Can you spot the new toy? Got it up and running just in time to see Game 6 of the NBA finals. While I watched it on high def, unfortunately the Lakers came out with the low score and Boston won the Championship. For Kobe, his prayers went unanswered.

Why Did The Blonde Learn Geography?

She was tired of everyone thinking that blondes were stupid, and she didn’t like all these jokes. To end the injustice, she decided to prove to the world that she was smart. In order to prove herself, she chose to memorize the capital of every American state. It wasn’t an easy task, but she was determined and eventually managed to do it. A few days later she was in a bar, and heard a couple of men laughing at a blonde joke. This was the perfect opportunity to start righting all the wrongs that had been done to blondes in the past - she would set these men straight! Marching over at a rapid pace she announced, “It isn’t true that all blondes are stupid, and I will prove it. Just ask me the capital of any American state, and I will tell you what it is.” Although a little surprised, the men did challenge her and asked, “Ok, how about Arizona?” The Blonde, after pausing for a moments thought, proudly gave the answer,“A”!

In 1917, Salvation Army female volunteers known as “lassies” prepared thousands of fresh donuts to the homesick soldiers that served in France during World War I. National Donut Day was officially established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to raise much-needed funds during the Great Depression.

Thoughts on Wives . . .(not mine, of course!)

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. (Sacha Guitry) After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can’t face each other, but still they stay together. (Hemant Joshi) By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll be happy. If you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher. (Socrates) Woman inspires us to great things, and prevents us from achieving them. (Dumas) The great question… which I have not been able to answer… is, “What does a woman want? (Sigmund Freud) I had some words with my wife, and she had some paragraphs with me. (Anonymous) “Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.” (Henny Youngman) “I don’t worry about terrorism. I was married for two years.” (Sam Kinison) “There’s a way of transferring funds that is even faster than electronic banking. It’s called
