Helpful Hints

Thanks Julie!

Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove,
set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy.
No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it
really works.
Mona, Orlando, FL


Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all
broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up
mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into
egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it
with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You
get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat
less sugar/calories p er serving.
Kathy, Mesick , MI


Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place
them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will
keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
Dave, Camden , DE


Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants,work the nutrients in your soil. Wet
newspapers put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover
with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some
gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.
Linda, Monmouth Jct., NJ


Broken Glass
Use a dry cotton ball to pick up little

slivers of glass - the fibers catch ones you can't see!
Olive, Santee , CA

No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes
away.
Diane, Moran, SC

Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating your plants sprinkle your plants with
cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the
squirrels won't come near it.
Kathy, Maumelle , AR

MINE!!!!!
If you purchase a new bike for your child, place their picture
inside the handle bar before placing the grips on. if the bike is
stolen and later recovered, remove the grip and there is your proof
who owns the bike.
Janet, Carthage , IL

Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an
empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It
can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.
Donna, Anderson , SC

Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not
have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that
cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and -
voila - static is gone.
Pam, Maple Rapids, NH

Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with
hot water. Dump out the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Next, add
your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and watch how easily it
comes right out.
Kim, Goldsboro , NC


Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the
glove box of your car. When the windows fog, rub with the eraser!
Works better than a cloth!
Alicia, Tampa , FL


Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include
something inside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for
an hour or two. Voila! It unseals easily.
Mary, Lockhart , TX


Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's a lot cheaper
than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a
great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when
you tried it in your hair. ..
Kerry, Canada,

Good-bye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass fill it 1/2"
with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dishwashing liquid, mix
well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!
Barbra, Birch Run, MI

Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it
"home," & can't digest it so it kills them.. It may take a week or
so, esp. if it rains, but it works & you don't have the worry about
pets or small children being harmed!
Teresa, Mitchell , SD

Take Baby Powder to the Beach
Keep a small bottle of baby powder in your beach bag. When your
ready to leave the beach sprinkle yourself and kids with the powder
and the sand will slide right off your skin.

the $2 bill

I think we need to quit saving our $2 bills and bring them out in public..
The younger generation doesn't know they exist.

STORY:
On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat.
In my billfold are a $50 bill and a $2 bill.
I figure that with a $2 bill, I can get something to eat and not have to worry about anyone getting irritated at me for trying to break a $50 bill.

Me:
"Hi, I'd like one seven-layer burrito please, to go "

Server:
"That'll be $1.04. Eat in?"

Me:
"No, it's to go.." At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it kind of funny.

Server:
"Uh, hang on a sec, I'll be right back."

He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot.
The following conversation occurs between the two of them:

Server:
"Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?"

Manager:
"No. A what?"

Server:
"A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me."

Manager:
"Ask for something else. There's no such thing as a $2 bill."

Server:
"Yeah, thought so."

He comes back to me and says, "We don't take these. Do you have anything else?"

Me:
"Just this fifty. You don't take $2 bills? Why?"

Server:
"I don't know."

Me:
"See here where it says legal tender?"

Server:
"Yeah."

Me:
"So, why won't you take it?"

Server:
"Well, hang on a sec."

He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I'm a shoplifter, and says to him, "He says I have to take it."

Manager:
"Doesn't he have anything else?"

Server:
"Yeah, a fifty. I'll get it and you can open the safe and get c! hange "

Manager:
"I'm not opening the safe with him in here."

Server:
"What should I do?"

Manager:
"Tell him to come back later when he has real money."

Server:
"I can't tell him that! You tell him."

Manager:
"Just tell him."

Server:
"No way! This is weird. I'm going in back."

The manager approaches me and says, "I'm sorry, but we don't take big bills this time of night."

Me:
"It's only seven o'clock ! Well then, here's a two dollar bill."

Manager:
"We don't take those, either."

Me:
"Why not?"
Manager:
"I think you know why."

Me:
"No really, tell me why."

Manager:
"Please leave before I call mall security."

Me:
"Excuse ! me?"

Manager:
"Please leave before I call mall security."

Me:
"What on earth for?"

Manager:
"Please, sir."

Me:
"Uh, go ahead, call them."

Manager:
"Would you please just leave?"

Me:
"No."

Manager:
"Fine -- have it your way then."

Me:
"Hey, that's Burger King, isn't it?"

At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone around the corner.. I have two people staring at me from the dining area, and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect. A few minutes later this 45-year-oldish guy Comes in.

Guard:
"Yeah, Mike, what's up?"

Manager (whispering):
"This guy is trying to give me some (pause) funny money."

Guard:
"No kidding! What?"

Manager:
"Get this A two dollar bill."

Guard (incredulous): "Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?"

Manager:
"I don't know. He's kinda weird. He says the only other thing he has is a fifty."

