He made a special case of making fun of Morris, one of the older workmen. After several minutes, Morris had enough. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" he said. "I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back." "You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "It's a bet! Let's see what you got." Morris reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in." ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find 'something exciting' and relate it to the class the next day. When the time came to present what they'd found, the first little boy the teacher called on, walked up to the front of the class...... and with a piece of chalk, made a small white dot on the blackboard and then sat back down. Puzzled, the teacher asked him what it was. "It's a period," he replied. "I can see that," said the teacher, "but what is so 'exciting' about a period?" "I don't know," he said, "but yesterday my sister was 'missing' one. Then my mommy fainted; daddy had a heart attack, the preacher across the street drove off a cliff, and Willie, next door, ran off and joined the Navy. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Randy Bolstad, 42, La Crosse, Wisconsin La Crosse, Wisconsin burglar leaves money, probation papers behind, locks himself out and calls 911 for help. La Crosse police nabbed a suspected burglar who left money and probation papers behind and called 911 for help getting back inside the business. According to a criminal complaint, Randy Bolstad called 911 on Saturday afternoon to say he had lost money in the King on Fifth building and said he was going to break in if officers didn’t respond. Bolstad could not explain to the dispatcher how he had gotten inside the building to lose his money, and police who responded were unable to locate him Saturday. Police responded to the building Monday morning after a caller reported his laptop computer was missing and said he’d found condoms and loose change in the bathroom of his business. In the bathroom trash can, an officer found probation paperwork for Bolstad. Officers found Bolstad Monday walking through the Viterbo University campus without shoes, according to the complaint. When questioned about the theft of the laptop, he responded, “I choose death.” Bolstad, who was sentenced in November to three years probation for robbery, was charged Tuesday with one count of burglary. He was being held on a $1,000 cash bond and a probation violation. He wont have to worry about cooking Christmas dinner. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Alexa Re: Speakers Dear Webby, I need louder speakers, and if possible better quality, because we use Internet radio as background music in the warehouse. However, I found that $69 and $129 speakers are not really any better than $14.95 speakers. What do you recommend? Alexa Dear Alexa Go to a second hand store or pawn shop and get yourself a boom box (portable stereo system) or old home stereo system. They are quite cheap and usually have great sound. Unlike new and shrink-wrapped systems at a music store, the people in used goods stores usually let you plug them in and listen to them. Then just cut off the wires going to the speakers and connect them to the AUX IN connectors on the boom box or stereo, the connectors made for input from a record player or tape deck. That way you have the amplification and control, often even with an equalizer, and plenty of volume. Have FUN! DearWebby

Automatically move ALL your settings and programs. No need to re-install them. The only mover recommended by Intel and Microsoft. Thanks to Cookie for this report: The Immigration Officer said, "Mujibar, you have passed all the tests so far, there is only one test left. Unless you pass it you cannot enter the United States of America. Make a sentence using the words, Yellow, Pink and Green." Mujibar said, "The telephone goes green, green, green, and I pink it up, and say, 'Yellow, this is Mujibar.'" Mujibar now works for Verizon. I know because I talked to him yesterday.

Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today's world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn't give their domain names enough consideration: 1. A site called 'Who Represents' where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name... wait for it... is www.whorepresents.com 2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com 3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at www.penisland.net 4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at www.therapistfinder.com 5. Then of course, there's the Italian Power Generator company... www.powergenitalia.com 6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales: www.molestationnursery.com 7. If you're looking for computer software, there's always www.ipanywhere.com 8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website is www.cummingfirst.com 9. Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their whacky website: www.speedofart.com 10.

Try their brochure website at www.gotahoe.com ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycling Spray Bottles When you use up a cleaning product that is in a spray bottle, save the spray bottle for your own homemade cleaning products. Be sure to clean it thoroughly as mixing some chemicals, like bleach and ammonia, can create a dangerous gas. Remove the label and mark the bottle clearly so it is not mistaken for something else (and keep up out of the reach of children as with any cleaning product). Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Ed was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really perturbed. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds. AND IT BETTER BE THERE". The next morning Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a small box, gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Funeral services for Ed have been scheduled for Friday!
Interesting old photos.
When your wife says, "What do you think?" she is not asking for YOUR opinion. She is asking for HER opinion, from your mouth. ___________________________________________________
