Laughing at our mistakes can lengthen our own life. Laughing at someone else's can shorten it. --- Cullen Hightower ______________________________________________________ A woman gets onto a bus with her baby. The bus driver says, "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!" The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, "The driver just insulted me!" The man says, "There's no call for that. You go right up there and tell him off. Go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you." Some day, after the swelling goes down, he will be able to see again. ______________________________________________________ A police officer pulls over a car load of nuns.... Officer: "Sister, this is a 65 MPH highway -- why are you going so slow?" Sister: "Sir, I saw a lot of signs that said 22, not 65." Officer: "Oh Sister, that's not the speed limit. That's the name of the highway you're on!" Sister: "Oh! Silly me! Thanks for letting me know. I'll be more careful." At this point the officer looks in the back seat where the other nuns are shaking and trembling. Officer: "Excuse me, Sister, what's wrong with your friends back there? They're shaking something terrible." Sister: "Oh, we just got off of highway 119." Officer: "Ten miles ahead is the 401. The speed limit there is 65, not 401. We DO have jets that go that fast. They will shoot you down if they catch you doing 401." ---- The #401 has been renamed since then to the "Highway of Heroes" to commemorate the soldiers who died in Afghanistan and were repatriated on that highway. ______________________________________________________ Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this ....true story. A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small new England town where Paul Newman and his family often visited. One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone. She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor. There was only one other patron in the store. Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee. The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes. With a slow smile, the actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely. Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three grown children, you're fifty years old, not a teenager! The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction. When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty. Where's my ice cream cone? Oh for heavens sake did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something. No ice cream cone was in sight. With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman. His face broke into his familiar warm friendly grin and he said to the woman, "You put it in your purse." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Dawn for this picture Click through for the large picture ______________________________________________________

Stephen Ramsey, 45, Naples, Florida Florida man arrested for calling 911 to ask dispatcher for a date Stephen Ramsey, 45, is accused of calling 911 to ask for a date. Not being able to find a date might seem like an emergency, but it's not a reason to call 911. Case in point: Stephen Ramsey, 45, of Naples, Florida was arrested Tuesday after allegedly calling 911 three times and asking the dispatcher if she was interested on going on a date, WZVN TV reports. For the record, she wasn't. Still, Ramsey kept her on the phone for more than six minutes and asked her if she was "into handcuffs," the Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. He then laughed before finally hanging up the phone. A deputy was sent to the suspect's home. Ramsey allegedly told him he was "looking for a date or escort service to help him pass the time." The officer said Ramsey was "slurring his speech heavily" and had a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath," according to Fox4Now.com. Ramsey was charged with misuse of 911 and is currently in the Collier County Jail on $2,000 bond.
Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Wireless broadband Internet Dear Webby! Dear Webby. I love your humor. I've told many of your jokes to many people. Thanks for sharing them & your pics. I was asked by a friend if there was any wireless internet service she could check into that did not require a land phone line. I believe she uses a cell phone only & does not have cable tv either. I told her I would ask someone who would probably know. Your tech dept has been a lot of help. Sharon Dear Sharon Verizon and a few others have a cell modem. It works slightly better than dial-up, but everybody I know that uses it, hates it. They consider it an emergency measure until they can get back to DSL or cable. Then there is Wireless High Speed Internet in some areas. Some towns have it, but most don't. Many rural areas in Canada have it, but in the US, most don't have it. A lot of businesses in both the US and Canada and many parts of Europe have WiFi, which is basically just a home network with a bit of extra muscle. Most hotels and motels have it by now, also most hamburger joints and coffee shops. Tell her to search online for what is available in HER area. Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly Jewish man is sitting on a park bench reading Louis Farrakhan's newspaper. His best friend walks by, sees the paper, and stops - in shock. "What are you doing reading that paper?" he says. "You should be reading the 'Jewish Journal'!" The elderly man replies, "The Jewish Journal has stories about anti-Semitism, problems in Israel - all kinds troubles of the Jewish people. I like to read about good news." His friend gasps, "WHAT good news could possibly be in that paper???" "Well, Farrakhan's paper says the Jews have all the money, the Jews control the banks, the Jews control the press, the Jews control Hollywood -- see? All *good* news it is!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Privacy Window Using Contact Paper I decided that I didn't want to use curtains on our bathroom window so I was trying to find an alternative. I looked at the window films that they sell and didn't like how expensive they were. So instead, I purchased a roll of contact paper and cut out shapes that nested together. I did just the lower half of the window to allow light in. The neat part is that clear contact paper actually appears frosted on glass. I absolutely love it! Approximate Time: 2-3 hours By lalala... [495] Complete instructions For about the same price you can get liquid stained glass at all the better craft stores. They have plain colors and many different frostings, that produce actual 3D raised profiles. They also have liquid "lead", which is actually just a silicone in a needle tip squeeze tube. You mark the divisions with anything, that writes on glass. Then run a bead of the "lead" along your traces, and let it dry a few minutes. After that, pour color into each division, and add a drop of frosting, if desired. Done. You can do a window in 5 minutes, not counting time spent dreaming up a design. You can practise on plexiglass, and if your plexiglass is the right size, just snap it onto your window. You can have seasonal stained glass inserts and just change them now and then. From a few feet away you can not tell whether there is actually cut pieces of stained glass leaded together, or liquid stained glass. Just get a few colors and play! You can also practise on unused mirrors. You HAVE to lay them flat for pouring the colors and let them dry a few minutes. Have FUN!

The first lady says, "You know girls, I have known you all a long time and there is something I must get off my chest. I am a Kleptomaniac. But, don't worry, I have never stolen from you and I never will; we have been friends for too long." The second lady says, "Well, since we are having true confessions here, I must get something off my chest too. I am a Nymphomaniac. But don't worry, I have not hit on your husbands. They don't interest me and never will; we have been friends for too long." "Well," says the third lady, "I, too, must confess something. I am a Lesbian. But do not worry, I will not hit on you. You are not my type. We have been friends too long for me to ruin our friendship." The fourth lady stands up, says, "I have a confession to make also. I am an uncontrollable gossip, and I have some phone calls to make!" ______________________________________________________ A little girl was playing quietly while her mom and another lady friend were talking. The little girl let out a big fart. Her mother said "What do you say Suzy?", expecting the reply, "Excuse me." What she said instead was "Watch out, here comes another one!"
