4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD
1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're Down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.

Here's a joke in honour of the Czech Republic National Day
A woman arrived at the Gates
of Heaven. While she was waiting for Saint Peter to greet her, she
peeked through the gates and saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting
all around were her parents and all the other people she had loved and
who had died before her. They saw her and began calling greetings to
her "Hello, How are you? We've been waiting for you! Good to see
you!" When Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him,
"This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?" "You
have to spell a word," Saint Peter told her. "Which
word?" the woman asked. "Love."
The woman correctly spelled "Love" and Saint Peter welcomed her into Heaven. About a year later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day. While the woman was guarding the Gates of Heaven, unexpectedly her husband arrived. "I'm surprised to see you," the woman said. "How have you been?"
"Oh, I've been doing pretty well since you died," her husband told her. "I married the young nurse who took care of you while you were ill. And then I won the multi-state lottery, sold the little house you and I lived in and bought a much bigger one. We were both on vacation in Cancun and I went water skiing today. I fell and hit my head and well, here I am … what a bummer … how do I get in?"
"You have to spell a word," his wife told him. "Which word?" her husband asked. "Czechoslovakia."
Moral of the story: Never make a woman angry ... there'll be Hell to pay later.

AAADD, Anyone relates to this?
Recently I was diagnosed with AAADD - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
This is how it manifests:
I decided to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash can under the table, and notice that the trash can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the trash first. But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.
I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go to my desk where I find a can of Coke that I had been drinking. I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, we will be looking for the remote, but nobody will remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.
I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.
At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find my glasses, and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.

vs Bad Breath
A young couple decided to wed. As the big day approached, they grew apprehensive. Each had a problem they had never before shared with anyone, not even each other.
The groom-to-be, overcoming his fear, decided to ask his father for advice. "Father," he said, "I am deeply concerned about the success of my marriage."
His father replied, "Don't you love this girl?"
"Oh yes, very much," he said, "but you see, I have very smelly feet and I'm afraid that my fiancee will be put off by them."
"No problem," said dad, "all you have to do is wash your feet as often as possible and always wear socks, even to bed." Well, to him this seemed a workable solution.
The bride-to-be, overcoming her fear, decided to take her problem up with her mom. "Mom," she said, "When I wake up in the morning, my breath is truly awful."
"Honey," her mother consoled, "everyone has bad breath in the morning."
"No, you don't understand. My morning breath is so bad, I'm afraid that my fiancee will
not want to sleep in the same room with me."
Her mother said simply, "Try this. In the morning, get straight out of bed and head for the kitchen to make breakfast. While the family is busy eating, move on to the bathroom and brush your teeth. The key is, not to say a word until you've brushed your teeth."
"I shouldn't say good morning or anything?" the daughter asked.
"Not a word," her mother affirmed.
"Well, it's certainly worth a try," she thought.
The loving couple were finally married. Not forgetting the advice each had received, he with his perpetual socks and she with her morning silence, they managed quite well.
That is, until about six months later.
Shortly before dawn one morning, the husband wakes with a start to find that one of his socks had come off. Fearful of the consequences, he frantically searches the bed.
This, of course, wakes his bride and without thinking, she asks, "What on earth are you doing?"
"Oh, my God" he replies, "you've swallowed my sock!"

his blonde wife...
Norman and his blonde wife live in Coeur d' Alene. One winter morning
while listening to the KXLY radio, they hear the announcer say, "We are
going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the
even numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through."
Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.
A week later while they are eating breakfast, the radio announcer says,
"We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on
the odd numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through."
Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.
The next week they are having breakfast again, when the radio announcer
says "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must
park..........." then the electric power goes out. Norman's wife is very
upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do.
Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplow can get through?"
With the love and understanding in his voice that all of us men who are
married to Blondes exhibit, Norman says,
"Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?"

