How many pictures can you attach? 

Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, June 30

Happy Canada Day tomorrow! 
Have you got your fireworks? 
In most towns there are public fireworks set off
by professionals. The organized towns have information 
about that on their web site. Ours doesn't.

Check your local bylaws! In many places fireworks 
within town limits are illegal. People set them off anyway,
keeping a watchful eye out for the bylaw cops parading
around in their Chrysler Chargers. 

Have FUN!

He mounts the horse unassisted and the horse immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but Ted begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, he grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. He tries to throw his arms around the horse's neck, but he slides down the side off the horse anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up his frail grip, Ted leaps away from the horse to try to throw himself to safety. Unfortunately, his foot has become entangled in the stirrup and he is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as his head is struck against the ground again and again. As his head is battered against the ground, he is mere moments away from unconsciousness when ... the Wal-Mart manager runs out to shut the horse off. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for this picture: Clicks through to the big picture Silvretta Lake, an artificial power dam lake at 9000 ft level. ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kyle Mullane, 46, Vero Beach, Floriduh
Mom busted for hitting daughter who flushed her pot JUNE 29--A Florida woman battered her daughter after the teenager discovered her mother’s marijuana stash and flushed the pot down the toilet, cops allege. According to an arrest affidavit, Ashley Mullane, 18, last night found the weed on a counter when she went into the kitchen of her family’s Vero Beach home to get a drink. Mullane told cops that she “believed that it belonged to her mother, Kyle Mullane, so she flushed it down the toilet.” When Mullane, 46, saw her child disposing of the pot, she got in the teen’s face and “began to yell at her... and calling her names.” After Ashley told her mother to back off and threatened to dial 911, “her mother slapped her in the face,” investigators report. During police questioning, Kyle Mullane denied striking her daughter, though she acknowledged that the teen “did flush her weed down the toilet.” Mullane added, however, that “it was no big deal because she would just go out and get more.” Since Mullane has a prior domestic battery conviction, she was charged with a felony for hitting her daughter. Mullane’s rap sheet includes prior collars for theft, trespass, and disorderly intoxication.

Megan Dear Megan That depends on the size of the pictures and the mail program you use, and your provider. If they are huge originals, send four or less. If they are smaller, then you can send more.

He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, "Just take it easy. I can help. First, lets make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says, "OK, now what?" ______________________________________________________ At a session with a marriage counselor, the prim English wife snapped at her husband: "That's not true !

My idea is that the tobacco smell arrived by heat and through the air, so maybe it can depart again the same way. To do this, I put the leather item into the oven at the lowest setting (150 degrees F) for about an hour and a half. I opened the oven (and the outside door of the kitchen) several times along the way to let the newly-evaporated tobacco tars and oils escape. And it worked. It worked really well. About 95% of the tobacco smell was gone. There was no detectable "drying out" effect on the natural oils in the leather at all. If there had been, I would have applied replacement oils from a bottle of leather conditioner that I already owned. Hurrah! I'm posting in the hope that this will help someone else with the same problem. By Garry W [1] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A farmer named O'Rourke lived alone in the countryside with a pet dog which he loved and doted on... After many long years of companionship, the dog finally died so O'Rourke went to the parish priest: "Father, my dear old dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the poor creature?" Father Michael replied, "I am so very sorry to hear about your dog's death. But, unfortunately we cannot have services for an animal in the church. However, there's a new denomination down the road, no telling what they believe, but maybe they'll do something for the animal." O'Rourke said, "I'll go right now. Do you think $500 is enough to donate for the service?" Father Michael jumped up: "Now, now... why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?" _____________________________________________________ Brother Smith called his bishop and said: "I know today is General Conference but, the 49'ers are in the playoffs. Bishop I am a long- time fan. I've got to watch the 49'ers game on TV." The bishop responds: Brother, that's what VCR's are for." Brother Smith is surprised. "You mean I can tape General Conference?" ____________________________________________________
