A customer asked him if she could buy half a grapefruit. Not knowing what to do, he excused himself to ask the manager. "Some nut out there wants to buy half a grapefruit..." he began, and, suddenly realizing that the customer had entered the office behind him, continued, " ... and this lovely lady would like to buy the other half." The manager was impressed with the way the clerk amicably resolved the problem and they later started chatting. "Where are you from?" asked the store manager. "Fessairton, Pennsylvania," replied the clerk, "home of ugly women and great hockey teams." "Oh, my WIFE is from Fessairton," challenged the manager. Without skipping a beat, the clerk asked, "What team was she on?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A fourth-grade teacher was giving her pupils a lesson in logic.

I remember that you said to avoid flash if at all possible, but I don't remember what you said about where to place lights. The overhead lights are pretty good and I have room to place hat racks with quartz construction lights on both sides of me. What do you suggest? Brian Put all lights to one side of you. Otherwise you kill contrast. An outstretched arms length or a bit more distance is best. The height of the lights should be a hands width higher than their heads for young people, and about waist high for older people. Low lighting makes double-chins disappear and is generally more flattering to older people. Have FUN! DearWebby
A second grader arrived home after school and shocked his mother by announcing, "Today we learned how to make babies." Risking further embarrassment, the mother asked for details on how to make babies. "It's simple, the boy replied, "Just drop the'y' and add 'ies."

Daily tip from Make Dry Shampoo With Baking Soda and Baby Powder By Dorin [4 Posts, 30 Comments] I mix baking soda with baby powder as a great dry shampoo. I recommend the lavender/chamomile baby powder. The baking soda cleans off build up, and the baby powder soaks up the oil. It's absolutely great when you don't have time for a shower, and gives your hair great body! By Dorinmoz from Sugar Land, TX ____________________________________________________

The salesman asked what the trouble was, and the man said that he couldn't answer the question about the cause of death of his father. The salesman wanted to know why. After some embarrassment the client explained that his father had been hanged. The wise salesman pondered for a moment. "Just write: 'Father was taking part in a public function when the platform gave way.'" ___________________________________________________
Wish I could visit all of these places.
It was mealtime during our trip on a small airline in the South. "Would you like dinner?" the flight attendant asked the man seated in front of me. "What are my choices?" he asked. "Yes or no," she replied. --------------- That's even worse than we used to have at Scare North (Air North). There the choice was: "Frozen or thawed?"

____________________________________________________ >From Edna Dear Webby, can you please try to find that old bricklayer's accident report again? You haven't told that one for five years at least, and I can't find it any more. Thanks Edna No Problem, Edna. I have sent that around since the days when I did it via fax, before the internet. Here it is: I am writing in response to your request for additional information. In block number 3 in the Accident Report Form I put "Lost Presence-of-Mind" as the cause of my accident. You asked in your letter that I should explain more fully, and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer, by trade. On the day of the accident I was working alone on the roof of a new 6 story building. When I completed my work, I discovered I had about 500 pounds of bricks left over. Rather than carry them down by hand, I decided to lower them down in a barrel, using a pully, which fortunately was attached to the building at the 6th floor. Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out, and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went to the ground floor, untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow decent of the 500 pounds of bricks. You will note in block number 3 of the Accident Reporting Form, that I weigh 145 pounds. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence-of-mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a high rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, I met the barrel coming down--this explains the fractured skull and broken collar bone. Slowed, only so slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my hand were 2 knuckles deep into the pully. Fortunately, by this time I had regained my presence-of-mind, and was able to hold tightly to the rope inspite of my increasing pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottem fell out of the barrel. Devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel now weighed approximately 50 pounds. I refer you again to my weight in block number 3, and as you might imagine--I began a rapid decent down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the 3rd floor, yes, I met the barrel coming up, this accounts for the 2 fractured ankles, and the lacerations on my legs and lower body. The encounter with the barrel slowed me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell onto the pile of bricks, and fortunately, only 3 vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, that as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to stand, and watching the empty barrel 6 stories above me, I again lost my presence-of-mind, and let go of the rope. The empty barrel weighed more than the rope--so it came down on me and broke both my legs. I trust I have furnished you the information you require as to how this accident occurred.
