A Sensible Solution

A Sensible Solution

Subject: Hats Off To Israel

FINALLY — A great alternative to body scanners at airports . . .

The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners at the airports.

It’s a booth you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you.
They see this as a win-win for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It also would eliminate the costs of a long and expensive trial. Justice would be swift. Case closed!

You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system , "Attention standby passengers — we now have a seat available on flight number XXXX. Shalom!"

Thanksgiving Divorce

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this,"

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."

This was just so timely and too funny not to share. :)

Stuff from My Email

Thought For the Day:  Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I was going through my email and such today and came across a couple of graphic freebies. Santas for use in digital creations from Psychotactics. Veer is giving away fonts, stock images, and more plus a weekly sweepstakes.

I ordered a mushroom pizza, not a pizza mushroom.

Urbanna Oyster Festival

I left Walter sleeping at the house on Friday and made a quick trip to the Urbanna Oyster Festival.

The oyster fritters cooked up by the Lions' Club were to die for. YUM!! I even made sure to bring Walt some home. He'd have surely been disappointed to find out that I had gone and he'd missed out on them. I even found him some alligator sausage and jalapeno crab poppers to sample too.

I found these really neat looking things called Hedgeapples.  They will look great in a bowl over the holidays, but turns out that there a lot of different things that can be done with them.  There is even a whole website devoted to them www.hedgeapple.com

Walter is even thinking of trying to grow one for the yard....We will see how that goes.

The funniest thing that I saw on my trip was the sign going into Urbanna which said, "Town Closed Friday".  You can go into town just not by car, but it is too funny.
