    You'll have to ask Cheffie if somebody might have poached them!

    Missing socks were traced to my son's room when he lived with us.
    But that's not the case now.
    There is a "sock killer" in this house and I intend to find it.

    There is a black hole in outer space known as the "hosezone".

    All of the socks that have have gone missing can be found there.

    How do they get there, you ask?

    A combination of the needs of the wearer to have the matching pair, coupled with the number of revoutions per minute the dryer tumbles the socks at combined with the drying temperature and drying time sends one of the sock into the "hosezone".

    NASA is attemting to find everyone's socks by using the Hubble space telescope.

    I think perhaps,, no I better not say. It might get me in trouble.

    Eating healthy is not boring. Your heart does not need all that cholesterol. If you don't do it for yourself, then do it for your family. Do it because heart attacks are the leading cause of death among firefighters and all unhealthy eating will catch up to you. Do it so we are not reading your LODD one day saying that you suffered a heart attack. I'd kind of like to have you around for a few more years as would your family. OK. I'll get off my soapbox now.

    But, Cheffie; eating healthy costs more money. And my Road King requires Ultra Premium at $3.00 a gallon.
    I get a physical with a blood work up every year. Despite being 60 lbs overweight, I am in "good physical condition".
    I am working on removing the 60 lbs, but my weakness are those times around home when I'm not busy. That's when I eat; I mean, "snack".
    Plus, growing up; because we couldn't afford alot of meat, Mom loaded us up on starches, which I still enjoy today. Potatoes in all their forms and bread are my "crack".
    It takes work, but like you said, I want to be around for a few more years. I want to enjoy the new knees!

    I will agree that eating healthy cost more. Everytime I see my total at Whole Foods for a few days of food it is .
    But at the end of the day, it is worth it to me. I only have one body and what you put in your body fuels it. Think of it as giving your body the Ultra Premium fuel.


    take care, stay safe and I look forward to the day when I get to meet those new knees..

    Is she Blonde?

    There is a factory in America which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys, the toy laughs when you tickle it under the arm.

    A new employee is hired at the Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 0800. The next day at 0845 there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman from the assembly line throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

    The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself so the two men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.
    At the end of the line stands the new employee surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's.

    She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles. The two men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.

    The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches the woman.

    "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday. Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles".

    ok. But it will take a bit more forward planning with the baking to have it FedExed to you. Maybe I should bake on Sunday instead. By time I finish I can drop it off at FedEx Monday. This weekend though I won't have time to bake on Sunday. Maybe next weekend????

    Is that the full postal code? I thought both parts had 3 letter/number combinations.

    You Canadians are certainly quick off the mark when it comes to food. You even beat out Malahat27 and he is in DC. You better share if I Send you a few dozen treats. They may be reading this thread too you know.

    Superchef.

    I appreciate the sentiment. No need to go through the trouble of shipping baked goods.. They'll just get held up at customs... The customs agents are law enforcement, they can smell powdered sugar a mile away! And besides, I just picked up a bag of double stuff oreo's and a jug of milk.

    If you must bake for firefighters, perhaps a bay area fire station would appreciate your vanilla scones and chocolate buns.


    Our postal codes are L#L #L# . I must have gotten too excited and dropped the last number.

    Happy baking.

    On THAT NOTE you can of course send them this way as I'll be at the Company monthly meeting on Monday evening, and of course there are no Customs agents to do any mile away sniffing. Who needs special trained dogs when you can have your very own Customs Agent? LOL

    At least you bought the double stuff rual. I was rather hoping to lure you off the oreos and newtons rual (and I would send them if asked!). Rick, I can't shop them till Monday so you would not get them till Tuesday. Of course if they were sent to the Embassy, you would still be a good boy and share wouldn't you??

    59... not bad for a first try. Perhaps you should seek a little counseling and try again.
