Hello all

Much to the chagrin of many, I am sure, I have not disappeared, simply gone on a mini-hiatus. I had so many topics to hit but not everything is fit for printing and I have been a bit lazy at the keyboard, and we had the last two of our main machines decide to act up and die (no, not a virus) and, well, life kept interrupting.

Coming soon:

  • Trials of a wannabe mechanic
  • Trials of a wannabe system/network administrator
  • The niece grows up
  • The Child. Nuff Said.
  • Adventures in Baby Making
  • Ghetto car accessories
  • Television reviews
  • Vista installation review
  • Aging parents
  • The Art of Charity
  • My next upgrade project
  • Mega-Garage sale 2007
  • Pros and Cons of buying a Sony Playstation 3
  • I love Max
  • The state of my industry
  • *&%*(&%* Toronto Sports Teams
and much, much more. Plus, the usual selection of jokes and comments and cartoons.

Oh yeah, stop reading this and go work and/or enjoy the lovely warming weather.

Today's Quirk

Sort of a funny, sort of a lesson. There is the famous book "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves" which explains why it is important to be grammatically correct or risk your statements to be misinterpreted. Here is a different example of misinterpretation.

Go to

Click on "get directions"

Enter "Halifax" in the from field and "London" in the destination field.

Observe the instruction given on the 24th step of your journey.

Now, change the destination field to read "London, ON" to see the difference.

Strange, eh? :)

Today's funny

Subject: Marriage

You have two choices in life:

You can stay single and be miserable, or get married and wish you were dead.

At a cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?"
"Yes, I am. I married the wrong man."

A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds: "Husband Wanted"
Next day she received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: "You can have mine."

When a woman steals your husband, there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.

A woman is incomplete until she is married. Then she is finished.

A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?"
Father replied, "I don't know, son, I'm still paying."

A young son asked, "Is it true, Dad, that in some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?"
Dad replied, "That happens in every country, son"

Then there was a woman who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married, and by then, it was too late."

If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say -- talk in your sleep.

Just think, if it wasn't for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.

First guy says, "My wife's an angel!"
Second guy remarks, "You're lucky. Mine's still alive."


Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with their nine children. A blind man joins them after a few minutes. When the bus arrives, they find it overloaded and only the wife and the nine kids are able to fit onto the bus. So the husband and the blind man decide to walk. After a while, thehusband gets irritated by the clicking of the stick of the blind man as he taps it on the sidewalk, and says to him, "Why don't you put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick? That clicking sound is driving me crazy."

The blind man replies, "If you would've put a rubber at the end of YOUR stick, we'd be riding the bus ... so shut the hell up."

Today's funnies

From BT in MTL

Reasons not to flirt

The wife got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone. He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by her not going. So he took his costume and away he went.

The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, woke without
pain, and as it was still early, decided to go to the party. As her husband didn't know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not with him. So she joined the party and soon spotted her husband in his costume, cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice "chick" he could and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.

His wife went up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his new partner high and dry and devoted his time to her. She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband. After more drinks he finally whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had passionate intercourse in the back seat. Just before unmasking at
midnight , she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and got into bed, wondering what kind of explanation he would make up for his outrageous behaviour.

She was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of time he had. "Oh, the same old thing. You know I never have a good time when you're not there."

Then she asked," Did you dance much?"

He replied, "I'll tell you; I never even danced one dance. When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the spare room and played poker all evening."

"You must have looked really silly wearing that costume playing poker all night!", she said with unashamed sarcasm.

To which the
husband replied, "Actually, I gave my costume to your brother; apparently he had the time of his life."

Today's funny.

Short and Funny

I dialed a number and got the following recording:

"I am not available right now, but

Thank you for caring enough to call.
I am making some changes in my life.
Please leave a message after the
Beep. If I do not return your call,
You are one of the changes."

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

My wife and I had words,
But I didn't get to use mine.


Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses.

Blessed are those who can give without remembering
And take without forgetting.


The irony of life is that, by the time

You're old enough to know your way
Around, you're not going anywhere.

God made man before woman so as to give him time to think
Of an answer for her first question.


I was always taught to respect my elders,
But it keeps getting harder to find one.
