Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them. --- Lily Tomlin (1939 - ) ______________________________________________________ Working as a secretary at an international airport, my sister had an office adjacent to the room where security temporarily holds suspects. One day security officers were questioning a man when they were suddenly called away on another emergency. To the horror of my sister and her colleagues, the man was left alone in the unlocked room. After a few minutes, the door opened and he began to walk out. Summoning up her courage, one of the secretaries barked, "Get back in there, and don't you DARE come out until you're told!" The man scuttled back inside and slammed the door. When the security people returned, the women reported what had happened. Without a word, an officer walked into the room and released one very frightened telephone repairman. ______________________________________________________ A minister who was very fond of pure, hot horseradish always kept a bottle of it on his dining room table. He offered some to a guest, who took a big spoonful. When the guest finally was able to speak, he gasped, "I've heard many ministers preach hellfire, but you are the first one I've met who passed out a sample of it." ______________________________________________________ A couple were being given a guided tour of Pico da Bandeira, one of the highest mountains in the Americas. Their guide pointed out where a young couple, petrified by lava, had been discovered. They had died in the act of making love. "How awful !" exclaimed the wife. "Si, but what a great way to spend eternity." added the guide. "They probably died from the smoke and did not feel the lava." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Jean for this picture Click through for the large picture Milky Way over Devils Tower ______________________________________________________

Deborah Delane Asher, 37, Laurel County, Kentucky Kentucky woman wearing 'I Love Crystal Meth' shirt arrested, for meth A Kentucky woman arrested on meth charges while wearing an "I love crystal meth" t-shirt now has one very ironic mugshot for her records. Deborah Delane Asher, 37, was busted on Tuesday for alleged trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of methamphetamine, according to Fox-17. Richard Jeffrey Rice, 57, was also charged in the case. "The arrests were the result of a drug investigation conducted there after deputies located 2 subjects in possession of 3.37 grams of crystal meth and a set of digital scales," police in Laurel County said.
Tech Support Pits From: Ellis Re: Best browser Dear Webby! I am getting fed up with IE. Which browser do you recommend? Ellis Dear Ellis I UNinstalled IE years ago, and use Chrome for regular work and FireFox for Internet Radio in the background. FireFox works well for slow and leisurely browsing, and for Internet Radio. You can leave that on for days without resetting the browser. It is not that good for hectic searching, especially if the pages have flash ads on the side. (Small movies for ads) Chrome does not like those either and will eventually bung up, but tolerates that kind of stuff a little bit better. Safari is great for reading e-books or long texts, but not really for much else. If you do a fair bit of reading, then get Safari as a spare browser. Not as your main browser, because it doesn't seem to be able to cope with a lot of hectic pages, but is a great reader. Both FireFox and Chrome have pretty good recovery from a crash, and usually re-open all your previously open tabs. With Chrome there is also Session-Buddy, a marvellous Add-On, that tracks your sessions like a properly organized History. Highly recommended! Have FUN! DearWebby

"Watch out," the wife cautioned her husband, who was driving. "Don't you see that car is braking?" Then she snapped, "Don't pass that truck, his tire is wobbling." The husband turned on his CB and informed the trucker about his loose wheel. The wife, in a nasty mood because of a headache, was irritated by the incessant squealing of the CB. "Why do you always get so much static?" she asked. "Because," her long-suffering husband replied, "I'm married."

______________________________________________________ A young doctor had just opened office and felt really excited. His secretary told him a man was here to see him. The young doctor told her to send him in. Pretending to be a busy doctor, he picked up the phone just as the man came in. "Yes, that's right. The fee is $200. Yes, I'll expect you ten past two. Alright. No later. I'm a very busy man." He hung up and turned to the man waiting. "May I help you?" "No," said the man, "I just came in to install the phone...." ______________________________________________________ Lori, the pert and pretty Nurse took her troubles to a resident psychiatrist in the hospital where she worked. "Doctor, you must help me." she pleaded. "It's gotten so that every time I date one of the young doctors here, I end up in bed with him. And then afterward, I feel guilty and depressed for a week." "I see." nodded the psychiatrist. "And you, no doubt, want me to strengthen your will power and resolve in this matter." "For God's sake, NO!" exclaimed the Nurse. "I want you to fix it so I won't feel guilty and depressed afterward."
