Get all the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything. --- Frank Dane Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor. --- Robert Frost (1874 - 1963) Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new. --- Henry David Thoreau
Leola Starling of Ribrock, Tenn., had a serious telephone problem. But unlike most people she did something about it. The brand-new $10 million Ribrock Plaza Motel opened nearby and had acquired almost the same telephone number as Leola. From the moment the motel opened, Leola was besieged by calls not for her. Since she had the same phone number for years, she felt that she had a case to persuade the motel management to change its number. Naturally, the management refused claiming that it could not change its stationery. The phone company was not helpful, either. A number was a number, and just because a customer was getting someone else's calls 24 hours a day didn't make it responsible. After her pleas fell on deaf ears, Leola decided to take matters into her own hands. At 9 o'clock the phone rang. Someone from Memphis was calling the motel and asked for a room for the following Tuesday. Leola said, "No problem. How many nights?" A few hours later Dallas checked in. A secretary wanted a suite with two bedrooms for a week. Emboldened, Leola said the Presidential Suite on the 10th floor was available for $600 a night. The secretary said that she would take it and asked if the hotel wanted a deposit. "No, that won't be necessary," Leola said. "We trust you." The next day was a busy one for Leola. In the morning, she booked an electric appliance manufacturers' convention for Memorial Day weekend, a college prom and a reunion of the 82nd Airborne veterans from World War II. She turned on her answering machine during lunchtime so that she could watch a famous trial, but her biggest challenge came in the afternoon when a mother called to book the ballroom for her daughter's wedding in June. Leola assured the woman that it would be no problem and asked if she would be providing the flowers or did she want the hotel to take care of it. The mother said that she would prefer the hotel to handle the floral arrangements. Then the question of valet parking came up. Once again Leola was helpful. "There's no charge for valet parking, but we always recommend that the client tips the drivers." Within a few months, the Ribrock Plaza Motel was a disaster area. People kept showing up for weddings, bar mitzvahs, and Sweet Sixteen parties and were all told there were no such events. Leola had her final revenge when she read in the local paper that the motel might go bankrupt. Her phone rang, and an executive from Marriott said, "We're prepared to offer you $2 Million for the motel." Leola replied. "We'll take it, but only if you change the telephone number."

During an annual psychiatrists convention, three psychiatrists take a walk. "People are always coming to us with their guilt and fears," Kathryn says, "but we have no one to go to with our problems. Since we're all professionals, why don't we hear each other out right now?" They agree that this is a good idea. Robert, the first psychiartrist confesses, "I'm a compulsive shopper and deeply in debt, so I overbill patients as often as I can." The second, Kane, admits, "I have a drug problem that's out of control, and I frequently pressure my patients into buying illegal drugs for me." The third psychiatrist, Kathryn says, "I know it's wrong, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't keep a secret."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tamika Williams, 28, Orlando, Floriduh Crashed Car, Threw Baby, Punched Officer A Florida woman involved in a car crash last week is accused of throwing her 2-year-old daughter at a cop and punching a different cop in the head. Tamika Williams, 28, hit a tree, rolled over and crashed into a fence in her SUV at around 11:55 p.m. Friday, according to a police report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. The Orlando woman allegedly tried to flee the scene with her toddler in tow. When police tried to stop her, she threw the girl at an officer, "forcing me to catch the baby," he wrote in a report. He didn't fumble the pass. Next, she allegedly punched another officer in the head, then kept hitting her until the other officer used a stun gun on her. Williams is charged with child neglect, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and leaving the scene of an accident. She's not the first mom to be accused of throwing a baby. In April, a Connecticut bus passenger was allegedly caught on camera tossing her child to the side before attacking a fellow passenger she claimed "disrespected her in front of her baby."

Also happy that others contributed to your letter and kept it going. Can you tell me where the gorgeous picture in Today's Newsletter is? We are having cold rain here in Alabama. Snow usually stays North of here. Keep well and have nice Holidays.

The name of the picture, if you save it to your computer, is Tallulah-Gorge-Georgia-L.jpg The name tells you that it is the Tallulah Gorge in Georgia and that it is the Large version. By going after the same name, but without the L, you get the small version, that is more convenient to put into your own emails: http://webby.com/humor/i/Tallulah-Gorge ...

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Hand Soap In the days of counting pennies, this will help if you buy the hand soap pumps like I do. Once that pump is empty, I make my own for pennies using 1 Tbsp. dish soap (any kind will do), and 1 tsp. of bleach. Fill slowly with water and shake gently. You have a great hand soap that kills germs for pennies, compared to buying new pumps or the refills for them. By leigh harvey Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A young man was having some money problems, and needed $200 to get his car fixed and road-worthy again, but had run out of people to borrow from. So, he calls his parents via the operator, and reverses the charge and says to his dad, "I need to borrow two hundred dollars." At the other end, his father says, "Sorry, I can't hear you, son, I think there may be a bad line." The boy shouts, "Two hundred. I need two hundred dollars!" "Sorry, I still can't hear you clearly," says his father. The operator cuts in, "Sorry to butt in, but I can hear him perfectly." The father says, "Oh, good. Then YOU can send him some money!" Click
