What others think of us would be of little moment did it not, when known, so deeply tinge what we think of ourselves. --- Paul Valery (1871 - 1945) The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office. --- Robert Frost It is a far, far better thing to have a firm anchor in nonsense than to put out on the troubled sea of thought. --- John Kenneth Galbraith ______________________________________________________ After watching the movie Cinderella, five-year-old Sarah started using her pinwheel as a magic wand, pretending she was a fairy godmother. "Make three wishes," she told her mother, "and I'll grant them." Her mom first asked for world peace. Sarah swung her wand and proclaimed the request fulfilled. Next, her mother requested for a cure for all ill children. Again, with a sweep of the pinwheel, Sarah obliged. The mother, with a glance down at her rather ample curves, made her third wish, "I wish to have a trim figure again." The miniature fairy godmother started waving her wand madly. "I'll need more power for this!" she exclaimed. ______________________________________________________ Resume Blunders "My intensity and focus are at inordinately high levels, and my ability to complete projects on time is unspeakable."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by German girl 18, Lippe, near Berlin, Germany
She fought a tank, and the tank won German teenager who made a wrong turn expecting a tank to stop. It stopped on her car's hood. A teenage driver took a wrong turn and got run over by a British tank which crushed the front of her car in Berlin, Germany on Monday. The 18-year-old German, who luckily survived the incident, found herself in the path of a convoy of English tanks that were driving along the aptly-named Panzerringstrasse, or "Tank Ring Street," local police in Lippe said in a statement. They always drive the same route for practise. The 24-year-old British driver of the tank did not manage to stop his vehicle and ended up running over the Toyota and flattening the hood. The teenager was able to get out of the vehicle without any injuries -- except to the wallet of whoever paid for the car. The total damage is expected to cost around 12,000 Euros ($13,359). Since the colliasion was her fault, the British Army won't pay for the damage. The tank did not sustain any serious damage and not much fell off.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jorge Re: Malwarebytes asking for IE6 Dear Webby Dear Webby Good morning!! Guten morgan! Buenos díos! Hope all is going well with you and yours... Every day for the last couple of weeks Windows is telling me that there are new updates available. When I download what they've got, it's the same thing. Looks like Windows can find some malware and destroy it, but it's got a copy hidden somewhere... Time to bring in heavier artillery... So I was checking out your MalwareBytes offer. All looks O.K. except this... Software Requirements: Windows Vista/Windows7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1 (32 bit or 64 bit) Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or later, 32-bit only) Internet Explorer 6 or newer Hm-m... I've got Explorer 8 or so I believe, but I never use it (don't trust it!). What I use is the latest version of FireFox. Is that/would that be a problem/an issue? Kindest personal regards, Jorge Dear Jorge It's not YOUR computer calling for that, it's Microsoft PUSHING that, whether you need or want it or not. Like that X10 icon they push onto some people. It's not you needing it. Re Malwarebytes: Like XT, IE6 is the very lowest scraping of the barrel. Of course you can use a better browser! It works just fine on my Chrome, always has, and probably works just as well on FF. Just if you use IE, don't use a version below IE6. Not a big deal. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Little Johnny was reading from a Hans Christian Anderson book. "Miss Figpot?" Little Johnny asked, "is m-i-r-a-g-e pronounced marriage?" "No Johnny," sighed the teacher. "But it should be." ______________________________________________________ Two women are discussing marriage, and one says, "We've been married 10 years, and every night my husband has complained about dinner. Not one night without complaining about the food." "That's awful," the other woman says. "That must really bother you." "No, not in the slightest," says the first one. "You must be a saint," her friend says. "Why should I object?" the first one says. "A lot of people don't like their own cooking." _________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Keep Sneakers Snug I can't believe that I never knew this until the salesperson at my shoestore told me when buying sneakers! I did always wonder why some sneakers had very long laces. Those top holes on many pairs of sneakers are to make a 'lace lock' hoop with the laces. You need to make a loop at the top two holes, criss cross the laces then thread them into the loop and pull downward to tighten. Really holds the sneakers on so they don't shift around while walking/running, or for little kids so they don't lose their sneakers in the grocery store! :D Source: My local sneaker store By Donna [245] ______________________________________________________

I said, "Just wait." _____________________________________________________ One day a salesman stopped by the Jammer Jones farm, knocked, and Jammer's wife Frannie came to the door. "Is your husband home, Ma'am?" he asked. "Sure is. He's over to the cow barn." "Well, I got something to show him, Ma'am. Will I have any difficulty finding him?" "Shouldn't have any difficulties. He's the one without horns." ____________________________________________________
