Dear Abby:
My husband is a lying cheat. He tells me he loves me, but he has cheated our entire marriage. He is a good provider and has many friends and supporters. They know he is a lying cheat, but they just avoid the issue. He is a hard worker but many of his co-workers are leery of him. Every time he gets caught, he denies it all. Then he admits that he was wrong and begs me to forgive him. This has been going on for so long, everyone in town knows he is a cheat. I don't know what to do.

Signed, Frustrated

Dear Frustrated:
You should dump him. Now that you are finally a New York Senator, you don't need him anymore.

A man in his back yard is trying to fly a kite. He throws the kite up in the air, the wind catches it for a few seconds then it comes crashing back down. He tries this a few more times all the while his wife is watching from the kitchen window, muttering to herself how men need to be told how to do everything.
She opens the window and yells to her husband, "You need more tail."
The man turns with a confused look on his face and says, "Make up your mind, last night you told me to go fly a kite."

Fat Theology

And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow vegetable of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives. And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent double-cheeseburger. And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?"
And Man said, "Super size them." And Man gained pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman might keep her figure that man found so fair. [/color
And Satan brought forth chocolate. And woman gained pounds.

And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."
And Satan brought forth ice cream. And woman gained pounds.

And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy vegetables and olive oil with which to cook them."
And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter.

And Man gained pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the roof.

And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose those extra pounds.
And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.
And Man gained pounds.

And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil."

And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition.
And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip also. And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips swaddled in cholesterol.
And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

And Man went into cardiac arrest.
And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.
And Satan created HMOs.

Question: If God waited until next to the final paragraph to bring forth potatoes, which Satan promptly corrupted into potato chips (crisps) with sour cream dip, then When Satan asked "Do you want fries with that [99-cent MacDonalds double cheeseburger]?" what were the fries made from?  Just asking.  Grin

Origin of phrases
1. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase "goodnight, sleep tight".

Origin of phrases
2. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the! wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month or what we know today as the honeymoon.

Origin of phrases
3. In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's"

4. Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice.

After getting nailed by a Daisy Cutter, Osama Bin Laden made his way to the pearly gates.

There, he is greeted by George Washington. "How dare you attack the nation I helped conceive!" yells Mr. Washington, slapping Osama in the face.


Patrick Henry comes up from behind. "You wanted to end the Americans' liberty, so they gave you death!" Henry punches Osama on the nose.

James Madison comes up next, and says "This is why I allowed the Federal government to provide for the common defense!" He drops a large weight on Osama's knee.

Monroe, and 65 other people who have the same love for liberty and America take their turns. As he writhes on the ground, Thomas Jefferson picks him up to hurl him back toward the gate where he is to be judged.

As Osama awaits his journey to his final very hot destination, he screams "This is not what I was promised!"

An angel replies "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you, Dumb Ass. What did you think I said?"

Re question 8. Could you tell me whereabouts in the Pacific the Canary Islands are? I knew that the Atlantic ones were named after dogs, and I have found a Google reference that the Pacific ones were named after canaries (!) but nowhere have I found where they are. Not even Google Earth has helped me. I'd prefer not to have to dig out my gazetteers and atlases if it's easy to get an answer by just asking.

I just copied the block of questions which a guy in America sent me and didn't stop to check it out properly. You are right to question it because there are no Canary Islands in the Pacific. The Spanish "Islands of Dogs" are in the North Atlantic Ocean.

WHAT DOES "WD-40" STAND FOR?
WD-40 literally stands for "Water Displacement, 40th attempt". That's the name straight out of the lab book used by the chemist who developed WD-40 back in 1953. The chemist, Norm Larsen, was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent corrosion--a task which is done by displacing water. Norm's persistence paid off when he perfected the formula on his 40th try.

WHY IS THE PITCHER'S MOUND 60 FEET SIX INCHES FROM THE HOME PLATE?
Until 1893, the pitcher's mound was 50 feet from home plate. Pitchers were having a relatively easy time tossing fast balls and strikes, and the game was becoming a bore. Thus, officials decided to move the mound back 10 feet. A diagram showing a distance of 60' 0" was presented to a surveyor, who was supposed to map out new fields. Unfortunately, the surveyor misread the diagram as showing 60' 6", and designed the new field accordingly. The blueprints and several new mounds were finished before the error was noticed, so the measurement remained.

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican." "I am," replied the man. "How did you know?" "Well," answered the balloonist, "Everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."
The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."
"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"
"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect ME to solve your problem. You're in EXACTLY the same position you were in before we met, but somehow now, it's MY fault!"

In a recent interview, General Norman Schwartzkopf was asked if he didn't think there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harboured and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America.


His answer: "I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the meeting."

