I had a wonderful birthday thanks to my family and friends. Thanks for all the birthday card, phone calls, emails and blog comments I’ve received the past few days. I’ve learned that reaching 70 is not very painful. In fact, it has been just plain enjoyable! Here’s a few examples that illustrate my reasons for having such a happy birthday. There would not be any happiness without love.
The following is here because I love each of you.
This may help keep you safe in the days to come.
Cruise Control & Wet Roads
I received this the other day and thought it was worth sharing. If you don’t have time to read the following, just remember
Do Not Use Cruise Control
When the Roads are Wet or Icy.
Here’s the email:
|”A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago and totaled her car. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence! When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened|| |
Wet Roads –
he told her something that every driver should know - NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON. She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.
”But the highway patrolman told her that if the cruise control is on when your car begins to hydro-plane and your tires lose contact with the pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an airplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.
”The patrolman said this warning should be listed, on the driver's seat sun-visor: NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and drive a safe speed - but we don't tell them to use the cruise control only when the pavement is dry.”
It’s True! Check this out on Snopes.

Joke of the Day
A man went into a bar after work and ordered a drink. As he started drinking his beer, he heard a female voice saying, 'You've got nice hair'.
The man looked all around him but couldn't see where the voice came from. A minute later he heard the same voice saying, 'You are a handsome man.'
The man was really puzzled by this so he asked the bartender what was going on.
The bartender replied, 'It's the nuts - they're complimentary.'
