Good Morning,  !

Thank you, Gloria!

Today is Thurday,  September 11

Remember 9/11/2001
What were you doing, when you got the news?

We got a foot of heavy, wet snow overnight. The leaves are
still on the trees, so a lot of trees lost major branches 
or broke in half. Power lines w ere out until just a fter 

People were picking their way around tree parts on the road,
glancing suspiciously at still standing trees and planning
an escape route in case one of them decided to split or dump
snow. "Mahry Grimmace!" "So much fer Gullible Warming, eh!"
"Have not noticed any of that Gullible Warming. That is an
icy North wind!" "Where did all that @#%$&* snow come from? 
It's still summer!" 

Nobody seemed to be happy about the snow. Yesterday's two 
inches were shrugged off, but A FOOT last night, with trees
down and power off, that just caused cussing. 
Maybe we should not have gotten rid of the 70's muscle cars?

Have FUN!

God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh. --- Voltaire (1694 - 1778)
A sales clerk asked his boss how to handle people who complained about the current prices compared to the low prices in the good old days. "Just act surprised and tell them you didn't think that they were old enough to remember them."
After booking my 80-year-old grandmother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her special needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision to the point of near blindness. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your grandmother need a rental car?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gina Briggs, 26, Ormond Beach, Floriduh Florida Woman Points Gun At Lawn Worker Over Noise A Florida woman disturbed from slumber by routine grass maintenance is accused of pulling a pistol on a shocked landscaper, WKMG reports. Gina Briggs, 26, was arrested in Ormond Beach on Monday for her alleged overreaction. The victim was removing grass clippings from a sidewalk near her apartment at the time. Carlos Repicio, the victim landscaper, described the experience to WFTV. "I say, 'I got to work here.' She say, 'I don't care. You got to get out of here because I'm killing you.' And I say, 'What?' And she take the gun out and she point to me like that," said Repicio. Repicio hid behind his truck and called police, who arrived and arrested Briggs. The suspect later told police that she would have shot Repicio in the head, but, like a lawnmower missing a blade, she forgot to load the gun, according to WESH. Briggs is charged with carrying a concealed firearm and aggravated assault. She is being held at the Volusia County Jail. Tech Support Pits From: Juniper Re: Disappearing mails Dear Webby Lately I noticed that MailWasher will spool down a hundred or so mails, but then just show a listing of 15 - 20. What's the scoop? Should I be concerned? Juniper Dear Juniper That's just a sign that you are getting good with making filters. For example, if you made a filter that deletes mails automatically, if they contain the names of certain pharmaceuticals or watches or stock in the body of the mail, then MailWasher will count them, but it won't insult your eyes with that crap. Look at the pie chart at the end of the week to see what percentage of spam was nuked by different filters. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Coffee Body Scrub Do you suffer with dry skin, and lotion itself isn't doing the trick? I do and I can't afford to spend lots of $$ on scrubs that come in tiny containers. I recently found a body scrub online that's made from coffee and oils that I wanted to try, but the price is upwards of $30 a bag! I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own. I've been mixing my used coffee grounds, I like fine ground for consistency, and brown sugar together. It is the best scrub I've ever used! You can also mix in coconut oil, olive oil or whatever you have on hand. I follow up with my favorite lotion after I scrub in the shower or bath. It's a bit messy, but so worth it! I recommend refrigerating any leftovers and using the mixture within a week or so. By Bethany Curry [3] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

One day, a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," she replied. "What does it say on your shirt?" He yelled back, "Texas A & M."
A second grader came home from school and said to her mother, "Mom, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The mother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting," she said, "How do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
