The colonoscopy went OK. Just the usual, boring waiting for them to
get ready. The results were OK, as I had expected. A $40 parking
ticket waiting for me afterwards was not expected. Alberta Health is
getting too sleazy!

According to the L.A. Fire Department, tens of thousands of people were trapped on escalators and at pedestrian crossings. White and black Americans view the power disaster in starkly different ways, with more blacks viewing race as a factor in problems with the federal response, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. More blacks than whites said they were angry about the government's slow response to the problem, and the blatant discrimination against blacks, non-smokers and the poor. According to polls conducted by CNN and AOL, President Trump is the target of their ire. CNN expects the inevitable looting caused by the Trump administrations failure to deal with the power disaster to start by mid afternoon, and has booked extra advertising for the evening broadcasts. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ a href="http://webby.com/humor/i/HiggsBoson-L.jpg"> Higgs Boson will end the universe Friday afternoon in 10 quinquadragintillion years (one with 139 zeros after it) _____________________________________________________

He radioed a base hospital: 'Have case of beriberi. What shall I do?' A prankster got hold of the message. This was the reply: 'Give it to the Marines. They'll drink anything.' ---------- (Beriberi is Vitamin A deficiency) _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kennecia Posey, 26, Fort Pierce, Florida Florida woman blames cocaine in purse on windy day A Florida woman who was arrested last month on drug possession charges blamed the cocaine found in her purse on the wind. Kennecia Posey, 26, was one of two passengers in a car that was swerving in the roadway when it was stopped by Fort Pierce police March 21. Airline worker busted with 9 pounds of cocaine taped to legs According to the police report, an officer approached the car and smelled an odor of marijuana coming from inside. During a search of the car, the officer found cocaine and marijuana in separate bags inside a purse that Posey had on her lap. When questioned about the drugs, Posey admitted that the marijuana was hers, police said. The cocaine was a different story. "I don't know anything about any cocaine," Posey said, according to the report. "It's a windy day. It must have flown through the window and into my purse." Posey was booked into the county jail on one felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession. She was later released on bond. Tech Support Pits From: . Re: .

Doug went to the eye doctor for an examination because he was having trouble reading the newspaper. "Now that you're over 40," the doctor told him, "you've developed a condition called 'presbyopia,' in which the lens of your eye can no longer focus as well as it used to." Seeing his worried look, the doctor tried to be upbeat. "Con- gratulations!" he said. "You're now officially a presbyope!" Doug leaned over and asked seriously, "If that means I'm no longer a Roman Catholic, do I still have to go to Confession?"

Pastor Dave Charlton tells us, "After a worship service at First Baptist Church in Newcastle, Kentucky, a mother with a fidgety seven-year old boy told me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet. About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, if you don't be quiet, Pastor Charlton is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again!' It worked." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Clutter Control: Online Banking Consider using online banking to cut down on the amount of paperwork you have to organize. Also, most credit card companies allow you to pay bills online and you can have them send you electronic statements by email. It is often more convenient to print out statements and registers when you need them than to find them among a pile of old mail. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ A college drama group presented a play in which one character would stand on a trap door and announce, "I descend into hell!" A stagehand below would then pull a rope, the trapdoor would open, and the character would plunge through. The play was well received. When the actor playing the part became ill, another actor who was quite overweight took his place. When the new actor announced, "I descend into hell!" the stagehand pulled the rope, and the actor began his plunge, but became hopelessly stuck. No amount of tugging on the rope could make him descend. One student in the balcony jumped up and yelled: "Hallelujah! Hell is full!"

___________________________________________________ A little girl was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke up, "Grandpa, did God make you?" "Yes, sweetheart," he answered, "God made me a long time ago." "Oh," she paused, "Grandpa, did God make me too?" "Yes, indeed, honey," he said, "God made you just a little while ago." Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, "God's getting better at it, isn't he?" ___________________________________________________
