If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much. --- Donald H. Rumsfeld (1932 - ) ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Connie for this story: My uncle Joe and his best buddy, Bubba, went hunting a couple of weeks ago. Somehow they got lost. Uncle Joe reassured his buddy, though. "Don't worry. All we have to do is shoot into the air three times, stay where we are, and someone will find us." They shot in the air three times, but no one came. After a while, they tried it again. Still no response. When they decided to try once more, Bubba said, "It better work this time. We're down to our last three arrows." ______________________________________________________ A tourist was admiring the necklace worn by a local Indian. "What is it made of?" she asked. "Alligator's teeth," the Indian replied. "I suppose," she said patronizingly, "that they mean as much to you as pearls do to us." "Yes, they do, brave oyster wrestler!" ______________________________________________________ GROAN ALERT One day in the forest, three animals were discussing who among them was the most powerful. "I am," said the hawk, "because I can fly and swoop down swiftly at my prey." "That's nothing," said the mountain lion, "I am not only fleet, but I have powerful teeth and claws." "I am the most powerful," said the skunk, "because with a flick of my tail, I can drive off the two of you." Just then a huge grizzly bear lumbered out of the forest and settled the debate by eating them all. . . . hawk, lion, and stinker. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Jean for sending this picture: Click through for the big picture Japanese Maple ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to NeoNazis in Germany Neo-Nazis tricked into marching and Fundraising for Anti-Nazis Neo-Nazis were tricked into raising money for an Anti-Nazi charity through their annual march in a small town in Germany. Neo-Nazis were tricked into raising money for an anti-Nazi charity through their annual march in a small town in Germany. Supporters of Hitler's Third Reich march through Wunsiedel - the burial site of Rudolf Hess - every November to mark National Heroes' Remembrance Day. But this year, campaign group Right against Right convinced residents to donate 10 euro to a charity that helps people leave extremist groups for each metre the neo-Nazis marched. Villagers even put up motivational signs along the route, and showered the neo-Nazis with confetti when they finished. And they set up a stall providing snacks for the walkers under the banner 'Mein Mampf' - which translates as 'My Fight'. "It was an absolute success," Inge Schuster, spokesman for the mayor of Wunsiedel, told The Local online newspaper. "It created something positive out of the march, including the 10,000 euro donation for EXIT-Deutschland." A Right Against Right spokesman said residents were sick of the sight of Neo-Nazis walking through their community each year. "We could not stop them - but we could make them walk for something meaningful: and that is how for the first time a right-wing memorial march became a charity walk - without the participants knowing," he said. The Neo-Nazis, who fight against illegal Muslim immigrants, thought "Exit Deutschland" was about getting illegal Muslim immigrants out, not getting nazis out. "For every metre they walked, 10 euros went to EXIT-Deutschland - a Nazi opt-out programme. The result: 10,000 euros and lots of surprised right-wing extremists."

>From Bonnie It was our second anniversary, and my husband sent me flowers at the office. He told the florist to write "Happy Anniversary, Year Number 2" on the card. I was thrilled with the flowers, but not so pleased with the card. It read "Happy Anniversary. You're Number 2."
Daily tip from Homemade Household Cleaner This is the best all-purpose household cleaner I know of. I make a batch and put it in an old spray bottle that once held a commercial cleaner. I keep the extra in an old gallon sized vinegar bottle. Ingredients 1 gallon water 1 cup ammonia (not the sudsy kind) 1 cup white vinegar 1 cup washing soda Directions Mix the ingredients until dissolved. You may want to test it on painted surfaces before using. I've never had it fade any paint, but you never know.

______________________________________________________ Jill complained to Nina, "Rosey told me that you told her the secret I told you not to tell her." "Well," replied Nina in a hurt tone", I told her not to tell you I told her." "Oh dear!" sighed Jill. "Well, don't tell her I told you that she told me". ______________________________________________________ We had just finished eating a beautiful dinner that my mother had prepared for our family. As I glanced up at the chandelier over the table, I was mesmerized by the creative handiwork a spider had woven around the prisms and lightbulbs. "Don't look up there!" my mother screamed. "It's the one thing I was too tired to clean!" "Don't look where?" my brother asked. "There!" my mother pointed. "It's my own personal web sight!"
