President's Day

As you know, today is President's Day. A good time for us to be thankful for all those presidents that we have had that helped our nation survive and become strong. We appreciate the service of those that have put our nation above personal ambition, and did what was right for the USA.

Zachary's Basketball Game
Zachary had another good basketball game on Saturday. I put this little movie together to show part of the game. It's only lasts about 2 minutes.

Quotes of the Day
George Washington is one of the beacons
placed at intervals along the highroad of history.
~ Orestes Ferrara

Abraham Lincoln needs no marble shaft to perpetuate his name;
his words are the most enduring monument,
and will forever live in the hearts of the people.
~ Osborn H. Oldroyd

Joke of the Day

A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa."

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."

This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay," says the lawyer, "your turn".

She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mail to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00.

The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"

Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
