Good Morning, ,

Today is Tuesday, November 11
Veterans Day, Remembrance Day

At 11:00 play this:
A Pittance of time

They fought and some died for their homeland
They fought and some died now itís our land
Look at his little child, thereís no fear in her eyes
Could he not show respect for other dads who have died?

Take two minutes, would you mind?
Itís a pittance of time
For the boys and the girls who went over
In peace may they rest, may we never forget why they died.
Itís a pittance of time

God forgive me for wanting to strike him
Give me strength so as not to be like him
My heart pounds in my breast, fingers pressed to my lips
My throat wants to bawl out, my tongue barely resists

But two minutes I will bide
Itís a pittance of time
For the boys and the girls who went over
In peace may they rest, may we never forget why they died.
Itís a pittance of time

Read the letters and poems of the heroes at home
They have casualties, battles, and fears of their own
Thereís a price to be paid if you go, if you stay
Freedom is fought for and won in numerous ways

Take two minutes would you mind?
Itís a pittance of time
For the boys and the girls all over
May we never forget our young become vets
At the end of the line itís a pittance of time

It takes courage to fight in your own war
It takes courage to fight someone elseís war
Our peacekeepers tell of their own living hell
They bring hope to foreign lands that the hatemongers canít kill.

Take two minutes, would you mind?
Itís a pittance of time
For the boys and the girls who go over
In peacetime our best still don battle dress
And lay their lives on the line.
Itís a pittance of time

In Peace may they rest, lest we forget why they died.
Take a pittance of time

If that plays rough at 11:00, it is because Millions are 
playing it, and Millions more are listening to it, when 
stores, factories and offices play it for the 2 minutes
of silence at 11:00. If you want to play it at your business,
save it beforehand and then play the saved version at 11:00.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.

Have FUN!

