A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down. --- Robert Benchley (1889 - 1945)
During the minister's prayer one Sunday, there was a loud whistle from one of the back pews. Little Johnny's mother was horrified. She pinched him and told him to be silent. After church she asked, "Johnny, whatever made you do such a thing?" Little Johnny said quite honestly, "I asked God to teach me how to whistle and all of a sudden, He did!"
Unable to attend the funeral after his father died, a son who lived far away called his brother and told him, "Do something nice for Dad and send me the bill." Later, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. The next month, he got another bill for $200.00, which he also paid, figuring it was some incidental expense. Bills for $200.00 kept arriving every month, and finally the man called his brother again to find out what was going on. "Well," said the other brother, "You said to do something nice for Dad. So I rented him a tuxedo

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Owen Reese, 22, Sparta, Wisconsin Wisconsin bonehead menaces cub scouts selling popcorn door-to-door with a big sword A man wielding a large sword menaced a group of Cub Scouts who knocked on his door as they sought to sell popcorn in a fundraising drive, Wisconsin police report. After the children knocked on the door of his Sparta residence, Owen Reese, 22, “opened the door holding a sword above his head and immediately began yelling” at them, according to cops. While holding the sword over his head and “motioning like he was going to swing it at them,” Reese got within five feet of the Cub Scouts before they “escaped unharmed.” When cops arrived at Reese’s residence, he again answered the door “holding a sword with both hands at shoulder height.” He dropped the weapon when officers leveled their guns at him. A subsequent search of Reese’s home turned up “a large number of knives and swords, as well as marijuana and several smoking devices.” Reese was arrested for reckless endangerment and cited for “drug related offenses.” During questioning by Sparta Police Department cops, Reese explained that his sword wielding was commonplace: “Reese told officers he always answers the door with a sword to protect himself against religious people.” -------------- No need for a sword to chase away "religious people". A suggestive grin and slowly lowering my zipper does the trick quite nicely. Tech Support Pits From: Anita Re: Filter confusion Dear Webby, I am using Gmail as my spam filter. Yeah, I know I should get MailWasher, but right now $30 is not in the budget. I have made a ton of filters in Gmail, but they seem to get more unpredictable all the time. What could cause that? Anita Dear Anita The filters in Gmail are not nearly as robust or reliable or precise as those in MailWasher, but with some effort you can do simple filtering with Gmail. One thing to keep in mind is Precedence. If you have one filter OK-ing mail from or to an address, and then further down try to narrow that down, it does NOT work. Once a mail has been touched by a filter, it is gone to wherever the filter sends it to. Any further filters trying to narrow that down, won't even see that mail. It is already gone. With MailWasher you have all the regular expessions (and, or, if, if not, not, and not, but not, etc., etc.) With Gmail you can now use AND, and OR. To for examplpe dump all mail to a certain address except mails from PayPal OR from Gramma@aol.com, then you tell it to delete mail to that address, and put Paypal,Gramma@aol.com into the NOT slot. Just separate all the different exceptions with a comma. It takes a bit of getting used to it, but you get plenty of spam to experiment with. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Lemon-Cheesecake Pie There are three things I require in all of my recipes: quick, easy and good. I don't have any long, complicated, expensive-to-make recipes because, to me, that would take most of the joy out of cooking. Ingredients: 1 9 inch baked pie shell or one graham cracker crust, your choice 1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk ( or store brand, it's cheaper ) 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 (8 oz.) package any brand cream cheese, softened Directions: In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk until mixture is smooth. Stir in the 1/4 cup lemon juice and pour filling into prepared pie shell. Chill until set. May be topped with pie filling of your choice, whipped topping and thin lemon slices for garnish, or plain whipped topping, if desired, or leave plain. Enjoy.

A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee when she spotted a charming little farmhouse with a hand- lettered "For Sale" sign out front. After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the startled occupant, the agent cruised from room to room, opening closets and cupboards, testing faucets, and pointing out where a "new light fixture here and a little paint there" would help. Pleased with her assertiveness, the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her the listing. "Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement tips and all, but I think you read my sign wrong. It says, 'HORSE for sale.'"
The college football player knew his way around the locker room better than he did the library, so when my husband's co-worker saw the gridiron star roaming the stacks of books looking confused, she asked how she could help. "I have to read a play by Shakespeare," he said. "Which one?" she asked. He scanned the shelves and answered, "William."
