They had been in good health the last ten years, in spite of of her interest in health food and exercise. When they reached the Pearly Gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and a master bath suite with a sauna and Jacuzzi. As they "oohed and aahed" the old man asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. "It's free," Peter replied. "This is heaven." Next they went out back to survey the championship golf course that the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course would change to new one that represented one of the great golf courses on Earth. The old man asked, "What are the green fees?" Peter's reply: "This is heaven; you play for free." Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisines of the world laid out. "How much to eat?" asked the old man. "Don't you understand yet? This is heaven; it is free!" Peter replied with some exasperation. "Well, where are the low-fat and low-cholesterol tables?" the old man asked timidly. Peter lectured, "That's the best part: You can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is heaven." With that, the old man threw down his hat, stomped on it, and shrieked wildly. Peter and his wife both tried to calm him down, asking him what was wrong. The old man looked at his wife and said, "This is all your fault. If it weren't for your blasted bran muffins, I could have been here ten years ago!" With THIS LINK you get 50% off!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lee Merrett jailed for punching partner and baby at Dymchurch caravan park Lee Merret 23 Dymchurch, England A mother clutched her bruised, nine-month-old child in her arms after fleeing her drunk partner on a Dymchurch caravan park. The terrified woman frantically ran to nearby homes at the New Beach Park to try to raise the alarm after bully Lee Merrett beat her and punched her baby in the face. The mum – who had been hit several times by bully Lee Merrett – banged on several doors before someone came to her aid. Now, 23-year-old Merrett has been jailed for 15 months for the assaults, which a judge described as "frankly unforgivable, disgraceful and cowardly". Prosecutor Scott Brady told Canterbury Crown Court that Merrett and the woman had come to the park for a week’s holiday last July. During the day, Merrett, 23, had downed most of a bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey before the two began arguing. Mr Brady said Merrett wanted to go and play in the amusement arcade but the woman asked him to stay with her and their child. He said: "She lay on the bed with the child in her arms when the argument began over his drinking. At this point he punched her in the face repeatedly, causing bruising and leaving her with marks near her left eye, and marks to her neck." During the argument, Merrett picked up an aerosol can and threw it at his partner, hitting her in the right arm, leaving a bruise. "Violence against a child of his age is frankly unforgivable" - Judge Simon James The prosecutor added that Merrett also punched the crying baby in the face, leaving him with a swollen black eye, before headbutting his lover in the back of the head. "It was at this point she managed to escape from the caravan and she went to a number of caravans, banging on the doors, until she found someone to let her and her child inside, and called the police," he said. Merrett, from Walsall in the West Midlands, who admitted two assaults, was found hiding under a caravan by officers. He later told police he had been drinking whiskey and lager since 7pm and had wanted to go to the arcades. The prosecutor added that she claimed she was struck 20 times during the argument and their three-year relationship was now at an end. Judge Simon James told him: "You punched your young child in the face, causing bruising. "Violence against a child of his age is frankly unforgivable. "It was a disgraceful and cowardly act. It was your job to protect your child, not subject him to violence." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Doris RE: Protect printed pictures Dear Webby, I read that printed pictures should be behind UV-protective glass if displayed on a an inside wall. Is that true and where would I get that kind of glass ? Doris Dear Doris UV does not go through glass. That is why you don't get a sun tan working inside a house. Inkjet pictures fade over time just from oxidation. Sprying them with a good varnish delays that. And naturally, a glass picture frame will protect them quite well. Laser printed pictures last much longer. They are protected by the wax, that carries the pigments. However, they too last longer if they are in a glass picture frame. Whenever somebody tries to con you into paying extra for UV-protective glass, then you know they are lying crooks. Any cheap glass will block UV. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Steve wasn't feeling well and so he went to the doctor to get himself checked. After a thorough examination, the doctor said, "Well, Steve, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up alcohol, and stop smoking." "To be honest with you, Doc," said Steve, "I don't deserve the best. What's the SECOND best?" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Painting a Bird Bath By Elaine [7 Posts, 32 Comments] Good morning.. I suggest that you use "Patio Paints" made by DecoArt- they are strictly for indoor/outdoor projects and I do have a few instructions leaflets for birdbaths from Terra Cotta Pots and it suggests to use these type paints. Good luck..oh, you can find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I have not seen them at any Walmart. Best is a Porch & Floor paint. For a bird bath use light colors. Battleship Grey or Light Grey seem to work best. Somehow birds feel more comfortable with those colors than with dark or bright colors. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Heather and Marcy hadn't seen each other in awhile, so they decided to meet for lunch. The talk naturally got around to their respective love lives. Marcy confided that there really wasn't anyone special in her life. Heather, on the other hand, was beaming about the new man she had found. "He's perfect. He's handsome, and last night when we went out to dinner, he said the five little words I've been waiting to hear a man say to me!" "He said 'Heather, will you marry me'?" Marcy asked. Heather replied, "No, he said 'Tonight I'll pay for supper'." ___________________________________________________

One family asked to enter to Elvis Presley's hit, "Love me Tender." The day of the funeral arrived and the music was started ready for the family to walk in to the service. Unfortunately the wrong track number was entered into the CD player, and the family found themselves walking in to, "Return to Sender." ____________________________________________________
