Why do some chefs wear tall white hats?  Legend has it that
royal cooks were once honored with cloth "crowns" that covered
any loose locks. Over time, the hats became white (to show
food stains) and taller (to better ventilate the head). 
Today this headwear remains a symbol of the master chef.

True or false?  Put ice on a burn.  FALSE!  Ice reduces the
blood flow, which can slow healing.  Instead, run cool water
on the burn for at least 10 minutes.  Then look at the spot. 
If it's blistered or charred, go to the ER.

Sweat itself is odorless, only when combined with bacteria
that are breaking down dead skin cells does it become smelly.
Smelly sweat is called bromohidrosis.  Sweat is composed of
water, sodium chloride, potassium salts, urea, and lactic acid.

*grin* It makes people wonder!

No Susan, this ain't me. St. Patrick's Day Engagement

An Irishman, by the name of O'Mally proposed  to his girl on St. Patrick's
Day.  He gave her  a ring with a synthetic diamond.  The excited  young lass
showed it to her father, a jeweler.   He took one look at it and saw it
wasn't real.

The young lass on learning it wasn't real  returned to her future husband.
She protested  vehemently about his cheapness.

"It was in honor of St. Patrick's Day," he smiled.  "I gave you a sham

Six retired Floridians were playing poker in the Condo clubhouse when
Meyerwitz loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead
at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five
complete their playing time standing up. Finkelstein looks around and
asks, "Now, who is going to tell the wife?"They draw straws and Goldberg
picks the short one.

They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any
worse. "Gentlemen! Discreet? I'm the most discreet mensch you will ever
meet. Discretion is my middle name, leave it to me." Goldberg goes over
to the Meyerwitz apartment, knocks on the door, the wife answers, asks
what he wants.

Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost $500 in a poker game and is
afraid to come home."


Goldberg says, "OK I'll go tell him."

Know this feeling too!

A GOLFER sliced the ball from the tee over the hill into a valley. Hearing a
yell,he dashed to the top of the hill to see a man lying unconscious below.

When the golfer ran down to the man, the stricken fellow opened one eye and
said calmly,

"I'm a lawyer and I'm going to sue you for five thousand dollers."

"I'm so sorry," the golfer replied,"but I did yell 'Fore.'"

"I'll take it,"said the lawyer.

My husband is an Army helicopter pilot, and we never seem to live in
one place for very long.  Typically, during a move, we stay in a
hotel until we can find a permanent place to have our things
delivered.  Our children enjoy this greatly, although sometimes it
can be a bit confusing for them.  One day, as we were driving down an
interstate and passed a Holiday Inn, our three-year-old squeaked in
excitement from the backseat.

"Look!" he exclaimed.  "There's our old house!"

& I believe it, I have one

Three boys were heading home from school one day when one started the
time-honored game of paternal one-upmanship. He said, "My dad's way
faster than any of yours, he can throw a 90-mph fast ball from the
pitcher's mound and run and catch it just after it crosses the plate!"

One of the other boys said, "Oh yeah? Well, my dad can shoot an arrow
from his bow and run to the target and hold it up to make sure the
arrow hits the bulls eye!"

The last boy said, "Your dads don't even come close to being faster
than mine. My dad works for the government, and even though he works
every day until 4:00 he gets home at 3:30!"

Now that's going to be a great marriage !

After a day of grueling maneuvers under the blazing Texas sun, the
platoon stood in front of the barracks. "All right, ladies, think
about this," bellowed the drill instructor. "If you could have ten
minutes alone, right now, with anyone in the world, who would it be?"

Amid much mumbling, one voice was heard from the back row. "My recruiter."

It feels so good to cry .
--Susan Cygnet

Some of us were taught that it's bad to express our feelings
directly-crying, wailing, jumping up and down for joy-that it's
good manners to talk softly, slowly, and politely and to sit still.

But what happens to our feelings when we sit still?  If they don't
get expressed, they must be caught inside our bodies.  Trapped
feelings are like birds in a cage, or a rabbit in a trap-they try to
get out any way they can.  They peck on our heads and give us
headaches.  They scratch at our stomachs and make us hurt.

We must let them out.  We must laugh and cry.  Then our bodies
will be happy, and our feelings will curl up in our laps like happy

Am I ignoring the physical symptoms of trapped feelings?

The 13 Rules of Life

1. Never give yourself a haircut after three margaritas.

2. You need only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

3. The five most essential words for a healthy, vital relationship "I apologize" and "You are right."

4. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

5. When you make a mistake, make amends immediately. It's easier to eat crow while it's still warm.

6. The only really good advice that your mother ever gave you was, "Go! You might meet somebody!"

7. If he/she says that you are too good for him/her--believe them.

8. Learn to pick your battles; ask yourself, 'Will this matter one year from now? How about one month? One week? One day?'

9. Never pass up an opportunity to pee.

10. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another chance!

11. Living well really is the best revenge. Being miserable because of a bad or former relationship just might mean that the other person was right about you.

12. Work is good, but it's not that important.

13. And finally... Be really nice to your friends and family. You never know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.

general direction of yonderways.

is - as in "Going to town, be back directly."

All true West Virginians know exactly when "by and by" is.

True West Virginians know instinctively that the best gesture
of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot
fried chicken and a big bowl of cold tater salad. (If the
trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add some hot
biscuits and nanner puddin'.

True West Virginians grow up knowing the difference between
"pert' near" and "a right far piece."

True West Virginians both know and understand the differences
between a redneck and a good ol' boy.

noun, verb and an adverb.

is more American than America!

What happens when a president gets elected in a year
with a "0"(zero) at the end?
Also notice it goes in increments of 20 years.

And LOOK!  Year 2000 is where it lands!

1840: William Henry Harrison (Died in Office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (Assassinated)
1880: James A.  Garfield (Assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (Assassinated)
1920: Warren G.  Harding (Died in Office)
1940: Franklin D.  Roosevelt (Died in Office)
1960: John F.  Kennedy (Assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (Survived Assassination Attempt)
And to think that we had 2 guys duking it out in the
courts to be theone elected in 2000.
You might be interested in this next part.

Have a history teacher explain this ---- If they can.

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F.  Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F.  Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

Both wives lost their children while living in the
White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.

Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born
in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born
in 1939.

Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.' Kennedy
was shot in a car called a 'Lincoln' made by Ford

Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker:
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.