Imagination is more important than knowledge... --- Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Thomas Jefferson once said, 'We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.' And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying. --- Ronald Reagan ______________________________________________________ One day, Uncle Joe got fired from his construction job. His nephew asked him what happened. "You know what a foreman is?" he asked. "The one who stands around and watches the other men work?" "What's that got to do with it?" he asked. "Well, he just got jealous of me," Uncle Joe explained. "Everyone thought I was the foreman." ______________________________________________________ A big-game hunter went on safari with his wife and mother-in- law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the Mrs awoke to find her mother gone. Rushing to her husband, she insisted on them both trying to find her mother. The hunter picked up his rifle, took a swig of whiskey, and started to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother-in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large male lion stood facing her. The wife cried, "What are we going to do?" "Nothing," said the hunter husband. "The stupid lion got himself in trouble, let him get himself out of it." ______________________________________________________ Two very elderly ladies were enjoying the sunshine on a park bench in Miami. They had been meeting that park every sunny day, for over 12 years, chatting and enjoying each others' friendship. One day, the younger of the two ladies, turns to the other and says, "Please don't be angry with me dear, but I am embarrassed. After all these years, what is your name? I am trying to remember, but I just can't." The older friend stares at her, looking very distressed, says nothing for 2 full minutes, and finally with tearful eyes, says, "How soon do you have to know?" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Dawn for this picture Click through for the large picture Delaware ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Troy Morley, 48 of Roy, Utah wannabe kidnapper in Utah gave up his 5 year old victim when threatened with dire consequences by her foster father. A set of Utah parents were awakened Friday to an unsettling noise for 4:30 in the morning: the sound of their front door opening and their 5-year-old daughter talking. When the father rushed outside in his pajama pants and hoodie he saw the terrifying sight of his 5-year-old stepdaughter in the arms of a stranger who was carrying her away across the front lawn. The man had snatched the girl out of her bed in the basement moments earlier after coming in the house through an unlocked door, police said. The father confronted the man, demanding that he give the girl back. Without a fight, the intruder handed her over, and then fled the scene. "There was a man in my home and he took my 5-year-old daughter," said the mother, crying, in a 911 call moments later. "I happened to wake up and he had my daughter outside. My husband ran out there and got her from him. But he took my daughter." "But do you have your daughter back now?" said the dispatcher. "Yeah, but he's out there somewhere," she said. "He came in my home...He took my daughter from my house." A man later identified as Troy Morley, 48, of Roy, Utah, was caught two blocks away after breaking into another house in a middle-class neighborhood in the Salt Lake City suburb of Sandy. Morley was arrested and booked on charges of child kidnapping, burglary, trespassing and resisting arrest. The 5-year-old girl wasn't hurt in the frightening experience, but the incident has evoked haunting echoes of when 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was snatched out of her Salt Lake City bedroom in 2002. She was held captive for nine months before being found. The abduction attempt was not targeted, but a random incident, said Sandy Police Sgt. Dean Carriger. The family said they don't know Morley. The intruder was in the family's basement searching through things when he came upon the girl sleeping in her bedroom, Carriger said. Police don't know what his motive was. "It obviously was a very scary, traumatic situation," Carriger said. "The sanctity of our home is huge and for somebody to enter that and grab your child, it's got to be one of the worst nightmares a parent could face. ... If those parents were not awakened to go out and investigate, he could have easily left undetected with the girl." After the 911 call, officers set up a perimeter, and with the help of police dogs, launched a search. The suspect went into a second home two blocks away through a doggy door in an attempt to evade capture. Luckily, the bonehead was too stupid to realize that a doggie door big enough for him, would indicate good size dogs. Those dogs at that house alerted the residents, who yelled at police already in the area to come get him. The dogs chased him outside again, where a police dog promptly took him to ground. Police captured Morley outside the second home thanks to a police dog that bit the suspect in the upper shoulder, and held on. Morley isn't on Utah's sex offender registry and online court records only show a pair of divorces and DUI charges. Holman called it a miracle that the parents woke up in time. "Thirty seconds later and it would have been all over," Holman said. "He would have been long gone." "Things like that just don't happen around here," said Melissa Johnson, 26, who is staying in her parents' house that is next to the home where the abduction event occurred. She said her younger sibling heard screams and commotion in the early morning and came to sleep with her downstairs. Johnson said they attend the same Mormon congregation as the family. Johnson and other neighbors say it's a scary thought that a man capable of snatching a child was roaming their neighborhood in the night. About 45 miles north in Roy, where Morley lived, neighbors said they weren't the least bit surprised to find out the man known as a super creep had been accused of trying to abduct a girl. Next-door neighbor Andrea Shearer, 33, said she forbid her children to interact with Morley after a series of bizarre and inappropriate conversations. Shearer said Morley had been caught sneaking into backyards, including hers. She obtained a no trespass order on him from police. She said she believes Morley had a meth addiction. He talked about a satanic cult causing his wife to leave him and having critters crawling through the attic, she said. "He scared me. I'm so glad he's gone," said Shearer, a health care professional. "You always hear people saying about their neighbor that they seemed so quiet and normal. Not him, I'm not surprised." Tech Support Pits From: Amy Re: FireFox update Dear Webby! Dear Webby, my granddaughter told me to skip the current FireFox update. She says it is crap and does not get along with Adobe Flash. Since I watch a lot of Youtube movies, that all seem to require Adobe Flash, I am concerned. What do you recommend? Amy Dear Amy I would agree with your grand daughter. Skip it. The new "Forget it" icon might be important to people, who want to hide their tracks, but I doubt that you need that. The new version also tends to forget the tabs you had open, when you close FF or reboot. Just skip this update and see if the next one will be better. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Kiwi was hoping to immigrate to Australia. Upon arriving in Australia, he was questioned by a customs officer, "What is your business in Australia?" "I wish to immigrate," was the Kiwi's reply. The customs officer then asked, "Do you have a conviction record?" Confused, the Kiwi then replied, "I didn't think you still needed one."
