Wise sayings often fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never thrown away. --- Sir Arthur Helps I have such poor vision I can date anybody. --- Garry Shandling (1949 - ) ______________________________________________________ A famed English explorer was invited to Dartmouth to tell of his adventures in the African jungle. "Can you imagine," he demanded, "people so primitive that they love to eat the embryo of certain birds, and slices from the belly of certain animals? And grind up grass seed, make it into a paste, burn it over a fire, then smear it with a greasy mess they extract from the mammary fluid of certain other animals?" When the students looked startled by such barbarism, the explorer added softly, "What I've been describing, of course, is a breakfast of bacon and eggs and buttered toast." ______________________________________________________ My friend, Monica, is an accomplished harpist who frequently plays for weddings, receptions, parties and other such events. She is also blonde and has an appropriately cherubic face. She was on her way to an engagement at a hotel and stepped into an elevator with her large golden harp. Just before the doors closed, a distinguished gray-haired man stepped on. As the elevator rose, he looked thoughtfully first at her and then her harp and asked, "How far up does this elevator go?" ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Hanging out ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jeffrey Mark Jalinski, 30, Orange County Florida Started Fires With Gas-Filled Bottles A Florida man with very distinctive facial tattoos allegedly told police he had a burning desire to start fires. Now his heated hobby has landed him in hot water. Police in Orange County, Florida, arrested Jeffrey Mark Jalinski, 30, on Dec. 22, after he admitted to using homemade devices to start fires in burn barrels, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Deputies and a SWAT team initially showed up at Jalinski's motor home with a search warrant looking for drugs. Instead, they said, they found three beer bottles believed to contain gasoline and rags stuck in the neck of each bottle. The suspect allegedly told deputies that the bottles were his and confirmed they were filled with gas. He also allegedly confessed to using the bottles to start fires, KIRO TV reports. Jalinski was charged with possession of or discharging a destructive device. He has since bonded out of Orange County Jail, but not before posing for this memorable mug shot, according to AR15.com. ------------ I have seen Hillbillies light their burning barrels that way, if they stunk too much or had too many wasps or horseflies. Usually though, the bottle did not break and required a shot from a shotgun to shatter it and light the barrel. That is, if they were sober enough to actually get the bottle INTO the barrel. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Noella Re: Move Thunderbird daqta to new laptop Dear Webby Need to find Thunderbird files, not Outlook Express.

It worked! Use craft scissors and cut cleanly so you leave no sharp edges. I would suggest you wear work gloves and possibly use needle nose pliers to bend down and crimp closed the cut ends after cutting the circle out of the bottom just to guarantee no cuts! I intend to reuse these again and again. By Dee [186]

A real estate salesman had just closed his first deal, only to discover that the piece of land he had sold was completely under water. "That customer's going to come back here pretty mad," he said to his boss. "Should I give him his money back?" "Money back?" roared the boss. "What kind of salesman are you? Get out there and sell him a houseboat." ______________________________________________________ Our young daughter had adopted a stray cat. To my distress, he began to use the back of our new sofa as a scratching post. "Don't worry," my husband reassured me. "I'll have him trained in no time." I watched for several days as my husband patiently "trained" our new pet. Whenever the cat scratched, my husband deposited him outdoors to teach him a lesson. The cat learned quickly. For the next 16 years, whenever he wanted to go outside, he scratched the back of the sofa.
