Bethany, Happy Birthday!

A special salute to our daughter, Bethany White, who is 33 years old today! She makes us proud! She finished her degree at the University of Memphis in Journalism, and then got a MS degree at the University of Missouri. After working a few years in Lafayette, Louisiana, she now lives and works in Rochester, NY as a Features Design Editor. She's an expert on computer graphics and every time she comes home I get her to teach me a little more about my Photoshop type programs. She such a wonderful and loving daughter. More pictures of Bethany can be found here.

Joke of the Day

A young girl who was writing a paper for school came to her father and asked, "Dad, what is the difference between anger and exasperation?" The father replied, "It is mostly a matter of degree. Let me show you what I mean." With that the father went to the telephone and dialed a number at random. To the man who answered the phone, he said, "Hello, is Melvin there?"

The man answered, "There is no one living here named Melvin. Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial them?" "See," said the father to his daughter. "That man was not a bit happy with our call. He was probably very busy with something and we annoyed him."

"Now watch...." The father dialed the number again. "Hello, is Melvin there?" asked the father. "Now look here!" came the heated reply. "You just called this number and I told you that there is no Melvin here! You've got a lot of nerve calling again!" The receiver slammed down hard. The father turned to his daughter and said, "You see, that was anger."

"Now I'll show you what exasperation means." He dialed the same number, and when a violent voice roared, "Hello!" the father calmly said, "Hello, this is Melvin. Have there been any calls for me?"
