The Principal advised the parents to closely follow-up with their children, especially to see if they had any questions. That night, one parent decided to put it into action. He called his older son into the study and requested that he instruct his younger brother about the "birds and the bees" talk he gave to his son two years ago; thinking to spare himself the ordeal all over again. The boy agreed and called in his younger brother. "Hey Herman," he said, "Want to know something ?" "What ?" the younger lad asked. "You know how a man and a woman get together when they want to have kids ?" "Yeah, so?" "Well...dad wants me to tell you that birds and bees and flowers do the same thing." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ One day a child at my four-year-old's preschool class told her classmates that she needed a 'damp towel.' Some of the other kids thought she said a naughty word and told on her. The teacher stepped in to explain, "If your mommy asked you to bring her a damp towel, what does she want?" A little girl blurted out, "She means she wants that towel right now!" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Casey Lynn Willey, 27, Gainesville, Florida Florida woman caught attacking bouncer using 12-pack of beer as weapon Casey Lynn Willey, 27, was being removed from the Gainesville, Florida, nightclub Eight Seconds by a bouncer when she allegedly struck him with the case of beer, according to the Alligator. Willey was being removed from the club because she refused to leave after the country music nightclub had closed after 3 a.m. Authorities handcuffed her, but she tried to escape while police conducted an investigation. She also refused to give her name or date of birth, and was violent toward officers, according to a report obtained by the Alligator. Willey eventually gave authorities the information they needed before aggressively stepping toward an officer. The bouncer did not wish to press charges. Willey was arrested, charged with disorderly conduct and taken to Alachua County Jail. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: George J Re: Default picture viewer Dear Webby, Is there any way I can get the Windows Picture and FAX Viewer to open images automatically instead of Microsoft Photo Editor when I click on Photos and Images? I can right click on the thumbnail and then choose the program, but that is an extra step and I want it automatic on left click! George J Dear George While I would not use either of those programs myself, I use PSP, there is a way that you can tell Windows what program to use by default. Click on START, Control Panel Folder Options File Types In there find the icons for GIF, JPG, etc highlight them and click on CHANGE then select the Windows Picture and Fax viewer. Do that for all picture formats that you want to open automatically with that program. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Connie for this story: My husband's grandmother passed away and for many months afterwards my father-in-law made repeated phone calls to attempt to stop companies from sending mail to the house for his deceased mother. In frustration, he finally went to the post office and filled out a change of address card, changing her address to the Jefferson Memorial Park where she was laid to rest. It worked! No more mailings came to the house.

One trick to create the illusion that you are home is to put a few lights on a timer. Individual timers can be found at the hardware store. Program the individual lights to turn on for a while each night. It's also a good idea to have someone visit your house every couple days to make sure mail, newspapers, or packages aren't piling up. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Just came across this from a 2006 Humor Letter: Kudos go to Scotland's lawmakers The "Serious Organized Crime and Police Act 2005" in Scotland gives police the authority to seize and crush the cars of people driving without insurance or without a driver's license. "The region's top police officer said yesterday a "clear message" is being sent to would-be offenders." "Unlicensed and uninsured drivers are a threat to all road users, and we aim to remove that threat by removing their means of transport," said Mr Vine. "In other words, if they have no licence, no insurance, then soon they will have no car." The chief constable said, "There will be no period of grace. The law is the law." -------------- If the US adopted that law, GM and Ford might become profitable again! __________________________________________________
Sweden seems to have more vintage 1950s American cars than America.

Just a quick note to thank you, once again, for the Humour Letter... not a day goes by that I don't get a giggle from it and more importantly learn something new from it. As you know constant learning keeps me young...at this rate I may need a good contact for a play-pen....lol. Ann D. ____________________________________________________
