information calls when they don't have to. Most of us do not
carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation

option, simply dial:(800) FREE411 or (800) 373-3411without incurring
any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now.This

A young man excitedly tells his mother he's fallen in love and is going
to get married.
He says, "Just for fun, Ma, I'm going to bring over 3 women and you try
and guess which one I'm going to marry."
The mother agrees.
The next day, he brings 3 beautiful women into the house and sits
them down on the couch and they chat for a while. He then says,
"Okay, Ma. Guess which one I'm going to marry."
She immediately replies, "The redhead in the middle."
"That's amazing, Ma. You're right. How did you know?"
"I don't like her."

“Hey, Mom, can I tell you something?” puffed five-year-old Terry, as he
rushed around the store with his mother.
“No, Terry, I'm too busy,” said his mother.
A little while later he tried again, “Hey, Mom…”
“Don’t bother me. I’m trying to think,” his mother interrupted.
Finally at home, Terry said, “Now can I tell you?”
“Oh, yes, what is it?” said his mother in exasperation.
“I wanted to tell you that your pants have a big rip in the back.”

I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year old came

Mommy has a baby growing in her tummy."
"I know," she replied, but what's growing in your butt?"

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride
over anytime I want.'
replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous
challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching
the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I
can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly
things. Take a little more time and think of something that could
possibly help mankind.'
The biker thought about it for a long
time. Finally, he said, 'God, I wish that I, and all men, could
understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's
thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what
she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains
when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.
God replied: 'You want two lanes or four on that bridge?

Billy Graham's Prayer For
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!
Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek
your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who
call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited
the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and
called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We
have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected
to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have
abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's
Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with
profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have
ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it
enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's
help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become
our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