Do you remember?
Stroll with me.... close your eyes.... and go back.... before the Internet.... before semiautomatics and crack.... before SEGA or Super Nintendo.... way back!

I'm talking about sitting on the curb, sitting on the stoop.... about hide-and-go-seek; Simon says and red-light-green-light. Lunch boxes with a thermos.... chocolate milk, going home for lunch, penny candy from the store, hopscotch, butterscotch, skates with keys, jacks and Cracker Jacks, hula hoops and sunflower seeds, wax lips and mustaches, Mary Janes, saddle shoes and Coke bottles with the names of cities on the bottom.
Remember when it took five minutes for the TV to warm up. When nearly everyone's mom was at home when kids got home from school. When nobody owned a purebred dog. When a quarter was a decent allowance. When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny. When your mom wore nylons that came in two pieces. When all of your male teachers wore neckties and female teachers had their hair done everyday and wore high heels.


Remember more tomorrow…

I remember.  The TV (telly to our European contingent) took only 20-30 seconds.  I timed it with my older brother's stopwatch.  It only seemed like five minutes.

Do you remember?

Running through the sprinkler, circle pins, bobby pins, Mickey Mouse Club, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Kukla, Fran and Ollie, Spin and Marty.... all in black and white.
When around the corner seemed far away and going downtown seemed like going somewhere. Climbing trees, making forts, backyard shows, lemonade stands, cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, staring at clouds, jumping on the bed, pillow fights, ribbon candy, angel hair on the Christmas tree, Jackie Gleason, white gloves, walking to the movie theater, running till you were out of breath, laughing so hard that your stomach hurt. Not stepping on a crack or you'd break your mother's back.... paper-chains at Christmas, silhouettes of Lincoln and Washington.... the smells of school, of paste and Evening in Paris.

Remember more tomorrow…

Do you remember?

What about the girl who dotted her "i's" with hearts? The Stroll, popcorn balls and sock hops?
Remember when there were two types of sneakers for girls and boys (Keds and PF Flyers) and the only time you wore them at school was for "gym." And the girls had those ugly gym uniforms. When you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking - all for free -- every time! And, you didn't pay for air either and, you got trading stamps to boot! When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box. When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents. When the worst thing you could do at school was flunk a test or chew gum. And the prom was in the auditorium and you danced to a real orchestra. When they threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed -- and did!

Do you remember?

When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home. Basically, we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was so much greater than the threat.
Remember when a '57 Chevy was everyone's dream car -- used to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races? When people went "steady" and girls wore a class ring with an inch of wrapped Band-Aids, dental floss or yarn coated with pastel-frost nail polish so it would fit their finger.
When no one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the car and house doors were never locked! Remember lying on your back on the grass with your friends and saying things like "That cloud looks like a..... ." And playing baseball with no adults needed to enforce the rules of the game.

Remember more tomorrow…

Do you remember?

When stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals, because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger.

And, with all our progress; don't you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace..... and share it with the children of today? So send this on to someone who can still remember Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, Laurel and Hardy, Howdy Doody and The Peanut Gallery, The Lone Ranger, The Shadow Knows, Nellie Belle, Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk..... as well as the sound of a push mower on Saturday morning, and summers filled with bike rides, baseball games, bowling, visits to the pool.... and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar from the palm of your hand and my favorite white lipstick, big hair do's and sock hops.


There, didn't that feel good? Just to lean back and say: "Yeah, I remember..."

Love your enemies; it will make them crazy.

Doing so will also make them wonder what you're up to.  Evil

We have some long-lived people today.  Ian, the third of his line, is one of them.  Despite his advanced age, he normally has enjoyed remarkably good health so far, but he had to check into the hospital recently because he had developed a serious staph infection.  The local newspaper considered this event to be unusual to put it on the front page.

The title: "Ian III Ill at 111"

Butch the Rooster

Sarah was in the fertilized egg business.    She had several hundred young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.
 
She kept records and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
 
This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
 
Sarah's favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To Sarah's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.    He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job, and walk on to the next one.

Sarah was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in a Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Peace Prize" they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well. 

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making.  Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention? 

Vote carefully in the election on the 8th June. You can't always hear the bells.

There was this couple who were running late preparing for the big party, and it just so happened that the husband had on a pair of trousers that had a buttoned fly, one button of which had come off and needed sewing.
The wife simply did not have the time to tend to it so she suggested he run across the street to have her lady friend take care of the matter.  And so he did.
A little bit later he came back with the button sewn on all right, but he was terribly beaten up.
"Good grief!  What in the world happened to you!  You just went over there for the button to be sewed on, and now look at you!"
"Well, when I told her what I wanted done she said to take a seat and that it would just take her a second.  So I sat down and she began sewing on the button.  Everything was just going along just fine until she bent over to bite off the thread and her husband came in the door."
