Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance .....................

The Xerox company (and others) have made available a web site where you can, for free, send thank you cards to our troops.  The card covers were designed by children and you have a large number of suggested messages or you can do your own:  Just another way to say thanks for living in this country...........
Thanks to Huber Smutz for sending this link!

Melodious Mary's Manic Mutterings ....................
I'm not saying the customer service in my bank is bad, but when I went in the other day and asked the clerk to check my balance she leaned over and pushed me.
I think the worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades.
The only thing that stops God from sending another flood is that the first one was useless
The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win it, you're still a rat
If not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled

You know you are too stressed if ...................................
You wonder if brewing is *really* a necessary step for the consumption of coffee.

You say the same sentence over and over again, not realizing that you've said it before.

You can hear mimes.

Things become "very clear."   Everything is "very clear, indeed."

You ask the drive-thru attendant if you can get your order to go.

Palatable Puns from the Previous Punster ...............................
The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a bar and sat down to drink a beer.   After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said, "Who owns the big white horse outside?"
The Lone Ranger said, "I do, Why?"   The cowboy said, "I just thought you'd like to know that your horse is about dead outside!"   The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and sure enough Silver was about to die from heat exhaustion.  The Lone Ranger got water and soon Silver was starting to feel a little better.
The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and said, "I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to help cool him down."    Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe" and begins running circles around Silver.  Unable to do anything except wait, the Lone Ranger returns to the bar to finish his drink.
A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, "Who owns that big white horse out side?"    The Lone Ranger stands and claims, "I do, what's wrong with him this time?"

The cowboy looks him in the eye and says, "Nothing, but you left your Injun running."
Bumper Stickers from the Lisbon Beltway ................
Sex on television can't hurt you unless you fall off.
Sorry, I don't date outside my species.
Eschew obfuscation.
Happiness is seeing your mother-in-law's face on the back of a milk carton.
It's lonely at the top, but you eat better.

Don't steal. The government hates competition.

I wonder why ........................
When an agnostic dies, does he go to the "great perhaps"?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Do you think Houdini ever locked his keys in his car?

Why is there a road sign that says "Braille Institute, Next Exit"?
Well, that's it this week from your embedded reporter, lurking in the outskirts of Absurdia, the principle city of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where they have built a bridge to your wallet and we don't care if our kids can "reed & rite" as long as they can vote for the party in power.

But, on the other hand ....................
Don't let your worries get the best of you;  remember, Moses started out as a basket case.
