Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside. --- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. --- Plato ______________________________________________________ What's the Heirloom Christmas Book about? It is a BIG e-book with all the stories, that your great grandmother recited or read to your grandmother, when she was a kid. I want these stories to be preserved. You may know what it is about, when somebody mentions "bittersweet love like in 'The Gift Of The Magi'," but with today's education, your kids or even their teachers, probably don't know. So I collected these classics and put them all together into one e-book. This book of Christmas Stories is a cultural treasure, that should be passed on to our descendants. Since it is in e-book format, you can put it onto a CD for each kid, and fill the rest of the CD with family pictures and other keepsakes, making it a true heirloom. I have produced a smaller version last year. This final edition has more stories and illustrations, but I kept the price down to the same $10. The Heirloom Christmas Book also makes a nice Christmas gift!

Their biggest fear was that there was no afterlife. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made contact, "Connie....Connie." "Is that you, Joe?" "Yes, I've come back like we agreed." "That's wonderful! What's it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud- lots of greens) another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again. Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again." "Oh, Joe you surely must be in Heaven!" "Not exactly... I'm a rabbit on a golf course in Arizona ." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Cookie for this story: (As sent by her, from the hospital) Cookie, Upset over the recent death of her husband Bob, So she decided to just kill herself And join him in death.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Heather Mapes, 43, Des Moines, Iowa Mom drove to school drop-off while drunk, nearly plowed into elementary students Police said a Des Moines mother drove to the school drop-off while drunk and nearly plowed into a group of elementary students. Heather Mapes, 43, is in jail Monday after police charged her with child endangerment. Police said Mapes was drunk, with slurred speech and watery eyes, as she swerved into the bus lane at Garton Elementary School and narrowly missed hitting a group of students. "(It is) probably one of the worst-case scenarios, when you think about it," said Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek. Parizek said Mapes was dropping off her 5-year-old daughter when she hit the curb, and that the curb prevented her from hitting students getting off the bus. "It's really scary, because we've got not just her children involved, which is bad enough, but now you're putting the children of a lot of other families at risk when you show up at the school in that condition," he said. Jessica Bensley, whose 7-year-old daughter attends the school, said she is thankful her child is safe. "That's really scary that my daughter goes here and that could have been her," Bensley said. A bus driver, the principal and the dean of students at Garton Elementary intervened and wouldn't let Mapes leave the scene. According to a police report, Mapes told officers, "I didn't hit the kids." "There was a little bit of a dispute that began between Mapes and one of the staff members at the school where there might have been some pushing and shoving," Parizek said. "They called 911 (and) did the absolute right thing to keep the kids safe." School officials also reported that Mapes had her 5-year-old daughter in the front seat without a seat belt or a booster seat. Police reports said Mapes told school officials that she had taken prescription medications, but the school officials reported smelling alcohol. "She might need some help, you know, and I hope that she can be honest and say that, because there (are) other people's lives that are at factor and that she needs to be concerned about that," Bensley said. A spokesperson for Des Moines Public Schools said the district commends the principal, dean of students and bus driver for their quick response in making sure the incident did not turn out worse.

Having been married ten years and still living in an apartment, Keli would often complain about anything, as she was tired of saving every penny to buy a "dream home". Trying to placate her, Greg found a new apartment, within their budget. However, after the first week, she began complaining again. "Greg," she said, "I don't like this place at all. There are no curtains in the bathroom. The neighbors can see me every time I take a bath." "Don't worry." replied Greg. "If the neighbors do see you, they'll buy curtains."

The programmer arrived, unpacked his case, did mysterious programmer-type things for a while, and handed the lawyer a bill for $600. The lawyer exclaimed, "This is ridiculous!
