The reason why so few good books are written is that so few people who can write know anything. --- Walter Bagehot (1826 - 1877) Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. --- Socratex
A little boy was digging for fishing bait in the garden with his father. He uncovered a creature with many legs and proudly held it up for his father to see. "No, son, he won't work for bait," his father said. "He's not an earthworm." "He's not?" the little boy said, his eyes wide. "What planet is he from?"
A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street. "But officer," the man said, "I can explain." "Just be quiet!!!" snapped the officer. "... or I'm going to let you cool off in jail until the chief gets back." "But officer, I just wanted to say ..." "And I said KEEP QUIET! Now you're going to jail!" A few hours later, the officer checked up on his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you that the chief's at his daughter's wedding. He'll be in a good mood when he gets back." "Don't count on it," said the man in the cell. "I'm the groom!"

An American journalist was stopped at a Russian Checkpoint in a suburb of Chechnya. The Russian soldier said, "Get out of the car and open the trunk!" The American replied, "I'm sorry, but the handbrake on the car is broken. I can't take my foot off the brake or it'll roll back down the hill." So the Russian says, "Do you take me for a FOOL?!" He pulls the American from the car, slides into the drivers seat, and stamping his big boot onto the brake pedal yells "Now, go and open the trunk!" So the journalist reluctantly complies with the soldiers request and goes and opens the trunk of the car. "Now", shouts the Russian from inside the car, "Is there any contraband in there?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Christie Black, 43, Bulls Gap, Tennessee Woman hospitalized to remove stolen $5,000 from rectum Reported by Wayne A theft charge is pending against a Hawkins County woman who allegedly stole $5,000 from her boyfriend and was then hospitalized for injuries suffered, when she attempted to remove the cash from her “hiding place by using a toilet brush and BBQ tongs.” Around 1 a.m. Tuesday, the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the home of Bobby Gulley, 249 North Ridge Road, Bulls Gap, on a complaint that his girlfriend was stealing from him. Gulley told HCSO Sgt. Michael Allen he’d “set a trap” for Christie Black, 43, also of that address, by placing two envelopes containing $4,000 and $1,000 in $100 bills in an old medicine bag. The medicine bag was then placed on a foosball table and Gully went to bed. Gulley said that when he woke up, he noticed Black was still awake, but the medicine bag and cash were missing. When Gulley confronted Black with the theft, Black reportedly vomited up a baggy containing partially dissolved pills. “He then asked her where the money was, and she admitted to him she’d wrapped it up and stuck it in her rectum,” Allen stated in his report. “Black admitted (to Allen) to taking the money and medication because Mr. Gulley was going to kick her out and she needed money for a place to live.” Sgt.Allen said Black attempted to remove the cash with a toilet brush and tongs but was unsuccessful. “She was bleeding severely and was transported to the Hawkins County (Memorial Hospital) emergency room,” Sgt.Allen said. “The wad of money was removed and collected as evidence.” An arrest warrant has been issued for Black charging her with theft over $1,000, but as of Thursday afternoon the warrant hadn’t been served because she is still hospitalized. As of Thursday afternoon, she remained listed in fair condition at Holston Valley Medical Center. Tech Support Pits From: Neil Re: Picture Compression Program Dear Webby Here is an image optimization program that works well, and is free http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/?ref=RIOT It gives you a side by side comparison of the image before and after. The re-sized image is saved separately so no changes to original image. It offers a variety of options and saves in different formats. It is capable of batch processing so the contents of a folder can take less time. It can work with RAW files from your camera, although that slows it down a bit. Neil Dear Neil Thank you for that link! RIOT looks like a very valuable tool, since it can process an entire folder in one shot. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Birthday Cupcake and Candle for Each Child When my kids were small, I noticed that at every birthday party all the kids would crowd around the cake to "help" the birthday girl/boy blow out their candles. So for my son's birthday I had a small birthday cake for the birthday boy and made a special cupcake for each child attending. Each cupcake was decorated with one candle and, with parents supervising, every child had a candle to blow out at the big moment. The kids were all excited to have their own special candle to blow out and no tears from the birthday boy because someone else had blown out his candles. I only wish I had thought of this years earlier! Source: Experience. The best of all possible teachers! By Chriself from Williamstown, NJ Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

My next-door neighbor and I frequently borrow things from each other. Not long ago, when I requested his ladder, he told me he had lent it to his son. Recalling a saying my grandmother used to repeat, I recited, "You should never lend anything to your kids, because you will never get it back." With that, he responded, "Tell you the truth, it's not even my ladder. It's my dad's."
