Good Morning, ,
Today is Tuesday, August 22

The eclipse was quite neat through my old gas welding
goggles. This was the 4th eclipse I watched with them. As
always I was surprised at how sharp the sun looks through
them. Not uncomfortably bright, but very sharp.

The neatest trick, though, was what Noella did. She used a
mirror to shine the eclipse onto her neighbors siding.
Keep that in mind for the next one!

Have Fun!

______________________________________________________ "Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today." --- Benjamin Franklin "Procrastinate Now! --- Hilary ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Ending his sermon, a preacher announced that he would preach on Noah and the Ark on the following Sunday, and gave the scriptural reference for the congregation to read ahead of time. A couple of boys noticed something interesting about the placement of the story in the Bible. They slipped into the church and glued two pages of the pulpit Bible together. The next Sunday, the preacher got up to read his text. "Noah took unto himself a wife," he began, "and she was" - he turned the page to continue - "three hundred cubits long, fifty wide and thirty high." He paused, scratched his head, turned the page back, read it silently, and turned the page again. Then he looked up at his congregation and said, "I've been reading this old Bible for near fifty years, but there are some things in it that still amaze me." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: 'Holy Cow! A talking chicken!'" The teacher was unable to continue for the next 10 minutes. ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wyndham Lathem Andrew Warren Chicago, Illinois Illinois Professor's Twisted Fantasies Led to Stabbing Two men from the academic world joined forces to live out their twisted murder fantasy, prosecutors said at a hearing for Wyndham Lathem and Andrew Warren in Chicago Sunday. Prosecutors said Lathem, a microbiology professor at Northwestern University, and Warren, a treasurer at Oxford University, communicated for months in an online chat room about their "sexual fantasies of killing others and then themselves," the Chicago Tribune reports. Prosecutors said the men decided to kill other people before killing each other simultaneously. Lathem allegedly decided that their first victim would be Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, his 26-year- old boyfriend. Prosecutors said that on July 27, days after Lathem paid for Warren to travel to the US to carry out their fantasies, they attacked Cornell-Duranleau while he was asleep in Lathem's apartment, the AP reports. The medical examiner testified that the attack left him with 70 stab wounds, some of which almost decapitated him. The two men then went on the run instead of carrying out their plan to kill each other, prosecutors say. After eight days, they surrendered to authorities in California. Lathem's lawyer told the court that his client, a plague expert who has since been fired by Northwestern, is a "distinguished microbiologist," but the judge denied bail for both men. "The heinous facts speak for themselves," he said. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosa Re: Find newsletters Dear Webby, Is there a site somewhere where I can find and select specific newsletters and see a sample or try them out?

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Remedy for Too Much Perfume Most people don't even realize they are wearing too much perfume. If you can still smell your perfume a half hour after putting it on, you likely are wearing too much. To help prevent putting too much on, spray it in front of you and then walk through the spray. To remove excess perfume, make a paste of water and baking soda and rub it where you applied the perfume, then rinse off the area with water.

____________________________________________________ Judi was talking to Monika one morning about a recent NASA new article. Judi said, "I can see how astronomers figure out the distance of stars and their size and temperatures and all that. But there's one thing I can't figure out." "What's that?" Monika asked. "How do they find out what the stars' names are?" ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A tour bus driver is driving with a bus load of seniors down a highway when he is tapped on his shoulder by a little old lady. She offers him a handful of peanuts, which he gratefully munches up. After about 15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder again and she hands him another handful of peanuts. She repeats this gesture about five more times. When she is about to hand him another batch again he asks the little old lady, "Why they don't you eat the peanuts yourself?". "We can't chew them because we've no teeth", she replied. The puzzled driver asks, "Why do you buy them then?" The old lady replied, "We just love the chocolate around them."

I thought the results were pretty interesting: 85% of women think their ass is too fat. 10% of women think their ass is too skinny. The other 5% sayd they don't care, they love him, he's a good man, and they would have married him anyway. ____________________________________________________