Saturday Oct 18 2003
A businessman entered a tavern, sat down at the bar, and ordered a double
scotch on the rocks. After he finished the drink, he peeked inside his
shirt pocket, then he ordered another double scotch.
After he finished that one, he again peeked inside his shirt pocket and ordered another double scotch.
Finally, the bartender said, "Look, buddy, I'll bring you drinks all night long. But you gotta tell me why you look inside your shirt pocket before you order another,"
The customer replied, "I'm looking at a photo of my wife. When she starts to look good, then I know it's time to go home,"
A doctor examined a woman, took the husband aside, and said, "I don't like the looks of your wife at all," "Me neither doc," said the husband. "But she's a great cook and really good
with the kids."
An old man goes to the Wizard to ask him if he can remove a curse he has been living with for the last 40 years. The Wizard says, "Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you."

THREE CANADIAN PRAIRIE MICE
Three mice, one from Manitoba, one
from Alberta and one Saskatchewan are
sitting at a bar after the funeral of a Ontario mouse killed by an eighty year old lady with a broom, trying to impress each other about how tough they are. The Manitoba mouse throws down a shot of bourbon, slams the empty glass onto the bar, turns to the Alberta mouse and says, "When I see a mousetrap, I lie on my back and set it off with my foot. When the bar
comes down, I catch it in my teeth, bench press it twenty times to work up an appetite, and then make off with the cheese." The Alberta mouse orders up two shots of tequila, drinks them down one after the other, slams both glasses onto the bar, turns to the Manitoba mouse and replies, "Oh yeah?
When I see rat poison, I collect as much as I can, take it home, grind it up to a powder, and add it to my coffee each morning so I can get a good buzz going for the rest of the day." The Manitoba and Alberta mouse then turn to the Saskatchewan mouse. The Saskatchewan mouse finishes the beer he has in front of him, lets out a long sigh and says to the two, "I don't have time for this bullsh*t. "Gotta go home and have sex with the cat."

women complement each other by the unique traits we were each given:
Women have strengths that amaze men. They carry children, they carry
hardships, they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love, and joy. They
smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when
they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
wait by the phone for a "safe at home call" from a friend after a snowy
drive home. They are childcare workers, executives, attorneys, stay-at-home
moms, bikers, babes, & your neighbors. They wear suits, jeans, and they
wear uniforms. They fight for what they believe in and they stand up against
injustice. They walk and talk the extra mile to get their children in the
right schools and to get their family the right health care.
go to the doctor with a frightened friend. Women are honest, loyal and
forgiving. They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power. But they still
know how to use their softer side to make a point. Women want to be the best
for their family & their friends and themselves.
hearts break when a friend dies. They have sorrow at the loss of a
family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
heart of a woman is what makes the world spin! Women do more than just
give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals. They
give moral support to their family and friends and all they want back is a
hug, a smile, and for you to do the same to people you come in contact with.
Men: Men are good at lifting heavy sh*t and killing bugs.----------------------------
Have you noticed anything fishy
about the inspection teams in Iraq? They're all men!
How does anyone expect men to find Saddam's stash? We all know that men have a blind spot when it comes to finding things. For crying' out loud! Men can't find the dirty clothes
hamper. Men can't find the jar of jelly until it falls out of the cupboard and splatters on the floor.... and these are the people we have sent into Iraq to search for hidden weapons of mass destruction?
I keep wondering why groups of mothers weren't sent in. Mothers can sniff out secrets quicker than a drug dog can find a gram of dope. Mothers can find gin bottles that dads have stashed in the attic beneath the rafters. They can sniff out a diary two rooms and one floor away. They can tell when the lid of a cookie jar has been disturbed and notice when a
quarter inch slice has been shaved off a chocolate cake. A mother can smell alcohol on your breath before you get your key in the front door and can smell cigarette smoke from a block away. By examining laundry, a mother knows more about their kids than Sherlock Holmes. And if a mother wants an answer to question, she can read an offender's eyes quicker than a homicide detective.
So... considering the value a mother could bring to an inspection team, why are we sending a bunch of old men who will rely on electronic equipment to scout out hidden threats? My mother would walk in with a wooden soup spoon in one hand, grab Saddam by the ear, give it a good twist and snap, "Young man, do you have any weapons of mass destruction?" And God help him if he tried to lie to her. She'd march him down the street to some secret bunker and shove his nose into a nuclear bomb and say, "Uh, huh, and what do you call this, mister?"
Whap! Thump! Whap! Whap! Whap! And she'd lay some stripes across his bare bottom with that soup spoon, then march him home in front of the whole of Baghdad. He'd not only come clean and apologize for lying about it, he'd cut every lawn in Baghdad for free for the whole damn summer. Inspectors my ass... You want the job done? Call my mother.

