We can lick gravity, but sometimes the paperwork is overwhelming. --- Wernher von Braun (1912 - 1977) ______________________________________________________ The minister gave his Sunday morning service, as usual, but this particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than normal. Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved out, one man said, "Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful - so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing." The minister of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man say, "I felt like a new man when I woke up!" ______________________________________________________ Little Jimmy was laying about on a hillock in the middle of a meadow on a warm spring day. Puffy white clouds rolled by and he pondered their shape. Soon, he began to think about God. "God? Are you really there?" Jimmy said out loud. To his astonishment a voice came from the clouds. "Yes, Jimmy? What can I do for you?" Seizing the opportunity, Jimmy asked, "God? What is a million years like to you?" Knowing that Jimmy could not understand the concept of infinity, God responded in a manner to which Jimmy could relate, "A million years to me, Jimmy, is like a minute." "Oh," said Jimmy. "Well, then, what's a million dollars like to you?" "A million dollars to me, Jimmy, is like a penny." "Wow!" remarked Jimmy, getting an idea. "You're so generous...can I have one of your pennies?" God replied, "Sure thing, Jimmy! Just a minute." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Yesterday's bonehead was reported by Sailor. Thanks Sailor! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marlon Paul Alvarez, 19, Fort Lauderdale Florida
Shoplifter stuffed AK-47 down pants at pawn shop Marlon Paul Alvarez, of Fort Lauderdale, made his first appearance in court Wednesday where Broward Judge John Hurley expressed concern about Alvarez's behavior. "You allegedly went into that pawn shop and removed an AK-47 rifle on display and stuck it down your pants," the judge read from the arrest report. "After a while, [you] pulled it out, put it back, then grabbed another assault rifle off another display [and] put that down your pants." The owner of Public Pawn and Gun at 6798 Stirling Rd. noticed Alvarez limping out of the store with the assault rifle down his pant leg about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said. Owner Kevin Hughes confronted Alvarez outside and recovered the brand new $830 weapon before Alvarez ran off, the arrest report stated. Alvarez was seen on security video and the business owner was able to identify him when the suspect was arrested a short time later, police said. Alvarez said in court he had moved to Florida from New York about one year ago and the judge noted there was a New York injunction ordering Alvarez to stay away from guns. Assistant state attorney Eric Linder asked the judge to set a high bond. "It's one thing to try to steal a firearm, it's another thing trying to steal an AK47 and potentially trying to put a stolen firearm out on the street," Linder said. Hurley set bond at $25,000 for grand theft and the violation of a domestic violence injunction. He revoked bond for a May 15 arrest on theft and drug possession charges in Pembroke Pines, Florida Department of Law Enforcement records showed. "The court was just very concerned about your alleged behavior without even knowing your criminal background," Hurley said. According to the arrest report, Alvarez confessed to stealing the rifle. The report does not say whether it was the pawn shop owner or the police who gave him the facial decoration.

Anuk Dear Anuk Click on START, and into trhe RUN field type cleanmgr Then you get to choose the drive, that you want to clean up, and hit OK. It's not fast at all, and probably won't find much to clean, if you have run CrapCleaner on a regular basis. However, it should not hurt your system or speed. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A husband, proving to his wife that women talk more than men, showed her a study which indicated that men use, on the average, only 15,000 words a day, whereas women use 30,000 words a day. She thought about this for a while and then told her husband that women use twice as many words as men because they have to repeat or explain everything they say. He replied, "What do you mean?" ______________________________________________________ A young minister sitting down to dinner was about to say Grace when he opened the casserole dish that his thrifty bride had prepared from all of the refrigerator leftovers. "I don't know," he said dubiously, "but it seems to me that I've blessed all this stuff already." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Old Encyclopedias for Gag Gift Cards Since old encyclopedia sets are hard to sell and no one has the space for them anymore, individual volumes make great "birthday" or event cards. Give the volume that is the initial of the person and say something pithy on the inside. As a joke I gave the S volume to a friend we dubbed the snake oil salesman - tabbing the Snake article of course! By Lynette C. [1] ______________________________________________________
