Fun on the Web March 21 '10 Progress

Well the rummage is over and now to deal with the wreckage. LOL I'm exhausted. Still in mid-reorganization, I got three more dresser drawers emptied and two refilled this morning,

Now I'm catching up on my own wash which was neglected as I did box after box of clothes for the rummage. All total, I got rid of 9 good size boxes of women's clothes plus a huge laundry basket full of little kids stuff and one box of miscellaneous kitchen items.

Fun on the Web March 18 '10 Sad but True

A Congressman was seated next to a little girl on the airplane leaving from DALLAS when the he turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.'

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the total stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?'

'Oh, I don't know,' said the congressman. 'How about global warming or universal health care', and he smiles smugly.

'OK,' she said. 'Those could be interesting topics. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?'

The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, 'Hmmm, I have no idea.'

To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming or universal health care when you don't know shit?'

Happy St Patrick's Day! May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead. (Irish toast)

I'll be having corned beef and cabbage but no green beer here thanks!

“You wanna know what’s for dinner? Two choices: take it or leave it.”

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
~~ George Orwell

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
~~ Carl Sagan
