It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them. --- Pierre Beaumarchais (1732 - 1799) ______________________________________________________ A city slicker stopped his large, expensive car on a country road and looked about in confusion. He noticed a young farm hand leaning on a fence and called to him, "Hey, you know how far it is to Shrewsbury?" The farm hand thought about it and said, "Don't know." "Well then, do you know the best way to get there?" Again, the farm hand thought a bit and said, "Don't know." "Look, can you just tell me where the nearest gas station is so I can pick up a map?" "'Fraid I don't know that either." Frustrated, the man in the car snapped, "You don't know much do you?" To which the farm hand replied: "I know enough not to get lost in these here parts." ______________________________________________________ A doctor's secretary called an old farmer and said: "Your check came back." The old man replied, "So did my arthritis." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Lengkuas island, Indonesia

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Adam Morton 27 Berlin, New Hampshire Putting Toddler In Running Dryer A New Hampshire man who put his girlfriend's 2-year-old son in a running clothes dryer at her home has pleaded guilty to assault. WABI-TV reports that Adam Morton, of Berlin, New Hampshire, entered his plea in a Bangor courtroom on Tuesday. Authorities say the 27-year-old Morton was taking care of the boy in August while his girlfriend was at work. According to court documents, the boy suffered second-degree burns on his arms and back and burns and blisters on his feet. Morton told police the boy was in the dryer's drum for just one revolution, but investigators determined that the boy was in the dryer for a prolonged period. Morton is scheduled to be sentenced February 2. Prosecutors are recommending a two-year sentence. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Donny Re: IE address bar Dear Webby, Tried this - doesn't work. Any other ideas ? Was using 'Internet Eraser' and it did the job, but, am trying not to have too many programs running. Donny Dear Donny I thought you had written that you just want the address bar cleaned. If you don't mind that the history is wiped, then there are a few methods you could use. Even CrapCleaner will do that. Microsoft writes: Close all running instances of Internet Explorer and all browser windows. In Control Panel, click Internet Options. Click the General tab, and then click Clear History. Click Yes, and then click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box. Try that. Yes, I know it is a nuisance, but so is IE.

With time, I've tried other tips I've read about concerning hard boiled eggs and would like to share my recent discovery. I now place our food strainer in the sink before I peel the hard boiled eggs under water. When I'm done, I just empty the strainer into the trash can and then rinse the strainer. It took less than a minute to clean up the peeled shells from a dozen eggs. Once peeled, I lay some paper towels in the bottom of some Rubbermaid containers, place in the refrigerator, and the eggs stay good for over a week. By CaroleeRose from Madison, AL ______________________________________________________ >From Lorna On a trip to Enseņada, Mexico, for the day, we parked in front of some interesting-looking shops. A little boy ran over to us and said, "Seņor, I watch your car, fifty cent!" I asked him to wait "un momento" and entered a shop to ask the owner in Spanish about the young lad. He explained to me, "You give him the fifty cents, he runs away. You don't give him money, he runs away with your hubcaps and gas cap."

No sermon and not suitable for church, just jokes and fun for grownups. Read it on line or subscribe. If you subscribe, look for the double opt in confirmation request.
The preacher spent his whole sermon relating the evils of sin and how all men are sinners with no exceptions. At the end of the sermon he asked rhetorically, "Now does anyone here think they are without sin?" He had only to wait a few seconds before a man in one of the back pews stood up. The pastor asked the man who had the audacity to stand after such a fiery sermon, "Sir, do you really think you are completely without sin?" The man quickly answered, "No sir, I'm not standing up for myself, but for my wife's first husband." _____________________________________________________ An Avon lady was along in an elevator when she suddenly had to fart. She promptly reached into her bag and sprayed the air with her deodorizer. Two floors later a gentleman got onto the elevator. He began to sniff. The Avon lady asked, "Do you smell something?" "Why, yes, I do," he replied. "What does it smell like?" "Hmmm, I'm not sure, ...... but it smells like a pine tree fell on an outhouse."
I love dog faces and there are some funny ones here.
