What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do. --- John Ruskin (1819 - 1900) "You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do." --- Olin Miller I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. --- Confucius ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions. The new priest hears a couple confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions. The old priest suggests, "Cross you arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand." The new priest tries this. The old priest suggests, "Try saying things like, "I see, yes, go on, and I understand. How did you feel about that?'" The new priest says those things, trying them out. The old priest says, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than slapping your knee and saying 'No shit!

She switched it on, hoping a caller would identify the owner. It rang, and she answered it, but there was no response. When it rang a second time, another female employee answered, and the same thing happened. Moments later, a supervisor came by and picked up the ringing phone. "This is Bob. May I help you?" "Bob," the bewildered woman caller finally spoke.

Deputies responded to Bethesda Hospital East on Tuesday regarding an infant who had ingested drugs. The child's mother said that she and 33-year-old Christopher Hartley were both drug addicts and were both in recovery for several years. She says approximately 6 months ago Hartley relapsed and has been using various drugs. On Tuesday, Hartley informed the mother that the child found his Xanax and heroin pills and ingested them. Hartley made an attempt to get the child to vomit the pills back up. The child's mother says he was lethargic and his breathing was slowed when she called 911. Hartley told deputies that he had heroin pills and a half of a Xanax pill wrapped inside tissue paper. He saw the child eating the tissue paper and found pills inside the child's mouth. Hartley says he put his fingers inside the child's mouth and removed 4 heroin pills. The child's condition is unknown. Hartley's relationship to the child is redacted from the arrest report.
From: Anna Re: Libre or Open Office? Dear DearWebby, What is better, Office Libre or Open Office? Anna Dear Anna The only difference I can find is that with Open Office you can install just one component, for example Calc, with no need to install all the others. With Libre you get the works, and can delete not needed parts later. If you are installing on a small camera chip, get Open Office. If you have plenty of room, install Libre Office. Have FUN!

A college student in a philosophy class was taking his first examination. On the paper there was a single line which simply said: "Is this a question?" - Discuss. After a short time he wrote: "If that is a question, then this is an answer." The student received an "A" on the exam. ------------- My philosophy professors did not have any sense of humor, aside from letting me ad-lib and fake any and all answers.

Little Johnny's dad was a farmer in a poor district of the country. One day his Uncle Abner came to visit. Since there were limited accommodations, he was required to sleep with his young nephew, Little Johnny. When Uncle Abner came into the bedroom, he saw Little Johnny kneeling at the side of the bed with his head bowed. Thinking this was the child's religious upbringing, he decided to present a good example and kneeled at the other side of the bed with his head bowed. Little Johnny looked up and said, "Whatcha doin'?" "Why... The same thing you're doing," replied Uncle Abner. "Ma's gonna be mad," said Little Johnny. "Why will she be mad?" asked Uncle Abner. "Because the bed pan's on this side!" responded Little Johnny. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Preventing Soap Scum If you use liquid soap in your bath and shower instead of bar soap, you will not have as much soap scum.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Doc for this story: At a veterans' meeting in Washington, D.C., a man approached me and asked, "Do you recognize me?" "Sure," I answered unconvincingly. "What did I do in the Army?" he challenged. With surprising presence of mind, I replied, "You did absolutely nothing." Astonished, he said, "You do remember me!" ___________________________________________________ On wall in the men's room: "My wife follows me everywhere."

A Sunday-school teacher returning to work one day heard this little boy and girl quarreling with each other. It looked as if they might come to blows. "Children, why are you fighting so?" The little boy answered with an airy smile, "Why, teacher, we aren't quarreling really; we're just playing mother and father." ___________________________________________________
