My love you take my breath away What have you

JETER PURSUER DRAGGED TO COURT
A woman who was arrested for running onto
the Yankee Stadium infield to hand superstar Derek Jeter a note, was dragged
by police from the luxury store where she works for skipping a court date.
Kristielee Wilcox said she was worried about get- ting fired for being
handcuffed and escorted out of Bergdorf Goodman on Monday. On opening day,
April 5, Wilcox -- a make- up artist -- used a lip-liner to scrawl her phone
number on- to a piece of paper that she ran -- shoeless -- to
Jeter's place in the infield. Jeter covered his face with his
glove, presumably to conceal his laughter, as guards chased Wilcox around
the field. She finally was apprehended and spent the night in jail.

The Associated Press reports that Mel
Tillis has sold his theater in Branson, Mo. The country star announced
the sale of his 2,600-seat venue and 13 acres of land on Wednesday (July
10). He will perform 135 more shows there, through New Year's Eve, then he

between homes in Branson, Tennessee and Florida.
A blonde was down on her luck. In order to raise some money, she decided
to kidnap a kid and hold him for ransom. She went to the playground, grabbed
a kid, took him behind a tree, and told him, "I've kidnapped you." She
then wrote a note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put
$10,000 in a paper bag and put it under the pecan tree next to the slide on
the North side of the playground.
Signed, A Blonde."
Blonde then pinned the note to the kid's shirt and sent him home to show it
to his parents.
The next morning the blonde checked, and sure enough, a
paper bag was sitting beneath the pecan tree. The Blonde opened the bag and
found the $10,000 with a note that said, "How could you do this to a fellow

After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle.
They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and
placed something in his hand.
The guests in the front pews responded with
ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.
As her father
gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.
Recently I was in a restaurant having breakfast.
A woman came in and said
she needed to get a "to-go order." She said she was in a hurry because she
had to get online and talk . . . "to her AOL friends." (She actually said
those very words.)
She then ordered eggs, potatoes, and toast. When
asked if she wanted bacon, she replied, "No, I don't eat pork. But I would
like a double order of sausages, please."
Today's thought is: 020713 Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living
and your belief will help create the fact. -William James
adult children learn that rejection and abandonment are part and parcel of
being alive. We are so used to feeling as though things won't work out, that
fear-like a shadow-is always lurking behind us. Usually there's something
specific to be afraid of-that we won't have enough money to pay our bills,
someone we love will die, or our children won't do well in school. And
always there's the generalized fear that events will overwhelm us in spite
of our best efforts.
We need to be careful about creating what we look
for. Regardless of the frightening experiences of the past, we need to
believe that other results are possible: All loved ones don't leave, all
risks don't end in devastation, and all efforts aren't dashed on the rocks
New consequences are possible when we believe they're
possible. The brave new world that each of us seeks stands on the shoulders
of that belief.
I am sick and tired of being fearful. Today, I am
confident that positive efforts will yield positive results. * * * * * *

And the Criminals Keep Getting Dumber... ----------
CINCINNATI, Ohio - In
addition to having to worry about car accidents, distractions, and children
fighting, drivers also need to be aware of carjackers. In Cincinnati, two
carjackers jumped into a woman's car and demanded all of her cash.
Which amounted to about $8. So the woman cleverly offered to stop at the
supermarket and cash a check for them. Only, instead of filling out the
check, she wrote "call police" on the document, and the cashier immediately
notified authorities. According to police, the men were caught in the shop's
park- ing lot and have been charged with kidnapping and robbery.
Six Japanese schoolchildren have been banned from a judo tournament for
plucking their eyebrows.
The boy and five girls were punished by Tochigi
Prefecture's junior high school sports federation. Officials say tournament
rules ban plucked or shaved eyebrows.
Head of the federation, Tatsuo
Kakizaki, said, "Judo is a sport that places enormous importance on manners
and thin eyebrows create an unpleasant image.
Dyed or tinted hair,
piercing and even hair ribbons are also forbidden.
