Click on the following picture and learn how our tax dollars are being use. It certainly disappoints me that our representatives in Washington do not take better care of our hard earned money. Click on the following to watch an interesting and informative report:

Did You Have a Good April Fool’s Day? 
I always enjoy 4/1 and have fun doing my blog. I fooled a few people with the post about Interstate 81 closing for repairs. But not with the other two: The Taco Liberty Bell was an old one I borrowed as was the new fruit, Pinanas.

Have a great weekend. No more tricks until next year. You believe that?

Today you have the opportunity to brighten
someone’s life. Don’t miss it.

Quote of the Day
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Joke of the Day

A boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to the youngster, the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home? "

"Yes," whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him? " the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."

Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?

"Yes," came the answer.

"May I talk with her?

"Again the small voice whispered, "No."

Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child.

"Is there anyone there besides you? " the boss asked the child.

"Yes," whispered the child, "a policeman.”

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman? "

"No, he's busy," whispered the child. "Busy doing what? " asked the boss.

"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman," came the whispered answer.

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is that noise? "

"A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there? " asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice, the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper."

Alarmed, concerned, and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "What are they searching for?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle, "Me. "
