My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing will begin in five minutes.

Los Alamos Secured
The Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico, a supposedly high-security nuclear weapons facility, has had a series of infamous screw-ups in where top secret information has been misplaced or stolen.

Top attempts to tighten security at the Los Alamos lab include...

18. Ask Napster to kindly remove all Los Alamos nuclear secrets from the download share list.

17. All researchers are given amnesia-producing mallet blow each night, memory-restoring mallet blow the next morning.

16. All documents will now be encrypted in the new, unbreakable "Ig-pay Atin-lay" format.

15. Hard drives now equipped with Lojack tracking systems.

14. "Accidental" radiation leak turns regular security guards into meaner, tougher mutant security guards.

13. Barkless Basenji guard dog replaced with out of work Taco Bell Chihuahua.

12. Cease giving out day passes over the radio to the "15th foreign national who calls right now!"

11. Janitors Boris and Mao swear that "Jake the Security Guard is a commie [blip]. Start there, comrade!"

10. Immediately suspend "you break it, you bought it" policy on hard drives.

9. Chinese take-out no longer a lunch option.

8. All communication in secured areas must now be done in Klingon. Added benefit: the scientists are thrilled!

7. a) "Accidentally" leave plans for latest weapon by the office water cooler. b) First country to utilize a $5 billion [blip] Bomb clearly the guilty party.

6. Cafeteria Happy Meals no longer include a free ZIP disk.

5. Visitors answering the guard's challenge with "Foe" now required to sign guest book before entry.

4. Security guards limited to one "WHAAZZZUUP!" walkie-talkie conversation per hour.

3. Finally allow Chief of Security Barney Fife to load his gun.

2. "Shave and a Haircut" knock replaced with more secure "My Sharona" knock.

1. From now on, all security guards must pass the new "Your Behind From a Hole in the Ground" test.

Love Tips By Kids
Some great tips on love and relationships by kids between the age of 5 and 10...


"Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me awife." (Tom, 5)


"On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 9)


"You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, cause she'll want to havevideos of the wedding." (Jim, 10)


"No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deoderantare so popular." (Jan, 9)


"Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life."
(Roger, 9)

"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." (Leo, 7)


"If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful." (Jeanne, 8)

"It isn't always just how you look. Look at me, I'm handsome like anything and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet." (Gary, 7)

"Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time." (Christine, 9)


"They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 8)


"I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on television." (Anita, 6)

"Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I have been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me." (Bobby, 8)

"I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough." (Regina, 10)


"One of you should know how to write a check. Because even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills." (Ava, 8)


"Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love." (Alonzo, 9)

"One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually work for me." (Bart, 9)


"The person is thinking, Yeah, I really do love him. But I hope he showers at least once a day." (michelle,9)


"Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work." (Tom, 7)

"Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash." (Randy,8)

Thanks for the jokes Joe and good luck with the hunt.

Good morning Joe, Anna, Manxman, SpaceQuestFan and Haroula!

I bought a car. Now I'm free of the hospital and pain and I have transportation.Things are great for me now. The first thing I did when I got my car was get a speeding ticket! taz However, I got let off with a slap on the wrist. Could have ticketed me for more (didn't have my new insurance card with me) so I'm going to look on it as a wakeup call to "Obey the Law". grin

I am a very happy person right now. I'm wishing my happiness on you and all Gameboomers!

Good morning Boomies wave

No connection yesterday so today, as soon as I saw the green light coming on again, I rushed to the PC and here I'am, tiping very fast before the light goes out again....

Sharon: I'am so happy for you bravo

Lotus: how is your Mum doing? Still praying for her. Is there also Aspirin Cardio to get in the States? My Mum is, after 3 strokes in the last few years, on them Aspirin cardios and is happy with them. MaG is right though: no cutting the fingers (or any place else)!

