Crash Test

Old Vs. New
Which would win, a 1959 Chevy Bel Air or a Chevy 2009 Malibu?

This test was done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It clearly illustrates the improvement in automobile safety in the past 50 years. If I was a betting man, I would have thought the older Chevy would have been the safest car. We should feel good about the improvement in safety… and think, the older cars did not have seat belts!

New Week
January 2010 is gradually going past, and pretty fast. I hope you have a grand week. We’re hoping for an early Spring here in E Tennessee. This winter has been a little harsh. We’ll find out on Groundhog Day, but I heard they were changing Groundhog day to Al Gore day. If he does see his shadow he starts scheduling global warming speeches. If he doesn’t see his shadow, things are good to be colder than normal, so Al just lays low.

Joke of the Day

One day, a teacher, a garbage collector and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one question.

St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that crashed into an iceberg? They just made a movie about it." The teacher answered quickly, "That would be the Titanic." St. Peter let him through the gate.

St. Peter turned to the garbage man and decided to make the question a little harder, "How many people died on the ship?" Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered, "About 1,500." "That's right! You may enter."

St. Peter then turned to the lawyer. "Name them."
