I said, "According to the program flier, it's supposed to be a cowboy on his horse." "Supposed to be!", she sneered.

Finally, as evening approached, they realized that it was time to go. So they signaled the bartender and told him they wanted to pay their tab. The bartender left and returned, saying the total bar bill was $3.00. "Three dollars," they gasped, and one said, "Surely you must be wrong, it has to be more than $3.00, we've been here all afternoon. We must have had 10 beers apiece." "That's right" said the bartender, "thirty beers at ten cent's apiece, that's $3.00." The men were amazed that the beer was so cheap, but the bartender went on to explain, "You see," he said, "I won the lottery and I wanted to open a bar where folks could come and drink for a reasonable price and have fun. So I use my lottery winnings to subsidize the cost, that's why drinks are so cheap." The men nodded, but one of them asked the bartender, "Those two guys over there, they've been here for two hours and they haven't had anything to drink, what's going on?" "Oh those guys" the bartender replied, "they're from Florida. They are waiting for happy hour." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for this picture: Another rare October bloomer bloomed Oct 31. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jacklyn Suzanne Stacey Birthdate: December 31, 1969 Height: 5'03"Weight: 120 lb Crestview, Floriduh Woman mails contraband to jail, blames inmate A woman accused of trying to get her jailed ex-boyfriend in trouble mailed him six strips of a narcotic substance, lawmen say. A corrections officer detected the illegal drugs while checking incoming mail. When he asked the inmate about them, the man said that he only got mail from two people – his mother and the mother of his child. He added that the mother of his child, Jacklyn Suzanne Stacey, a known and previously arrested meth-head, has been trying to get him in trouble to get custody of their child. Stacey’s age and address are not listed on her Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. The reason given is that she is a former law enforcement official or the spouse or child of a law enforcement officer. The info is on the web because of her prior arrests. When deputies interviewed Stacey, she admitted attaching the orange strips to the envelope and mailing them to the inmate. She said he’d requested that she do it, according to her arrest report. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From John Re: VCR to DVD problems Dear Webby, Sorry for taking up so much of your time, but Im in a bind again. There are three parts to my problem. 1.. A couple of years ago I purchased a DVD Video recorder/Video cassette recorder. (TOSHIBA) model DVR630KCn to convert my VHS tapes to disc / It took me a while to get it figured out , . I am copying thirty min programs on each disc, with up to 4 blocks on each disc ,This is fine , but they wont play back on any other machine, eg.my computer, with windows seven. I have fromated each disc before I start and finalized it after, Any Suggestions . 2. My daughter is having the same problem, , only she is using one of them converters that she plugs into an VCR and into her hard drive. 3. where is the best place to buy DVD-RWS by the gross. with no shirts. Thank for you help, Have fun 4 Am I using the proper discs??????? John B Dear John I asked Jerome from http://nacards.net, the real expert in these matters: His reply was First a quick answer for John. You can only use DVD-R’s for use of video. You stated that you formatted each one which tells me you are using DVD-RW’s Your DVD recorder does a good job of recording. To play on a newer DVD player that accepts avi, wav, or mp4 formats, you can directly copy those to the disk. Jerome Have FUN! DearWebby Thanks to Flo for this one: Soon after our last child left home for college, my husband was resting next to me on the couch with his head in my lap. I carefully removed his glasses. "You know, honey," I said sweetly, "Without your glasses you look like the same handsome young man I married." "Honey," he replied with a grin, "Without my glasses, you still look pretty good too!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Earning Money Online By Suntydt [75 Posts, 877 Comments] 14 found this helpful I saw the "Auctions for Income" infomercial the other night. It looked interesting, but I am always skeptical about infomercials. I did a quick search via Google and the majority of the sites that popped up on the first page of results basically yelled "SCAM!" in just as many words. As mentioned there is a way to make money via eBay, but you need a product people want that everyone else isn't selling. My advise to anyone interested in doing something like this is to consider items that can be used on multiple sites. For example, I go to yard sales, flea markets, Goodwill, and pawn shops and buy DVDs. Usually the more I buy, the cheaper I can get the product. I verify every disc is in like new condition before I make my offer. I list my items first on Amazon. Items that either don't have a listing or are selling for pennies on Amazon, I try to list on another site. On this other site, you trade DVDs (you pay for shipping when someone asks for one of your DVDs). As you mail DVDs you get to request DVDs. About once a week I go through the recently posted DVDs and see if any are going for big bucks on Amazon. If they are I request them and when they show up I list them on Amazon. For the DVDs that I can't put on Amazon or aren't listable on the trading site, I post them on eBay. If they sell, great. If they don't, I can always have my own yard sale when the summer comes back around. It takes a bit of organization and attention to detail, but it works. For example, last month I was at a pawn shop in a town I only get to on occasion. I stopped there as an after thought. They were packed with DVDs. I bought 180 DVDs at .70 cents each - roughly $125. In the first week I sold 10 and made $73, more than half of what I paid. You won't be a millionaire anytime soon, but it will keep you busy and you make some money. The added benefit is if this is something you enjoy - I love it :) And just as another note for success: when I start listing DVDs on Amazon, I double check their condition. I only post DVDs in "Like New or Very Good" condition (usually I only post "Very Good" DVDs when there are few of them for sale and they appear hard to get). I also check the DVDs when I have an order and pack them for shipment. Reputation I believe is vey important to many people who shop online, and my profile only brags about the quality of what I sell (selling more in the long run). And when I slip the paper of the order in the package I always include a note: I thank them for the order and I ask them to go back to Amazon and leave feedback. If this sounds like something you are interested in you can do the same thing with paperback books and CDs. I am sure there are other things as well, but I'm having fun with what I am doing so I haven't looked for anything else Second note to success: the lowest price I sell something covers my costs and makes me a dollar. Costs include the packing materials, postage, and the gas to get to and from the post office. So these three things plus one dollar is my minimum price for a product. That's just good business. Have fun, meet people and make some money. Or as they say in the races "Ready, Set, GO!" By suntydt from Tazewell, TN

I put up a large sign - "Last-Minute Wedding Gifts Here!" Many came to check it out! ____________________________________________________ A woman went to her doctor's office. She was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she explained. He had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched back to the first and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The new doctor smiled smugly as he continued to write on his clipboard. "Cured her hiccups though, didn't it?" "Idiot!", the older doctor hissed at him, "Three prescriptions and a couple of months of hiccups therapy would have gone a lot further towards paying off your student loan, and would have eventually cured her hickups too." ____________________________________________________
