In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. --- George Orwell (1903 - 1950) Genius without education is like silver in the mine. --- Benjamin Franklin: A psychologist once said that we know little about the conscience except that it is soluble in alcohol. --- Thomas Blackburn We don't see things as they are; we see things as we are." --- Anais Nin ______________________________________________________ >From Dave A couple of hours into a visit with my mother, she noticed I hadn't once lit up a cigarette. "Are you trying to kick the habit?" she asked. "No," I replied. "I have a cold, and I don't smoke when I'm not feeling well." "You know," she observed, "you'd probably live longer if you were sick more often." ______________________________________________________ A very spiritual, devout and holy priest dies and is immediately swept up to heaven. St. Peter greets him at the Pearly Gates, and says, "Hello, Father, we've been waiting for you for a long time. Welcome to Heaven! You are very well known here, and as a special reward, because you are such a spiritual and holy man, we're going to grant you anything you wish even before we enter Heaven. What can I grant you?" "Well", the priest says, "I've always been a great admirer of the Virgin Mother. I've always wanted to ask her a question." St. Peter nods his head to one side, and lo and behold who should approach the priest but the Virgin Mary! The priest is beside himself, and he manages to say, "Mother, I have always been a great admirer of yours, and have studied everything I could about you and followed your life as best I could. I have studied every painting and portrait ever made of you, and I've noticed that you are always portrayed with a slightly sad look on your face. I have always, always wondered what it was that made you sad. Would you please tell me?" "Well", says Mother Mary, "to tell the truth, I was really hoping for a girl." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Victor for this picture: Click through for the big picture You voted for WHOOOOO ?? ______________________________________________________

I remember your suggestion to get a top of the line camera that's 1-2 years old for finding a quality camera at a good price. I'm trying to do that, but don't know where to start to find these old "top of the line" cameras. Can you tell me somewhere I can start looking. Any good suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chuck Dear Chuck Try Pricegrabber I see a mighty Canon Powershot G1-X there for $110 A few years ago the magazine reviewers, -who never had to pay for a camera because they get all of them free to review-, could not stop gushing about that camera. Sure, there are some newer models now, that may or may not offer more to a professional photographer, but the G1-X is still just as awesome as it was when it came out. There are lots of excellent cameras there. Pick one that fits your budget, and you will get a great deal. Have FUN! DearWebby

TRICK OR TREATING BY STAR SIGN Aries pushes the others aside to get to the door first. Taurus will only eat the finest of Swiss chocolates. Gemini goes around the neighbourhood once, changes costumes and goes around again. Cancer stays at home and gives candy to the other trick-or-treaters. Leos plan their costume for months, then won't go out because someone else had the same idea. Virgo wears a neatly-pressed suit and tells everyone they're a bookkeeper. Libra is still standing in front of the closet trying to decide on a costume. Scorpio isn't in it for the candy. Sagittarius will manage to wander to the next town. Capricorn makes a list of all the houses that give good candy and the optimal route to take. Aquarius builds the costume out of spare flashlights and spends all night tinkering when it shorts. Pisces skips the whole thing to compose poetry to the Moon.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cake Mix Cookies I love quick recipes! These have only 4 ingredients (one of which is water) and are super fluffy. They are also lower in fat than most cookies, as there is only 4 tablespoons of shortening in the entire batch. I made mine with devil's food cake mix, but will soon be trying angel food among others. Approximate Time: 15-20 minutes Yield: 24 cookies Ingredients: 1 box devil's food cake mix 2 eggs 4 Tbsp shortening, melted 6 Tbsp water Steps: Add cake mix, 2 beaten eggs, 4 tablespoons melted shortening and 6 tablespoons water to a bowl and blend well. Drop by large tablespoons full onto greased cookie sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 11 minutes. Put in hand, bring to mouth, chew. Now smile.:) Repeat.

______________________________________________________ Mother had decided to trim her household budget wherever possible, so instead of having a dress dry-cleaned she washed it by hand. Proud of her savings, she boasted to my father, "Just think, Fred, we are five dollars richer because I washed this dress by hand." "Good," my dad quickly replied. "Wash it again!" ______________________________________________________ The old town blacksmith realised he couldn't work so hard anymore. He picked out strong young Bill Deville to become his apprentice. The old fellow was impatient and exacting. "Don't ask me a lot of questions," he told Bill, "Just do whatever I tell you to do." One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil. "Get the hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard." Bill is looking for a new apprenticeship.
