Remembering President Ron Reagan

don't judge a book by its cover.

Quote of the Day
There's lots of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it.
~Josh Billings

Joke of the Day
Bubba goes to the revival and listens to the preacher.

After awhile the preacher asks anyone with needs to be prayed over to come forward to the front of the altar.

Bubba gets in line, and when it's his turn the preacher asks: "Bubba, what do you want me to pray about for you?"

Bubba replies: "Preacher, I need you to pray for my hearing."

The preacher puts one finger in Bubba's ear, and he places the other hand on top of Bubba's head and prays and prays.

After a few minutes, the preacher removes his hands, stands back and asks : "Bubba, how is your hearing now?"

Bubba says, "'I don't know, preacher, it ain't until next Wednesday".
