Tell us your favorite Joke / Banned from Store
« on: July 24, 2009, 10:42:22 PM »
Dear Mrs. Murray,

Whilst we would like to thank you for your valued custom and use of the Tesco Loyalty Card, the Manager of our store in Banbury is considering banning you and your family from shopping with us, unless your
husband stops his antics.

Below is a list of his actions over the past few months all verified by our surveillance cameras:

1. June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's trolleys when they weren't looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

3. July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to feminine products aisle.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official tone, 'Code 3' in housewares.. .... and watched what happened.

5. August 14: Moved a 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.

6. September 15: Set up a tent in the outdoor clothing department and told shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring sausages and a Calorgas stove.

7. September 23: When the Deputy Manager asked if she could help him, he began to cry and asked, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?'

8.. October 4: Looked right into the security camera; used it as a mirror, picked his nose, and ate it.

9. October 10: While appearing to be choosing kitchen knives in the Housewares aisle asked an assistant if he knew where the antidepressants were.

10. November 3: Darted around the store suspiciously, loudly humming the Mission Impossible' theme.

11.November 6: In the kitchenware aisle, practised the 'Madonna look' using different size funnels.

12. November 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed, yelled' PICK ME!' 'PICK ME!'

13. November 21: When an announcement came over the loudspeaker, assumed the foetal position and screamed 'NO! NO! It's those voices again.'

And; last, but not least:

14. November 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited a while; then yelled, very loudly, 'There is no toilet paper in here.'

National News / Gunman, Guards Exchange Fire at Nat. Holocaust Museum
« on: June 10, 2009, 08:43:26 PM »
By NAFEESA SYEED, Associated Press Writer Nafeesa Syeed, Associated Press Writer – 21 mins ago    WASHINGTON – An elderly gunman opened fire with a rifle inside the crowded U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday, gravely wounding a security guard before being shot. Authorities said they were investigating a white supremacist as the possible shooter.
 
The assailant was in critical condition, said Washington, D.C., Mayor Adrian Fenty.
 
D.C. Police Chief Kathy Lanier said the gunman appeared to have acted alone. He was "engaged by security guards immediately after entering the door" with a rifle, she said. The museum normally has a heavy security presence with guards positioned both inside and outside. All visitors are required to pass through metal detectors at the entrance, and bags are screened. But Lanier told reporters at a hastily convened news conference, "The second he stepped into the building he began firing."
 
Authorities said they were investigating for any possible connection with terrorism or hate crime.
 
The museum, located just off the National Mall near the Washington Monument, is a popular tourist attraction. It draws about 1.7 million visitors each year. Roads surrounding the museum were closed at least temporarily and blocked off with yellow tape. Several police cars and officers on horses surrounded the area.
 
One law enforcement official said James Von Brunn, a white supremacist, was under investigation in the shooting, and a second official said the elderly man's car was found near the museum and tested for explosives. They spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss the investigation.

Tell us your favorite Joke / So This Frog Walks Into A...
« on: May 15, 2009, 01:45:33 PM »
A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.

"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly  formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."

She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"



(folks, you're gonna luv this)
                  

The bank manager looks back at her and says...

"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan, His old man's a Rolling Stone[/]

Tell us your favorite Joke / Financial Planning
« on: April 29, 2009, 08:28:56 PM »
This came in an email. Too funny.
 
Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.  When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a wife with which to share his fortune.  One evening at an investment meeting he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.  Her natural beauty took his breath away.

"I may look like just an ordinary man," he said to her, "but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit $200 million."  Impressed, the woman obtained his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.

Women are so much better at financial planning than men.

Business Opinion / Re: Veterinarians in Pulaski County?
« on: April 29, 2009, 08:01:06 PM »
I take my animals to both Dr. Struckhoff (Y Hwy) and Dr. Hackworth (Best Friends). I've also seen the other two vets at Best Friends (Dr. Rainwater and another female Dr.). Both Struckhoff and Hackworth have been there for me through tough times. Struckhoff once came in on the weekend, after hours, to see my grandmother's dog for me. He saved the puppers leg from having to be amputated (long story).

Dr. Hackworth has also been excellent with me. I first went to him after being told my dog had severe hip dysplasia and atrophy in a rear leg (by Cross Creek's Doc T.) and he was able to re-xray my dog for submission to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. My dog's hips are fine. After that incident, I had my file pulled from Cross Creek and haven't went back.

Once, both Drs were unavailable, late at night. It was an emergency and so we went to Springfield's Em Clinic. I don't hold it against them that they were unavailable. We are all human and have our own lives. :) They are still great vets! :)

How difficult are they? What do they need to thrive?
 
