Curious about its depth they threw in a pebble and waited for the sound of it striking the bottom, but they heard nothing. They went and got a bigger rock, threw it in and waited. Still nothing. They searched the area for something larger and came upon a railroad tie. With great difficulty , the two men carried it to the opening and threw it in. While waiting for it to hit bottom, a goat suddenly darted between them and leapt into the hole! The guys were still standing there with astonished looks upon their faces from the actions of the goat when a man walked up to them. He asked them if they had seen a goat anywhere in the area and they said that one had just jumped into the mine shaft in front of them! The man replied, 'Oh no. That couldn't be *my* goat, mine was tied to a railroad tie.' _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Tsehainesh from Addis Ababa A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

Dear Webby What is better for phone over the Internet, a headset or a separate microphone and earphones? Thanks Mario Dear Mario If you want to sound like a DJ or if you are participating in teleconferences, get a wireless lapel mike and a mike pre-amplifier with graphic equalizer, and a set of noise canceling cup type earphones. At the opposite end of the quality spectrum is a headset from the dollar store, complete with boom microphone and a too short 3 foot cord. A good compromise is $30 headset with boom mike, and an additional cord extension. 6 wire cords are often ridiculously overpriced and it pays to shop around for those. Otherwise you could wind up paying more for the extension cord than for the head set. Have FUN! DearWebby
Thanks to Billie for bringing back this classic: Thought you might like this one, Peace, Billie Two dogs were walking down the street. One dog says to the other, "Wait here a minute, I'll be right back." He walks across the street and sniffs this fire hydrant for about a minute, then walks back across the street. The other dog says, "What was that about?" The dog first dog says, "I was just checking my pee-mail."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Faux Stained Glass Windows By DOROTHY [3 Posts, 2 Comments] This is a new use for old windows. They took about 2 days to make. Paint the window frames and let dry. Be creative and paint the glass with stained glass paint. Once dry, glue the marbles to the glass then let the glue dry.
The better craft stores and catalogs have liquid stained glass, and leading in a tube. Draw your design on the glass with a pencil or crayon, then use the leading in a tube to draw the boundaries between the colors. With real stained glass that would be tinned or leaded copper foil. Then you make sure you don`t have any unintended breaks in the leading. After that you decide what colors to use in each field, and pour a few drops of that color into that field. The raised bead of leading will confine the color to that field. Depending on the picture you want to create, you can add a drop of modifier, like starburst, ice crystal, flames, etc. The modifiers don`t change the color, just the apparent texture. Half an hour later it is dry and done. I used to create a lot of those in my Hippy years. You can use liquid stained glass on real glass and on plexiglass. Quite often I sandwiched a plexiglass stained window to a real glass window. My favorite trick was to just do a foot high strip for the top of windows, so as not to obstruct the view, but create beautiful colored projections from the sun shining through. Have FUN! DearWebby

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dianne for this: The woman was in labor in the delivery room with her husband at her side coaching her just the way he learned in the Lamaze class. It seemed like an eternity before the doctor finally announced, "I've got the head now; just a few more minutes." "Is it a girl or boy?" the husband asked excitedly. The doctor replied, "At this age it's too hard to tell by the ears." ___________________________________________________
This is what Memorial Day is about, let us remember them.
Thanks to Mary F for this story: There were these two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower and she a widow. They had known one another for a number of years. One evening there was a community supper in the big activity center. These two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on, he made a few admiring glances at her and finally gathered up his courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?" After precisely six seconds of careful consideration, she answered. "Yes, yes, I will." The meal ended and with a few more pleasant exchanges, they went to their respective places. Next morning, he was troubled. "Did she say 'yes' or did she say 'no'?" He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. Not even a faint memory. With trepidation, he went to the telephone and called her. First, he explained to her that he didn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the lovely evening past. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say 'Yes' or did you say 'No'?" He was delighted to hear her say, "Why, I said, 'Yes, yes I will' and I meant it with all my heart." Then she continued, "And I am so glad that you called, because I couldn't remember who had asked me.

Jill, ever the gracious hostess, was serving drinks at one of her parties. A friend of hers brought his brother who had just been ordained a Priest. She offered the friend a drink from the tray and said, "I'm sorry Father, I'll go right back to the kitchen and bring you a coke." The Priest smiled and said "No need to. I may have alcohol. Priests abstain from sex, not the grape." "Oh !" said Jill blushing, "So that's it. I knew it was one or the other that I wasn't supposed to offer you."