The next time you have a
problem with customer service or any other business and decide to
voice your complaint in a written piece of correspondence, I submit
this example of a "Flame letter" from a couple in the UK for
The British have computer problems, too ...----------------------------
What follows is a superb example of British humor in a letter that was
truly written and sent. The piece suggests two things:
1) Americans and Canadians are not the only ones who get poor service
from their ISP, cable and/or alarm companies. (NTL is a cable
operator in Britain.)
2) The Brits appear to get a better education than most, enabling
them to write some fine letters of complaint.
I have been an NTL customer since 9th July 2001, when I signed up for
your four-in-one deal for cable TV, cable modem, telephone, and alarm
During this three-month period I have encountered inadequacy of
service which I had not previously considered possible, as well as
ignorance and stupidity of monolithic proportions. Please allow me to
provide specific details, so that you can either pursue your
professional prerogative, and seek to rectify these difficulties --
or more likely (I suspect) so that you can have some entertaining
reading material as you while away the working day smoking B&H and
drinking vendor-coffee on the bog in your office.
My initial installation was cancelled without warning, resulting in
my spending an entire Saturday sitting on my fat arse waiting for
your technician to arrive. When he did not arrive, I spent a further
57 minutes listening to your infuriating hold music, and the even
more annoying Scottish robot woman telling me to look at your helpful
website. HOW? I alleviated the boredom by playing with my testicles
for a few minutes -- an activity at which you are no-doubt both
familiar and highly adept.
The rescheduled installation then took place some two weeks later,
although the technician did forget to bring a number of vital
tools-such as a drill-bit, and his cerebrum.
Two weeks later, my cable modem had still not arrived. After 15
telephone calls over four weeks my modem arrived, six weeks after I
had requested it, and begun to pay for it.
I estimate your internet server's downtime is roughly 35% -- the
hours between about 6 pm and midnight, Monday through Friday, and
most of the weekend.
I am still waiting for my telephone connection.
I have made nine calls on my mobile to your no-help line, and have
been unhelpfully transferred to a variety of disinterested
individuals who are, it seems, also highly skilled bollock jugglers.
I have been informed that a telephone line is available (and someone
will call me back); that I will be transferred to someone who knows
whether or not a telephone line is available (and then been cut off);
that I will be transferred to someone (and then been redirected to an
answering machine informing me that your office is closed); that I
will be transferred to someone and then been redirected to the
irritating Scottish robot woman. And several other variations on this
Doubtless you are no longer reading this letter, as you have at least
a thousand other dissatisfied customers to ignore, and also another
one of those crucially important testicle moments to attend to.
Frankly I don't care. It's far more satisfying as a customer to voice
my frustrations in print than to shout them at your unending hold
music. Forgive me, therefore, if I continue.
I thought British Telecom was shit; that they had attained the holy
piss-pot of god-awful customer relations; and that no one, anywhere,
ever, could be more disinterested, less helpful or more obstructive
to delivering service to their customers. That's why I chose NTL, and
because, well, there isn't anyone else is there? How surprised I
therefore was, when I discovered to my considerable dissatisfaction
and disappointment what a useless shower of bastards you truly are.
You are sputum-filled pieces of distended rectum incompetents of the
highest order. BT -- wankers though they are -- shine like brilliant
beacons of success in the filthy mire of your seemingly limitless
Suffice to say that I have now given up on my futile and foolhardy
quest to receive any kind of service from you. I suggest that you
cease any potential future attempts to extort payment from me for the
services which you have so pointedly and catastrophically failed to
deliver. Any such activity will be greeted initially with hilarity

