Most advances in science come when a person for one reason or another is forced to change fields. --- Peter Borden Examinations are formidable even to the best prepared, for the greatest fool may ask more than the wisest man can answer. --- Charles Caleb Colton (1780 - 1832) ______________________________________________________ Larry goes to see his travel agent. "Hey Larry, going away on holiday again?" "Yes, but I need to ask for something different." "Go ahead ask me." "You know last year you suggested Hawaii and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes, but. . ." "And the year before you suggested Bermuda and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes, but. . ." "And the year before that I went to Bali and when I returned my wife was pregnant." "Yes." "Well! Could you suggest something cheaper this year so that I can bring her with me?" ______________________________________________________ Heard on Southwest Airlines, just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City: The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault . . . it was the asphalt!" ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Candy Cane Sorrel (Oxalis versicolor) ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Amber Keyes, 35 Houston TX Charged After Daughter's Body Found In Fridge A Houston mother has been charged with neglect after her 9-year-old daughter's body was discovered stuffed inside a refrigerator. Amber Keyes is being held Wednesday on a charge of injury to a child-serious bodily injury. The 35-year-old Keyes hasn't been charged with killing her daughter, Ayahna Comb, but Houston police say the neglect charge is linked to her death. Ayahna weighed 14 pounds (9 year old!) when some children looking for food found her body in Keyes' refrigerator. An autopsy determined Ayahna, who had cerebral palsy, died of malnutrition and dehydration. Keyes says she found Ayahna unresponsive but couldn't revive her, so she wrapped the girl in a blanket and stashed her in the fridge. Bond is set at $50,000.

Being a teenager and getting a tattoo seem to go hand in hand these days. I wasn't surprised when one of my daughter's friends showed me a delicate little Japanese symbol on her hip. "Please don't tell my parents," she begged. "I won't" I promised. "By the way, what does that stand for?" "Honesty," she said.
Daily tip from Easy Egg Salad for Sandwiches Next time you are cooking scrambled eggs, cook a double quantity and leave half to cool. These can then be mashed with your preferred mayonnaise and freshly ground black pepper to taste. It saves all the palaver of shelling boiled eggs, and is easier to mix into the bargain. I normally scramble my eggs with salted butter - if you prefer to use only skimmed milk, you may wish to add salt. If I am not planning to use the sandwich filling immediately, I will usually store in the fridge for up to three days, covered with cling film.

______________________________________________________ >From Kim We purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters. Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared. One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up. "For the past 30 years," he muttered, "they've gone to Florida for the winter." ______________________________________________________ On a Continental Flight with sme very "senior" flight attendants crew, the pilot said, "Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."
