Good Morning, !

Today is Monday, December 3

The Gavle Goat, the huge straw goat in Sweden, is up!

They are still disorganized with the live web cams, but
hopefully they can get them working soon.
Every year it is a competition to see if the good people can
protect the goat, or whether the punks can set it on fire.
Millions of people all over the world watch the web cams 
hoping to see the punks in time to alert the cops and 
fire department.

Once I find a working live web cam, I will post it again, 
as usual. 

Have FUN!

It pays to be obvious, especially if you have a reputation for subtlety. --- Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992) The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work. --- Robert Frost A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic. --- Joseph Stalin (1879 - 1953) ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Martin for returning this classic: A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. As he enters, he asks St. Peter, 'I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?' St. Peter said, 'That's a question only God can answer.' So the zebra went off in search of God. When he found Him, the zebra asked, 'God, please - I must know. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?' God simply replied 'You are what you are.' The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked him, 'Well, did God straighten out your query for you?' The zebra looked puzzled. 'No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.'' St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, 'Well then, there you are. You are white with black stripes.' The zebra asked St. Peter, 'How do you know that for certain?' 'Because,' said St. Peter, 'If you were black with white stripes, God would have said, 'You is what you is.'' (.. Caution...

Little Johnny decides to go home and try it out. He goes home, and as he is greeted by his mother he says, "I know the whole truth." His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, "Just don't tell your father." Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with, "I know the whole truth." The father promptly hands him $40 and says, "Please don't say a word to your mother." Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day when he sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets him by saying, "I know the whole truth." The mailman immediately drops the mail, opens his arms, and says, "Then come give your father a big hug." ______________________________________________________ Camo Cat _____________________________________________________

Thanks to Cookie for this story: A Minnesota Department of Highways employee stopped at a farm and talked with an old farmer. He told the farmer, "I need to inspect your farm for a possible new road." The old farmer said, "OK, but don't go in that field." The Highways employee said, "Listen mister, I have the authority of the State of Minnesota to go where I want. See this card? I am allowed to go wherever I wish on farm land." So the old farmer went over, sat down and picked up his newpaper. Later, he heard loud screams and saw the Department of Highways employee running for the fence and close behind was the farmer's prize bull. The bull was madder than a nest full of hornets and the bull was gaining on the Highways employee at every step. The old farmer called out, "Show him your card, smartass!"
