I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time. --- Orson Welles (1915 - 1985) ______________________________________________________ A Latin American tour guide was addressing a small group of senior citizens and telling them about the country they were visiting. When he asked if they had any questions, one person inquired, "What is the number one sport in this country?" "Bullfighting," the guide replied. The same person asked "Isn't that revolting?" "No," replied the tour guide. "That's number two!" ______________________________________________________ >From David The scene: The "E" train of the subway line in New York City. I was commuting from the Borough of Queens to my job in Manhattan. I'd finished reading the morning paper and was saving it to bring to friends on the job. How do you save a newspaper on the subway? You sit on it. A new commuter came in, saw the newspaper under my rear and asked the second most stupid question I've ever heard (someday I may tell of the first), "Are you reading that paper?" I stood up, turned the page, sat down on the paper and answered, "Yes. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Guilin, China

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Daniel Garcia, 20, Houston Texas Child Porn Discovered On Stolen Phone A Houston man is behind bars after authorities allegedly discovered child porn on his stolen phone. Daniel Garcia, 20, had his Galaxy Note 3 stolen some time last year. It was purchased in July by a woman at a Pagetel store. The woman had no clue the phone was stolen merchandise and asked an employee to transfer her contacts and photos to the new phone, Click2Houston.com reports. When she got home, the woman told police she looked at the photos and saw a few of her own pictures and a whole bunch she didn't recognize, showing naked children. The woman took the camera to police, who determined that the phone originally belonged to Garcia, KHOU.com reports. Investigators said many of the images were pornographic in nature and executed a search warrant of Garcia's home where they interviewed him. Garcia allegedly admitted that he had owned the phone that held the images, but said it had been stolen, ABC11.com reports. Police said he allegedly admitted downloading the pornographic images and that he has been viewing child pornography since he was 12 years old, according to Click2Houston.com. During the investigation, detectives said they discovered Garcia had been inappropriately touching an 8-year-old girl since she was in kindergarten. Garcia was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of child pornography and one count of indecency with a child. He remains behind bars on $90,000 bail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Cora Re: Do we vote yet? Dear Webby, Do we vote yet? Haven't heard any thing so was wondering. Gosh Jan. is coming to an end. Cora Dear Cora The votes are currently added to last year's totals. Most of the time. You can see the results at http://www.ezinefinder.com/index.html They missed the first 14 days of the year, but since Jan 15/2015 there are votes getting added to the 1014 total. Some days the count seems to be credible. The customary two staff votes for their own Happy Garden Newsletter have been missing since January 1/2015. I have no idea if those two people got fired, or if they decided to not bother to vote for their newsletter until their boss switches the date over to 2015. Yes, I still do the graphs and see what is going on every day. Since they don't answer my email or mail form submissions, I have no idea what is going on there at the Ezinefinder. You can try writing to them and see if they answer you. Have FUN!

I didn't want to give him mine and have to continually take them away to use them. So I decided to buy a few items at Goodwill and let him have his own set. He loves them! By lalala... [557] ______________________________________________________ Bambi sidled up to a guest at the party. She had heard him addressed as doctor and now she said diffidently, "Doctor, may I ask a question?" "Certainly," he said. "Lately," said Bambi, "I have been having a funny pain right here above the heart..." The guest interrupted uncomfortably and said, "I'm terribly sorry, Bambi, but the truth is, I'm a doctor of philosophy." "Oh," said Bambi, "I'm sorry!" She turned away, but then overcome with curiosity, she turned back. "Just one more question, doctor. Tell me, what kind of disease is philosophy?"

A guy goes to a gypsy fortune teller. The gypsy tells him his lucky number is five, he should do everything in fives and he'll have great success. So on the 5th May (the fifth month) he gets up at 5 am.He has 5 slices of toast for breakfast. Then he walks 5 kilometres to the racetrack. He puts five $5 bills on horse no. 5 in the fifth race. And sure enough, it comes in fifth. _____________________________________________________ A hillbilly came into town and started walking down the street. His coonskin cap attracted a lot of attention and young folk gathered about him, gaping and giggling. He paid no attention until some smart alec said, "Tell me, do they have many fools back in the hills?" The visitor shrugged, "Well, we come across one every once in a while. But they don't run around in herds, like they do here in town."
