Humankind cannot stand very much reality. --- T. S. Eliot "The shortest distance between two points is under construction." --- Noelie Altito
A Scotsman was dying. On his deathbed, he looked up and said: "Is my wife here?" His wife replies: "Yes, dear, I'm here, next to you." The Scot goes: "Are my children here?" "Yes, daddy, we are all here." say the children. The Scot: "Are my other relatives also here?" And they say: "Yes, we are all here." The Scot sits up and roars: "Then why is the light on in the kitchen?"
While on leave, my Marine buddy and I met two nursing students from Southern California. After chatting them up awhile, the conversation turned to what we did in the service. When we told them we were in the infantry, the girls seemed very impressed, giving us big smiles as they told us how sweet that was. Since infantry and sweet are seldom used in the same sentence, I was a little confused. Until, that is, one of the girls said, "We admire any man who works with infants."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Antonio Flores Narcisso, 42, San Antonio, Texas Texan who stabbed roommate for being too loud during threesome, that did not involve him. Antonio Flores Narcisso, 42, allegedly stabbed his roommate for being too loud while having sex with two women. A man in San Antonio, Texas faces felony charges for allegedly stabbing his roommate numerous times for making too much noise while having sex. Antonio Flores Narcisso, 42, was arrested Tuesday and charged with burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit felony force for the attack that allegedly happened on May 8. The roommate was celebrating his 35th birthday by having sex with two women. According to the arrest warrant, Narcisso kicked down the roommate's door to complain about the boisterous cries of passion, MySanAntonio.com reports. When the roommate yelled at Narcisso to get out of the room, the suspect allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and proceeded to stab the alleged victim numerous times in the head, back and hands, CBS Houston reports. The roommate was taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries, according to the Sun News Network. Although both of the women were able to identify Narcisso by name from a photo lineup the night the alleged attack took place, he was only charged this week, according to KENS5.com. He is currently in the Bexar County jail. Tech Support Pits From: Helen Re: How do you dump old mail from Gmail? Dear Webby I am still using your trick with ` and 1 as hot-keys to select the 100 oldest and to dump them, but that is rather tedious and does not get done often enough. I get an awful lot of mail, and the INbox just gets bigger and bigger. There is no way to dump a year at a time, unless you figured a way. I hope you did, because Gmail and Google certainly don't respond. Thanks Helen Dear Helen There is no direct or simple way to dump old years. If you are reasonably comfortable with filters, then you can do it this way. Let's say you want to dump anything prior to 2012. Click on Settings, Settings, Filters, and at the bottom, Make new Filter. No, I don't know why they make that so klutzy. In there, use the category HAS THE WORDS and type in there before:2012/01/01 The date HAS to be in that format, or it won't work. After you hit Continue, checkmark that it should apply to found search results, and tell it to delete the found stuff. Then click Update, OK, and go do something else for a while. It will take a while, and in the meantime look like it did not work. Don't stare at it, just go do something else. In half an hour or so it will have dumped the mail from before 2012. Gmail will still show near it's limit. It counts the trash as your usage. Dump the trash and the spam, and you should have plenty of space again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Outdoor Movie Sleepover It's nothing big or small but invite a couple of your friends and have a party in your back yard. Just build a fire for marshmallows, get a projector and a white surface and have popcorn. Watch a movie outdoors and spend the night there. By destinee294 [1] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started: During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. "Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon,a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub." "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup." "No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
A man goes to a clinic early on a Monday morning and asks to see a doctor. He appears to be in great pain, and his hands are in bandages. The nurse looks at him sympathetically. "Arthritis, with complications?" she asks. "No," says the man. "Do-it-yourself, with concrete blocks." ---------- Believe it or not, doing dishes by hand, without gloves, will heal concrete sores faster than anything a doctor can prescribe.
