If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside.
Robert X. Cringely, InfoWorld magazine

5. Law of the Alibi - If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.

6. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).

13. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only two people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

19.. Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better. Don't make an appointment and you'll stay sick

Airport Security Suggestion....

An engineer (ex-NASA project director) has what I think is
the near perfect solution for airport security!

*Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body
scanners at the airports. Have a booth that you can step into
that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device
you may have on you.*

*It would be a win-win for everyone, and there would be none of this
talk about racial profiling and this method would eliminate a long
and expensive trial. Justice would be quick and swift..*

*Case Closed!*

Peter Marshall: Which of your five senses tends to diminish as you get older?
Charley Weaver: My sense of decency.

Peter Marshall: Charley, you've just decided to grow strawberries. Are you going to get any during your first year?

Charley Weaver: Yes, but he's forgotten the secret word.

Charley Weaver: 87 years old? I'd say the quickie!

Peter Marshall: Charley, true or false: every time you sneeze, your heart stops.
Charley Weaver: Out to the home, there's a few people that, whenever they sneeze, their hearts stop!

Peter Marshall: According to Billy Graham, can you get anything you've always wanted in Heaven, if you didn't get it on Earth?
Charley Weaver: Yes, but there's an extra charge for the whitewalls.

Peter Marshall: Is there a weight limit for bags on airline flights in this country?
Charley Weaver: If she can fit under the seat, she can fly.

Peter Marshall: According to Today's Health, what do most dentists say you should do with your dentures before going to bed?
Charley Weaver: Out to the home, we throw them all into the center of the room and have a swap party...

Peter Marshall: According to Ann Landers, is their anything wrong with getting into the habit of kissing a lot of people?
Charley Weaver: It got me out of the army!

Peter Marshall: Charley, what do you call a pig that weighs more than 150 pounds?
Charley Weaver: A divorcee.

Peter Marshall: Charles, how many balls would you expect to find on a billiard table?
Charley Weaver: How many guys are playing? (Weaver and audience laughing) Now you're doing it, that's more like it.

Peter Marshall: What famous story begins with the discovery of magic beans?
Charley Weaver: Inherit the Wind.

Peter Marshall: True or false -- when the swallows return to Capistrano, they are probably coming from Argentina.
Charley Weaver: That's true, and not only did they ruin my car, they blew up my trailer!

Peter Marshall: Does Pat Nixon think her husband is fun?
Charley Weaver: Yes, she says he's full of it.

Peter Marshall: Do rosey cheeks always mean good health?
Charley Weaver: Not if you're sitting on a radiator!

Peter Marshall: In a recent TV Guide interview, Paul Lynde said that he has been cursed with something all his life. What?
Charley Weaver: Four letter words! (correct answer: shyness)

Peter Marshall: Was there anything going on between Christopher Columbus and Queen Isabella?
Charley Weaver: Yes, and Columbus later found out that the world was round and she was flat!

Peter Marshall: Shakespeare wrote 154 of them. What are they?
Charley Weaver: Checks to Rose Marie for services rendered.

Peter Marshall: What makes water hard?
Charley Weaver: Winter.

Peter Marshall: You are a senior citizen and during the night while you are asleep, your heart beats 50 times per minute. Is there something wrong with you?
Charley Weaver: Well, let's put it this way. Could you ask me Friday's questions today?

Peter Marshall: True or false -- rumors circulate in business offices more than any place else.
Charley Weaver: That's false, Peter, and we're certainly going to miss you around here!

Peter Marshall: True or false -- drinking can make you hard of hearing.
Charley Weaver: What?

Peter Marshall: Is it possible for you to make a dog laugh?
Charley Weaver: Well, I tried to housebreak a dog once and he just laughed and laughed.

Good morning everyboomie. wave

My day off was a blur. It was so short I don't even dismember what I did. headscratch

I suppose I had fun. I think there was a little dog running circles around me. puppy

Maybe I was too dizzy to remember anything. crazy

Oh yeah. I know that I didn't find any points at the creek.

