1) It is well documented that for every mile that you jog,
you add one minute to your life. This enables you, at
85 years old, to spend an additional 5 months in a
nursing home at $5,000 per month.

2) My grandmother started walking five miles a day
when she was 60. She's 97 now and we don't know
where the heck she is.

3) I joined a health club last year, spent about $400.
Have not lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.

4) I have to exercise early in the morning before
my brain figures out what I am doing.

5) I figure if God meant us to touch our toes, he would
have put them further up on our body.

6) I have flabby thighs, fortunately my stomach covers them.

7) The advantage of exercising every day is that
you die healthier.

8) If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
start with a small country.


Justin, 3, was asked by his Daddy what his Daddy's
name was. Justin replied, "Daddy!" Daddy again said,
"No, what do people call me? What is Mommy's name?"
Justin answered, "Cindy!" Daddy said, "That's right, so
what is my name?" Again Justin replied with, "Daddy!"
Thinking carefully Daddy asked,"OK, Justin, what does
Grandma call me?" To which Justin replied, "Nuthead!"
Their aunt gave Holly, 3, and Ryan, 5, a goldfish. The
children were very excited, but their mother could see
that the fish was moving very slowly and she wasn't sure
how long it would survive. The next morning her doubts
were confirmed when she overheard Ryan tell his little
sister with excitement,"Look, Holly, he sleeps on his side
just like I do!"
Michael, 4, was talking about church. He said with
excitement, "My favorite thing is when we all sing the
vegetable song!" When his mother asked him which
one that was, he replied, "You know, Mom,
'Let There Be Peas On Earth!'"


(Whenever I heard that phrase as a child I would always go..
"ewwwwwwww"....but as an adult I have learned the many
advantages and uses of this handy product.)

Wheat germ is essentially the embryo of the unprocessed
wheat kernel, commonly known as a wheat berry. It is a
concentrated source of vitamins, minerals and protein.
It has a nutty flavor and is very oily, which causes it to turn
rancid quickly. Wheat germ is sold in both toasted and
natural forms and is used to add nutrition to a variety
of foods. Wheat germ oil , an extraction of the germ,
is strongly flavored and expensive.

It seems the US Federal Aviation Administration has a
unique device for testing the strength of windshields on
airplanes. The device is a gun that launches a dead chicken
at a plane's windshield at approximately the speed the plane flies.

The theory is that if the windshield doesn't crack from the
carcass impact, it'll survive a real collision with a bird
during flight. It seems the British were very interested
in this and wanted to test a windshield on a brand new,
speedy locomotive they were developing.

They borrowed the FAA's chicken launcher, loaded the
chicken and fired. The ballistic chicken shattered the
windshield, went through the engineer's chair, broke an
instrument panel and embedded itself in the back wall of the
engine cab. The British were stunned and asked the FAA to
recheck the test to see if everything was done correctly.

The FAA reviewed the test thoroughly and had
one recommendation: "Use a thawed chicken."

bada bing, bada boom after I finish a joke here??)

can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."


A Message by GeorgeCarlin

Isn't it amazing that the GeorgeCarlin â?" the often gross and mouthy
comedian of the 70's and 80's could write something so very eloquent ...
and so very appropriate post 9/11/01.  He is a genius at writing
about the
ironies and contradictions in our society.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spendÂ
but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet
problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our
possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom,
hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.
added years to life not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing
street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner
space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up
the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our
prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish
less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to
hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we
less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These
days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to
quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter
you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to
just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not
to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up
you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your
side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that
the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a
Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes
from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment
for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give
time to speak and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

A man in Los Angeles, California was arrested for negligent
discharge of a weapon after shooting his toilet five times with
a 38 caliber handgun.

He claims that he just got upset and " had it up to here" after
being unable to dislodge a hairbrush his daughter had flushed
earlier in the day.

The man received a psychological evaluation and was released
on personal recognizance. It is not known whether or not the
toilet pressed charges.

In Texas a burglary attempt was thwarted when a would be
burglar broke through a residential bathroom window and
slipped, falling head-first against the resident's toilet.

The burglar was still semi-conscious on the bathroom floor
when the police arrived. He was held at the local hospital for
observation and then turned over to the police for arrest.

Three mischievous boys went to the zoo one day for an
outing, since they had the day off from school.

They decided to visit the elephant cage, but soon enough,
they were picked up by a cop for causing a disturbance.

The officer hauled them off to security for questioning.

The supervisor in charge asked them to give their names and
tell what they were doing at the elephant cage.

The first boy innocently said, "My name is Gary, and I was
just throwing peanuts into the elephant cage."

The second added, "My name is Larry, and all I was doing
was throwing peanuts into the elephant cage.

The third boy was a little shaken up and said, "Well, my name
is Peter, but my friends call me Peanuts."

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger,
more complex, and more violent.
It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage
-- to move in the opposite direction." 

- E. F. Schumacher

Folks, this is comming from one of my recipe newsletters that I get & I didn't takne the time to check it out so BEFORE you use anything here check it out for yourself ! ! ! PLEASE CHECK THIS FIRST ! ! !

Followup from yesterday's credit card alert:
Another subscriber sent this email and I would like to
pass it on:
I received this last year and sent it to all my friends thought was a
great idea.  and I did it. Only thing is you have to remember where you
file it.
Just FYI
Place the contents of your wallet on a photocopy machine. Do both sides
of each license, credit card, etc., so you will know what you had in
your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call to
Keep the photocopy in a safe place.
A corporate attorney sent this out to the employees in his company.
I pass it along, for your information.
We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed using your
name, address, SS#, credit, etc. Unfortunately I (the author of this
piece who happens to be an attorney) have firsthand knowledge, because
my wallet was stolen last month and within a week the thieves ordered an
expensive monthly cell phone package, applied for a VISA credit card,
had a credit line approved to buy a Gateway computer, received a PIN
number from DMV to change my driving record information online, and
But here's some critical information to limit the damage in case this
happens to you or someone you know. As everyone always advises, cancel
your credit cards immediately, but the key is having the toll free
numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those
where you can find them easily. File a police report immediately in the
jurisdiction where it was stolen, this proves to credit providers you
were diligent, and is a first step toward an investigation (if there
ever is one). But here's what is <BR>
perhaps most important: (I never ever thought to do this) - Call the
three national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a
fraud alert on your name and SS#. I had never heard of doing that until
advised by a bank that called to tell me an application for credit was
made over the Internet in my name. The alert means any company that
checks your credit knows your information was stolen and they have to
contact you by phone to authorize new credit. By the time I was advised
to do this, almost 2 weeks after the theft, all the damage had been
There are records of all the credit checks initiated by the thieves'
purchases, none of which I knew about before placing the alert. Since
then, no additional damage has been done, and the thieves threw my
wallet away this weekend (someone turned it in). It seems to have
stopped them in their tracks.

Fresh out of business school, a young man answered
a want ad for an accountant. Now he was being
interviewed by a very nervous man who ran a small
business that he had started himself.

"I need someone with an accounting degree," the man
said. "But mainly, I'm looking for someone to do my
worrying for me."

"Excuse me?" the accountant said.

"I worry about a lot of things," the man said. "But I
don't want to have to worry about money. Your job
will be to take all the money worries off my back."

"I see," the accountant said. "And how much does the
job pay?"

"I'll start you at eighty thousand."

"Eighty thousand dollars!" the accountant exclaimed.
"How can such a small business afford a sum like that?"

"That," the owner said, "is your first worry."

& now your at the end of the letter, I hope that you enjoyed
