FLORIDA NEEDS YOU ! The first Python Hunt in the Everglades starts this Sat., Jan. 12. and goes until Feb. 16 so you have plenty of time to get here.  After all, what could go wrong?  Running around the swampy heart of Florida looking for snakes 15 feet long can't be nearly as difficult as voting here and lots of us try that.  All you have to do is pay a $25 entry fee and take your training online---just head on over to   Just remember...a severed snake head is able to bite for up to an hour purely by reflex... smile.

To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.

Hotel/Motel Scam (This one is so simple it is shocking)

This is kind of scary if only because of how simple it is.

You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. When checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for all the charges for your room). You get to your room and settle in.

Someone calls the front desk and asks for (example) Room 620 - which happens to be your room. The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following, 'This is the front desk. When checking in, we came cross a problem with your charge card information. Please re-read me your credit card number and verify the last 3 digits numbers at the reverse side of your charge card.'

Not thinking anything, you might give this person your information, since the call seems to come from the front desk. But actually, it is a scam of someone calling from outside the hotel/front desk. They ask for a random room number. Then, ask you for credit card information and address information. Sounding so professional, that you do, thinking you are talking to the front desk.

If you ever encounter this problem on your vacation, tell the caller that you will be down at the front desk to clear up any problems. Then, go to the front desk and ask if there was a problem. If there was none, inform the manager of the hotel that someone called to scam you of your credit card information, acting like a front desk employee.

You'd be wise to eat at home and especially avoid McDonald's. Their McRib sandwich is made using "restructured meat technology" that's pretty darned gross.

Jokes and Cartoons

Groups of Americans were traveling by tour bus through
Holland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them
through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat's milk was
used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were
grazing. 'These' she explained, 'Are the older goats put out to pasture
when they no longer produce.' She then asked, 'What do you do in
America with your old goats?' A spry old gentleman answered, 'They send
us on bus tours!

Ladies...does your town have this?

One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship hour.
The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle.
Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out.
Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"

Helping me sort old clothes  into "save" and "give away" piles, my six-year-old daughter came across a garter belt. "What's this?" she asked.
"It's a garter belt," I said. Seeing that meant nothing to her, I added, "It's for holding up stockings."
"Ah," she said, carefully placing it in the "save" pile, "we'll use it next Christmas Eve."
