What's the Heirloom Christmas Book about?

It is a BIG e-book with all the stories, that your great
grandmother recited or read to your grandmother, when she
was a kid. I want these stories preserved.

You may know what it is about, when somebody mentions
"bittersweet love like in 'The Gift Of The Magi',"
but with today's education, your kids or even their teachers,
probably don't know. So I collected these classics and put
them all together into one e-book.

This book of Christmas Stories is a cultural treasure, that should
be passed on to our descendants. Since it is in e-book format,
you can put it onto a CD for each kid, and fill the rest of the
CD with family pictures and other keepsakes,
making it a true heirloom.

I have produced a smaller version last year. This final
edition has more stories and illustrations, but I kept the
price down to the same $10.

The Heirloom Christmas Book also makes a nice
Christmas gift!

>From Mina This guy drives up to his house and where he parks is full of snow. So he parks in a nearby parking lot and walks back home to shovel out a car-sized space in front of his house. It takes hours to shovel, but finally done, he walks back to the lot to get his car. When he returns home, he finds that the space has been taken by some other car. He is, well, upset. What most people do is write nasty notes etc. and place them on the windshield of the offending vehicle. Police sometimes get involved however, when the individual vents his wrath in somewhat more violent means. Tires and throats have been slashed over this. This guy decides to get creative. Instead of doing the usual nasty, he got out his garden hose and watered the automobile down, real well. I mean, very, very thoroughly. Inside too! He pried open a side window wide enough to get the hose inside. The water of course froze solid. In between hosing the inside, he worked dilligently on the outside. When the owner returned, instead of a car, he found a mini-bus sized Popsicle. There was no note incriminating anybody.
My friend's husband is always telling her that housekeeping would be a snap if only she would organize her time better. Recently he had a chance to put his theory into practice while his wife was away. When I popped in one evening to see how he was managing, and he crowed, "I made a cake, frosted it, washed the kitchen windows, cleaned all the cupboards, scrubbed the kitchen floor, walls and ceiling and even had a bath." I was about to concede that perhaps he was a better manager than his wife, when he added sheepishly, "When I was making the chocolate frosting, I forgot to turn off the mixer before taking the beaters out of the bowl, so I had to do all the rest."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Alain Cassagnol, 19, from long Island, now in an SC jail Seriously Speeding while carrying dope DECEMBER 23--An unwise motorist was arrested early today after a traffic stop revealed that his Mercedes-Benz contained frankincense, myrrh, and marijuana, according to South Carolina police. Around 12:30 AM, Alain Cassagnol, 19, was spotted by a Myrtle Beach cop driving 103 mph in a 45 mph zone. Cassagnol was arrested for speeding after officers directed him to exit his car, a white 2014 Mercedes sedan. When Cassagnol stepped out of the Mercedes-Benz, cops detected a “strong odor of marijuana emanating from his person.” Asked if he was in possession of any narcotics, Cassagnol “stated yes and stated the drugs were in his pants by his groin.” An officer then retrieved a clear baggie containing 5.4 grams of pot. Investigators also seized a bottle of frankincense and myrrh incense spray from inside the vehicle. Known as “Blunt Block,” the product is usually used to mask the odor of burnt marijuana. Pictured in the above mug shot, Cassagnol was charged with speeding and marijuana possession. He is currently locked up in the Horry County jail on $649 bond. The teenager, who gave his home address as a Long Island residence, has several social media accounts peppered with pot references. Tech Support Pits From: Earl Re: What to do when a link freezes the computer? Dear Webby, Super great newsletter. I have a problem, a friend sent me a link which I clicked on and it locked up my computer. How can I unlock it? hope you can help I am running windows 7, it asked me if I want to allow windows to make a change on my computer and I unpluged it. I am sending this from another computer. Thanks Earl Dear Earl Let's hope you unplugged it fast enough. Until you plug it in again, there is no way to guess, if it got taken over by malware or not. Try it, and tell me what happened then. You can't do any fixing without turning it on anyway. Keep in mind, you are on Juno, which has pathetically slow and erratic connectivity. Quite possibly the link went to a site, that had a small but demanding video on it, and your browser just stalled. Especially if you use IE, that would appear as if the computer hit an iceberg and froze. Start up normally and run a thorough malware check with a reputable checker like McAfee. Once all seems OK, you can go on as if nothing has happened, but I would stay away from that link, while you are on Juno. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fixing Pre-Lit Christmas Tree Here is your solution. Find the non-removable bulb with the white socket. It is the last one on the strand, I believe the "non-replacable" white bulb exists only so that you have to buy a new tree ever four years. :( You will find that it's blackened or burned and causing your problem. Wiggle out the bulb, then dig out the socket with a pair of pliers. Be careful not to destroy the socket. Take your time, wiggle it loose. Stick any replacement bulb into that socket and, BAM, your tree will be perfect again! By DrFriedrichs Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Thanks to Bernice for this story: My daughter called me at work to say I was to phone Ian at my bank. The operator asked me what Ian's last name was and I explained that he hadn't left his surname. When she asked for his department, I said I didn't know. "There are 1500 employees in this building, ma'am," she advised me rather curtly. After a few more brusque comments, I asked her for her name. "Danielle," she said. "And your last name?" I asked. "Sorry," she replied, "we don't give out last names." "Fine!", I told her. "Tell Ian that if he doesn't call me in ten minutes I will blow his fu*****g ass off." and slammed the phone. He called in two minutes. ----------------------- Yeah, when a woman says "Fine!", men know there is going to be trouble.

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions. "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being . . . a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute property; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows . . ." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement and said, " I think it's a great idea. Of course I will help you choose a puppy dog."
A man was riding on a crowded bus, standing room only. The bus stopped and an elderly lady got on carrying a large picnic basket. She stood right in front of the man and grabbed the overhead rail so the picnic basket was above the man's head. Being a gentleman, he offered his seat to her. She quickly declined as she was only going a short distance. Soon the picnic basket began to leak. The man felt something drop on top of his head. As he looked up it hit beside his nose and ran down across his lips. He tasted it, looked up at the lady and asked, "Pickles?" She replied, "No, no, puppies."
