There are two possible outcomes: If the result confirms the
hypothesis, then you've made a measurement. If the result
is contrary to the hypothesis, then you've made a discovery.

of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn

FOLK MUSIC SCHOLAR ALAN LOMAX DIES

Musicologist Alan Lomax, whose national radio show intro-
duced the music of legends like Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly,
Aunt Molly Jackson and Pete Seeger, died last Friday at
age 87. He and his father, John Avery Lomax, set up the
Archive of Folksong at the Library of Congress, and wrote
and published important folksong collections such as
Cowboy Songs and American Ballads and Folksongs. Lomax
also recorded Muddy Waters during a field trip to
Mississippi in 1942. Funeral services for Lomax are sche-
duled for Tuesday in Tarpon Springs, Fla., and plans for
a New York memorial service will be announced later.

lion. Rogers, who died in 1998, was named to the Country

THE BONEHEAD AWARDS
*****************************

Today we bestow FOUR bonehead awards!


Unapeeling Driving Method

Bonehead award one, from a story sent to me by reader Soltani Abbas,
goes to a Toronto man who was pulled over by Toronto police for
erratic driving and who was found to be driving barefoot with his feet
wrapped in banana peels.  He claimed that this would cure his bunions.
Police also said a big bloodhound was licking his ear while he was
driving.

Ohhh do I have some answers for 
this one that would get me fired !



If you want to repel gnats and mosquitoes and don't want to
use anything with chemicals, mix one tabelspoon of vanilla
extract to one cup of water. Apply to the exposed skin with
a cotton ball. This is safe for everyone including babies,
unless of course you are allergic to vanilla, in that case
a mosquito bite might be the lesser of two evils...

Cover the bottom of the ashtray with baking soda. This will neutralize the odor and help put out the cigarette quicker...


Now this is done on the 
I-net all the time



I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and
segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in
human beings, and that all human beings should be respected
as such, regardless of their color.
--Malcolm X

I have not placed reading before praying because I regard
it more important, but because, in order to pray aright, we
must understand what we are praying for.
--Angelina Grimke, American abolitionist


Figures, I missed at this range.

HAMBURGER RECALL INCREASES
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the recent recall
of possibly contaminated hamburger has been expanded to
19 million pounds of the product. So far health experts in
Colorado, where most of the concern over the product has
been voiced, report some 17 people have been sickened with
E. coli-caused infections. The beef was processed by the
huge ConAgra plant in Greeley, Colo., and was distributed
to many states. The contaminated product has the code
"EST. 969" on it, located within the USDA inspection seal.
Meanwhile, consumers, particularly those who do a lot of
outdoor grilling, are being reminded that hamburger should
reach a temperature of at least 160 degrees to kill any
bacteria. A cheap meat thermometer could be a good investment.





NASA CONTINUING TO WORK ON SHUTTLES
Engineers with NASA say they are still trying to figure out
what has caused some hairline cracks in space shuttle fuel
lines and whether major repairs are necessary. In a
statement to media, NASA's directors noted the entire
shuttle fleet has been grounded while experts make a
thorough examination of important hydrogen lines. Although
the cracks are very small, less than the width of a lead
pencil, questions remain: "How did they get there and what,
if anything, should be done?" Some experts say the real
concern is not that the cracks could cause any major
problems, but what if one should quickly expand? That
could lead to a Challenger-type disaster. Meanwhile, it
appears it may be a couple of months before the shuttles
can fly again, if a quick decision on the enigmatic cracks can be made.

'SLEEPER' HOUSE ON SALE FOR $10 MILLION

The futuristic house used in Woody Allen's 1973 film
"Sleeper" is for sale. It's not for buyers in the market
for a starter home: the owner wants $10 million for the
space-age digs on a high ridge in the Rocky Mountains
west of Denver. Software tycoon John Huggins bought the
7,500-square foot home on 15 acres for a reported $1.3
million in 1999 and spent millions repairing years of
neglect and adding loads of living space.

