I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to. --- Elvis Presley (1935 - 1977) "Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale, and undermine the military, are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or hanged." --- President Abraham Lincoln Why not all three? Iraq has good gallows technology and plenty of gallows.

A pastor is walking down the street one day when he notices a very small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the boy is very small and the doorbell is too high for him to reach. After watching the boys efforts for some time, the pastor steps smartly across the street, walks up behind the little fellow and, placing his hand kindly on the child's shoulder leans over and gives the doorbell a solid ring. Crouching down to the child's level, the pastor smiles benevolently and asks, "And now what, my little man?" To which the boy replies, "Now we run like hell!"

The old man had died. A wonderful funeral was in progress and the country preacher talked at length of the good traits of the deceased; what an honest man he was, what a loving husband and kind father he had been. The widow, meanwhile was ever so slightly shaking her head, as she intently listened to the preacher's words. Finally, the widow leaned over and whispered to one of her children: "Erica, honey, go on up there and take a look in the coffin and see if that's your pa in there."

Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Exzadrian Oneal Jefferson, 23, Dallas, Texas Man who shot and killed his partner in crime during botched robbery Maybe we don’t need firearms to protect ourselves from criminals. That is, as long as we get more thugs like Exzadrian Oneal Jefferson who shot and killed his friend as they attempted an armed robbery on Sunday. Jefferson and his partner in crime, known only as Brightmon, were living Obama’s dream at 4:00 am in Dallas, TX. Empowered by the president’s equality push, they decided to bypass Congress and speed up the redistribution of wealth process by liberating some funds from the “haves.” This being the wee hours of the morning there weren’t too many overly privileged individuals milling about so they settled on a trio of persons drinking alcohol in a parking lot. The two modern day Robin Hoods approached the group of drinkers. Brightmon pulled out his gun and pulled the trigger. At this point, this seems less like an attempted robbery and more like an attempted murder, but who am I to argue semantics? In any case, the gun failed to fire. At this point, the three drunks bum rushed the would-be robbers and started beating the hell out of them. In the melee, Jefferson gained control of the gun, which had been miraculously restored to functioning condition. He fired off a shot, hitting his homeboy Brightmon center mass right in the chest. Brightmon would later die at the hospital, no doubt thinking that they should have spent more time on the planning stage of their big heist. Jefferson fled the scene in a panic, but after several hours of introspection, decided that maybe crime is not what he was meant to do. He thought about his four burglary convictions, his theft conviction, his marijuana possession conviction and his trespassing conviction. Then he considered how his probation was revoked on a felony robbery case and his pending felony drug and theft charges. All by the age of 23! Realizing that he shot and killed his friend in one of the worst robbery attempts ever was enough to convince Jefferson that his chosen vocation was a mistake. Later on Sunday, he walked into a Dallas police station and turned himself in where he was charged with murder. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Weird characters in email A good morning Webby, A day without Webby's newsletter is not a good day. I enjoy the humor and also often in need of tech support. Two questions today on my Eudora. First, there are some emails that come to me and some of the punctuation marks don't show but may have other "stuff" instead. Example Sable CreekĂ‚ Golf Course, Inc. Ă‚ This only happens once in a while, not sure what to do about it. Might there be a setting that needs changed? Second questions, once in a while I get this screen and the Eudora is "frozen" for a short while. Jim Dear Jim That "stuff" is called Microslop, and is due to somebody sending mail from within Microsoft WORD. They use cutesy punctuation marks like the wacky left and right leaning quote marks. They show when THEY print the stuff, but any other times it coems out as Microslop. There is nothing you can do about it, except pity the dumb sloppers, whose emails appear sloppy, no matter who they write to. They COULD change a setting in their WORD, but that would require reading the instructions. Question #2 is due to a fragmented hard drive and too long access times. Use Defraggler, a cousin of CrapCleaner. The first time it will take a long time to defrag the entire drive, so let it run while you are away. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Don't Water Down Summer Drinks During the summer, I make my own ice cubs out of tea, lemonade, and leftover fruits and juices. I then use them in ice tea or fruit drinks instead of ice cubes made from water. As they melt, it makes your drink more flavorful instead of getting watery. My favorite is fruit bits and juices added to ice tea. Makes good peach tea, raspberry tea, cherry tea and more. By April [171] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

An American tourist refused to be too greatly impressed with the masterpieces at the Louvre. "We've got plenty of priceless canvasses in the United States too," he declared. "I know," said the guide. "Rembrandt painted seven hundred pictures in his lifetime, and America has over ten thousand of them."
I was killing time waiting for a friend and browsing in a souvenir shop at the mall entrance, when the man next to me struck up a conversation. Just as he was telling me that his wife was getting carried away with her shopping, a brief power shortage caused the lights to flicker overhead. "Ah," he sighed that must he her checking out now."
