To have doubted one's own first principles is the mark of a civilized man. --- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. (1841 - 1935) The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook. --- William James ______________________________________________________ A minister, having served the same church for many years, decided to leave and take a similar position in another church. Without telling anyone or writing a letter to the congregationhe had made this decision. He waited until Sunday morning to announce his resignation in church. When he spoke to the congregation he said, "The same Jesus that called me to this church many years ago has now called upon me to leave and serve another church." The choir all stood and sang, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." ______________________________________________________ >From Andy My daughter's fifth grade class had been studying astronomy. One morning over breakfast she announced, "On Friday we're having a quiz on the moon." At once her little brother's eyes got big and he asked, "Are you gonna let her go, Mom?" ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kimberley Pankratius 36 Lincoln, Nebraska Nebraska woman rams couple, who parked where she wanted to park Last Saturday, a couple named Julie and Christopher Weakly went to their local Walmart in Lincoln, Nebraska. While parking, they allegedly took a space that 36-year-old Kimberley Pankratius (pictured above) had been waiting for. The couple say they were unaware that Kimberley had had her eye on the spot. According to a police report, Kimberley wound down her window and yelled at the couple, calling them "douchebags." Julie says that she and her husband ignored Kimberley and walked toward the store. As they were walking, police say, Kimberley drove her PT Cruiser directly at the couple, hitting Julie with the wing mirror hard enough to break it from the car. Kimberley fled the scene, but was tracked down later by police. She was arrested and charged with assault and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony. Kimberley told police that she "felt really bad" about the whole thing, and claimed she'd been trying to scare the couple, rather than actually hit them with her car. The police report does not specify why she appears to be wearing one of those capes, that they give you when you get your hair cut, for her mugshot. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Monitor Internet usage Dear Webby Good morning! I am looking for your expertise on a problem I have. The Grandson is at our house a lot with his X-Box and using a lot of our internet capacity. I hear rumors of a download that enables me to monitor internet usage to determine where it is going. Our internet supplier only indicates total usage for the day. I am looking for something a little more specific. Do you have any recommendations. This is getting to be a real problem. Thanks a lot for your help and have a Great New Year!! Jim Dear Jim There are no free programs, that I know of, that will tell you where connections have gone to. The best you can do for free are these 5: They will tell you what times of day how much data has been used. Since you can already monitor usage per day, it is easy enough to compare days, when he is not visiting to days when he is, and bill him accordingly. Once you start billing him, he will find somebody else to mooch of. He probably does know some people, who have unlimited bandwidth. He can go visit them with his X-box, or at least spread his mooching around. Have FUN!

I have one now that used only 6 whites. Rather then wasting them or scrambling to make some other recipe, you may save either your white or yolks separately in individual ice cube trays. Whites are fine as is but you need to add a little sugar OR salt to your yolks before freezing. I use salt since it's used in so many recipes. Then just pop them out and let them defrost when you need them! They keep for at least three months. Happy Baking! By Dee [186] ______________________________________________________

"Do you understand what will happen if you are not truthful?" "Sure," said the witness. "My side will win." "OK, then, if your side wins, you are guilty of perjury and will get ten years." ______________________________________________________ Bob's wife uses curlers in her hair after she washes it. She came into the Family Room as he was watching TV. He stared at her funny because she said, "I just set my hair." The last thing he remembers saying was, "Oh, really? And what time does it go off?"