DIXIE CHICKS TO JAM WITH JAMES TAYLOR

The Dixie Chicks are back on the schedule for a Country
Music Television Crossroads special, but will be tune-
swapping with James Taylor instead of the Dave Mathews
Band. Taping will take place in Nashville on July 31 be-
fore an invitation-only audience and the cable network
plans to air the show in October. The Dave Mathews Band
cited a scheduling conflict when it pulled out of the
previous CMT Crossroads date with the Chicks, whose
"Long Time Gone" currently is rated No. 7 on Billboard's
country singles chart. Their latest album, "Home," is
slated for release Aug. 27, and Taylor's "October Road,"
is due out Aug. 13.





RIPENING TIPS:

Many fruits and vegetables found in supermarkets today look
ripe, but are hard as a rock. Soften them up by placing them
in a brown paper bag and hiding the bag away in a dark cabinet
for a day or two. This is great for items such as avacados,
kiwi fruit, peaches, nectarines, and more. Once ripe,
refrigerate the produce to preserve vitamins.

Never refrigerate a tomato that is not fully ripe. Most
tomatoes sold in stores are still ripening, and would benefit
from a few days on the counter. Cold temperatures alter the
fruit's flavor and stop the ripening process. Once ripe, a
tomato can be refrigerated for several days. To ripen a tomato
fast, put it with an apple in a perforated bag.


I agree with this.



Now That's What I Call Road Rage -------------

MINNESOTA - Gregory Peter Carr was annoyed by speeding
vehicles and heavy traffic in front of his home, by County
Roads 29 and 164 in Minnesota. So he took matters into his
own hands. Armed with a 12-gauge shotgun and approximately
14 rounds of ammunition, Carr aimed at vehicles passing in
front of his house and several were hit by his six shotgun
blasts. There were no injuries, but the road rager immedi-
ately went into hiding. Police found Carr in a nearby
soybean field and he remains in jail until his first court
appearance. He told authorities that all he wanted was the
drivers to simply slow down and take alternate routes.





PARKAY MARGARINE GOING HIGH TECH
Remember the TV commercials where a package of Parkay
Margarine keeps spouting the word "Butter!" every time
someone samples some of the product? The advertisement's
wording was as incessant as the current raft of Aflack
spots or the exploits of the battery bunny. Now, according
to the St. Petersburg Times, the company has started a
giveaway contest in which some tubs of the popular butter
substitute actually do talk when the lids are removed.
Using the same technology in talking greeting cards, the
high-tech tubs of Parkay actually say "Butter!" when
opened. Some 15,000 talking tubs have been shipped to
grocers. People who find the chattering tubs will win
prizes. Kraft has been using the "talking tubs" concept
for nearly 30 years.





NEW NATIONAL BYWAY ADDED
Old U.S. Highway 40 across Ohio is now a National Byway.
Working with national preservation groups, the stretch of
road, much of it still the original two-lane (in some
sections in eastern Ohio a strange three-lane highway),
the roadway has been declared a "national shrine."
Before its designation as U.S. 40, the old National Road
carried pioneers from the Washington and Baltimore areas
to the west. Its original terminus was Vandalia, Ill.
Ironically, the city of Vandalia, Ohio -- just north of
Dayton and home to that city's international airport --
was formed by people who thought they were headed for the
other Vandalia and were dropped off there by con artists.
Before heading west, many were told if they paid the price
they would be taken to Vandalia (Illinois). So, when the
wagons arrived in Vandalia, Ohio (some 150 miles shy of
their intended destination) they were told: "Get out.
You're here!" Hundreds, not having the money left to go
farther, became the original citizens of the Ohio city.
Other cities along the way, including the quaint towns
of Zanesville -- home of the historic "Y" bridge -- and
Concord -- John Glenn's hometown -- are adding museums
and special exhibits to celebrate the "rebirth" of the
highway. For more information, not only the Ohio section,
but the entire National Road, check out route40.net on the Internet.
