A billion here, a billion there pretty soon it adds up to real money. --- Senator Everett Dirksen (1896-1969) "ABC News says Americans spend $300 billion every year on games of chance, and that doesn't even include weddings and elections." --- Argus Hamilton
>From Dianne I went into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church. Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates Then the priest comes in. I say to him, "Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be." He replies: " Get out, you moron, you're on my side. "
An old guy went to his doctor and said, "Doc, I think I'm getting senile. Several times lately, I have forgotten to zip up." "That's not senility," replied the doctor. "Senility is when you forget to zip down...."
A priest, a pastor, and a rabbi are walking down the street on a hot day and are quite thirsty. They pass a busy bar and want to go in and get a drink but have no money. But the priest comes up with an idea that he thinks might work, so he goes in alone, telling to others that if his idea works they can all get free drinks. He orders his drink, and when he's finished with it, the bartender gives him his tab. The priest says, "But son,... I already paid for the drink!" The bartender says, "I'm terribly sorry father but it's really busy in here and I must have forgotten." The priest goes out and tells the pastor and the rabbi what happened, so the pastor goes in next. The pastor orders his drink and then informs the bartender that he already had paid when the bartender asks him for the money. Again the bartender apologizes. Finally the rabbi goes in and orders his drink. Again the bartender gives him the tab and the rabbi tells him, "Son, I paid you when I ordered the drink." "I'm terribly sorry rabbi," says the bartender, "I don't know what's wrong with me, but your the third man of the cloth that I've done this to." "I'm sorry son," says the rabbi, "but I'm in a terrible hurry. Just give me my change for the $20 I gave you, and I'll be on my way."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Desmond Ty’Quan Gray, 22, Spartanburg, Florida Ex-Boyfriend Stole Her "Obama Phone" During Tussle A South Carolina woman told police yesterday that her former boyfriend stole her “Obama phone” during a confrontation yesterday morning, according to an incident report. Tasha Mallory, 29, said that she was on her phone when Desmond Ty’Quan Gray, 22, “entered her apartment uninvited” Monday morning and “began to ask her who she was on the phone with.” Mallory and Gray “are not dating but have one child in common,” cops noted. According to Mallory, Gray tried to grab her phone, but she held it close to her chest “so Mr. Gray could not get to it.” Gray, Mallory alleged, then pushed her to the floor, bit her shoulder, and scratched her arm. He also allegedly wrested her Obama phone away and then fled the residence in a green vehicle. “Ms. Mallory described the cell phone as an ‘Obama phone,’” (free phone provided by Welfare) according to a Spartanburg Police Department report. While talking with cops, Mallory pulled out a “second cell phone that she had” and showed text messages from Gray “stating that he did not want the relationship to end.” Police subsequently sought to locate Gray for questioning, but were unsuccessful (they planned to consult with a judge about the incident). Gray, seen in the above mug shot, has prior arrests for drug possession, shoplifting, domestic violence, attempted burglary, and peeping, according to court records. Tech Support Pits From: Beverly Re: Yahoo censoring Actioncat cards Thanks. I clicked on the link and rec'd the actioncat card. I also had a phone call from a friend that I had sent an actioncat card to who also has a yahoo email address. She didn't get it. When I do an actioncat card, if I write down the number it assigns for pickup and email that to friends, would they be able to follow a link to actioncat.com and insert the card number to view the card? Again, thanks for your suggestions. Beverly Dear Beverly Yes, if you send the pick-up number to other yahoos, then they can pick it up quite easily. It's just the emails to their victims, that Yahoo censors. As far as I know, they are not censoring web sites. Just tell your friends to get a respectable email address on the side. Protonmail and Gmail are free. They don't have to give up their Yahoo mail and groups and stuff. They simply get reliable email on the side. Have FUN! DearWebby

A loaded minivan pulled in to the only remaining campsite. Four children leapt from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear and setting up the tent. The boys rushed to gather firewood, while the girls and their mother set up the camp stove and cooking utensils. A nearby camper marveled to the youngsters' father, "That, sir, is some awesome display of teamwork." The father replied, "I have a system; no one goes to the bathroom until the camp is set up."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Discolored Coffee Cups I have trouble with my coffee cups and mugs becoming discolored because my husband drinks lots of coffee. All I have to do to take out the stains is to let them soak in a a sink full of water with a about 1/4 cup bleach added. Just be sure to rinse them well. Works great!

The following was overheard at a recent high society party... "My ancestry goes all the way back to Alexander the Great," said one lady. She then turned to a second woman and asked, "How far does your family go back?" "I don't know," was the reply. "All of our records were lost in the flood."
A Statistician, a Biologist and a Physicist are sitting in a street cafe watching people going in and coming out of the house on the other side of the street. First they see two people going into the house. Time passes. After a while they notice three persons coming out of the house. The Physicist says: "The measurement wasn't accurate." The Biologist concludes: "They have reproduced." The Statistician says: "Now if another person enters the house, it'll be empty again."
