A "LOOSE" GUIDE ON EXERCISING.......
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
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.

on our body.
6) I have flabby thighs, fortunately my stomach covers

a small country.
OUT OF THE MOUTH OF "BABES".....
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
The FAA reviewed the test thoroughly and had one
recommendation: "Use a thawed chicken."

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

A Message by GeorgeCarlin
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.Â Â He is a genius at writing about the ironies
and contradictions in ourÂ society.
The paradox of our time in history is
that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but
narrower viewpoints. We spendÂ more, 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 more problems, more medicine, but less
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh
too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too
tired, read too 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, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but
not a life. We've added years to life not life to years.
been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing
the 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
communicate 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 of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses, but broken homes. These are 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 and nothing in the stockroom. A time
when technology can bring this letter to 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 going to be
around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to 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 is the
only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a
cent. 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.

Folks, this is comming from one of my recipe

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 cancel. 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 more. 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 done. 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
"I need someone with an accounting degree," the man said.
"But mainly, I'm looking for someone to do my worrying for
"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 dollars!" the accountant exclaimed.
"How can such a small business afford a sum like that?"
owner said, "is your first worry."