Guard:
"Oh, so the fifty's fake!"

Manager:
"No, the two dollar bill is."

Guard:
"Why would he fake a two dollar bill?"

Manager:
"I don't know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?"

Guard:
"Yeah."

Security Guard walks over to me and......

Guard:
"Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you're trying to use."

Me:
"Uh, no."

Guard:
"Lemme see 'em."

Me:!
"Why?"

Guard:
"Do you want me to get the cops in here?"

At this point I am ready to say, "Sure, please!" but I want to eat, so I say "I'm just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill.

I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I'm taking a swing at him. He takes the bill, turns it over a few times in his hands, and says, "Hey, Mike, what's wrong with this bill?"

Manager:
"It's fake."

Guard:
"It doesn't look fake to me."

Manager:
"But it's a two dollar bill."

Guard:
"Yeah?"

Man! ager:
"Well, there's no such thing, is there?"

The security guard and I both look at him like he's an idiot, and it dawns on the guy that he has no clue.

So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and some of those cinnamon thingies, too.

Made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what happens when I try to buy stuff. If I got the right group of people, I could probably end up in jail. You get free food there, too.


Just think...those two will be voting soon.........................................

Interesting email....

Thats what i'll call this one....Interesting email.
It was from a while ago, but what the heck....

Letter from ex subscriber

HiYou guys just say free stuff... Do you have any idea where i am located.. well, if you do not know...hereis the information... i live in INDIA....n i can't see a single offer for a person who lives in INDIA...
Nocoupons...no competitions.. no bon-bons...
no activities... if you guys are truely working to keepthe whole world happy let me tell you...YOU ARE NOT...I am sure there are many people across different countries who feel the same way about such e-mails....SO Please do something to treat everyone alike..."Either be a man of your words or don't say a
word"
Thank you,Laura---

Well, alrighty then. And here was my response. (yeah, I can be a little rude at times)

hahahaha, then unsubscribe.
Out of the bazillions of subscribers to this list, you are probably the only one from India. sorry. No company is going to pay $50 to send a sample to you =(


And her response back

Hi...
You guys are the most sarcastic... rude... and pathetic set of people who exist.

Being polite is not something that would do any harm to you... and neither will it make your list any less... May be you should just consider writing polite notes to human beings...

And by the way..... i dont need any money from your disorganized organization...

Thanks for the no help or answer to my question...

Treating a human being like one... does not hold good for any country in specific... You do it because you are one...

Any idea how much you can demotivate a human being with your sarcasm... If you know then please do something about it...

You will never hear from me ever again...

Laura


so, was I really that bad? Lets discuss...

Im going through my "hate" mail folder. Here is another

This is a comment I got for listing the post below in one of my newsletters.

"I like your newsletter but in reference to your beethhoven comment, I find it completely offensive that you would put anything anti-abortion related in your newsletter."


Two Tough Questions (I dont know how true it is, but its very interesting)

Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three
who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.

Candidate A -Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with
astrologists. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks
8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B -He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used
opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.!

Candidate C -He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't
smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?


Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, the answer to the abortion question:
If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.

Another...

I guess someone just wanted to vent on me.
I really have no control over this.... I guess he/she cant get samples for serving overseas?

I THINK YOUR LETTER AND OTHER LETTERS S.U.C.K.! ARE
YOU ALL PREJUDICE AGAINST U.S.SERVICEMEMBERS IN THE
ARMNED FORCES? NO! THEN WHY IS ALL YOUR LINKS OFF
LIMITS TO THOSE SERVING OVERSEAS? DOES YOUR SPONSORS
KNOW YOU DO NOT SUPPORT THE MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM?
MAYBE WE SHOULD TELL THEM!

Dogs

Even more responses to things I post....

I found this email very disturbing and will be unsubscribing. I cant imagine the person who wrote the part about the dogs at the top of the email to have any human decency or morals to be that cruel i8n the way they referred to those poor dogs. I could tell with the attitude he dislikes dogs and would most likely be an abuser and that would be the reason those dogs turned out mean spirited due to the nastines of the person who wrote the email. They should know there is no place for their kind in heaven..If it was written to be funny it wasn't at all containing of any humor.
You should be ashamed to pass on such garbage.

You know, this really IS humor. Right?
Me personally, I have 2 dogs. They are a pain im my butt sometimes, but I love them nonetheless.

THESE ARE ACTUAL NEWSPAPER ADS

* Free Yorkshire Terrier: 8 years old. Hateful little dog. Bites.
* Free Puppies: half Cocker Spaniel, half sneaky neighbor’s dog.

Killer Biscuits

This is only humor. I HOPE its not true.

KILLER BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER (the actual AP headline)

Linda Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.
Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.

One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that
Linda's eyes were now open, and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda ref used to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.

A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head.

When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially
passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid.