I think on my next vacation I'll go to the Little Big Horn and head hunt.

The points I find though are anywhere from 500 to 5000 years old, so I doubt I'll find any there. duh

Mom always talks about finding arrowheads around here when her and her siblings were kids, and they would just throw them at each other and forget about them. shocked

I asked her where they threw them and I go try and find them. She says, "Oh no. They wouldn't still be there after all this time."

I'm thinking wait a minute! They layed around out there for 500 years or more, but she thinks they got washed away since she threw them down 75 years ago? slapforehead

I think not.... shame

Now I have two more early early work days to get through before having a nutter day off.

That means getting up at 3:30 so I think I'd better get this tired old body to bed.

Have a happy day everyone.

Tomorrow AM I'll be leaving for Dallas for Thanksgiving and as for leaving my pets I'm perfectly miserable however I can't let my family know so will dump on g'boomers. O K. dumpted. Probably all family will be there and perhaps some in-laws. It's going to be catered with extras from whole foods and central market. The C Market thing wasn't supposed to be but Tim, the host went there to order by mistake as Jamie, hostess specified W Foods. So we have extra food. My oldest daughter, Elaine, is vegan so she'll be cooking.

I've left a millionjillion notes for the guy whose feeding my pets.

Thankx Nan and all for encouraging thoughts and words.

So no g'boomer posting for a few days -so all have a fine Thanksgiving and remember Tom Turkey.

Hey Joe, we'll be kinda close to your place. When a kid I had an arrowhead collection, must have been Niagara Frontier tribes -Tuskaraga(spelling)- but eventually I threw them back into the woods.

Anyway happy Tuesday all -byebye for awhile

Hi Guys wave. I'm on a computer that's here in the apartment complex I now live at. There are two computers here for anyone to use. My computer isn't hooked up yet. Needless to say, I'm exhausted from the move but I can take my time unpacking. I hope you all are having a good day.

I think I'll be spending my Thanksgiving with my Mom. At least that's what I plan on. My car will be ready today sometime. It's been in the shop for a few days.

So I'll be able to come down to the office area to stop in at the diner until my puter is hooked up. See you guys.

MIdgie hearts
Just do it.

Terrific Tuesday ya'll puppy

Soot and I are running around doing all the necessary stuff before we leave tomorrow. Soot has a rather extensive errand list and I'm cleaning, cooking, charging electronics, laundrying, planning, and packing.

We had a great example of the goodness of people today. Son and I went online yesterday and purchased a family ticket to the zoo plus train rides. When son showed the printout to the ticket lady this morning (takes a month to get the actual pass) she said, "Whoa honey, you guys paid too much." So son called me and gave me her name and number. I called her back and it turned out that we bought a train ride pass for each person on the family pass, which we didn't need to do. 1 train ride pass was all we needed since we had the family pass. So hats off and a big thumbsup to our local zoo employees.

It's Iron Bowl time around here. Auburn and Al will be facing off on Sat...we will be on the road that day. Sadly, there is little reason to watch as Auburn's team is horrendously terrible this year.

Joe, may many points be in your future.

Ana, have fun!

Haroula wave

Cailyn, thanks for the coffee. I need tons of it today.

Gail,I hope something fun turns up.

Venus, wave

Manx, hope you get it all done. Do try to take 5 minutes to smell the roses (or as in my case, pet the dogs).

Woohoo Darlene, happy skooshing.

My10, so glad you are still ahead of them.

Yankee, I feel your pain. We are leaving tomorrow morning also. Doggies will be here with son. I know the dogs will be fine, but I'm quite sure son will be uber stressed. I always call the vet to let them know the wee ones are being watched by someone else when I leave. I put a cc on file along with instructions to take care of my babies and I'll worry about cost when I get back. Of course, we've never needed that, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Have fun! How long is the drive?

Midgy, so glad you can get on. I think your new digs are going to be soooooo much better than where you were before. puppy

Okay, off to get to work. turkey
