People tell me that my sarcasm and cynicism will get me into trouble some day. We'll see.

Another Non-brunette nor Redhead

A man watched as his non-brunette nor redhead girlfriend got herself a glass of water from the kitchen faucet, where she proceeded to pour a little bit of it into the sink.

She sat and drank the water while reading her paper.

A bit later, she got up to get herself another drink. Again, she filled the glass, then dumped some of it in the sink.

Curiosity got the better of the man, and even though experience should have taught him otherwise, he asked her why she did that.

"Didn't you read this morning's paper?" she asked. "The city has asked residents to voluntarily conserve about ten percent of our water usage."

Chinese Toys Found Unsafe

To a child, taking away their new toy and promising a replacement, (after a few weeks) is like taking away their puppy. Or it might be similar to taking away a wedding ring and saying, "Don't worry, Honey, I'll have one back to you REAL soon - and THIS one will be soooo much better!"

Yet many children across the nation will be faced with the same situation as parents play tug'o'war with their kids' prized dolls and toy trucks in the wake of Chinese exports found to be hazardous to children. Some of these toys have been found tainted with lead paint and having small parts that present a choking hazard. And much of this is in answer to our desire for cheaper and cheaper toys from Walmart and Target.

I have a solution. Let's all boycott these "cheap" expensive toys our kids have got to have and try to acquire vintage Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls. They're safe, reliable, and if my kid sister's experience with them some 40 years ago are any indication, a whole lot of fun to play with.

Warning! Warning!

Here's a "rope light" I bought for over our kitchen cabinets.

Do you think there are enough warning tags on the cord?

Why Can't a Woman - Be Like a Man?

Girls act like Boys when they can't Smell. Scientists have determined that when they disable certain scent glands in female mice, they tend to act like male mice - including humping other females.

One female mouse to another:

"Would you blow your nose, for cryin' out loud? I'm not that kind of girl!"
