Wash Your Hands!

Let's all stop the dreaded bird flu pandemic thingy in its tracks shall we. Remember to wash your hands all the time from now on. In the event that some folks let it slip their minds let's install one of these handy "Didn't Wash Hands" signs in all the fire halls just to be sure.
Remember... only YOU can prevent the pandemic.. Wash Your Hands!

BTW.... Happy New Year all : )

Bill "Wescue Willy" Meets George Bush

George and Bill meet for the first time on George's campaign trail last summer. As the photo depicts Bill was not a happy camper when George wanted to plant a "wet one" on Bill's cheek as most politicians are apt to do.

Former Maryland Chief Dies Responding - In The Line Of Duty

Former Maryland Chief Dies Responding - In The Line Of Duty:

"Volunteers in Western Maryland are mourning the loss of their president, who died in a crash Saturday while responding to the fire station for a call.

Ed Wilburn, 64, was headed to Deep Creek Volunteer Fire Dept. on Saturday afternoon for a reported trailer fire when he apparently experienced a medical emergency, said Assistant Chief Jason King.

Wilburn lost control of his vehicle, and it veered off Md. 219, It ended up in a ditch about 25 feet off the highway, he said.

His fellow volunteers were diverted from the original call to respond to the crash. Wilburn was pulled from the wreckage, and CPR was initiated.

The resuscitative effort was continued en route to Garrett Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead."

Your Age Using Diner Math


It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read ... Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out! This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to go out to eat. (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50

5. Add 1756

6. If you have not had your birthday yet this year, subtract one.

7. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number

The first digit of this was your original number (I.e., how! Many times you want to go out to restaurants in a week.) The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

2006 is the only year that this will work. Pass it on.

"SOS" - Save Our Snowpersons- Won't You Help?

My friends.. do you remember the Snowman Relief Fund that was so successful with your help last year? (See January 2006 Archive) We actually saved three of our little frozen friends from meltdown. They are waiting to be "re-born" this year via cryogenics and the help of our freezer and prevailing winds.
This year, being politically correct, we are attempting to raise funds with our SOS fund. SOS stands for Save Our Snowpersons. For only $10.00 per day you can help our little frigid friends through the SASS (Sponsor A Special Snow person) program. Imagine a picture of your ASS (A Special Snow Person) and an additional letter from your ASS published on this Blog allowing everyone to witness your generosity during this wonderful winter season. Let's "snowball" this program together.
Much more info coming in the very near future.

Please send your name for your application... DON'T WAIT!!! Your ASS is at stake..

Note: Payment may be processed before your application is completed to ensure your ASS is safe and well rounded. In some cases the well rounded aspect has already begun.
