"I dreamed I was on vacation," one man said fondly. "It was just me and my fishing rod and this big beautiful lake. What a dream." "I had a great dream too," said the other. "I dreamed I was in bed with two beautiful women and having the time of my life." His companion looked over and exhorted, "You dreamed you had two women, and you didn't call me?" "Oh, I did," said the other, "but when I called, you'd gone fishing." With THIS LINK you get 50% off!

An attractive young girl, chaperoned by a rather scary looking older woman, entered the doctor's office. "We have come for an examination" said the young girl. "All right," smiled the doctor. "Go behind that curtain and take your clothes off." "No, not me" said the girl. "It's my aunt here." "Very well," said the doctor. "Madam, stick out your tongue and say AHH." ______________________________________________________ An man remarks, "You always carry my photo in your handbag to the office. Why?" "When there is a problem, no matter how impossible," replies his wife, "I look at your picture and the problem becomes relatively insignificant." "You see how miraculous and powerful I am for you?" says the man. "Yes, I see your picture and say to myself, 'Just how bad is this problem, ...... compared to him?'" ______________________________________________________ Fox pups at the end of my street ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Georgia mom arrested for sitting on toddler’s head for one hour Susan Elizabeth Kelley, Kennesaw, Georgia A Kennesaw woman was arrested after police said she sat on her 2-year-old son’s head for an hour. Susan Elizabeth Kelley placed her son’s head on the seat portion of a wooden dining room chair with a towel placed under the child’s head, according to a warrant obtained Monday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The accused sat on the child’s head, with full body weight, for approximately 1 hour in an attempt to gain ‘submission’ from the child,” according to the warrant. The child, who had redness on his head, chest and back, became unresponsive and was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. He is expected to make a full recovery, according to the warrant. Kelley was arrested on a charge of first degree cruelty to children. She was released from the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on $55,220 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Michael RE: Microsoft has admitted that they are mugging Dear Webby Microsoft has admitted that the W10 Pop-Ups are deceptive and "X"ing out of them is treated as approving the installation of W10. Michael Dear Michael Yes, the Department of Sleaze has indeed been getting scared of Archie Bunker, Jr. and very desperate. They want everybody enslaved by W10 before the election gets serious. Their newest sleazy trick is that infamous W10 Pop-Up. Ever since Windows 1 the X in the right hand top corner has meant: "Stop! Don't do anything! Just get me outa here!" Now, when everybody has been trained to that, and the term "X-ing out of there" has become part of the language, With the W10 Mugging Pop-Up it signals "Yes, Install W10" Do NOT hit the X unless you DO want W10 ! Click on the "here", that I circled in red. In the PopUp it is a yuppie style NOT underlined link, unlike the underlined compatibility report link further down. It is purposly almost hidden and hard to spot. Hit that "here" and set the W10 installation date to Feb 29, 2099 Please note: The "x out of here" perversion does not apply to anything else. All software and the rest of Windows use the "X" in the traditional way, like it has been used since Windows 1. Yes, I know that is extremely sleazy, but the Department of Sleaze is in a panic and freaking out about the thought, that you might escape. What is funny is that, as Cindy has found out, their legal department overrules the Department Of Sleaze. If you let it install W10, but at the end refuse to accept their terms and refuse to give all rights on everything including to not yet ordered pizza to Microsoft, then they un-install, take their marbles and waddle away in a pout. They may or may not try again, but setting the installation date to 2099 seems to work well. I did that years ago, and they have not bothered me since. Even funnier is that W10 is not really that bad. It is about as good as XP was before the Service Packs and works well enough. W10 is just klutzy and awkward because they use an awkward user interface designed by somebody's dopey niece. If you get the very popular third party Classic Shell, it is just as good as W7. So far over 15 Million people use Classic Shell. You can get it free at There are other shells available too, but Classic Shell is the best known and has a good forum. Hopefully Microsoft will use it in W11 or W12. Good Luck!

"The glaciers brought them down," said the guide. "But where are the glaciers?" "The glaciers," said the guide in a weary voice, "have gone back for more rocks." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Recipe: Ham With Pineapple By Vi Johnson [287 Posts, 800 Comments] Ingredients: 1 lb. sliced ham 1/2 cup pineapple juice 4 slices pineapple 12 marshmallows Directions: Bake ham for 30 minutes.

_____________________________________________________ Jason was having a tough day and had stretched himself out on the couch to do a bit of what he thought to be well- deserved complaining and self-pitying. He moaned to his wife, "Nobody loves me ... the whole world hates me!" His wife, busily occupied with other things, hardly looked up at and passed on this encouraging word: "That's not true, Jason. Can't be everybody. Some people don't know you." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Daughter: Mom, Can I have some money for a new dress? Mother: Go ask your father, dear. You are getting married in a month and you need the practise. ____________________________________________________ The impish girl turned on the tractor and pushed the outhouse into the creek. Later, her father told her the story of George Washington chopping down his father's cherry tree but wasn't spanked because he had told the truth. The girl proudly announced, "I cannot tell a lie. I pushed the outhouse into the creek." He told her to bend over and the shocked child protested that George Washington had not been punished. The father replied, "Well, George's father wasn't IN the cherry tree when it got chopped down!" --------------- That story inspired the Outhouse Races on Lakeelse Lake in northern BC in the 60's and early 70s. It seems the people living there now are not as adventurous as we used to be. Instead of paddling a 4 foot x 4 foot ( 1.2 m x 1.2 m ) raft with a 6 foot high outhouse on it across the lake, they now have a wine tasting party and raffle off a boat. ____________________________________________________
