>From Clyde I enjoyed the joke about Natchitoches! I grew up in Natchitoches and left in 1942 when I enlisted in the U. S. Army Air Corps at age 18. Natchitoches is pronounced Nak-a-tish! You should try some Natcitoches Meat Pies~~really delicious! You can get the recipe on Google or Yahoo. Natchitoches is the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase ~~1714.
A well-off young man is moving from apartment to another a few streets away. Observing with dismay the carefree way in which the moving crew yanks his cherished antiques about, he decides he'll carry a tall grandfather's clock, which he prizes highly. Taking the clock in his arms he starts for the new house. But the clock is as tall as its owner and heavy, so he has to put it down every few feet to rest his arms and mop his brow. Then he clutches the clock again and staggers on. He's nearly at the new house when a drunk, who's been watching the fellow struggle, calls out to him. "Mischter," he says thickly, "can I ash you a quest'n?" "What is it?" the exhausted young man says. "Why the heck don'shou carry a watsch?"
A father attends a PTA meeting where the principal explains that the school's sex education classes are to begin soon and urges the parents to have some basic discussions with their kids at home first. The father had given his older boy a "birds and bees" talk two years before and wants to spare himself the ordeal again. When he gets home, he calls the boy into the study and asks him to give his younger brother the instruction he had been given two years before. The boy agrees and rushes off to talk with his younger brother. "Hey, bro," he says, "want to know something?" "What?" the younger lad asks. "You know how a man and a woman get together when they want to have kids?" "Yeah?" "Well, Dad wants me to tell you that birds and bees and flowers do the same thing."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Lourenco, 53, Cumberland, RI FOUR DUI crashes in 30 hours John Lourenco, 53, crashed four vehicles while driving drunk -- three into other vehicles and one into a tree, police said. After leaving the hospital following one of the crashes, Lourenco even got behind the wheel of a dump truck and crashed it too. The first three crashes occurred in Cumberland, while the fourth happened in Providence. Lourenco faces charges of reckless driving, refusing a breathalyzer, driving under the influence and driving without evidence of insurance. Some reports say he had a DUI last year and probably no drivers license. He was released from custody on $25,000 bail. Many news services reported about Loureco's crashes and DUIs, but NO news service has a mug shot of Lourenco. He must have some incredibly good connections. Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: Animations in email Dear Webby, If you copy an animated picture and paste it to email, why won't it go to the animated feature? daniel Dear Daniel That depends on the email program you use. Some work, some don't. Usually web based email programs like Thunderbird or Gmail display animations, text based programs like Outlook Express usually don't, Older programs like Eudora show the animation when receiving, but not while composing a mail. Animations always work when shown on a web page, like for example this one: BRB You can always just put the URL into your email or chat. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Use fewer chocolate chips I pay a small fortune for my allergen free chocolate chips. I also snack on them. One day when I needed to bake, I realized I only had about 1/4 of a bag left. I took a leap and used that in the cookies. They were fantastic and no one noticed the "scant" amount of chips. Soon I was taking my newly-purchased bags and dividing them up into 1/3 cup portions, putting them into plastic sandwich-sized bags and then storing them in my chocolate drawer. Yes, chocoholic that I am, I actually have a chocolate drawer. I get 4 (or more) portions per bag, as each bag has about 1 1/3 cups of chips in them, whether my allergen free ones OR the usual dairy-loaded ones we all grew up on. My only fear about sharing this frugal tip has been that once the manufacturers get wind of this they will begin selling them in 1/3 cup bags for the same outrageous price I have to pay now, about $5.59 per bag! So now I have enough chips for anything I must bake and I can more easily swallow (pun intended) and justify the stiff price I pay for a bag. Give it a try. Make a batch of your usual, using only 1/3 cup of your chips (on the QT) and see if anyone complains or compliments. But, please, keep this tip hush-hush!

>From Lillemor An Arab Sheik was admitted to Hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a very rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so the call went out. Finally, a Scotsman was located who had the same blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab. The Arab sent the Scotsman, as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds & $100,000, happy that his surgery could now go ahead. A couple of months later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card and a box of Quality Street chocolates. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not repeat his previous kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money, but you only gave me a thank-you card and a box of Quality Street .." To this the Arab replied: "Aye, laddie, but I now have Scottish blood in me veins."
A little boy comes home from the playground with a bloody nose, a black eye and torn clothing. It is obvious he was in a bad fight and he lost. While his father is patching him up, he asks his son what happened. "Well, Dad," says the boy, "I challenged a kid at school to a duel, and I gave him his choice of weapons." "Uh-huh," says the father, "that seems fair." "I know, but I never thought he'd choose his big sister!"
