A: For men to be the ones who get pregnant. ______________________________________________________ A man was sitting at a bar enjoying an after-work cocktail when an exceptionally gorgeous & sexy young woman entered. She was so striking that the man could not take his eyes away from her. The young woman noticed his overly-attentive stare and walked directly toward him. Before he could offer his apologies for being so rude, the young woman said to him, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $100 on one condition." Flabbergasted, the man asked what the condition was. The young woman replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words." The man considered her proposition for a moment, withdrew his wallet from his pocket and slowly counted out five $20 bills, which he pressed into the young woman's hand. He looked deeply into her eyes and slowly, meaningfully said, "Clean my house." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Dad for this picture: These bloomed today ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michele Leonard, 47, Somerset, Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania woman who got 2 DUIs same night, same car. Pennsylvania State police say they've arrested a woman for two different drunken driving crashes in the same day. Troopers from Somerset say Michele Leonard, of Somerset, crashed her car about 5 p.m. Saturday. She was arrested, charged with drunken driving and then released. Police say that's when Leonard offered a stranger $3 for a ride back to her crashed vehicle, which she entered and began driving again. Police say Leonard again lost control of the car, and sideswiped a parked car in Somerset Township about 6 p.m., then crashed into a garage, which she destroyed along with a pick-up parked in it and thousands of dollars worth of special tools.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Donna Re: Ergo Keyboard Dear Webby, For the lady with the keyboard problem with her laptop... as a former personal trainer regular keyboards and laptop keyboards especially being so small are terrible for your wrists, causing pinches nerves and are just carpal tunnel waiting to happen. Just look at the angle of your inner wrist as you try to type! My suggestion would be an ergonomic keyboard. Yes they take some getting used to (after two weeks about 10 years ago, I was ready to pitch mine out the window...learning that for 30 years I had been typing the letter N with the wrong finger!)...but I perservered. The light bulb went on after about two weeks, and not only did my wrists quit hurting but my typing speed improved. I agree with you that cost should not be an issue, my Microsoft Ergo Keyboards lasted over 10 years and are still functional. Donna Dear Donna Microsoft was afraid of getting hit with class action law suits and commissioned the research and development for their Ergonomical keyboard. Because of the ridiculous pricing those didn't really catch on, but they sure protected Microsoft from lawsuits. With a reasonable price and an adjustable curvature, they would have been successful, but even as they are, they are still available for people with carpal tunnel syndrome or other wrist injuries, and who get somebody else to pay for the insane $75 - $120 price for $1.49 worth of plastic. There are some split keyboards available at reasonable cost, that are very good if somebody has a wrist injury. Up until the 80's, when there were still typing pools and fast typists, they said that a keyboard should be as wide as the typist's shoulders. Well, all the 120 wpm typists have retired, and wide keyboards are getting very scarce. Personally, I just use a wide Kensington keyboard and a slick wrist rest as high as the keyboard. That works well for me. The wrist rest is very important. A 1"x 4" board sanded and varnished works just fine, especially when sprayed with Moly mold release or furniture spray to make it nice and slick on top, and sticky drawer liner mesh underneath. You would really be surprised how that makes typing effortless and painless even after an injury. And faster too. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ One evening after dinner, Little Johnny noticed that his mother had gone out and he asked, "Where did mommy go?" Dad told him, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Dad?" Little Johnny's father had always given his son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," he said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other." Little Johnny burst into laughter. "Come on, Dad," Little Johnny said. "I'm not THAT silly. Mom always says that Tupperware is the cheapest at Walmart! What are they really doing?" ___________________________________________________

five guys playing one piano ____________________________________________________ A traveling evangelist always put on a grand finale at his revival meetings, When he was to preach at a church, he would secretly hire a small boy to sit in the ceiling rafters with a dove in a cage. Toward the end of his sermon, the preacher would shout for the Holy Spirit to come down, and the boy in the rafters would dutifully release the dove. At one revival meeting, however, nothing happened when the preacher called for the Holy Spirit to desend. He again raised his arms and exclaimed: "Come down, Holy Spirit!" Still no sign of the dove. Then preacher heard the anxious voice of a small boy call down from the rafters: "Sir, a big black cat just ate the Holy Spirit. Shall I throw down the cat?" ____________________________________________________ A young married couple lived in a cheap housing complex. Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper-thin and that they had no privacy. This was painfully obvious when one morning the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone. She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbor. "Give this to your husband," he said thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands. "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!" ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders I readied my camera to be sent off for repairs, put it in the original box, wrapped and put the address label on it. However, I had to open the package up to put in the check I forgot, resealed the box and took it to the post office where I bought insurance (for a $2,000 camera) and postage and got it mailed off. Later that afternoon, one of the twins came home from school with really bad grades on a paper. I spent 30 minutes telling him how he needed to pay attention to what he was doing as most of his mistakes were from not paying attention to what he was doing or reading. After the lecture, I sent him out to play and sat down at my desk pondering how can I impress upon him the importance of paying attention to what heís doing. As I was in the midst of my thinking, I started cleaning my desk and it was then that I noticed my camera sitting there on the desk. It was then I realized I mailed and insured an empty box. Well, thatís not quite right, there is paperwork and the $10 check in the box. Noella ____________________________________________________