Linda is a blonde and a Democrat, but I'm certain that's irrelevant.

So which was your favorite?

Here are a couple of the ones I liked.


February 6, 2007

Thousand-Hand Guanyin

Thank you Vicki!
This is NICE!

Make sure you read everything before watching the video.

This is breathtaking. Go to the link at bottom and
be ready to enjoy an absolutely beautiful piece.

There is an awesome dance, called the Thousand-Hand Guanyin,
which is making the rounds across the net. Considering the tight coordination
required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing, even if they
were not all deaf.

Yes, you read correctly. All 21 of the dancers are
complete deaf-mutes. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four
corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers deliver a visual spectacle
that is at once intricate and stirring.

Its first major international debut was in Athens last year at the

closing ceremonies for the 2004 Paralympics. But it
had long been in the repertoire of the Chinese Disabled People's
Performing Art Troupe and had traveled to more than 40 countries.

Its lead dancer is 29 year old Tai Lihua, who has a BA from the Hubei Fine Arts
Institute. The video was recorded in Beijing during the Spring Festival this year.

Just in time for valentines day!

Any guys out there? Pay Attention!


James,
Just in time for Valentine's day.


For centuries, gardeners, poets, and lovers have assigned meaning to flowers. Following are some of the most popular blooms and their romantic meanings.

Ambrosia = reciprocal love
Pink carnation = I will never forget you
Red chrysanthemum = I love you
Daffodil = Unrequited love
Daisy = innocence and loyalty
Forget-me-not = true love
Gardenia = secret love
Calla lily = beauty
Lily-of-the-valley = sweetness
White lily = purity
Narcissus = stay as sweet as you are
Orange blossom = eternal love
Orchid = love and beauty
Primrose = I can't live without you
Red tulip = declaration of love
Stephanotis = happiness in marriage
Yellow tulip = sunshine in your smile
Blue violet = I'll be true
Viscaria = let's dance
Magenta zinnia = lasting affection


Roses Are for Lovers
Roses are in a category by themselves. Giving them is the quintessential romantic gesture, although you may be surprised to learn that not all roses mean love. Some represent other emotions: dark crimson roses are for times of mourning and yellow roses speak of jealousy and waning love!

Most roses signify love.


Single full-bloom rose = I love you
Hibiscus rose = delicate beauty
Pink roses = perfect happiness
Red rosebud = pure and lovely
Tea rose = I will remember you always
White roses = innocence and purity
Red roses = love
Thorn less rose = love at first sight

any chocolate lovers?

TOKYO (Feb. 13) - A Japanese spa is offering the perfect aphrodisiac for Valentine's Day -- chocolate baths. Those who just can't get enough of the sweet stuff can immerse themselves in water mixed with cacao and fragrant bath powders. Twice a day, staff pour creamy chocolate over the bathers, who smear it over their bodies or lick it off.

Snow....

The first pic is just looking down my street & the second is my driveway. Im running both cars to melt everything. I think alltogether, we got about 8 inches. But its just blowing & blowing all over the place.
I think it was about 6:00 tonight when I took these pics.

top 8 idiots of 2006

Need a laugh?
TOP 8 MORONS OF 2006

1. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP? AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter
who's lacking intelligence.

2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS: Police in Oakland, CA spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, "Please come out and give yourself up."

3. WHAT WAS PLAN B??? An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.

4. THE GETAWAY! A man walked into a Topeka , Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

5. DID I SAY THAT??? Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words:
"Give me all your money or I'll shoot", the man shouted, "that's not what I said!".

6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING??? A man spoke frantically into the phone: "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart".
"Is this her first child?" the doctor asked. "No!" the man shouted, "This is her husband!"

7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED! In Modesto , CA, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun.
Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellooooooo)!

8. THE GRAND FINALE!!! Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they
tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied.
After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.
Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

DUI Hillbilly Style...

Thanks Laurie!


From the county where drunk driving is considered a sport.

Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Paris,
Tennessee . After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so
intoxicated that he could barely walk.

The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the
officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity in which he
tried his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his
car and fall into it. He sat there for a few minutes as a number of
other patrons left the bar and drove off.

Finally, he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a
fine, dry summer night), flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of
times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the
vehicle for ward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still
for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons' vehicles left.

At last, when his was the only car left in the parking lot, he pulled
out and drove slowly down the road.

The police officer, having waited patiently all this time, now started
up his patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man
over and administered a Breathalyzer test. To his amazement, the
Breathalyzer indicated no evidence that the man had consumed any alcohol
at all! Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to
accompany me to the police station. This Breathalyzer equipment must be
broken."

"I doubt it," said the truly proud Hillbilly . "Tonight I'm the
designated decoy."

The mashed potatoe song

From one of our very own subscribers, Mike P.

WHY?

Why, Why, Why
do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?
