When you're through changing, you're through. --- Bruce Barton I have such poor vision I can date anybody. --- Garry Shandling (1949 - ) ______________________________________________________ A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money. The old man cleared his throat, fingered his worsted wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932, the depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel. I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents. The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I had accumulated a fortune of $1.37. Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars." ______________________________________________________ Little Johnny was eating breakfast one morning and started thinking about things. "Mommy, why does daddy have so few hairs on his head?" he asked his mother. "He thinks a lot," replied his mother, pleased with herself for coming up with a good answer to her husband's baldness. Johnny thought for a second and replied, "I'm glad you don't do any thinking. You would look weird if you were bald!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Walter, The Stonecarver for this picture.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Edward Miller, 21, Hartford, Connecticut a guy who ‘fought everyone’ and lost Edward Miller of Hartford, Connecticut went full-blown Screech in the metropolis of nearby West Hartford over the weekend–and the glorious result is a late contender for Mugshot of the Year. It seems that the 21-year-old set out to pretty much fight everybody at a local restaurant. That included the police who were called in to the incident. Alcohol might have been involved. The cops sure got involved. Miller kept brawling even after getting pepper-sprayed. After he was suitably tenderized and stuffed into the police car, Miller kicked out the back window of the police car. Charges include interfering with a police officer, first degree criminal mischief, and breach of peace. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brook Re: RCA Cables Dear Webby It seems like I can never get the RCA cables to work. I have an older Wii and an older DVD player that I would like to connect (to different TVs). The cables are red, white and yellow, yet the TVs never seem to have a yellow connector. I checked on wiki and it says that "...beyond 7.1 audio, there are no color standards." Please hellp. Thanks Brook Dear Brook I think the RCA standard is history. You would need an old style TV for that. Wii might have some converters, but I would not count on that. They would rather sell you a new one, that works with today's TVs. Have FUN!

But oatmeal can get so boring. I like to "spice" it up every now and then to make it enjoyable again.:) One of the things I like about this recipe is that you can use your less than perfect apples that are starting to get a bit soft. This is quite tasty on a cold winter morning. And still very healthy! :) Approximate Time: About 10-15 minutes Yield: About 6 servings Ingredients: 6 cups water 3 1/2 cup oatmeal 3 large apples, any kind will do. I used Granny Smith. 1/3 - 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 - 2 tsp cinnamon butter or margarine Steps: Peel and cube 3 large apples, any kind. I used Granny Smith, but any will be great. Try and use up the ones that are going soft. They will still be tasty! Put 6 cups of water into a pot. Add apples, 1/3 - 1/2 cup brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like it). Add 1 - 2 teaspoons cinnamon (depending on how "cinnamony" you like it.:) Cook on high until you have a rolling boil. Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Add 3 1/2 cups oatmeal, quick or regular, either one, stir constantly for about 5 minutes. Top with a lovely pat of butter or margarine and enjoy! :) You could easily halve this recipe if you don't want such a large pot. I just have a lot of people to feed!

A guy walked into his friend's office, he found him sitting at his desk, looking very depressed. "Hey, what's up with you?", he asks. "Oh, its my wife," replied the man sadly. "She's hired a new secretary for me." "Well, nothing wrong in that. Is she blonde, redhead or brunette?" "Neither, her grandfather is bald." ______________________________________________________ Bumper Stickers from 20 years ago: If that phone was up your butt, maybe you could drive better!
