards away. A picture perfect hole-in-one. He was amazed and excited. The angel was a little shocked. He turned to God and said, "Begging Your pardon, but I thought you were going to punish him?" God smiled. "Think about it -- who can he brag to?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Sean Lewis, 45, Daytona, Floriduh Mother calls deputies on son keeping gator in bathtub Reported by Helen A Deltona woman called deputies on her son after he didn't remove a baby alligator he kept in a bathtub in her home, Volusia deputies said. Sarah Boston said she asked her son to get the reptile out of the house, which he said he would do after a few days, but after several days the gator was still in the tub, so she called deputies to take it away, an arrest report shows. Sean Lewis 45, was arrested Monday and charged with alligator poaching. He is in the Volusia County Branch Jail on $2,500 bail, a booking officer said Tuesday. Deputies found the tub set up like an aquarium. It had water and inside the tub were two pieces of cinder block on which the alligator could climb to sun itself. An artificial light served as the sun, deputies said. Lewis told investigators a female friend dropped off the alligator at his place and was supposed to come back for it but did not, reports show. ----------- That'll teach him to obey ma! She is probably not going to bail him out until he gets a haircut. Tech Support Pits From: Randall Re: Game not working after Windows update Webby I have enjoyed your info for numerous years now and have always gotten a quick and helpful reply to any questions or problems i have had in the past. I bought a new computer game a couple of months back and have not had any problems installing it or playing it for months till i had a update last week and it would not(my laptop) would not let me sign in to the game. On the games websites forum page it said that the update was the cause of the problem and to just take the update off the list of updates. The person said that it was a problem with the way the update was written and it would always cause problems...So i went in the update list and changed my setting to let me know when the updates was available and which ones to install... The update number is KB2859537 dealing with security or the laptop i presume...was i told the whole truth and did i do the correct thing in changing my settings and not installing the above mentioned update. Again i anxiously await a reply to help me out with this new problem i am having. Thanks for the smile everyday. Randall Dear Randall The game peddlers lied to you. The updates went out to many Millions of people, without any problems. Windows WITH that update is the current and official Windows. Just your game can't handle it. Microsoft is not going to change Windows because of one game peddler, who can't cope with normal security. You can run without current security and use the game, or you can demand a game update, that can handle standard Windows updates. If enough people complain, they will fix their problem. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Turn Mugs Into Gift Candles A good way to use old mugs or even punch cups is to set a few cups on a tray, each one containing store bought votives (normally it takes two). Set the tray in the oven on 250 degrees F and let the candles melt. Remove one of the wicks and leave the other one. As the candle begins to cool, straighten the wick up into the center. There you have it. A lovely handmade gift for about a dollar! (Cups can be purchased at thrift shop most often for 25 cents or watch for them at rummage sales!) By melody_yesterday from Sedalia, MO Keep in mind that as the wax cools in cups, it often forms cavities, air bubbles. If you don't lance them with a hot nail, then you may have a fire bomb. When hot luid wax runs down into a hot air cavity,it often shoots a geysir of hot wax past the flame, where it ignites. Burning wax spraying around tends to turn a romantic setting into a disaster zone. It doesn't happen every time, but since you only die once, once is quite enough. Always lance the center of candles, stick the wick in then and pour hot wax into the hole made by your hot nail. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at http://www.myfrugallife.com
Bubba, an airline mechanic, was bragging to his boss one day, "you know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them." Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about Tom Cruise?" "Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door,and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!" Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was just lucky. "No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says. "Former President Bush", his boss quickly retorts. "Yep", Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Texas" and off they go. There Bush spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up." " Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced. After they leave Texas, he expresses his doubts to Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else. "The new Pope", his boss replies. "Sure!" says Bubba. "I've known the Pope a long time" So off they fly to Rome. Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." and he disappears into the crowd headed toward St. Peter's. Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his boss's side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?" His boss looks up and says, "I was doing just fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony, and then the Japanese tourist standing next to me asked, "Who's that on the balcony with Bubba?"

Matt went into Doc Steven's office for his annual checkup, and the Doc asked if there was anything unusual he should know about. That left it pretty wide open, so he told the Doc that he found it real strange how his suit must've shrunk just sitting in his closet, because it didn't fit when he went to get ready for a wedding recently. The Doc said, "Suits don't shrink just sittin' there. You probably just put on a few pounds, Matt." "That's just it, Doc, I know I haven't gained a single pound since the last time I wore it." "Well, then," said Doc, "You must have a case of Furniture Disease." "What in the world is Furniture Disease?" Matt asked. "Furniture Disease, Matt, is when you reach that stage in life when your chest starts slidin' down into your drawers."