I was thinking about planting them in a box type container and using the thornless variety. They would get a great deal of full sunlight in the location that I am thinking of.
 
Thanks;

Part of the reason people live in the country is to let their pets run free - especially if you own a lot of property.

If one owns property - fence it. Fence an acre or two and your pets will get the joy of running "free" while being safely contained. I agree with Kari. When the dogs wander up to us here, I check for tags/collar/microchip, run an ad or two, and then they are put up for adoption and their "owners" never see them again.

It never ceases to amaze me that "responsible owners" want to risk their pets being injured for the sake of "running free" (as if they are some wild animal). Domestic Dogs want to be with their people. They are pack oriented. They need your time and attention and to be kept close to you.

Business Opinion / Re: My Walmart Experience
« on: February 03, 2009, 07:29:37 PM »
Have you ever wanted to slap one the workers for their attitude the have. 

Yes! My mother and I were shopping together and we had asked them about something camera/film related (we had already called prior to going and was told that they still performed the service). Everytime we would try to tell the worker that we had been told by Customer Service that they still perform the service, the worker would jump in and interrupt us with this attitude! Ugh! She kept saying, "They [Customer Service] don't know what we do back here!". We left and found a CSM and told her. I doubt the woman was disciplined - she's still back there. But the CSM got an earful. LOL

I've said this before but I'll say it again. It is our reponsibility to care for our animals. That care includes making sure that they are safe. Dogs (and cats) left loose to run around are not safe. Especially close to the river and roadways where they could easily be ran over, drown, or stolen (as may be the case here). They are also a hazard (if they are on the road) to those of us driving who will swerve to avoid your companion.

Many of you are older and are used to our rural ways (which has included this behavior of putting our cats and dogs out and always having them remain close to the house, no training required), but as our rural area is becoming more developed (and populated), we have to realize that our care for our animals also must change. DTM makes a great point about how we would never toss our children out unsupervised and shouldn't do it with our pets either.

Please, don't throw them out to rough it on their own. We are talking domesticated animals here...not wild animals that are capable of caring for theirselves indefinately.

Although it could have been stated more kindly than OCP's post, his point is the same.   

It's also a good point that someone made - that there are do-gooders out there who will mistake your pet for a lost/runaway pet and pick them up. If they are not microchipped (they can slip the collar with tags) they may be only briefly advertised before given to someone else.

I am sorry to hear about people's pets becoming lost. :( I hope they wander back or are returned.

Tell us your favorite Joke / Acts 2:38
« on: January 27, 2009, 11:49:57 PM »
A woman had just returned to her home from church, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the
Act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled:
'Stop!  Acts 2:38!'
(Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven.)

The burglar stopped in his tracks.
The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar:
'Why did you just stand there?
All the old lady did was yell a scripture to You.'

'Scripture?' replied the burglar.
'She said she had an Ax and Two 38s!'

« on: December 11, 2008, 05:06:31 PM »
If you had the knowledge that your child were going to be born a homosexual, would you abort?

Absolutely not.
 
Quote
How would you raise a child you knew were going to be a homosexual? Would you force them to be something they weren't? Would it be heterosexuality or the highway?

The same way I am raising my other child. And of course not.
 
Quote
If there were a procedure that could change the genetic makeup of your child during early developmental stages of gestation to prevent homosexuality, would you do it? Should you be able to make that decision? Should a gay expecting mother be allowed to have her fetus genetically engineered into a lesbian?

No.
No, I don't think that we should be able to make the decision. Sexuality is not a reason to abort a child or to alter a child. We should love (and support) our children regardless of their sexual orientation.
That goes for both straight and gay people.

Tell us your favorite Joke / Adam and Eve
« on: November 18, 2008, 08:45:44 PM »
Sharing, it might be old to you, but I just read it. :)
 
One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls to God. “Lord, I have a problem!”
“What’s the problem, Eve”?
“Lord, I know you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedic snake, but I’m just not happy.”
“Why is that, Eve”?, the reply came from above.
“Lord, I am lonely, and I’m sick to death of apples.”
Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you.”
“What’s a man, Lord?”
“This man will be a flawed creature, with many bad traits. He’ll lie, cheat and be vainglorious; all in all, he’ll give you a hard time. But….he’ll be bigger, faster, and will like to hunt and kill things. He will look silly at times, but will be a companion.  He will be witless and will revel in childish things like fighting and kicking a ball. He won’t be too smart, so he’ll also need your advice to think properly.”
“Sounds great,” says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow. “What’s the catch, Lord”?
“Well…you can have him on one condition”.
“What’s that, Lord”?
“As I said, he’ll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring…so you’ll have to let him believe that I made him first.  Just remember, it’s our little secret….woman to woman”!!!
