To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17. " The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only 16 chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying." ______________________________________________________ Not too long ago a large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the speakers were many well known motivational speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn't my wife!" The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, " That woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech which, went over well. About a week later one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It seemed a bit foggy to him this morning. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of another woman that was not my wife!" His congregation sat shocked. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out "...and I can't remember who she was!" ______________________________________________________ Click through to the big picture He is MINE! ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: David Re: Speech to Text program DearWebby Is there a voice to text program, that you can recommend? I need to translate/transcribe a recorded speech into editable text. The programs I tried are all a total waste of time, and some, like "voicetotext" from Cnet download install a bunch of trojans and hijackers, but no program at all. That was a major piss-off. Isn't there something that is safe and that works? David. Dear David No. You can try "Dragon Naturally Speaking". It costs about $80 for the cheapest version, and can be trained to eventually understand YOU, as long as you speak slowly and clearly and pronounce each word always the same. "Enter!" and "enter?" are NOT the same. If somebody has LOTS of time and patience, they can even use it to edit the mess it makes of your own speech. You are right about that voicetotext from Cnet.com download. It is an evil bunch of trojans and hijackers. Luckily Malwarebytes gets rid of that crap, even the Dregol hijacker, that makes it nearly impossible to regain control of your browser. Be EXTREMELY careful when downloading anything from Cnet's download. A lot of the stuff there is just thinly disguised malware. They don't seem to give a hoot about what the hackers upload. If one of the subscribers knows of a program that does work for transcribing recorded speech, please tell me! I have been looking for one for quite a while. Right now I am looking for a human, who can do that! Once upon a time, long, long ago, there used to be a lot of pretty ladies, who could type as fast as any speech, look around and make faces and voice smart-ass comments about the speech. Where are they now? Have Fun! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ In a class on abnormal psychology, the instructor was about to introduce the subject of manic depression. She posed this question to her students: "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?" A young man in the rear raised his hand and suggested earnestly, "A basketball coach?" ______________________________________________________ Little Tony was so happy to see his grandmother that he ran up and gave her a big hug. "I'm so happy to see you, grandma. Now daddy will have to do that trick he promisied to do!" His grandmother was curious. "What trick is that, sweetie?" The little guy smiled at her, "I heard daddy tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Washing Soda for Cleaning Sponges Washing soda is best for cleaning sponges and cleaning cloths. It will remove soap, dirt, or anything else remaining within. Things caught in the sponge will cause odors as well as give germs a place to fester. I even clean my micro cloths this way. It is safe enough to clean Enjo mops and cloths. By katesnanna [12] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ In a physics lab, which involved light, electricity and magnetism, one requirement of the course was to read the week's experiment before coming to class. At one lab session the instructor wanted to see how many people had actually done so. "What are the two types of light?" he asked. The lab fell quiet until one wise guy raised his hand and said, "Uhhh, Miller and Budweiser?" _____________________________________________________ This guy was walking along the beach one day and ran across a lamp (what a surprise). He picked it up a rubbed it and a genie popped out (ohh, another big surprise). The genie told him he would grant the man three wishes. "First," the guy began, "I'd like a million dollars." POOF! A million dollars was suddenly showing on his checkbook balance. "Second," he continued, "I'd like a new Mercedes." POOF! A Mercedes appeared right in front of him. "Third," the guy smirked, "I'd like to be irresistible to women." POOF! He turned into a box of chocolates. ____________________________________________________
