When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it. --- Bernard Bailey ______________________________________________________ Then there was the hillbilly woman who came to the hospital to have her first child. A year later she was back for a second child. The next year, almost like clockwork, she was back for her third child. The hospital staff naturally began to expect her, and she was there, just like clockwork. In the twelfth year - she didn't show, and the staff wondered what happened...A couple of years later she shows up, but she's not pregnant. The hospital staff wonder what happened - did her husband die, or what? When asked why she hadn't been there having a baby the past couple of years, she replied: "No, no more. Found out what was causin' it." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ >From Vince: When my wife says, "Do you know what we need to do?" it's a pretty safe bet, that she doesn't really mean "we." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Just as she was celebrating her 80th birthday, our friend received a jury-duty notice. She called to remind the people at the clerk's office that she was exempt because of her age. "You need to come in and fill out the exemption forms," they said. "I've already done that," she replied. "I did it last year." "You have to do it every year," she was told. "Why?" came the response. "Do you think I'm going to get younger without telling anybody?" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Doulton Phillips, 17, Southampton Great Britain British dad bit his baby’s nose and shook him to death Neighbours recalled hearing ‘blood-curdling screams’ as Doulton Phillips killed his son Reggie. The teenager, now 17, can be named for the first time after jurors found him guilty of murder. Doulton Phillips bit his baby’s nose before violently swinging him to death His identity was protected while he stood trial alongside his girlfriend Alannah Skinner, 19, the baby’s mother. Jurors found Skinner, who was 18 at the time, guilty of child cruelty for failing to protect or seek help for her baby. Phillips fractured the baby’s skull and ribs, leaving him with a broken leg and bruises, a court heard. The ‘deliberate’ attack happened in the early hours of February 11 at Skinner’s one-room flat in Southampton after they spent the night drinking vodka and beer at a neighbour’s party. Prosecutor Adam Feest QC said the series of injuries showed how the baby met with a ‘violent end’. ‘Residents across the road recall hearing what they described as a blood-curdling or painful scream coming from the flat at about 3am,’ he added. One neighbour heard ‘a gut-wrenching cry of pain coming from a baby’ and the ‘sort of screaming that turned her stomach’, he said. When the baby was taken to hospital, Phillips told a neighbour: ‘What have I done?’ But he later claimed to police that Reggie accidentally fell from the sofa when having his nappy changed, or fell from his arms while the couple were arguing. Mr Feest said the explanation could not account for the ‘severity or multiplicity of the injuries sustained’. He added: ‘They are more in keeping with a violent shaking or swinging, or indeed both.

Thanks to Dianne for this wise advice: Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married. The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.' I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!' Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed three times. Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another nine times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even when totally smashed... three cuckoos plus nine cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos— MIDNIGHT!) The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him 'MIDNIGHT.' He didn't seem annoyed in the least. Whew, I got away with that one! Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.' When I asked him why, he said, 'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said, 'oh, shit.' Cuckooed four more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, farted and tripped over the coffee table. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Give A Live Plant Instead Of A Bouquet Instead of a flower bouquet that will be wilted and in the trash in a week or two, consider buying a plant. It could be a houseplant or something to plant in the yard in the spring. You can enclose a card saying, "Watch our love grow!" Thriftyfun.com Your plant could even be some herbs in a window-sill her garden. I have seen windowsill herb gardens that have half a dozen popular herbs in them. Have FUN!

___________________________________________________ Martin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. "I'll bet you're back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive," says the beaming boy to his father. "Nope," comes dad's reply, "I'm gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you've been doing to me all these years." ___________________________________________________ An out-of-towner in New York at the height of the tourist season decided to revisit an uptown restaurant he'd enjoyed on a previous trip to the city. Finally catching the eye of an overworked waiter, he said, "You know, it's been over five years since I first came in here." "You'll have to wait your turn, sir," replied the harried waiter. "I can only serve one table at a time." ___________________________________________________

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!