Nan and everybody suggesting to read or game, two days ago: I was indeed doing a bit of this and a bit of that (cleaning and reading I mean). No, I never read The Hobbit before, but I've read Lord of the Rings approx. 5x.... And I didn't see the film either. The book is hilarious (except the part with the big spiders.. eek...)

Happy day to you all. Enjoy.

Thumping Good Thursday ya'll puppy

Hubby and I and the doggies had a great outing at the park. There were a lot of folks there, more than I've seen yet. Saw 2 people that I haven't seen in years...both ladies and both without their normal makeup and took me a second to recognize them. One is my next door neighbor. rotfl I see her husband from time to time out back but seldom see her.

Son has the morning off so I'm trying to keep the monkeys quiet so he can sleep. His bedroom is at the back right where the neighbor's dogs like to bark, so we try not to add to the chaos.

I'll be off later to do some errands.

Woohooo Joe, I hope you get home early and finds lots of perfect points.

Manx wave

Ana, may the corner be fun and quick.

Space, yes it is. Are you off on Monday?

Haroula, have a great day.

SharonB, woooohoooo and grats happydance So glad things are going well for you.

Cailyn, thanks for the coffee. How are you?

Gimli, I think Hobbit was the first fantasy book I read. I want to live in Bilbo's house.

Gerry, anything fun on the docket today?

Venus wave Happy whooshing!

Connie, thanks for the bacon sandwiches. How is everyone?

Midgy, I hope you have some fun in your day.

Happy skooshing, Darlene wave

Back later

Joe glad you can leave work early today and have fun hunting!! Thanks for the laughs. WooHoo a day off tomorrow. think Does that mean it doesn't happen cause when it gets here it will be today. lol

Ana I hope the corner is being kind and the puzzles are moving right along for you.

I awoke this morning to something that hasn't happened in awhile........this bright orb shinning in my window. lol Took advantage of it too and me and Sassy took an extra long walk and saw about seven deer just laying there soaking in some rays too.

Space only one after today!!

Manxman have a lovely day!

WooHoo Evelyne the net was on! happydance Hope it stays for awhile!! Have a lovely day! Oh and yes they have cardio ASA here too. I take one whole asprin a day!! I remember making it in my organic chemistry lab class. lol

Haroula have a lovely day!

Cailyn thanks for coffee. Have a lovely day!

Gerry have a nice day!

venus oh happy you!!! An extra day!! May all go well and you know what to do.

Sharon congrats on the new set of wheels. Must have been a little excited to be driving instead of walking I see. lol Enjoy!!

Connie have a lovely day and thanks for the danish!!

Midge have fun with the errands and may work go well. Have a lovely day!

Darlene may work fly and all go smoothly!! Have a lovely day!

L4l It is hard to tell some folk when they aren't all made-up. I was made this way so who am I to try to improve His perfection. lol

Sounds like you had a lovely walk in the park though. Me and Sassy went to the woods area close by and I let her run loose for awhile as she loves that.

No plans so far for today!!

Re: Thursday's - 05/23/13 12:14 PM

Oh what a wonderful day. Last night a stupid Apartment guy parked his car directly in front of my gate where I needed to put my trash can for pick up today.

So I waited all evening and finally gave up and dragged it behind his car, hoping he wouldn't back into it. This morning his car was gone (nice) but then I noticed a small paper on the ground which came out of my trash.

Yup, after weeks of no transients digging in my trash and messing up everything by opening all the neat little plastic bags and my compactor bag, last night someone did it again. Tore open everything, dragged out yukky icky cat food cans covered with cat litter and poop and left the inside of my trash can a slimy, stinking mess.

I guess I'll have to go back to putting my cans out in the morning although getting up early and dressed isn't what I want. Now I have to wash my can after they empty it. Gonna FIND that guy and make HIM wash it (I wish).

Off to watch Star Trek at the theatre this morning. Will miss my Trial stuff on a crucial day, but I can't sit around forever waiting for something to happen.

I'm hoping they come back with a verdict while I'm gone so I can stop the insanity.

