Something Useful and FREE

Just in case you didn't know about this, it is something you need to know. You can dial this number: 1-800-466-4411 for free 411 service for businesses.

It works like this. You dial the number. You are asked for city and state. Then you are asked for the business type. After that you will be given choices and after you select the right choice, it will dial the number for you.

I added this number to my cell phone contacts. It is especially handy when you are away from home and a convenient phone book. Once we were driving to Bristol to check on a new appliance. While on the road, I got concerned that the store we were visiting might not be open. So, I dialed 800-466-4411 and after telling them Bristol, Tennessee. Then gave appliances as the type of business, they gave me the name of the store and dialed the number for me. I learned easily that the store was open and we could continue our travels.

Joke of the Day
A cowboy, who is visiting Wyoming from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."

The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona, the other is in Colorado. When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.

"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains. "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

"Hasn't affected my brothers though."
