It is a curious thing... that every creed promises a paradise which will be absolutely uninhabitable for anyone of civilized taste. --- Evelyn Waugh (1903 - 1966) History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon. --- Napoleon Bonaparte History is the version of past events that the winners have decided to agree upon. --- Dwight D Eisenhower
With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65 year old woman has a baby. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of their family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65 year old mother says "not yet." A little later they ask again to see the baby. Again the mother says "not yet." Finally they say, "When can we see the baby?" And the mother says, "When the baby cries." They all ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?" The new mother says, "because I forgot where I put it."
A man and a woman are driving down the highway when another car passes them. The woman notices that the occupants of the other car are young and obviously in love. The girl is sitting very close to her boyfriend as they cruise on down the highway. This causes the woman to think back when she and her husband were young and in love, and wondering where the show of affection had disappeared to over the years. Finally she says to her husband, "Remember when we used to be like that young couple? Where did the love go, honey?" Her question was met with a few moments of silence. Then, after glancing at his gnarled hands on the steering wheel he quietly replied, "I haven't moved."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Vinod Adhikary, 30, Manassas, Va. Breaking Into Hotel Room And Ordering Room Service at 2 am Those late night hunger pains can really gnaw at one's gut, but who wants to cook at that hour? Not Vinod Adhikary, who police say broke into a room at the Old Town Inn in Manassas, Va., on Wednesday -- just to order room service. Employees called the police after getting a room service request after 2 a.m. from Adhikary. They nixed the order when they realized he dialed from a room that wasn't booked for the night, and sent the cops instead Cops came to the Inn and charged Adhikary, 30, with unlawful entry and public intoxication. Tech Support Pits From: Betty Re: Shadow on fonts Hi Webby, this is 10 AM this morning, then the sun came out & a lovely warm day! Rains coming soon tho. I just noticed today, that look at the shadows of everything? parts in the picture, past it & even my typing??? What unlucky button did I find to create that? or how can I get rid of it? I hope you can please give me a clue, only thing I had to do yesterday was update Adobe??? Thanks for any help. TC, Betty Dear Betty I have never come across anything, that causes shadows on it's own. When I make shadows on text in the names under mug shots, that is a deliberate trick in PSP. Other than that, I don't know of anything that causes shadows on text. It would seem that either the video card or the monitor has a severe problem. Can you try a different monitor on that machine? Good Luck! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Nail Polish Remover for Ink on Vinyl Couch I got ball point pen on a beige vinyl couch. I tried everything to get it out; stain remover for pen, alcohol, bleach, toothpaste, WD40, Soft Scrub and none of them worked. I read that nail polish remover works, but I was afraid to use it. I did a test on the underneath and, sure enough, it did not hurt the vinyl and took most of the ink out. There is just a slight stain left, you really have to look for it. Be sure and do a test first. By Sue Gurney [1] http://www. thriftyfun.com/

A man was wheeling himself frantically down the hall of the hospital in his wheelchair, just before his operation. A nurse stopped him and asked, "What's the matter?" He said, "I heard the nurse say, 'It's a very simple operation, don't worry, I'm sure it will be all right.'" "She was just trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?" "She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor!"
Friend: "I suppose you carry a memento of some sort in that locket of yours?" Woman: "Yes, it's a lock of my husband's hair." Friend: "But your husband is still alive." Woman: "I know, but his hair is gone."