OH and for everyone who asked, NO fireworks since the fire department and police were over there! Crossing fingers, hoping they threatened and scared everyone they talked to and that the news gets around. Already have 3 of my neighbors committed to calling the minutes we hear any go off on the 4th. We will all call the non-emergency number en masse and hope they can rush over to catch the culprits and finally put an end to the constant bangs and fire danger.

Off to watch Trial and wait for friend to go see Star Trek. Wheeeeeee.

SharonB -Freedom yippee- take the speeding in stride, who cares anyway. How's your kitty, is she looking better -did she recognize you.

This post will be fast and furious because my big cat, Schemer Baby is helping. Helping(?)

Instead of playing Halo last evening, I watched Judge Judy on youtube. Entertainment plus. For 2 hours and perhaps more. Haven't seen her in years because I don't have TV. Due to cash flow restrictions it was either games or TV.

Boo-Hoo. Grasshoppers ate my pomagranet plants -both of which I planted from seed. Now it's going to be another whole year befor I'll get more seeds.

Happy Thursday all

My computer is acting up. I hate it when that happens.I'll have to have it checked soon.

Hello everybody. wave

I didn't get off as early as planned. At 12:00 I went over 40 hours and I planned to leave, but we were so busy, and it was mainly my department. rolleyes

I got out at 1:00. yay

This morning though we had a humongous storm dump 3" of rain in about two hours. woot

I came home and went down to the creek, and it is a raging river. happydance

It's up at least 4 or 5 feet.

WAA HOO! penguin

I won't be doing any hunting at the creek tomorrow though I'm afraid. smirk

It'll take a few days for the water to recede enough. razz

Gotta pizza cooking......and ready.

I'll be back.

Hi Everyone! Just a fast flyby. We have been planting more trees. Hubby says no more!! I would like to cover our acreage in them but he likes his expansive lawns...have to admit they do look nice too. Today we put in some river birches. They like to have their feet wet and should be happy in our climate. Off I go to finish laundry. Happy Gaming everyone!! wave

Re: Thursday's - 05/23/13 06:42 PM

Lotus, I'm with you...I love trees, the more the better.

Finally back from my errands. Took much longer than I thought but I did find something to wear to daughter's promotion next week. I will have to hem, but that's not a problem...I always have to hem.

Had a nice stroll through the grocery store. Now sitting and sipping before I go up to cook.

Son called to ask if the boys could come tonight and could I watch them tomorrow please. They are supposed to be here just in time for bed so as they once said in Star Trek, "They be no tribble at all." wave

Dinner was homemade minestrone soup and it was sooooo yummy. Then when I was cleaning up I stepped on something and thought I had a piece of glass in my foot. Hubby looked and looked but only saw a small cut.

Boys are here and not happy. First question. Can we play Wii? Answer...not now...time for bed. Second question. Can we watch t.v.? Answer. Not now, it's time for bed. Third question. Papa Soot, can we play Wii? rotfl

I know it's hard for them when they come here and dad is working. <sad>

So anyway, time for bed. Sweet dreams everyone sleep

Re: Thursday's - 05/24/13 12:06 AM

WooHoo Darlene!!! That is always nice! Any fun plans??

L4l I'm sure that has to be hard on the boys spending time here and time there all the time. My nieces boy has to do that. One week with mom and one week with dad. Abbi also. Who are they to listen too? Can't do this here but can do that there. Must be confusing. If they only truely knew how it was for the kids.

Ana hope that things are moving right along.

Sorta glad no bangs in the sky and hope it stays that way!! How was the movie???

Lotus trees are nice as long as you don't have to rake ALL the leaves. lol But then the shade is always welcome!! Plant away!!

Midge sleep well. May work be fun!

Joe sounds like you got plenty of rain. yay May the creek go down soonest for you so you can get out and hunt!!

Time here to check my eyelids for holes. Night everybody sleep well and pleasant dreams.
