Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it. --- Andre Gide (1869 - 1951)
A classic from the Clinton era brought back by Noella: People often ask for a simple explanation of "Marketing". Well, here it is. You're a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, "I'm fantastic in bed." That's Direct Marketing. You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and, pointing at you, says, "She's fantastic in bed." That's Advertising. You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say, "Hi, I'm fantastic in bed." That's Telemarketing. You see a guy at a party; you straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, "May I?" and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast against his arm, and then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed." That's Public Relations. You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, "I hear you're fantastic in bed." That's Brand Recognition. You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend. That's a Sales Rep. Your friend can't satisfy him so she calls you. That's Tech Support. You're on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome men in all these houses you're passing, so you climb onto the roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs, "I'm fantastic in bed!" That's Facebook. You're at a party. This attractive older man walks up to you and grabs your behind. That's former President Bill Clinton. You like it, but twenty years later your attorney decides you were offended and you're awarded a settlement. That's America.
At the beginning of a children's sermon, one girl came up to the altar wearing a beautiful dress. As the children were sitting down around the pastor, the pastor leaned over and said to the girl, "That is a very pretty dress. Is it your Sunday dress?" The girl replied almost directly into the pastor's clip-on mike, "Yes . . and my mom says it's a sumanabitch to iron."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Clarence W. Hairston, 58, of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania DUI, Letting 8-Year-Old Steer Car If you're going to drink, don't pick a designated driver who can't get his learner's permit until 2022. A Pennsylvania DUI suspect is parked in a jail cell for letting his 8-year-old nephew steer the car. Clarence W. Hairston, 58, of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, was arrested Saturday afternoon after a police officer noticed a car being driven erratically. “The vehicle had stopped in the middle of the road and then was accelerating and braking. When it turned the corner onto Littlecroft, it struck a parked car," Delaware County Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told the Delco Times. When the officer walked over to the stalled car, he saw a man later identified as Hairston sitting in the driver’s seat holding a 25-ounce can of beer. Oh, and something else. "There was an 8-year-old boy on his lap steering the vehicle and another boy, a 9-year-old, in the back seat jumping around," Chitwood said. "When the car finally stopped, the little boys got out and the driver gets out with the can of beer in his hand.” The officer said Hairston allegedly fell twice while trying to get out of the car and claimed there was another empty 25-ounce Bud Ice can in the center console. After Hairston got out of the car, he allegedly continued drinking according to a police affidavit that alleged he was “unsteady on his feet,” had blood shot eyes, “slurred speech” and “stunk of an alcoholic beverage.” Hairston told the officer he "did nothing wrong” and “was only letting the kids go for a drive,” CBS Philly reports. He also claimed to be a Philadelphia cop and told the officer that “it’s not right to jam up another cop.” Police arrested Hairston and took him to a local hospital where he refused to take a Breathalyzer test. He was charged with driving under the influence, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment, permitting an unauthorized person to drive a car, and related crimes. Chitwood didn't mince words about his opinion of the suspect. "The guy is a total moron, it's the best way to describe him," he told 6ABC.com, adding that the neighborhood kids and cops have taken to calling the suspect "Uncle Drunk." Hairston is being held in the Delaware County jail on $15,000 bail Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Quicken 2005 on Win7? Dear Webby Unfortunately, I am forced to upgrade to Windows 7 because my Quicken 2005 has stopped working. Is there any other way to avoid the upgrade and still use Quicken 2005? Quicken 2014 is incompatible with my data. I looked at the Eudora D/L site and it says Runs on Microsoft Windows XP/2000. Will it work on Windows 7? Should I get 30 or 60 bit Windows 7? Thanks for all your help. Bill Dear Bill Have you tried exporting your data to Excel or CSV, uninstall Q2005, re-installing it and then importing the saved data? As I have mentioned, after 2500 updates since they released it, Windows 7 is now quite OK. Nothing to be worried or concerned over any more. Industry and commerce still won't switch, because their programs work fine with XP. There is no real, legitimate reason why you shouldn't be able to still use Quicken 1995, but they have always put land mines in, forcing users to buy new versions every few years. Personally, if I were you, I would try to install Q2005 onto a Windows7 machine and see if it works. Most likely it will. There has not been any change to databases since 2000. Eudora works just fine on Windows7. Download 6.2.5, install it, and copy over all your files from the Eudora directory. It will work and look just like on the old machines. I doubt that they still make 32 bit Windows 7. If anybody tries to sell one, it probably has an inch of dust on it. Get the current 64 bit version. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Using Shampoo and Conditioner as Body Wash Save the soap, people! Don't buy another bar of soap or container of liquid soap. I have found that the cheapest WalMart brand hair shampoo and conditioner combination work well. This is what I have experienced: While taking a shower, I start off using the shampoo/conditioner on my hair first. Then I rinse it off and rewash, only I don't rinse it out. I just continue with the shower and my loofah all soaped up with the shampoo. Rinse off top to bottom. You're soft and clean. By Judy T. from AZ I have been using that method for dozens of years. I use a pump action dispenser on a large family size bottle of shampoo/conditioner. Sometimes I just transfer the pumper onto a new large "refill" bottle. Occasionally those are even cheaper than those with pumpers. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

The young man entered the Ice Cream Palace and asked, "What kinds of ice cream do you have?" "Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry," the girl wheezed as she spoke, patted her chest and seemed unable to continue. "You got laryngitis?" the young man asked sympathetically. "Nope," she whispered,"just vanilla, chocolate and strawberry."
There was this party in the woods and all of a sudden there was a downpour of thunder and rain. These two young men ran for about 10 minutes in the pouring rain, finally reaching their car. They jumped in the car, started it up and punched the gas, laughing and, of course, still drinking one beer after the other. All of a sudden an old man's face appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly on the window! The passenger screamed out, "eeeeekkk! Look at my window!!! There's an old guy's face there!" (Was this a ghost?!?!?!?) This old man kept knocking, so the driver said "well open the window a little and ask him what he wants!" So the other passenger rolled his window down part way and said, scared out of his wits, "What do you want???" The old man sofly replied, "Do you have any tobacco?" The passenger , terrified, looked at the driver and said, "He wants tobacco!" "Well give him a cigarette! HURRY!!" the driver replies. So he fumbles around with the pack and hands the old man a cigarette and yells "Step on it!!", rolling up the window in terror. Now with the speedometer showing about 80 miles an hour, they calm down and they start laughing again, and the passenger says, "What do you think of that?" The driver says, "I don't know? How could that be? I am going pretty damn fast!" Then all of a sudden AGAIN there is a knock on the window and there is the old man again. "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa, there he is again!", the passenger screams. "Well, see what he wants now!" yells back the driver. He rolls down the window a little ways and shakely says "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asks. He throws a lighter out the window at him and rolls up the window and yells, "STEP ON IT!" They are now doing about 100 miles an hour and still guzzling beer, trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden again there is more knocking! "Oh my God! HE'S BACK!" He rolls down the window and screams out in sheer terror, "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" The old man gently replies, "Do you guys want some help getting out of the mud???"
