Fun on the Web Nov 29, 2010 Plan Your Garden

Now is the time to start planning a garden for the spring. You have plenty of time to order catalogs to get those heirloom tomato seeds, sets, and starter plants. Besides what better way to warm up than to think about spring?

They suggest "In the North, try this trick we learned from one of our gardeners. Surround your cool weather vegetable beds with hay bales. Find some old windows at yard sales. Place the windows over the hay bales to create a roof for your garden. The hay will insulate your garden, and the windows let sun reach your soil and plants. Even with snow piled around your beds, your vegetables will stay warm enough to thrive all winter!"

and now we have the Top 50 Acoustic Guitarists of All Time List by Gibson but check out the readers list too (just scroll on down the page)


Questions and Thoughts to Ponder

1. Does a clean house indicate that there is a broken computer in it?

2. Why is it that no matter what color of bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

3. Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

4. Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

5. On electric toasters, why do they engrave the message "oneslice"? How many pieces of bread do they think people are really gonna try to stuff in that slot?

6. Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

7. Why is it that no plastic garbage bag will open from the end you first try?

8. How do those dead bugs get into those closed light fixtures?

9. Considering all the lint you get in your dryer, if you kept drying your clothes would they eventually just disappear?

10. When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart than apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right." when, it isn't all right?

11. Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

12. Is it true that the only difference between a yard sale and a trash pickup is how close to the road the stuff is placed?

13. In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

14. How come we never hear father-in-law jokes?

15. If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife told you to do it?

16. The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends, if they're okay, then it's you.

50 Best Inventions of 2010


As the coals from our barbecue burned down, our hosts passed out marshmallows and long roasting forks.

Just then, two fire trucks roared by, sirens blaring, lights flashing. They stopped at a house right down the block.

All twelve of us raced out of the back yard, down the street, where we found the owners of the blazing house standing by helplessly.

They glared at us with looks of disgust.

Suddenly, we realized why.........we were all still holding our roasting forks with marshmallows on them...

Funny of the Day
One day, Hercules, Snow White and the Quazzimodo (Hunchback of Notre Dame) were standing around talking. Hercules spoke up and said, "I bet I am the strongest man in the world."

Snow White then looked around and said, "Well I bet that I am the most beautiful person in the world."

Then Quazzimodo looks around and quietly said, "I suppose that I am the ugliest man in the world."

An old man who had been listening in on there conversation said, "There is a psychic on top of that hill up there, why don't you each go in there and ask her yourself?"

The three friends agreed and they hiked to the top of the hill. Hercules went in first and came out a few minutes later and said, "I was right, I am the strongest man in the world."

Snow White went in next. She came out a few minutes later and said, "I was also right, I am the most beautiful person in the world."

Finally it was Quazzimodo's turn. He went in and after a few minutes he came out scratching his head. He looks up at his friends and said:

"Who is Dennis Rodman?"

Fun on the Web Nov 1, '10 GeoTags and Staying Safe

As reported on TMJ4 this am, many SmartPhones are equipped with GeoTag functions which may or may not be activated in your phone.

Many people aren't aware of this function, and don't know that if the GeoTag is "ON" -- taking photos with a SmartPhone and posting them online will also attach the exact GPS location of the photo taken.

The website http://icanstalku.com/how.php was started by a guy who realized that as he was posting photos of his child online, he was ALSO posting his home location.

So -- anyway --- just something to be aware of. If you have a SmartPhone and don't know whether your GeoTag is on or off --- it's something you might want to find out more about (and you might want to mention it to your friends/relatives).
