Good Morning,  !

Today is Monday, November 18.

It was sunny looking today, but with ice needles and 
drift snow in the air. I shortened my walk quite 
drastically.

Have FUN!

You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in. --- Arlo Guthrie (1947 - ) Where we have strong emotions, we're liable to fool ourselves. --- Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996) (And he sure did, especially with the ice-age scare, that he is famous for.) If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get. --- Frank A.

Linda got lost in her car in a snow storm. She remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get lost in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it." Pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got lost in the snow, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, now you can follow me over to K-Mart"
About a year ago a friend, who lives in Virginia, was talking with her four year old son, Brent. He was asking her why all their relatives from Wisconsin talk funny and sound like their noses are plugged up. "They think we have an accent," she replied. "But they have an accent, right?", Brent asked. "They talk funny?" "Everybody talks in different ways" she tried to explain. "To them, we sound like we talk very slow and all our words are d-r-a-w-n out." His eyes got big, and he whispered seriously, "Oh, no. You mean they hear funny too?"

From Georgina: I was nervous the night my husband and I brought our kids to an upscale restaurant for the first time. My husband ordered a bottle of wine with the meal. When the waitress brought it, our children became quiet as she began the ritual uncorking. When she poured a small amount for my husband to taste, our six-year-old piped up, "Mom can drink a LOT more than dad!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jade Cullen, 26, Stroudsburg, PA Jailed After Hiding Third Party Urine Inside Her Vagina During Meet With Probation Officer Reported by The Weekly Vice Jade Cullen, a 26-year-old Pennsylvania woman, was jailed Monday after she allegedly hid another person's urine inside her vagina during a drug screen. According to the Montroe County Sheriff's Office, Cullen was reporting for a drug screen at the Monroe County Courthouse Monday when her probation officer noticed that she was fidgeting with something in between her legs. Further examination revealed that Cullen was hiding a condom inside her vagina filled with another person's urine. Cullen later admitted that she attempted to fake the urine test because she had snorted heroin earlier in the month. Cullen was ordered to meet with a probation officer and submit to random drug screens when she was released last May. She was booked into the Monroe County Correctional Facility and charged with possession of an instrument of a crime and failure to furnish drug free urine. She is also accused of violating her parole. Tech Support Pits From: Larry Re: Windows browser update notice Dear Webby, My computer keeps telling me that my Windows 7 browser is going to be outdated and I need to install a new browser. Is this for real? If I do it, will I lose all my “Favorites”. What should I do? Dear Larry All browsers get updated quite regularly and frequently. However, they identify themselves, for example FireFox update to version 25 If the update notice claims to be "Windows 7 browser" like you wrote, then that is from a virus. If you suspect that the update notice is not legit, click in your browser on HELP ABOUT Check For Updates or on MENU HELP ABOUT Check For Updates And do your updating from there, not from the suspicious notice. Usually browser updates are not an urgent matter, and it is often best to skip full number updates and wait for a .1 number fix. With legitimate updates your bookmarks and favorites and cookies are quite safe. They won't be touched. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Oil of Cloves for Smelly Front Loading Washers If your front loading washing machine smells a bit musty or has black mould growing on the door seal, simply use oil of cloves to freshen it up. I make up a 500ml bottle of water in a spray bottle and add 1/4 teaspoon oil of cloves. Then I spray the inside drum of the machine before I add the clothes or, if I'm feeling lazy, I add 3-4 drops oil of cloves on top of my detergent. The oil of cloves will kill any mould spores. If you use the spray every time you do towels or smelly socks, it will also get rid of mould on your door seals. The black mould will disappear. The smell dissipates from your clothes when you hang them in sunlight but, in any case, it's not too strong a smell. Plus you'll know that if your kids leave wet clothes for a couple of days before telling you about them you'll be able to make sure they're truly clean and mould free. Oil of cloves should be available at pharmacies or sometimes health food stores with the essential oils. Source: Spotless by Shannon Lush and Jennifer Fleming A few decades ago a good girlfriend got me used to tossing a few whole cloves into every drawer, no matter whether it was a sock drawer or kitchen utensil drawer or a drawer in my workshop. Never had black mold in any drawer! Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A three-year-old in the congregation regularly watched football games with his father. So much so, that he knew some of the signals the referee makes. On a recent Sunday, as the pastor raised his hands high to offer a blessing, the child interrupted the service by shouting at the top of his lungs: "Touchdown!"

>From Dana The turkey shot out of the oven and rocketed into the air, it knocked every plate off the table and partly demolished a chair. It ricocheted into a corner and burst with a deafening boom, then splattered all over the kitchen, completely obscuring the room. It stuck to the walls and the windows, it totally coated the floor, there was turkey attached to the ceiling, where there'd never been turkey before. It blanketed every appliance, it smeared every saucer and bowl, there wasn't a way I could stop it, that turkey was out of control. I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure, and thought with chagrin as I mopped, that I'd never again stuff a turkey with popcorn that hadn't been popped.
