They were all brought to the same emergency room, but all three of them died before they arrived. Just as they were about to put the toe tag on the Texan, he stirred and opened his eyes. Astonished, the doctors and nurses present asked him what happened. "Well," said the Texan, "I remember the crash, and then there was a beautiful light, and then the Californian and the Scot and I were standing at the gates of heaven. St. Peter approached us and said that we were all too young to die, and said that for a donation of $50, we could return to earth. So of course I pulled out my wallet and gave him the $50, and the next thing I knew was back here." "That's amazing!" said the one of the doctors, "But what happened to the other two?" "Last I saw them," replied the Texan, "the Scot was haggling over the price and the Californian was waiting for the government to pay his." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A man learned shortly before quitting time that he had to attend a meeting. He tried unsuccessfully to locate his car-pool members to let them know that he would not be leaving with them. Hastily he scribbled a message to one fellow and left it on his desk: "I have a last-minute meeting. Leave without me. Dave." At 7:00 p.m., the man stopped at his desk and found this note: "Meet us at the bar and grill across the street. Today is Monday, the day YOU drive." ______________________________________________________ From FB Zhangjiajie National Park China, by Thomas Dawson ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Breeding, 32, Panama City, Floriduh Fisherman's $500K Catch Could Get Him Life in Prison Thomas Breeding chose to sell cocaine bale When commercial fisherman Thomas Breeding found 45 pounds of cocaine floating in the Gulf of Mexico last January, he says he knew the right thing was to turn it over to police. The Florida man instead opted to sell it, a decision that could land him in prison for life. Breeding—a 32-year-old boat captain with drug and weapons convictions, per the Panama City News Herald—says he hadn't "ever been involved in the drug trade before. I was just a hard-working, young commercial fisherman." But the package—worth $500,000 to $620,000 on the street, per AL.com—was apparently too tempting. In June, he gave the cocaine to four others, who sold the drug and paid Breeding a cut. Authorities unraveled the scheme and charged all five with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. Breeding, found with a gun in his vehicle, also was charged with unlawfully transporting a firearm. Like his co-defendants, Breeding pleaded guilty to the drug charge on Wednesday. He now faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $4.25 million fine, and he's warning others not to follow his lead. "I would like to let the public know the dangers and what not to do if this situation comes about," says Breeding, who is to be sentenced Feb. 16. "This changed my life and way of thinking and also made me aware of some of the dangers that can be found off shore." It makes no difference whether he bought it in Mexico or found it near Floriduh. It is cocaine. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dave Re: Transfering pictures Dear Webby I have about 15000 digital photos, all titled and arranged in folders. I also have a new computer. Is there any way to get the pictures, titles and folders into the new computer easily. The program I tried just put the pictures on the CD, nothing else. Thanks for your help. Dave S. Dear David The easiest way is to network the computers. Just get a $4.95 crossover cable and set up a home network, or network via the router. Then you can drag entire folders including their sub-folders over to the new machine. Setting up the home network is easy. Just go into the network set-up wizard and hit Enter a whole bunch of times. There are only very few questions that you have to actually answer. Keep in mind that you will meet some resistance and will have to mess with sharing and permissions, but it's not a big deal. Open all permissions wide. You can always close them after the big move. Then simply drag the directory tree with the pictures to the new machine. Have FUN! DearWebby
One night a father was helping his son with his homework. The father asked "What is the Gross National Product?". The little boy pondered for a minute and replied "Spinach ? Broccoli ?"

____________________________________________________ During an arctic training exercise in Alaska a cold snap played havoc with vehicles and equipment. One harassed new battery commander was trying to cope with vehicles that wouldn't run and machinery that wouldn't work. He was wondering what else could go wrong when the door flew open and a soldier rushed in and announced, "Hey, captain, the northern lights are out! Exasperated and without looking, the captain barked, "Well, don't tell me! Go get the generator mechanic and have him fix the dang things!" ___________________________________________________
Awesome metal and river rock sculptures.
A vacationing golfer was out playing on a course that he had never played before. He hired a caddie from the pro shop to show him the layout of the course, and help him decide what shots to play. On the first tee, the golfer missed his shot, and it dribbled forward about 15 yards. He was slightly embarrassed, but determined to play a better second shot. He hit his second shot into the bordering fairway, and his third shot into a sand trap. By the time he holed out on this Par 4, he was 6 over par. The man turned to his caddie and said, "Well, I have never played this badly before!" To which the caddie replied, "What game are you playing, Sir ?"
