He took his friend out for a drive, and he chose the route carefully in order to impress on him the possibilities of the brokerage business. "Look at that yacht," he said as they drove slowly past a marina. "That 96' beauty belongs to the senior partner at Merrill Lynch. That one over there 104' is owned by the head of Goldman, Sachs. And look at that huge 210' yacht out there. That's the pride and joy of the top seller at Prudential-Bache." His friend Morris was silent. Goodman turned to look at him and saw a pained look on his face. "What's the matter?" Goodman asked. "I was just wondering," Morris said. "why aren't there any customers' yachts?" ______________________________________________________ When a guy's printer began to grow faint, he called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told him he might be better off reading the printer's manual and trying the job himself. Pleasantly surprised by his candor, he asked, "Does your boss know that you discourage business?" "Actually, it is my boss's idea," the employee replied sheepishly. "We usually make a LOT more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Don for this picture Peggy's Cove, NS ______________________________________________________ Two city swingers were walking in the country when one of them spotted a bug walking across the road.

Thanks to Noella for reporting this bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Mogan, 28, and Ashley Duboe, 24, Ashville, Ohio
Ohio bank robbers arrested after they posed on Facebook with the cash. A couple arrested this week for robbing an Ohio bank had posted photos to Facebook showing them posing with stacks of cash in the days following the crime, police report. John Mogan, 28, and Ashley Duboe, 24, are charged with the August 24 robbery of a bank in Ashville, a village 20 miles south of Columbus. Investigators allege that Mogan walked into the bank and gave a note demanding money to a teller, who then handed over cash. A surveillance photo shows the hoodie-wearing robber leaving the bank with a stack of currency in his hands. Mogan is a convicted felon who was just released from prison after serving about five years for robbing a bank in Lancaster, a city 20 miles east of Ashville. A female accomplice was also arrested in connection with Mogan's July 2010 robbery of a Fairfield National Bank branch. Mogan began serving a three-year parole term immediately following his July 19 release from an Ohio state lockup. The heavily tattooed Mogan has the phrases “Loyalty’s Thin” and “Betrayal’s Thick” on opposite cheeks. Investigators allege that prior to driving Mogan to the Ashville bank, Duboe applied makeup to his face and neck to cover numerous tattoos. According to police, four days after the bank robbery, Mogan--with fans of cash in each hand--and Duboe posted a Facebook photo showing them embracing. A “selfie” posted August 31 shows Mogan with a wad of bills in his mouth. The image prompted a relative to complain that the flush Mogan “didn't hook a brother up.” Referring to the loot, Mogan replied, “That's called a McStack.” He then noted that, “I got six bands bra real shit nigga,” before adding, “I'm doing rrree=aaaaalll) good.” Other photos posted to the Facebook page shared by Mogan and Duboe show Mogan pretending that the brick of cash is a phone, as well as his lunch. Mogan and Duboe, seen in the above mug shots, have each been charged with robbery and theft, both felonies, and are locked up in lieu of $250,000 bond in the Pickaway County jail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marjorie Re: Desktop icon size Dear Webby How do I change the size of the icons on my desktop? I can't find any way to don that in the Control panel or anywhere. I don't want to change the resolultion. I want to keep that the way I got it. Thanks Marjorie Dear Marjorie There is probably some official and complicated method for doing that, but there is a sneaky way that ahs worked for many years: Click on an empty spot on the desktop Hold down CTRL SLOWLY roll the scroll wheel on the mouse one notch at a time away from you. That increases icon size. Turning the scroll wheel towards you while holding CTRL will shrink them. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A missionary heard about a native who had five wives. He paid a visit to the native's hut, and sure enough there were five wives. The two men sat outside the hut and talked. The missionery said "You are violating a law of God. Man can only have one wife, so you must go and tell four of those women that they can no longer live here or consider you their husband." The native thought a few moments, then said, "I'll wait here. You tell 'em." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Measuring Cup to Grease Baking Pans If you are using liquid oil in your recipe such as brownies, take the measuring cup that you used to measure the oil and turn it upside down in the baking pan while you are mixing the brownies. The oil will then pool in bottom of pan. Use your fingers or wax paper to coat the pan as your directions recommend. By JackieB [1] ______________________________________________________

That reminds me..... Because of the anti-smoking propaganda and restrictive laws, the percentage of the population that smokes has decreased. Now, if there was any relation between smoking and cancer, the percentage of people who get cancer should theoretically have decreased at exactly the same rate. It didn't. It INCREASED! OK, so what HAS increased at the same rate as cancer ? Taxes on tobacco products. Kinda makes you think, eh ? ___________________________________________________

biking the cliff
____________________________________________________ At a golf course, four men approached the sixteenth tee. The straight fairway ran along a road and bike path fenced off on the left. The first golfer teed off and hooked the ball in that direction. But the ball went over the fence and bounced off the bike path onto the road, where it hit the tire of a moving bus and was knocked back on to the fairway. As they all stood in silent amazement, one man finally asked him, "How on earth did you do that?" He shrugged his shoulders and said, "You have to know the bus schedule." ____________________________________________________
