Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains. He told them that after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out. But as he dug with his hands, he realised the snow would fill his car before he managed to break through. He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported. He said: "I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there." Parts of Europe have this week been hit by the heaviest snowfalls since 1941, with some places registering more than ten feet of snow in 24 hours. ------------------- If he had followed the guidelines and stayed with his car, instead of staggering off into the landscape, he would have been rescued the same day. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Nancy got lost in her car in a snow storm. She remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get stuck in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it." Pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got lost or stuck in the snow, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, now you can follow me over to K-Mart" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

Thanks Ulrike Dear Ulrike PayPal is 100% reliable and safe. There are a few cautions to keep in mind though. Don't use PayPal for large payments at the last minute before going on vacation. Their autoresponders may decide to consider them suspicious, stop them and send emails to you to confirm them. If you are on a world cruise, or helping a relative or friend somewhere, or doing missionary or development work in a foreign country, you might come home to a disconnected phone, foreclosed mortgage, re-possessed car, and all kinds of problems, not the least of which is that you will be arguing with autoresponders at PayPal.. However, as long as you keep that in mind and make any large or important payments two weeks before you expect to be off the net for a while, everything is fine. They are just protecting you. The same goes if there is a dispute with a merchant. They will side with you, but will also listen to the merchant side. Naturally, you should read the small print when ordering stuff, especially free samples of supplements, that have in the small print that if you don`t want to automatically sign up for a lifetime of automatic charges, you have to return the free samples 10 days before you receive them. PayPal will still help you, but it won`t be as fast and easy as for example if you have a dispute with a reasonably legitimate vendor. I have dealt with PayPal since around 2000, and have never had a problem with them. Have FUN! DearWebby
A high school teacher arrived late for class to find a most uncomplimentary drawing of herself on the blackboard. Fuming, she asked the class, "Who is responsible for this atrocity?!" The class clown won tremendous prestige among his peers by answering, "I don't know for sure, but it's probably something hereditary."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Indoor Snowball Fight Kit By lalala... [795 Posts, 103 Comments] Supplies: Bernat baby blanket yarn (white) giant pom pom maker scissors Steps: Open one half of the pom pom maker and begin wrapping yarn around it, working your way from one end to the other. Continue wrapping until it is almost full and there is only a slight arched space in the middle. Then clip that half closed and repeat on the other half. Use scissors to cut through the center of the wrapped yarn, along the groove. Repeat on the other side. Cut a length of yarn and pull it firmly into the groove, bringing the ends together. Tie a tight knot. I like to wrap the yarn around a second time and tie another knot. Cut off the excess yarn. Unclip the two sides, then separate the pom pom maker to release the pom pom. Trim any long pieces of yarn, if necessary. Make as many snowballs as you like.

Wonder what it would do if music from Mannheim Steamroller & Trans-Siberian Orchestra was played.
After a lady's car had leaked motor oil on her cement driveway, she bought a large sack of cat litter to soak it up. It worked so well, that she went back to the convenience store to get another bag to finish the job. The clerk remembered her. Looking thoughtfully at her purchase, he said, "Lady, if that were my cat, I'd put her outside!"