A father and son went hunting together for the first time.
father said, "Stay here and be very QUIET. I'll be across the field."
A few minutes later, the father heard a bloodcurdling scream
and ran back to his son. "What's wrong?" the father asked. "I told you to
be quiet." The son answered, "Look, I was quiet when the snake slithered
across my feet. I was quiet when the bear breathed down my neck. I didn't
move a muscle when the skunk climbed over my shoulder. I closed my eyes
and held my breath when the wasp stung me. I didn't cough when I swallowed
the gnat. I didn't cuss or scratch when the poison oak started itching. But
when the two chipmunks crawled up my pant legs and said, 'Should we eat them
here or take them with us?' Well, I guess I just panicked."

NEW E-MAIL SCAM TARGETS
WebPosted Wed Sep 24 16:01:41 2003
TORONTO--The RCMP has warned Internet users about a new scam that's coming out of last month's huge blackout in southern Ontario and the northeastern United States.
Some people are getting e-mail messages claiming to be from banks and other financial institutions.
CONSUMER TIPS: Stopping Junk E-mail
The e-mails say the blackout wiped out computer records, and ask the recipient to send information about their bank accounts and personal identification numbers.
The Canadian Bankers Association has joined the Mounties in warning that people should be very careful about their banking information, especially their PINs.

first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her
The teacher asked, "Harry, what's your problem?"
Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!"
Ms. Brooks had had enough.. She took Harry to the principal's office.
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was.
The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.
Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"
Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"
And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know. The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade."
Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions."
The principal and Harry both agreed.
Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?"
Harry, after a moment: "Legs."
Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"
The principal wondered, why would she ask such a question!
Harry replied: "Pockets."
Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?"
Ms. Brooks: What's starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?
The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.
Ms. Brooks: What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?
The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer.
Harry: Bubble gum
Ms. Brooks: What does a man do standing up, a woman do sitting down and a dog do on three legs?"
Harry: "Shake hands."
The principal was trembling.
Ms. Brooks: What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?
The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong."

Passengers on a small
commuter plane are waiting for the flight to
leave. They're getting a little impatient, but the airport staff has
assured them that the pilots will be there soon, and the flight
can take off immediately after that. The entrance opens and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilot uniforms. Both are wearing dark glasses. One is using a seeing-eye dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle with a cane. Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin.
The men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up.
The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming. The plane moves faster and faster down the runway and people at the windows realize that they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory.
it begins to look as thought the plane will never take off and will
plow into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin. But at that
moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers
relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon they have all retreated into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
Up in the cockpit, the copilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late, and we're all gonna die."

Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him. Murphy had never been seen in church in his life.
After Mass, the priest caught Murphy and said, "Murphy, I am so glad you decided to come to Mass, what made you come?"
Murphy said, "I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced my hat and I really, really love that hat . I know that McGlynn had one just like mine and I knew that McGlynn came to church every Sunday. I also knew that McGlynn had to take off his hat during Mass and I figured he would leave it in the back of church. So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn's hat."
The priest said, "Well, Murphy,! I notice that you didn't steal McGlynn's hat. What changed your mind?"
Murphy said, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 commandments, I decided that I didn't need to steal McGlynn's hat."
The priest gave Murphy a big smile and said, "After I talked about Thou Shalt Not Steal' you decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in Hell, right?"
Murphy shook his head and said, "No, Father, after you talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' I remembered where I left my hat."
